October 18, 2010, SATELLITE BEACH, Fla.(Coal Geology)- Lighting Science Group’s (OTC Bulletin Board: LSCG) high-performance PROLIFIC series LED street lights will soon line the streets of Salt Lake City, Utah. Compared with traditional high pressure sodium (HPS) street lights, the PROLIFIC LED series street lights are 50% more efficient, provide more uniform light distribution, increase light levels, and will save Salt Lake City tens of thousands of dollars each year in energy and maintenance cost. The project is being paid for using Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
“The Lighting Science Prolific Series street lights look great, we will have less outages, and we are saving energy and money,” said Mike Barry, Transportation Engineer for the Salt Lake City Transportation Division. “Retrofitting existing HPS street lights with Lighting Science LED street lights will reduce the city’s annual energy consumption by 885,271 kWh (kilowatt hours) — eliminating approximately 636 metric tons of CO2 emissions each year.”
The Lighting Science’s PROLIFIC Series street lights are the perfect one-to-one replacement for HPS streetlights — easy to install, high lumen output, maintenance-free operation, long-lasting, and outstanding energy savings. The PROLIFIC LED technology eliminates costly re-lamping and re-ballasting of HPS street lights and direct line wiring is used in place of starters or capacitors to eliminate traditional maintenance issues. To ensure performance and reliability, Lighting Science Group’s PROLIFIC Series street light was tested under the rigorous LM-79 process by an independent laboratory approved by the U.S. Department of Energy’s CALiPER program.
“With rising energy costs across world, cities like Salt Lake City are looking for ways save energy — Lighting Science Group’s LED products are a perfect solution,” said Zach Gibler, CEO of Lighting Science Group Corporation. “The LED street lights provided will improve both the environment and the city’s bottom line by delivering a 50% energy savings over HPS street lights and will last approximately 5 times as long. The Salt Lake City project is another significant win for Lighting Science Group in the infrastructure market and exemplifies the clear leadership and high-performance capabilities of the Company.”
