LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. (LRL) announced today that it has acquired the intellectual property and certain other assets of Streetlight Intelligence Inc. (SLQ) of Victoria, British Columbia. With this acquisition, LRL has become the first company in Canada to combine energy-efficient HPS and LED street lighting with smart wireless technology. “LRL now brings to market a single-source solution for customers, integrating control options with street lighting fixtures to further improve energy-efficiency and reduce total life-cycle costs,” said Charles Cartmill, President and CEO of LRL.
Finding clean, safe and efficient ways to provide street lighting is a challenge faced by municipalities all across North America. In some jurisdictions, energy costs for street lighting alone represent over 50% of municipal energy budgets. “These wireless control options are ideally suited to our Satellite™ Series LED fixtures and will allow our customers to seamlessly tailor light levels to their own needs, as well as monitor fixture operation and energy consumption,” stated Mr. Cartmill.
“Adaptive lighting controls and monitoring capabilities are increasingly in demand as municipalities and other customers seek ways to control costs related to energy consumption and maintenance of fixtures,” added Mr. Cartmill. “We can now provide a totally integrated approach to energy-efficient street lighting, while at the same time adapting to the needs of individual communities.”
Recognizing the outstanding contributions of many of SLQ’s employees, LRL has extended employment offers to key individuals at SLQ and plans on retaining one of the current manufacturing and storage facilities in Victoria.
