Lighting Science Group Fights Rising Energy Cost in Spain With Ultra-Efficient and Maintenance Free LED Street Lights

August 12, 2010

SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Continuing to re-light the world with ultra-efficient LED lighting, Lighting Science Group’s (LSCG.PK) high performance PROLIFIC series street lights now line the streets of Banyeres de Mariola Alicante, Spain. Compared with traditional HID street lights, the PROLIFIC LED series street lights are 50% more efficient, provide more uniform light distribution, increase light levels, and will save Banyeres de Mariola Alicante thousands of dollars in energy cost over the life of the fixtures. Another outstanding feature: they are maintenance free.

“Communities all over Spain are struggling with higher energy cost — installing Lighting Science Group’s PROLIFIC street lights was a perfect solution to ease that problem,” said Mr. Antonio Belda Valero, Mayor of Banyeres de Mariola Alicante. “We looked at many other products on the market, but Lighting Science Group’s LED street light outshined them all in price, performance and longevity.”

To ensure performance and reliability, the PROLIFIC series was tested under the rigorous LM-79 process by an independent laboratory approved by the U.S. Department of Energy’s CALiPER program. The test results show that the PROLIFIC street lights outperform competing products on the market. Furthermore, the maintenance free PROLIFIC LED technology eliminates costly re-lamping and re-ballasting of HID street lights and direct line wiring is used in place of starters or capacitors to further eliminate traditional maintenance issues.

“The PROLIFIC series LED street lights bring into balance the need to responsibly illuminate roadways and reducing energy consumption and maintenance cost. The PROLIFIC series is the perfect solution for communities and cities all around the world that are looking reduce energy use,” said Zach Gibler, Chief Executive Officer of Lighting Science Group. “I would like to thank Eyeleds Spain SL for introducing our cutting edge products into Spain and INELBO S.A.U. for installing them.”
