Streetlight Intelligence announces Canadian National Demonstration Program

    VICTORIA, June 19 /CNW/ - Streetlight Intelligence Inc. ("SLQ") is
pleased to announce the initiation of a "National Demonstration Program" for
its Lumen IQ(TM) streetlight optimization technology. The program entails the
deployment of turnkey "demonstration installations" at approximately 60
locations across Canada for a period of up to 90 days each.
    The National Demonstration Program will be funded through the support of
Natural Resources Canada ("NRCan"), who will be contributing up to $185,000,
participating local governments and SLQ.
    The purpose of the National Demonstration Program is to provide Canadian
municipalities with an opportunity to experience how Lumen IQ(TM) technology
can significantly reduce the energy required to operate street lights. With an
estimated 6.5 million street lights in Canada today, SLQ believes there exists
a real opportunity to save significant energy and corresponding expenditures -
simply through more efficient operation of the country's existing street light
    The Lumen IQ(TM) adaptive lighting control system can be used for more
effective street light energy management, improved lamp performance as well as
system-wide communications for centralized asset management. The demonstration
installations will be in municipalities that are representative of all
geographic areas of Canada, including large and small centers with diverse
energy costs and a wide range of energy usage and operational contingencies.
As a condition of their participation, municipalities will be required to
dedicate the appropriate personnel for installation and ongoing management
during the evaluation period, as well as provide performance data and
qualitative responses to a series of technical and social questions relating
to the technology.
    The National Demonstration Program will provide reliable, objective and
conclusive data on the energy-savings capability of Lumen IQ(TM) technology
and that data will be shared with all interested municipalities for reference
as they look to adopt and finance practical solutions for reducing their
energy consumption, and to explore public private partnership (P3) financing
for large scale implementations.
    "More energy efficient streetlight technology will benefit the
environment and reduce the energy bills of local governments," said the
Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Natural Resources. "This new project will
gather important data that will help communities across Canada make better
energy efficiency decisions."
    "We are very pleased with this recent support from NRCan to move the
National Demonstration Program forward," states Vince Krynski, Chief Executive
Officer of SLQ. "In many communities, street lighting accounts for up to
one-third of their overall electricity consumption. Our technology can cut
this bill nearly in half. With this program underway, we will be able to
educate local and provincial governments that a substantial energy and
environmental savings solution is available today and that it is proven to be
both reliable and cost effective."
