Pattison Outdoor Invests In A Green Future

TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Pattison Outdoor announced the success of the complete overhaul of their lighting system infrastructure. Over the past 6 month period, a total of 7,800 outdoor billboards were converted to new energy efficient LED light fixtures.

The project was designed to coincide with the shorter days of the fall and winter when boards are illuminated for longer periods of time.

"By converting the boards to LED's, we have lowered our electrical consumption by 66%," says Randy Otto, President - Pattison Outdoor. Steve McGregor VP Operations adds, "We are constantly researching environmentally friendly alternatives and innovative technologies to minimize the impact on the environment in the neighbourhoods we operate in."

Previously, the Holophane fixtures consumed approximately 2,000 kwh per year while the new LED fixtures will consume approximately 580 kwh per year. This will reduce Pattison's overall energy consumption by over 11,100,000 kwh per year the equivalent to taking 931 homes "off the grid" each year.

Pattison Outdoor Advertising is Canada's largest outdoor, transit and digital advertising company with 25 sales offices coast to coast.  Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, Pattison Outdoor is a division of The Jim Pattison Group.
