Cree Extends LED Street Lighting Leadership Delivering Up To A 15 Percent Performance Increase

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) announces the next performance upgrade to the LEDway ® Series LED Street Light. These energy-efficient luminaires, provided in several versions and tailored to specific applications, are the ideal replacement for outdated high pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) fixtures. Providing significant improvements over the prior LEDway Series, select versions of the new LEDway Series LED Street Lights provide up to 20 percent additional energy savings and increased lumen output, while other versions provide up to 15 percent higher lumen output and additional energy savings. These improvements can help municipalities reduce operating cost where budgets are tight – lowering the total cost of ownership while providing the same illumination performance.

“Cree is committed to helping municipalities and facility owners lower their lighting energy costs and maintenance expenses,” said Greg Merritt, vice president, lighting at Cree. “The increased performance of the new LEDway Series can improve payback up to 25 percent compared to the previous generation and strengthens the argument to replace antiquated lighting technologies. These cost savings can greatly benefit municipalities and free up money for other expenses.”

Engineered to optimize illumination and economic performance, Cree ® LEDway Street Lights boast an industry-leading ten year warranty and offer more than 20 optical distribution patterns, flexible drive currents and multiple lumen packages. The versatility of the LEDway luminaire lets municipalities fully optimize the LED fixture to meet application and project goals.

Cree LEDway Series Street Lights are sold through Cree lighting sales channels. Visit http://www.cree.com/lighting/ledwayseries for more information.
