Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVLT), (“Revolution Lighting”) a leader in advanced LED lighting technology, today announced its latest international retrofit installation project with Gasolineras Don Justo, a group of 11 gas stations and a subdivision of the largest gas station chain in Mexico, owned and operated by the Mexican government with thousands of locations throughout the country.
Seesmart, a Revolution Lighting brand, has installed a total of 16, 90-watt LED canopy lights in the first of 11 stations to be retrofitted in Leon, Mexico. The first installations have resulted in a 70 percent improvement in light output levels within the past month.
Seesmart’s LED canopy lights provide a 50,000 hour life, and deliver greater than 50 percent savings in energy consumption, while emitting no noise or UV emissions, with no flickering.
“We are thrilled with the improvements in light output and energy savings the Seesmart products have provided within just the first 30 days of use,” said Gasolineras Don Justo station owner Juan C. Lomelian Albez. “Upgrading our stations with the energy efficient, LED lights not only help to reduce costs, but keep our customers safe with prolonged, vibrant light. We look forward to retrofitting our 10 additional gas stations in the coming months, and expanding the Seesmart LED installation to our regional group of 55 stations.”
Gas stations in Mexico are owned in groups of 50-60 locations by few to several owners, who are becoming increasingly aware of the cost benefits and overall improvements that LED lights have to offer.
“As LED adoption and demand continues to expand throughout Mexico, Revolution Lighting is able to provide our commercial and industrial customers with the best quality, certified products and trusted partnership they are looking for,” said Charles J. Schafer, president and chief financial officer of Revolution Lighting Technologies. “There is enormous potential for further growth within the country and we will continue to supply our innovative products to customers in Mexico as the LED market continues to evolve.”
