PowerSecure International, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWR) today announced it has received new awards for over 25,000 of its energy efficient LED lights. The new awards include its new EfficientLights ® walk-in cooler lights for retailers, and its SecureLite ® Area Light for utilities. The lights for these orders are expected to be shipped primarily during the last three quarters of 2012, and the Company expects revenue from these orders to be approximately $5 million. Retailers are investing in PowerSecure’s EfficientLights technology because of its improved quality of light and powerful return on investment, including reduced energy and maintenance costs. Similarly, utilities are investing in PowerSecure’s SecureLite technology because of the financial and operations benefits it delivers, including a better quality of light compared to traditional HID lighting, two-thirds reduction in energy usage, four-fold extension of light life, significantly reduced maintenance costs, and Dark Sky compliant design. SecureLite also incorporates PowerSecure’s breakthrough dusk-to-dawn controls to maximize efficiency and reliability, industry-leading surge protection technology which surpasses industry standards, and “tool less” entry for easy maintenance. Sidney Hinton, CEO of PowerSecure, said, “We are thrilled to announce these new LED lighting awards. Both our EfficientLights walk-in cooler lights for retailers, and our SecureLite Area Light for utilities are relatively recent product introductions which are seeing nice early traction in the marketplace. 2012 continues to be a year in which retailers and utilities are moving from ‘testing’ to ‘adoption’ of our new lighting applications – driven by the compelling economic model and quality of light our products deliver.” About PowerSecure PowerSecure International, Inc. is a leading provider of Utility and Energy Technologies to electric utilities, and their industrial, institutional, and commercial customers.
