PowerSecure Announces New LED Light Sales Totaling $15 Million to Three Major Retailers

Wake Forest, North Carolina USA– PowerSecure International, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWR) today announced it has received orders for new LED lights totaling $15 million from three major retailers. The new orders are for PowerSecure’s EfficientLights LED lighting technology, and include each of its in-store product lines, including reach-in case lights, walk-in freezer/cooler lights, and shelf and canopy lights. The retailers are making these green technology investments to improve the quality of light in their stores, reduce their energy consumption by approximately 70%, eliminate mercury-containing fluorescent lights, and extend their light life five-fold.

PowerSecure’s EfficientLights LED lighting brand is specifically engineered for the unique needs of retailers, and to deliver an improved quality of light to enhance the illumination of product displays and create a better customer experience. Additionally, new research shows that LED lights in retail food cases can also deliver bottom line benefits to retailers by extending product shelf life, including meat products, thereby reducing waste and increasing profit margins (see www.k-state.edu/today/announcement.php?id=1843).

Sidney Hinton, PowerSecure’s CEO, said, “We are excited to announce these new orders to serve three major retail chains with our LED lighting products. Our lighting technology is designed to deliver exactly what our customers want – lights that make their product displays “pop”, save energy, and reduce maintenance cost. We expect to complete all of these sales in 2012. As we anticipated, these new orders reflect retail customers’ expanded budgets in 2012 for LED lighting upgrades – a function of our expanded product line and the increasing confidence that the economy is beginning to firm.”
