Metrolight Demonstrates eHID Technology and Successful UK Applications

Oct. 10, 2010

Birmingham, England (October 11, 2010)---Metrolight, the leading developer and manufacturer of Smart Electonic Ballasts that power High Intensity Discharge (eHID) energy efficient lighting systems, demonstrated collective lighting solutions with several of its key UK partners at “The Energy Event 2010”, which took place September 8-9 in Birmingham at the National Motorcycle Museum.

Metrolight’s patented technology, combined with its partner offerings, delivers a lighting solution that cuts energy consumption by up to 65% and lowers maintenance costs by 50% without sacrificing light quality or lumen maintenance.
By providing intelligent and flexible control capabilities, end users are able to adjust light levels to the exact amount needed, providing energy savings of up to 20%.
With over 500,000 units installed in Europe, the U.S. and around the world, the proven Metrolight energy-efficient solutions have accumulated over 2 billion energy efficient operating hours.
Several of the key Metrolight-UK successes demonstrated at “The Energy Event 2010” included:
  •  Cold Storage for the UK Supermarket Group: 12 distribution centers for a supermarket chain delivering 49% energy savings, 1.4 year simple payback and an annual savings of £568,000 or $886,590.
  • Streetlighting at West Ferry Circus, London, England: Underground roundabout (traffic circle) lighted 24/7/365 delivering energy savings of 63%, a simple payback of 2.5 years and an annual savings of 72,000 or $112, 385.
  • Highways Agency-Area 14: Highway lighting in the north east of England delivering a 43% energy savings, a simple payback of 3.9 years and an annual savings of £57,600 or $89, 908.
During “The Energy Event 2010”, Holophane, a global custom manufacturer of HID lighting systems and a Metrolight strategic partner in the UK, joined Metrolight to demonstrate its lighting control capabilities. Robert Aiken, Holophane’s Lighting Control Systems Manager, delivered a presentation on “HOLOS2 lighting controls from Holophane in partnership with Metrolight: Optimum Light with Minimum Emissions” at the ESTA session on Thursday, September 9th, 2010. A downloadable version of Aiken’s presentation is available on the company website.
Also joining Metrolight were ENER-G plc, a company that delivers sustainable and energy efficient technologies to business-to-business organizations worldwide; Signature and Metrolight’s UK distributor, John Wilkinson Ltd, a supplier of  Street Lighting and Traffic Solutions to Local Authorities and Contractors throughout the UK;  eLPT (Light Planning Techniques), Metrolight’s integration partner and provider of complete energy saving lighting solutions for interior and exterior applications and A.L.P. Europe, a Metrolight distribution partner and global leader in the manufacture and distribution of lighting components. 
“Business in the UK has more than doubled, a testament to both our strategic partners and our technology. Light quality and lumen maintenance are such important factors in providing safety, security, aesthetics, good visibility and excellent color rendition. Metrolight’s solutions provide dramatic energy savings, lowered maintenance costs, extended lamp life and advanced control without sacrificing any of the benefits so important to the applications demonstrated at “The Energy Event 2010”, said Eli Ringer, VP Global Sales, Metrolight.
