The Company Installs High Efficiency LED Lighting Across 17 Municipal Facilities as Part of City’s Energy Saving’s Plan
STAMFORD, CT — (Marketwired) — 07/11/16 — Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVLT) (“Revolution Lighting”), a global provider of advanced LED lighting solutions, today announced that its division, TNT Energy, is installing a $4.3M turnkey LED retrofit Performance Contract with Siemens Industry Inc. Building Technologies Division for the City of New Bedford, Massachusetts.
As part of the City of New Bedford’s energy savings plan, the lighting retrofit installed LED lighting across 17 municipal and educational facilities. This includes the installation of more than 53,000 of Revolution Lighting’s LED tubes and Thin Panel fixtures at facilities including New Bedford’s elementary, middle and high school facilities, libraries, and municipal administrative buildings.
The replacement of existing fluorescent lighting with Revolution Lighting’s LED lamps and fixtures will reduce retrofit lighting energy usage by more than 50%, deliver increased light output, while providing a market leading 10 year warranty to reduce long term utility and maintenance costs. TNT Energy, subcontracted under Siemens, assisted New Bedford with project development, providing comprehensive turn-key lighting retrofit services including scope development, budgeting, measurement and verification, reporting and project management.
“We are excited to once again partner with Siemens Industries Performance Contract Division on another municipal project,” said Ted Carmone, Co-Founder of TNT Energy, a division of Revolution Lighting. “The continued selection of our company by Siemens is a testament to our capabilities to deliver leading comprehensive turnkey services for our customers.”

LaPenta, CEO and Chairman, Revolution Lighting. “Our extensive market experience in lighting and energy management solutions allows us to continue to provide leading services to our customers, partnering to maximize project benefits including energy savings, environmental and individual well-being.”
Acquired by Revolution Lighting in May 2016, TNT Energy has a long history with Siemens Industry of end-to-end management of municipal lighting projects, including past work with the City of Springfield, Mass.; Town of Dedham, Mass; and Concord, N.H. This success aligns with Revolution Lighting’s efforts to continue its penetration within the municipal lighting market, including more than $900,000 worth of completed projects earlier this year throughout California, Washington, Wisconsin, and Virginia. Revolution Lighting also recently launched its newest generation of lighting control technologies for municipal lighting systems, enabling municipalities to automate its energy efficiency initiatives.
