Energy-Saving Streetlight System First of its Kind in
Canada

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 6, 2005) - Streetlight
Intelligence Inc. (TSX Venture:SLQ) ("STI") announces that the City of
Prince George is testing light-sensing controls in 170 streetlights as
part of the first remote streetlight management system in Canada. The
project will allow Prince George to reduce its energy use and costs by
approximately 40% by reducing overlighting during off-peak hours when
there is little vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

The Lumen IQ™ technology behind the system was developed by
Victoria-based STI. The project is partially funded by a contribution
from B.C. Hydro's Power Smart Program, which provides incentives to
promote new energy saving technologies.

"Our technology allows communities to intelligently manage their
streetlight systems," said Don Cleland, STI's President. "The result is
significant energy savings, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and
light pollution, and substantial cost savings."

"Installation of Streetlight Intelligence's technology is another
example of how Prince George is leading the way with innovative energy
reduction initiatives without compromising public safety" says Prince
George Mayor Colin Kinsley. "Energy reduction makes sense, both
environmentally and financially. Through the ongoing support of BC
Hydro, the City is becoming even more Power Smart".

"We applaud Streetlight Intelligence's innovative energy solutions and
their goal to be a leader in energy reduction through technology," say's
BC Hydro's Energy Management Engineer, Roy Hughes. "Power Smart pilot
projects such as this demonstrate new technologies to our customers and
help BC Hydro meet growing energy demand in the province by acquiring
low-cost energy through conservation."

The project manager of the Prince George initiative is DMD & Associates
Ltd., an electrical engineering firm based in Surrey, British Columbia
and Seattle, Washington. DMD is a North American leader in roadway
lighting design and is currently writing the Guide for the Design of
Roadway Lighting for the Transportation Association of Canada. DMD will
prepare an engineering report that will detail the interim results of
the Prince George project in early 2005.

The Prince George project also includes exhaustive laboratory testing of
the Lumen IQ™. This testing is being conducted in the Scottsdale,
Arizona facilities of Lighting Sciences Inc., a global leader in
photometric testing. Lighting Science's founder, Dr. Ian Lewin, is a
world recognized expert in roadway lighting and is a past President and
Chairman of the Illumination Engineering Society of North American, a
body that sets standards for roadway lighting.

Other key participants or interested parties in the Prince George
project are the B.C. Ministry of Transportation; Parsons Brinckerhoff
Quade & Douglas, Inc., engineers, headquartered in Boston,
Massachusetts; and Caltech UPG Inc., a Calgary, Alberta consulting firm
providing efficiency consulting services to energy and utility companies.

BC Hydro and Power Authority is a provincial crown corporation, serving
more than 1.8 million customers across the province. More than 80 per
cent of BC Hydro's electricity is produced by hydroelectric generation
on the Columbia and Peace River systems. The home of the successful
demand-side management Power Smart program, BC Hydro is working toward a
sustainable future by providing integrated energy solutions in an
environmentally and socially responsible manner.

Streetlight Intelligence Inc. is a public company listed on the TSX
Venture Exchange (trading symbol: V.SLQ). STI designs, manufactures and
markets products for the streetlight industry. The company has the
global rights to a patented "anti-cycling" technology that reduces the

be remotely turned on/off or dimmed at specified times, which results in
significant energy savings, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and
light pollution and substantial cost savings.
