Revolution Lighting Technologies Selected by Raley's for Enhanced Energy Savings

California Based Grocery Chain Installs $300,000 Worth of LED Tubes Across Seven Retail Locations

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - November 02, 2015) - Revolution Lighting Technologies (NASDAQ: RVLT), a leader in advanced LED lighting technology solutions, today announced it was selected by Raley's, a California-based, family-owned grocery chain, to install its G3 LED tube technology within seven retail locations.

The deal has already resulted in more than $300,000 worth of tubes installed from Revolution Lighting Technologies, with an additional opportunity existing for RVLT to provide its LED tubes for another 20+ stores in 2016, worth an estimated additional $800,000 for a total project cost of $1.1 million.

The project with Raley's comes just a few months after Revolution Lighting Technologies received a food and safety certification for all of its plastic G3 LED tube lamps from NSF International for installation in food processing areas. This key certification ensures that Revolution Lighting Technologies and its technology meets the highest standards in food safety, passing stringent testing from both the FDA and USDA, while allowing the company to further expand its business into new markets like food storage and preparation areas within all grocery stores, restaurants and food processing/storage centers.

"Revolution Lighting Technologies is proud to be selected by Raley's, installing our market leading G3 LED tubes to provide its customers with a unique shopping experience through LED's superior light quality versus other lighting technologies," said Robert V. LaPenta, CEO and Chairman of Revolution Lighting Technologies. "Achieving the NSF food safety certification for our LED tubes allowed RVLT to provide a comprehensive lighting retrofit solution for Raley's, including a glass and mercury free lighting solution within food preparation and storage areas in addition to general store lighting."

Lighting makes up 18% of U.S. supermarket and grocery store energy use. With approximately 40,000 stores nationwide, totaling 1.6 billion sq. ft., LED lighting could have a significant impact, reducing the approximately $4 per sq. ft. spent on energy use to save grocers $691 million annually. This represents an enormous market opportunity for Revolution Lighting Technologies and its NSF certified G3 LED tubes.

Raley's Family of Fine Stores has more than 126 locations in Northern California and Nevada, and has always made a concerted effort to be more sustainable and energy efficient than its counterparts. This project with Revolution Lighting Technologies will focus on not only energy savings and food safety, but also general aesthetics and remodeling to present merchandise in the most optimal way possible. Raley's can expect a more than 50% return on investment based on energy savings, maintenance deferral, utility rebates and other key factors.

"We are thrilled to be working with Revolution Lighting Technologies, expanding our commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency, reducing lighting energy use within our stores by 60%," said Randy Walthers, manager, energy/utilities, Raley's. "RVLT's recent achievement of the NSF International food safety certification for its LED tubes provided a singular, high quality, LED lighting option for both general retail and food preparation/storage areas. In addition to being glass and mercury free, RVLT's LED tubes will help Raley's continue to offer the best shopping experience to our customers, and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership."
