Streetlight Intelligence Inc.: Intelligent Streetlights Coming to Oakland, CA.

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 16, 2005) - Streetlight Intelligence Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SLQ) brings smart streetlights to Oakland. Scheduled to arrive in Fall 2005, 50 high intensity discharge street lights will operate by remote control via the Internet and allow street lights to be remotely turned on/off or dimmed at specified times. This innovative pilot project will evaluate both energy and maintenance savings for the City of Oakland and could result in reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, light pollution and substantial maintenance cost savings.

Streetlight Intelligence Inc. is a public company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange that designs, manufactures and markets products for the street light industry. The company has the global rights to a patented "anti-cycling" technology that reduces the maintenance costs of streetlights.

"Reducing our street light energy expenses and greenhouse gas emissions allows the City to create real energy cost savings while protecting the environment," said Jerry Brown, Mayor of the City of Oakland. "This project helps us make the most of a tight budget and makes Oakland a more sustainable City,"

"We have been searching for a technology since 2001 that will allow us to more proactively manage our street lights from both an energy consumption and a maintenance perspective," said Scott Wentworth, Energy Engineer for Oakland.

"The City of Oakland is a pioneer in addressing the problems and expenses associated with a traditional street light plant," said Don Cleland, President and CEO of Streetlight Intelligence Inc. "We are very excited to be working with such a proactive community that is focused on reducing the fiscal and environmental costs of street lighting."
