Streetlight Intelligence Teams with Qualite to Improve Sports Lighting Efficiency

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 5, 2006) -

STI's remote lamp technology offers energy and operational savings

Streetlight Intelligence Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SLQ) ("STI") today signed a memorandum of understanding with Qualite Sports Lighting, Inc. ("Qualite") to provide a collaborative solution that reduces energy costs for sports, recreational and athletic facility lighting. STI and Qualite have agreed to customize their respective products so that STI's Lumen IQ™ lighting control system complements Qualite's innovative sports lighting products. Qualite will offer the joint solution to new and existing Qualite customers.

The innovative Lumen IQ technology will allow Qualite's customers to remotely program their lighting systems so that the lights are dimmed or turned off when they are not required. Traditionally, these sporting facilities are fully lit even during non-sporting events, practices and half times. The ability to remotely control these lights reduces the amount of energy consumed by up to 40 percent, producing substantial savings to facility operators. In addition to energy savings, the Lumen IQ control system delivers significant operational savings and environmental benefits, including substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. There are an estimated 725,000 sports, recreational and athletic facilities in North America.

"Expanding our portfolio to include the STI technology provides our customers with a new way to reduce their energy consumption and costs," said Michael Egan, President of Qualite Sports Lighting. "The added benefit of being able to control light output to more accurately light the playing area as well as reducing unnecessary spill light and sky glow, is very compelling for our clients."

"We're proud to team with Qualite, a North America leader in advanced engineering and design techniques for sports lighting. Qualite's reflector efficiency and STI's controls will guarantee uniform light on the playing field while significantly reducing energy costs" said Don Cleland, president and CEO of STI. "The relationship with Qualite creates a new sales channel for STI, a channel we feel is naturally suited to our product."
