Making the Sunshine State a Little Brighter: GE Lighting Systems unveils LED StreetDreams™ at 2008 Annual Conference of Mayors

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C.  (NYSE: GE)  GE Lighting Systems, Inc., part of GE Appliances & Lighting, recently showcased its new LED StreetDreams™ post-top fixtures at the 76th Annual Conference of Mayors in Miami, Fla. From June 20-24, more than 250 mayors from cities all over the United States descended upon Miami, and GE offered them a sneak peek at one of its latest energy-efficient lighting solutions.

GE provided six of its LED StreetDreams™ luminaires for the event. The new lighting system was installed in the median along Pan American Drive leading up to Miami City Hall.

Municipal leaders are known to be major influencers in the specification and purchase of energy-efficient metropolitan lighting solutions. As downtown revitalization planning has become increasingly sensitive to environmental impacts, LED StreetDreams is expected to resonate well with mayors and other municipal authorities because of its energy-efficient LED technology and chic post-top design.

LED StreetDreams post-top fixtures will be introduced to the broader market in 2009.
