LSI Expands into Turnkey Solar Projects
CINCINNATI -- LSI Industries (NASDAQ: LYTS) announced today that it is expanding its offering of energy-efficient, eco-friendly technologies to include turnkey solar installations for petroleum fueling stations. The first project, at an Austin, Texas Speedy Stop, demonstrates LSI’s project capabilities that span from concept to installation. The Speedy Stop site features LG solar panels mounted on the fuel canopy and car wash that will generate more than 170,000 kWh of solar energy annually and reduce the site's energy consumption by 18%. The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022.
"In line with a host of energy-efficient solutions, we continue to expand into technologies that help our customers reduce their carbon footprint and operating expenses. This turnkey solar installation supports the continued development of LSI's Service Business model," said James A. Clark, President and CEO of LSI Industries. "Our vertical value proposition continues to resonate with new and existing customers who recognize the benefit of working with a proven U.S.-based manufacturer that focuses on their business. This project with Thomas Fuels’ Speedy Stop demonstrates our commitment to the clean energy market and is an example of LSI's dedication to green innovation."
The clean energy produced at the site allows Speedy Stop to minimize waste and reduce carbon emissions. As a longstanding leader in providing innovative lighting and graphics solutions to the retail petroleum market, LSI is proud to encourage the adoption of solar energy throughout the country and help its customers reap the benefits of low-cost energy.
