PowerSines LEC Saves 20% - 35% Electricity at Statoil Petrol Stations

The Lighting Energy Controller (LEC) system with dual operation mode provides energy savings for all lighting circuits: outdoor pump area, billboard signage and convenience store.

Riga, Latvia, March 23, 2010 --(PR.com)-- PowerSines Ltd, a global provider of energy efficiency solutions for lighting and industry applications started deployment of Lighting Energy Controllers (LEC) in Statoil Petrol Stations.

Statoil is the 2nd largest gas supplier in Europe and the 6th biggest in the world. Headquartered in Norway, Statoil has representation in over 40 countries worldwide and in Scandinavia alone Statoil operates over 2000 stations. As part of the global strategy to reduce their CO2 footprint, Statoil is petrol stations are going green.

PowerSines technology enables dynamic voltage regulation and power consumption optimization for lighting circuits. LEC systems are equipped with built-in astronomic clock, programming tools for defining lighting scenarios and activation of lights according to different time schedules. Power consumption optimization and intelligent operation and adjustment of lights enable customers to save between 20% - 35% of electricity in lighting with PowerSines LEC systems.

PowerSines technology was first deployed at Statoil petrol stations in Latvia. For each petrol station one LEC unit controlled the lighting for the entire facility. LEC provides continuous savings of 20%-25% at convenience stores, which are typically operating 24/7. The dual operation and automatically switches canopy lights on and off using the built-in astronomic clock which generates an additional 7%-10% savings on electricity during nighttime operation hour and assures electricity is not wasted during daylight hours.

The system installs easily at the electric panel and works with any existing infrastructure, without requiring any reconstructions or changes. Together with the above benefits, LEC provides stabilization of voltage to the station, resulting in extended lamp lifetime and a reduction of maintenance costs.
