Multi-Million Dollar Energy-Saving LED Billboard Lighting Initiative

Ultravision International, a leading innovator, manufacturer and distributor of LED displays and LED lighting, partnered with Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA) (NYSE: CCO) on an LED installation project that drove significant operating savings.

The project included revamping 11,000 display panels in 10 major U.S. cities with LED lights that cut energy consumption by more than 60 percent. More than a dozen Utility companies provided rebates for the project, as LED retrofits are a major step toward reducing energy demand for the grid, cutting costs, and curbing negative impacts on the environment.

Clear Channel Outdoor Americas revamped billboards with state-of-the-art LED lights that have a lifespan of 10 years (4 times longer than the bulbs they replace). CCOA advertisers will benefit from the longevity and reliability of the LED lights designed with patented technology delivering an evenly lit display even if individual LED strips fail. Like all Ultravision products, the 120 watt and 150 watt LED lights used for the retrofitting project are Made in America by workers in the North Texas area where Ultravision is headquartered.

William Hall, CEO and co-founder of Ultravision International told us “Our partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor Americas reflects a shared vision of providing advertisers with unparalleled opportunities to be creative and connect with consumers, while also driving the outdoor display industry towards more energy-efficient and cost-effective solutions. We are excited to collaborate with them on this project and look forward to seeing how advertisers take advantage of the revamped billboards.”
