solarmax LED lightingSolarMax LED, through its wholly owned subsidiary ActOne Communications, has signed a $4 million-plus contract with California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to replace more than 29,000 aging street lights with energy-efficient LED luminaires.

SolarMax was selected from among the nine pre-qualified bidders which included bigger names like GE Lighting and Philips.

Initial work will focus on public roadways and arterials across Sacramento County.

ActOne, which specialized in signage and outdoor lighting systems for government and commercial markets in North and Latin America, was acquired by SolarMax Technology in 2013.

“The caliber of companies competing for this opportunity speaks volumes about its significance to advancing energy conservation,” said SolarMax Technology executive vice-president Ching Liu. “Caltrans specs represent the gold standard in terms of lighting for public roadways.”

“We are both grateful and humble to have been chosen to partner with the agency in their ongoing efforts to create a more energy efficient California,” Liu added.
