NextGen Illumination Targets Cities for LED Retrofits

He said the idea is to extend NextGen’s reach beyond just cities. Also, the $20 million project ceiling means NextGen isn’t limited to any particular size of city. McCormick intends to expand his boundaries outside of just Arkansas and Oklahoma.

“This is not just supporting the municipalities of Arkansas but of local corporations,” McCormick said. “We can reach into Mississippi, Tennessee and other places where there are large, corporate entities with strict, limited budgets, who want to do upgrades but can’t get there.”

But he also said the move isn’t just part of NextGen’s business model; it also has to do with its philosophy.

“We believe in the adoption of energy efficiency first and foremost,” McCormick said. “That’s our goal. What comes with that is obviously higher sales and higher creation of our product domestically.”

Thrivability Summit

NextGen Illumination Inc. will present more information about its financial plan for municipalities at Thrivability, a summit for leadership in sustainable communities.

This summit will take place from Oct. 15 to 17 at the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel in North Little Rock.
Cost for the summit is $125; discounts are available for students and parties of three or more. The ticket price includes lunch, breaks, reception, keynote presentations, breakout sessions, city showcase and a networking reception.

NextGen will be presenting at “Show Me the Money: Financing Energy-Efficiency Projects,” a breakout session on the energy track.
