Press Release Source: Nexxus Lighting, Inc. On Tuesday February 9, 2010, 2:51 pm EST

CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nexxus Lighting, Inc. (NASDAQ Capital Market: NEXS) today announced that according to a review of all nine rounds of CALiPER test results conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy, its Array Par 30 has the highest efficacy (lumens per watt) of any directional LED replacement lamp tested.

These performance results have been validated further by more recent and comprehensive independent third party LM-79 photometric tests conducted by ITL in Boulder, Colorado. These tests show the 8 watt Array Par 30 Warm White lamp produced 527 lumens at 3000° Kelvin or 65.9 lumens per watt and the Array Par 30 Natural White lamp produced 545 lumens at 5000° Kelvin or 69.0 lumens per watt. These industry leading results are made possible through Nexxus Lighting’s patented design and patent pending Selective Heat Sink (SHS) technology which has resulted in the lightest weight and highest efficacy LED replacement lamp line in the industry. The Company has made copies of the DOE and ITL tests available on its website.

Nexxus Lighting is launching a national advertising campaign this month to promote its new Array Lighting product line in industry periodicals. This campaign will showcase the performance and the energy and money saving potential of the Array product line to the commercial lighting market.

“The results of the DOE CALiPER program, and other independent third party test data, demonstrate that we currently have the highest efficacy (lumens per watt), longest life, lightest weight LED replacement lamp in the market,” stated Mike Bauer, President and CEO of Nexxus Lighting, Inc. “In the coming weeks, we will be rolling out our global branding strategy through a national advertising campaign, major tradeshows and additional new product announcements. Our goal is to increase awareness of the advantages of Nexxus Lighting and position the Array Lighting brand of LED replacement lamps as the high quality performance leader in the market,” concluded Mr. Bauer.
