Nexxus Lighting illuminates interior of Capitol visitor center

Date Announced: 05 Dec 2007

Charlotte, NC - November 27, 2007 - Nexxus Lighting, Inc. (NASDAQ Capital Markets: NEXS) today announced that its SV Lighting business unit has sold over 600 linear feet of interior solid-state LED products for the new Capitol Visitor Center in Washington D.C.

The Capitol Visitor Center has been conceived as an extension of the Capitol building to welcome visitors to the seat of American government. At nearly 580,000 square feet, the CVC is the largest project in the Capitol's 212-year history and is approximately three quarters the size of the Capitol building itself.

When it opens, the Capital Visitor Center will provide a variety of amenities, including an exhibition gallery, orientation theaters, a 550-seat cafeteria, and gift shops all within a secure public environment.

SV Lighting's Savi® LED Flood Strips and low voltage power supplies are being used to light over 600 feet of cove and step lighting in the main exhibition gallery where significant Congressional documents will be displayed.

"The same LED flood strips were used by Georgia Tech in their solar house that was on the mall in Washington DC last October for the Department of Energy Solar Decathlon competition" stated Richard Heiner, Marketing Director for Nexxus Lighting.

"Greater energy efficiency, low heat output and high quality of light make this product an attractive choice for today's architects, lighting designers and engineers."

Nexxus Lighting is a leader in advanced lighting technology, including solid-state LED and fiber optic lighting systems and controls used in commercial, architectural, signage, swimming pool, entertainment and retail lighting. Nexxus Lighting sells its products through its SV Lighting, Advanced Lighting Systems and Nexxus Lighting Pool & Spas business units under the Savi®, eLumT, LiveLEDT, Super Vision® Fiber Optics and Advanced Lighting SystemsT Fiber Optics brand names.
