Energy Focus, Inc. Earns $1.8 Million LED Lighting Product Order from ESCOSOLON Ohio, April 3, 2012 – Energy Focus, Inc. (OTC BB: EFOI.OB), a leader in providing LED energy efficient lighting solutions, announced it has been awarded a $1.8 million order from a leading Energy Service Company (“ESCO”) for its energy saving LED lamps.

“Our LED products are gaining increasing interest and traction in the existing building markets.  I was delighted to announce on our recent conference call that we’ve received our first sizeable $1.8 million ‘product only’ order with a very large ESCO customer for our LED replacement lamp,” said Joe Kaveski, Energy Focus CEO.

“This order is expected to be 100% fulfilled this year,” continued Mr. Kaveski.  “This sale is very significant as it represents a real beginning of the ESCO markets transition to LED lamps.  We are now able to offer LED solutions that match or better the simple payback of traditional fluorescent lamps.  Furthermore, this $1.8 million order demonstrates the ESCO markets are an early adopter for LED lighting and confirms our view that ESCOs and SRC Solutions are key vehicles to drive large LED product sales.”
