|Includes: ForceField Energy, Inc. (FNRG)

ForceField Energy announced today it has been awarded yet another contract for its energy-efficient LED lighting by an international buyer in Costa Rica. The contract is with the Comptroller General's Office of the Republic of Costa Rica for supply and installation of twenty-five 100W SL3 LED lights in the government agency's parking area. It was awarded through a competitive bidding process.

ForceField Energy's SL3 lights are CSA-certified, and they have also received certification from the Laboratory of Efficiency of Costa Rica, a division of the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (NYSE:ICE).

ForceField Energy also reported it is partnering with the University of Costa Rica for a study of the health benefits of LED lighting on university faculty and employees, as well on attending student academic performance. Project efforts for this have commenced, and include collaboration with and support from the Costa Rica Institute of Technology. Specifically, the study consists of ForceField Energy installing LED tubes and panels as replacements of existing fluorescent tubes in three of the campus' academic buildings.

The University of Costa Rica is investigating methods of greater energy efficiency, and LED lighting has emerged as an attractive solution. Reports indicate ForceField Energy's collaboration could lead to further installation of its products across the university's campus.

Notably, ForceField Energy has attained over $40 million in letters of intent for supply and/or installation of its products in Costa Rica alone.

Richard St-Julien, ForceField Energy's Chairman commented, "Both agreements demonstrate the competitive strengths of our products and our ability to provide the level of service and speed of execution required by premier clients. The Comptroller General of the Republic of Costa Rica and the University of Costa Rica are both highly regarded and respected for their focus on the quality of the products and services they procure and entities they choose as partners. We believe this further validates the excellence of our organization. Having already made significant inroads in Central America with more than $40 million dollars in letters of intent outstanding in Costa Rica alone, we remain confident that these new relationships will further accelerate our penetration into the region."

Mr. Alberto Murillo Herrera, UCR's Vice Dean commented, "In addition to reduced energy consumption and improved operating efficiency from LED lighting, we believe that there are inherent health and well-being benefits that are extremely valuable and merit further exploration within our academic setting. We chose ForceField Energy due to the strength of its products and its willingness to work closely with us on this campus-based study and its ability to further implement an efficient LED retrofit across the University."
