Axis Technologies Announces Multiple Installations of Company's Dimming/Daylight Harvesting Ballasts in New Jersey

Significant Carbon Reductions Realized From Energy Savings

LINCOLN, NE--(Marketwire - March 3, 2009) - Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AXTG), a green technology designer, manufacturer and marketer of a proprietary line of energy saving and daylight harvesting electronic dimming ballasts for the commercial lighting industry, announced that recent installations in several locations have has led to kilo watt hour (KWH) energy reductions and corresponding carbon dioxide reductions.

The Sprint Recycling ( plant in Newark, NJ operates a 24,000-square-foot facility with a 20,000 ton/month capacity for recycling paper products. Nearly 200 Axis ballasts were installed in new fixtures in this facility. Tricarico Architecture & Design (, a leading architecture firm in Wayne, NJ which utilizes the latest in state-of-the-art technology to create innovative designs and has completed over 10,000 high profile projects, has installed over 150 Axis ballasts in their facility. Axis ballasts have also been installed in a number of schools and military facilities. In just these three installation, the new fixtures are cumulatively saving approximately 60,000 KWH annually, which translates to nearly 103,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.

"Carbon reduction and energy efficiency are major goals of the US Department of Energy and the new administration," cited Nick Bussanich, East Coast Regional Manager for Axis Technologies. "Axis is well-positioned to provide these savings in both kilowatt-hour reduction and carbon savings to any company that uses fluorescent fixtures." He continued, "With the expected funding to the fifty states from the recent Economic Recovery Bill targeted for enhancing the energy efficiency of Federal, State and local government buildings, we expect to see more installation contracts from both the government and private sectors."

About the Axis Ballast:

A standard "ballast" is an electronic component that regulates voltage in light fixtures. Axis Technologies Group, Inc. has developed an innovative ballast with which expands daylight harvesting into mainstream lighting applications. The patented Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting Ballast is a new technology that transforms the standard ballast into a dynamic energy saving system that can reduce lighting energy costs by up to 70%. The Axis Ballast utilizes an individual photo sensor to automatically adjust the amount of electrical current flowing to the light fixture and then dims or increases lighting in conjunction with the amount of available sunlight. The Axis Ballast avoids "over-lit" conditions that increase energy costs by harvesting and utilizing free daylight from windows or skylights. As the amount of available daylight fluctuates, the Axis Ballast automatically keeps lighting "tuned" to the desired level in a designated area.
