Titan Energy Systems Receives Purchase Order for Emergency Generator System From Madonna Towers, an Assisted Living Facility

MINNETONKA, MN--(Marketwire - January 31, 2008) - Titan Energy Worldwide, Inc. (OTCBB: TEWI) announced today that its subsidiary, Titan Energy Systems, has been awarded a contract to supply one 600kW emergency engine generator system to Madonna Towers, an assisted living facility in Rochester, Minnesota. Manufactured by Generac Power Systems of Waukesha, Wisconsin, the backup system is designed to provide emergency power to the entire building. The engine generator will be installed outdoors in a sound attenuated enclosure with a built in double walled diesel fuel tank.

The emergency power system also includes a service entrance rated GE Zenith closed transition automatic transfer switch rated at 4000 amps. The enclosure, breaker and transfer switch will be assembled at Electrical Mechanical Inc, (EMI) a specialty switchgear and enclosure manufacturer located in Minneapolis, MN. The closed transition transfer switch is a premium product that eliminates any interruption of power when transferring between two live sources.

Tom Vagts, COO of Titan, stated, "The closed transition transfer switch is the right product for the health care industry. Not having to worry about a power interruption when transferring back to the local utility is extremely beneficial for critical healthcare type applications."

Madonna Towers will participate in the local utilities load curtailment program. Under this program, Rochester Public Utility will have the ability to turn the engine generator on during peak load scenarios. Resulting savings from this program will help offset the capital cost of the emergency power system.
