Sunovia Energy Technologies Inc. Acquires Exclusive Rights to LED Lighting Patents

    SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 4 /EMWPresswire/ -- Sunovia Energy

Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SUNV), a renewable energy and

energy conservation company, announced today that it has acquired the

exclusive rights to patents that allow it to expand its existing product

offering into the extended-life and security LED lighting markets.



    The patents acquired, which include a critical electromechanical

patent, enable Sunovia's EvoLucia(TM) LED lighting fixtures to

differentiate between a power failure and the power being turned-off at the

switch. This proprietary feature allows Sunovia the ability to market LED

lighting products that remain illuminated during power outages. This system

integration is especially important in countries that experience frequent

blackouts and also to domestic customers that are concerned with weather

events. Currently, the availability of products with this important feature

is limited to a hardwire fixture that must be wired into the electrical

outlet. The acquisition of these patents allows Sunovia the unique ability

to deliver a wireless product to the market that can be safely and simply

installed by anyone that can use a screw driver. In addition, the wireless

aspect of the product allows Sunovia the ability to deliver a product to

the retro-fit market rather than be confined to new construction.



    Carl Smith, Sunovia's CEO and Chairman of the Board, stated, "The

acquisition, development and integration of proprietary technologies within

the burgeoning energy conservation markets is the primary focus of our

business plan; and our continued ability to deliver practical and energy-

efficient solutions to the global lighting markets will further solidify

our position as a rising player within this immense market."
