Host America's Energy Division Announces Wal-Mart Transaction Ten Store First-Phase For LightMasterPlus(R)

Jul 12, 2005, 01:00 ET from Host America Corporation

    HAMDEN, Conn., July 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Host America Corporation
 (Nasdaq:   CAFE) announced today that it will start surveying 10 Wal-Mart stores
 in the southwest, in preparation for installation of its LightMasterPlus(R) on
 the fluorescent lighting system of each store.  Details of the surveys will be
 released as they become available. The LightMasterPlus(R) has been tested
 since November, 2004, at Oklahoma Gas & Electric, in Oklahoma City, averaging
 22% energy savings when installed on T-8 & T-12 fluorescent lighting systems.
 Simultaneously, testing took place at one of the company's stores in Texas for
 over six months, which reported a 19% energy savings.  Recently, the US
 Department of Energy at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN,
 conducted extensive testing of the product for energy savings and the effect
 on ballasts, fixtures and tubes.  The results showed the product saved
 15%-30% on fluorescent lighting and that it reduced temperatures in the
 ballast.  This shows that it does not degrade the specific life expectancy of
 the ballast.
     "This is a major event for our company, which we have been working towards
 since last year.  We expect this prestigious customer will like the savings
 they receive from this first-phase roll-out and believe that the next phase
 will involve a significant number of stores," said Company CEO, Geoffrey
