EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio -- February 14, 2013

GE Lighting’s (NYSE: GE) Evolve™ LED Scalable Cobrahead fixture has earned a
Best-in-Class designation in the “Roadway Lighting” category in the 2012 Next
Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting Design Competition.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering
Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting
Designers, the NGL awards were created to recognize excellence in
energy-efficient LED commercial lighting unit design.

The Evolve™ LED Scalable Cobrahead fixture, a product of GE ecomagination℠,
was among just four products that received a Best-in-Class designation,
standing out significantly above other entries in its category. These winners
came from four different manufacturers and covered four categories of outdoor
lighting.

Also receiving formal 2012 NGL awards recognition were GE’s Evolve™ LED
Contemporary Conical Post Top, noted for its uniformity and glare control, and
the Evolve™ LED Modular Area Light, commended for its light distribution and
color quality.

GE Lighting products have captured three Best-in-Class distinctions and nine
award recognitions since the NGL competition began in 2008 (no competition was
held in 2011). In addition, Albeo Technologies Inc., acquired by GE Lighting
last fall, earned Best-in-Class in last year’s Indoor category for its
H-Series High Bay LED fixture. Albeo’s energy-efficient High Bay LED lighting
solutions also were recognized in 2008 and 2009.

“The goal here is to recognize products that are not only attractive, but that
are also energy efficient and deliver good lighting quality,” said DOE
Solid-State Lighting Program Manager Jim Brodrick. “It reminds me of football,
where the most effective quarterbacks aren’t just good passers — they can also
run well and see the whole field.”

The NGL awards promote superior design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for
commercial, industrial and institutional lighting applications. By encouraging
new designs and technologies, the annual competition aims to increase market
acceptance and awareness of LEDs for general illumination lighting.

Awards were presented Feb. 14 at Strategies in Light in Santa Clara, Calif.
