LAS VEGAS, NV, Dec. 6, 2007 -- National Automation Services Inc., and Intecon Controls Inc., located in Tempe, Arizona, which is being acquired by NASV this month, are pleased to announce the contract for Johnson Utilities Water Company in Queen Creek, Arizona.

Intecon will design and implement a state-of-the-art control system located at Johnson Ranch's operations centre, including fifteen Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) panels at well and tank sites, over a high speed (50 megabit) 2.4 GHz Radios, Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) and PLC Programming. Phase 1 of this contract is valued at $490,000, which will save the customer $270,000 by not using a conventional architectural & engineering firm. Phase 2 will focus on Johnson Utilities Wastewater Company, where Intecon will implement fifteen Remote Terminal Units and radios at mission critical sewage lift stations throughout the Phoenix area. These stations will tie into the existing SCADA system. Phase 2 is valued at $400,000.00. Future phases in the planning stages are for 92 more sites on both the water storage and pumping sites as well as wastewater lift stations and plants. Gross Margins on the first two phases of this project are estimated to be 30%

In addition, ISS, a subsidiary of NASV, has been awarded a contract for the Las Vegas Timeshare by Tharldson Development for $142,000.00 to design and install its building automation and controls system for this multi-story building being constructed on the Las Vegas Strip. ISS will develop the energy management control system designed to control the heating and air conditioning and lighting controls for the building making it compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency Green Building Program. ISS estimates gross margins on this project to be 35%

Robert Chance, CEO of National Automation Services Inc. in commenting on these contracts, stated: "We are very excited about the addition of Intecon Controls to our network that is being assembled throughout the U.S. This recent contract for Johnson Utilities fits in with our overall plan of targeting water and wastewater projects throughout the country, and is a very important part of our overall business and expansion plan. The second contract announced for ISS to automate this new development on the Strip in Las Vegas is also very important to our business strategy as the EPA has implemented a Green Building Program for new and existing buildings over 10,000 square feet in size. By installing this Energy Management Control System, the owner will use much less energy usually averaging between 20-30% in annual energy cost savings, thus helping the bottom line of the owner while saving the environment. We expect to receive several more contracts of this nature in the greater Las Vegas area as more structures are built that must comply with the new EPA guidelines. As with the waste water projects, we consider our ability to service 'green projects' to be not only a growth area for ISS and Intecon, but also an expertise that we can take nationwide throughout our pending acquisitions."

National Automation Services Inc. is a public holding company for specialized automation control companies located in the Southwestern United States. The Company presently owns 100% of the stock in Intuitive System Solutions Inc. ("ISS") of Las Vegas, Nevada.
