Xantrex Energy Club sets new standards for solar dealer programs

Xantrex Technology Inc. (TSX:XTX) is launching a new loyalty program for renewable energy dealers. The Xantrex Energy Club will provide dealers with benefits to help increase their sales of Xantrex products.

VANCOUVER, BC, October 31, 2005 - Xantrex Technology Inc. (TSX:XTX) is launching a new loyalty program for renewable energy dealers to provide them with benefits to help increase their sales of Xantrex products. The Xantrex Energy Club offers advantages based on the volume of Xantrex products that dealers purchase and rewards those who sell more. The program provides product knowledge, training, and special warranty service benefits.


"There's no other dealer program in the market like the Energy Club," says Audey Korpus, Xantrex marketing manager, renewable energy. "The Xantrex Energy Club was designed with the help of the dealers who will benefit from it. This approach has ensured the development of a program that really meets the dealers' needs, and makes Xantrex the manufacturer of choice."

Xantrex was the first manufacturer to develop a dealer program for the renewable market when it launched the Xantrex Certified Dealer program more than five years ago. The success of that program prompted Xantrex to create the Energy Club. The Energy Club will replace the Certified Dealer program, and will continue to support the dealer network. To learn more about the Energy Club, visit www.xantrex.com/energyclub or email redealermarketing@xantrex.com to register for the November 2, 2005 webinar.
