Carmanah Receives $1.6 Million Purchase Order for Solar-Powered LED Bus Stop Lighting in London, England


Victoria, British Columbia, Canada: Wednesday, July 19, 2006 - Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX:CMH) is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase order in the amount of $1.6 million from Trueform Engineering Ltd. of the United Kingdom for the supply of additional solar LED-illuminated bus stops. These units are scheduled for installation throughout the City of London, England, starting in early June 2006.

"Carmanah is pleased to continue to provide the solar lighting for London Buses' solar illuminated bus stop project," states Carmanah's CEO, Art Aylesworth. "Carmanah has been involved with this initiative since the early field trials in 2001, and we are proud to maintain our relationship with Trueform as a technology partner to London Buses."

The solar environment in London is very challenging and a good test of Carmanah's proprietary solar energy management systems. This order follows the September of 2005 order when Carmanah was selected for the provision of solar LED lighting and was awarded an initial rollout valued at $1.5 million.

"We are very pleased with the results of the installation of the initial 1000+ systems since September 2005, which were assembled and delivered 1000+ via our new facilities in Crawley, England," states Richard Sowter, VP of European Operations.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
