US Utility Purchases Over $500,000 of Inverters from Go Power! by Carmanah for Large Utility Fleet

The customized Go Power! inverter solution was chosen as the lighter and more compact contender with a competitively-driven price.

VICTORIA, British Columbia--Carmanah Technologies (TSX:CMH) announces that a major Utility in the United States is equipping its fleet of service and repair vehicles with the company's proprietary Go Power! brand inverters. Able to respond to a unique challenge the Utility was having in outfitting their existing fleets with pure sine wave inverters, Go Power! answered the call with a custom fit solution valued at over $500,000.


The customized Go Power! inverter solution was chosen as the lighter and more compact contender with a competitively-driven price. The system allows drivers to power tools or office equipment without the use of grid-power by drawing directly from the vehicle's battery bank. Go Power! has provided complete inverter power solutions for a variety of fleet, utility and work trucks across North America. Go Power! has also been featured in Canada's Go Tire mobile fleet, recently seen on CBC's reality show, Dragon's Den.

"The Go Power! team was instrumental in helping us design a power solution for our vehicles and they supplied a fantastic product. Their customized solution is a great fit for us" says a representative from the Utility fleet's upfitting provider, who is responsible for the installation.

Bruce Cousins, Carmanah CEO, comments, "With the strong market share position and proven performance of the Go Power brand, we are now able to leverage this brand equity into fleet sales. Such large orders represent an increasing percentage of our revenue base."

Carmanah's Go Power!™ team will be exhibiting their power inverter product line at the following national trade shows: The Work Truck Show, March 6 – 8, Booth 5764; Mid-America Trucking Show, March 21 - 23, Booth 65181 and NAFA Fleet Management Association's Institute and Expo, April 24 – 25, Booth 722.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
