Carmanah’s Go Power! Group Starts 2013 With A Strong Canadian Booking Program Performance, Worth $875,000 CAD

Carmanah Technologies (TSX:CMH) announced the successful results of the annual Canadian Booking Program from the company’s proprietary Go Power! brand. The popular sales campaign, now in its eleventh year, reported sales of more than $875,000 CAD of the Go Power! product line for the RV market. This represents a 23% performance increase from the 2012 program.

Carmanah’s Go Power! group produces and distributes solar charging kits and power inverters for the Canadian RV market and continues to show strong year-on-year growth in 2013. In 2012, the company turned in a record setting $711,000 CAD of orders by their Canadian dealer network through the Booking Program. The recreational vehicle network grew again in 2013 and pre-orders increased by 23%. Much of the program’s success is attributed to the release of new solar products, including the largest single 12 volt solar kit currently available on the market, and two folding Portable Solar Kits, recently featured on Vancouver’s Breakfast TV.

“Our team provides dealers and consumers with relevant solar and inverter systems at competitive prices. The demand for our products continues to grow, and this translates into excellent sales and service opportunities for our dealers,” explains Bruce Cousins, Carmanah CEO.

The new solar product line will be available for both the Canadian and American RV market in time for the spring/summer buying season. For more information, please contact Mike Stephens, Managing Director of Carmanah’s Go Power! group, at  mstephens@carmanah.com, or visit Carmanah’s Go Power! team at the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association Learning Weekend on May 24 th.
