Carmanah Supplies Mobile Power for Fleet Vehicles in British Columbia and Alberta

Monday, August 28, 2006

Carmanah's Solar Power Systems Group has recently supplied 50 of its Go Power!™ mobile power systems to a leading truck-mounted equipment supplier with operations in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. These systems will be installed in fleet vehicles operating throughout both provinces to power laptop computers, communications equipment, as well as electric power tools.

Each mobile power system includes Carmanah's proprietary Go Power!™ pure sine wave 12-volt inverter (Model GPSW-1500) as well as two of its Extreme™ batteries - durable, maintenance-free absorbed glass mat batteries (Model EX-1000 AGM) which combines cycling ability with sealed, spill-proof construction.

Carmanah's Go Power!™ pure sine wave inverters perfectly replicate AC power, so any appliance within the wattage rating will operate just as if it was plugged into house power. The combination of the Company's Go Power!™ pure sine wave inverters and its Extreme batteries has been field-proven as a "bulletproof" mobile power solution in installations throughout North America.
