US Utility Installs Carmanah Inverters in 600 Electric Vehicles

Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) is pleased to announce two sales orders with a combined value of approximately $171,000 for Go Power! Pure Sine Wave Inverters, a proprietary mobile power product within the Carmanah portfolio. The inverters are being deployed in over 600 fleet vehicles operated by a major US utility provider undergoing a fleet revitalization project.

The South East based utility provider will use the Go Power! Pure Sine Wave Inverters to operate tools and test equipment requiring 120 volts of AC power by way of the vehicle’s battery, as well as being used to charge hand held devices, such as cell phones. The 1000 watt Go Power! Pure Sine Wave Inverter provides an efficient replica of AC power for the category of tools and equipment the fleet will be using. Some of these devices are sensitive to power loads and require a clean source of AC power. Aside from the accessibility of having on-board AC power readily available at the job site, the vehicles will also be simultaneously reducing their daily idle time and carbon footprint.

Ted Lattimore, Carmanah CEO, said, “This contract represents one of many large-scale fleet outfitting projects. Fleet managers are confident that our Go Power! products will deliver mobile power when it is required thanks to the devices’ continued track record of extreme reliability and performance.”

The utility provider expects to outfit their new fleet this summer. A combination of Transit Connect and utility vans will then be deployed across 17 states throughout the US.
