Carmanah's Go Power! Group Starts 2013 with a Strong Canadian Booking Program
Performance, Worth $875,000 CAD 
Victoria, British Columbia CANADA, March 21, 2013 /FSC/ - Carmanah Technologies
Corporation (CMH - TSX), 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
(http://gpelectric.com/products/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,
