High-efficiency kit offers big power, requires little space

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA (March 02, 2009) - Carmanah Technologies has introduced a new benchmark in compact and efficient solar-charging technology: the Go Power!™ GP-RV-95 solar-charging kit. Convenient and reliable, the GP-RV-95 kit provides 95 watts (5.5 amps) of electricity from a compact solar module, making it ideal for recreational vehicles, boats, or other mobile applications where 12-volt power is required.

Measuring just 104 cm x 53 cm (41"x 21"), the kit's high-efficiency monocrystalline solar panel generates more power per square inch, making Carmanah's GP-RV-95 the company's most efficient solar-charging kit to date. Designed to monitor and charge mobile batteries throughout the day, Carmanah's solar-charging kits provide boaters and RVers with the freedom to run lights, water pumps, refrigerators and other 12-volt loads wherever they're needed, conveniently and reliably. Each kit includes a solar panel, 25-amp digital solar regulator, and all the mounting hardware required for a quick and easy install. Reliability is ensured by a 25-year warranty
