Go Power! Commercial Solar Charging Solution Nominated for Tech Industry Award

Victoria, BC, Canada (November 21st, 2022) Go Power!’s latest innovation for the commercial vehicle market has been listed as a finalist for this years’ VIATEC Innovation Excellence of the Year, in the Hardware Category.

Engineered by Go Power! engineers here on Vancouver Island, the technology in “The Phantom” solar charge controller brings a first-ever combination of solar power and traditional battery charging systems aimed to reduce idling and fuel costs to companies across North America.

“It’s the first of its kind. We engineered it specifically for charging both liftgate and pallet jack batteries to save time and reduce fuel costs by making deliveries more efficient,” remarks Sean O’Connor, Division Manager of the CPV market at Go Power!

“Dead batteries on liftgates and pallet jacks cost trucking companies time and money. The Phantom pairs the best-selling solar charging system with a dual in, dual out charging system that pairs alternators and renewable energy.”
