ICP Solar Opens California Sales Office



    New Sales Office to Accelerate Company's Innovative Entries into Consumer
and Residential Markets

    MONTREAL, October 1 /CNW/ - ICP Solar Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: ICPR,
FRANKFURT: K1U.F), a developer, manufacturer and marketer of solar cells and
products, today opened a sales office in Aliso Viejo, California.

    This new office will serve as a hub for all of ICP Solar's operations in
California, enabling the company to accelerate its growth, strengthen its
relationships with customers and add new customers, and forge distributor
agreements for its Sunsei amorphous Thin-File Solar Tile and Wireless Sunsei
Greenmeter(TM) products launched last week at the 4th Annual Solar Power
Conference and Expo.

    "To enhance the solar consumer experience, it makes sense to be in close
proximity to our West Coast-based customers and partners such as West Marine
or Frys," said Laurent Lafite, vice president, Marketing & Global Strategy.
"Our new sales office will be managed by Tom Clark, our vice president of
sales in North America, who brings 20 years experience in the consumer goods
industry to this exciting initiative. Under Tom's leadership, we look forward
to continued double digit growth in our "Solar to Go" Coleman line and our
lifestyle Sunsei(R) mobile chargers. As always, we want our products to make
those solar lifestyle moments simple, measurable and enjoyable."

    Added Tom Clark, vice president sales, North America, "We're thrilled to
be opening an ICP Solar office in the rapidly growing California market to
propel sales of our mobile solar chargers. Our products, designed for outdoor
enthusiasts, provide green power backup or primary power for vehicles such as
automobiles, boats, RVs with the highest level of quality and reliability in
the market."

    "With a nucleus of operations in California, ICP Solar is now perfectly
situated to accelerate partnerships with key West Coast distributors in the
burgeoning residential and power generation markets in California. We're just
at the beginning of a sharp growth trajectory for ICP Solar," said Sass
Peress, ICP chairman and chief executive officer.
