LAKE ELSINORE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 15, 2013) -  IDS Solar Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: IDST) announced it is providing access to solar portable power for regions lacking reliable access to the nation's power grid by signing new dealer partners in Hawaii, Alaska, and Arizona to its national network.

These new dealerships represent the Company's further advancement toward its goal of providing nationwide access to reliable portable power through the establishment of a dealer network serving all fifty states. This comes on the heels of the announcement earlier this month of dealerships in the key states of New York, New Jersey, California, Texas and Nevada. Establishment of these new dealerships provides access to clean portable power for individuals, families and businesses in these regions with known limited access to the grid. Industrial users in fields such as resource exploration and remote construction in these states will finally gain access to reliable electric portable power with advanced storage and efficient battery management. The Company reported it continues to be impressed with the commitment and motivation of its dealers to growing their businesses through the expansion of regional use of clean portable power.

The Company also reported it opened up the key region that transcends the Atlantic and Caribbean Oceans, otherwise known as Hurricane Alley, by adding dealers in Bermuda, Barbados, and Jamaica. More information will be provided on this new international expansion in the near future.

The Solar Survivor is competitively priced at $999.00 retail. Inquiries into becoming a regional dealership may be made through the Company's product site at and at 1-855-SUN-ELEC (786-3532).
