AutomatedBuildings.com Media Sponsor of GridWeek

AutomatedBuildings.com an online magazine and resource for the large building automation industry is pleased and proud to be a media sponsor of GridWeek, Washington DC, April 23-26.

We believe that this first ever event will be of great significance to our industry and will create new paths for future interoperability with the electrical grid.


GridWeek a four-day gathering of grid modernization leaders in Washington provides our large building automation industry a great opportunity to be part of and better understand how we fit in to the Modernizing the US Electric Grid.

Of particular interest to our industry is the "Demand Response National Town Meeting" which will deal with Demand Response, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy and the Environment - How are they intertwined. Our industry is an interactive part of all these issues and these discussions provide a tremendous opportunity for our industry's growth.

This quote was taken from an interview with Anto Budiardjo organizer of GridWeek

"Many of the solutions to the shortfall in electricity will come down to reducing demand especially at peak load times, and much of this will happen in buildings through building automation."

We very much agree and invite our industry to come out to GridWeek to learn more and be part of this evolving opportunity.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
