New book about off-grid living from Doubleday

A tour around the UK in an RV, meeting people who live off-grid in boats. RVs, caravans, benders, yurts and even large brick mansions

There are 75,000 living off-grid in the UK all year round, but that number swells to 300,000 in the summer.


This book analyzes what the rest of us can learn from this lifestyle at a time of rising oil prices, house prices and when the chance of the grid shutting down has never been greater.

Extracts are available on the off-grid web site.

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.
