ACORE Statement On Recently Released NREL Study

The American people want renewable energy, in fact, as much as our industries can produce. It's a great day to be in renewable energy. Our day has come.

Washington, DC, October 23 -- The following statement was issued today by the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) about the just-released report on the supply and demand for renewable energy in the United States by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado:

"The study is yet another confirmation that the demand for renewable energy is growing rapidly and like any market there may be temporary imbalances in the industries' abilities to respond to a specific technology," said Mike Eckhart, ACORE President.

Eckhart continued: "For some 30 years, while the technologies were in development, detractors complained that the American people would not buy renewable energy. Now, demand is outstripping supply. Our detractors have been proven wrong. The American people want renewable energy, in fact, as much as our industries can produce. It's a great day to be in renewable energy. Our day has come."

ACORE submits that consumers and businesses can be assured that whether it's wind, solar, biofuels, wave/current, geothermal and other renewable sources of energy that all of these industries are moving quickly and to meet demand. And they can look forward to the positive impacts renewable energy is beginning to have on our climate, environment, local and regional economies, and the nation's energy security.

ACORE, a 501(c)(3) membership nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to bringing renewable energy into the mainstream of the US economy and lifestyle through information and communications programs. ACORE provides a common platform for the wide range of interests in the renewable energy community including renewable energy industries, associations, utilities, end users, professional service firms, financial institutions and government agencies. ACORE serves as a forum through which these parties work together on common interests. Membership information is available at:

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.
