Gallup Solar Receives Capital Outlay Funding

GALLUP, N.M. - Gallup Solar, a community group dedicated to establishing a 40 MW solar power plant to serve the Gallup/McKinley County area in northwestern New Mexico, USA, received $45,000 in capital outlay funding, March 5, 2008 from the New Mexico Legislature. The group will complete a feasibility study and implementation plan for the site.
Gallup Solar's approach to leadership has grown the group from five women who just wanted to bring solar power to Gallup to a membership of 87. The intensity of its vision and members has attracted support from many different sectors of society. Driven by beliefs in sustainability and affordable renewable energy for all, the group continues to move forward in its vision to create a 40 MW solar power plant.

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.
