The City of St. Jean sur Richelieu has chosen solar LED lighting technology

The City of St. Jean sur Richelieu has chosen solar LED lighting technology to promote energy conservation while producing exceptional light quality with low operating costs.

Montreal, November 2008 — Matrix Energy Inc, eastern Canada's largest supplier of energy efficiency and renewable energy products and systems, announces that it has designed and supplied an autonomous solar photovoltaic (PV) system to power LED Floodlights to the City of St. Jean sur Richelieu in the Province of Quebec.

Designed to perform for more than 50,000 hours, Matrix Energy's new generation LED Floodlights will provide the City's Welcome sign with ample light without generating light pollution or radiating excessive heat. Each LED Floodlight offers standard light output of 1700 lumens consuming only 12W of power!
LED Floodlights are the best option for cities looking for performance at a low cost because of their design, performance attributes and energy savings. The City of St. Jean sur Richelieu project is an example of how Municipalities are leading the way in the specification and purchase of energy-efficient lighting solutions. "I hope the example Welcome Sign in St. Jean sur Richelieu will get the ball rolling for all towns and applications to expand clean renewable energy", said Csaba Kiss of Solar Energy Kiss, Matrix Energy's installation partner on the project.
LED Lighting systems play a crucial role in the global fight to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and are a way amongst others to promote energy conservation at low cost. "The decision taken by our City to install a solar LED lighting system was in keeping with our agenda of sustainable development", said Pierre Lepitre of the City of St. Jean sur Richelieu.
Matrix Energy's LED Floodlights are available in 12 or 36 Watt at 12VDC with 60 or 100 degree beam spread available, and can be powered by Stand Alone solar PV and/or wind energy systems.

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.
