TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2009 - Dave Egles - founder and president of Home Energy Solutions (HES) - brings his expertise to the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) Conference to reveal how Ontario residents can generate money by investing in the environment. Egles - former CanSIA president - will explain how a one-time investment in solar electric technology can generate income for the next 20 years under Ontario's Green Energy Act micro feed-in-tariff.* Following the conference, Egles will host a comprehensive one-day workshop with some of Canada's top solar authorities.


Two opportunities to learn more about solar:
1. Canadian Solar Industries Association Conference (www.cansia.ca)
Monday, December 7 and Tuesday, December 8 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, Toronto - Regatta Room, Booth 405

2. MicroFIT Solar Training Workshop (www.heshomeenergy.com/blog/?p=367)
Wednesday, December 9 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, Toronto

A training event offering comprehensive industry information on the solar electric industry and the feed-in tariff opportunity.

*Under Ontario's Green Energy Act micro feed-in-tariff, homeowners installing up to 10-kilowatt solar systems are eligible to receive $0.80 for each kilowatt of excess energy their systems deliver for the next 20 years. A micro-scale home system costs between $20,000 and $100,000; on a south-facing roof, it could generate income of up to $10,000 each year. "An investment in solar has a strong financial yield while being a green, ethical investment," says Egles. "Homeowners can quite easily recoup their initial cost - and then continue to reap all the benefits of an environment-friendly energy system."

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.
