May 2010 ― Christopher Associates Inc. announces that a new professional association serving engineers and management in the photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing industries has been proposed. A formation meeting will be held on June 10, 2010 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Flextronics Corporation in Milpitas, CA.


Matthew Holzmann, president of Christopher Associates Inc., said, "The photovoltaic industry is moving fast. We are all pushing hard. There are few professional resources out there for the engineering and manufacturing community on an individual basis. We have tradeshows and some standards work being done, but engineering education, technology benchmarking and other professional issues and opportunities must be addressed as well. Hopefully we can begin a dialog to meet this need."

In order to facilitate the discussion, Flextronics Corporation has offered to host a formational meeting for such an organization. The meeting is open to all, and will be held at:
Flextronics Corporation
Building #1
Milpitas Conference Room
637 Gibraltar Court
Milpitas, CA 95035

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
