The Israel's cabinet has approved a plan that aims to indentify simple and quick processes for construction of solar power installations.


The plan provide guidelines for building photovoltaic facilities in the country, with specific focus on roof-top installations that would avoid harm to open spaces, the environment and its scenic vistas.

The plan also allows for detailed plans for the construction of photo-voltaic units on areas of up to 75 hectares. It also allows for PV installations oon agricultural land in the Be'er Sheva district, near the Gaza Strip and on the Golan Heights.

The plan will be valid for five years from the date of its approval.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel is a technology-rich country, including in solar technology.

"And the paradox is that when we try to join our technology with the sun, we cannot make progress due to our bureaucracy. Today's decision simplifies this bureaucracy so that we will be able to enjoy our relative advantage, without harming the environment," Netanyahu said.

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.
