Apricus Offers Solar Thermal Units To Flood-Affected Users

Apricus Australia offers help to Queensland residents affected by recent flooding.

Apricus Australia is offering $15 million (retail value) worth of replacement solar hot water units - 3,500 units - to Queensland, Australia, residential property owners affected by the country's recent floods, at little or no purchase cost.


If a property owner is determined to be eligible for solar rebates, he or she will be required to pay Queensland and federal government solar rebates - and renewable energy certificates (RECs) - to Apricus so that the company can cover its costs. Property owners not eligible for rebates will be able to buy a solar thermal unit for the equivalent of the rebates and renewable energy certificates.

Owners who have already claimed the federal government insulation rebate and are still eligible for the Queensland solar hot water rebate and RECs can also participate, the company adds. The cost of a solar hot water system will be equivalent to that of a replacement electric hot water 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.
