The ISEA is offering a 32-hour Photovoltaic Design & Installation (PV301) workshop at LEED Council in Chicago on 4 consecutive Saturdays beginning June 4th.


PV301 offers participants an advanced level of hands-on and lecture to prepare them for field installations and other advanced workshops. PV301 is for individuals interested in getting hands-on experience sizing, designing, and installing a residential sized photovoltaic system.

Participants will revisit how to correctly design, size and select PV system components and identify and interpret National Electric Code (NEC) articles that pertain to the installations. While working on a training roof, participants will learn safety procedures, system design and layout, component selection and specification, electrical and mechanical integration techniques, and troubleshooting that take place on real job sites.

Participants are required to have attended a PV101 and PV201 class, or comparable classes.

    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.
