The meeco Group at Paraguay's EXPO 2011

Latest renewable energy and storage solutions at Mariano Roque Alonso

The largest exhibition in Paraguay, the Expoferia Internacional, took place in Mariano Roque Alonso (Paraguay) from July 9 to 24 and The meeco Group was among the few to integrate the "Visible Companies" exhibition hall.


This yearly exhibition which covers the latest trends in cattle breeding, industrial and distribution sectors as well as regional, national and local services, is unquestionably the business event of the year with visitors from Paraguay and all of South America. The 30th edition reached unprecedented heights with close to 700,000 visitors over the two-week period - the meeco booth positively felt this as it benefited from a front row position at the very entrance of the featured companies hall.

At the EXPO 2011, The meeco Group showcased the latest solar and energy storage technologies such as the already known sun2go portable power solutions, the sunGrid off-grid energy solutions and the all-in-one CellCube (Vanadium Redox based) energy storage solution for grid-buffering or remote power supply. "This year we definitely saw an increase in renewable energy believers among the visitors", indicates Dr. Oliver Jann, Director of meeco Amrica Latina. "We feel that although solar and other renewable energy sources are gaining ground at the national level, some people still do not fully embrace the need to think on long-term basis", adds Dr. Jann. "I have to admit there is a particularly great amount of interest for solar water pumping systems among renewable energy believers", concludes Dr. Jann.

The meeco Group's presence in Paraguay and Latin America is a strategic reality and actual projects are being finalized such as the soon to be inaugurated Riacho-i pilot project in Paraguay.

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.
