Prospects for Solar in Mexico continue to prosper

Government and industry to unite in Mexico City in May to discuss how to drive forward the solar market.

"Most of the world future energy scenarios recently published show excellent prospects for the development of grid-connected solar power in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Mexico and Chile show the best solar project prospects due to their exceptional solar energy resources that shall drive several of the first large scale solar projects in LAC in the next 5-10 years" Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho, Inter-American Development Bank

Mr Carvalho was speaking ahead of the Solar Power Mexico conference being held in Mexico City this May. In an interview with Green Power Conferences, Mr Carvalho discussed the high potential of solar to become a leading source of renewable energy in the region (read the full interview here).

Featured Product



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.
