SOLAR & WIND EXPO MID-ATLANTIC PRESENTS PANEL DISCUSSION ON ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLES

Third Annual Expo May 11-13, Timonium Fairgrounds, Maryland

The Third Annual Solar & Wind Expo Mid-Atlantic will begin with a fascinating look into the present and future of alternative fuel vehicles – from cars to bicycles – on opening day, Friday, May 11, at noon, with a keynote address by MotorWeek host John Davis.


MotorWeek was one of the first mainstream media outlets to provide regular coverage of advances in green motoring technologies and the use of alternative fuels. With uncertain fuel prices, MotorWeek continues to give viewers a front row seat as automakers seek to strike a balance between giving car buyers the performance they desire and the fuel economy they demand. It's said, "They don't build them like they used to," and that's never been more true than right now!

After his talk, Davis will be joined by a panel of experts to discuss all types of alternative fuel vehicles – from plug-in cars to electric bicycles.

As the Emmy® Award-winning host, executive producer and creator of MotorWeek, television's longest running automotive series, John Davis is seen by millions of viewers on PBS, Velocity and V-me Spanish-language network. One of the most trusted and recognized automotive journalists in the nation, Davis has been featured on CNN, Weekend Today, Live with Regis and Kelly, PARADE magazine and The Baltimore Sun, as well as local media throughout the country. He has also written regularly on automotive industry topics for The Washington Post and is a frequent radio guest on WBAL-AM and 98Rock in Baltimore.

More than three decades after its debut on public television in 1981, MotorWeek remains the leading source of unbiased information on automotive safety, fuel efficiency and in-depth car and truck reviews. Davis oversees all editorial content, and steers the series' increasingly high profile efforts in covering green motoring technologies and the use of alternative fuels.

In addition to information about alternative fuel vehicles, The Solar & wind Expo will bring consumers together with national and local companies that supply all types of renewable energy products and related businesses. The Solar & Wind Expo is the premier event for those who are looking to conserve energy and integrate renewable technologies such as solar, wind and geothermal energies, both for financial reasons and for reducing their carbon footprint.

A series of free consumer-oriented seminars will be offered at The Solar & Wind Expo in addition to professional introductory courses for those who want to enter this growing field.

The Solar & Wind Expo is the place to learn how to migrate and upgrade old systems to cleaner, more Earth friendly and renewable energy systems, thus helping to make green a reality.

The Solar & Wind Expo also has launched an interactive website chock full of information to help consumers make decisions about all forms of renewable energy: solarandwindliving.com.

Featured Product

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.
