LAFAYETTE, Colorado – Next Generation Energy, LLC, introduces the SunBandit®

Water Heating System for preview at the Solar Power International 2012 conference. The SunBandit® is a revolutionary new approach to solar water heating that utilizes PV technology instead of solar thermal collectors providing an easier, more reliable, and cost-effective renewable energy solution.

The patent pending SunBandit® Water Heating System employs PV modules as the primary energy source to heat water, integrating electric, gas or oil as the secondary source. The NGE® controller maintains the desired water temperature by regulating the flow of energy. The economical price and simplicity of the SunBandit® over traditional solar thermal greatly expands the market for those interested in using the free energy of the sun to deliver hot water.

"The SunBandit® Water Heating System is a disruptive technological approach to water heating by utilizing PV technology to heat hot water simpler, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than conventional solar thermal systems," CEO Dave Kreutzman said. "With the release of the SunBandit® Water Heating System, everyone has access to trouble-free, practical, and affordable solar hot water."

Next Generation Energy® is a cutting-edge energy solutions provider. Through
optimized design, engineering and procurement, Colorado-based Next Generation Energy® leverages over three decades of industry experience to provide complete integrated renewable energy solutions.

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.
