Solarpraxis To Host Fourth PV Power Plants Conference In Phoenix, Arizona this Week

The large-scale power plants conference will kick-off with a networking golf tournament followed by a welcome speech from Mayor Greg Stanton and a newly-announced keynote speech from Tracey LeBeau of DOE.

BERLIN--Solarpraxis AG, one of the leading organizers of conferences in the renewable energy sector, will host its fourth PV Power Plants conference focusing exclusively on large-scale solar power plants on November 28 & 29 at the Sheraton Downtown Phoenix Hotel. The conference program boasts key industry speakers, including Tracey LeBeau of the U.S. Department of Energy who will share insights about emerging markets and opportunities, as well as updates about clean energy development in the U.S. Dr. Mahesh Morjaria of First Solar will be part of a panel discussion around Markets and Developments with Maura Yates (Sunedison), Craig Lewis (Clean Coalition), Rudy Wodrich (Schneider Electric) and Wade Shafer (HIS). This year a new topic, concerning best practice reports about Community-Owned Solar Power, will be presented by Kent James of Martifer Solar.


Overall, the conference will provide project developers and decision makers with essential technical and financial information on the following topics: smart grid, LCOE, utility-interactive control, BOS, quality assessment, bankability, plant operation, energy storage, data management, inverters, project restructuring and community solar. With the rapid development of the PV industry, it is imperative that developers obtain and implement high quality and bankable products in order to remain at the forefront of the market. The same importance applies to system costs and technology, which must maintain high quality materials and long-term durability.

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.
