CSP's Role in the US Energy Mix – New guide released by CSP Today

Researchers at CSP Today have completed work on a guide focused on CSP's current and potential future role in the US Energy Mix.

Hours of research has resulted in the general release of this resource, which provides data, information and interviews on how CSP and its storage technology can benefit the US energy mix, and also help utilities and grid operators overcome PV and wind intermittency.

Furthermore, this guide will provide an introduction to the current thermal energy storage technologies commercially operating in plants, and examines the opportunity to reduce costs for years to come.
In a recent interview Jack Ahearne, the lead researcher at CSP Today, said that "there are a number of compelling reasons why it makes sense for the US to pursue leadership in the development of CSP". Adding that "the new CSP Today guide puts these reasons into context by highlighting the unique benefits that CSP can offer the US energy market for years to come".
The guide is free to download, and can be found here:

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.
