The following webinars are scheduled from April to September 2013.

April 10 at 11 a.m. PDT
How to Size Battery Banks for Off-Grid Applications This webinar will focus
on sizing batteries for off-grid applications. The basics of battery
capacity will be discussed including how it is defined, what affects it and
what other de-rating factors need to be considered when determining battery
capacity. Calculation of both DC and AC loads will be addressed and the role
inverter power factor and inverter efficiency play in the calculation of
battery amp-hour capacity.

May 15 at 8 a.m. PDT
Maintaining Deep-Cycle Batteries in the Field The webinar will review
deep-cycle battery care and maintenance, emphasizing why proper maintenance
is critical to ensuring optimum performance and maximum life of a deep-cycle

July 10 at 8 a.m. PDT
Importance of Deep-Cycle Battery Test Data This discussion will address why
independent test data should be the only yardstick used when comparing
competitive batteries and their manufacturers.

September 18 at 8am PDT
An Overview of Trojan's Premium Line
Designed with a 10-year battery life, Trojan's Premium line will be reviewed
including a discussion of the specific engineering and unique features of
this battery line which make them ideal for a variety of renewable energy

November 6 at 8 a.m. PST
Deep-Cycle Battery Manufacturing and Why the Manufacturing Process Is So
Important for Long-Life and Reliability The process of manufacturing
deep-cycle batteries is important to achieving long life and reliability.

This webinar will discuss why both battery design and the manufacturing
process separate a quality deep-cycle battery from those that simply do not
live up to their published specifications.

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.
