Lindsay Leask, Senior Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said:

"Offshore wind holds huge opportunities for Scotland, and the industry is very clear that cost reductions are absolutely central to our long term success.

"It is fantastic to see the Scottish Government supporting the sector in this way, and collaborative initiatives like the Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator are exactly the sort of programmes we need to really drive down those costs.

"Scotland is at the forefront of next generation offshore wind technologies and home to what is set to be the UK's first floating offshore wind farm. It's really exciting to see so much research and development activity taking place in Scottish waters."

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.
