In addition, SPI will also offer its first dedicated symposium on the solar heating and cooling (SHC) sector, and for the second year in a row, SPI is partnering with Clean Energy Trust (CET) to present the tremendously success Start Up Alley, showcasing the best and the brightest in new solar companies.

More than 15,000 solar professionals are expected to attend SPI 2014.

"SPI is absolutely the best opportunity of the year to connect with your colleagues and industry leaders – to find out what's going on in solar and to get your company in front of potential clients and customers," said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), which presents SPI in conjunction with the Solar Electricity Power Association (SEPA).

Today, the U.S. solar energy industry pumps more than $15 billion a year into the economy, while employing 143,000 Americans nationwide and helping to fight pollution.

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.
