Energy storage, growing global market generates added interest in OutBack products
OutBack Power has been in the renewable energy business for 14 years and has built its reputation largely on rugged and reliable, off-grid solar power systems, often used in remote locations around the world where the nearest utility grid may be 100 miles away.
The company is also a member of The Alpha Group, a group of independent companies that design and manufacture a wide range of power solutions, from advanced intelligent UPS systems to standby and renewable energy products. From leading the construction of a 29 MW solar farm in North Carolina (U.S.) to supplying an off-grid solar system for the Niassa National Reserve in Mozambique, the combined expertise of the Alpha Group leverages more than 39 years of power technology and innovation.
"We see the recent focus on energy storage as a positive for the entire renewable energy market," said Drew Zogby, president of Alpha Technologies Incorporated. "It validates what OutBack has understood and led the industry with for more than 10 years - true energy independence can only be achieved with an energy-storage-based system."
The company will take the opportunity at Intersolar Europe to share some of its knowledge on energy storage at the Intersolar Grid Power Forum. Alpha's Director of International Business Development, Gord Petroski, will speak on the topic of "Energy Storage and Power Electronics in Residential and Small Commercial Systems" Thursday, June 11 at 3 p.m. (located at the BSWSolar booth B1. 558 in Hall B1).
On display at the OutBack Power booth (B1.570) will be a wide range of the company's energy storage solutions, from EnergyCell RE Top Terminal batteries - designed for light to medium duty applications - all the way up to EnergyCell 2V High Capacity battery for maximum storage capacity. All of OutBack's batteries work seamlessly with other products on display, such as the IBR2 and IBR3 integrated battery racks; the OBE series of outdoor battery enclosures; the award-winning Radian Series inverter/chargers; the new FXR Series of grid/hybrid inverter/chargers; the FLEXpower ONE and FLEXpower THREE integrated systems, OutBack's easy-to-install, pre-wired systems for renewable energy applications with small to medium power requirements and OutBack's OPTICS RE Internet-enabled remote monitoring and control platform.

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.
