BACKWOODS SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEMS started as a home based business in 1978. We continue to this day to be dedicated to operating the business with the same commitment to quality goods and services that our customers have come to know since the beginning!

Backwoods Solar is a company specifically dedicated to serving homes, villages and communities so remote that access to utility lines is not practical. For over 37 years, we have specialized in independent electric power for the remote off-grid or grid-tied home. We have nine solar electric specialists offering personalized attention to self-reliant home owners who choose and install their own power systems, as well as larger installers doing off-grid battery based and grid-connected solar around the world.
In the last 5 years we have expanded our focus to offer remote power for telecom systems, water pumping, clinics and rural villages around the world. What makes us unique is that our technicians live in homes that get their power from the wind, water or sun using the products we sell in our catalog. Our team personally answer all letters, email, and calls during business hours, to help with your questions and equipment needs. Your questions will get answered and your needs will be met. It is our earnest goal to leave you completely satisfied.

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.
