gstar's New TriStar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch was on display at Intersolar north America 2015. This device, along with batteries and other components, can be applied to existing grid-tied solar systems to allow persons to switch on critical backup power in the event of a utility power outage. The vast majority of owners of solar systems have discovered to their dismay, that their existing systems will not work during a grid outage because the system's AC inverter will cease to operate, and power from the solar array is left stranded. Until now, if people wanted backup power, they had to consider purchasing and installing a fuel generator or installing an AC coupled solution, or some other solution that resulted in environmental concerns, excessive costs, or installation complexities. The Morningstar solution represents a clean, quiet, affordable, and scalable solution to this problem.

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.
