"The growing interest, participation and support shown to our seminars by some of the world's leading utilities, global automotive OEMs, tier 1 system developers, battery manufacturers, suppliers and researchers is impressive," said JC Soman, Director of Marketing at PlugVolt. "NextEnergy is a great location for this event. They've done great work in the energy storage and electric vehicle space, and have offered to include tours to demonstrate some ideas of what can be done on a larger scale if the right development partnerships are formed."

The tours will feature NextHome, a residential home featuring combining smart home, distributed generation and direct current technologies, which operates as a "living lab" within NextEnergy's testing and validation platforms and allows industry partners to leverage multiple Internet of Things frameworks and a residential microgrid. NextEnergy will also showcase "what's next" in vehicle-to-home, vehicle-to-building and vehicle-to-grid technologies, as well as demonstrate residential and community energy storage applications.

"By sharing our space and some of our demonstrations, we hope to inspire future collaboration to advance energy storage solutions in the utility and automotive markets," said Kelly Jezierski, Director of Energy Storage at NextEnergy. "We're looking forward to collaborating with PlugVolt on their October 2015 Battery Seminar."

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.
