The solar array is expected to generate 281,128 kWh of energy annually

TUSK is closely watching as the Louisiana Public Service Commission soon decides the fate of energy choice in the state.

BATON ROUGE, La., Oct. 27, 2015 -- Tell Utilities Solar won't be Killed (TUSK) launched an ad campaign today calling on Louisianans to voice their support for solar energy. In the ad, former Republican Congressman Barry Goldwater Jr., TUSK Chairman, talks about the benefits of rooftop solar from a conservative prospective. Goldwater Jr. cautions that utilities are attempting to eliminate their competition by gutting policies that allow customers to generate their own solar power.


TUSK is closely watching as the Louisiana Public Service Commission soon decides the fate of energy choice in the state. Net metering - the policy that allows households and businesses to get credit for power they send back to the grid - is capped in Louisiana. The Commission must decide whether to raise that cap.

Utilities across the country have obstructed lifting caps on free market rooftop solar growth. As part of a national utility playbook to eliminate competition from rooftop solar Louisiana utilities are requesting changes that would weaken net metering altogether.

"Monopoly utilities are trying to limit solar growth despite the benefits solar provides in Louisiana," said Goldwater Jr., "It is important Louisianans tell the Public Service Commission that they want to continue to have the choice to put solar on their roofs." Goldwater concludes the ad by asking Louisianans to visit www.dontkillsolar.com to contact Public Service Commissioners. Click here to view the message.

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.
