EMPOWERMENT SOLAR LAUNCHES INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN TO ENERGIZE THE MIDDLE EAST

The company seeks to raise $50,000 in forty days to fund staff training, initial projects, and startup costs.

Washington, DC - Empowerment Solar launched their first fundraising campaign on Indiegogo today to fund its mission of providing distributed solar electricity systems to communities across the Middle East and North Africa. The company seeks to raise $50,000 in forty days to fund staff training, initial projects, and startup costs.


"My U.S. Marine Corps experience in Iraq showed me how communities throughout the Middle East and North Africa have suffered without reliable electricity," stated Empowerment Solar Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Morgenstein. "I have since dedicated my career to helping solve this problem, and through Empowerment Solar, we will be able to give these communities the energy they need to help businesses grow and families thrive. As these communities develop, we are helping create a more stable and peaceful Middle East through solar power."

The Indiegogo campaign can be viewed at www.empowermentsolar.com/indiegogo and continues through December 20, 2015. There are a variety of perks available for contributions. The campaign also kicks off with a special event Monday, November 9, 2015 from 5-8:30 PM EST at Poste at 700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20004.

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.
