Installing solar on tile roofs can be difficult and time-consuming. Quick Mount's Tile Replacement Mount provides a fast and easy way to install solar on tile roofs while protecting against water intrusion. The Tile Replacement Mount eliminates messy and time-consuming tile grinding and cutting to significantly reduce installation time and labor costs. The new mount works with all standard curved and flat tile roofs, as well as all standard rail-based racking systems. The Tile Replacement Mount is fully engineered to meet code requirements and industry best practices, and features Quick Mount's patented Elevated Water Seal technology for superior waterproofing.

"We saw a need in the marketplace for a simple and efficient method to mount solar on tile without compromising waterproofing or code requirements," said Quick Mount PV CEO Claudia Wentworth.

"The Tile Replacement Mount is really innovative - it not only makes installs go much faster, but also creates spare tiles on the job," said Dean Rafaat, owner of Wired into the Future Solar, a solar installer based in Pleasant Hill, California. "Because there's no tile grinding or cutting necessary, it really reduces our installation time. We just measure out the roof, put the mounts in, replace the tiles and start laying modules. And the stress relief of having extra tiles is priceless!"

The Tile Replacement Mount features a universal base mount, which works with all three flashing profiles: Flat tile, S-shaped, and W-shaped curved tiles. To offer installers and distributors cost effective stocking and packaging flexibility, the universal base mount is sold separately from the flashings and posts.

The Tile Replacement Mount is 100% IBC compliant and comes with a 20-year warranty.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
