WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on today's filing of a multi-faceted settlement to resolve energy issues in Colorado:


"This settlement, signed by more than 20 parties, represents a turning point in Colorado's energy future. It was a massive undertaking and Xcel Energy should be praised for their leadership.
"We applaud our fellow stakeholders who participated in lengthy negotiations and helped remove proposals that would have penalized the state's solar customers for years to come. Instead, this settlement expands solar access to low-income customers. It significantly increases the state's capacity for clean, reliable, affordable solar energy, including more than doubling the solar capacity for commercial and industrial customers through the Solar*Rewards program. Without a doubt, this will support more well-paying solar jobs in the state.

"We strongly encourage the Colorado Public Utility Commission to approve this deal, so Coloradoans can begin reaping the environmental and economic benefits of further solar adoption statewide."

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.
