Eon plots airborne wind route

Renews:  Eon is collaborating with Dutch company Ampyx Power to develop the latter’s airborne wind energy system.
The agreement aims to further the development of the system towards commercial deployment.

Ampyx said Eon has committed to development and, if successful, construction and operation of a demonstration site for the airborne wind energy concept in County Mayo in Ireland.

The demo will be used for testing, verification and continuous operation of Ampyx Power’s system and its subsequent 2MW airborne wind energy system, the company said.

Ampyx said the 2MW system will be “tailored to repower the first generation offshore wind parks once the service life has come to an end”.

It started construction of the demo last year and in order to finance activities towards commercialisation has launched a new crowdfunding campaign targeting investments of €2.5m.  Full Article:

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.
