The price uptrend of polysilicon persists this week. After experiencing the inventory selloff in September, the inventory pressure forcing listed producers to lessen stock levels by offering price discounts is largely relieved. Meanwhile, the demand in the downstream has also seen noticeable improvement. The polysilicon makers in China have seize the timing to spike the prices since October. Moreover, several Chinese polysilicon makers are conducting annual maintenance that have raised the speculation of limited overall supply and contributed to the uptick in price as well. On the other hand, the non-Chinese polysilicon makers, who responded to the price uptrend not as faster as Chinese rivals in the previous weeks, have accelerated the pace on increasing the quotes this week as to trim the gap with polysilicon prices in China.

The North Madison Fire Company voted in favor of installing solar panels on the roof of their station as a way to stabilize future electric costs and assure operating funds. Recognizing that solar panel fires have been on the rise throughout the US the Company looked for suitable options for a fire detection system to monitor the solar panels. Ultimately they choose Protectowire CTI (Confirmed Temperature Initiation) Series Linear Heat Detector as a protective measure.

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.
