Scientists call for Major Renewable Hydrogen Initiative

Report Shows Emerging Resource is America's Clean and Affordable Answer to Dirty Air, Blackouts, Rising Gas Prices and Foreign Oil Dependence See solar- powered hydrogen demonstration motor model in action

WHAT: Scientists and experts to call for a national commitment to a major energy policy initiative. Findings and recommendations of joint energy policy study will be publicly released. Hydrogen, generated by renewable energy resources, is the most sustainable, secure, healthy, economic, environmentally friendly and socially compatible new energy option, according to extensive analysis by leading energy policy, academic, and trade association experts and organizations.


WHY: National Security. Skyrocketing Health Costs. Economic Recession. Job Loss. Global Warming. War. Terrorism. Environmental Degradation. Each of these complex social, political and environmental problems requires intense commitment and resources to resolve. While not a panacea, this new comprehensive assessment finds that renewably generated hydrogen is one of the most multi-faceted, positive solutions to these and related issues confronting our society. Strong federal leadership needed to fully exploit this virtually inexhaustible resource.

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.
