June 12, 2007 (Rohnert Park, CA) Copeland Creek Affordable Senior Apartment Homes reopened its doors with newly remodeled facilities and environmentally friendly solar energy systems. The new multi-family affordable housing complex features solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on each of its residential buildings and laundry rooms, totaling 86 kW in size, as well as solar hot water systems with high-efficiency on-demand water heaters, and solar pool collectors. The solar electric (PV) systems were designed and installed by SPG Solar, Inc. of San Rafael, CA.


After purchase by the Reliant Group, an investment group focused on acquiring affordable multifamily housing, Copeland Creek Apartments was converted into affordable housing for seniors and underwent major remodeling including re-landscaping, re-roofing, and re-painting of all buildings and interior re-models of its community buildings such as the club house and main office. Implementing environmentally friendly measures was a priority for the Reliant Group. "Solar photovoltaic has been a good investment at Copeland Creek. It is rewarding, both financially and environmentally. We are proud to be leaders in the growing movement implementing renewable energy strategies in affordable housing," said Chris Flynn, Asset Manager for the Reliant Group.

"Copeland Creek has been an exciting project to work with, not only due to their commitment to the environment, but also the commitment to the community by providing affordable housing to seniors. Over a 25-year period, the solar PV systems installed at Copeland Creek are expected to displace over 4.7 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions," said Dan Thompson, President and CEO of SPG Solar.

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.
