On July 16th, the City of Cannes presented its new electric vehicles of which 15 are supplied by NEWTEON. Mr Brochand, Deputy and Mayor of Cannes was present.


Member of the Comit 21, Cannes practices an active environmental policy including the use of electric vehicles.

Sergio Contaldo, General Manager of NEWTEON, presented the 15 NEWTEON's vehicles ordered by Cannes to Bernard Brochand: 14 Electric Porter blindvan with lead batteries and one Electric Porter trash collector with lithium batteries.

Mr Brochand showed a lot of interest and enthusiasm and also confirmed Cannes' ambition to go further in this direction for ecological reasons, on the one hand, and for economical reasons on the other hand. Cannes is totally aware that electric vehicles are carbon neutral but they offer reduced current costs, despite a superior purchasing cost. Considered on several years, choosing electric vehicles is a more economic solution than endothermic vehicles.

Many journalists and personalities attended the presentation such as Jacques Mollard, President of AVERE France.

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.
