Sol, Inc. Donates Solar Lights to Local Boys and Girls Club

Greenway™ pathway lights provide safety and teaching tool for local area children.

Palm City, Fla., U.S.A. - Sol, Inc., the world leader in solar LED outdoor lighting donated two Greenway™ solar LED pathway lighting systems to the Boys & Girls Club of Martin County. The donation was recently featured in the Scripps Treasure Coast 'Luminaries' and the Treasure Coast Business Journal.


Mat Churchey, Director of Operations for the Boys and Girls Club of Martin County added, "The Boys and Girls Club of Martin County are very fortunate to have been chosen by Sol to receive our new solar lighting. The new lights will not only enhance the beauty and safety of our Palm City Club but also gives us a great tool in teaching our members the importance of thinking green and energy conservation. We are fortunate to have a company such as Sol that is willing to unselfishly give of itself in making our community a better place to live."

Sol's solar light donation program allows employees to identify local organizations that will benefit from Sol's efficient LED lighting. Once a charity has been identified, a team of volunteers participate in assembling the solar lighting systems and installing them at the charity's facilities during after-work hours. Charities are chosen based on several criteria including that the organization demonstrate a need for solar lighting, is registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is allowed to install solar lighting on their premises. Sol will be funding an additional five charities over the next 6-8 months.

"Our entire staff supports this worthwhile project that gives us a chance to give back to our community, especially during these tough economic times." said Michael Sonnenfeldt, chairman of Sol, Inc. "We are providing an environmentally friendly lighting system that improves the safety and comfort of local organizations that are making a difference in the lives of others."

The donation to the Boys and Girls Club is part of Sol's ongoing philanthropic effort in making solar lighting equipment donations to those in need. Along with providing solar lighting to Florida based charities, Sol donates to disaster relief efforts. Past recipients include: Hurricane Katrina Recovery Lighting (2005), Hurricane Rita Recovery Lighting (2005), Peruvian Earthquake Relief (2008), Port St. Lucie Florida Bus Shelters (2008), and Chapman, Kansas Tornado Redevelopment Lighting (2009).

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.
