Arvada, CO August 19, 2010: SkyFuel, Inc., designer and provider of the award winning SkyTrough® parabolic trough for the Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) industry, is pleased to announce the promotion of Alison Mason to Director of Marketing Communications.


For the past two years, Alison served as Director of Marketing for SkyFuel's ReflecTech Division. ReflecTech's mirror film - the only one proven for long-term, outdoor use in solar concentrators - is used in SkyFuel's parabolic trough solar concentrator. During her time with ReflecTech, Alison worked in the same office as the SkyFuel R&D team, and had plenty of opportunity to observe and learn about the development of the SkyTrough® and other SkyFuel technologies. Her background in engineering, which includes research in Colorado State University's Solar Thermal program, allows her to participate in key aspects of SkyFuel's technology development in an especially meaningful way. Prior to working at SkyFuel, Alison ran her own solar consulting and photovoltaic installation business - SunJuice - in Northern Colorado.

As SkyFuel embarks on a new phase of growth, scaling up manufacturing processes to meet volume demand for the SkyTrough®, Alison's duties will include interaction with the media, industry, government, and academia to ensure that a clear and accurate picture of SkyFuel is widely communicated. "Alison has shown herself to be a valuable team player," said Rick LeBlanc, SkyFuel's President and CEO. "Her diverse skill set is a tangible asset to the business side of a technology company like SkyFuel."

Ms. Mason holds an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University and a B.S. in Materials Science and Environmental Engineering from Rice University. She is the Chairperson of the American Solar Energy Society's CSP Division, and LEED accredited by the U.S. Green Building Council.

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.
