Georgia Solar Installers To Host Electric Car Show, Film Event

Solar Energy USA, Georgia's largest residential solar company, is hosting an electric vehicle film viewing and electric car showoff on Friday, October 19th. The event is being held to help homeowners understand how to reduce both fixed costs and dependence on foreign oil.

Solar Energy USA, a national design and installation firm located in Alpharetta, Georgia, is pleased to announce an exciting electric car event.


Revenge of the Electric Car' is a 2011 feature documentary film which chronicles the development of the modern electric vehicle (EV) with a focus on the Nissan Leaf, GM/Chevy Volt, and Tesla Roadster. On Friday, October 19th Solar Energy USA will be hosting an EV car showoff followed by a viewing of Revenge' with a discussion on the future of personal automobile transportation to follow.

"At Solar Energy USA we want to educate local Georgia residents about the exciting future of American energy independence – independence from rising power costs thanks to renewable energy like solar power as well as autonomy from dependence on foreign oil thanks to innovative all-electric vehicles and hybrid plug-in vehicles" says Perry Bell, Chief Executive Officer of Solar Energy USA.

According to Michael Chance, a Solar Energy USA spokesman, "A recent Solar Energy Industries Association survey found that 9 out of 10 registered voters believe it is important for the U.S. to develop and implement solar power. At our upcoming electric car show and film viewing, we hope to illustrate yet another reason to look into adding solar panels to your home or business – reducing household fixed cost by using an alternative energy source in lieu of gasoline. Americans have been looking for a way to decrease our dependence on foreign oil and the solution is finally attainable thanks to free, unlimited fuel from the sun that can now be used to power an automobile."

The electric car event will take place Friday, October 19th at Solar Energy USA's corporate facility in Alpharetta. The SEUSA office is powered by 155 rooftop photovoltaic solar panels that are connected to an EV charging station located in the parking lot which supplies a the company's Chevy Volt, and other Alpharetta electric car owners, with free fuel on a daily basis.

Solar Energy USA asks anyone interested in attending the upcoming event to RSVP via their Facebook event page listed as a hyperlink above.

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.
