Discounted Solar Power Equipment in Hurricane-Affected Areas
altE is also providing discounted solar power equipment to residents in great need in hurricane torn areas of Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas and the Caribbean Islands throughout October. altE offers a 15 percent discount to anyone has been affected by the storms.

"Solar and alternative energy allows people to become quickly self-sufficient with a robust power source," said Sascha Deri, CEO of altE. "We are providing solar power equipment at close to cost to help people immediately in areas devastated by the hurricanes. Folks can install the systems to get back up and running off grid, independently and self-contained. It also empowers communities with the opportunity to create small, more resilient micro-grids in the future that won't have the same vulnerabilities as traditional, large, centralized utility grids."

altE has also been working with other organizations, offering free design and expertise with heavily discounted equipment. altE has contacted many of the major solar equipment manufacturers and is currently working on obtaining discounted equipment from them to help with relief efforts.

These storms aren't the first time that altE has stepped in to offer assistance with off grid alternative energy. Last year, altE assisted International Rescue Group as they were delivering emergency supplies to Haiti after Hurricane Matthew by building portable solar generators, which were delivered to the local mayor's office to improve their communication.

Featured Product



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.
