Continues its growth through strategic acquisition of projects and expertise

MINNEAPOLIS--Geronimo Energy announced today the acquisition of the project development portfolio of Midwest Wind Energy (MWE), including near term construction-ready projects in Illinois, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. The acquisition strengthens Geronimo's presence in the Nebraska and Wisconsin markets and brings it into the Illinois market for the first time. Geronimo has also welcomed numerous MWE employees to its team, where they will continue to develop and help market the projects that they have been fostering for the past few years.


"Midwest Wind Energy has shown its ability to develop viable wind projects while exhibiting the same dedication that we have towards helping rural communities, so this was a nice fit for both of our organizations," said Blake Nixon, president of Geronimo Energy. "The Midwest projects complement our portfolio very well and the employees that are joining our company will bring valuable perspective to our team."

"Geronimo is well positioned to advance these projects and to continue the track record of success that Midwest Wind Energy established in the central United States," said Stefan Noe, president of Midwest Wind Energy. "We are particularly pleased that our key staff will continue to be involved in these projects so the transition will be seamless for the landowners, local government officials, and utility partners in each project area."

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.
