U.S. Solar Industry Applauds Creation of Global Clean Tech Fund

"America’s solar industry applauds the world’s government and business leaders for their commitment in Paris to funding clean energy research."

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Following is a comment from Rhone Resch, president and chief executive officer of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on the creation of a multi-billion dollar clean energy fund, announced today at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21).


"America's solar industry applauds the world's government and business leaders for their commitment in Paris to funding clean energy research. While it's clear that more needs to be done to tackle the world's global warming challenge, the formation of this clean technology fund sends an irrefutable message that use of zero carbon energy sources, such as solar energy, must be the norm if we are to take meaningful steps to halt rising temperatures. Solar energy has contributed to lower greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. power sector over the last 10 years. If we are to have a realistic hope of continuing greenhouse gas reduction, greater deployment of 21st century solar technologies - both in the United States and around the world - is absolutely critical. We look forward to working with President Obama, the business leaders who have stepped forward to address global warming, and leaders of all nations as they seek ways to deploy solar energy, and other low and no carbon sources, to reduce carbon emissions while enabling their economies to grow."

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.
