Planting a New Kind of "Victory Garden"

We are being marginalized, patronized and ignored by our current energy policies. We're not being encouraged, or even invited, to participate individually in the solution to the problem. I feel that it's incumbent upon each of us to "plant our own renewable energy ‘Victory Gardens'".

Radiant electric floor warming

The efficiency offered by radiant floor systems can heat an ample sized kitchen on a 10-hour heating cycle for only 58 cents a day (20 cents for a bathroom). All without releasing any unburned gases or matter that may disturb the environment.

Renewable Policy Analysis - September, 2010

GlobalData's latest renewable policy report includes major policy developments in the renewable energy market for the month August, 2010. This includes updates in policies in China and the US.

Residential Geothermal Install Case Study

When Tim and Tracy Gilchrist sought an alternative way to heat and cool their non- traditional home in Laurentian Valley, Ontario, little did they realize what a noticeable impact their decision would have on their children and pets.

Selling Solar Thermal

It is clear the PV industry has done a much better job communicating solar electric. I understand the various industry associations recognize this confusion. I hope we see more of the consumer marketing aimed not just at solar thermal but explaining the differences and how a dual energy system is another good option to leverage their solar investment.

SGS Conducts QHSE Management for the Belwind Bligh Bank Offshore Wind Farm in Belgium

In July 2009, SGS was assigned a contract to carry out Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management for the Belwind Bligh Bank Offshore Wind Farm in Belgium. SGS provides QHSE Management activities during the design, manufacturing and installation phases of the wind farm project in order to assure high quality standards and a safe project execution.

Solar - It's Coming

"Tennessee Valley Authority does away with solar subsidy." Would any businessman who knew that his obsolescence was imminent not do likewise?

Solar Air Heating That Makes Sense

Air transfer makes solar thermal power more reliable than ever.

Solar Hybrid Collectors

PV-T, which is hybrid Photovoltaic and Thermal collector, production of both electricity and hot water is done simultaneously. The PV module's heat is absorbed to produce hot water so that PV efficiency can be optimized as the heat is transferred into fluid to produce hot water.

Solar Installation on Parking Deck Will Save Taxpayers $1 Million in Energy Savings

This project is a win-win for the County, not only in terms of monetary savings, but also by establishing the County of Bergen as a role model for other counties and municipalities in the state to adopt renewables and implement clean energy practices.

Solar Thermal Systems

Alanod-Solar is the world's largest manufacturer of high selective absorbing surfaces for solar hot water and commercial process heat + high reflecting aluminum mirrors for CPV, CSP, and combined heat and power.

SOLAR vs. NUCLEAR

Few people realize what a huge impact several hundred thousand solar water heaters can have on a country's energy demand. Thermal solar (heating water) is a sensible and efficient way to avoid the expense and potential danger of nuclear plants. Hot water is always needed and solar energy is the best method to meet those demands. Since thermal solar heats our oceans, isn't it about time we utilize the proven technology of solar water heaters?

SolarPlaza Top 10 stock listed solar energy companies

The endless pursuit of solar energy as a realistic alternative energy source to fossil fuel shows no signs of waning; which is not only good news for businesses and consumers, but also great news for investors as well. Never underestimate the power of technology.

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.
