Despite the historic success of tax credits in helping to move renewable energy industries forward, the reality is that these credits might not be renewed. Industries will have to rely more heavily on the savings possible through equipment and technology improvements.
Today (Oct. 14) the California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA) and Brightline Defense announced the results of a new poll showing very strong support from Californians for rooftop solar power. According to the new survey 90 percent of Californians favor rooftop solar power for generating electricity and 92 percent thought utility should not be able to limit peoples' ability to install solar on their homes and businesses. The organizations commissioned the poll as the California Public Utilities Commission considers whether or not to continue to require utilities to offer net metering to homeowners and small business owners as it has in the past.

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
