Radiant Professionals Alliance Seeking Entries

June 25, 2012
MOKENA, Ill. — The Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) is now accepting entries for its System Design Showcase 2012 competition. The deadline to submit a completed application, including typewritten description, photos, and schematics/drawings for consideration in any of six categories is July 15. Categories include new or retrofit residential; new or retrofit commercial; snow/ice melting; electric; innovation; and cooling.

Industry peers will perform private, structured judging via a secure members-only section of the RPA website. A panel of industry experts will screen all projects, and those chosen as the best will be voted on by RPA members to determine which are worthy of awards for their achievement. Winners will be announced at the RPA annual system design showcase reception, Sept. 18 in Chicago.

Past winners have presented professionally installed systems accompanied by drawings; sizing information; and before, during, and after photos. Given the growing popularity of green technology, a short explanation of why a system was chosen by the customer versus more traditional methods is recommended. Additionally, a study demonstrating the efficiency of the system is similarly encouraged.

“We look forward to seeing the innovative and exceptional radiant projects our members have installed and sharing the absolute best of the bunch with the industry,” said Michael Geagan, director of technical services, RPA.
