SOLAR GROUND MOUNT INSTALLATIONS

Experienced in the provision of Solar Ground Mount Installation

 

Solar ground mounts are suitable for locations where there is ample available ground space, and they offer advantages such as scalability, flexibility in installation, and the ability to optimize panel orientation for increased energy output. They are commonly used in open areas such as fields or vacant land.

 

A solar ground mount refers to a system where solar panels are installed directly on the ground, using a support structure or mounting system to secure and position the panels for optimal sunlight exposure. Unlike rooftop solar installations, which are attached to a building's roof, solar ground mounts are freestanding structures placed on the ground, making them suitable for various applications, including residential, commercial, and utility-scale solar projects.

Key components of a solar ground mount system include:

Support Structure or Racking System

The support structure, also known as the racking system, provides the framework for mounting solar panels. It is typically made of durable materials such as steel or aluminum and is designed to withstand environmental conditions.

Foundation:

 

The foundation anchors the support structure to the ground, ensuring stability and resistance to wind, snow, and other forces. Foundations may vary based on the specific soil conditions and project requirements, and they can include options like concrete footings, driven piles, or ballast systems.

Tilt and Orientation

Solar ground mounts can have a fixed tilt angle, keeping the solar panels at a constant position, or they can incorporate tracking systems. Tracking systems allow the panels to follow the sun's path throughout the day, optimizing sunlight exposure and increasing energy production.

Mounting Rails:

 

Horizontal mounting rails are installed on the support structure, providing a platform for attaching and securing the solar panels. Mounting rails are designed to facilitate easy installation and maintenance.

Solar Panels

Solar Panels

Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) modules, are the primary components that capture sunlight and convert it into electricity. 

These panels are mounted on the support structure in an array, forming the solar ground mount system.
