Solar Installation Pros also offers excellent options for locating your solar electric system on a ground mount array. A ground mount array can be utilized in cases where there is not enough good roof space to mount the sized system to meet your energy requirements, to maximize the effectiveness of an array by facing it at optimal tilt and orientation to the Sun, or to avoid situations where the roof is partially or fully shaded by trees or other obstructions. Ground mount arrays are also slightly more efficient than a roof mount also due to lower temperatures and better cooling from air circulation than a roof mount.
Basically, a ground mount allows the array to face directly south at an optimal angle. Ground Mount arrays should be considered if open land is available, and if a good, sunny south facing roof surface is not available for a roof mount. Ground mount systems are slightly more efficient than a roof mount also due to lower temperatures and better cooling from air circulation than a roof mount.
Ground mount solar arrays are typically found more in rural locations due to the availability of space, and are less common in urban and suburban locations. Other solar ground mount systems are available, including pole mounts. Please ask your sales representative if you are interested in something different from our standard ground mount offering.
