Ground Mounting Solar Power
Although rare, not every rooftop is suitable for mounting a solar energy system. Often the available rooftop area is not sufficient to generate the preferred or needed amount of solar power to get the best solar savings and meet energy demands. For that reason, ground mounting of solar is frequently done to expand solar power generation to a capacity needed. When a rooftop is completely unsuitable, ground mounting may be the only viable option.
Solar ground mounting generally refers to most of the off-roof options. There are additional requirements and complexities that arise when choosing this method. Some of things Southern Light Solar must consider include the following:
Land Condition – The land must be clear enough for both for physical work and to avoid shading the solar panels once installed. Soils may need to be checked or analyzed to makes sure they are satisfactory and won’t create a future issue from settling or other effects.
Permitting – Some local authorities have their own requirements for permitting and inspecting any structures placed on open land. In general, ground mounting a solar energy system adds cost and in some cases can add significant time to complete a project.
