How to Choose the Right Mounting System for Ground-Mounted Photovoltaic Panels

Mounting systems for photovoltaic panels must be made from materials highly resistant to corrosion and varying weather conditions. Galvanized steel and aluminum are the most popular choices. Steel is valued for its durability and strength, while aluminum offers a lighter structure and natural corrosion resistance, making it ideal for humid and coastal locations.

The type of soil significantly influences the choice and design of the mounting system. Soft soils may require driven foundations to ensure the structure's stability. In contrast, on hard, rocky terrains, systems with screw mounts are often used, allowing strong anchoring without deep drilling. When choosing a structure for photovoltaic panels, it is also essential to consider its ability to adapt to various tilt angles, optimizing the panels' exposure to sunlight.

How to Prepare the Ground for Mounting Photovoltaic Structures

The first step in preparing the ground for mounting photovoltaic structures is a thorough examination. It is necessary to check the type of soil, groundwater level, and the presence of any terrain obstacles. Such analyses help determine the best mounting technique and the type of foundations needed. Ground-mounted photovoltaic panel installation begins with preparing the foundations or ground anchors. Next, the supporting structure or frame is installed, on which the panels will be mounted. After the frame installation, photovoltaic panels are attached using photovoltaic screws and mounts. The final step is connecting the panels to the inverter and monitoring system.

Differences Between Roof-Mounted and Ground-Mounted Photovoltaic Systems

Roof-mounted structures differ from ground-mounted structures mainly in the mounting method and construction. Roof installations must be adapted to the type of roofing, such as tiles or metal sheets, and consider the load-bearing capacity of the roof structure. In contrast, ground-mounted systems offer more freedom in choosing the location and direction of the panel tilt, which can contribute to higher energy efficiency. Ground-mounted photovoltaic installations offer several advantages compared to flat roof installations. Primarily, ground installations are not limited by the size or shape of the roof, allowing for the installation of more panels and better positioning relative to the sun. Additionally, maintenance and potential repairs are easier to conduct on the ground.

Ground-mounted photovoltaic structures are designed to be adaptable to various types of surfaces, both flat and sloped terrains. With modular assembly kits, frames can be configured in different setups, allowing optimal adaptation to terrain conditions and maximizing energy production.

Mounting Structures for Flat and Sloped Roofs

Various mounting structures are available on the market, which installers can choose based on local conditions and roof types. Wholesalers offer mounting frames for photovoltaic panels dedicated to sloped roofs and solutions for flat roofs. Mounting PV panels on these types of roofs involve dedicated mounting structures, often made from lightweight yet highly durable aluminum. A roof-mounted photovoltaic frame provides not only solid attachment but also allows precise positioning of photovoltaic modules in the most effective position relative to the sun. On the other hand, ground-mounted and free-standing photovoltaic structures are an excellent alternative when roof installation is not possible or insufficient.
