As the name suggests, ground-mounted solar panels are mounted to the ground instead of a roof. They’re a great option for houses with roofs that are not suitable for solar panels and for homeowners who don’t like the way rooftop solar panels look. They can also be a great option for off-grid houses with a lot of land.
There are two types of ground-mounting systems for solar panels.
- Standard ground mounts: A metal frame is driven into the ground and holds your solar panels at a fixed angle.
- Pole mounts: Multiple solar panels are supported by a single pole, which is driven into the ground.
Both options work well in the right scenario. SouthFace Solar & Electric will recommend the best mounting system for your solar panels to ensure the highest output and an aesthetically pleasing installation.
