There are differing types of utility-scale solar mounting systems; the difference is within the way they’re installed and therefore the purpose. the most systems include rooftop, ground, and carports. Within these are differing types of installations.
Rooftop solar mounting systems
Sloped roof systems are often seen on residential buildings.
Flat roof mounting systems
Flat roof mounting systems are mainly used for commercial or industrial buildings; often buildings that have large, flat rooftops.
• Easy to put in , and sometimes tilted to maximise sun exposure
• Ballasted and non-penetrating systems
• Ballasted and non-penetrating systems distribute their weight onto across the roof. The weight-based loading is employed to stay the arrays on the roof
• Hybrid system, mix ballast and penetrating or non penetrating anchors to stay solar arrays on the roof
• These solar mounting systems use steel or aluminum, making installation quick and straightforward
Ground-mount systems are used on mostly undeveloped land (including landfills). they will even be used for residential areas but are typically not first choice for homeowners.
• These systems are often installed at any angle or orientation, and are usually easier to put in and maintain
• Standard ground mounts
• Use metal framing that’s driven or screwed into the bottom to carry up panels at a hard and fast angle
• Pole mounted solar systems:
• These involve one pole to elevate multiple panels higher off the bottom , allowing it to tilt automatically maximizing sun exposure
Carport mounting systems
Carport mounting systems are perfect for commercial and industrial parking lots, with either single or double row parking.
