While rooftop solar panels are more common than ground-mounted solar panels, they cannot be installed on all types of properties. Rooftop variants typically face the south, south-east or south-west to receive direct sunlight. If your roof is not positioned in the abovementioned manner, you should consider ground panels instead. Bright Eye Solar offers professional solar panel installation services. We are the perfect team to help you go solar!
About Our Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
A ground-mounted system consists of solar panels that are mounted on the ground around one’s property. The panels may be placed a few inches or feet off the ground, as well as rest at an angle of 30 degrees, facing south. This is done to maximize solar energy absorption and output. These solar panels are an awesome alternative if your roof has obstructions such as a chimney or skylight.
There are two main types of ground-mounted solar panels:
- Standard mounted solar panels: Metal frames are driven into the ground to secure the panels at a fixed angle.
- Pole mounted solar panels: Multiple solar panels are attached to a single pole and elevated higher off the ground than their standard counterparts. This variation may also incorporate tracking systems that allow the panels to automatically tilt to capture the optimal amount of sunshine.
Benefits of Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
No major infrastructural changes are needed when you install such solar panels. If you opt for roof-mounted panels, parts of the property may need to be reinforced to accommodate the extra weight of the equipment. Due to the space under these solar panels, they allow for increased airflow and this improves overall performance.
Ground-mounted solar panels are easy to maintain; simply keep them free of dust and you’ll be fine. If you are planning to increase solar energy usage, the existing ground-mounted solar panel system can be easily expanded as well. Due to the panels’ angles, you have significantly more freedom in terms of placement.
How Bright Eye Solar Can Help
Our team will first schedule an initial consultation with our customers and conduct a site survey. We need to understand the specifics of your property, project timeline, and budget. Bright Eye Solar can also perform a complete home energy audit to determine the overall efficiency of your property and its suitability for solar. If you decide to install ground-mounted solar panels, we will provide a detailed proposal that outlines all the work that needs to be done, the cost of the system, as well as the anticipated annual and monthly electricity output.
Bright Eye Solar proceeds to design the system, submit the necessary paperwork for state and federal incentives, install the panels, perform initial tests and adjustments, and finally set up an online remote monitoring and management platform so that both the customer and installer can monitor the production of your system.
