Solar Systems

Ground Mounted Systems

  • Ground Mounts

    Ground mount systems are solar panel mounts that are installed on the ground. The most common type of ground mount is a wedge structure constructed from steel supports anchored in concrete footings.

  • Tracking Systems

    The sun's position in the sky varies both with the seasons and time of day as the sun moves across the sky. Solar panels can yield more electricity when they're pointed at or near the sun, so a tracking system can increase the effectiveness of the panels over any fixed position, at the cost of additional system complexity. There are several types of tracking systems available to maximize a system's energy output.

Roof Mounted Systems

  • Flat Roof Mount

    Roof mounted PV panels are the most cost effective and common type of installation. Typically light weight, most all roofs are able to accept this mount system without the need for structural modification.

    Unlike with sloped roofs, flat roof applications have the ability to install the solar modules without making any penetrations in the roof.

  • Standing Seam Metal Roof Mount

    No roof penetration is required with this type of installation. The rack mount is simply clamped onto the standing seams to keep the array in place.

  • Asphalt Roof

    Asphalt shingles are easy to walk on, cut, remove, and re-install. Shingles can be easily removed to install the mounting hardware and then patched or replaced around the hardware to ensure the roof's integrity. The PV panels are added after the roof has been finished.

    Compared to other types of roofs such as wood, slate, and Spanish tile, asphalt shingles are more durable and can be walked on without the fear of breaking them. This may improve the speed of the system's installation and reduce labor costs.

Parking Canopy Systems

  • Parking Canopies

    Solar powered canopies are a perfect way to capture the sun's energy for reducing your facility's electric energy usage while keeping your employees' or customers' cars protected from the sun, rain, or snow.

    Canopies can also be constructed to capture rainwater for irrigation or other grey water uses. Learn more about Solar Parking Canopies.
