Ground Mounts

GROUND MOUNTS

If you have the space, and would rather not utilize your roof, Clayco Electric can build you a ground mount system.

Ground-based mounting supports include:

  • Pole mounts which are driven directly into the ground, or embedded in concrete.
  • Foundation mounts such as concrete slabs, or poured footings
  • Ballasted footing mounts such as concrete, or steel bases that use weight to secure the solar module system in position, and do not require ground penetration. This type of mounting system is well suited for sites where excavation is not possible such as capped landfills and simplifies decommissioning or relocation of solar module systems.

Ground mounts can also be used as structures. Solar panels can be mounted as shade structures where the solar panels can provide shade instead of patio covers. The cost of such shading systems are generally different from standard patio covers, especially in cases where the entire shade required is provided by the panels.

With so many options for ground mount systems, Clayco Electric can help you design and build what is best for your needs.
