So now you need to mount your Solar panels. Do you plan to mount the modules on the roof, the ground, or on a pole in the yard? Site analysis is, obviously, a very important aspect of sizing and building a solar power system. An additional consideration is the load the solar panels will be powering. Understanding what the panels will be powering allows you to select the best solar panel mounts for your specific application.
For example, a typical grid-tied solar powered system on a residential home will have significantly different solar panel mounting needs than panels powering a solar powered water pump in an agricultural setting. Whether you are mounting solar panels on a residential home, tiny house, remote cabin or for agricultural purposes, altE has your solar panel mounting needs covered.Read more +
Mounting your solar panel array is a crucial part of your solar system. The racking must meet local building code requirements, and be strong and durable enough to withstand the wind, snow, and whatever else mother nature throws at it for decades. Several options for mounting solar panels are available, they don’t always have to go on your roof. Ground mounting and pole mounting are available to move your solar array off the roof, or expand beyond.

Smaller solar arrays can be mounted on the side of a pole. This can be a great option for one or two solar panels, for example for a small cabin or water pumping system. A top of pole mount can hold from 1 to 15 solar panels on a single pole. The pole mounting gives you the advantage of being able to change the tilt of the solar array seasonally to maximize the output.
