Side of pole mounts (SPM) are easy-to-install mounting structures for PV modules that provide a secure position on a single pole. Because they're designed for a specific number of solar modules, they minimize the number of required components and streamline the installation process considerably. Side of pole mounts are constructed using corrosion-resistant hardware and high-strength components, so you can be confident that you are investing in a mounting system that is engineered to stand the test of time. Additionally, most side of pole mounts offer the flexibility of adjusting tilt-angle settings to maximize energy production during all seasons.

There are many applications for side of pole mounted solar arrays, including:
Because these applications typically require only limited power (20W - 190W), they are an ideal match for side of pole mounts and best suited for small solar panel arrays.
There are several benefits to using side of pole solar mounts. First and foremost, they are a highly cost-effective option that simplifies installation. The mounting system itself has an extremely simple design, which reduces the complexity of installation as well as the number (and expense) of various components.
In addition, a side of pole mounting system also offers optimal sun exposure for solar panels. The height of most side of pole systems decreases the amount of shade from trees or neighboring structures, maximizing the amount of consistent sun. Finally, side of pole mounts also keep equipment out of reach of potential vandals, reducing the risk of damage.
Side of pole mounts generally do not include the poles they must be mounted to. These poles (typically schedule 40 pipe with a 2-6" diameter) are long, heavy, and would be extremely expensive to ship - but are quite easy to find locally at hardware or building supply stores.
Like any solar system installation, side of pole mounts require that you consider the impact of wind. Be sure to ask for details regarding the wind load capabilities of both the pole and side of pole mount to confirm that you meet the recommendations.
In general, most side of pole mounts are built to withstand winds of up to 90 mile per hour. If you are in a high-wind area (such as coastal regions), the recommended minimum wind load capability is 125mph - which may rule out some or all side of pole mounts on your list. Feel free to ask for additional details about wind load capabilities for the products you are considering.
