While rooftop solar arrays are the most common choice for homeowners, there are many reasons to consider a ground mounted solar panel system. This includes homes or commercial buildings that simply aren’t structured in a way that’s conducive to rooftop solar panel installation. If your property isn’t ideal for rooftop solar, installing a ground-mounted system can actually save you money in the long term!
Cost: Ground mounted solar panels cost the same as rooftop solar on a per-watt basis and can potentially be more productive per panel than a rooftop solar array. Since they are not dependent on your roof, ground mounted solar panels can be installed at the perfect angle to optimize energy production.
Configuration: Rooftop solar arrays are restricted by the characteristics of the roof on which they are installed. If your roof isn’t at the right angle, doesn’t face south, or has obstructions like chimneys or skylights, then your solar array will be less productive. On the other hand, ground mounted solar panels can be located wherever the conditions are best.
Flexibility: Ground mounted solar systems can be sized to match your electricity consumption without the space restrictions of a rooftop system. They are very easy to install and can be placed on open land.
Ease of Maintenance: Ground mounted solar panels can be cleaned more readily and kept dust free.
If your electric bill is more than $100 per month, there are many flexible options to lower your costs for your home or business, and a ground mounted system is just one of those options.
