Why would a home or business benefit from choosing a ground-mounted solar panel system over roof mounts? Here are five advantages to consider.
1. Installation Flexibility
Not every roof is situated at the optimal angle and orientation for solar panels, which can mean you won’t get optimal energy production. Ground-mounted systems can be easily positioned for maximum
production, and most can be adjusted to keep the best angle year-round.
2. Easier Maintenance
If you ever need maintenance or repairs for your solar array, it will be much easier for workers to diagnose and fix problems if it's mounted on the ground rather than on your roof.
3. Better Performance
Solar panels mounted on a roof tend to be very close together and absorb heat from the roof tiles, which can lower performance. Thanks to better airflow and cooler conditions, ground-mounted solar arrays often perform better in all weather conditions.
4. Future Roof Replacement
Today’s solar panels are built to last much longer than the average roof. Choosing ground-mounted solar panels means installers won't have to disassemble the array to repair or replace your roof, so there’s no risk of damage during the process.
5. Structural Preservation
To install solar panels on a building, you have to put multiple holes in the roof. Using solar ground mounts allows you to avoid weakening the roof with lag bolts.
