Does solar have to be installed on my roof or can I get a ground-mounted system?

Ground-Mounted Solar Systems

Ground-mounted solar systems are installed on the ground, as opposed to on roofs. This type of system is often used for businesses or homes that have limited roof space or that have roofs that are not suitable for solar panels. Ground-mounted solar systems can also be used to maximize solar production in areas with good solar exposure.

There are a few advantages to ground-mounted solar systems:

  • They can be installed in any location, regardless of the roof.

  • They can be designed to maximize solar exposure.

  • They can be larger than rooftop solar systems, which can produce more electricity.

However, there are also a few disadvantages to ground-mounted solar systems:

  • They can be more expensive than rooftop solar systems.

  • They can take up more space.

  • They can be more visible than rooftop solar systems.

If you are considering a ground-mounted solar system, it is important to weigh the advantages and disadvantages carefully. You should also get quotes from several different solar installers to compare prices.

Here are some of the factors that can affect the cost of a ground-mounted solar system:

  • The size of the system: The larger the system, the more expensive it will be.

  • The type of solar panels: Monocrystalline solar panels are more efficient than polycrystalline solar panels, but they are also more expensive.

  • The type of inverter: String inverters are less expensive than microinverters, but they are not as efficient.

  • The cost of labor: The cost of labor can vary depending on the location and the complexity of the installation.

  • The cost of permits and inspections: The cost of permits and inspections can vary depending on the local jurisdiction.
