Ground-mounted Solar or Rooftop Solar? 2015-11-11

These days,many people choose to install solar. However,there is a common problem that troubles us. That is where to install your photovoltaic panel. You can choose to have concrete based ground mounting or you can have roof solar mounting. So, which option is better? We will have a discussion about the benefits of these 2 different solar installation arrangements.

First of all,let us talk about the important advantages of roof solar mounting installations. The panels fit seamlessly with your pre-existing rooftop for a more streamlined appearance. With rooftop solar, there’s no need to clear away extra land. You can still install that pool or deck that you’ve always wanted. Your solar panels protect your roof from weather and wear and tear. This, in turn, increases the lifetime value of your property. Rooftop solar is usually easier and faster to install than ground-mounted systems. Although rooftop PV systems are the most common installation type in the US, there are times when this arrangement isn’t ideal,such as spatial limitations,shading,orientation and pre-installation upgrades.


Now let’s explore why you might want to consider ground-mounted PV installations instead. Although ground-mounted systems are less common, they offer important benefits. If your property has a lot of unused land, you can install a much larger PV system and generate even higher savings. For properties without south-facing roofs, ground-mounted solar installations allow you to maximize your energy generation potential. You can set up your solar panels in the sunniest regions of your yard to avoid shading. No changes to existing rooftops are necessary with ground-mounted systems. Below are a few reasons why you may want to avoid ground-mounted PV systems,such as less land,aesthetics,and time.


It is a well-known fact that there is no single “best.” Both types have important benefits and some disadvantages. Which one ultimately depends on personal preference and property type.
