Roof mounts are the most popular choice for locations that have a suitable roof.
The modules are located above most objects that would cause shading problems
and the large roof surface makes it easy to attach the mounting structure. A
roof mount also locates the modules out of the way and out of sight, reducing
the possibility of vandalism or theft.
Similar to the roof mounts, these structures mount on the ground, typically
on concrete footings. These mounts are usually taller than a roof mount, to
avoid grass and shrubs blocking the sun. Ground mounts are easy to install and
provide easy means of seasonal angle adjustment at ground level.
Pole mounts are easy to install and allow the array angle to be adjusted after
installation. The mounting frame fits on a length of schedule 40 pipe (available
locally at any metal shop) set securely in a concrete form in the ground.
