Solar Panel Mounts


There are several different methods to mounting solar panels. Most residential systems will be installed on a ground based mount, or on the roof by securing the mounting assembly to the structural members of the roof. Commercial systems can be installed in the same manner, or they can have a "ballasted" mounting structure. A "ballasted" mounting system makes no penetrations through the roof surface, thus protecting the integrity of the surface. The ballasted system relies on the weight of the solar panels and ballasting materials (often concrete block) to secure the solar rack to the roof. Very large solar arrays (greater than 15KW) can be "self ballasted." This situation relies on the mass of the solar panels and the racking structure alone to secure the system. Standing seam roofs also have a special mounting system that requires NO penetrations and secures directly to the standing seams.

ECI Wind and Solar can use any method of mounting your solar panels that best suites your situation. Solar panel mounting systems range from $0.40 - $0.75 per watt of installed solar panels; please contact us for exact quotes for your project.
