Given the diversity of mount systems available, PV systems can be installed in a variety of configurations to maximize your solar energy output. Entech will design your New Jersey solar energy system to provide an optimal solar solution for your project.
Roof mounted PV solar panels are cost-effective and the most common type of solar panel installation for New Jersey residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Typically light-weight, PV panels can be supported by most structures and are mounted directly to the structural members of a building.
This simple and least expensive solar panel mount system is completely stationary. In this scenario, the PV solar panels are installed to optimize energy output based on an annual average angle of the sun. Fixed mounts can be applied to roof, ground, platform, and pole mount systems.
PV solar panels can be configured and mounted on the ground if sufficient roof space is unavailable or disallowed. Commonly, ground mounts consist of a wedge-shaped steel structure anchored in concrete footings.
This type of solar panel system can easily be adjusted by hand two or more times during the year to account for the lower angle of the sun during winter. Adjustable mounts can be applied to roof, ground, platform, and pole mount systems.
Platform mount systems are ideal for projects that may disallow roof or ground mount systems due to structural or logistical obstacles. PV solar panels can be integrated directly into the structure of a building specifically designed to support PV panels. Common applications of platform mount systems include carports, awnings, or curtain walls.
These are the most efficient mount systems for PV solar panels. The tracking mount system follows the path of the sun during the day to maximize the solar radiation that the PV panels receive. Tracking mounts can only be applied to ground mount systems.
Like platform mount systems, pole mount systems are ideal for projects that may disallow roof or ground mount systems due to structural or logistical obstacles. A PV panel array can be mounted to a single pole mount.
