Solar Panel Racking & Mounting
PV racking and mounting hardware secures your solar panels to a rooftop or the ground. It's a crucial part of any solar array and must meet or exceed the snow and wind load threshold of the panels themselves. Proper solar panel racking and mounting should also allow for cooling airflow behind the modules.
There was a time when adjustable-tilt and sun-tracking mounts were used to squeeze more power out of your modules. But with advances in PV itself and the low cost-per-Watt solar panels now available, the electrical/mechanical complexity of an advanced racking systems no longer justifies the modest gains in PV production it can offer. An extra module or two on a simple, fixed racking system is a much better investment in the long run!
