Is your solar racking lacking?

Ground mount solar racking and solar panel mounts are a critical component when considering installation costs.  Racking material costs on carports and ground mounts is often the only aspect considered during project budgeting.  The financial impact on soft costs are considerably important to the bottom line cost of utility scale solar installations.

Exploring the Total Cost

Racking manufacturers often position themselves based on material costs this tact leads to overlooking the amount of time that installation takes.  On ground mounted solar panel systems, these costs significantly burden the timeline and solar project budget.  Multiple component solar racking such as mounting brackets and abundance of solar racking hardware increase the task time to complete a solar installation.

Solar Construction – Soft Costs

The best solar racking & mounting systems feature minimal components and attachment hardware.  Additionally, the amount of solar panels per post is a significant indicator of labor per solar panel costs.  To ensure minimal soft costs at the outset, comparing how many panels per post quantity of attachment hardware per panel is an indicator of the amount of cost in the installation.

Budgeting the Complete Solar Project

Solar Mounts LLC has ten years of experience in perfecting the solar ground mount and ballasted solar ground mount for reduced on-site labor.  Over the years Solar Mounts LLC has reduced hardware and racking components while increasing the panels per section.  The two high solar racking design allows for ten panels per section.  This translates to the most panels per post available in the solar Industry.

Conclusions – Utility Scale Solar

Solar construction costs are a significant portion of the costs associated with ground mounted solar installation.  Do not sacrifice labor efficiency for cheaper racking, most often the imbalance will be felt when it’s too late to rectify the cost.  The total cost of construction has to be considered in the racking purchase, especially in utility scale solar design.
