Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
A popular installation approach is ground-mounted solar panels. In situations where you have some ground area to work with (free of shade), and when you want the array off your roof, consider a ground mounted solar option.
About 30% of our solar installations for farms and homes are ground-mounted. Tick Tock Energy has installed some of the largest residential ground-mounted solar arrays in Illinois for homes with large electric bills.
Ground-mounted solar considerations are economical installations and eliminate the need for rooftop work. Open frame structures allow greater ventilation of the panels, improving electrical efficiency of the solar array since solar cell efficiency drops under hot summer temperatures.
