Our First Ever Ground Mounted Solar PV System

This 6.66 kWp Solar PV System was our first ever ground-mounted installation and we are proud of how it turned out and are fully equipped to install more in the future. So if you are looking at investing in a ground mounted Solar PV System to power your home, make sure you get in contact today and we will be happy to assist you with your queries.

Certain roof types are unable to hold solar panels so a ground mounted Solar PV System could be a suitable option for some of you out there. If you are lucky enough to have a larger garden or field and looking to go solar you may want to look at creating your own solar farm to produce as much solar energy as possible.

The system was installed at the backend of the customer’s back garden and was implemented into the ground using a drill to drive the mounting kit into the ground. The system consisted of 18 x Longi Solar, LR4-60HPH-370M black frame solar panels as well as 18 x P401 optimizers connecting to one solar panel each which is what we do for most residential projects. For commercial projects, on the other hand we spilt one optimizer between 2 solar panels as most commercial jobs are much larger systems. The solar panels are facing south, so the system can receive the maximum amount of sunlight so it can produce the maximum amount of energy possible to power the home and swimming pool facility of the customer. The system is wired underneath the surface through a pipe system that runs from the bottom of the garden all the way to the house. We wired the system up to the outer house where the SolarEdge5000H inverter and Tesla Powerwall were due to be installed.

The system is estimated to produce 6.81 MWh of energy every calendar year but this can all change depending on what kind of weather we are getting. The customer is also be helping the environment by having this installation as well as producing his own clean energy as the system saves around 1.59 tonnes of C02 emission which is equivalent to 73 trees being planted.
