How to choose Support for photovoltaic systems

When picking the best option for backing up photovoltaic (PV) systems, there are various details that need to be considered. The three main supports for these systems are ground-mount, roof-mount, and pole-mount; while ground-mounts are generally used for larger PV setups, roof-mount and pole-mount supports are more regularly found in smaller systems.

When selecting the material for your PV support, you have three options: aluminum, steel, and concrete. Aluminum is lightweight and resists corrosion, but does not offer the same levels of strength as steel. Steel boasts higher durability and strength but it comes with a heftier price tag. Concrete is the most costly option of all, as well as the heaviest, but provides unparalleled levels of strength.

It is essential to think about the wind and snow load when selecting a support for your PV system. The wind and snow load is a measure of the stress put upon the system by gusts of wind and accumulations of snow and it is crucial to ensure that this force is considered when deciding upon a support. A support with a higher wind and snow load can better weather the conditions in your area, so this should be taken into account while making your choice.

Taking all of these elements into consideration, you can make the ideal selection of assistance for your PV system.
