Your solar module array will generally be positioned on your roof top, facing as close as possible to the north for the best sunshine, and inclined to the same pitch as your roof. Your roof top generally provides the least shaded position and is usually unused space. There are situations where a ground mounted array is desirable and practical, and usually leads to the optimum panel aspect for the greatest power yield.
The panels must be secured to the roof of your building or ground structure and able to withstand our weather extremes.
Mounting systems are generally specialised aluminium rails fastened through the roofing material to the roofing purlins or rafters. The systems are designed to a wind loading code and must be installed according to guidelines for a safe and durable installation.
