Solar Racking

 is simply the mechanism where panels attach to their structure – rooftops, parking structures, even open land. Racking components are made of various metals and plastics designed to last for decades.

The types of racking systems include:

  • Rail Based – Typically attached to sloped roof surfaces where panels are attached with two railings (top & bottom). The natural slope of the roof gives the panels their angularity towards the sun.
  • Ballasted – A racking system used on flat rooftops or paved surfaces which requires no attachments. The weight of ballast blocks maintains the systems connectivity to its structure.
  • Ground Mount – Ground mount systems mount into open land by either concrete footings (the same concept as s fence post) or “ground screws” (large threaded anchors for system posts).
  • Tracking – Single or Double Axis Tracking allows the panels to rotate (along 1 or 2 of its axes) and follow the sun as it crosses the sky. The benefit is increased production since the panels remain at an optimum position to harvest sunlight.

Below is a list of racking manufacturers available for your mounting needs.
