Solar Mounting Structures
Globally, solar installations are increasing at a rapid pace. India has also contributed significantly by adopting Solar Energy with an ambitions target of installing 100GW by 2022 which has been increased to 500 GW of renewables by 2030 out of which solar is poised to contribute atleast 50% of new installations ensuring India is on track to being one of the world’s largest solar power nations.
Continuous development of solar technology has helped bring down the prices making solar power more competitive than grid power which has bolstered global demand for installing solar solutions resulting in rapid growth. Solar is without a doubt the future and a leading source of renewable energy. Solar panels perform best when they are exposed to direct sunlight for the maximum number of hours and are mounted at a precise tilt angle which is defined by the site location to ensure maximum sunlight is captured by the solar panels. This is why it is extremely important to have the perfect Solar Mounting Structures installed in order to get the highest project IRR and the lowest levelled cost of electricity (LCOE).
The mounting system is one of the most intricate and important aspects of a solar power plant installation.
Solar Mounting Structures are crucial to the efficient and optimised operation of a solar power system, for both utility as well as rooftop installations. While most balance of system (BOS) components, such as inverters, DC cables, junction boxes, transformers, and so on, can be purchased from equipment suppliers, but the solar mounting structures need to be designed for each location which are customised for each client.
Ultra Mounting is a global leader in solar mounting structures. Ultra Mounting is a well-established company that offers cutting-edge solutions for all Solar Mounting Structures for both Ground Mount and Roof Top Solar PV Plants.
There are now various types of Solar Mounting Solutions and the 2 most popular and easy to deploy are ground mount and rooftop.
Ground Mount Solar Mounting Structure: A ground mount installation is where the solar panels are mounted on a racking system that is secured to the ground by using hot dipped galvanised steel members anchored to the ground with the help of a civil foundation. This method is more common for large scale utility projects.
Rooftop Solar Mounting Structure: A rooftop solar installation is where the solar panels are mounted on the roof of a building and is usually made of Aluminium in order to reduce weight and ensure durability. Due to the various type of roofs there are various solutions to cater to each and very requirement with the ultimate goal of capturing maximum sunlight on the solar panels.
