Types of Ground PV Systems with Different Foundations

Solar energy offers a low carbon footprint, clean, reliable energy that can support your electricity even when the grid fails, and savings for any budget. And a ground solar PV system is a system of solar panels that are mounted on the ground. But for different ground terrains, you may need different ground solar mounting systems. How many types of ground solar systems you know? Let's talk about it in the following article.

Types of Ground PV Systems with Different Foundations

Beam Driving Ground Solar System
If the soil is floppy and clean of debris, then you can choose the ground system with piles. The pile is required to be high corrosion resistance and high strength. You can install the ground solar racking system by driving the piles into the ground. And the superstructure of the rack and panels is then attached to those beams. Driven beams are inexpensive, and may be constructed more quickly and simply than other foundation methods.

Ground Screw Foundation Ground Solar System
If ground conditions are not suited for smoothly driven beams, the ground screw driving way may be used. This type of system allows for an improvement in the ground mount's ability to handle vertical loads at relatively shallow depth.

Concrete Foundation Ground Racking System
Ground-mounted systems don't always have to penetrate into the earth. Capped landfills and other brownfields are ideal for solar arrays, as they are underused land areas, but their temperamental ground conditions cannot be disturbed. For this kind of ground, you can take the concrete foundation ground racking system into consideration. This kind of system uses a man-made foundation to hold the rack and panel in place.

Hybrid Ground Solar Racking System
For variable site conditions or unknown soil issues, the hybrid system is an absolute "must". These systems are comprised of a mix of ground-mount types, including driven beams, anchor systems and ballasts. Hybrid systems are used to address the specific needs of an installation with more than one type of terrain.

So the best way for a contractor to determine the ideal foundation for a given soil type would be to conduct a proper subsurface investigation.
