Solar panels are mounted on a frame, which sits on concrete blocks. The fixed system will produce up to 9.6kW-h for an approximate average of 4 – 4.2 hours per day in optimal yearly conditions.
Roof Mount Systems
Solar panels are mounted on aluminum tracks fastened to the roof of an existing building. The roof mount system will produce up to 9.6kW-h for an approximate average of 3.8 – 4 hours per day. Roof mount systems are only suitable for roofs that are both south facing and structurally strong enough, usually newer buildings.
Solar panels are mounted on a DEGER tracking device, which follows the sun to produce maximum energy production per day. The DEGER dual axis trackers have the capability of approximately 40% greater efficiency than a fixed or roof mount system or an average of 5.6 – 6 hours of sun per day.
