Ground-mount solar differs from rooftop solar in a few key ways. Previously, we shared some gorgeous examples of MOXIE solar installations on barns. But tree shade or limited space can be a barrier to rooftop solar. The big benefit of ground-mounted solar is greater control over production. Also, you can build larger arrays on the ground than most roofs. Our site-surveying team finds the sunniest part of your property. Then we share a variety of solar installation options.
Ground-mounted solar arrays are often pricier than rooftop arrays. Ground mounts require extra mounting hardware and sturdy mount piers.
