How To Choose Roof Solar PV Mounting System? Oct 12, 2023

With the continuous development of renewable energy, solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are gradually gaining popularity as a green energy solution. More and more people will use their roof space to install solar systems. But different types of roofs require different types of solar mounts to install the solar panels. This blog will introduce the corresponding solar PV mounts for common roof types:

Flat Roof (flat roof with large slopes): For flat roofs, common solar PV mounts include fixed mounting system and tilt mounting system. Fixed mounts tilt the solar panels onto the mount to increase solar efficiency. Tilt solar racking adjust the angle of the solar panels to suit the season and different sunlight angles.

Metal Roof: A common type of solar bracket used for metal roof solar mounting systems is a steel bracket. This type of bracket can be mounted directly to the threaded holes in the metal roof, providing solid support and ensuring proper clearance between the solar panels and the roof for ventilation and heat dissipation.
