Solar Racking Installation Guide: Ensuring a Safe, Efficient PV System Jul 13, 2023

Today, more and more people are choosing to install solar PV systems, and the proper installation of solar racking is key to ensuring the high performance of your PV system. This blog will provide a guide to installing solar PV racking system so that you can install solar racking correctly.


First of all, choose a suitable installation location
When choosing the installation location of solar racking, the following factors should be considered:
  Sunlight conditions: Choose a well-lit, unobstructed area to ensure that the solar panels can receive the maximum amount of sunlight.
  Structural stability: Choose a solid foundation or building roof to ensure that the installed solar racking is stable and reliable.
  Space utilization: Reasonable planning of the installation location, maximizing the use of available space for the layout of solar panels.

Second,Take the necessary engineering measurements
It is important to take the necessary engineering measurements before installing your solar racking. Make sure you take the following factors into consideration:
  Wind Load: Ensure that the racking can withstand wind loads based on local wind speeds and project specific requirements.
  Foundation load capacity: Assess the foundation load capacity at the mounting location to ensure that the bracket is stably attached to the ground or building.
  Tilt and Orientation: Determine the optimal tilt and orientation of the solar panels based on the local latitude and solar altitude angle to increase energy output.

Third,Installing the solar mounting system
Preparation: Clean up the installation area to ensure that there are no debris or obstacles for smooth installation of the bracket system.
  Installation Foundation: Install the foundation of the solar mounting kit according to the design requirements to ensure a solid connection.
  Mounting Components: Install the frame and accessories of the solar racking according to the manufacturer's instructions, ensuring proper pairing and fastening.
  Connecting cables: Connect the solar panels to the inverter and the grid, ensuring that the cables are safe and secure to avoid damage or leakage.

Finally, quality check and maintenance
  Quality Inspection: After the installation is completed, a thorough quality inspection is carried out to ensure that the racking and electrical connections meet the standards and requirements.
  Maintenance: Regularly inspect the fasteners, linkages and cables of the solar mounting system to ensure they are in good condition. Solar panels are cleaned to remove accumulated dust to ensure the highest energy output.

Proper installation of solar racking is critical to the operation of your PV system. By choosing the right mounting location, taking the necessary engineering measurements, and following the guidelines for installing and maintaining your racking system, you will be able to obtain a safe and efficient solar power system! When you purchase solar bracket from POWERACK, we provide you with an installation manual and are always available online to solve your problems!
