Customers in India are prepared to “jump into solar power” at this time. With the aid of all the information available on the internet, they are in an excellent position to read up on, learn about, and ask questions regarding solar panels. Once they are persuaded, they are willing to pay the necessary sum to purchase a solar panel. However, they entirely overlook the mounting framework in all of this research. A mounting structure is the sturdy base or foundation of a solar system that, like the trunk of a tree, supports the solar panel. The system will collapse if the base is weak.

It happens frequently that a buyer is prepared to buy a solar panel but hesitant to spend a few dollars more on a mounting framework. Because it appears to be a simple piece of metal fabrication, he believes it would be simple to have it fabricated by a local blacksmith. However, this isn’t always the case. We will discover the advantages of purchasing a mounting structure directly from the solar company in this tutorial, along with the step-by-step installation instructions.

What should you take into account when setting up your mounting structure?

1. Angle

The latitude of your location, anywhere in the world, should be taken into consideration when choosing the solar panel tilt angle (the angle between the horizontal ground and the solar module). It is commonly accepted that the modules would produce the most energy if they were installed with a tilt angle equal to the location’s latitude. A solar tracker can also be used to improve conversion efficiency. The Angle Pro app can be used to check the installation’s angular direction as well.

2. Navigation

The direction in which the solar panels are installed affects how well they work. Since they receive the most sunshine in this direction, solar panels work best when they are facing south. Directions to the east and west are also useful. The only direction we should avoid mounting solar panels is north.

3. The area

On the map, different areas receive varying amounts of sunlight. As a result, it’s crucial to verify your longitudinal and latitudinal location before installation. The Maps of India app can also be used to determine your location.

Here are the latitudes of the major Indian cities:

Zone – 1: J&K, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand – 30-360

Zone – 2: Rajasthan, UP, Delhi, Haryana, Bihar, North EASTERN STATES – 24-300

Zone – 3: Gujarat, MP, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Orissa – 18-240

Zone – 4: Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, AP, Telengana, Kerala – 12-180

4. Shadow Region

Before constructing your mounting structure and enhancing the performance of the solar panel, look for any shadow areas, tree shade, barriers, etc. to avoid.

5. Installation surface

Ensure that the installation surface is strong and smooth to support the weight of the entire system.

Benefits of Purchasing a Solar Panel Mounting Structure from a Supplier of Solar Panels

Even while a mounting structure appears to be nothing more than a steel framework, it actually involves a number of technological components that can only be understood and used by solar panel manufacturers. You won’t be able to create a solar panel successfully unless you have a thorough understanding of how they are built and function, as well as the ability to instruct the blacksmith in doing so.

1. Understanding the stand’s structure 

A blacksmith is not in a position to understand the location of the mounting structure’s holes or the height of the legs. On the other hand, a solar company can alter a stand to meet the needs of the solar pane.

2. Different panels require different supports

A blacksmith will not be able to adjust the height, weight, and length of the mounting structure since they are not familiar with the requirements of solar panels.

3. Purchase and installation together 

If you buy a mounting structure from a solar panel company directly, it will also handle the installation for you. The company’s representative will be in charge of ensuring that the mounting structure and panel are installed in a secure and safe manner. Before leaving your home, he will test everything for you as well.

4. Consultation 

A company representative will be better equipped to assist the customer with the installation area as he has the necessary knowledge to choose the latitudinal and longitudinal location and look for any shadow areas. In order for the customer to get the most out of his solar panels, he will make sure to put the structure in that specific location.
