Ground MountsThere are several options for mounting your Solar PV System on the ground.
Concrete Ground Mount
For concrete ground-mounted solar systems a concrete foundation is poured for the ground mount to be fixed to. This is very typical of a ground mount installation in a cyclone region.
Manufactured by Clenergy, this is the most expensive type of fixed ground mount and can cost up to $500 per kW installed (without the concrete).
Ground Screw – by Krinner
Although costly, the ground screw system is very good, and great for remote regions with very low wind speeds. It can be installed using a ram device and is extremely secure.
The installation costs of ground screw systems are approximately $700 per kW fully installed including labour, equipment hire and materials.
Ground Anchor – by Mega Anchor
The mega anchor system is also a good choice of mounting system that be installed in any wind region. It’s a concrete free pile driven foundation system that is quick to install and costs in around $600 per kW fully installed.
