Most Cost-Effective Solar Racking Solution: Fixed Roof Mounts



Roof mounts tend to be the least expensive way to mount your solar system because they take advantage of your existing roof structure to provide a foundation for your panels. This saves money in racking material and labor costs to complete the installation.

Roof orientation and tilt angle for solar panels:

The orientation of your roof is the first thing to consider when considering whether you want to install a system. In the southern hemisphere, due north is the best option. Northeast and northwest-facing roofs are second-best orientations after due north, by east and west. If your array faces due east or west, you will never see more than 85% performance from your panels.

Types of mounting systems for roof-top solar panels:

Universal Mounts

The most common way to mount systems is first to install brackets, In the case of tile, slate, and shingled roofs, it may require cutting precise holes in the roof material for the mounting brackets to protrude from.

While on corrugated steel roofs, usually, fix L feet to the hole with the metal roof by tapping screw first. Then fix the Mounting Rail, mid clamps and end-clamps. This mounting system is a cost-effective and easy installation, also you can use Kliploks instead.

This is the most typical system for small- to medium-sized arrays, If you need to adjust the tilt angle of your array, it is possible to do this with a universal mount by increasing the height of the rail higher up on the roof.
