Your Ground Mount Solar Rack delivers users an affordable and durable solar panel ground mounting system. Despite its budget-friendly price, this Ground Mount Solar Rack offers numerous advantages over the competition:

Budget-Friendly Price 

Your Ground Mount Solar Rack is one of the most affordable ground mounted solar racking systems on the market today. Given that this Ground Mount Solar Rack is constructed from galvanized steel, rather than a more expensive aluminum alloy, the overall price is kept to a minimum. These material savings are then passed onto the consumer!

Despite its budget-friendly price, it still manages to offer numerous other advantages over comparable ground mounted solar panel racking systems.

Straightforward Installation

It is also incredibly easy to install, which is thanks to its straightforward, DIY design. With only four main components, it requires minimal hardware and tools during installation.

This means you will not have to hire professional installers, which helps keeps costs to a minimum. It also means that the entire system can be installed in far less time than a traditional solar panel roof mount, or other ground mount systems.

Incredible Durability

While you may assume that the affordable price and simple design mean that the Ground Mount Solar Rack must be unstable, it is actually incredibly durable and designed to withstand the elements.

The key to this ground mount solar racking system’s strength is actually its money-saving galvanized steel design. Galvanized steel has an incredible strength rating, which means your solar panels will have a sturdy and reliable ground mount.

In fact, even when fully loaded with solar panels, the Ground Mount Solar Rack is rated for 125mph winds! The rack can also support a tremendous amount of weight, as it is rated to withstand a 60 pounds per square foot of weight beyond the weight of the solar panels. This is incredibly important for those that live in areas that receive significant snowfall.

Outstanding Versatility

You can use the Ground Mount Solar Rack to hold solar panels of all sizes and power ratings, so there is no need to worry about compatibility issues. Simply select the option that matches the number of panels you have in your array, and you will receive and appropriately sized system.

It can also be set to have a fixed tilt of anywhere between 5° and 45°. This means you can find the angle that works best for your geographic location, elevation, and unique sun exposure.

You also have the option to choose and install the Ground Mount Solar Rack as an adjustable system, which allows you to alter the angle according to the season and the sun’s position in the sky. When installed this way, the rack is adjusted manually and has a range of 15° to 65°. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Install a Ground Mount Solar System?

Installing the Ground Mount Solar Rack is not an overly complex process. Start by choosing a site that is as level as possible, then install the posts at the appropriate depth for your desired solar panel positioning.

Post spacing will be determined by the number of panels you are using, as well as their specific dimensions. The exact distances can be found in the included installation manual. Once posts have been positioned, you will assemble the trusses and attach them with the provided hardware.

Panels can then be installed and attached using the provided clamp assemblies.

How to Clean Ground Mount Solar Panels?

For best results, clean the panels using distilled water and a clean microfiber cloth. If distilled or deionized water is not available, simple tap or hose water will work, just be aware that it may leave behind water stains.

How to Mount Solar Panels on the Ground?

Once your Ground Mount Solar Rack is installed and positioned correctly, mounting solar panels to it is actually a fairly straightforward process. You are provided with solar panel clamp brackets, which are easy to use and designed to hold your solar panels securely in place.

    Adjustable solar rack

    I bought two 18 panel tilt adjustable solar racks. The racks themselves are amazing. Rock solid sturdy. My grandchildren will likely be dead before these fail (not including the adjustable jacks) My order didn’t come with instructions but that may have been an issue with shipping. Sinclair emailed me a set of generic instructions but they were not honestly very useful. Sinclair however does answer their phone and they are very pleasant to talk to. But if they had simply labeled parts with stickers life would have been much simpler. The top metal beams that go East to West must be lined up in the correct order. Once the rack was up the panels were quickly installed .The quality is outstanding. Sinclair has videos and generic instructions on their website but it is still like a 3D puzzle.

    Puzzle time

    Ground mount is great!!! Set it up in a day. It was delivered without hardware. After contacting three times I got them to send it out. The documentation and instructions were almost non existent. The single page which is included in the photos on the "Shop Solar" site is all that I got (not helpful) for a novice.

    I'm just saying; for $3k+, it would have been nice to have just a little bit more assembly instruction. With all that said, I do love the mount and honestly will probably by another as we upgrade our off-grid system.

    Sturdy structure

    Easy to put together and mount all of the panels. There were holes missing in the center section that took the most time to align and drill.
