Solar Photovoltaic Mounting Options

Pole Mount - medium sized pole.

As Scotty from the original Star Trek would say "How many times do I have to tell you, the right tool for the right job!". Our 2010 investment in machinery makes pole mounting a straightforward, fast and far less invasive job than digging a big hole with an excavator, building concrete forms, filling it in and cleaning up the yard. .

Our 30" heavy-duty auger can drill a 8' deep hole in about 20 minutes. Many
design considerations are required to determine the pole size and depth.
We can work with you to determine this in advance of installation.

Once the hole is drilled, the pipe is set into place with conduit to allow a
tidy exit of wire to the underground trench

Trenching machine cuts a trench to lay the electrical wire.

Concrete truck arrives. Unless site is extremely remote, bulk concrete is
generally the most cost effective method.

Concrete is allowed to cure while the inverters and batteries installed.
Solar PV rack is assembled, and lifted into place with crane on last day.
