In Case You Didn't Know - Additional Options for SFUSA Ground Mount Structures

In Case You Didn't Know - Additional Options for SFUSA Ground Mount Structures

Solar Foundations USA offers a number of beneficial add-ons for the SFUSA Ground Mount System. These features include equipment support columns for mounting electrical equipment, black panel hardware for a sleek appearance, and micro-inverter mounting hardware for a secure and simple connection.

Equipment Support Column (ESC)

Solar Foundations provides an optional ground screw designed to support the typical weight of electrical equipment. This additional ground screw is placed adjacent to a north column main support to reduce the span between columns.  This permits UNISTRUT (or similar channel) to span between the columns.

  • About 80% of Solar Foundations’ clients request an ESC
  • Allows for a clean and professional look for mounted equipment
