When people think about Solar America’s SunQuest 250 evacuated tube solar collectors, they think of them as being installed on the roof of a property. There is an obvious reason for this– most solar SunQuest 250 panels are installed on roofs! However, a rooftop is not the only place for a solar installation. Solar America products are as versatile as they are efficient and can be installed or retrofitted in a number of different ways. Let’s take a look at some of the ways solar panels can be mounted.
Roof mounted solar systems
As we’ve already explained, roof installations are the most common place to find a SunQuest 250 solar thermal collector panel and choosing this type of mount allows you to make the most of space that would remain otherwise unused.
Installing solar panels on a rooftop will allow them to face the sun for long enough to provide sufficient energy for hot water and heating. There is also no worry of shade from trees or other properties blocking the sunlight.
Ground mounted solar systems
When there is enough usable space on the ground surrounding a building, a ground mount can be the ideal solution. Ground mounts are probably the easiest way to mount evacuated tube solar collectors, with a simple A-frame structure attached to concrete providing a solid and sturdy base. A ground mount system can be mounted to make the absolute most of the sun’s UV rays and harness the energy for maximum gains.
Pole top mounted systems
It is also possible to mount SunQuest 250 evacuated tube solar collectors on poles. This type of installation is straightforward and allows panels to remain away from potential damage that can be caused on the ground.
Solar panel placement
Regardless of what type of mount you choose for your solar panel installation, the placement can make an important difference in the amount of heat generated by the panels.
