Solar Mounting and Racking Systems

The solar panels may be the shiny part of a solar pv system, but they wouldn’t stay up there without proper mounting systems.

Now that you have a good idea on your solar panel systems options, it’s good to know how the installation is done.

Solar panel mounting and racking system installation

The usual process begins with this 9 essential steps that a DIY customer or solar installer needs to follow to install a typical roof mounting system:

  • Preparing all required components. Drilling, pencils, fall protection kit, chalk blocks, rails, clamps, bolts, screws and more.
  • Determining the distance between the rails on the roof or your supporting structure. According to the distance of pre-drilled holes in solar panels that you bought. Draw a reference line with the use of a chalk line.
  • Checking in the guidelines of local authorities. Generally, these limits are related to the edges of the roof and will be necessary to take into account when setting the initial position of the rails and the panels.
  • Finding rafters on the rooftop. Drilling a spot hole through the roof into the attic. After drilling and locating the position of the drill from the inside, your or the the installer is able to adjust the center of the truss that will be the supporting spot for the rails.
  • Mounting the flashings. After securing hole positions, the installer must mount the flashings (the supporting structures that will attach the panels to the roof). Bolts and caps are then used to connect these flashings to the rails.
  • Mounting the solar racking. Rails are put in place. The installer also needs to make sure that they are lined up and are properly elevated with the help of the flashings.
  • Wiring management clips and installation of grounding bolts. Grounding bolts are attached to the bare copper wire that goes to the grounding system of the house.
  • Installing micro-inverters or power optimizers of each panel and attaching the wires to the management clips.
  • Securing solar panels to the mounting system. Finally, you will need to use the clamps and T-bolts to make sure the panels are well-tight to the mounting system.
