However you can also ground mount.
I'm thinking of mounting them adjacent to a 1m high south facing wall. The advantage for us is;
a) Protection from the stormy weather (50-80mph) that we consider 'normal' winter winds up here,,,,
b) Much easier to clean salt, bird, cat poo build up off them.
c) Possible relocation if we need to develop the garden,,, as my missus keep having 'new' building ideas
d) Easier maintenance for a creaky old duffer that falls off/over things all the time,,,,,,
e) Somewhere new and warm for the cats to have a dump on,,,,,
How are we all doing with the solar? I’ve had a few 10kWh days this month with the good weather. Having a partly shaded array this time of year I won’t generate as much as the people with unshaded south facing roofs but at the current energy prices payback time will be much quicker.
We're up and trucking... Availability of batteries means I am currently running a 5.2 until my 8.2 arrives.... Some teething problems with some proper dodgy readings, but I turned the CT clamp around and all appears well.
I still need to complete the switch to Octopus Agile and get a smart meter installed before this journey is completed, but so far, I'm very impressed with the system, and am becoming suitably obsessed with the app and managing consumption.
