Ground Mounted Solar Panels


Maximising Solar Energy Efficiency

Ground-mounted solar panels utilise the space available on the ground rather than the roof. They can present many advantages such as being easier to adjust, increasing their exposure to sunlight and enhancing their capabilities of harnessing solar energy.

Can Solar Panels Be Mounted on the Ground?

A Simple Solution

Ground mount solar systems present an efficient way to maximise the sun’s direct current. While rooftop panels might lack flexibility, ground based solar panels can be tilted at an angle to absorb more sunlight than they could otherwise. Aligning solar panels with the sun’s path is one of the main benefits to solar panels on the ground and allows for consistent exposure throughout the day and long-term savings in return.

Advantages of Ground-Mounted Solar Systems

There are several key advantages to choosing ground mount solar installations for your energy needs.  

Enhanced Efficiency ⚡

Due to the open space, ground-mounted solar panels have better access to ventilation which makes the panels more efficient.

Flexibility in Location 📍

Although rooftop solar panels offer the same renewable energy, they can’t always be positioned where the sun is shining like solar panels on the ground.

Added Value 📈

Domestic properties with solar panels have been known to increase in value And any excess energy your solar panels gather can be sold back to the grid.

Considerations for Ground-Mounted Solar Systems

Certain aspects to consider when opting for ground-mounted solar panels are the following:  

Land Availability

The amount of space available is crucial for such an installation. It’s important to assess the available area and ensure your solar panels can receive adequate light based on their location.

Installation Costs and Return on Investment

While installation costs vary, your return on investment is dependent on a few factors such as initial costs, electricity rates and how much your property value has increased.

Environmental Impact and Sustainability

Certain environmental considerations need to be taken before installing ground-mounted solar panels such as disruption to the habitat.

Process of Solar Panels Installed

It all begins with a free consultation and quote request. We can determine the best options based on factors like available space and calculate your estimate.  If your area is suitable for ground-mounted solar panels then we will arrange a suitable time to discuss the layout and design. 

The last step in the process is the installation which will take place on the date you selected and once completed we will continue to monitor the solar panels for optimal function.

Top class work by Luke. I have a 14 year old Solar System and my meter readings were clearly far lower than expected last week. Contacted Rolling Renewables Ltd, spoke to Charlotte and she advised me clearly, sent me an inspection quote. Luke came 3 days later, checked out my System, found I needed a new meter. Installed new meter, with improved wiring over existing wiring. Delighted with the professional work, very tidy all round. Will definitely keep Rolling Renewables Ltd on my trade list for my Solar System.

Great feeling from word go. We had a number of other companies come around with "a surveyor"- which had a feeling of a sales person. Rollings came around and listened to what we wanted and then gave a better suggestion. Very happy with the quote and the fitting. Installers were courteous and efficient. I cannot give any higher praise.

Very happy with service which was recommended to us by a neighbour. Very tidy job (my heart was in my throat when I saw the garden being dug up but the adjustments were invisible once they had put it back together again!) Good coordination with scaffolders who were also efficient and we received clear answers to all our questions from Head Office. Very happy with our solar panels. Reputable, knowledgeable and well qualified company - would highly recommend.

Excellent Service. I have an existing solar panel system, coming up to 13 years old. The inverter packed up and needed replacing. Spoke to a couple of companies, then contacted Rolling Renewables. Spoke to Paul, who is very knowledgable regarding solar and battery. He explained that I needed to “replace like for like” so as not to invalidate my FIT payments. I chose this moment to discuss battery storage and made arrangements to meet Paul in his show room. (Well worth a visit) He was excellent and explained all my options. I am a person who asks lots of questions and Paul answered them all. The inverter was fitted by Luke. He set up the wireless connection and explained how it worked. He also went through my questions regarding battery storage. A credit to the company. Finally, they are very competitive on price, at no point during discussions were they “pushing” for a sale. When I do get batteries installed, Rollings Renewables will be my installer! Excellent. Thank you Paul and team.

Paul and his team at Rollings Renewables provide an excellent service. He took time to make sure that our solar panels would be sited to work most efficiently. The installation went smoothly and our panels, battery and car charger are working perfectly. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend Paul Rollings and his team. Paul is very knowledgable, trustworthy and has integrity. His team’s workmanship installing my Tesla Powerwall and solar panels was excellent. Highly recommend Rollings Renewables.

I've been really pleased with the professionalism of Rollings Renewables, from the first visit by Paul to discuss requirements and put together the quote, through to the installation team who did a superb job to minimise the visible impact of the installation and the excellent after sales support. I'd had a couple of other quotes, but the confidence in their product and advice on the installation convinced me to select them. In the first few weeks of use the system has significantly reduced my electricity costs, even with limited sunlight, by being able to take advantage of an off peak tariff to top up the battery overnight.

Rolling's recently installed a full solar system at our house in Upton upon Severn.. From the first quote to the final commissioning they were very professional and did all they said they would. Quality of the installation was good and the price was very competitive. The only slight hiccup was than the internal electrical engineer turned up a day early when i was at work. But after a short chat they agreed to come back the following day when i was home. Luke the installation engineer, was very pleasant, very thorough, and certainly knew his stuff. he also left the area clean and tidy. i would certainly recommend Rolling's if you are looking for a solar installation I wouldnt hesitate to recommend rollings
