Tech Team Q & A: East-West Mounting Systems

Q: Do you have solutions for a ground mount with an East-West slope?

A: Yes, AeroCompact offers the AeroCompact G+ ground mount East/West racking solution. The AeroCompact G+ is available in 10° module tilt and is elevated over 15.5″ off the ground. The East/West facing system can be installed with ballast, ground screws or a combination of both.

Q: How do you calculate East-West performance vs South facing arrays?

A: Calculating East/West production depends on what tools are being used to calculate system production. If using PVWatts, I would recommend calculating each plane separately, then adding the production values. The more advanced software will model systems with various tilts and azimuths.
