Ground-mounted arrays are especially popular for farms as they can benefit from the financial advantages that solar energy provides along with USDA grants. A key benefit for ground-mounted installations is that they can be placed in locations that receive maximum sun exposure which generates more energy and savings. Learn more about the benefits of ground mounts below.

  • Ideal Angle: Ground-mounted systems can be both placed wherever there is the maximum sun exposure on your property and built at the ideal tilt/angle to generate the most energy and give you the most savings all year round
  • Better Efficiency: Solar panels work best when kept cool and with ground-mounted systems, there is room below the panels to allow air to circulate freely around them which then allows them to perform at their peak efficiency levels
  • Ease of Maintenance: Keeping solar panels free from dust and dirt will allow for premium performance and with ground-mounted solar panels they can be cleaned and serviced without anyone having to climb on the roof
  • Future Expansion: There is usually no room to expand a rooftop mounted solar panel system once in place however a ground-mounted system can be expanded as much as you have room on your property.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“They installed a 10k system on my business and a 5k system on my home. Both installations went well and are producing roughly what Creative Solar predicted.”

- Sean Butler

“If you want to learn more and/ or are considering investing in residential, talk to folk who know what’s going on and who provide wonderful care and service. The Creative Solar team will help you understand what’s going on and find the best solution for you. I had a wonderful experience; great knowledge and personal care; no pressure at all; and support during what turned out (with some issues we encountered around a battery) to be an extended process. I can’t say enough good things!”

- Gareth Young

“Glad to say, my system has been installed and is on line and there hasn’t been a single day that my electric meter hasn’t run in reverse. So, in conclusion, I highly recommend Creative Solar for all the above reasons, based on my experience with them. And when I’m ready to add a Generac unit to my clean energy system, Creative Solar can expect to get yet another call, from me!”

- Eric Byas

“I participated in the Solarize Carrollton Campaign this past year. I felt comfortable that Creative Solar had been vetted by local engineers at Carroll EMC and Southwire. However, I was still pleasantly surprised at their professionalism, communication and attention to details. They asked me what I wanted, helped me understand the process, and gave an accurate estimate of the cost. I feel proud that I am helping the environment at a level that I could afford. I could not be more pleased with their work. My salesperson was Chaia Lewis. She was awesome, and if she didn’t know the answer, she found someone who did.”

- Gerald Word

“Creative Solar has installed our 4,75 KW Solar system in May 2019. They have excellent installation and service staff. My electricity bills are reduced as you can see here. I also like the Enlighten Solar dashboard that provides good Production and consumption information. Love my solar panels.”
