Top of pole ground-mount racking is recommended for most off grid systems to allow for seasonal adjustment of the solar panel tilt. Off-grid users typically have larger yard space to allow for ground mount solar systems. In some cases, roof mounts are still the most economical and effective option for off-grid users, and the additional power can sometimes instead be made up with the addition of one or two more solar panels. Increasing the slope of the solar panel racking to a near vertical tilt during the winter will allow for snow to shed itself from the array’s surface.
