Tech Q&A: Mounting Renogy Panels
By Stephen Clifton
Solar panels are used in many different applications and making sure that the panels are mounted properly is necessary for your system and for your safety. There are a couple of different options for mounting Renogy Solar Panels that vary depending on the size of your panels and the installation application. We offer four different types of mounting options: Tilt Mount, Roof Mount Rail, Pole Mount, and Z Brackets.
- The Renogy Tilt Mount will support various mounting applications but will most commonly be off-grid. It is suitable for most Renogy panels and can be mounted on any flat surface. This mount is designed to allow some adjustment of the panel’s angle for optimum performance. The angle adjustability is dependent on the panels themselves where bigger panel sizes decreasing angle adjustability.
- The Renogy Rail Mount System is designed to support both off-grid and grid-tied solar photovoltaic systems and is compatible with all Renogy panel size. The system contains multiple components which will vary depending on an installation’s needs. A typical system will be comprised of the rail units themselves coupled with Splice Kits, L-Feet, End Clamps, and Mid Clamps as well as required fasteners to secure all components together. This product makes the installation of long, continuous rows of panels easy. This system is designed for use on flat, rigid surfaces to ensure system stability.
- The Renogy Pole Mount System is designed for off-grid applications when mounting to a roof is not ideal. It will support panels up to 100W. The mounting system comes complete with all fasteners to secure to the installation surface. This system makes the installation of small solar systems easy, affordable, and quick. This mounting system does not include the Pole.
- The Renogy Z-Bracket Mount System is designed to support the installation of single panel units, generally in off-grid installations. These units are ideal for installation on RV roofs and noninhibited dwellings such as sheds or garages. It is also suited for attachment to a user made structure such as a wooden frame. The system comes complete with all fasteners to secure the system to the installation surface.
We always recommend to read all instructions and cautions in your installation manual before beginning and to have any installation method completed by a professional contractor to avoid damages that may occur due to improper sealing.
