When it comes to safe and efficient solar PV systems, having the proper balance of system (BOS) is critical. BOS includes components like the solar mounting system, solar inverters, and wiring. Choosing the right location for posts and other BOS parts can help save time, increase installation efficiency, and reduce the overall cost of your PV system.
Because engineering requirements restrict trenching and excavation within 3 feet of a structural post without the proper replacement and compaction of original soil material, RBI Solar offers multiple options for mounting inverters and BOS components that alleviate this concern.
RBI Solar mounting solutions protect the structural integrity of racking foundations while saving trenching time by eliminating the need to compact the backfill. These solutions utilize factory-fabricated inverter-specific mounting holes that increase installation efficiency and ultimately reduce labor costs. Not only do RBI Solar mounting solutions maximize inverter placement locations, they work to protect the structural integrity of solar racking foundations.
With this option, the auxiliary post is installed at a customer-specified distance in-line with a structural post with strut spanning between them.
This option allows the auxiliary post to be installed at customer-specified locations behind the solar mounting system.
RBI Solar’s longer structural post option is a deeper post embedment on specified posts allows for trenching of inverter raceways.
