Soil Corrosivity and Solar Mounting Systems

Solar Mounting Systems

When designing a PV racking structure, it is important to determine how much soil corrosivity needs to be accounted for in order to ensure the life expectancy of the mounting structure. Several factors need to be measured on a site by site basis. Soil pH, moisture content, chlorides, and resistivity all determine the service life of hot-dipped galvanized steel piles embedded in the ground. If every variable is not taken into consideration during the design of solar mounting systems, then failure before the target service length is reached is a very real possibility.
