Ground-mounted solar systems are not just an option for massive solar farms. These systems can also be an option for those who’d like to get solar but may find – for a variety of reasons – that a rooftop solar system would not be suitable for them. There’s a number of key aspects to consider before deciding on a favorite between rooftop and ground-mounted solar – so let’s unpack them now.
FIMER, a global leader in solar inverter technology, was selected as a solar module provider of choice for the first two of five mid-large scale solar farms in regional South Australia. The solar farms, led by Yates Electrical Services Group (YES Group) and Sustainable Energy Infrastructure, will deliver approximately 20 MW of electricity generation to the SA grid that will power around 5,000 homes.
