1. Ground Mounted Solar Arrays for Remote Locations

Ground based systems are used in larger power applications ranging from 640 watts to 10+ kilowatts. These ground mounted solar systems include common applications like air monitoring sampling equipment, tower obstruction lighting, cellular microwave repeaters, mountaintop communications and high wind areas such as tropical islands and deserts. Often the solar array is used to shade the battery enclosure, reducing heat gain.

2. Side of Utility/Telecom Tower Solar Support Design

These systems range from 160 watts to several kilowatts. These tower mounted solar systems are intended to power LED obstruction lights, aircraft warning and MET tower obstruction LED lighting. These are also used on radio telecommunication towers.

3. Dual Vertical Pole with Crossarm Solar Mounting Design for Remote Sites

This pole-mounted solar system design method is used to elevate the solar array when there is snow drift accumulation. Smaller systems use 4"-6" Schedule 40 steel pipe. Larger systems typically use utility telephone poles.

Typical applications are microwave repeaters, cellular repeaters, tower obstruction lighting and microwave relay stations.
