What Does a Dual-Axis Solar System Installation Require?

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on April 26, 2017

One of the keys to success when growing a business, in the solar industry or otherwise, is watching for opportunities and new markets. While most solar dealers are already offering roof-mount solar, fixed ground-mount solar, or a combination of the two, you may find that you need to add a new product to your offerings, such as a dual-axis tracker, to differentiate your business or to meet customer demand

If you've been focused on fixed solar, moving towards tracking systems might seem intimidating. Luckily, these technologies are generally designed to have a simple, straightforward installation process that can take as little as one day! Read on to find out what a dual-axis solar system requires.

Solar Tracker Installation Tips: Panel Installation & Chain Fall Safety

Posted by Dick Hopwood on April 12, 2017

Last month, I ended Hint #4 by discussing options for securing the frame to the mast after landing it onto the can. Most of the time, the AER installation crew secures the frame to the mast and then breaks for lunch. Logistically we sometimes use this time to have someone install the load center onto the mast and wire the SO cables to the breakers. If the underground AC run from the grid has been installed, completing this wiring can also occur now if time permits. This allows the panel installation to be completed and the tracker is immediately ready to power up. As I always say, remember, your objective is to install an AllEarth tracker in one day!

Solar Tracker Installation Tips: Landing the Frame & Rail Assembly

If you have planned appropriately, you will want to finish the frame/rail assembly just prior to finishing the mast/can installation. Once the machine lands the can it can immediately hook up to the frame assembly. The slings should be ready to go as part of the frame build.

Solar Tracker Installation Tips: Mast and Can Installation

Posted by Dick Hopwood on February 1, 2017

The New Year is upon us and with it comes Tracker Tip #3. In the last Tracker Tip I discussed building the frame efficiently. The frame assembly is ready to be lifted onto the can, but you have not installed the mast and can yet. One thing we emphasize on our team is efficient use of manpower. Remember that our objective is to install an AllEarth Solar Tracker in one day, so the different phases of the installation process work best if you divide and conquer when needed. The mast and can installation is an example of this.

Can You Install Solar Panels on North-Facing Roofs?

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on December 9, 2016


If you have a north-facing roof, you might think that solar just isn't going to work for your property. Even though it's true that north-facing roofs aren't ideal for solar, you still have options: while you will have some challenges to work around, there are several alternatives available that will let you go solar despite having a non-optimal roof.
