Ground mount solar arrays are an ideal option if you have ample space and want the flexibility of positioning your solar array to capture as much sun as possible.


While most solar installations are found on roofs, free-standing, there are many reasons to consider ground mounted solar panels. For one thing, ground mounted solar panels can be placed so that they face south, and can be angled to absorb the maximum amount of sunlight. If your home uses a lot of electricity, a roof mounted system may not be big enough to meet your needs. In that case a ground mounted system can be sized to match your electricity consumption without the space restrictions of a roof mounted system.

Solar panels that are installed at the ground level function very similarly to rooftop solar systems – panels are exposed to sunlight which is converted to electricity by solar cells in order to power a home or business.

  • Standard ground-mounts

    Standard ground-mounts use metal framing driven into the ground to hold solar panels up at a fixed angle. In some cases, standard ground-mounted solar panel systems can be manually adjusted during the year to account for seasonal shifts of the sun.

  • Pole-mounted solar systems

    Pole-mounted solar systems support multiple solar panels on a single pole and elevate panels higher off the ground than a standard ground mount. Pole-mounted solar systems often incorporate a tracking system (either single axis or dual axis) that automatically tilts the solar panels to capture the optimal amount of sunshine. This can increase the production of your solar panels by 25 percent or more.

    Bone Dry Solar’s expert solar installers can help you decide whether ground mounted solar panels are the best option to maximize the performance and value of your solar installation.

Frequently asked questions about solar

Yes, the Federal Tax Credit increased to 30%. This means you will receive 30% of the total system cost back as a tax credit. An additional 10% can be added to the tax credit if they qualify for the domestically sourced goods portion of the bill. This applies to both commercial and residential and lasts until 2032.
Yes, we offer financing options for any budget. Speak to your Bone Dry Solar representative for more information.
Well-installed solar panels should never cause a roof leak. Engineers consider structural soundness and roof integrity when proposing, designing, and installing an array. Solar products are warrantied as is our work. Leaks should not be an issue as long as the panels are installed correctly.
Bone Dry Solar offers a 10 Year Workmanship Warranty to our customers. Additionally, most inverters have a 10 year warranty (with the option to upgrade to a 25 year warranty), and panels and racking systems typically carry a 25 year warranty. Ask your Bone Dry Solar representative for more information.
Yes, we are able to install ground and roof mount arrays for commercial properties like warehouses, schools, manufacturing facilities, etc.
Solar panels do work on cloudy days, just not as effectively as they would on a sunny day. Expect them to produce 10-25% of their normal power output, depending on the thickness of cloud cover.
No. Net metering went away July 1, 2022. Although some utilities still offer a type of net metering or net billing, the 1 for 1 payback is no longer active. Bone Dry Solar will not sell a system producing more than 100%.

In 2022, the Indiana state legislature passed a law to protect the property rights of Hoosiers who want to go solar. The law provides a clear path for homeowners in restrictive HOAs to get approval from their neighbors to install solar panels.

House Enrolled Act 1196 (or HEA 1196) protects anyone living in an HOA whose contract “prohibits, restricts, or limits the installation of solar energy systems by homeowners association members” or has unreasonably been denied a request to install solar panels. They can go through a two-step process to have their solar panels approved and then installed on their home.

If your HOA doesn’t prevent solar installations, nothing has changed for you. However, if you find yourself running up against prohibitions or restrictions on solar installations, this new law is for you! You can discuss this further with your Bone Dry Solar representative.
