Zilla ground mount solar racking systems can also be used in caisson, slab or ballast variety depending on your job requirements.
When you think of solar, most people think of rooftop solar. And while rooftop solar is a large portion of solar installations in the U.S., ground-mount installations have been seeing a significant increase in installations. Data from NPD Solarbuzz, North America PV Markets Quarterly shows that “ground-mount installations have outpaced building-mount by a significant margin in all but a few quarters.”
The ground mount segment is seeing continued growth due to development of large-scale utility projects. Ground mount installations allow for more flexibility in the field, finding the optimal angle and orientation of peak energy production. There is also increased airflow, allowing the panels to cool, further increasing panel performance. Ground mount arrays can be continually expanded to necessitate increased energy production.
Zilla can help you make your ground mount installations easier than ever, contributing to the nationwide ground mount growth. Our pre-fabricated trusses simplify the staging and installation process. Zilla Helical Piers set in just one minute, allowing staging and installing 23+ helicals in one man-hour. Zilla’s easy to install approach to solar allows installers to complete more installations in less time with less effort.

This year, a few members of Team Zilla® participated in the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series in Nashville. As part of Zilla’s on-going support for St. Jude’s Children’s hospital, both Zilla President, Lori Beedon and Zilla COO, Kayla Kruetzman raised money for and participated in this year’s event.
This event combines three of Team Zilla’s favorite things: outdoor activities, philanthropy and fun! Kayla’s favorite part of the race was seeing hundreds of people come together to support the kids and families at St. Jude’s.
This aspect of the event is also important to Lori who says,“I love the part of the run when you think you can hardly take another step and someone with a disability runs past me! I totally get a new lease on life and continue to push through! All the while, everyone is running for the sake of the kids at St Jude’s!”
But don’t forget the fun! Both Kayla and Lori had a great time meeting and chatting with the other runners, enjoying the live music and bands and of course, relaxing post race with a frothy Bushwhaker (think frosty meets alcohol).
This is one of Team Zilla’s favorite philanthropy events and we are already looking forward to next year!

Zilla has developed a revolutionary, fully-flashed, rail-less PV mounting system with integrated grounding that can be installed directly to roof sheathing for faster and more aesthetically pleasing installations. The first fully-flashed, rail-less system makes rooftop installations safer, simpler and more affordable.
The rail-less Phantom™ is designed for maximum economy and efficiency. Without long and cumbersome rails, the Phantom ships in conveniently-sized packages making it easy to handle and transport to your project. The Zilla® Top Clip is a key component on the Phantom and is UL 467 listed for module-to-module grounding, using less equipment for your install.
The Phantom allows for module layout in either landscape or portrait orientation and even a combination of both. The Phantom is highly adaptable – easily add or move modules within your array to avoid rooftop obstacles. Although the Phantom is ideal for asphalt roofs, it can also be customized for installations on SIPS, concrete, metal and tile roofs.
Speed of installation is an important aspect of all Zilla products. With the Phantom, the lightweight, minimal parts allow for one-man installation without rafters, purlins or the need to pre-drill. With minimal tools and training, the Phantom will allow you to be more efficient with your installations allowing you to generate greater revenue.
The Phantom builds on the popular Zilla Double Stud flashing, offering a completely watertight rooftop installation. The Phantom allows PV modules to be mounted anywhere on the roof, not just on roof joists. The Phantom is aesthetically pleasing, only extending 1.5 inches off the roof.
Designed to work with standard framed modules at least 1-3/8” (35mm) up to 2-1/8” (54mm), the Phantom simplifies the entire installation process. To find out for yourself how simple Zilla products are, check out the Phantom product page. It's so simple, it's scary!
