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.

At Zilla Corporation, making a difference in the world is a fundamental purpose we pursue each and every day. It is inherent in the industry that we thrive in. Helping to make solar affordable for everyone is working toward making the world a better place. But that is not the only way Zilla makes a difference.
Thanks to our customers, our success has allowed Zilla Corporation the opportunity to give back to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Our dedicated involvement with St. Jude’s assists in making a difference in children’s lives.
In December, Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and Georgia Tech Research Institute released their study on how to cut solar PV soft costs. The main finding in their classic time-and-motion studies illustrated that nearly 60% of a solar install is attributed to “soft costs”. Easy and simple solar mounting and racking equipment can help significantly cut down on those soft costs.
U.S. installers incur median installation costs of $0.49 per watt. But top-of-the-line U.S. installers can incur installation costs as low as $0.29 per watt. With racking and mounting making up 32% of the $0.49 median installation costs, it is also one of the biggest areas for improvement.
According to Cinnamon Solar CEO and veteran installer Barry Cinnamon, the key area for reducing solar racking and mounting soft costs requires “… eliminating the plethora of little nuts, bolts, wires, clips, pieces and parts that don’t add any functional value to the system, but still need to be assembled on the rooftop.”
Designed by installers for installers, Zilla solar mounting systems require minimal pieces and tools to ensure simple and easy installation, allowing you to complete more installations safely and in less time.
Another action item determined by RMI was the need to develop integrated racking systems in order to cut down on installation costs. The Zilla RacPac™ includes all of the solar racking and mounting equipment required for module attachment installations. For flush mount installations, simply add premier Zilla flashings and an L-foot to the Rac Pac.
The Zilla Ground Mount system includes a pre-fabricated truss system and easy to install helical piers that allow for rapid installation of modules with minimal field assembly, saving you time and money. By guaranteeing compatibility between components, the Zilla product line takes the guesswork out of racking installations, ultimately saving you time and project costs.
For many installation professionals, completing one-day installations is also imperative to cutting down on soft costs. Coordinating and managing a solar installation team is complicated and multiple partial day installs can be more costly than one-day installations. Zilla products allow your teams to complete some rooftop installations in one day and sometimes less than that. And when it comes to racing Mother Nature, Zilla often walks away victorious.
Cutting down on solar installation soft costs is essential for the continued growth of solar. Start cutting costs and improve your bottom line with the help of solar racking and mounting systems from Zilla.
We all know that selecting the right solar panel for your system is important. But arguably the most vital part of any solar system is the racking and mounting equipment. Reliable, durable and efficient solar racking equipment can dictate the lifespan of your system, while saving you time, money and headaches.
A group of solar experts based in California conducted a study of solar systems in order to determine best practices for solar racking and mounting. The team looked at 20 rooftop PV solar systems, which averaged 10 years old in San Francisco.
“In general, the reliable systems that were surveyed exhibited three common characteristics:they followed best installation practices at the time, used solar-specific components, and were installed by conscientious contractors,” noted in the report’s Executive Summary. Their study, “The Importance of Reliable Solar Mounting Systems”, uncovered a series of best practices that can ensure the reliability and cost effectiveness of residential rooftop PV systems.
Following these best practices can positively impact there liability and cost effectiveness of your system. The best (and simplest) way to ensure your system meets all of these requirements is to use an integrated solar mounting system.
Zilla® solar mounting and racking products, designed specifically by installers for installers, meet all of these best practices requirements. Zilla products meet a variety of testing standards and are made of rust-free stainless steel or aluminum material. We offer the most vertically integrated line of solar mounting products including best-in-class pitched roof, rail-less roof, ground mount and flat roof systems that are continuously being innovated to meet the needs of solar installers. With Zilla, all solar racking equipment is compatible eliminating mismatching of components and ensuring reliability and ease of installation.
Follow these best practices to ensure your customers enjoy clean, renewable, inexpensive electricity with minimal upkeep or maintenance costs. Get started with Zilla today and rest easy knowing your system will last for years.
