Design Considerations

When working with a precast concrete solar panel base installation, there are several design elements to consider, including:

  • Tracking characteristics and the tilt angle of the panels;
  • Support/racking configuration;
  • Local design wind speed;
  • Any local design codes;
  • Condition of the ground/soil underneath the ballasts; and
  • The size and weight of the solar panel system.
