The purpose of a solar panel mount is to enable you to position your solar panel wherever you feel it would produce the most optimal results. They come in different shapes and sizes, rooftop solar panel mounts and ground panel mounts being the two most popular ones.

WHEN TO INSTALL GROUND MOUNTED SOLAR PANELS
In a situation where surrounding buildings cast a shade on a rooftop, or a roof is simply not big enough, ground solar mounts represent a more adequate solution. Ground solar mounts are also commonly used with larger solar panel systems or in remote areas, far from the city electric grid.
What many praise about ground mounted solar panels is the fact that they tend to be cooler than the roof mounted ones, thus slightly improving the production of voltage and energy.
