However, the solar racking undergirding your PV system is still very important. This is true no matter where you live. But the panel mounting technology you choose is especially important in a region like Florida that:
- Frequently receives hurricane-strength winds of 150+ mph.
- Has moist, salty air that can corrode many building materials.
Another important consideration is installation ease.
As a homeowner, you won’t personally be installing any solar racking yourself. But the longer it takes for a contractor to “mount” your panels, the more expensive the entire job becomes.
So in addition to durability and weatherproofing, you want a racking system that installs quickly. This helps to keep your costs down. And it also allows you to begin saving money from your PV panels even sooner.
