Hi all,

Im new to this group and about to take shippment of 24 175w PV
pannels.
Im now trying to figure out if i should buy one of the ready  made
panel rack systems or try building one myself out of uni strut.
'My roof is low and a 30' so i dont mind workingup there. The panels
wont do anything funkie but sit a couple of inches off of the roof.

If i do go with a pre made rack system recomendations are welcome


thanks,
chris

It would be a shame if you lost or damaged your investment
in PV modules by saving a minor amount on structure.
Unistrut and related parts are not low cost.  Also pay
attention to how you attached to the roof, I have seen snow
loads cause a PV array to rip off a roof.

Any product of Zomeworks in Albuquerque will be good.  They make both fixed
and tracking mounts, wind-prove them on top of 12,000ft. Sandia Mtn.  Been in
the solar business since its beginning.  www.zomeworks.com    800-279-6342

 Check Unirack out. Build one yourself if you have time!
