Solar energy is used by several people as it is environmentally friendly, and thus it helps to reduce the monthly electricity bills. But, people have an issue that solar panels cannot be transported when they are mounted. So, in today’s article, we will learn how to make a movable solar mounting rack. Let us begin.
After having a look at our today’s agenda now, let us go through with the supplies that are required to make a movable solar mounting rack. They are as follows:
- Star Knobs
- Flange Knobs
- Solar Panels
- Solar Panel Stand Legs
Steps To Make A Movable Solar Mounting Rack
Step 1: The first step is to take the Solar Panel Stand Legs, adjust them and then connect the last holes with the help of Star Knobs.
Fixing and Adjusting the Solar Panel Legs
Step 2: Once you attach them in the second step, you should extend the panel stand legs and check.
Testing the Solar Panel Legs
Step 3: The third step is to take a cross beam and fix it anywhere using Star Knob and bolts.
Fixing the Cross Beam
Step 4: The following step is to repeat all the steps mentioned above for the second side and then connect or assemble all the pieces.
Assembling all the Pieces
Step 5: Start attaching the solar panels to the stand using star knobs and flange nuts.
Attaching the Solar Panels
Step 6: The last step is to place the solar mounting rack in the sunlight.
Placing the Movable Solar Mounting Rack in Sunlight
- We recommend you use a sharpie and mark the holes with numberings
- Use flexible solar panels
Things To Remember
- Make sure you fix the bolts and star knobs on the borders of the solar panels.
- Ensure that you should not damage the solar panel.
