Abstract

Small, residential solar power can be part of the solution to the energy crisis. However, there are very few options for a homeowner to purchase household solar mounting systems. To meet this need, a single solar panel ground mounting system has been designed that is functional, economical and easy to install. The design includes a base with a detachable center square pole and an angle adjuster allowing residential use throughout the US. The retail price is less than $1,500 and has easy to follow instructions for installation.
