Ground mounted solar systems are much less common than rooftop and are mainly used in the larger Utility, C&I sectors of the market, although rural or outer urban based Small Businesses can sometimes benefit from a ground mounted system. Often, a customers roof may not be suitable for a rooftop installation and they have adjacent land that is being underused, if at all.
