Brief scrutiny of Guatemala’s budding solar market

Guatemala is the second-largest power market in Central America. The country’s overall energy capacity is quite impressive. Nonetheless, the government of Guatemala has been working on improving installed solar capacity.

As of 2017, the Central American nation had a total installed solar capacity of 99 Megawatts. This was a massive achievement for the country, considering that in 2010, its total installed capacity was only 1 Megawatt.  There are no recent statistics concerning Guatemala’s solar capacity in 2021. However, studies show that the solar market has continued to grow steadily.

Currently, most people residing in Guatemala’s rural areas use rooftop photovoltaic panels to power their homes. Off-grid solar projects, especially those in rural Guatemala, enjoy lots of support from non-profit organizations and institutions. If this support continues to grow, solar installers and other photovoltaic professionals should expect limitless opportunities in Guatemala’s budding solar market.

Guatemala’s solar equipment manufacturing and supply capacity

There are several local and foreign solar equipment manufacturers and suppliers serving the Guatemalan solar market. Solar panels and batteries are the most common equipment available in this nascent solar market. Still, you don’t necessarily have to move from place to place requesting quotes if you need a solar equipment supplier.

Solarfeeds.com, home to several leading equipment suppliers that serve the Guatemalan market, offers a convenient alternative. Just go to our inquiry page and request quotes. We will get back to you with exciting quotes faster than you can imagine.

Ports and logistics in Guatemala  

 Guatemala boasts of a total of 5 ports located on the Pacific and the Atlantic sides. Apart from that, it is endowed with good transport infrastructure. Fundamentally, the country has everything you need if you decide to import solar equipment from established overseas markets.

Ground Mount Systems for Solar

When you install a solar panel system at home or your working space, you have different mounting ways to choose from. Although you observe that most residential and commercial properties have solar panels installed on their rooftop, that’s not the only means. Besides, that is the only traditional way of placing your solar panels. There are several ways to place and install your solar power systems. Among the methods of installing solar panel systems, the ground mount system is the most common one.

In today’s article, we will explain what a ground mount system is, its cost, benefits, and other important things you should know about it.

What is a Solar Ground Mount System?

Let’s simply put it in a simpler way. From the words “ground” and “mount” a ground mount solar power system is a way of mounting or installing your solar panel system on the ground or any large field near your property rather than installing them at your property’s roof. This type of ground mount system is a good alternative solar solution if you don’t want to place it on top of your house. As long as you have a large yard or field near your place and there is abundant sunlight in your area you can easily have your solar panels installed. Usually, the panels are placed anywhere from a few inches to a few feet off the ground, depending on how your installers set up the racking system.

Types of Ground Mount Systems

The ground-mounted solar system has two main types: standard ground mount and pole mount. The standard one is the same as the pole-mounted ones, the only difference is it is not elevated on poles but rather directly installed on the ground using ground anchors to hold up a racking table. 

A standard mount system is also easier to install as it typically holds the solar array in a fixed position on the ground. Besides, it is a more cost-effective solution for a ground install compared to a pole mount system that usually has tracking systems, resulting in a higher cost per watt. 

Meanwhile, a pole-mounted system acts as a support system to the ground-mounted panels. Since they are elevated on poles, they can easily get maximum sun absorption. Not to mention that they have a monitoring option that allows the solar panels to angle with the sun’s direction.

What Properties are Applicable for Ground Mount Systems?

You can get your solar panels mounted on the ground for your residential or commercial properties as long as you have an open space to place them. Typically, for a residential home, you will need 60-cell solar panels, same with the solar panel size used in residential roof solar installations. Solar farms and bigger facilities are also applicable for ground-mounted solar installations. These properties need larger-scale ground-mounted systems, usually 72-cell solar panels to power the entire building. In this case, a wider field or ground space is needed to install the solar power system. 

How Much Does it Cost to Get a Ground-Mounted Solar System?

When it comes to residential and commercial/agricultural properties, there will be a significant difference between the cost of ground-mounted solar panels installation before and after applying incentives. To give you an estimated cost, the average residential property can expect to pay between $23,000 and $46,000+ to get a ground-mounted solar system, but prices still vary depending on the size of solar panels. Whereas, commercial and industrial properties can expect to pay $66,000 to $200,000+ to install a ground-mounted solar system.
