What is Solar Energy in Italy?

The solar energy in Italy has seen a major surge in this industry among other European countries such as Germany, Turkey, Spain, and the Netherlands.

In July 2005, the country started its first “Conto Energia” program to support the development of renewable power, and the result so far has been remarkable. In 2018, Italy added solar PV capacity of 437 MW, and its PV market grew by 7%.

The major driving factor in the Italian PV market has been solar rooftops, and the number of solar installation projects with more than 1 MW capacity increased in in 2017 and 2018.

Italy is considered the country of sunshine which makes the nation very favourable for the installations of solar energy production plants and farms. In Central-Southern Italy, the annual solar radiation can range from 4.7 kWh per square metre per day, and 5.4 kWh per square metre per day in Sicily. While the other regions also have a very high solar energy production potential making Italy one of the leading countries for the production of solar energy, as well as in the sector of research and technological innovation.

The solar energy in Italy has seen a major surge in this industry among other European countries such as Germany, Turkey, Spain, and the Netherlands. Italy’s PV market is known as one of the photovoltaic markets that definitely deserve a place in the solar energy spotlight. In fact, during the first ten years of the new millennium, Italy was on the third spot after Germany and Spain to experience a significant boom in solar installations after encouraging the citizen through government incentives. This made most of the manufacturers and citizens embrace and support solar power.

In 2010, The Montalto di Castro Photovoltaic Power Station was completed and it is considered the largest photovoltaic power station in Italy with 85 MW solar capacity. Along with this largest PV power station, there are also other large PV plants like Cellino San Marco with 42.7 MW capacity, San Bellino with 70.6 MW capacity, and Sant’ Alberto with solar capacity of 34.6 MW.

Aside from conventional solar PV technology, Italy is also known for its developing concentrated solar power (CSP) technology. To function efficiently, this concentrated solar technology requires higher direct solar irradiation, which makes the country suitable for this technique as Italy has more exposure to sunlight. Furthermore, the southern regions including the islands of Sardinia and Sicily also offer good conditions for CSP technology, the reason why the Italian government provided large investments to promote this solar power development.

Currently, there are three solar plants running in the country. The first one is the Archimede solar plant, which was installed on the island of Sicily in 2010, attaining a solar capacity of 5 MW. Moreover, planning and promotion for the CSP technology will undergo several additional projects which would add another solar capacity of 360 MW, annually.

As of now, Italy for being known as “sunshine-blessed” country is currently the second-largest market in Europe in terms of installed solar power generation capacity. Which then, achieved over 20 GW of photovoltaic (PV) power plants in 2018. This year, the Italian solar power market is expected to enter a new series of growth, particularly investing in “grid parity” projects that mostly rely on corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs).

Roof Attachments

Roof Attachments

One of the major components of a solar panel system is the solar racking system or mount system. It is the foundation that holds your solar panels in place. Typically, they are used to attach solar PV modules to your property’s roof, open ground, or another flat surface near your property. When installing a solar panel system, proper installation should be observed to make a sturdy racking system. If you want to secure your PV panels and allow them to withstand the harsh weather and outside elements, choosing the right mounting products is needed. 

You should also note that solar panel racking equipment is built with 3 main components, they are roof attachments, module clamps, and mounting rails. But for today’s article, we will highlight the roof attachment and its types.

What are Roof Attachments?

From the word itself “attachment”, the roof attachments act as the fasteners that hold the racking system in place and fix it to your roof.  Usually, your solar installer will drill it into your roof securing the solar mounting system in place. The holes created by these drills will be complemented by ‘flashing’, which is either a plastic or metal shield. The flashing will be inserted between the roof shingles, preventing water leakages from escaping into the holes. 

However, not all roof attachments are suited to all types of roofs. Note that each type of roof (clay tile roofs, metal roofs, and flat surface roofs) also has a different roof attachment.

Types of Roof Attachments

  • Tile Mounting System

This type of roof attachment system is designed to be used on new or existing tile pitched roofs using a structural method. It is commonly available in Flat, S, and W-shaped retro tile profiles. Usually, it replaces one complete roof tile, instead of drilling, cutting, or grinding the roof tiles. It requires multiple fastener holes in the base plate to attach the solar array into the roof rafter regardless of the flashing alignment. 

  • Conduit Mounting System

The Conduit Mount Tile bracket directly hooks onto the tile to lift the electrical conduit off the roof surface. This kind of mounting system prevents the wiring from overheating. The roof attachment is usually compatible with Flat, S, and W-shaped tiles. Like the tile mounting system, it does not require drilling or grinding the tile. 

  • Tile Hook Flashing

This roof attachment system is a stand-alone flashing that can be used with other third-party tile hooks. The flashing acts as a replacement to a complete tile, so there will be no cutting, drilling, or grinding of tiles needed. The flashing is available in three shapes that usually fit the most pitched roof slope tile profiles.

  • CorruSlide

CorruSlide is designed to fit nearly any pitched slope corrugated metal roof profile. It uses an adjustable hinged mount that will be attached to the sides of the panel ridges, preventing water leakage from low roof areas. 

  • SimpleSeal

SimpleSeal is engineered for solar installation on most pitched metal roofs. The roof attachment system has a cone-shaped EPDM rubber bushing that is ideal for the countersink of any compression bracket. The SimpleSeal bushing is compressed inside the bracket, fastened to the roof, and creates a watertight seal.

Key Takeaways

Not all roof attachment systems are ideal for all types of roof materials and structures. Some fit the sloping roof, others don’t. You also have to consider your roof type, if it is a comp shingle, corrugated metal, tile, membrane rolled comp, standing seam metal, etc., as it can affect the overall performance and durability of your solar racking system.
