Re: software for designing ground mount system
Well, in my limited experience, the UniRac site seems to change every day or two. I did note that they mentioned that their SolarMount system can be used for Ground Mounts, but Their design tool seems to do Roofs only.
Regarding your Footer thread, you might be able to find a PE that could design a rack system for you that would do everything that you need, and perhaps it could be fabricated locally etc, altho, it is a bit of a gamble.
I looked at designing my own rack system, but really wanted it to endure our 100 MPH max winds. Finally went with UniRac, as I found it easier to deal with vs shopping around for the correct PE. Uni seems very expensive, tho. But is is an integrated system.
You might contact UniRac directly by phone, and ask them about ground mount design tools. Have been waiting weeks for a reply to a simple question that I e-mailed them.
Nice large array you are planning, Good Luck, Vic
