||A ground mount which is an exception to the rule for residential sites. After some
strategy changes regarding a house rebuild on the ’existing’ house site and NJCEP policy changes requiring
an original 16 KW multi facet array roof configuration to change-order to under 10KW, the ground mount
was the solution.
||Ground mounts add costs to solar PV systems due to the structure required. However, in this case
there originally were 3 separate roofs with 3 different azimuth and pitch angles. The added cost for the ground
structure was virtually eliminated by improved solar production since this structure could be set at the optimal
180 degree south azimuth at optimal pitch; multiple facet rooftops often do not allow this flexibility.
||Design submitted to State by R. Barbarics for original configuration taken directly from architect’s
drawings and then change-ordered to 10 KW as a ground mount for rebate compliance. Array consists of multi-junction
