SAN MATEO, Calif. - Ready Solar has announced the availability of a ground mount accessory for its fully pre-assembled Solar in a Box™ photovoltaic systems. The ground mount accessory bolts onto the standard Solar in a Box frame. According to the company, this product development continues its mission of broadening the solar installation network by providing the industry’s easiest to install solar electric systems.

“Our product team did an excellent job of listening to customer input and then creating a very simple and effective addition to our product line,” said Bob Giles, CEO. “No factory modification is required to the Solar in a Box frame. This is consistent with our goal of providing a standardized yet flexible product that is very easy for contractors to order and install.”

Duane Davis, chief technology officer, added, “The design allows the ground mount assembly to simply bolt on to our Solar in a Box frame in a manner similar to our roof mount kits. By making use of the strength the frame, we were able to minimize additional materials and provide a very cost effective solution.”

The ground mount follows on Ready Solar’s development of mounting systems for composition shingle, tile, and metal roofs for its pre-assembled Solar in a Box system. According to Ready Solar, the Solar in a Box product installs in 1/3 to 1/2 the time of traditional solar installations.
