PV Anchoring - How it Works

The innovative ‘flip’ of the PV Solar Anchor creates a truncated cone of consolidated soil to allow it to overcome upwards, lateral and turning forces, meaning that the foundation design can be simplified to control the remaining downwards forces.

As the foundations require less material, reducing transportation costs, and no heavy installation machinery, the project’s carbon footprint is significantly reduced.

The Photovoltaic Anchoring Kit uses the engineering properties of the different soils to create a safe, reliable foundation.
