Whether you’re looking to install your solar panels on the ground, a fence post, or the roof of your home or RV, there’s a sturdy mount designed for you. A well-built model will hold up to the elements and can be tilted to optimal angles. Here we rank the best choices for durability, ease of assembly, and price.

Editor's Notes

January 07, 2021:

We eliminated the Renogy Multi-Panel, due to availability issues, and beefed our list up with three new additions: The Nepowa Single Arm — a pole-mount option that’s available in six sizes; the Eco-Worth Off Grid — a tilt model that can accommodate up to 300-watt hardware; and the Wasserstein Gutter Mount — which won’t do you much good if you’re trying to power an entire premises, but it’s a smart choice for users looking to implement a constant-power solution for their outdoor Wi-Fi cameras.

Note that, while many companies will try to describe their mounts’ capacities by stating a maximum panel wattage, what compatibility really comes down to on these things is physical size. So, if you know which 100-watt solar panel you’re planning to install on this bracket, don’t be satisfied to assume that it will fit on any bracket that says it can handle 100-watt equipment (realistically, it probably will, but just to be safe), do your due diligence and compare its dimensions against the bracket’s maximum dimensions, and make sure that the latter isn’t lesser.

When you’re in the market for a solar panel mount, one of the most important factors to consider is where exactly you want to place it. For one that can be installed in the ground, it’s hard to go wrong with the Renogy Multi-Panel, which is ideal for those who want to put multiple panels in a neat row. If you prefer to keep your modules on your roof, the WindyNation Adjustable or Renogy Tilt are viable options that can be adjusted easily to optimal angles.

If you’d rather not create holes, consider the Renogy Drill-Free, which sticks to flat surfaces with adhesive and can accommodate modules of virtually any size. No matter which you ultimately pick, make sure it’s rust-resistant and can hold the size of your panel. For installation of your solar system, you’ll want to find a knowledgeable contractor you can trust, who understands local policies and regulations.
