    This is wonderful information and thank you Kelly. I’m curious, I have a 6 acre parcel in Northern California, am going to be building in 2-3 months, I am looking to determine where on the land would I place solar as I don’t want it on the house. Do you have a site or program you would recommend to help with placement, angle, etc? Thank you for your support.

    I need information on how to install a 2 axis solar panel mast other than simply digging a deep, wide hole and filling it with concrete. Ideas included multiple footings tied together and supporting one central pole. Another might be a star-shaped footing that is shallow rather than deep. Please help.
