MaX™ Ground Mount Solution
The MaX™ Ground Mount Solution is Kern Solar Structures' answer to the growing demand for faster turn around times on utility scale projects. With the MaX™ Ground Mount you get the speed of a pre-engineered and pre-configured modular design coupled with a high quality, high strength product designed to outlast even the highest quality Tier 1 PV Modules. This is a combination not typically seen in today's solar industry.
This product line was developed with both large and small installers in mind, featuring a range of sizes and standard components to accommodate a wide range of PV Modules.
This system is widely versatile, and is designed to be applicable to almost every utility solar installation.
The MaX™ utility solution features a flexible design to accomodate a wide range of modules featuring an innovative shared rail system, Solar Speed RaX™. Designed for utility and medium to large solar ground mount installations, this structure reduces the cost, time, and hardware used during installation.
Pre-Configured and Pre-Engineered
In order to cut down on project development time cycles the Max™ Ground Mount has been both pre-configured and pre-engineered.
Available in table sizes of 18, 36, 54, 72, and 90 modules, the Max™ Ground Mount easily scales to meet the size requirements and power generation expectations for each project.
Each of these kits come with a complete engineering package and a memo of application specific to the installation site. These packages can be generated in as little as one day after purchase of the system.
By using pre-configured tables the layout and design process of a project is greatly reduced. This in turn reduces soft costs of a project and can increase project profitability for the developer.
If initial site layout assistance is required please contact a Kern Solar Structures representative for more info and assistance.
Dimensions, acceptable environmental conditions, and compatible module spec's are available on the MaX™ Ground Mount downloadable sheet.
Standard table sizes available now!
These tables are currently in stock and available for immediate purchase.
Standard tables range in a variety of sizes with adjustments of 18 modules, maxing out at a 90 module table.
These tables can be strung together for larger installations and can be mirrored and laid out to minimize the amount of electrical wiring required, further reducing installation times.
These kits accommodate most quality inverters and electrical components.

Custom GroundMount™ Designs
Kern Solar Structures is aware that a pre-configured layout does not always fit the needs of every project. For this reason, custom designs and layouts are available. These designs are still based on the familiar MaX™ solution, but can be adjusted to fit specific criteria required. Custom designs are not pre-engineered and do not benefit from shorter design and permitting cycles.
Variations in system designs can include custom table sizes, and custom pile types and dimensions.
Custom systems can be designed to withstand higher wind and snow loads, as well as a wide range of soil conditions. These systems are also ASCE/SEI 7-05 and 7-10 Certified.
To inquire about custom designs contact a Kern Solar Structures representative or request a quote.
