Solar Panel Mount

THE MISSION

Develop a low-cost solar panel mount for rural areas

Research helped us know we could rely on electricity poles to mount the rural solar solution.

The design had to fit solar panels of all sizes and adjust on site.

The angle of the solar panel adjusted to accommodate location.

We started in sketch, moved into CAD, and delivered a working prototype.

Because we used one type of bolt throughout the design, when the design was to be installed, the user only needed one tool.

Our material choices were galvanised mild steel which is readily available in rural areas.

We produced a prototype to test our assumptions which we installed onto a pole.

With a few small tweaks we had a sturdy, easy to setup solution.
