Ballasted Ground Mounted System

Sustainable Technologies is an experienced ground-mounted solar PV designer and installer in Northern California. We have been named Top 500 Contractors by Solar Power World. When space is available ground mounted systems are easier to install than on an existing building. Carports have fewer interruptions than existing facilities and easier to permit.

Ground mounted solar systems are installed using various applications. For large systems, beams can be driven into the ground. Non-penetration ballasts are available for particular sites. Carports are built with large footings from the ground up to cover your parking lots.

Carports take advantage of a large parking area to produce electricity while providing covered parking. We have various options to meet your dimensions. We utilize a carport racking system that uses fewer footings for the number of panels.

​Our solar ballasted cast-in-place system is a cost saving for unique site conditions. Our ballasted systems are ideal for solar landfills, rocky soil conditions, corrosive soils or high water tables sites. This is a viable alternative to driven or screwed foundations where the cost of refusal can be expensive or direct push is not an option. The SolWay GM2 Ballasted PV Ground Mount was developed with Brittmore Group ( and Sustainable Technologies. The SolWay GM2 requires the least amount of ballasts per MW and has the widest span per ballast while maximizing the number of solar panels.

Sustainable Technologies is capable of performing all facets of your project. With 20 years of experience in environmental construction and solar contracting, we’ll handle permitting, electrical drawings design and engineering. Our staff can provide a cost-saving turn-key solution for your renewable energy project.
