The foundation system of the Solar Agricultural Element enables high electricity production by solar fences with a low and careful use of materials. Photovoltaic panels on agricultural land have a high potential to drive the energy transition.
The universal mounting system can be easily adapted in design to the PV panels used. Thanks to the better foundation, higher photovoltaic fences are possible, which offer more yield and thus an earlier refinancing of the system.
Easy installation of the foundation system
The earth screw is screwed deep into the solid soil layer after drilling an earth hole. Then the shear-compression-bending-plate can be inserted. Finally, the pole is installed, to which the solar modules of various manufacturers can be directly attached.
Tree root principle for higher loads
In order to safely install photovoltaic fences on open areas, conventional foundations require a high amount of concrete to be placed in the ground. The paXos foundation system, on the other hand, uses the tree root principle, which requires significantly less material and prevents surface sealing.
Central pile roots absorb high tensile forces and surface roots absorb the bending and shear forces. The paXos foundation system therefore combines an earth screw, which absorbs the tensile forces, and a rigid concrete slab just below the turf, which absorbs the bending and shear forces.
