Solar Ground Structures

    I am seeing an increasing number of people getting ground based panels, or pergola/lean to/car port type setups.

    Presumably these structure costs run into the thousands?

    Even many small ground mounts have proud owners advertising the 13 million tonnes of concrete they have it bolted onto.

    Is there anyone actually making an investment here or are they all being fleeced and incurring a huge cost which might return in 20 years if energy prices keep going north?

    im happy with my 8kw setup (roof) for now but if there was cost effective ground based options in time I'd line some of garden.
