Recently, a solar power station was exposed, which used bamboo poles as a solar mounting bracket, as shown in the following figure:
Solar mounting bracket could be made of bamboo?Are you kidding ?
Let us look at its feasibility:
The solar mounting is a special support for the placement, installation and fixing of solar panels in solar power systems. The general materials are aluminum alloy, carbon steel and stainless steel. The materials related to the solar mounting system are generally divided into carbon steel and stainless steel. The surface of the carbon steel is hot-dip galvanized, and it is not rusted for 30 years in outdoor use. The pv mounting system features no soldering, no drilling, 100% adjustable, and 100% reusable.
The bracket is the structural component of the support assembly and is equivalent to the backbone of the entire solar system. Connect the components to their attachments: roof or floor, building components, etc. However, to meet the above requirements, we can find that the solar mounting bracket must be firm and firm in structure, which can meet the requirements of wind and snow pressure, otherwise it will be difficult to meet the requirements of support, followed by long service life and corrosion resistance. Ensure that the bracket and PV modules have Long service life.
It seems that using bamboo poles as a solar mounting bracket is the worst choice!
First of all, the resistance and load-bearing properties of bamboo are relatively poor. As a support, it must be support the weight of the components such as the battery board, and as a stable support for it, but the bamboo is obviously unsatisfactory.
Secondly, the ability of resist wind ,sand and rain of bamboo is poor. We all know that due to the characteristics of solar power plants, they are installed in outside, so they must withstand wind, sand, rain and snow, but it's difficult to guarantee the reliability when bamboo in the face of these bad weather . Once damaged, it is likely to cause PV modules damage,will lost heavily.
Third, the service life of bamboo is short. Compared to the mainstream brackets on the market today, the service life of bamboo poles seems to be rare. Let it and the component have a life span of 25 years or even 30 years, it is really impossible.
In fact, the importance of solar mounting system is self-evident, this is something that PV industry people all knows.
In the article, the bamboo solar mounting bracket can only be said to be a special method under special circumstances. It is not informative and implementable. if you only because of the temporary curiosity and cheapness, then the person who lost a lot must be you.
