Solar panels

Are you a solar energy provider or an environmentally conscious business person or individual who wishes to install solar panels to produce energy?
To avoid structural displacements that can cause equipment failures, Pro Post Foundations screw piles are the best product available to solidly anchor your equipment. Our piles can be installed in any type of soil and can withstand any type of weather.

Stability and solidity

Solar panels absorb the sun’s energy and converts it into electrical or thermal energy, which means that they are always installed outdoors. When installed on the ground, their foundations must therefore be able to withstand any weather, be it rain, dry weather, storms and even ice storms as well as frost and thaw cycles. Pro Post Foundations piles are always driven down past the ground’s frost line, which means that they are impervious to ground movements brought about by temperature fluctuations. They will offer unparalleled stability to your solar panel installation.

Quick and easy installation

Our piles come in many sizes. We offer piles ranging in diameter between 1 ⅞ and 6 ⅝ inches equipped with helix plates (the screw that allows to drive the pile down into the ground) anywhere from 8 to 36 inches in size. The ideal pile for your installation will be determined by an in-house engineer depending on the project’s scope and type of soil.

Screw piles can be quickly, easily and effectively installed without damaging your property thanks to our Kubota mini-tractor. The tractor’s excavation equipment can also remove rocks and other obstacles to allow the piles to go down exactly where they should. Our powerful equipment will be able to access anywhere you wish to install your solar panels.

Our Piles

Similar to a giant screw, the piles are driven into the ground using specialized equipment and are anchored into place thanks to a helix plate situated at the bottom of the shaft. The piles can therefore securely support structures such as houses, patios, garden sheds, fences and much more. The piles can be used to support new or existent structures.
