Pole Barns: Can You Install Solar


Short answer: Maybe.

Whether or not you can install solar on the roof of a pre-engineered structure–whether it’s a pole barn, carport, or manufactured home–has to do with its load-bearing capacity. This isn’t the time to guess or hope whether the structure will hold up under the added weight of solar panels when snow and wind storms hit; we often have engineering reports to ensure the barn can support the solar energy system for years to come. It’s your investment!
