Grounding of PV panels
I am installing a 2nd array of 3 x 285 watt panels on a pole mount with a Midnite Solar combiner box/lightning arrestor. I mounted the box to the pole of my first array ( 4 x 175 watt panels). The installer did not ground them when he did the job and I want to ground it all but am not sure if I should drive a ground rod right near the pole or run a separate wire to the ground rod at the small building that houses the Outback inverter, charge controller, batteries and disconnects. Any help would be appreciated.
Outback VFX3524 inverter, Xantrex C-40 charge controller, Iota 24 volt charger, Siemens panels, German Solar panels, Pre-Formed Products pole mounts, Deka 6 volt batteries, 21kw Perkins/Borg Warner diesel generator.
