Hello Steve,

For a stationary mount UniRac also offers a set of "feet" which are basically cut & drilled pieces of angle iron that can be bolted into the roof (and then the holes siliconed) and adapted to any solar panel.

One set of feet per solar panel

You should also use a charge controller even though you are starting with one solar panel for safety reasons. It is best to start with a controller that is large enough to handle the most amperage your system will every produce rather than having to upgrade controllers each time you add a solar panel.

We have some controllers that are smaller than 20 amps but the controller should be 25% larger than then solar array.
