WIRELESS TOWER GROUNDING 
ON MOUNTAIN TOPS

WE GUARANTEE UNDER 5 OHMS GROUNDING IN SOIL THAT IS MOSTLY GRANITE

Great locations, geographically, for wireless tower cell coverage may not always provide the classic grounding schemes necessary for a five (5) ohm or less ground. These site locations are usually up on mountain tops where the soil is very poor and may consist of near solid granite.

Five (5) ohms or less is the magic number that many standards recommend, and this tower ground resistance to remote ground may not be good enough, depending upon the situation, to adequately protect equipment from lightning.

We will design your tower grounding system to five (5) ohms or less at your most difficult locations, for a flat fee of $2499.  If our design fails to meet the 5-ohm requirement, we will refund your money in full. This is LPGI & Affiliates’ guarantee.

We will design your tower grounding system to two (2) ohms or less for a flat fee of $3599 or refund your money in full. This is LPGI & Affiliates’ guarantee. A two ohm or less grounding system may be required in high lightning areas to ensure adequate protection of equipment.
