Tesla Solar on a "fake roof" + Powerwall alternatives?

    Hello all. Kinda have 2 interrelated questions:

    Wife and I are buying a new house and have money saved up for a solar install. Solar panels won't work on the existing roof, so I am left with only a ground mount solution. My understanding is that Tesla will ONLY sell you a Powerwall as part of a new Tesla solar panel system on your roof (they don't do ground mount) so my problem is I don't think I can get Tesla Solar + Powerwall like we wanted, unless...

    Q1. Does anyone know if Tesla will install panels on some other type of structure...like for example I construct a valid ground mount framework for them or even a "ground mounted roof" (lol) or whatever concoction in my backyard for them to be installed on?

    Q2. All of the solar suppliers I have spoken to tell me I don't want/need a Powerwall, as they can provide a different battery solution that works just as well as a Powerwall does. I wanted a Powerwall because we own a Tesla and assumed the integration would be much better....is this true? Or would we be just fine with an alternative battery?

    Asking because if we don't *really* need to have a Powerwall, then we can just have one of the local solar companies do their basic ground mount install, which would be simpler....but I kinda want a Powerwall.

    Any advice with this?
