I'm trying to mount a solar panel rack with 2 panels using a 10' and 5' length of sched-40 2" galv iron pipe. It will be 2' in-ground (concrete), supported every 24" with strapping to one leg of wood tower and only the top 4.5' is unbraced...
Is this kind of pipe OK for this? It seems sturdy but I'm not sure if it is OK in cold weather(?) and whether it will be susceptible to bending with a wind load. Finding a similar steel pole has been challenging.
Anybody have advice?

My one satellite dish (~2' ellipse) was mounted on a 10') 2" sch 40 pipe. It was buried 4' down (frost line) with concrete.
