Continuous growth of the solar industry bring ever expanding base of solar installations. In the booming solar industry, efficiency is crucial to your company’s success. Whether you install solar panels, inspect and repair large arrays, or survey land for solar farm prospecting, drone photos, maps, and 3D models can improve productivity and accelerate design cycles. The latest drone technology — like aerial mapping, thermal imaging, digital terrain modeling, and automated roof measurement — gives you a rich set of data to streamline your workflows and generate real-time insights. High-resolution drone maps far surpass imagery gathered by satellite or manned aircraft in accuracy, accessibility, and cost.

Quality assurance is of fundamental importance for solar panel as they are expected to provide life for 20 years. Drone with all of the inspection can be performing yet another one is the solar panel. Drones and solar panels are both pieces of technology that are being used increasingly more. Solar inspection is very important to know exactly what goes in the panels. And they are prone to small defects that can be hard to see with naked eyes.

And drones are most commonly being used to inspect large solar farms. Where hundreds of solar panels are tightly in a fit together in a large field they could be used to inspect single home units but it is much more useful for large solar farms

Major advantages of drone

Comprehensive Coverage

Applying drone technology to PV system inspections has allowed for more accuracy than previously possible with manual field tests, ie. I-V curve tracing. Performing manual inspections of solar farms is extremely timely, labor-intensive, and leaves room for error. The amount of time it takes to perform these tests can also lead to variation in the test results. By taking aerial footage of an entire solar asset in a short period of time (a couple hours), you eliminate inconsistencies and avoidable errors in your inspection data. O&M teams that have implemented drones in their workforce have reported reducing time on site by 90%.
