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
Rapid and easy scans for roof tops and arrays
Hot spot identification showing defective cells / geo tagged image
Repair purpose /planning of panel placement
Infrared signature show defective panels
Keep the solar farm running at peak efficiency
Save time with pre selected way point aerial inspection
Utilizing drones will typically reduce cost of inspection by approximately 30 – 50 %
Speed of inspection time is greatly saved
Potential problem areas can be detected and repair
Scan large area with short time frame
