“The partnership with Raptor Maps on this innovative technology goes beyond demonstrations, and implements ground-breaking solutions in a responsible and scalable way.”

Rafael Gonzalez, Head of Enel Green Power North America

“Aerial thermography has become a valuable tool in SOLV’s offering as a solar O&M provider to maximize DC health. The ability to perform these inspections internally makes us more efficient and allows us to scale operations, passing those savings on to our clients. A major challenge of aerial thermography is how to process and generate reports once a site has been inspected. SOLV evaluated a dozen companies that provide drone inspection imagery data processing and report generation and found Raptor Maps to be the best solution in the market for our specific needs. Raptor Maps enables us to quickly and effectively perform the drone inspection, can support our wide range of sites under management, and provides clear and actionable reports for our field team on what items need to be fixed versus monitored,”

Reegan Moen, Business Development Manager, SOLV, Inc., a Swinerton Company

“The Raptor Maps team has developed a solution that has added excellent value to Cypress Creek O&M. This partnership allows our Reliability Engineering team to focus on inspections, repairs and analysis and leave the heavy lifting of reviewing thousands of images for anomalies to automation without measurable impacts to accuracy. The partnership will lead to improved report turnaround time, more time devoted to inspections and repairs and most importantly improved facility performance for our customers.”

Kyle Cooper, VP of O&M, Cypress Creek Renewables

“New Energy Equity, the country’s leading end-to-end solar development and finance specialist, and its asset management division, Energy Support Services, which brings a proactive and data-driven approach to solar asset management, chose to add Raptor Maps’ aerial inspection services and solar analytics software to our workflows to increase efficiency and collaboration between our teams. Raptor Maps enabled us to reduce our use of exploratory IV curve tracing, significantly lowering our operating costs. The transparent software platform helps us efficiently manage our assets, identify DC health issues earlier, and provide best-in-class O&M services to our clients who also have access to the platform.”

Conrad Gross, Director Operations, Energy Support Services, New Energy Equity
