Drones are reducing labor costs, maximizing performance, and providing granular insights for PV systems. The technology is now mature enough to support aerial thermography, capturing PV system performance data with thermal infrared (IR) cameras.
Our CEO, Nikhil Vadhavkar, recently authored an article on the value unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) AKA drones bring to the Solar industry. O&M providers, EPC firms and asset owners are adopting drone technology around the world to reduce cost and increase efficiencies within C&I to Utility scale plants.
Topics covered includes details on what drones can detect, making drone data actionable, equipment and format considerations, and understanding the basics of using drone technology for PV system inspections.
