Solar Panel Inspection Services
With the government spearheading efforts to embrace renewable sources of energy, installation of solar panels (photovoltaic systems) have increased dramatically. Scores of people and organizations are harnessing the sun’s energy to produce electricity for numerous purposes. While installation of solar panels can be a monumental task, inspection presents an even greater challenge.
Why? Because it’s a risky business.
Solar panels are installed high up from the ground, which means workers must climb high-rise platforms to be able to perform inspections. Essentially, production of energy must stop. Solar panel inspection Drones alleviate the need to stop energy production and the risk to workers.
Why inspection of solar panels is necessary
A single defective cell can compromise the whole solar panel system resulting in economic loss. The photovoltaic modules are main constituents of the system. They play a crucial role in converting the sun’s energy into electricity. The best inspection module is, therefore, critical for effective and timely maintenance of the photovoltaic system in order to get optimal performance and a great return on investment.
Some defects like cracking, misalignment, yellowing, oxidation, and corrosion in the photovoltaic modules can be visible to the naked eye. These defects are caused by severe environmental conditions, for example, snow, salt, corrosive gas, hail or dust. This means they can be viewed with a photo or video camera right away.
Other defects like faulty inter-connectors, defective bypass diodes, and temporary shadowing are pretty hard to detect. In fact, they are more responsible for the poor performance of your solar panel. These defects can be perfectly detected with the aid of a thermal camera. Thermal images captured by thermal cameras include a map of colors that show the surface temperature of the panel.
Eliminate Safety Risks
Eliminate the time spent on creating a safety document and sending specialized personnel up for inspection. Our drone will inspect hard to reach areas and help cut back on expenses and insurance. Why spend a bunch of money, time and consider an option that is loaded with risks when you have a drone that can complete the tasks in hours with zero risks.
Superior quality images and live video feeds
Our drones are fitted with top quality cameras that deliver top-notch images. You get to see your solar panels for real and spot any visible defect right off. On top of that, you get live video stream of your solar panels.
Interact with an experienced thermal analysis expert
You benefit from the latest thermal image technology that detects problems, which cannot be seen with the naked eye. A thermal imaging camera can only see the heat distribution on the surface of the glass. It can’t directly see heat distribution in the underlying cells. Additionally, the reflecting glass impacts the quality of the images. A thermal analysis expert knows the right distance, angle and flying speed to beef up the time and boost outcomes.
Accurate diagnosis and cost-effective resolution
Thermal images only offer malfunction images. Only a certified and experienced PV Modules Expert (PV doctor) will guarantee accurate diagnosis and cost-effective solution.
