    On this aerial roof survey, we found cracked roof tiles directly above a roof where leaks occurred. The owner of the residence told us that there was a spot on the ceiling that looked like water damage but it wasn’t too excessive – small enough to ignore. Once we had the drone in the air…

    Aerial thermal solar panel inspection

    Thermal imaging technology is what we use to inspect solar panels. With our FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) thermal drone we can detect hot spots, manufacturing defects, cracks, faulty inter-connectors, defective bypass diodes and temporary shadowing. Using a thermal drone is a non-destructive and non-invasive method to locate abnormal spots on solar panels. We can thermal…

We ran a routine inspection of the panels and found a total of 4 faulty panels which can be easily distinguished by their…
