What is Photovoltaics ( PV)? is the conversion of light into electricity using semiconducting materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect, a phenomenon studied in physics, photochemistry, and electrochemistry. The photovoltaic effect is commercially utilized for electricity generation and as photosensors .
AKA Solar Panels.
It’s really no fun when the sun gets to do all the work!
Regular inspections of solar panels are important to long lasting solar panels, and efficient power generation. Like the rest of our thermal imaging, routine maintenance of solar panels help us identify potential defects or electrical interconnection issues. A huge benefit here is this process can be done while the solar plant is operational, and does not require any shut down.
Thermal imaging cameras will show accurate temperature differences between cells or within a single cell that allow you to identify faults earlier than later.

DID YOU KNOW?
Solar panels need the sun to work, but did you know that as the temperature increases solar panels can become less efficient? Thus producing less electricity. Any defects can cause them to break down, and could possibly damage the entire solar plant, even fires.
USING DRONES FOR SOLAR
Drone technology allows us to perform a variety of inspections that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to pull off manually. When combined with our thermographic imaging, we are able to inspect solar panels for potential dead cells, and cover a large area in a shorter time.
