We are always looking for ways to help our clients get the absolute maximum out of their investment in solar.

Of course that’s focused on turning sunlight into electricity as efficiently as possible, but it also includes a few additional options that we have the specialist skills and kit to provide.

Our teams are trained in thermal imaging techniques that enhance the reliability, efficiency and safety of solar PV systems. And we have drone operators who are adept at surveying sites before, during, and following installation.

Thermographic inspections

Thermal imaging is a key tool during and after installation, to verify that every part of the system is functioning properly.

It allows defects and potential problems to be identified early, before they escalate. This keeps downtime to a minimum and extends the sytem’s operational life.


Hotspot detection

Hotspots in PV panels can be a sign of damaged cells, faulty connections, or other malfunctions.

Temperature mapping

Anomalies in temperature distribution can indicate uneven power production or potential issues with specific panels.

Inverter & connection inspection

Thermal imaging can highlight issues with inverters and electrical connections. Addressing these promptly helps prevent energy losses and maintains system.

Snow & dust buildup

Weather and other environmental factors can impact panel performance. Identifying buildups of snow or dust helps with timely maintenance regimes.

Fire prevention

Panel hotspots may be an early warning of a potential fire hazard. Detecting them allows quick intervention protect not just the solar PV system but also the building it’s mounted on.

Research & development

Thermal imaging is also useful for studying the thermal behavior of new materials and panel designs, helping in the development of more efficient systems.

Drone surveys

A drone’s aerial perspective is valuable at every stage of a solar PV system’s life cycle.

Our drone surveys inform the initial planning and design. They help with project management during the installation, reducing the risks of working at height. And they give us insights into performance that enable us to maintain the system at peak efficiency for years to come.

Shading studies

Specialised cameras can identify potential obstructions such as trees or nearby structures that might cast shadows on the solar panels.

3D modeling

Detailed 3D site models allow engineers and designers to plan the layout of solar panels efficiently, for optimal sunlight.

Topographical surveys

Topographical data is crucial for designing the layout of the solar array and optimizing its orientation for maximum energy production.

Status tracking

Real-time aerial views are a great help to project managers during construction. They can identify potential issues and confirm that the solar panels and other components are all installed correctly.

Maintenance inspections

Routine inspections capture high-resolution images and videos that can be used to identify signs of wear, damage, or malfunction.

Performance monitoring

Drones equipped with sensors can monitor the overall performance of the solar PV system, assessing the condition of the panels, tracking energy production, and identifying any anomalies that need attention.

Environmental impacts

The growth of foliage around the solar array can be tracked, along with shading from dust or snow. The maintenance programme can then be tailored to keep the system running at maximum effectiveness.
