Asset Preventive Maintenance plays a key role in maintaining consistent production downtime and maintenance cost which greatly impact overall plant efficiency. Due to large area of solar farms, UAV technology has changed the operation for solar power generation. Drones are now key element of solar farm site engineering planning, solar panel site construction and installation along with the solar farm maintenance. Drones for solar panel inspections provide accurate results in a timely manner at a reduced cost versus doing manual inspections.


UAVs are equally beneficial in photovoltaic and thermal solar panels. All types of panels including monocrystalline, polycrystalline and thin-film can be inspected with thermal UAV sensors. As per a survey by Skyline "a well defined UAV program in solar farm -

  • Increases project revenue by 2% above the set baseline

  • Reduces Inspection cost by more than 50% and can reach even 90%

  • Drone solar panel inspections can identify more issues than manual ground inspections

  • Inspection time reduces by 90%

  • IV Curve tracing needs reduced by 90%

  • Reduces down time for operation and maintenance


Our focus in the solar energy segment is to increase "generation efficiency". Our strengths in the segment are in domain experience, UAV expertise and data processing. We use visual RGB and Thermal/IR inspections for solar panel farms. Our data and image processing center is well equipped with software and tools dedicated for solar panel inspections like Scopito Solar Solutions. Our pool of experts ensures proper data and image collections, detailed analysis of captured data and images. We offer timely generation of reports with maintenance recommendations. You will receive details of deteriorated parts of cells and arrays, misaligned (>10 degree) panels and rows, dust accumulation, shadowed panels, line deterioration, joints and poles health etc. Apart from undertaking turn-key jobs like thermal inspection of solar panels, towers and substations, we also provide data processing and analysis services for your existing data and images.

We can also provide a customized solution for any specific inspection and data collection needs like panels and rows alignment survey and poles health survey along with hard to reach panel areas and substation surveys etc.

Our inspection reports provide minute details of deficiencies with severity levels and mention the maintenance recommendations. Please click to see the sample inspection report -
