Solar Panel Inspections

On average, Solar Panels are expected to last or perform at an optimal level for 20-30 years. However, with the right maintenance, this can be extended by a significant margin.

At Target Surveys, we have a fleet of DJI Matrice 300 drones equipped with the latest H20T thermal imaging cameras, allowing us to quickly and accurately survey any solar panels and identify the ones that aren’t performing at an optimal level – so you can continue to generate energy in the most efficient way possible.

What Is A Solar Panel Survey & Inspection?

Solar panels are designed to last a long time with little to no maintenance. However, like anything, this is not always the case. Which? The popular online product reviewer revealed in a survey that “Nearly four in ten solar owners have problems with their solar panels.”

This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t upgrade to solar energy, instead, it emphasises the importance of keeping your system in the best condition possible.

A Solar Panel Inspection is no different to your car’s MOT. It gives experts a chance to examine your solar system and identify any potential problems or issues that may be present. 

On average, users who choose to have regular Solar Panel Inspections find that not only is the lifespan of their solar system improved, but the electrical output is also! 

Our inspection can examine your photovoltaic systems to ensure they are running at an optimal level. At times, a quick inspection can help increase performance by up to 30%!

Solar Surveys and Thermal Inspection

We always use the latest drone technology fitted with thermal imaging cameras to identify any anomalies or issues with your solar panels. Our Solar Panel Drone Surveys can identify the following problems with your solar panel systems:

    • Panel
    • Inverter 
    • Electrical
    • Hot Spots
    • Degradation
    • Micro Cracks 
    • Wildlife issues
      • Birds are often attracted to the panels on your roof and are also prone to nesting under the panels building up dirt on the panel glass!

The Thermal Imaging cameras equipped on our drones allow us to easily scan the photovoltaic panels present on your solar panels to ensure they are working correctly and at optimal levels. 

Our Solar Panel Drone Survey report includes thermal images of all your solar panels, close up 4K footage and images, overview pictures of your site as well as an overview report.
