Powering Up 

It’s no secret that the Southwestern states have an abundance of sunshine. The solar industry offers an eco-friendly way to harness this energy, and drones have proven to be an invaluable resource for this booming power source by saving time, resources, and increasing efficiency.  

Our drones are fitted with specialized cameras which we use to:
  • Collect infrared, radiometry, and thermal images
  • Inspect solar panels for damageĀ 
  • Identify cold spots and fire hazards

With the added speed of a drone, comprehensive data for an entire solar field can be collected in a fraction of the time traditional methods use.    

We at EmpowerUAV are using drones to actively help the solar industry grow and maximize energy collection, while promoting safety and keeping work environments safe.
