Drones provide quality inspection data across the solar life cycle, from site selection, through construction and commissioning, to long-term maintenance. Drones have use-cases that improve safety and increase efficiency for residential, commercial, and utility-scale solar. This whitepaper will review the benefits of drones in solar, explore use-cases, and discuss the basics of managing a drone program. There are bonus appendixes to help with things like deciding when to outsource and developing an Air Operations Manual. This is a great, practical resource for anyone who is considering using drones for their solar operations or is currently using drones and would like to learn more.
