Solar farms are an important part of our energy infrastructure, but they can be difficult and expensive to inspect. That’s where our drones come in. We use state-of-the-art drones with thermal imaging capabilities to provide a detailed inspection of your solar farm.
Skykam is Scotland’s leading aerial thermography company. We provide drone-based solar panel inspection services to help you get the most out of your solar farm. Our detailed solar PV inspections, reports, and analytics can help you maximize your return on investment.
Drone solar panel inspection can not only help identify defects in the cells of solar panels but also provides data on the performance of an entire solar farm. By looking at how well the solar farm is performing and pinpointing any defects, you can save time and money on maintenance and repairs. Thermal mapping is an essential part of any drone-based solar panel inspection service.
You can trust us to get the job done right. Our team has years of experience in the solar industry, and we use the latest technology to get the most accurate results. Plus, we offer competitive prices that will fit your budget.
We are Gold Certified Drone Safe – the most skilled, advanced, and safe operators available. We adhere to all Drone Safety protocols and have full Civil Aviation Authority licencing. We follow all Scottish drone laws.
Thermal mapping is a drone-based inspection method that uses thermal imaging to detect problems with solar panels. Thermal imaging works by detecting differences in temperature between objects. This allows inspectors to identify areas that are cooler or hotter than the surrounding area, indicating a defect.
Thermal mapping is incredibly useful for solar panel inspections because it can help identify problems that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye. By using thermal mapping, drone operators can get a detailed view of the entire solar panel array and detect any potential problems.
Drones can help identify a wide variety of problems with solar panels and solar farms. By using drone-based solar panel inspections, you can detect issues like cell defects, cell failure, dirt on photovoltaic cells, interconnection failure, degradation of solar cells, and a decrease in operational efficiency. This allows you to fix problems before they become too costly or difficult to fix.
A hot spot on a solar panel is an area that is hotter than the surrounding area. This can be caused by a number of things, including a defect in the panel, dirt or dust accumulation, or shading from nearby objects. Detection of hot spots is essential for the proper maintenance of solar panels.
Thermal imaging can help identify these hotspots so that they can be addressed and repaired before they cause any significant damage.
With our 4k thermal imaging cameras, you can be sure that you’re getting the most accurate results possible. Our drone-based solar panel inspections provide a high-resolution view of the solar panels and their surroundings, allowing for a more comprehensive inspection. The 4k images produced by our drone-based solar panel inspections are clear and concise, providing you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Solar panel inspection with a drone is a more efficient way to conduct a visual inspection of solar panels. Compared to ground-based inspections, drones can provide a higher-resolution view of the solar panels and their surroundings. This allows for a more comprehensive inspection and can help identify any potential problems with the solar panels or the surrounding area.
Interconnection failure is a problem that can occur when the wires that connect the solar panels to each other are damaged or corroded. This can cause a decrease in the overall efficiency of the solar panel array and can lead to further problems down the line. Thermal imaging can help identify areas of interconnection failure so that they can be repaired before they cause any significant damage.
Drone inspections can be used to detect the degradation of solar cells. The degradation of solar cells is the gradual loss of performance of solar modules over time. This can be caused by a variety of factors, such as exposure to the elements, physical damage, or electrical faults. By flying a drone over a solar array, operators can get a closer look at the panels and inspect for any degradation.

Our drones can capture images with a resolution of up to 4K. This allows for a high level of detail and accuracy when inspecting solar panels.
Yes, drone solar panel inspection can help to detect a variety of problems with solar panels, including defects, dirt accumulation, and shading from nearby objects.
It is recommended that drone solar panel inspection be carried out every six months to ensure that the panels are in good condition and operating at peak efficiency.
Drone solar panel inspection can help to improve the efficiency of your solar farm and identify any potential problems with the panels before they cause significant damage. Solar farms can also benefit from geo-tagged data sets, which can help you quickly find any problems with the array.
