Solar Panel Inspections with Infrared Thermography


How do you know if your thermographer has been properly trained to detect anomalies in your solar array? 

A2Z Inspection Services & Thermal Imaging has added a new and very important evaluation system to our repertoire of services – Infrared Thermal Imaging of Solar Panel Systems. After years of research Chris Duphily owner of A2Z Inspection Services inc. has co-written the only standard for conducting infrared inspections of installed photovoltaic systems.
Using thermal imaging cameras for solar panel evaluations offers clients several distinct advantages over contemporary evaluations.

  1. Exceptions or anomalies are clearly defined and detailed in the thermal image.
  2. Solar panels are thermally scanned during normal operation under full load.  (Most other methods require disruption of service and shut-down or disconnection of the system).
  3. Thermal Scans allow for considerably larger areas to be evaluated at once shortening the inconvenience of inspection disruption for your business operations and personnel.
