Solar Site Planning

Proper site planning is necessary for solar energy systems to work efficiently.

Research and Investigation:

The first step in solar site planning is to select a suitable area. In this area, it is important to determine the location where the sun’s rays can be collected most efficiently. Factors such as land topography, distance from structures that can block the sun’s rays, climate and local wind conditions should be taken into consideration.

Efficiency Calculations:

For PV panels to work efficiently, they must be placed at the right angle. The positions where the sun’s rays can fall at the steepest angle should be determined. Calculations may vary depending on the location of the site and ensure that the panels achieve optimum efficiency.

Infrastructure Planning:

Solar field installation is not just about the panels. Infrastructure elements such as electrical connections, security measures and monitoring systems should also be considered. Accessibility should also be part of the planning process so that maintenance and repair work can be carried out easily.

Compliance with Local Regulations:

Solar projects are often subject to local regulations. It is necessary to research issues such as permits, licenses and environmental regulations in advance and obtain the necessary permits. These processes are critical to ensure that the project proceeds smoothly.

Assessing Environmental Impacts:

Although solar energy is environmentally friendly, it is important to assess environmental impacts during site planning. Factors such as bird migration routes, vegetation and the local ecosystem should be taken into consideration to minimize environmental impacts.

Drone-based imagery has 8 times better resolution than consumer-grade satellite imagery; layouts maintain tolerance at the inch level, which eliminates the need for redesign or modification.

Site analysis plays a crucial role in the sales process. We are ready to guide them through the entire solar installation process instead of long hassles at solar sites. We complete a drone analysis in the same time it takes a surveyor to install a ladder.

Drone imagery offers 8 times superior resolution compared to satellite imagery. This allows adjustments to be made without the need for redesign or modification, while maintaining inch-level precision.

Site analysis plays a critical role in the sales process. At solar sites, we are ready to guide you through the entire installation process instead of lengthy efforts. What could be done using manual methods, we complete in a short period of time with a drone analysis.

MapperX’s 3D modeling software allows system designers to create layouts without any guesswork, manual drawing or questions about site obstacles.

Observe the topography of the solar site from the air with a wide aerial perspective to anticipate current issues with the site and prioritize improvements using AI-powered insights and classifications.

Solar Site Planning with Drone

Solar power plants are used to collect energy from solar panels and generate electricity. The design and construction of solar plants should be done taking into account the site’s topographical features, potential for receiving sunlight and other factors.

Drones are becoming an increasingly common tool in solar site planning. Drones can be used to create high-resolution images and 3D models of the site. The data helps system designers to better understand the site’s characteristics and design more efficient and effective solar plants.

Drones can be used in many stages of solar site planning. In the first phase, drones can be used to create an overview of the site. This can help determine the size and shape of the solar system. Next, drones can be used to measure the topographical features of the site and its potential to receive sunlight to optimize the placement of solar panels. Finally, drones can be used to oversee the construction of the solar power plant.

MapperX’s 3D Modeling Software

MapperX is an artificial intelligence software used to process drone imagery and create 3D models. MapperX is specifically designed for solar site planning and can create high-resolution and accurate 3D models of the site using drone imagery.

Here are some advantages of MapperX for solar site planning:

  • It helps you better understand the characteristics of the solar site.
  • Help you design more efficient and effective solar power plants.
  • Minimizes human error.
  • Saves time and costs compared to manual processes.

Drones and MapperX’s 3D modeling software are an effective way to make solar site planning more efficient, effective and accurate. These technologies can help promote the adoption of solar energy on a wider scale.
