Annual Infrared Safety & Operational Performance Inspections of roof- or ground-mounted solar panels proactively identifies issues and prevents potential system fires which can cause injuries and extensive damage to the PV system as well as the building if roof mounted. Predicting where issues will continue developing allows for proactive corrective planning to avoid the partial or total loss of all energy production from the system. For large panel arrays (1000 to 50,000 plus panels systems) even a minor degradation of electricity generated can be quite substantial and very expensive.
