The solar industry is booming worldwide, especially in the United States, where solar has experienced an average annual growth rate of 42% in the last decade alone. This growth is driven by climate goals, global pressure to transition to renewables, unprecedented consumer demand, and economies of scale. But according to the International Energy Agency, solar is now "the cheapest energy in history."
Of course, this doesn't mean that the industry is without high costs or barriers to adoption. The installation of solar panels and fields still poses substantial financial and safety risks. However, we now have the technology to assist with these problems. Specifically, ground robotics helps commercial solar companies drive down costs and overcome some of their maintenance and operational challenges.
In this eBook, you’ll learn:
- The significant impact of ground robotics on solar operations
- The benefits of using ground robots to inspect solar panels and assets
- How ground robots can save valuable time for employees
