Whether solar projects are being set up for smalls scale use or larger commercial solar farms, construction sites need a thorough audit to ensure the land and the planned project specifications are suitable for the intended solar plant. Here we will discuss a few essential points regarding solar site survey. 

  • What does a typical solar construction site survey include in its scope?
  • Why are these surveys critical for a successful solar construction project?
  • How does Fielda help site surveyors conduct these audits with ease?

What a typical solar construction survey covers:

Before setting up any solar construction project, the site must be surveyed to capture critical data points about the location and intended construction. Surveyors include data such as the site coordinates, exact location, and specifications about the property, house/office, plant design, roofing, grounding bars, etc. In addition, they include details about the proposed service panel, solar cell support rafters, and access points for solar panels. All these data points help validate and build an efficient solar energy system or make needed changes to optimize the construction plan.  

What makes solar site survey so important for successful solar projects: 

Proper data at the survey stage helps planning teams, land owners, and equipment installation staff decide precisely how the construction can be set up most efficiently. The construction site survey provides vital details about location, equipment specifics, sunlight availability, etc., which enable engineers to develop the most effective design that will lower setup costs and prevent disruptions. During the construction phase, allow the best use of solar energy for specific location constraints.     

How does Fielda help inspectors use solar construction site surveys: 

During surveys, inspectors gather details, including numbers, pictures, drawings, etc., and putting this all together into a meaningful survey report can be tedious. Fielda helps streamline the data gathering process so that surveyors can log in information through a simple digital form and add photos, videos, drawings, or specification documents at one go from their mobile devices. This enables a well-structured information report for easy review and planning. Fielda also empowers inspectors with GIS capability helping them accurately map and visualize location and site details.  

Audit: Capture survey data with ease using custom digital forms and bolster reports with additional documentation for comprehensive planning

Manage: Maintain and update site survey records whenever needed without the hassles of paper-based documents and files

Monitor: Rapidly review reports and coordinate with stakeholders for optimized project execution and higher ROI
