Above Surveying’s professional and pragmatic approach to collecting thermographic data and the granular level of detail portrayed via their online portal is an essential part of Amberside Energy’s toolkit. Their data is the first step in peeling back the skin of a solar asset to find out exactly what can be done to optimise the plant, precisely locating areas of potential upside, which is invaluable for our clients.
