May 13 (Renewables Now) - Spectacular Solar Inc (OTCMKTS:SPSO), a diversified company incorporated in Nevada, said today it has agreed with SkyVue LLC to create a joint venture that utilises drone technology in solar system maintenance.

SkyVue is a New Jersey-based firm that specialises in drone operations and aerial production. In turn, Spectacular Solar, through its units, is involved in solar system installations, investment fund management and roofing contracting.

The pair plans to use thermal imaging and drone technology to detect dead modules and panels on the cell level, allowing to determine the degradation level of each module, the announcement says.

“This joint venture is going to produce valuable contracts that will have a strong positive effect on SPSO’s net revenue and will benefit SkyVue financially as well,” stated Doug Heck, CEO of Spectacular Solar.
