Today, to us electricity and light are taken for granted: it is sufficient to switch on and our homes have light, our companies have energy for working.
Great strides have been made in this field and soon renewable energies will be the primary sources, overcoming fossil fuels: solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, wind are the new frontiers on which to invest studies and knowledge.
In this context, it is important to remember the maintenance of energy systems, whatever they are low, medium, or high tension but also renewable energy, such as solar panels.
Passage of time and exposition to weather conditions can easily compromise the efficiency of the system or even cause real incidents let’s think to the case where brushes or branches fall over power lines causing not only an environment disaster but also economic problems.
It is important to plan a proper maintenance of systems. In case of power lines, it is fundamental to frequently cut the grass on the base to avoid the take over of climbing plants.
In the last decade, solar panels have become the symbol of renewable energy: they produce energy thanks to the sun and have seen a remarkable engineering development, also because they can be used for domestic use.
In this case the maintenance is double: it is necessary to frequently cut the grass at the base of panels to avoid damages to internal mechanism. Then, it is important an accurate cleaning of the panel from dust, soil or sand that can invalidate the energetic efficiency of the tool.
In addition, the installation of new systems often requires the opening of paths and corridors in inaccessible or completely abandoned areas: land reclamation is a first step for avoiding future problems and emergency maintenance.
