Why should you invest in solar plant security

There are several reasons why you should invest in solar plant security. Because the sites can often be found in a remote area, there is little chance that passers-by notify the emergency services.

In addition, the solar panels are often widely spread over a large area of land, so you need several security guards to cover the solar farm. Therefore it’s very expensive to call in security guards who must be present at all times.

Our solar farm security system is not just technology. Behind every camera unit is a competent security specialist who is trained to handle the situation in the right way. We install innovative devices to secure your solar plant from remote. In order to determine your security needs, Kooi performs a free security check.

Solar farm security camera with infrared technology

The environment in which the solar farms are situated are usually not well lit. Normal camera systems can’t spot intruders in the dark, because the lack of night vision. That’s why we equipped our CCTV Tower with infrared technology to guarantee effective and reliable footage day and night.

An additional advantage of our solar farm security is that no light is needed on the solar farm. This way you won’t have to worry about light pollution at a location away from well-lit areas. We can install one or more security solutions in order to deter unwanted guests. Feel free to ask more information about the costs of our security cameras for solar farms.

We install the solution on the best possible location to ensure the complete coverage of your solar farm.

Solar farms without the proper security systems are at high risk for theft. A panel is an expensive investment and it costs a lot of money to replace it. You can invest in traditional guarding systems, but this will be more expensive and less effective than our solutions.

When a trespasser tries to gain excess to your solar farm, they will be detected by our security solutions. At that moment a notification is sent to our PAC-Certified alarm center.
