Title: Unveiling the Vision: Solar Drone Design - Revolutionizing Solar Efficiency and Precision


As I prepare to present my business plan to esteemed individuals Tanguy, Rachid, David Williamson, and the Rive brothers, I invite them to embark on a transformative journey with Solar Drone Design. Drawing from a rich background in the solar industry, my passion for innovation and meticulous attention to detail have driven me to create a solution that addresses the inherent challenges faced by the industry. By leveraging cutting-edge drone technology and aerial photography, Solar Drone Design aims to revolutionize the efficiency and precision of solar installations, while minimizing costs and labor-intensive processes.

Section 1: Pioneering in the Solar Landscape

My journey in the solar industry began in 2010 when I joined Vivint Solar as their first Electrician in Northern California. Later, I moved to SolarCity, where I had the privilege of working alongside Tanguy Serra, whose pay-by-the-watt philosophy inspired me. My expertise in electrical work and my ability to train and manage installers contributed significantly to Vivint Solar's success. Recognizing the importance of efficiency, I wholeheartedly embraced the concept of performance-based pay, resulting in increased productivity and heightened job satisfaction.

Section 2: Unveiling the Missing Link

During my tenure at SolarCity, I became acutely aware of a critical gap in the industry's construction and contractor mentality. This realization became the catalyst for my journey to pioneer a solution that would bridge this gap. My entrepreneurial spirit led me to embark on a new chapter in Florida, taking charge of operations for Titan Solar Power. It was during this time that I delved into the design aspect of solar installations, leveraging my extensive field experience to identify and overcome inefficiencies. My drive for efficiency and the pursuit of an edge in the industry led me to explore drone technology.

Section 3: Aerial Precision and Efficiency Unleashed

In 2022, an unexpected injury forced me to relinquish scuba diving and embrace photography as a new passion. This journey eventually led me to discover Drone Deploy and their revolutionary aerial surveying capabilities. The efficiency and accuracy presented by their technology resonated deeply with me, and I envisioned its transformative potential within the solar industry. Despite facing initial challenges in conveying this vision to others, I remained resolute in my belief that drone technology held the key to unlocking unprecedented efficiency and precision.

Section 4: Enter Solar Drone Design

In 2023, fueled by a desire for renewed vibrancy and a commitment to innovation, I established Solar Drone Design under the leadership of CEO Rachid at Suntria. With unwavering support and belief in technology, we embarked on a mission to revolutionize the solar industry. Our approach entailed training skilled pilots to conduct surveys that would precisely measure roof parameters, providing designers with accurate data within a four-hour timeframe compatible with their CAD systems. This breakthrough allowed for same-day rooftop designs with unparalleled accuracy, eliminating the need for cumbersome human measurements.

Section 5: Advantages and Scalability

Solar Drone Design offers solar companies significant cost savings by eliminating fleet, reducing labor requirements, minimizing the risk of injuries, and eradicating inaccuracies that often accompany traditional measurement methods. By presenting our business plan with the utmost clarity and articulating the scalability potential across the nation, we aim to showcase how Solar Drone Design can address growing pains and further drive down costs while boosting Suntria's success.


As I stand before esteemed individuals Tanguy, Rachid, David Williamson, and the Rive brothers, I implore them to embrace the vision of Solar Drone Design. By leveraging the power of drone technology and our unwavering commitment to efficiency and precision, we have the potential to reshape the solar industry, ushering in a new era of profitability, accuracy, and sustainability. With their support and expertise, we can revolutionize the landscape of solar installations, redefining what is possible for our industry and beyond.
