As groundwork for a potential new opportunity for ASME Council on Standards and Certification (CSC) we would like to investigate the potential and the interest in developing Guidance Documents or Standards to assist the industry with assessment of installed solar panels. An article in ME mag. "A Visual Inspection Guide to Detect Faulty Solar Products" is what fostered this thought. The use of Unmanned Mobile Vehicles (UMV) seems to be a starting point, and would give ASME headway into establishing greater UMV Standards presence. I am seeking individuals to participate on an ad hoc team to generate a recommendation to CSC. We are open to all suggestions and value your input tremendously. Please contact me at
