Providing KMLs for Your Site

As part of the ordering process, we request that you provide the KML design of the solar farm. This will allow for the most accurate digital representation of your solar farm and increase efficiency in the data-collection process.

Please note: Providing KMLs is not a replacement for as-builts.

You can upload your KML while filling out the order form here:

The KML should ideally include fence lines, road boundaries and row/tracker outlines. It should also include equipment-pad locations and electrical-string-wiring information if possible. This is what a KML should look like:

If possible, the KML should also include electrical-string-wiring information:

If your KML does not contain row-orientation information, flight preplanning will be limited.

Please reach out to your internal team to obtain a more detailed KML, if possible. However, if the only KML available is the array outline, please submit it.
