The Drillimation Solar Panel Project: It’s Happening

Drillimation Systems is announcing that starting next week, the solar panels at Drillimation will be installed. The panels aim to have Drillimation rely on solar energy rather than get electricity from the power grid. If in the event of a power failure like what happened last week, Drillimation will continue to run independently while the sun provides a continuous source of energy. This may also save Drillimation some money over the cost of running the computer each day.

Drillimation suffered multiple outages over the past two weeks, though they only lasted from 10 – 30 minutes. Below are the outage times and the cause of them:
