FLITE in the Energy Industry

By reducing rust on towers, wire and other infrastructure, we can lower losses due to outages. By reducing fouling on wind turbines, we can improve energy yield and stability and reduce cleaning costs. By reducing dust, ash, and other contaminants on solar panels, we increase yield and lower failure rates. We can also increase the efficiency of cells to increase light absorption.

Each application of this technology also drastically reduces maintenance costs.
