Research has shown wind turbine blades are frequently struck by lightning and in some cases the same turbine is struck multiple times per year. Identifying which turbines were struck and when can lead to a targeted, more immediate inspection of the turbine blades vs. a broader, less timely approach of checking all turbines once per year. Identification of damage early is now easier than ever with new emerging technology like drones. Finding the damage can allow for quick repair while the expense is minor saving the costs of a major blade repair or replacement down the line.
