Who we are?

solardrone– Contributing to the sustainability of the planet

Award-winning company

Our goal is to maximize the efficiency and performance of your solar installations through immediate actions based on the information obtained.


Our history

Solardrone was born in Extremadura, a very unique region in southern Europe whose demographics and climate place it in the top 3 of areas with the most photovoltaic plants on the continent.

Our CEO and founder José Quesada, an aeronautical engineer from the UPM in Madrid, proposed rethinking the way in which the maintenance of photovoltaic solar installations was carried out at that time.

After a few months of analysis and work, José proposes an unprecedented and completely disruptive technology so far that allows the maintenance speed to be multiplied by 10 and its cost divided by 10. This project is the winner of the “Entrepreneurial Ideas of the Rural World” contest of the Provincial Council of Cáceres, obtaining a prize of €6,000, being selected as the best among more than 20 projects.

Confirmation that we are going in the right direction comes two months later when it is selected from more than 900 projects to be accelerated by “Telefónica Open Future”, with an injection of €50,000 of capital and a 6-month incubation surrounded by the best professionals to begin to transform the initial idea, which had arisen almost as a concern, into a true business reality.

In 2018 Solardrone is the winner of the National Young Entrepreneurs Contest.
