"I joined the team because working at a startup with the potential to make such a positive impact for the utility industry is a very compelling opportunity. The fantastic team, exciting technologies, and the overall objective made it a perfect fit for me," said Lyndon. 

Fast Forward helps electric utility companies’ lower inspection costs by automating annual patrol & inspections of powerlines, significantly reducing power outage and wildfire potential. 

Electric utility inspectors install a roof mounted thermal & RGB sensors on a vehicle to speed the inspection process and have already saved utilities over $1 million dollars in outages. 

"Lyndon is an excellent problem solver and our customers continually applaud his design and functionality of the tools he's building," said CEO Dusty Birge. Dusty mentioned, "the talent we're able to bring into the organization is unbelievable and I'm very fortunate to have such a solid team."
