Achieve Your Solar Asset's ROI with Operations & Maintenance (O&M)

With the rapid growth of solar and the need for resources to be managed, it is more important than ever to establish an Operations & Maintenance (O&M) contract. Whether the solar site is owned by your company or maintained on behalf of a client, you need the processes in place to effectively maintain the solar asset.

Since 2018, SEIA reports that Operations & Maintenance (O&M) has had a 4% increase of jobs within the solar industry and is forecasted for continued growth. O&M has become increasingly popular due to the acquirement of solar assets that may not be in a location that the site owner can visit and/or the site owner does not have the technical experience to care for the site

Typical O&M Service Plans

Don’t get stuck with a big bill and a thought of “we shoulda.” A solar array is no different than any other investment, it needs attention. To ensure your solar asset is hitting targets invest in ongoing O&M services.

Daily Remove Monitoring

Inverters have the capability to send the data to an online source to show the daily production of the array. Should an issue arise, the users are alerted to action. In most cases, system monitoring will identify trends. Deviations from trends can prevent bigger issues from erupting.

Dispatch Services

Get people to your site and remedy the issue quickly so the system can get back to producing. The most valuable dispatch services are designated local staff or trusted contractors to handle what needs to be done efficiently.

Annual Site Inspections

Critters love solar, crevasses, and wires. Having an experienced solar electrician and solar installer visit your solar field and comb over the site for cleaning, inspection, and to ensure proper operation of the equipment can save you thousands of dollars as well as production.
