Energy Efficiency

We offer performance of standard activities associated with operating and maintaining solar power systems. Although the scope of services may vary by contract, O&M service arrangements generally include 24/7 system monitoring, certain PPA and other agreement compliance, North American Electric Reliability Corporation compliance, Large Generator Interconnection Agreement compliance, energy forecasting, performance engineering analysis, regular performance reporting, turn-key maintenance services including spare parts and corrective maintenance repair, warranty management, and environmental services.

Operations and maintenance activities can also include routine and outage/turnaround maintenance services, general maintenance and asset management, and restorative, repair, predictive and prevention services.

Drivers for Improved O&M

  • Increase efficiency and energy delivery (kWh/kW)
  • Decrease downtime (hours/year) • Extend system lifetime (25–40 years)
  • Reduce cost of O&M ($/kW/year) • Ensure safety and reduce risk
  • Enhance appearance and image
  • Often required in financing and warranty

O&M Activities

  • Billing; accounting
  • Hiring subcontractors
  • Enforcement of warranties
  • Management of budget and reserves
  • Monitoring
  • Metering for revenue
  • Alarms and Diagnostics
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Corrective maintenance (repair). Unplanned or condition-based. Possible expenditure is kept in reserve or line-of-credit
