The long term sustainability of the PV plant performances is strictly dependent on the inherent quality of O&M activities and on the real incentives of the O&M contractor to pursue long term performances, according to the PV plant owner

The Strategic Relevance of O&M Service Quality

Already in the early years of operations, rather all the owners of PV plants had the chance to appreciate the impact of O&M on the cash flow generated by their PV plants

The mission of the O&M contractor is to provide the owner of a PV plant with the best possible support in:

  • Maximizing the availability of the PV plant
  • Identifying areas of improvement of the plant efficiency in order to improve the PR, and consequently the overall energy production
  • Ensuring hidden defects, which might even only have long term effects, are promptly identified and corrected (possibly before the expiration of product and performance warranties)
