What is RESource Digital O&M?Let REnergyWare perform your Digital Operations and Maintenance
US solar installations are expected to reach 90 GW by the end of 2020, As the nation and the world’s inventory of solar PV assets grows, it has become a requirement for companies to address the ongoing post-installation—operations, maintenance and asset management. This explosion of solar PV systems of all sizes around the world is driving the need for cost-effective O&M practices and company specialization to ensure best practices and superior plant performance.
While the solar O&M market got its start when EPC companies needed to service the installations they built, the landscape is changing. Lately, the market is moving in favor of independent service providers (ISPs). This can be attributed to the maturation of the market and the need for specialized service offerings. The level of complexity for O&M and asset management grows as the size of the install increases, with utility-scale installations requiring a sophisticated suite of services to manage and onboard large amounts of power onto the grid. This is where REnergyWare is positioned to assist.
