PV System Operations and Maintenance Services: Protecting Your Investment

You are here

Webinar Archive


This webinar is open to the public. Open to SEIA members and non-members

Originally recorded Tuesday, February 25, 2014 1:00 p.m. EST

This webinar provides an overview of PV system operations and maintenance (O&M) services and explain why such services are so important.  There is a misconception that because PV systems often have few or no moving parts, these systems are maintenance free.  The reality is that O&M activities are an essential component of helping to ensure a favorable return on investment. If your company is responsible for the ongoing performance of commercial PV systems then this webinar is for you.  O&M services could mean the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful investment.


Participants learned......

  • What is included in a comprehensive O&M program
  • Some of the many different problems and failure modes that systems incur
  • Statistics about the most common problems and their associated costs
  • The potential cost of not investing in an O&M program
  • Whether to perform O&M services in-house or to outsource
