As a provider of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services, ENcome is instrumental in ensuring the efficiency, longevity, and profitability of PV installations. Plants are being built quickly, yet often the need for care for the 30+ year lifetime is neglected.
The Importance of O&M in Photovoltaics
The journey of a PV system extends far beyond its installation. To simplify, once structures, solar panels and inverters are mounted and the plant is connected to the grid, it starts generating clean energy. However, the harsh realities of weather, external factors, and aging components can gradually affect the system's output. To maximize the return on investment and maintain a reliable energy supply, advanced monitoring, preventive maintenance, and prompt issue resolution are imperative.
