Maintenance requirements for utility-scale solar

Adequate solar system maintenance is an important factor determining the long-term success of any solar production facility. Improper or insufficient levels of maintenance can lead to increased levels of production loss. This underperformance or asset downtime is avoidable with increased levels of both predictive and preventative maintenance.

This in turn has led to service providers placing the resources at their disposal towards reactive maintenance and other services. This is instead of the levels of predictive or preventative maintenance that are required for a solar production facility to perform at peak performance.

RFM aims to provide asset owners and operators with further insight into the maintenance requirements of their solar production facilities. It serves to aid in highlighting areas of improvement, leading to the avoidance of underperformance and asset downtime.
