Solar Operation and Maintenance
With our unrivalled rooftop solar PV expertise, EvoEnergy can give peace of mind to any UK solar PV array owner regardless of who installed the system. From our experience of solar we recommend, as a minimum, an annual inspection visit so your solar PV operates at its optimum performance each year, protecting both your return on investment and contributing to your electrical compliance regime.
Through our existing operation and maintenance contracts, we recognised that commercial solar PV owners have different needs and therefore our operation, maintenance and repair (OM&R) service offers three tiered options outlined below. These can be further customised to tailor a solution that meets your requirements.
Our OM&R service is available for solar PV systems from 20 kWp up to multi MWp sites.
Operation & maintenance options
Option 1 | Annual maintenance visit
This option allows you to request a one-off non-contract maintenance visit where one of our qualified electrical technicians will perform a visual initial inspection of your system and re-test electrical components and consumables*. Also included is a review of the data collected by the inverter and any fault codes identified. A shading analysis is conducted before a detailed report of findings is delivered to you with any recommendations for remedial or maintenance work, which we can carry out at additional cost.
* Components and consumables that are immediately accessible will be tested.
Option 2 | Monitoring and annual visit
This option allows you to benefit from our specialised monitoring service of your solar PV system (minimum 12 month contract term) in addition to the annual maintenance visit, detailed in option 1. Our ongoing ‘real time’ monitoring of your system will highlight generation issues and if your system goes offline, we will notify you within 24 business hours. Any remedial or maintenance work can then be arranged at additional cost. Whilst live generation will be made available to you online, we will also provide a monthly or quarterly generation report for your records which compares actual to expected performance.
With an extensive number of solar PV installations across the UK and given the variance of local weather, to really understand your system’s performance, we also benchmark against the performance of our other solar PV installations in your local area.
Option 3 | Operation, maintenance and repair
The full OR&M option (minimum 12 month contract term) gives you all the benefits of option 2 plus peace of mind that you have priority response for an agreed number of remedial repair visits and up to £200 +VAT towards consumable costs per year. Furthermore, EvoEnergy can take ownership of your feed in tariff and warranty management, and implement various additional levels of system monitoring from live daily meter readings to individual inverter monitoring.
Is your original solar PV installer no longer in business?
With a large number of solar PV installers going out of business in recent years, we are helping many commercial clients who have been left without support for their system – if you are one of these companies, have peace of mind that we are here to support you with your system maintenance and operational needs.
