How to optimize your PV operations and management strategy for improved plant
output and increased profits
As the US PV industry continues to boom, more projects are being built
without a robust O&M strategy. The status quo of just ensuring the projects
get constructed at the lowest price is not only unpopular but an unprofitable
short sighted approach towards the life cycle of your plant.
'Contrary to popular belief, PV power plants are not maintenance free; they
require a regimen of continual monitoring, periodic inspection, scheduled
preventative maintenance, and service calls' EPRI Whitepaper Report
In today’s competitive market, ensuring you have an effective asset
management strategy is more than just increasing your uptime it is also about
gaining investor’s confidence. That is why it now key to demonstrate the
long term productivity & profitability of your plant through an O&M plan that
will yield a higher ROI!
At the PV Plant Operations and Management Training Workshop you will get
answers to:

* How can O&M profit your business? Learn about the steps needed to take at
the pre-construction phase that will dramatically improve long term plant
* Maintenance Strategies:  Designing a cost effective schedule that
balances preventative and reactive maintenance for increased plant
* Monitoring Solutions: Understanding key data that provides a detailed
analysis on the plant’s performance so you can prevent failure and
guarantee ROI on your system
* Warranties & EPC Contracting: Ensuring you protect the value of your PV
asset through full proof EPC and service provider agreements
* Little shop of PV Horrors and Triumphs: - Case studies demonstrating the
real cost of both effective and ineffective O&M strategies and how they
impacted plant performance and your bottom line
