In an ideal world, your solar structure would need little to no maintenance. And while for some structures that is certainly the case, there are always going to be those unforeseen events (think severe storms or a natural disaster) that can seriously set you back. That’s where an O&M team can come in handy. Protecting your physical asset involves diligent, routine maintenance and preventative care. Avoiding large-scale problems and repairs is all about taking care of the smaller, seemingly insignificant ones. An O&M team can help with everything you need to improve both the functionality and aesthetic appearance of your solar panels, including vegetation removal, comprehensive washing, and urgent repairs and maintenance.
If a solar investor is torn between deciding whether to hire an AM or O&M team, they’d likely go with the latter. Why? An AM might be extremely useful, but it’s not quite as urgently necessary as hiring someone who can fix a broken solar panel.
