Services Tailored to Lifecycle Care
As a PV solar asset management company, our deep experience and expertise in solar
power plant operations and maintenance ensures optimal financial performance of a single
solar energy facility (SEF) or an entire portfolio of plants.
Monitoring, Benchmarking, Reporting
The first step in the O&M process is setting a baseline for the system under SST’s care. Access to monitoring is essential to measuring a system’s health and performance with data on manufacturers and environmental considerations. This tracks key performance indicators for current and projected output for the remainder of the system’s lifespan. Reporting is transparent and can be provided weekly, monthly or yearly depending on your requirements
Maximizing performance is what separates SST from the competition. Completing the scope of work defined by our partners and cross-referencing it with our 200 points preventative maintenance checklist verifies the health of your entire system and prevents future breakdowns and failures. Avoiding losses and ensuring your cash flow is our main objective and the one which we will be measured by.
Quick response and accurate repairs are vital when taking action on system issues. Expert troubleshooting and thorough documentation allow system owners and operators to make clear decisions based off all field information available. Minimizing system downtime is essential for ROI.
Protecting Your Solar Assets
Our robust team of experienced Electrical Engineers and Solar Technicians are fully trained and certified to analyze, test, repair and replace every component of your solar electric facility. Through years of experience in the electrical and solar industries, we have developed the most comprehensive and cost effective Solar PV O&M protocol in the industry today.
Specializing in Portfolio Clients
SST specializes in and focuses its resources on the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment of PV Operations and Maintenance. We have the capability to touch (commission and/or PM) 9 MW per day, nationwide.
In an effort to increase visibility and customer satisfaction, we have invested extensive resources in our proprietary field reporting application. It allows us to provide real-time data from the field to the customers. We are also able to easily adapt inspection checklists and/or safety procedures to ensure technicians fulfill all customer requirements.
All technicians have OSHA 30, NFPA 70e, JHA completed and have a full IIPP plan in place for all jobs, meeting and exceeding most customer requirements.
DAS Monitoring and Troubleshooting
Inherent sensor error, sensor drift, bad connections, and inaccurate calibration all contribute to measurement uncertainty. Regular calibration of these sensors ensures any analysis is based on accurate data.
SCADA – Engineering, Installation and Commissioning
SST’s team of engineers and technicians can provide turn-key SCADA solutions for any system in your fleet. Ranging from budget-friendly off-the-shelf monitoring solutions to custom-built SCADA systems capable of responding to automatic generation control signals and other dispatches from the local utility or balancing authority.
Annual PM inspections may be cost prohibitive for some systems. This plan ensures the system still receives regular attention and outages do not go unnoticed. Ad-hoc PM inspections allows SST to perform a comprehensive inspection while on site to investigate and repair issues discovered via monitoring.
Constant System Monitoring
You will be notified immediately should any production or non-production issues arrise.
Quarterly System Report
Historical production analysis will be presented and reviewed to determine if any issues are affecting system output.
Flat Rate Pricing
A solution for asset owners who need a quick response solution but doesn’t want to pay an arm and a leg to get it.
Solar Asset Management
Best-in-class technical and engineered asset management services
Asset oversight and planned maintenance activities are ensured by data forensics. Every managed solar site goes through a thorough vetting process to maintain financial expectations and mitigate losses in production and revenue. Sunsystem Technology’s software tools create a performance profile for each site to establish an accurate data driven benchmark for expected performance and availability.
By utilizing innovative drone technology, SST can perform site evaluations, mapping, and layouts quickly and with unmatched precision. SST has invested in a fleet of top quality drones, FAA pilot certifications, thermal imaging cameras and licensed mapping software to allow for quick turnarounds, reliable measurements and low costs.
Commissioning is the final verification process used to compare and confirm an installed project to its designed plans and engineering. It is the last chance to identify quality in workmanship, materials and ensures system integrity for the lifespan of the system. Your system was commissioned before being turned over to you the first time.
An important step in assuming O&M of a solar asset, recommissioning establishes a new baseline for all future measurements. It determines whether a system is underperforming expectations. In addition, this service can identify small issues before they become costlier.
