Developers of solar projects are facing the question…what are you doing to prevent the issues Walmart encountered?
Even a perfectly engineered system doesn’t guarantee a perfectly installed PV system. The workmanship of a system can vary greatly. A perfectly installed solar system won't stay perfect year after year in the elements.
That’s what happened with Walmart and Tesla. The systems were not adequately commissioned and then were not maintained year after year. How do you avoid the same issues?
PV Pros is your answer.
These concerns are exactly why PV Pros was started in 2015. PV systems need independent engineering and O&M services to reduce the project risk and systems generating at maximum profitability.
With PV Pros on your team, you can show your clients that quality and safety are your priority.
Here is a quick summary about the PV Pros services and how they can fit into your project development or acquisition.
Step 1 - INDEPENDENT ENGINEERING before & during construction.
PV Pros is a reliable, quality focused engineering firm that represents your interests throughout project execution, acquisition, and into operation. We are flexible in our approach and can act independently or as an extension of your team to reduce risk and maximize your profit.
