The Energy Gang podcast: Managing large-scale solar
How to pick the best O&M provider for the job
Of all the stages of a solar project, the operations and management stage is arguably the most crucial. When you’re thinking about project efficiency and financial returns in solar, you need to have a concise plan for the O&M stage.
Greg Shambo is Vice President of Business Development at Borrego. He says that ‘when you get into the operations stage, this is where you make the money. If you can’t operate profitably from day one, you end up losing money. We call these walking dead sites, because they were doomed to start with.’
For the last forty years, Borrego have established themselves as one of the most reliable names in the US solar and energy storage industry. From their early days as solar pioneers, to today – as leaders on the national energy storage stage – Borrego have delivered timely and secure management to solar projects. In 2014, Borrego launched a stand-alone O&M business for both EPC and non-EPC customers to help optimise and maintain system performance and help their clients achieve their financial goals.
Jay Smith also joins us, he’s the Director of Asset Management at Standard Solar, a client of Borrego.
On the show, Greg and Jay take us through the management of large-scale solar projects, and how clients can ensure they pick the best O&M provider for the job.
