Solar Operations Center
Our Solar Operations Center (SOC) serves as the command center for managing all O&M operations and maintenance activities. The SOC provides critical information technology and infrastructure, integrates production information to utility systems, and makes solar assets interoperable with the smart grid.
The SOC´s ability to manage continuous and optimal solar energy production is enabled by our unique business and operational model. This blends field-proven methodology, processes, personnel, and technology, including:
- Analytics – Benchmark and compare asset performance across portfolio, IRR metrics, geographies, weather patterns, module and inverter technologies, system design, arrays, strings, etc.
- Predictive Maintenance Capability – Spot gradual or long term degradations, and early signs of potential equipment failure. Address them during routine maintenance schedules to avoid unscheduled repairs.
- Integrated Field Services – Streamline field operations to optimize maintenance schedule, shorten time-to-repair, maintain thorough service records, etc.
- Information Sharing – Disseminate asset status, production and performance information to all parties involved via web portal, reports, communication channels and applications.
- Utility System Integration – Automate collection, validation and submission of production performance data to utilities including PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E in California via EDI. Integrate with smart meters, rates schedules and Smart Grid infrastructure.
