Solarrus Corporation Consolidates Under the MaxGen Energy Services Name to Underscore its Unified Approach to Servicing Customers

Solarrus Corporation, a leading independent service provider in the US solar, electric vehicle and battery energy storage industries, announced today that it is consolidating its brands under the MaxGen Energy Services name.

COSTA MESA, Calif., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Solarrus Corporation, a leading independent service provider in the US solar, electric vehicle and battery energy storage industries, announced today that it is consolidating its brands under the MaxGen Energy Services name.


The company's remaining brands - True South Renewables, Solarrus, and Solarrus EVS - will be retired from commercial use over the coming months and all commercial relationships will be migrated to the MaxGen Energy Services name. MaxGen CEO Mark McLanahan said, "The time has come to align our team and our service platform under a single brand. Our highest priority is to maximize generation of our customers' assets and the MaxGen Energy Services name best reflects our commitment to that goal."

The company's services will continue to extend across a comprehensive scope of work:

In the commercial and residential solar markets, MaxGen delivers industry-leading solar operations and maintenance (O&M) services on a nationwide basis. Existing O&M customers familiar with True South Renewables will continue to experience the same high-quality, professional service.
As the distributed energy grid evolves to incorporate electric vehicle charging and battery energy storage systems, MaxGen provides full design-build capabilities. The company continues to provide O&M to this equipment after it is placed in service, making MaxGen a comprehensive service provider for the full life-cycle of customers' energy infrastructure needs.
For utility-scale projects, MaxGen delivers complete solar power plant O&M services, including central NERC/CIP monitoring, control and compliance, preventative and corrective maintenance with dedicated onsite staff, system performance optimization, and complete operational reviews and reporting for customers. Our utility-scale customers will continue to appreciate the safety, quality and performance that MaxGen delivers today.
The company also provides ancillary services to its owner, operator, EPC, and OEM customers including module washing, vegetation control, site maintenance, spare parts management, equipment warehousing, and warranty processing.
MaxGen's recent acquisition of operations management software company, Power Factors, extends the service offering further with the highly scalable and bankable operations management platform, Power Factors Insight.

"PF Insight will continue to be available to customers as an independent data and operations platform. In addition, MaxGen will run its entire operations, including monitoring, alerts, work order management, planning & scheduling, and reporting on PF Insight," remarked Joe Brotherton, the SVP of Plant Operations and Maintenance. "PF Insight is already being used by some of the leading renewable energy companies and utilities in the U.S. market, and as the largest independent operator in the US, we expect to gain huge operational advantages with its implementation."

As solar, battery energy storage, and EVs continue to transform the U.S. energy infrastructure landscape, the need for an independent, scalable, and bankable service provider like MaxGen Energy Services is greater than ever. MaxGen now has one of the most experienced operations and maintenance teams in the industry and the market-leading information platform. With its centralized operations capabilities and distributed, highly-skilled field maintenance professionals, MaxGen Energy Services is optimally positioned to safely and reliably operate the increasingly complex network of distributed energy resources being installed across the U.S. power grid.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
