ESA Renewables Initiates Solar Power Production Guarantee Program for O&M Division

New program guarantees specific monthly energy production for solar energy generating systems under an ESA operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement

ESA Renewables, (ESA), a leading turnkey solar solutions provider, announced the launch of their Solar Power Production Guarantee. This new program guarantees specific monthly energy production for solar energy generating systems under an ESA operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement. Should the photovoltaic system fail to meet ESA's annual guaranteed power production levels, ESA will compensate the solar farm owners the difference between guaranteed and actual energy generated.


"ESA is the only company to offer a solar power production guarantee of this type," said Jeffrey Burkett, President of ESA Renewables. "We stand behind our solar energy projections whether or not we constructed or commissioned the solar farm."

Once an asset manager contracts with ESA for O&M, engineers will visit the solar farm and perform a complete audit and analysis. To make projections for future production levels and guarantee that rate on return, ESA will analyze current and historic data including energy production levels, panel and inverter compatibility, ratios, high efficiencies, tilt of panels and weather variants.

Upon completion of the audit, ESA will make any necessary system upgrades and install their renewable energy Monitoring System. The company will then chart projected production levels and execute a guarantee with the facility owners to meet these expectations. Should a system fail to reach projected levels, for any reason, ESA will compensate the renewable energy plant owners the variance between the two numbers based on a set cost per kilowatt hour (kWh).

"Our cutting edge Monitoring System, Power Production Guarantee Program and commitment to achieving maximum energy production sets ESA apart from other service providers. Whether your power plant is two, five or ten years old, ESA can help you maximize your ROI, continued Burkett."

ESA's proprietary monitoring and control system is used to manage O&M services. The monitoring system can be integrated into any renewable energy installation allowing plant owners and operators access to simplified, centralized, reliable and secure historical and real-time data from the power plant. Effective monitoring reduces PV system downtime, increases performance and allows operators to make informed decisions as to O&M servicing. ESA's monitoring solution also automatically alerts system managers of events to allow for quick response, resulting in maximum energy output with minimal expenses.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
