415V to 33kV Electrical Maintenance, Landscaping & Panel cleaning Solar O&M

Operating efficiently = better financial returns

Receiving the anticipated financial returns on a solar PV investment demands a low cost but carefully targeted ongoing electrical maintenance regime. Orta Solar have developed complete UK based Solar PV O&M competitively priced maintenance packages and actively manage many small and multi-megawatt investor owned PV installations.

Smaller systems mostly require little more than an annual documented condition inspection, a clean and alarm monitoring to spot & report back problems as they arise. Larger Solar PV Parks that we operate demand full time electrical maintenance staff to make regular preventative visits and to be on call on a permanent basis.
