SolarPower Europe, together with the South African solar PV association, have launched Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Best Practice Guidelines. The report builds on SolarPower Europe’s European O&M Best Practice Guidelines (v.4.0) and adapts key recommendations to the South African context.
South Africa has the continent’s most developed solar PV market. As its fleet of power plants age, proper “health care” is becoming an increasingly important aspect when looking to consistently meet performance expectations. These guidelines reflect the market and business conditions in South Africa, while supporting South African solar stakeholders in improving the quality of their O&M segment.
