Course Description

This free course is intended for anyone involved in day-to-day O&M of a PV system, or responsible for procuring services to conduct O&M on a PV system. The life expectancy of a PV system is generally defined as 25 years or greater. An effective O&M program will ensure that the system performance is optimized throughout its life, will maximize return on investment and will ensure safe and proper functioning of the system.
