California-based REC Solar has announced that its operations and maintenance (O&M) business has surpassed 175 MW under contract.
The company says this milestone represents a 12-fold increase in O&M business since 2009 and reflects surging market demand. Recent O&M deals include a 13 MW system in California.
Al Bucknam, REC Solar's CEO, says," Over nearly 17 years of developing, installing and maintaining more than 400 commercial systems, REC Solar has developed a wealth of best practices to help everyone from national retailers to family farms get more out of their systems."
"REC Solar's high-quality services help customers maintain, and even increase, the value of their PV systems over time," adds Mike Borger, senior portfolio manager at REC Solar." For example, we recently boosted the performance of a customer's five-year-old 10 MW rooftop portfolio above levels achieved even at the very beginning of the system's life span."
