Hannah Solar's O&M Department Leads the Southeast with Innovative Panel Cleaning Equipment
ATLANTA, Ga. (May 31, 2016) -
Hannah Solar's Operations and Maintenance team continues to lead the Southeast- and so does their equipment. Hannah Solar recently purchased the Southeast's first Bitimec Roboklin panel cleaning machine, which can effortlessly clean 12,000 panels in a day.
Last year, Hannah Solar revamped their O&M department by exploring innovative technologies and expanding their service team to better serve their customers. "Several arrays haven't been cleaned in years," said Hannah Solar CEO Pete Marte, "imagine not washing your car for 5 years-you can't count on rain itself to get all the grit and grime off, especially in the South."
Mary Britton, Director of Service for Hannah Solar, knew the Bitimec machine was the key to protecting their customers' solar investment. "Throughout Hannah Solar's entire southeast portfolio, covering over 100 megawatts, we have seen how caked on dirt, debris and other environmental factors have effected panel and overall system production. We have conducted white paper analysis at several of our sites since the machine has been in operation and results show that cleaning panels increases energy yield by 3-10% depending on the size of the array," said Britton, "We strongly encourage our customers to invest annually in panel cleaning so they continue to receive the return on investment that they expect."
Hannah Solar offers an array of O&M services in addition to panel cleaning, with a full-time dedicated service team of NABCEP certified technicians who can conduct annual system testing, repair and replace panels, troubleshoot, and landscaping.
