OPERATION & MAINTENANCE   

We are honored to maintain all of the solar at US Marine Corp Base Camp Pendleton & other US military bases.

We have a specific expertise in O&M.  Is your system running a peak efficiency? Photovoltaic solar systems are comprised of many components, including: solar panels, inverters, disconnects, meters, as well many connections and wiring runs. If any link in this chain stops working at its peak, your solar energy system will under produce. For a minimal fee, abcSAGE will come out and conduct a thorough written assessment of your system including Drone photography (or video), and thermal imaging.  This assessment will show what your system should be producing based on the components, orientation, tilt, and other factors.

QUALITY AUDITS

Do you have a system that was installed by another company that has gone out of business or lacks excellent customer service? If you are concerned about the production of your solar energy system and would like and audit.

MONITORING PACKAGES

If your solar system does not include remote monitoring, there may be an opportunity to add a solution.  Monitoring systems make it easy to assess if your system is operating a peak efficiency.  abcSAGE can add a monitoring solution to your existing solar system, make the necessary connections at your home and activate your monitoring through your internet service.  After that, our team will also have access, if you desire, to check your system for its functionality, often eliminating the need for service calls.
