About Solar O&M South Africa

South Africa is quickly becoming a world leader in the use of photovoltaic technology in utility scale facilities to bolster power supply. This comes in response to the depletion of coal reserves, drive to be more environmentally friendly and the desire to have a guaranteed domestic long term energy resource. Solar power is rapidly becoming the go to solution under the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programs (REIPPPs) program, especially PV solutions due to the reduction on panel cost by approx. 80% since 2009.

South Africa has 1484 Mega Watts of PV solar power installed which represents about 65% of Africa’s entire cumulative PV capacity. This has increased by 157.5MW as part of REIPPP window 3 and an expected 813MW as part of window 4 (4a ad 4b). Every single panel installed needs to be operated to full capacity to avoid Eskom penalties and investor fall out. This means that operation and maintenance work is a vital expense for all solar facilities.

Solar O&M South Africa will gather operations and maintenance specialists from EPC, and O&M service providers, solar facility owners, investment banks, international and local experts and technology providers. The aim is to create a professional platform for the solar O&M sector that will improve the quality and standard of the work for the benefit of the industry as well as importing fresh new ideas from the local market and other countries that may be facing similar challenges.
