Operation and maintenance (O&M) of large-scale photovoltaic systems involves highly technical performance monitoring with sophisticated instrumentation and controls.
Solar PV Technicians work on large commercial or utility scale photovoltaic systems. They inspect, evaluate, test, clean, calibrate, and maintain solar module systems, mounting hardware, combiner fuse boxes, inverters, switchgear, circuit breakers, transformers, batteries, data acquisition systems, relays, programmable logic controllers, revenue meters, weather stations, fuel cell equipment, and other AC and DC equipment. As systems increase in size and complexity, the job may entail more operations than maintenance, including sophisticated technical monitoring, control, and performance engineering. O&M techs frequently interact with professional contract personnel on site, and routinely travel between facilities.
