You have Solar power, now maintain it
A critical component to maximizing your sunshine power is making sure you have a solid operation and maintenance agreement. This is especially the case for commercial solar energy systems, where you as a business owner, project manager, developer, or investor have made a significant investment in renewable energy.

In addition to Operating and Maintenance, we design and install turnkey commercial solar-powered systems throughout Minnesota and the Midwest, provide design, engineering, procuring, and construction, and help secure financing, zoning, and utility grid interconnect agreements.
What is an Operating + Maintenance Agreement?
A good solar energy Operation and Maintenance (O+M) agreement:
- Optimizes your solar panel system’s ability to generate power
- Protects your assets, reduces risks
- Ensures governmental and utility grid requirement compliance and
- Clearly, transparently spells out exactly what you get in the agreement
O&M agreements typically address preventive maintenance, including routine inspection, wear and tear, checkups, and servicing of equipment; condition-based maintenance, with real-time monitoring and preventing downtime; and corrective maintenance that includes reactive repair if there is a breakdown of equipment.
“Having peace of mind that our solar array is functioning at peak performance is really incredible. CCE once called to tell me that one of our panels was underperforming and that their team was heading over with a replacement panel the next day. Incredible customer service!” – Terrie Wheeler, Business Owner
