STUDY - DESIGN
Petrolina Solar offers a complete package of services for each PV system, starting with a techno-economic study and design of the system, proceeding with licensing and PV system installation, and continuing on with technical support after the completion of the system. Our highly trained staff offers comprehensive solutions and studies that meet the actual needs of every consumer. Each study includes a technical and economic part. The technical part conducted through specialized simulation program which calculate the potential energy production of the PV system, with defined coordinates and orientation. The economic study takes into account the cost of the PV system and all other incurred costs, and calculates its amortization time, the savings that will be made each year, the return on investment and other useful financial information. All this information is delivered to the client, at a meeting, where these reports are analysed and explained in detail.
Petrolina Solar also provides to each interested customer a free on-site consultation visit to evaluate the location, to take measurements of the available space and to record any potential obstacles. This is used to determine the optimal layout and design of the PV system for each case.
Petrolina Solar undertakes the entire licensing/approval process for the PV system to the competent authorities, for any size and type of PV system. The client needs to provide the Company with some required documents such as the title deed, the building permit for the premises, a topographic plan, and EAC electricity bills for 1 year. After examining each case individually, our staff may request some additional documents to complete the application which will be submitted to the competent authorities.
The excellent technical know-how of the Petrolina Solar staff, which stems from its long-term experience, makes it capable of undertaking the installation of any kind of PV system. All staff are fully trained and specialized in installing PV systems on flat and inclined roofs, on the ground and on any type of industrial roof. The technical staff that carry out the installations are certified by internationally recognized educational centres and all installations are implemented in accordance with the required international standards. All technicians-installers are certified to work at a height and always follow the Company's health and safety plan. For Net-Billing projects, our company engineers prepare a health and safety plan for each installation describing the potential hazards and precautions that must be taken by all parties involved in the installation. The safety of the Petrolina Solar employees and of all the parties involved is of vital importance for our Company.
MAINTENANCE AND SUPERVISION
Petrolina Solar undertakes the supervision, maintenance and technical support of the PV system after its installation and operation. Technical support after the operation of the PV system is very important for our Company. We want our customers to be happy and confident about their choice for all the years their PV system will be in operation.
Continuous online monitoring of almost all PV systems in real time, by both the owners and our engineers, ensures the uninterrupted operation of each system by identifying any potential failures that may lead to a reduction in production. In this way anything that may arise is solved and corrected promptly, minimizing the loss of energy generated by the system.
PV systems require minimal maintenance. A periodic cleaning of the PV modules to allow for maximum absorption of solar irradiation and a periodic inspection of their electrical equipment is all they require. Petrolina Solar has a technical team and the appropriate equipment to clean PV modules and inspect all electrical equipment. We also offer our customers the option of a maintenance contract. Through this the Company has the responsibility to monitor the production of the PV system and for its maintenance, whenever necessary, to maintain the optimal operation of the system.
