Commissioning is a comprehensive verification process which helps ensure an installed project aligns to its engineering plans and energy predictions. Commissioning can be performed prior to commercial operation and at many stages during the long-term operations of the project. We recommended all or portions of our commissioning process at regular intervals to ensure optimal system integrity for the solar energy facility’s lifespan.

Our PV system commissioning check-list and performance testing serve as an empirical benchmark for future diagnostics. The level of rigor behind our system audits and inspections is unparalleled. Because we are an engineering (link to Design page) and construction (link to Build page) company first, we inspect the system from an engineer’s and contractor’s perspective. Our solar commissioning services are recognized and appreciated by financing institutions, Independent Power Producers, and utility companies. Our commercial and utility scale PV system commissioning activities include:

  • Complete record drawing plan review
  • Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) inspections
  • Site easement and roadway inspections
  • Current and Voltage (IV) curve tracing of all solar array strings
  • Open circuit and short circuit string testing
  • Torque checks on electrical connections and hardware
  • Thermal image scans
  • Visual inspection for proper installation, weathering and workmanship
  • Conductor integrity and identification
  • Inverter performance verification
  • Tracking system performance and calibration verification
  • Meter calibration and inspections
  • Full system performance testing
  • Warranty and performance guarantee reviews
  • Meteorological system testing, calibration and performance validation
  • Performance guarantee validation and long-term system testing
