Solar Team

Greenspeed’s SOLAR TEAM provides Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services for large-scale commercial projects around the Globe. Our commercial, turnkey solar solutions include design and engineering, installation and operation and maintenance services to ensure long-term generation of clean power.


Professional Experience

Your commercial solar power system should provide a multi-year financial return on investment and long-term system performance. In fact, most systems should provide reliable, clean power beyond 25 years. Our customers want the system up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible with minimal impact or disruption to their existing operations.

Our skilled, in-house team of engineers, procurement and logistics professionals, project managers and solar technicians communicate from project conception through completion, so that you reap the benefits of a tightly integrated, experienced team.

When you choose a commercial solar installation specialist for any size project, examine their portfolio carefully. Talk to our customers about Greenspeed’s record of client satisfaction. Greenspeed’s experience with commercial energy solutions projects is a natural extension of our design/build experience of energy services for over 20 years.

Paying Attention to the Details

We focus on the important details, such as:

Engineering

Providing a comprehensive solar feasibility study is the first step towards a successful project. We work closely with your team to define the right solution for your solar electric needs. Every project has its own defined parameters. The location, orientation, shading, equipment selection, electrical rate structures, financial incentives and schedule all have a significant impact on the solar electric system's financial return. It starts with defining a site-specific solution by a professional, technically proficient team, with engineering and installation capabilities.

Procurement

You want the optimal equipment to achieve the solar PV project’s intended goal. We take a product neutral approach to provide the best products for your specific PV system installation – we do not represent, nor are we tied to, specific manufactures. Our procurement professionals have proven experience to deliver product, on schedule, without interruption to the day-to-day activities of your facility.

Construction

The implementation of the design is where the “rubber meets the road.” This is where Greenspeed provides unique and quantifiable value to the success of the project. We understand that this project may be installed on or within an existing facility and take great pride to minimize any disruptions to your operations. Our master, licensed project managers and trained solar technicians will install the solar PV system with safe and proven best practices to include quality assurance and quality control.

Safety

We put safety first. It starts with our designs that incorporate safe and technical best practices to deliver a safe, operable electric system. Greenspeed has the numbers to prove we do. Since inception, Greenspeed Energy has lost zero hours of work time due to injuries. Our Experience Modification Factor, or MOD rate, is below 1.0 and has never exceeded 1.0. Our technicians, foreman and project managers go through training and certification for OSHA-10 and NFPA 70E. All lift operators carry lift training certification cards at all times. We take safety seriously from project conception to project commission with a goal of zero defects to our people or your property.

Logistics

Your solar electric system is intended to produce energy and enhance your business or institution. Each site's construction logistics are researched during the design process and a careful eye to planning ensures that we deliver a quality installation with minimal disruption to normal facility activities. We clearly communicate our logistics plans and show equipment staging, locations of recycling and trash receptacles, employee facilities, and material staging. We work cohesively with your team to communicate a clear action plan.

Commissioning

Properly commissioning your solar electric system is the final and most important phase, of a successful project completion. Our Project Managers follow our commissioning plan and carry out a well-documented test routine to ensure the safety of personnel and property. We understand the importance of documentation and reporting the commissioning results for your peace of mind and ours.

Maintenance

Your newly installed solar electric system is a significant investment and requires periodic maintenance and at times, on-call service to keep the array performing at optimal design intentions that deliver your expected return on investment. Studies have shown that on-going maintenance increases production by 12%. We can tailor a Solar Array Maintenance Plan that best fits your needs. Our service technicians are typically involved in the installation process and are keenly familiar with your array. We provide periodic solar array cleaning, inverter maintenance and trouble shooting services. Each service call follows a defined process to include documentation and record reporting.

Solar Array O&M Service Plans

Greenspeed Energy offers two levels of operations and maintenance service, with varying levels of system management. Our Standard Plan includes solar array cleaning and comprehensive system inspection once per year. Our Premium Plan is our highest service level, it is a comprehensive plan that allows you to sit back and relax - your system is entirely in our hands and under our care.

Emergency Response

Premium Plans
If your PV system stops working or is limping along, how will you know? At our highest level of O&M services, we guarantee an emergency response time to the site to get it operating optimally as fast as possible.

Daily Solar Energy Monitoring

Premium Plans
Your photovoltaic systems operation is transparent. You will receive an immediate notice from our network operations center (NOC) if any unexpected changes to solar energy production occur. Our monitoring center will check that daily solar energy production meets expectations.

Array Cleaning

Premium and Standard Plans
Regular solar array cleaning and debris removal protects the photovoltaic array and ensures your return on investment. During periodic solar array cleanings, we may find old tennis shoes or those missing socks that no one seems to ever find, which may cover solar cells or result in damaged modules. On average, regular solar array cleaning will increase annual solar energy production by five to ten percent.

Visual Inspections

Premium and Standard Plans
Your ground-mount solar array needs to have proper vegetation management and water drainage over time to maintain optimal output. Roof-mount solar arrays require periodic inspection of the rooftop membrane and sealing around any roof penetrations. We visually inspect for anything that could adversely impact your return on investment.

System Testing

Premium and Standard Plans
We oversee a four-point preventative maintenance testing of your inverters that is conducted by factory-trained technicians from the manufacturer. Regular inverter maintenance ensures continuous, safe operation by verifying proper cooling to the electronics and a proper weather-tight seal against environmental elements.

Quarterly Report

Premium and Standard Plans
You need to know what is happening with your investment at all times. After we visit your site and perform any activity, we deliver a report of all findings along with site pictures and any recommendations.
