SMA: Reasons to repower

Why modernize a PV power plant?

A modernized plant increases yield and reduces operating costs. However, other aspects also speak in favor of repowering your PV power plant:

  • Maintenance costs of older PV projects are increasing
  • Repair costs are rising
  • Manufacturers are no longer in business and cannot supply spare parts
  • Upgrades with new and more efficient inverter technologies offer higher efficiency and include a new factory warranty
  • New analysis and monitoring tools on the market offer greater potential for long-term performance improvement and reductions in operating costs

Fit for the future: repowering for PV power plants

Repowering makes PV Power Plants fit for the Future

Invest and keep operating, or dismantle it? This is not a question you should wait to ask yourself until your PV power plant’s service life is approaching its planned end of productivity. Decreasing yields, component defects or a lack of data security may be reasons to start thinking about repowering a PV power plant even before the estimated end of its lifetime. So what measures can be used to restore and even increase the efficiency of a PV power plant? Read our blog post on this topic.
