SOLAR PV VEGETATION MAINTENANCE

Optimizing Solar PV Plant Performance with AutoMow 

WHITE PAPER

By Bri Bruce (Marketing Manager, AutoMow)

 

Though the topic is often overlooked in comparison to other plant concerns, vegetation control is an important consideration for utility-scale PV plant operation and maintenance. Unchecked vegetation growth can lead to shading of the panels, which in turn decreases the plant’s productivity. Even a small amount of shading can significantly reduce the performance of the entire solar photovoltaic system. Loss of generated energy equates to loss of income for the solar plant owner or operator, so vegetation maintenance cannot be underestimated.

Managing vegetation can be an ongoing and expensive task; however, AutoMow slope mowers by Spider were designed as a cost-effective method to keep solar PV vegetation under control. AutoMow not only makes solar PV plant mowing easier, more efficient, and safer, but the 2SGS model is specifically designed for solar vegetation maintenance, helping PV plant owners and operators maximize the lifetime value of the plant.

This white paper provides a brief summary on the benefits of maintaining a solar plant with AutoMow.
