Advanced Energy to supply SiteGuard to Colorado State University’s 2MW plant


Advanced Energy has partnered with AMEC to provide SiteGuard services for Colorado State University’s 2MW PV solar power plant located in Fort Collins, Colorado under a multi-year agreement. The new solar facility started producing power in December 2009 and will be fully commissioned in early 2010.

The SiteGuard program is designed to significantly increase uptime and reduce levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for entire PV solar array sites. The support program extends to all industry brands of inverters, modules and tracking equipment, and to the entire balance-of-system performance. The program includes SiteGuard O&M to reduce both operation and maintenance costs, as well as SiteGuard PM to manage preventative maintenance across the complete array.
