Maintain the Earning Potential of your Solar Assets in the Long Term

To overview

Demand for renewable electricity powered by solar is increasing - but have you thought about how you can extract the most benefit from this market opportunity? 

Repowering your photovoltaic installations by using the latest technology to modernise and optimise your PV plant can considerably improve its availability and production. This will deliver a significant, improved return on your investment. 

In addition to improved plant performance, you will also benefit from a reduction in intervention costs, with latest-generation components and equipment, and new possibilities in terms of operation and maintenance. 

Tap into the expertise available from BayWa r.e. 

Repowering or revamping your PV installations is the key both to unlocking their long-term earning potential and prolonging their service life. 

Why not explore the options for repowering - replacing photovoltaic panels and/or inverters in a solar energy plant currently in operation? Or explore whether revamping a specific element or elements at your installation will deliver long-term benefits?  Our BayWa r.e. experts can be your guide for all your repowering projects, with tailor-made solutions that will be a perfect fit for your needs.

Our technical team in the UK and Ireland has more than 100 years combined experience in developing, managing and operating renewable energy projects, working with customers to build long-term relationships built on trust and transparency.

Our recent repowering projects in the UK are helping our clients to drive and deliver the economical, low-carbon power generation - contributing to carbon reduction targets.
