Tucson, Arizona, April 8, 2021 – -.ABCO Energy, Inc. (OTC Pink: ABCE), the Arizona provider of integrated energy solutions, is pleased to announce the addition of the solar asset management business to its portfolio of services and construction business. ABCO manages and repairs systems for its own customers over the past twelve years and has been seeing a tremendous increase in request from customers who have lost their solar installers from the economic ravages of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“ABCO has received calls from commercial project owners in several Western states that have requested ABCO’s assistance to revive or maintain their solar assets. Many owners of multimillion dollar projects are scrambling for managers because of the large numbers of bankruptcies that have plagued the solar construction industry. Over many years ABCO has been doing the very business that survival has now allowed them to capitalize on with this new market for ABCO.
Solar asset management companies are growing rapidly all over the industry because many solar assets are reaching midlife and starting to need repairs. Inverters often start failing at ten years and many weather related hazards befall the assets. Wind, hail, lightning and fire have often created a need for intense management and ABCO has been taking on these projects. System removal and replacement for roof repairs and other needs has grown over 400% in the past year for ABCO and large system management and repairs has grown even more.
The solar industry will see $16 billion of unplanned repairs over the next five years. Annual solar plant operations and maintenance (O&M) costs will double from nearly $4.5 billion in 2019 to over $9 billion in 2024 according to new research from Wood Mackenzie, the 100-year-old international energy consulting group.
“The O & M Companies that manage these assets will reap the benefits of these repair billings and the recurring annual maintenance revenue” says Mr. Shorey, President of ABCO Energy. ABCO is already growing in this industry segment and the future is bright.
