Radian Generation expands solar Operations & Maintenance and field service capabilities across the country
Expansion responds to growing need for boots-on-the-ground solar asset management and services capabilities
SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 14, 2015 – Radian Generation (RadianGEN), an industry-leading provider of comprehensive solar asset management services, today announced the expansion of its field service and operation and maintenance (O&M) capabilities in California, Massachusetts and North Carolina with dedicated staff in both the eastern and western U.S.
RadianGEN’s added services come in response to the growing demand for more expertise in the field as solar power investors and operators continue to expand. RadianGEN currently provides asset management services for more than 300 megawatts in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean Islands. RadianGEN was founded to help owners optimize their operating power plants financially and technically.
“There is a growing synergy between the proactive asset management we do on behalf of owners and the techniques we can utilize to improve the performance of the physical assets. This has led RadianGEN to take a more active role in providing boots-on-the-ground field services in a growing number of geographies,” says Chad Sachs, CEO of Radian Generation.
Demand for O&M services is accelerating as the installed base of solar projects grows, operating fleets age and the complexity of management increases with leading equipment suppliers and EPC firms changing their activities in the sector. RadianGEN affiliates recently signed O&M contracts with leading owners in California and Massachusetts to provide preventative maintenance, corrective maintenance, and emergency services to capitalize on the growth in the O&M sector.
RadianGEN’s Director of Field Services Seth Cooper leads the field service team. He has 15 years of experience in the solar sector, having formerly worked at EPC and O&M providers such as HelioPower and SolarCraft. He has deep experience in the C&I distributed generation and residential areas with emphasis on West Coast markets.
“I was excited to join the RadianGEN team and become a part of its vision for the future of the asset management market,” Cooper says. “Our company focuses on optimizing operations for its customers and there is a real commitment to the field service role. The processes and IT systems that we have put in place for monitoring, reporting, and managing the ongoing performance of assets dramatically help the field service team offer high quality, reliable, and competitively priced maintenance services.”
Radian also recently hired Mike Kania as head of field services for the East Coast to manage the field technicians that RadianGEN has in North Carolina and Massachusetts. Kania has led construction and maintenance crews for renewable energy projects for the past 15 years. Based in North Carolina, he formerly worked at Strata and Solar Power Systems and he has significant experience having led the construction activities for over 150 megawatts.
“I look forward to helping RadianGEN continue to grow in the East Coast markets. I was attracted to Radian’s strong emphasis on long-term performance and their dynamic team,” Kania says.
“We are excited to have Seth and Mike, two industry leaders, join our growing team,” Sachs says. “By adding direct O&M activities to our service offering, we can provide customers with a truly comprehensive solution with cost efficiencies and greater accountability.”
