said Mark McLanahan, vice president and general manager for global services
for SunEdison. "When it comes to asset management, SunEdison is in a unique
position to serve our customers. We are not just a vendor, we are also an
owner/operator of PV solar power plants so we have a first-hand understanding
of our customers' requirements, which allows us to bring innovative solutions
to market."

Investment Grade Monitoring System

The SunEdison ROCs employ sophisticated monitoring and reporting tools to
detect any anomalies in system performance. Technicians can analyse alerts to
diagnose the cause and determine the best course of action. In many cases
issues can be resolved remotely, reducing the need to dispatch technicians.
SunEdison monitors the full range of components and systems within a solar
installation; including weather stations, pyranometers, ambient temperature
sensors, panel temperature sensors, inverters, string combiners, recombiners,
soiling analysis stations and AC subsystems. The ROCs' sophisticated analysis
capabilities allow SunEdison to transform raw data into rich reports that
provide a system-level view of plant performance which helps predict the
potential of a power plant, uncover operational issues, and optimize system

For SunEdison customers, an online monitoring portal provides live access to
an extensive array of system data, including:

  oDetailed tracking of energy production
  oMeasurement of environmental and economic savings
  oFleet, fund, and site views
  oInvoice creation and printing

Proactive Asset Management

Based on plant information collected and analyzed by the ROCs, SunEdison
provides comprehensive services to ensure reliable, high yield operations for
the life of the assets. This starts with field service dispatch through a
sophisticated work order management tool to administer preventative and
corrective maintenance activities. Services also include critical functions
such as supplier relationship management, spare parts inventory management,
warranty claims administration, and wide-ranging financial services on behalf
of project companies.

Additional Services

To reduce the time-consuming burden of billing and incentive reporting the ROC
offers energy production reports to support Performance Based Incentive (PBI)
and Renewable Energy Credit (REC) programs. Additionally the ROC can host
tenant energy billing to support Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
