SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alectris, a global operations and maintenance (O&M) independent service provider for distributed generation and utility scale solar PV plants in North America and Europe, today announced a new tool for solar asset owners to evaluate their O&M priorities and contractors. Vassilis Papaeconomou, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Alectris, presents the tool for the first time at Solar Power Generation USA in San Diego, CA, during his talk, “Evaluating the quality of your O&M contractor.”

It will assist in the standardization of this process and the industry’s overall best practices development.”
