Micro-Utility Operations &
Costs Are Easily Handled

Where to Invest[/titlezone]

Unlike other income properties that come with time-consuming and costly maintenance schedules, running a micro-utility is simple.

Operating Costs Covered By Solar Revenue

Micro-utility operating costs consist primarily of paying for preventative maintenance, cleaning, and property insurance. Fortunately, these costs are paid annually by project revenue. The typical costs include:

Regular Inspection and Cleaning:

Twice a year, inspect the electrical connections, make repairs, and clean the panels.

Inverter Replacements:

Owners can optionally set up a reserve fund from cash flows to budget for inverter replacement after the 10-year warranty has expired.

24/7 Monitoring:

Using a remote monitoring system, you can keep a close watch on your solar system to monitor its performance and ensure it’s producing as much clean energy as possible.

Emergency System Maintenance:

Though rare, occasionally a solar system will trigger a remote alarm indicating a problem with the solar production. Most such problems can be covered by equipment warranties.


It is wise to carry separate property insurance for your micro-utility, just in case the building let’s theirs lapse.

All of these tasks can be outsourced to a solar maintenance service. Greenzu will coordinate these service contracts upon request.
