Vegetation Management 101

Vegetation Management on Solar Farms, is a critical aspect of the Operations and Maintenance Scope. Typically (as shown in image below) areas between the rows are mowed or cleared, but in some instances, the vegetation management directly under where the racking system is installed are neglected, particularly if the system is mounted close to the ground and mowing access is difficult.

It is critical that Vegetation management across the whole project is consistent, as if weeds and plants (particularly the tracking system are not managed) it can cause damage the racking system, modules and critical electrical infrastructure, leading to a significant drop in system output or worse case system failure.

Tranex Utilities recommends looking at vegetation management holistically and our consultant team can review your site and prepare and implement a tailor-made vegetation management plan to ensure that you have complete peace of mind that your project is performing as it should.
