Speeding the Energy Transition

Mark Liffman, CEO of Omnidian | Solar Asset Management with a Performance Guarantee | #78

Installing solar energy systems in our homes and businesses is a good first step. But how do we keep those solar farms up and running?

Is there a solar asset management service that can monitor your system, remotely diagnose problems and send a technician when necessary?

Better yet, is there a service that offers a performance guarantee?
