Duke Energy Renewable Services Designated A Top Quality O&M Provider


Duke Energy Renewable Services is a top quality operations and maintenance (O&M) provider highly capable of performing all O&M service activities for wind and solar energy clients, according to the largest independent technical advisor on renewable energy in the world.

DNV GL recently completed an independent assessment of Duke Energy Renewable Services, covering 10 key areas ranging from availability and production performance to company financial resources.

The DNV GL technical advisor visited wind sites and offices, conducted customer interviews, interviewed Duke Energy staff and technicians and evaluated operations data. In each case, the company scored in the high capability range.

“We are always excited to find ways to improve our service offerings,” said Jeff Wehner, vice president of Duke Energy Renewable Services. “This assessment helped us do just that, and it also confirmed that Duke Energy Renewable Services is a top-tier service provider in the wind industry.”

“It is our hope that asset owners, lenders and other vested parties have access to comprehensive information about O&M service providers and self-operators to support business decisions as industry best practices continue to evolve,” said Kevin Smith, head of Asset Management and Operating Services for DNV GL.

Duke Energy Renewable Services, an organization originating from Duke Energy’s 2012 acquisition of Minnesota-based Outland Energy Services, has experience operating nearly 4 GW of wind assets.
