Origis Energy USA has formed a new wholly owned subsidiary to provide the U.S. solar and energy storage markets with operations, maintenance and asset management services. The new company, Origis Services LLC, will serve Origis’ pipeline and growth as well as provide third party services. Senior solar industry professional, Michael Eyman, will lead the new firm as Managing Director.
Origis Services currently manages a solar portfolio of over 500 megawatts (MWs) with integrated operations and maintenance (O&M) and asset management services. Expansion underway includes an advanced Remote Operations Control Center located in Austin, TX.
Michael Eyman joined Origis Energy in 2018 to organize the internal O&M and asset management team into the new operating unit serving owners of large-scale and distributed generation solar facilities, portfolios, energy storage, and other renewable generating assets. He brings over 20 years of leadership and operations experience and served in previous positions with MaxGen Energy Services and SunPower. Eyman is a retired Commander for the U.S. Navy Reserve, with a proven track record of safety, execution, and the creation of innovative strategies and processes to advance operational excellence.
“We have over a decade of experience ensuring the performance of utility and distributed generation solar plants,” said Guy Vanderhaegen, Chief Executive Officer & President, Origis Energy. “The formation of Origis Services is a natural extension of our track record. We will leverage our inherent economies of scale and expertise to the broader solar and energy storage markets.”
Today’s high performing solar and storage assets depend on high quality, integrated O&M and asset management services. To realize strong Return on Investment (ROI) over 30+ years of asset operation, Origis Services provides 24/7 continuous monitoring services utilizing cloud-based solar enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, a seasoned team for responsive incident resolution and extensive reporting capabilities focused on owner’s requirements.
“Origis is now one of the leading solar and storage developers in the country,” said Michael Eyman, Managing Director, Origis Services. “The same dedication to excellence pervasive in the origination and construction group is how Origis is approaching plant management. Now we will deliver the same focus and proven suite of O&M and asset management services Origis has fine-tuned internally to the broader market.”
