Balarabe, explained that the operation and maintenance plan will feature remote monitoring, a fault alert messaging service, training and a 24 hours maximum response time for system failures.
She said by establishing an operation and management plan for the solar systems, the administration of governor Nasir El-Rufai, is not only protecting investment in public assets but also ushering in a culture of maintenance for sustained improvement in public service delivery.
