The average price for full-service O&M agreements signed in 2017 equaled $20,800/MW/yr. Tier 2 IPPs and utilities access the lowest pricing at $20,122 per MW/yr and $21,169 per MW/yr. Due to their size, large players have tended to be price makers while smaller asset owners with 500MW or less have been price takers. The O&M Price Index tracks prices and terms for operation and maintenance agreements and is closely linked to the Wind Turbine Price Index. It serves as a benchmarking tool for asset owners and service providers.
