Time is Money

Like all capital investment projects, Renewable energy assets are time-critical, where a lack of manpower can directly impede or delay a project, resulting in a potential increase of overall spend. 

It is impossible for a development company to fully employ all the personnel, when the given project has a defined start and end date without a guarantee of further work.
