Understanding NABCEP – The PV (Photovoltaic) Solar Certification and TrainingPosted on Wednesday, August 10th, 2011 at 11:08 am by Solar Energy USA
According to the NABCEP website, The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners is the “gold standard” for PV (photovoltaic) and solar thermal installation certification. NABCEP is comprised by a group of energy experts, an elected board of renewable energy enthusiasts including leading members of the solar industry.
Thus, their NABCEP PV (photovoltaic) Entry Level Program was designed for those individuals wanting to get into the solar field and expand their knowledge of the fundamental principles of renewable energy, including the application, design, installation and operation of grid-tied and stand-alone PV (photovoltaic) Systems. NABCEP Installer Certification is achieved by passing rigorous testing in electrical standards and system optimization achieved over many, many years of hands on experience. The applicant must then install a high number of systems in order to complete the final certification.
The NABCEP standard was designed as a means to identify qualified installers, instilling confidence of the work performed in the end consumer.
Our business is driven by this expertise and we promise to deliver solar solutions at an affordable price to end consumers, both residential and commercial.
