As the Solar and Wind industries continue to grow in the Midwest, there are an increasing number of companies entering the industry. It can often be difficult to know how to determine who the most qualified installers are. Fortunately, there is a certification standard which has gained national acceptance as the “gold standard” for Solar Electric, Solar Thermal, and Wind installation – NABCEP.
The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) offers certification and certificate programs to renewable energy professionals throughout North America; programs that have a high level of rigor that ensures that only the most knowledgeable and experienced installers are recognized. Selecting a “NABCEP-Certified Solar Installer” ensures that your project is completed by a contractor or integrator that has demonstrated the highest level of experience and mastery of technical knowledge and building codes in the industry, and has passed the certification exam to prove it.
Microgrid Energy is proud to be among the few in Missouri that are Certified PV Installers. One of our goals is to see the solar industry grow with the highest level of professionalism possible, and that is why we join other quality installers in advocating for wide recognition of NABCEP as the standard for differentiation within the industry.
