Following the lead of Renova Solar, who was awarded the first Company Accreditation by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), more than 50 solar companies have indicated their desire to be accredited and/or have started on the path to receive the designation.
Currently, three companies have met the rigorous standard and are recognized as NABCEP Accredited PV Installation Companies.
“We applaud Renova Solar as the company who led the way to encourage other solar installation businesses to incorporate the highest standards in solar sales and installation,” said NABCEP Executive Director Richard Lawrence. “This accreditation standard is all about consumer confidence in companies that are willing to commit to these best practices.”
