This very competitive and prestigious designation is awarded based on experience and knowledge and assessed through a difficult testing process. What this means for our customers is that Northern Lights Energy brings to every installation a level of professionalism that is widely recognized by the solar industry. Additionally, certification provides our customers access to incentive dollars provided by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to help cover the cost of a solar installation.
To earn NABCEP certification, competence must be demonstrated by passing a rigorous exam that covers multi-craft aspects of being a professional PV installer. Knowledge on subjects as diverse as system design, electrical and job safety, the National Electrical Code, roofing and construction techniques, system commissioning, and troubleshooting must be demonstrated.
