NABCEP Certification

Choosing the right contractor to install a solar energy system on your home or business plays a big part in the overall success of the project. An ever-growing number of consumers, incentive programs, employers, insurers and bid documents are insisting on NABCEP Certificants for their projects. They recognize the value and peace of mind that comes with hiring individuals with this professional accomplishment.

The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) offers certifications that are widely recognized as the "gold standard" for renewable energy installers. Certification is achieved when individuals who have specialized solar training and on-the-job experience pass a very rigorous exam.

When you hire a contractor with NABCEP Certified Installers leading the crew, you can be confident that you are getting the job done by solar professionals with the "know-how" that you need. All Solar Direct Technicians train to meet NABCEP standards, working towards certification.


The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is a volunteer board of renewable energy stakeholder representatives that includes representatives of the solar industry, NABCEP certificants, renewable energy organizations, state policy makers, educational institutions, and the trades. Each member of the board was chosen because of his or her experience and involvement in the solar energy industry.

NABCEP's mission - to support, and work with, the renewable energy and energy efficiency industries, professionals, and stakeholders - is intended to develop and implement quality credentialing and certification programs for practitioners.

NABCEP's goal is to develop voluntary national certification programs that will:

• Promote renewable energy;
• Provide value to practitioners;
• Promote worker safety and skill; and
• Promote consumer confidence

NABCEP is committed to providing a certification program of quality and integrity for the professionals and consumer/public it is designed to serve. Professionals who choose to become certified demonstrate their competence in the field and their commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice.
