Solar Installation Certification
We wanted to take a moment to put our fearless leader Corey Yates in the spotlight yet again. We’re proud to announce that Corey is now a NABCEP Certified PV Installation Professional.
A non‐profit organization governed by a board of directors consisting of volunteer representatives of the solar industry, NABCEP certificants, renewable energy organizations, state policy makers, educational institutions, and the trades, the NABCEP is the nation’s most respected national certification organization for renewable energy professionals. This certification is one of the most honored of its kind in the solar industry.
Short for photovoltaic, PV systems harness sunlight to generate electricity. You may have seen solar powered phone booths at Audubon Park or even solar powered lighting brightening up walkways in your neighbors’ yards, but PV solar panels are perhaps most recognized when they’re placed atop a home. There, they work as your own private power plant.
In recent years, the cost of solar paneling has dropped significantly while incentives have increased. Now, a home equipped with PV panels can expect to re-sale for up to $15,000 more due to the perk of solar power.
When you’re considering going solar, you’ll want to ensure that the installers that you hire are going to do the job right. The NABCEP certification is a mark of quality assurance that you can count on. It means that Corey has gone well above and beyond normal training and inspection to join the ranks of the top solar installers in the nation.
In order to obtain the coveted certification, Corey documented relevant education and experience related to PV system installation. Afterwards, he was subjected to a rigorous exam that covered the breadth of knowledge, skills, and abilities required to competently design, install, and maintain PV systems. The exam assesses knowledge on subjects as diverse as electrical and mechanical system design, job site safety, the National Electrical Code, roofing and construction techniques, and system maintenance and troubleshooting. Naturally, he passed with flying colors.
“One thing you can be assured of when hiring a NABCEP Certified PV Installation Professional is that your project won’t be their first,” said Richard Lawrence, Executive Director of NABCEP. “Anyone who makes the considerable effort required to earn NABCEP certification has documented their training and experience as part of the eligibility process. They have also made a very real commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice. I am delighted to welcome Corey Yates of Sunlight Contractors to the ranks of the industry’s leading solar professionals.”
