  1. Hello everyone,

    A quick question, what would be considered the must have certification for
    solar panel installations? I am looking at getting into the solar
    technology industry and need to know which route to take when it comes to
    certification and be "recognized" by such certification as having met the
    skills necessary to do solar installations.

    Thanks for the input.

    I would look into NABCEP : North American Board of Certified Energy
    Practitioners certification. See

    The real "must-have" would be a master electrician's ticket. Various PV
    cliques have come up with their own schemes to produce revenue and
    maintain their cliques/exclude people who have not paid them extra, but
    that would be the one that you _really_ need to do electrical work other
    than for yourself, as best I understand it.

    Fortunately, my system is in a state where one can do one's own work on
    one's own system, not that the cliques in question are not trying to
    foil that (to "protect the public" or "line their pockets", depending on
    how one sees it). They have successfully hijacked all systems which get
    the limited state benefit into their own overpriced clutches, for
    instance. They are so overpriced this ends up not mattering to me, from
    what I have found so far (I save far more than the cost of not getting
    the credit by ignoring them as a source for anything, after having
    wasted my time by trying in good faith to spend money locally, if
    possible, and being treated with laughable rudeness and attitude).
