At Solar Power International (Chicago, U.S.), a group of organizations on October 23rd, 2013, announced the formation of the Clean Energy Credentialing Coalition.

CECC aims at demonstrating and promoting the collective importance of third-party quality assessment, and emphasizes the value it brings to building strong and competent renewable energy and energy efficiency markets.

 

Benefits for qualified PV installers

The Coalition will create a campaign to build awareness of the value of credentialing, which can boost consumer confidence in renewable energy, energy efficiency professionals, products and programs.

Through the campaign, installers of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, weatherization products and other home energy efficiency retrofit work can set themselves apart from others who are less qualified.

“For customers to be happy and the industry to thrive, quality must be central to every aspect of renewables and efficiency,” stated Richard Lawrence, executive director of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).

“To have a solar system successfully operate for decades, the components must be reliable and perform as promised, and they must be installed properly by competent personnel. Respected credentialing organizations assure that customers are getting the quality they expect.”
