PV Installer Certification
The NABCEP PV installer certification is a voluntary certification that provides a set of national standards by which PV installers with skills and experience can distinguish themselves from their competition. Certification provides a measure of protection to the public by giving them a credential for judging the competency of practitioners. It is not intended to prevent qualified individuals from installing PV systems nor to replace state licensure requirements.

With so much information available on solar power, the real facts are sometimes obscured by myths!
Myth #1: Solar is only good in warm climates.
The average temperature in a climate region does not have an effect on solar panels. In fact, solar panels are actually slightly more efficient at producing electricity in cold temperatures. So even if you live in a colder climate that is further north, you still get enough sunlight that solar panels will work. Surprisingly, Germany, a northern country not generally known for sunny skies, is the world leader in solar photovoltaic energy with over 9,000 Megawatts. That’s almost enough to cover the roofs of 2 million U.S. houses! So next time you hear this myth feel free to point out that just because an area is cold or further north, that does not mean that solar panels won’t work well.
Myth #2: You still need fossil fuel energy as a backup even after you install solar panels.
Residential solar panels these days are almost always connected to the electric grid. The electricity generated by the solar panels powers your house and any extra electricity is fed back into the electric grid. This actually spins your electric meter backward! Most importantly, because your home remains connected to the electrical grid, you can continue to rely on electricity from your local utility at night or on cloudy days when the solar panels are not generating maximum power. So as long as you install the very common grid-tie solar systems, you do not need a fossil-fuel source as a backup.
Myth #3: Going solar means going without modern conveniences.
You don’t have to give up your modern conveniences to go solar. Your home will remain connected to the electrical grid and your solar panels will simply offset the amount of electricity you need from the grid. Thus, you have all the power you need night and day, don’t need batteries, and can enjoy all your current conveniences without paying for high electric bills. So, you’ll have a more comfortable home AND realize savings.
Myth #4: Solar power is not ready for mass consumption.
This has probably been one of the most harmful myths as it causes homeowners to wait to install solar. Decades of technological progress and billions of dollars of research have given us solar energy technology that is proven and reliable. Moreover, government and utility-backed programs are available today to make solar adoption very affordable for just about any homeowner or business. The incentives available from the government (both federal and state) and from your local electrical utility can save you up to 70%!
Myth #5: Making solar panels takes more energy than it could ever produce.
A report by the National Renewable Energy Lab shows solar photovoltaic panels actually payback the energy used to produce the panels in 1 to 4 years depending on the type of panel. Because solar panels last at least 30 years, PV systems will provide at minimum 26 to 29 years of pollution-free electricity for your home!
