Are installers certified? 

There is not a state certification for solar installers. Several installers have become NABCEP certified (North American Board of Certified Energy Practioners). This national certification requires coursework through accredited training programs, designing and installing a specified number of solar installs, and passing a professional technical exam.

You can find Me2 Solar Contractors that are NABCEP certified, by looking for this logo:

How do I choose an installer? 

Take time to ask questions of a potential solar installer BEFORE committing to buying a solar electric or solar thermal system.  These questions can help protect the end-user from potential hazards and liabilities associated with having a solar energy system installed on their building or home.

How much will solar cost? 

The potential cost of a solar system varies depending on the building or home, shading issues, accessibility to roof, condition of structure (or upgrades needed), and bids will vary depending on the installer.
