Apex Solar Power First in Northeast to be Awarded Company Wide NABCEP Accreditation

Apex Solar Power is the first company in New York and New England to receive Company Accreditation from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. They are the 5th in the country to receive this distinction.

GLENS FALLS, N.Y., Dec. 14, 2015 -- Apex Solar Power has achieved a milestone shared by a select few solar companies in the United States: Company-Wide NABCEP Accreditation. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is self-described as "the most respected, well-established, and widely recognized certification organization for North American solar professionals." NABCEP is the standard in the solar industry, and an individual installer must become certified in order to qualify as a NYSERDA eligible installer in New York State.


Apex Solar Power has taken this a step further, and instead of just having 1 installer receive certification, they have completed the process and been awarded company-wide NABCEP Accreditation, becoming the first and only solar installer in the New York/New England area to have achieved this level of excellence.

According to NABCEP's website (www.NABCEP.org) this makes Apex the 5th installer in the United States to have been awarded accreditation.

"Our state is a national leader in solar development, we are proud to have brought that a step further by making Glens Falls and the Capital Region home to the only NABCEP accredited installer in the Northeast," said Ben Sopczyk, Marketing Director for Apex Solar Power. "It's been a year of milestones for us - first with our ranking as the #1 residential solar contractor in NY, and now with this national accreditation... it's been a great year and we could not be happier."

Apex Solar Power is headquartered in Queensbury, New York and has satellite offices in Malone, NY, Syracuse, NY, New Windsor, NY, and Auburn, Massachusetts.

The result of a business partnership between solar thermal and Solar PV professionals Greg Demarse and Stan Dobert, Apex has grown from 2 employees in 2012 to 132 total employees in multiple offices.

Apex was the selected installer for 10 community Solarize programs in the summer of 2015, and was ranked as the #1 Residential Solar PV contractor in New York State, #1 solar thermal installer in NYS and the #25 solar thermal contractor in the country by Solar Power World magazine.

Apex employs a livable wage practice, and pays all employees a minimum of $15 an hour.
