Tucson Solar Company Earns Green Industry's Most Prestigious Certification  

[Tucson, Arizona]— Jeff Shoemaker, owner of local business, Custom Solar and Leisure has earned the industry's leading recognition of expertise as a certified  installer of solar electric systems

[Tucson, Arizona]— Jeff Shoemaker, owner of local business, Custom Solar and Leisure has earned the industry's leading recognition of expertise as a certified  installer of solar electric systems (aka "photovoltaic" or "PV" systems)  from the  North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).  

NABCEP is the most respected and well-established national certification organization for  renewable energy professionals.  Designation as a NABCEP certified solar PV installer is widely recognized to be the most important and meaningful certification of its kind in the renewable energy industry.  
"Receiving the NABCEP's Certified Installer status is very exciting," said Shoemaker.  "More important, this means that we can offer our customers the added confidence of knowing their installation will be performed to the highest standards in the solar industry.  By becoming certified by the NABCEP, we are attempting to set an example to other solar installation companies by insuring premium quality solar installation for the Tucson area."

To earn his NABCEP certification, Shoemaker was required to demonstrate his competence as a solar PV installer by passing a rigorous exam that covers the multi-craft aspects of being a professional PV installer.  He needed to demonstrate knowledge on subjects as diverse as system design, electrical and job safety, the National Electrical Code, roofing and construction techniques, system commissioning, and troubleshooting.  In addition to passing the exam, all certified NABCEP installers are required to show that they have real-world experience as a senior person on an installation crew as well as a minimum number of hours of advanced training.  

"One thing you can be assured of with NABCEP Certified Installers is that your job won't be their first," said Ezra Auerbach, executive director of NABCEP.  "Anyone who makes the considerable effort required to earn NABCEP Installer Certification has been required to document their experience and education as part of the eligibility process.  They have also made a very real commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice.  We are delighted to welcome Jeff Shoemaker of Custom Solar and Leisure to the ranks of the industry's leading solar installers."
