Customer reviews of services offered by contractors, like solar installers, are one of the most important ways potential consumers can learn about service providers. They provide customers with invaluable information on the services a contractor offers including their customer service, installation, maintenance performance, whether they performed services on time and as expected, and more.

“We are continually looking for ways to raise industry standards and promote consumer confidence,” explained Shawn O’Brien, Executive Director, NABCEP. “By working together, we can provide today’s consumers with valuable information about NABCEP Certified Professionals’ commitment to achieving and maintaining high industry standards which will assist consumers during the selection process. We’re confident that consumers who visit to make an informed decision when choosing a renewable energy installation company will see the benefit of selecting NABCEP Certified Professionals and Accredited Companies, and that the value of NABCEP’s certifications will be reflected in their reviews.”

In addition, will create a special section for solar training providers that will include company information, partnerships and accreditations. Find at booth #2863 at Solar Power International.
