The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) announced a strategic partnership with Solar Insure, Inc. to provide insurance coverage to NABCEP Board Certified Professionals and Accredited Companies. This is a unique partnership that merges NABCEP’s expertise providing quality assurance within the renewable energy market with Solar Insure’s vast experience providing advanced risk management policies for growing alternative energy companies.
Solar Insure specializes in providing insurance and risk transfer solutions for the renewable energy sector. Through this arrangement, Solar Insure will provide insurance solutions for NABCEP Board Certified Professionals and use NABCEP certification as an underwriting qualification.
“In our experience with strategic partnerships like this, it’s crucial that we partner with companies that truly understand the renewable energy industry,” said Shawn O’Brien, Executive Director of NABCEP. “With their 15 years in the industry, Solar Insure has a more profound understanding of the industry than other potential partners, which is why we’re excited to work with them to provide insurance coverage at affordable rates to our Board Certified Professionals. We’re deeply committed to quality assurance in the industry, and we’re excited to partner with a company like Solar Insure that recognizes the level of quality Board Certified professionals bring to the table.”
“We chose to partner with NABCEP because of their commitment to expanding renewable energy through their quality credentialing and certification programs,” says Ara Agopian, CEO of Solar Insure, Inc. “Our goal has been to provide solar professionals the best risk management, insurance, and safety programs available in the market. We’re confident NABCEP will help us continue to meet that goal.”
