Alba Energy installers receive NABCEP certificationadmin
Alba Energy, one of the largest solar companies in Texas, is proud to announce that Mark McManus and Alona Pavlenko have passed the NABCEP PV Installation Professional exam, the industry’s most prestigious certification. Designation as a NABCEP PV Professional is widely recognized to be the most important and meaningful certification of its kind in the solar industry.
Today, there are many people employed in the solar industry in Texas, all vying for solar customers’ hard-earned dollars. As solar panel installations in America are becoming more affordable and more accessible, now more than ever it’s important to double-check that the solar installer has the proper training certifications and credentials.
To earn their NABCEP certifications, these Alba employees were required to first document relevant education and experience. Then they had to pass a rigorous exam that covers the breadth of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to competently perform a solar site assessment, conduct performance and financial analysis, develop a preliminary system design, and prepare a detailed sales proposal for the customer. The exam assesses knowledge on subjects as diverse as financial incentives, utility bills and rate structures, electric load analysis, fundamentals of electrical and mechanical system design, and PV system types and components.
“One thing you can be assured of when hiring a NABCEP Certified Professional is that your project won’t be their first,” said Graeme Walker, Founder and CEO of Alba Energy. “Anyone who makes the considerable effort required to earn NABCEP certification has documented their training and experience as part of the eligibility process. They have also made a very real commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice. I am delighted to welcome Mark McManus and Alona Pavlenko of Alba Energy to the ranks of the industry’s leading solar professionals.”
