As home services go, solar energy installation is becoming both popular and more widely offered, certainly across the Carolinas. Deployment of solar technology has increased steadily, even rapidly, in our communities from 2010 up to now. Solar installation companies like Renu Energy Solutions have helped make this possible, with specially trained, experienced staff and a focus on high-quality work and customer service. Yet, solar installation can be technical and mysterious to most potential customers.
The landscape in our region over time has evolved – utility and state incentives have come and gone, and some solar installers have stood the test of time while others that used to be active in the area no longer are. So it’s now as important as ever that the solar customer in our region can be confident and empowered as they shop for and select a solar installer to perform a job for them.
That’s why we welcome the opportunity to sign onto the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association’s solar installer code of conduct. Certain standards and rules should apply to all solar installers in our area, to create a stable starting point on which our industry can stand.
You can familiarize yourself with the code of conduct set forth here. We encourage you to remind friends and family to be sure to make sure the solar installer they choose can point to their appropriate credentials and certifications – like the NABCEP qualification for solar installers and a general contractor’s license in your state.
