Now there are twice as many reasons to trust the quality of a Milestone Solar installation.

Milestone Solar’s CEO, Bill Anderson, is now West Virginia’s only solar installer to have earned two of the industry’sNAB1 most prestigious national certifications. With the award of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP™) Solar PV (photovoltaic) Installation Professional Certification and PV Technical Sales Professional Certification, he becomes not only West Virginia’s only solar industry professional holding both prestigious national certifications, but one of only 82 nationwide.

As the cost of solar systems has dropped sharply over the last few years, more and more households, businesses and municipalities are “going solar.” When they do, these two NABCEP marks of quality assure that they’ll be choosing a qualified contractor.

To earn his second NABCEP certification, Anderson had to demonstrate his knowledge of the whole range of multi-craft techniques, skills and abilities required to competently design, install and maintain solar systems – everything from electrical and mechanical system design to job site safety, National Electrical Code compliance, roofing and construction techniques, and system maintenance and troubleshooting.

“One thing you can be assured of when hiring a NABCEP Certified PV Installation Professional is that your project won’t be their first,” said Richard Lawrence, Executive Director of NABCEP.

Anyone who makes the considerable effort required to earn NABCEP certification has documented their training and experience as part of the eligibility process. They’ve also made a very real commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice. I’m delighted to welcome Bill Anderson of Milestone Solar to the ranks of the industry’s leading solar professionals.

Anderson said that the pair of prestigious national certifications

means Milestone can offer our customers twice the added confidence of knowing that their solar system installations will be completed to the solar industry’s highest standards. Our emphasis, and commitment to customers, has always been based on quality – quality materials, quality engineering, and installation techniques that closely follow industry best practices.
