The process to become a solar installer mostly depends on where an individual wants to install residential solar systems. Becoming a solar energy professional sometimes requires a state license specific to solar. In some cases it may only require an electrician’s license. Each state regulates their own solar installation and safety process, and each state’s regulations or rules are slightly different. Your state’s energy department website will list the official licensing requirements. However, there are nationally-recognized certifications, such as those offered by NABCEP, that can help give you an edge wherever you are located.
