(TEMPE, Ariz. May 29, 2018) – Joseph Cunningham, founder and director of operations for Tempe-headquartered Sunny Energy, has earned the solar industry’s leading recognition of installation expertise from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP®), and is now a NABCEP Certified PV Installation Professional.
NABCEP is the most highly respected and well established national certification organization for renewable energy professionals. Having designation as a Certified NABCEP PV Installation Professional helps set Cunningham and Sunny Energy apart from other solar companies as it is widely recognized to be the most important certification of its kind in the solar industry.
PV is short for photovoltaic. PV systems produce electricity from sunlight. Most people have used a solar powered calculator or garden light, and seen solar panels on roadside signs, but PV panels can be configured to produce enough energy to power a home, school, business, or even serve as a small power plant feeding electricity into the grid. As the cost of PV systems has declined sharply over the last few years, more and more households, municipalities, and companies are “going solar.” NABCEP is a mark of quality assurance that the consumer can use to know that they are choosing a qualified contractor.
“We are honored to have earned this designation,” Cunningham said. “Sunny Energy is excited to offer customers the added confidence of knowing that their photovoltaic system installations will be completed to the highest standards in the solar industry, something we have done since our inception.”
“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 have also made a very real commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice. I am delighted to welcome Joseph Cunningham of Sunny Energy to the ranks of the industry’s leading solar professionals.”
