PV Squared Achieves Prestigious NABCEP Company Accreditation

Greenfield Solar Installation Company Is One Of Eight Solar Companies In The Country To Achieve Company Accreditation By North American Board Of Certified Energy Practitioners

 

Greenfield, MA — PV Squared, an employee-owned and Certified B Corp solar installation company headquartered in Greenfield, Massachusetts, has just received Company Accreditation by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABECP).

The accreditation process was itself an opportunity to learn, refine, and grow best practices among a broader community of highly qualified solar installation professionals. “As a local company and a worker-owned cooperative, it’s absolutely essential that we are able to objectively assess the impact we are having in the communities where we work. The NABCEP Company Accreditation provides us with tools to measure that impact. At the end of the day, we’re confident in the work we’ve done,” added Metzger.
