Why It Matters

Putting solar on your home or business is a significant and long-term investment in a technology in which you are likely not an expert, so naturally, you want to feel comfortable and confident in your decision.

Solar Energy Solutions has set out to remove those worries and differentiate itself from the competition by setting a very high and demonstrable bar for training, licensing, and insurance. Ask other companies that you talk to about solar if they meet this bar?

NABCEP Certified 

SES holds 5 NABCEP PV certifications, more than any other company in the region with certification being a critical part of career progression inside the company. You wouldn’t fly with a pilot who had no provable training, so don’t trust your house and solar with its complex and high voltage electrical systems to well meaning amateurs.

NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Professionals) trains, examines and certifies PV installers through rigorous on the job and classroom validation. Merely possessing an electrical license will have provided no solar specific training. The PV Installation Professional (PVIP) Board Certification is considered the gold standard for PV professionals in the renewable energy industry. Recognized and demanded by organizations worldwide, the PVIP Board Certification validates the competence to perform in the role of PV Installation Professional, which encompasses PV design, installation, operations, commissioning, and maintenance.

Electrical Licensing

Unlike nearly every other solar company, SES does not sub-contract out critical design, construction, and electrical work. All work is done by our own 100% dedicated solar experts, not somebody who wires up a couple of installs up a year and then goes back to the day job. Ask other companies that you talk to about solar if they meet this bar or if part-timers will do your work?

SES requires all of its teams to have licensed electricians present on the job; electricians that will have either Journeyman (4 years tested experience) or Master (8 years tested experience) status. In addition to Kentucky, we hold all the required and equivalent licenses for Indiana and its many jurisdictions, Ohio, Illinois, West Virginia, and Tennessee.

Insurance & Bonding

SES, with its residential, commercial, and utility-scale work, has ensured it has considerable insurance coverage for all scales of projects. Insurance coverage includes significant general commercial, auto, workers comp, and umbrella liability. We also have the ability, given our long history of commercial work to self-bond as required.
