Oct. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Hudson, MA— Mark Durrenberger, Founder and Co-Owner of local business New England Breeze Solar, and Kristen Ferguson, Solar System Designer, are two of the first solar professionals in the country to pass the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Photovoltaic (PV) Technical Sales Exam.  This achievement sets the solar system designing team at the top of their profession. NACBEP’s new certification has been developed to ensure quality assurance throughout the entire sales process and, as such, offer consumers a new level of confidence when they seek quotations, proposals, and energy and financial production estimates for potential solar electric projects.

NABCEP is the most respected and well-established national certification organization for renewable energy professionals. Designation as a NABCEP-Certified PV Technical Sales Professional is an important and meaningful certification in the renewable energy industry.

“I’m pleased NABCEP now offers the PV Technical Sales Certification,” said Durrenberger. “Customers who work with a NABCEP Technical Sales certificant have the added confidence of knowing that they are working with a qualified professional who is capable of accurately representing the potential of the solar system.”  Durrenberger recently put his solar system design skills to work to ensure the unparalleled success of the MassCEC Solarize Mass pilot program. Over sixty Harvard households have signed up to install solar panels as part of the program.

To earn the NABCEP certification, Durrenberger and Ferguson were required to demonstrate their knowledge on subjects as diverse as site analysis; conceptual design; financial costs, incentives, and savings; financial benefit analysis and financing; non-financial benefit analysis; performance analysis; and proposal preparation. In addition to passing the exam, NABCEP-Certified Technical Sales Professionals show that they have real-world experience as a lead person on a sales team and have completed advanced technical training.

“One thing you can be assured of with NABCEP-Certified PV Technical Sales Professionals is that your sale won’t be their first,” said Ezra Auerbach, executive director of NABCEP. “Anyone who makes the considerable effort required to earn NABCEP PV Technical Sales Certification has been required to document his/her experience and education as part of the eligibility process. They have also made a very real commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice. We are delighted to welcome Mark Durrenberger and ivarc Kristen Ferguson of New England Breeze Solar to the ranks of the industry’s new standard for sales professionals.”
