-- Daniel Weinman, President and Chief Executive Officer of PPC Solar, is one 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 Mr. Weinman at the top of his 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. This also makes Daniel Weinman the only NABCEP-Certified PV Technical Sales Professional in Taos County, and this is his second NABCEP certification, he is also a NABCEP-Certified PV Installer.
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. “Passing NABCEP’s PV Technical Sales Exam and achieving certification is personally very satisfying,”
said Weinman. “More important, it means we can offer our customers the added confidence of knowing he or she is being handled by someone who is fully qualified to a full representation of the potential of the proposed PV system.”
To earn his NABCEP certification, Weinman was required to demonstrate his/her knowledge on subjects as diverse as qualifying the customer; 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 are often required to show that they have real-world experience as a lead person on a sales team as well as have a minimum number of hours of advanced 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 Daniel Weinman of PPC Solar to the ranks of the industry’s new standard for sales professionals.”
