Our team includes NABCEP-certified solar installers

Published December 11, 2018

NABCEP stands for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, and it’s the most respected, well-established and widely recognized national certification organization for professionals in the field of renewable energy. LightWave Solar employs more NABCEP-certified solar installers, sales people and engineers than any other solar company in the Southeast.

In late 2018, Project Consultant, Justin Huff, obtained a full NABCEP PV Technical Sales Certification, and Matt Duncan, also Project Consultant, earned the same NABCEP solar certification last spring.

Jack, Matt and Justin join fellow NABCEP-certified team members Steve Johnson, Karl Jaeger, JP Plumlee, Matt Pelerossi, Daniel Hodge and Billy Jones, totaling 9 full NABCEP solar certificate holders on staff at LightWave Solar. LightWave Solar now employees three NABCEP-certified solar sales professionals and five NABCEP-certified solar installers and one NABCEP-certified design specialist.

“I’ve always believed 3rd party solar certification is important for us,” says LightWave Solar Founder Steve Johnson, the 2nd NABCEP solar certifcate holder in Tennessee.

NABCEP certificate holders must meet training and work experience criteria as well as pass a rigorous exam.

Since 2006, LightWave Solar is committed to providing custom solar PV solutions that are designed and installed for the long haul. Our NABCEP achievements set us apart from other solar companies in the Southeast.
