New Insurance Partner: Solar Insure
NABCEP is excited to announce a new partnership with Solar Insure to provide insurance coverage to NABCEP Board Certified Professionals and Accredited Companies.

“We chose to partner with NABCEP because of their commitment to expanding renewable energy though their quality credentialing and certification programs,” says Ara Agopian, CEO of Solar Insure, Inc . "Our goal has been to provide solar professionals the best risk management, insurance and safety programs available in the market. We’re confident NABCEP will help us continue to meet that goal.”

For more than 15 years, Solar Insure has provided advanced risk management policies for growing alternative energy companies. Their passion is renewable energy, specifically wind and solar energies. Solar Insure supports large and small solar manufacturers, suppliers and contractors. They have recently expanded their product offerings, and they now provide warranty assumption insurance for solar products and services.
2018 Solar Installer Survey Results
Once again, NABCEP partnered with  EnergySage  for the annual Solar
Installer Survey. ithin the 2018 Solar Installer Survey, we asked NABCEP Board Certified Professionals how they felt the certification has affected their careers, and two-third of installers said the certification had a positive impact. Below is a breakdown of the impact that NABCEP Board Certification had on their careers:
We were also curious about how it affected their income. Based on the results, the total average increase in income from getting NABCEP Board Certified was over $11,000 . However, for the 2/3 of respondents who said their NABCEP Board Certification improved their careers, the average salary increase was almost $20,000 !
