In the first program of its kind in Arizona, 32 residential solar installers became the first to achieve the designation of Qualified Solar Installer (QSI) from Arizona Public Service Co. (APS), the utility says. These installers have passed a series of technical, professional and administrative courses, hold the appropriate licenses with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, and have achieved high customer satisfaction ratings.
The QSI designation allows residential customers to feel comfortable that they have selected a solar installer that is technically competent, understands APS' policy and procedures and has demonstrated exemplary customer service, APS explains.
In all, APS anticipates that more than 75 companies will receive their QSI certification this year. A list of QSIs is available here.
