With the tremendous growth of solar installations and the continuing evolution of licensing requirements for photovoltaic and solar installers, IREC’s National Solar Licensing Map provides the latest licensing, certification and other requirements impacting the solar industry. This comprehensive tool is designed for policy makers, stakeholders, practitioners, students, consumers and anyone looking for solar licensing information in the United States.

States establish licensing requirements for contractors to protect consumers from unsafe practices and to ensure systems are installed properly. As these requirements continue to develop and evolve, researching state-specific information can sometimes be complicated and time-consuming. Fortunately, IREC does the hard work of keeping current with these requirements, so you always have current information at your fingertips.
