Installers are an integral part of the Power Pack program, bringing their industry expertise to potential buyers. Installers must meet or exceed the MREA qualification standards for experience and credentialing. This ensures that interested consumers can depend on a professional solar installer to expertly perform the installation.

As an approved Power Pack installer, you are invited to the one-hour public presentations called a Solar Power HourSM. A Solar Power HourSM educates participants on the benefits of solar energy, trends and financing. Attendance provides an opportunity for you to answer participants’ questions and generate leads for potential installations.

The Power Pack program maintains an approved list of trained solar photovoltaic (PV) installers. MREA qualification standards for credentialing and project experience must minimally meet the following criteria:


Power Pack installers are required to hold certification in one of the following:

  • PV Installer Certification through the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) or a Underwriter Laboratories (UL) Photovoltaic System Installer Certification
  • Completed a U.S. Department of Labor recognized electrical apprenticeship program and has at least two documented photovoltaic system installations; or
  • Has earned a certificate/degree from an accredited solar design and installation training program and has at least two documented photovoltaic system installations
