Windward Construction is now pursuing renewable energy technology! By the summer of 2009, Windward will have earned a certificate of knowledge through the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) with a focus on Photo Voltaic (PV) technology . What is NABCEP you may ask? NABCEP is part of a nationwide effort to set a higher standard for businesses involved in the renewable energy field. Though not a required certification for doing business in the renewable energy field, the industry is attempting to self regulate and keep to a decisive code of conduct and universal level of knowledge in the arena. This higher level of knowledge is consistent with Windwards’ goals and we are excited to be a part of the PV movement. To learn more, go to http://www.nabcep.org
What’s next after NABCEP? What better way to give back to your community than to pursue the State of Colorado standards as well? Windward will also earn a certification with Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (COSEIA) who sets the standards for local installers as well. More information can be found at: http://www.coseia.org/
What is the latest in technology with photovoltaic renewable energy? Tune in to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory ( http://www.nrel.gov/pv/). Take a tour of the NREL lab in Golden, Colorado or the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC: http://www.nrel.gov/wind/nwtc.html ) located just south of Boulder, Colorado.
Look to Windward Construction to help you achieve your renewable energy goals. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the movement away from fossil fuels and towards long term renewable energy to better the planet for everyone.
