Maine's Energy Division under the Department of Economic and Community Development offers a voluntary solar contractor certification and training program. The program involves fifteen hours of coursework and examination, a competency in installation course, and requires proof of at least one year of experience in solar installations with a minimum of five installations. Upon successful completion of the program, the Division issues a Solar Energy Installer Certificate. There has been little activity under this program recently and, at present, passing the test and paying the fee have been all that is required for the certification.
