Why does Sharp require Solar Installation training?
Proper installation of Sharp Solar electric systems requires a thorough understanding of solar principles, components, capabilities, and practical considerations like wiring and mounting hardware. In order to maintain high standards of product performance, safety and customer satisfaction, we train and certify contractors in all these areas before they may become part of Sharp's elite installation network.
