ADAMS, Mass. — Two managers at Berkshire Photovoltaic Services achieved the highest solar certification credential from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners.

Bryan Waryjasz of Clarksburg and Adam Rich of Pittsfield both achieved the highest solar certification credential.

In fact, they were the only two Massachusetts applicants who passed on the recent exam — about 70 percent of applicants fail the test.

"Bryan and Adam are true experts in the technology," said Chris Kilfoyle, founder of BPVS and one of the first NABCEP certified photovoltaic professionals in the country. "This past year they each designed and managed the installation of complex AC coupled grid connect and stand by power solar systems, one in West Stockbridge and the other in Becket for our customers. We're very proud they passed the NABCEP exam which requires a thorough understanding of the complex interactions in solar electric system performance."

The Photovoltaic Professional Certification from NABCEP is recognized internationally as the standard for expertise in Solar Electric System design and installation. Certificate Applicants must prove three years experience in the field and submit case studies and references to four photovoltaic projects they have designed and managed the installation process. The credential is awarded after the applicants pass a rigorous, proctored test.
