Licensing requirements for Solar Installers in Nebraska
Nebraska has no specific licensing requirements for those wishing to install solar power systems except for the fact that the installation of solar power is considered electrical work and so normal state based licensing would require that the installer be a licensed electrical contractor in Nebraska.
Equipment Standards or Certification
Nebraska has no specific standards that solar power equipment must comply with, however where state rules are not available or unclear it would always be a minimum to use national standards such as, national safety, equipment and power-quality standards established by the National Electrical Code (NEC), the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
Interconnection Regulations (small generator)
If you are looking to install a solar power system of 10kW or less you will generally find that you will have a simplified interconnection process with your electricity Utility. It is important for a prospective solar power purchaser to contact their own electricity Utility in order to check on interconnection regulations.
