SAPVIA launches PV GreenCard

October 23, 2017

Secure PV installations for South Africa and a database of reliable installers

The South African Photovoltaic Industry Association SAPVIA launched their new PV GreenCard in Johannesburg on Friday, 26th May. As main motivation for the programme they state the “peace of mind that your solar PV installation complies with industry and international best practice”.

The idea is to create a safe environment for end clients, installers and investors. The procedure is simple: SAPVIA gives out guidelines for assessments where installers undergo a theoretical and practical test which they must pass in order to be included in the list of certified installers in the PV GreenCard database. Then for every installation, a PV GreenCard is issued by the certified installers in order to proof the correctness of the installation. The plan is to make the PV GreenCard a seal of quality and mandatory for any official installations.

Join the launch of the PV GreenCard for more information or follow @PVGreenCard on Twitter. In the next days, we will provide more info on our social media channels as well. Access the database under
