AREP – The P4 PV QA Program

The P4 platform, hosted by The Association for Renewable Energy Practitioners (AREP), is a quality assurance platform for the solar PV rooftop sector that aims to identify and reduce risks associated with solar PV stakeholders.

The platform uses five performance metrics to score and evaluate contractors on their performance, knowledge, and best practice, with a lower score indicating a higher risk. To participate in the platform, contractors must agree to the terms and conditions, take an online P4 PV test, have at least one installation evaluated using a visual evaluation form, list their installations on the AREP directory, and have end-users review their service on the P4 platform.

The platform focuses on four main standards for electrical and solar PV installations and aims to reduce risk for all stakeholders involved. The PV Performer Score, calculated based on five metrics, is out of 100 and determines a contractor’s risk.
