ARESCA Announces Why Standards and Certification Is Important

Posted on 6 Jun, 2016 By in Category General

The American Renewable Energy Standards and Certification Association (ARESCA), is a Vermont non-profit Section 50l(c)(6) organization formed in 2015 to foster renewable energy standards and certifcation efforts.


Standards are essential to the deployment of safe and effective renewable energy systems that provide electrical energy at the lowest cost.


Certification provides common and consistent documentation that energy systems have been designed, manufactured, and erected to the highest safety and reliability requirements, and will perform as intended.  Having a single certification process will:

  • Establish an internationally harmonized certification system.
  • Provide globally accepted, bankable certificates.
  • Document that conformity assessment has been completed
  • Provide a single statement of risk assessment that can be used by many stakeholders
