A state electrical contractor license is required for any company in the business of installing, erecting, repairing or altering electrical systems, or apparatus used for electrical light, heat, power or signaling. Person(s) performing the PV electrical installation for the electrical contractor must be a licensed electrician.
This is the beginner stage, and in order to apply, you will first have to complete an apprenticeship and have at least 8,000 hours of job experience under the supervision of a master electrician. You will have to include the full 8,000 hours of employment in the application form. And your employer(s) will have to sign an experience verification form.
The license costs $25, which you will have to send through a money order.
