Qualified Electrical Worker (QEW) Program for Solar PV Operations

Guidelines to help companies build a QEW program听

The cover image for ACP's Guidelines for Solar PV Operations Qualified Electrical Workers (QEW) on a blue background with a gold ribbon that says "ACP Resource."

Building, operating, and maintaining any power generation project requires an elevated level of electrical safety awareness, training, technical skills, knowledge, and the personal discipline to always act in a safe manner. Photovoltaic Solar (Solar PV) energy sites are unique in that there are so many tasks to be performed by so few technicians, often without the specializations found in traditional generation facilities.

The Guidelines for Solar PV Operations Qualified Electrical Workers may prove useful for both construction and maintenance technician. Although various agency requirements may apply, the focus will be primarily on operations and maintenance personnel as most construction tasks are performed before the site is energized and the general safety requirements for construction are well documented. This is intended as a guideline to assist companies in preparing their own QEW program.

ACP鈥檚 Electrical Safety Working Group finalized these Guidelines for Solar PV Operations Qualified Electrical Workers. The Working Group has developed a similar document for wind.

These guidelines are a part of ACP’s workforce safety resources. If you have questions about the guidelines, please contact safety@cleanpower.org.
