About PV Greencard Certification
The PV GreenCard is an as-built report for the Solar PV system owner and a checklist for the installer which qualified installers provide to their clients on the completion of a project. The PV GreenCard contains details of the installation such as the brand and number of PV modules and inverters used, as well a checklist of all of the necessary installation steps that were completed.
