GEM Energy, a Rudolph/Libbe company headquartered in Walbridge, Ohio, with offices in Baldwinsville, N.Y., is now an approved NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research & Development Authority) solar installer.

GEM Energy is a turnkey solar developer with capabilities including project financing, design, engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance. The certification qualifies GEM Energy to perform NYSERDA-funded solar projects.

Companies earn this important certification by adhering to industry-recognized best practices, high-quality installation standards, safe work practices and customer satisfaction,” GEM Energy President Hussien Shousher said. “We’re very pleased to join NYSERDA’s network of energy solution providers.”

GEM Energy and Rudolph/Libbe solar projects range from small roof-top arrays to large, ground mounted utility-scale projects.

GEM Energy also is a member of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), a certification awarded to creditable solar installers and integrators.

This is GEM Energy’s second NYSERDA certification. GEM also is an approved vendor in the NYSERDA CHP (Combined Heat and Power) Acceleration Program, which provides financial incentives for the installation of pre-engineered CHP programs.
