In 2018, Urbasolar was the 1st French enterprise to be AQPV (French photovoltaic quality alliance) certified. This certification with its referential quality standards, the implementation of which the group has greatly contributed to, is an initiative of the CSTB (French building science and technical center) which created Certisolis, the certifying organization. It is oriented for businesses in the photovoltaic industry and has the goal of serving as an indisputable benchmark for clients, both private and public, who wish to work with the best operators, covering all the skills needed for the engineering, construction, and operation of photovoltaic power plants. Because of its demanding standards, this certification is known as the ultimate recognition of quality for photovoltaic industry businesses in France.
Engaged in a Quality Management System (QMS) with the goal of pursuing a policy of continual improvement and orientation towards the client within the company, the group uses a construction quality assurance plan detailing the goals and processes that must be respected during the construction of a photovoltaic power plant, from commissioning to acceptance of works.
