ROSEMONT, Ill. — Roof Integrated Solar Energy Inc.’s (RISE) Certified Solar Roofing Professional (CSRP) designation will be recognized by the state of Colorado to fulfill the requirements set forth in Colorado Revised Statute 40-2-128, "Solar Photovoltaic Installations."

With the help of DOW Solar, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Co., Midland, Mich., the regulation was amended to include the CSRP designation as equal to the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners certification already cited within the statute. The amendment was passed in the Colorado House and Senate, and will become effective July 1.
