Does my company need to have a Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)?

Following the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and Production Tax Credit (PTC) include apprenticeship requirements for solar projects (above 1 megawatt in size) in order to access the full value of the tax credits.

Companies that have 4 or more employees are required to have at least 1 qualified apprentice on staff. The 1+MW projects you work on are required to have 10% of the labor hours completed by qualified apprentices. That number goes up to 15% by 2024.
