Brandon Widdows

When Brandon graduated from high school in 2015, like so many of us, he had no idea what he wanted to do. He did know that he needed some sort of job though.

At his grandmothers urging he applied to be an installer here at Mountain View Solar.

It wasn’t long before he realized that a career in the renewable energy field not only helped the individuals getting it, but also the environment. When he understood that, he also knew he was where he wanted to be.

Brandon learned everything he could about both the mechanical and electrical side of the installs, and soon became a crew lead.

Ryan, our master electrician, knew that Brandon has what it takes to really learn the full electrical side of things and started pulling him aside, teaching him the finer points of that side of the installation. He quickly earned his Journeyman license and puts his talents to work daily.

One of Brandon’s favorite quotes is from Benjamin Franklin: Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. Brandon is continuing to learn every day.

Although Brandon was born in Maryland, his family moved to West Virginia when he was in middle school. Brandon now lives in Berkeley Springs with his gorgeous fiancé Becky, their adorable young daughter Laurel and the family cats, Blaze and Binx.

When Brandon isn’t working he loves to be outside hiking or fishing with his family. If the weather isn’t cooperating, you might find him inside snuggling on the couch with Becky and watching Bob’s Burgers.

Brandon’s love for his family is evident in everything that he does. If he could change the world, in just one way he would put an end to the senseless abuse of children and animals

I believe that all MTV employees would agree that it would be wonderful if we could clone Brandon, as he is one of the hardest working young men you will ever be lucky enough to meet.
