Mike began his MTV Solar career in 2012 after moving to the area from Northern Virginia. He studied Alternative Energies at Hagerstown Community College and was brought on as an intern.
He knows the solar industry from every angle. Mike started in the office learning the permitting and interconnection process and helping with preliminary designs. He moved into monitoring systems, and then became the foreman on the First Energy project, making sure the beacon lights on all the tall towers stayed on. He finally landed his dream job as a Consultant for both residential and commercial clients.
Mike passed his NABCEP Installers exam on his first try earning him certificate # PV-041214-004306. NABCEP Company Accreditation is the highest recognition of quality assurance for solar installation companies.
Mike lives in Ranson WV now, with his beautiful wife and very soon, his adorable baby girl! The two dogs they rescued from war torn countries round out their family, and his adoration for all of them is evident when he talks about them. Mike will be an incredible dad! He is always willing to help his coworkers in any way!
Mike spends a great deal of time working, but when he does have time to do what he pleases, you will find him fishing, running, hiking or just being outdoors with his family. He also likes to play both video and board games; as of right now he is the reigning Domino’s Champion of the house.
Although he doesn’t know who to attribute the quote to, one of his favorites is: “Give people a break, I’m sure you’ve needed one before”. What a wonderful sentiment for everyone to remember.
Mike is making the world a better place by educating people he meets about the wonderful environmental benefits of solar. Now if he could eliminate greed from the world, he’d be a happy camper.
