Rob Thompson

Rob started his career with Mountain View Solar six years ago. Having a passion to learn about the solar industry, and wanting to do something in the fight to combat climate change, he knew this would be the best place to work.

Although Rob was born in Baltimore he has been in Berkeley Springs for quite some time and calls it home. He met his partner Amy in high school and together they have three incredibly gorgeous, smart and athletic teenage children; Jared 19, Peyton 18, and Jayda 13. They all share their house with their active 2 year old Husky Apollo.

Anyone with children may be able to guess where Rob can be found when he’s not hard at work. He spends a great deal of time at football games, wrestling matches Softball, basketball and volleyball games! That is a full schedule for all of them! He lives for his children and is a super proud dad!

Having had experience with construction equipment, Rob soon found himself the designated driver/trainer for the big equipment we use for Ground Mounted Systems. He has an eye for detail and helps make all of our ground mounted systems look unbelievably beautiful.

He is always willing to help in any way that he can, and there is no doubt that if he ever came back to the shop shirtless, it would be because he literally gave someone in need the shirt off his back.

Rob has been through a lot in his life and often thinks of his favorite quote, from the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali: He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life

When he’s not at the kids sporting events, or walking the dog (husky’s have a LOT of energy!) you can find Rob watching anything Marvel related on TV, and most likely whipping up a delicious meal in the kitchen.

Recently Rob has started learning more about the electrical side of the solar business, and is looking forward to getting his Journeyman license soon.

Rob would love to live in a world without poverty where all beings were treated equally.
