See how Mountain View Solar can help you start on your solar journey this year.

Mountain View Solar enables you to generate your own solar energy and, where desired, backup your home’s most important electricity users with batteries. We provide the friendliness and experience that you expect.

Since 2009, our family-oriented and established firm has provided safe, quality installations for customers in our community.  Our employees are the experienced and industry certified bedrock of our service; we do not outsource our residential work and we have a commitment to quality.  Mountain View Solar is your comprehensive energy partner with a friendly, professional, and customized approach to your home.

Our team works with you to identify the best financial course, including options to finance 100% of your system so you can sign a contract with $0 down and monthly payments starting after your array starts generating electricity.  Every system we install has the option to add a Pearl Certification which is an industry benchmark in showing the value you have added to your home to help your home appraise and sell for more.

Our professional team can help by sending you a free and customized home solar proposal that can include battery backup specific to your home that can offset up to 100% of your electricity usage.  Once we connect to provide your free solar proposal, our expert solar consultants explain your proposed system, discuss how it works, hear your preferences, and answer your questions. 

Services

Solar Photovoltaic Installations

Mountain View Solar offers the complete and professional design of every solar array.  Our team works with you to identify the best location for your solar panels, whether they be installed on your roof or on the ground.  We design your system to maximize your benefits from your investment in solar generation and to match your aesthetic preferences.  Once installed, your solar panels will generate clean electricity that, first, powers your home with excess generation exported to your electric utility.  In both cases, your solar generation offsets your usage and saves on your electric bill.
