The Good

  • Experience
  • Large Coverage Area
  • Takes the Stress Out of the Process
  • Online Monitoring

Experience

Mountain View Solar has been providing solar power to customers since 2006. It is one of the foremost solar providers in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. When put up against competitors, Mountain View Solar often wins out in terms of experience and time in the trenches. You can be sure that company has hands-on knowledge of how solar power works and how it can benefit you.

Large Coverage Area

Impressively, Mountain View Solar is available in four states and serves a large population of customers and prospective customers. The company is also licensed in Washington, D.C., North Carolina and Ohio. The company continues to grow and attract customers, which is a sure sign that things are going well and that people are satisfied with the service they are getting.

Takes the Stress Out of the Process

To some, the thought of installing solar panels on their roof might be a daunting, complicated process. While this may be the case with some companies, it's not with Mountain View. Because it is committed to customer service, Mountain View Solar professionals will never be far from you during the planning and installation of your system. Only team members are involved in every stage of the process, and Mountain View uses high-quality materials in every product and piece of the system, and all materials are made in the U.S. The company will handle all of the dirty work, including the inspection and permitting.

Online Monitoring

Mountain View Solar allows clients to monitor the energy output of their solar arrays online. For many customers, online monitoring is a tool that can't be left out of the solar power system. Online monitoring allows a customer to see the performance of the system simply by checking on a computer or mobile device such as a phone or tablet. When a company offers this simple and convenient way of keeping an eye on the system, it sets it apart from the competition.

The Bad

  • Undisclosed Payment Options

Undisclosed Payment Options

Mountain View Solar does not make clear which financing options are available to customers. While one could reasonably assume the company, like almost all other solar providers in the industry, will help homeowners chart a path to solar array ownership through outright purchase, information regarding solar loans, financing partners, and rates remains a mystery.

Additionally, no information could be found regarding solar leases or power purchase agreements (PPA). While Mountain View Solar appears to advocate for outright purchase of a solar system via the company blog, it does not make explicit whether these additional financing options are available.

The Bottom Line

Mountain View is clearly doing some things well. Otherwise the business wouldn't have lasted as long as it has, nor would it have the customer base it has garnered. Still, it's difficult to ignore the omissions described here. The company is fast and efficient, but it also has some restrictions that may hamper your ability or desire to go with solar power. Do your homework and shop around for some other possibilities before settling on Mountain View Solar.

Martin Mandelberg Falls Church, VA

MTV Solar installed a 33 panel (9.9KW) Solar World system with a Solar Edge Inverter on my home in October 2017, Installation was performed on schedule, done correctly, and completed in one day. The work passed the structural and electrical Fairfax county permit inspection the first time. Energy production from the system matched the MTV salesman's estimate. I was so satisfied that I had them add an additional 15 panel (4.5KW) system to my house in 2018. I give them FIVE STARS!!
