Solar install with net metering

We had a really good experience with Fire Mountain. No high pressure tactics, we were put in contact with a technical person when we had more questions about different options, and we were quickly given estimates for the different setups we were looking for. The team was accurate with their estimated install dates and length and were in contact with me throughout the process. Fire mountain also took care of permits and submitting net metering applications to my utility. We haven’t had any issues with our system since it was installed, and have been seeing the solar credit in our electric bill each month. We recommend Fire Mountain.

Horrible service and installation

I hired FMS 8 years ago to install a hybrid solar/ wind system and Tim did nothing right in the installation. He told me the wrong wire size to bury for the wind turbine ($1,500), wrong size pipe for the solar rack ($400), and the wiring is a mess. right now I am working with an electrician to get it all cleaned up and I'm looking at another $5,000 to get that done. <br />Before you hire FMS, do some research and find a quality installer.

A truly exceptional solar power vendor

Fire Mountain Solar was responsible for designing and deploying the power system for our island property. The project involved one of the largest residential solar deployments in the county. The property is entirely off-grid. Tim N. and the rest of the Fire Mountain Solar team was terrific to work with at all stages. From the design and planning stage, throughout the buildout, and including after-sales support, the team has been highly responsive, extraordinarily professional, creative, and thoughtful about the living needs of our property. Special kudos for Fire Mountain Solar's handling of unexpected issues as they arose during building construction and for taking a solution-oriented approach working with our construction team. It was obvious that the entire Fire Mountain Solar team took great pride in their work and were meticulous about every detail. Everything including the panel grids, the layout of the main power room, the mounting of inverters and charge controllers, and the routing of the cables was executed beautifully, as if it were intended for display as art. The team also prepared detailed documentation manuals, provided training, and has been especially responsive in supporting the system on an ongoing basis. They provided and continue to provide exceptional service.

Throughout the years, we have successfully completed numerous off-grid projects, including several of significant scale. However, your sizeable project presented us with some unique challenges that made it exceptionally exciting and fun. We are delighted to hear that you are highly satisfied with the aesthetics and performance of the system, as well as with the customer service from our entire team.

Service so good I'm reviewing them twice!

Since my first attempt at leaving a review here didn't seem to go through, I'm trying it again. Fire Mountain Solar was fantastic to work with. Friday was very responsive and helped us weigh the pros and cons as we decided what type of system would be beneficial. I never felt any pressure to buy, and she addressed all my questions with expertise. The installation and set up was as painless as could be. They were here right when they said they would be, and Tim was quick to answer my questions as we waited for PSE to do their final installation and approval. I also found them to be flexible and honest. Between the time of our initial inquiry and the time of installation, the cost of panels dropped, and they were quick to pass that savings on to us. In addition, once they were actually on the roof, they realized they could simplify the layout from what they had initially planned, which will benefit us whenever the time comes to do more work on them. I highly recommend them to anyone considering going solar.

A great and efficient company to work with

From start to finish of our project, the staff at Fire Mountain were excellent to work with. They answered my many questions, communicated regularly with project updates, and showed up exactly when they said they would. The project was on budget and they handled all of the communication with the electric company, L&I, and our municipality. I would highly recommend them to others.

Couldn't be happier

Had a wonderful experience with Fire Mountain Solar. From the quotation process, installation, inspections to PTO, FM was perfect all along the way (at a great value!) L&I was even especially complimentary on the installation. If I had another solar project, I'd not hesitate to work with Friday, Tim and the entire crew again. Thanks FM solar!!

Always happens as promised

The last work we had done by Fire Mountain was the 3rd extension of our solar system. We are extremely happy! Working with Fire Mountain is so easy and the quality of the work is so high. We were left extremely satisfied. Our next step may be battery storage. Without a doubt we will be calling Fire Mountain. They are part of a contractor breed that is difficult to find.

A perfect experience

I was influenced to install solar panels by Fire Mountain Solar because I personally knew 3 other households who had Fire Mountain install solar panels on 4 homes. The process of handling the applications was handled entirely by Fire Mountain and the actual install for my home took 1 day of labor plus about 2 hours on the following day. Within about the next 10 days following the install I had 3 inspections and my electric company (PSE) activated the system. I am able to easily monitor the daily electric production of the panels and from the meter see how much excess electricity is sent to the grid. The price that I paid Fire Mountain covered all applications, inspections, parts and labor. This price was lower on a price/watt than a competing bid and the panels used by Fire Mountain are manufactured in WA state. The facts that my friends were happy with the company, the price/kilowatt was lower than a competing offer, and supporting jobs in my state were strong influences in selecting Fire Mountain. Finally, the 30% income tax + 0% state sales tax saves me more than $8,000 of the otherwise total cost of the project. The panels were installed in late May and activated by PSE in early June. They have been working flawlessly now for about 6 weeks. The panels are of a high quality and are backed by a 25-year warranty on workmanship and a 30-year warranty on performance.

Residential installation

Solar panels were installed over a roof that was not up to code (not the installers fault). Due to the faulty roof installation a replacement was needed. Fire Mountain Solar at a very reasonable cost was able to take down the panels and replace them once a new roof was installed. Tim was very pleasant to work with and I would recommend the company to anyone looking to install solar in the future.
