About Us

About Us: Fire Mountain Solar

The home of the Nelson Family, founders of FMS, built long before solar went mainstream in the U.S. Originally operated off-grid, the power system was upgraded to be grid-hybrid after utility power made it to the end of the road 14 years later.

Limits? Not here. Energy solutions for every lifestyle.

Need help finding a power solution for a unique situation?  We’ve been there!  FMS was founded after the owners purchased a rural piece of property with no utility power. Wanting to enjoy the beautiful setting but not wanting to live with the noise of a generator like their neighbors, they designed and installed a solar/wind/energy storage power solution where a generator served only as occasional supplemental backup. Fourteen years later when utility power finally made it to the end of the road, the power system was updated to what is considered the best of both worlds: a grid hybrid solar system that uses the automatic generator for recharging when the utility goes down for extended periods.
