Company Founder/ Chief Executive Officer
Solar Negotiators – Solar Maintenance Pros
Chris Moran was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley and began his career in the solar industry over eight years ago. Working with established local electrical contractors and industry leading manufacturers, he aimed to educate valley residents on the benefits of PV solar systems. In 2009, Chris founded a small company in his garage known as Moran Power, an honest business focused on helping consumers get the facts on solar systems in California. That small company is now Solar Negotiators Inc., a well known turnkey solution for affordable solar in the valley. “I would like to thank our clients, my family and our team here at Solar Negotiators for the support they have shown for this company and its vision.”

In 2013, he helped found Solar Maintenance Pros, a panel cleaning service company. Three years later, the business obtained their contractor license in order to expand its service offerings beyond just panel cleaning. Their crew began to install, expand, upgrade, repair, monitor, and provide any and all services necessary to customers after their original installation. Today, Solar Maintenance Pros is the premier provider for solar service in California, managing over 5,000 solar customer’s systems and adding more each month. Moving forward, he hopes to continue to grow the company’s base of customers and create new and innovative ways to serve them.

The main goal for both his companies is to provide the best solar service to valley residents, working together to do so while giving customers more “complete” solar experience. He is also a proud veteran, having served 6 years in the United States Marine Corps. Deployed to serve a tour in Iraq in 2007, he drive large fuel trucks at forward refueling points and in convoy.
