It’s the end of summer for mtvSolar intern Jacob Montague. One of his favorite experiences was teaching 30,000 fellow Scouts about the many benefits of solar renewable energy.
I’m Jacob Montague - civil engineering student at Virginia Tech, Eagle Scout, and summer intern at Mountain View Solar in Berkeley Springs, WV. During my internship at mtvSolar I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with nearly every aspect of the solar industry, from marketing research, to 3D modeling of solar system layouts, to permitting and inspection processes, and even some actual solar installations.
My biggest project this summer, however, was representing mtvSolar at the 2013 Boy Scouts of America (BSA) National Jamboree, which took place in southern West Virginia. This year’s National Jamboree included something rather new and exciting: Technology Quest, one of the many ...

Anybody who grows a garden knows that even a giant sunflower starts with a single seed.
Plant early and you’ll have a great harvest.
Solar is a little like that.
Solar installed today will produce electricity for 30-40 years!
The way solar power systems are designed, they can be installed incrementally, which means you can begin
your solar garden with just a few panels (and a smaller initial investment) and grow it over time.
Now is a great time to get started.

It is hard to believe that another year has passed, and how much has changed in just a handful of years. While our passion for the growth of renewable energy in the region has been a huge driving force behind the success of MTVSolar, it has been the tremendous support of our local communities and clients that is truly responsible for helping us chase our dreams. There are many individuals and organizations which have been with us on every step of this journey, and moving forward into 2013, I would like to extend a heart-felt thank-you from everyone here at MTVSolar to every one in the MTVSolar family. It is with a great deal of excitement and potential that we start this year, and having the support of so many in our local communities is a blessing for us as we move into 2013.
