About Fire Mountain Solar
Who We Are
Fire Mountain Solar is a family-owned and operated business started in 2001 in Mt Vernon, WA. Owners Tim and Alana Nelson are committed to providing the most effective solutions and finest renewable energy products to residential and commercial clients in WA State and around the U.S.
At Fire Mountain Solar, we know that a renewable energy system is a major investment and that there are many questions you need answered before you make a purchase. We take pride in guiding you through the ever-changing maze of technology, offering you highly competitive prices, and bringing our expert knowledge and experience to designing a green energy system to meet your personal goals.
Our Mission: Fire Mountain Solar provides renewable and alternative energy products and services that benefit our customers, our partners and the earth. We will accomplish our mission through a commitment to continuous improvement, advanced technology and the highest level of service.
Our Approach – Customer Service not Sale: We seek to understand and clarify your desired outcomes at the beginning, to ensure we provide you with the best selection of renewable energy solutions to choose from for your specific application. Our repeat business and strong referral network are testimony that honesty and conservative estimates are more important than overly enthusiastic claims and assurances.

Giving Back – Community Education: For over a decade we have offered free classes and workshops at local colleges, universities, public and private schools. By helping expand awareness and understanding of renewable energy, we can encourage inclusion of non-polluting sources of power in our communities. We believe that by teaching the value of renewable energy, we can help create a future where solar and wind power is no longer considered “alternative” energy.
Giving Back – Lamplight Giving Program: In 2011 the Nelson’s started the Lamplight Giving Program. Through it Fire Mountain Solar donates a minimum of $100 from every complete system sold to one of three carefully selected charities that meet the following criteria:
- We have some kind of direct and personal connection to the charity.
- The charity is based “locally”, though the work they do may not be.
- The structure of the organization is such that the bulk of the money contributed goes directly to supporting the work being done, not just to pay for excessive overhead.
- Our commitment to the organization goes beyond just financial support.
At the end of each year we review the program and in January we announce our charities for the coming year. For more information on our Lamplight Giving Program, please visit our blog at FMS Blog
