Chris Moran was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley and began his career in the solar industry over 10 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 founded 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. A Bullard High School and College Valedictorian, Chris has aimed to demonstrate professionalism and competence on all levels of both businesses. 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. Chris Moran has entrepreneurial roots going back three generations on both sides of his family. Chris’ grandparents bought and operated the Madera radio station in the Mid 1960’s, and his grandfather was the voice of the town through the 1980’s. His father was a dentist with a private practice in Madera for over 30 years. Chris Moran is also a third generation shareholder at Sebastian Enterprises incorporated. A business founded in 1946, as Kerman Telephone Company. “I’m so grateful to have grown up in such a solid local company. Attending board meetings as a teenager, I was able to listen to business executives discuss and overcome real corporate challenges. Many of my best leadership principles I learned from those experiences.” Alongside running his successful local business, Chris currently serves on the board of directors for Sebastian Enterprises Inc., Kerman Telephone Inc., and Kertel Communications Inc.,.
