Fresno solar companies Solar Negotiators and Solar Maintenance Pros are joining forces after years of collaborative effort.

The owners of Solar Negotiators, Chris Moran and Leroy Coffman, founded solar Maintenance Pros, a panel cleaning company, in 2013. Today, the firm manages more than 5,000 solar customer’s systems and is continuing to grow.

Though the two businesses are owned by the same people, they were run separately until this announcement.

Moving forward, the business owners not only hope to continue to grow their base of customers, but also create new and innovative ways to serve them.

“Many solar companies have focused primarily on new project origination instead of investing in the necessary resources when it comes to long-term management of these valuable assets,” Moran said. “We realized the best way to serve existing clients and acquire new ones is to establish ourselves as a long-term provider rather than a company primarily focused on sales.”

The same Solar Negotiators network contractors will continue to install solar, providing their own 10-year installation warranty. A new Lifetime Guarantee Package will incorporate long-term cleaning, annual inspections, and access to exclusive solar monitoring software – Know TrueUp.

The software will be released to the public in the coming months, in coordination with the grand opening and ribbon cutting of a newly expanded store at Herndon and Milburn avenues on Jan. 28.
