About Us

Mission Solar Electric is a California Licensed Electrical Contractor (C-10 #905059) that specializes in Solar Electric Installations all over San Diego County. The company is locally owned and operated by James Pinon, a 11 year industry veteran who is also a NABCEP Certified Solar PV InstallerTM which is a national certification program that attests to a high degree of experience and expertise in Solar Electric (see www.nabcep.org ). James also holds a degree in Physics from UC San Diego and has taught Solar Electric Installation classes for the Solar Living Institute and Cuyamaca Community College.
After working in Instrumentation and Industrial Automation for 10 years after his University education, James became interested in the nascent Solar Electric industry in 2002 and decided he wanted to join the industry even though it would be starting a new career from the bottom. The prospect of clean, renewable energy powered by the sun without noise or emissions was, and still is the motivating factor. James received a entry level Installer position with Hardy Solar in July 2003 and quickly gained expertise and experience in Installations, Design, Permitting, and Sales. From 2005 until 2007, James worked in the same capacity for Alternative Energy Technologies as the company grew from a start-up to mid-level Installation company. From 2003 through 2007, James was intimately involved in the installation of over 600 kW of Solar Modules.

In October 2007, James founded Mission Solar Electric which has since installed over 800 kW of Solar Modules. MSE is a member of the California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA), and carries Commercial General Liability Insurance and Worker’s Compensation Insurance.
