Michael Collins launched his solar career in 2012 while achieving his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Florida with a concentration in Finance. He says his finance degree has enabled him to demonstrate the best solar return on investment when assisting solar customers.
“It’s as if solar power runs through Mike’s veins,” says one of his fellow team members at PPM Solar. Mike insists on spending quality time examining the details of a home or business to provide the best solution to reach the highest possible solar energy production.
“There are a lot of nuances to any given home or business—their energy use, their roof, their future energy use, and more,” says Mike. He insists on spending time on-site with each prospect, evaluating surroundings and shading conditions, past electrical use, planned power increases (electric car, etc.), and the federal tax credit suitability. Only then can Mike feel confident that his proposed solution is the best for their circumstances.
Mike is also quick to acknowledge that the owners of PPM Solar and his colleagues have inspired his determination to succeed. Mike proclaims that “working in this industry has taught me that there truly is no replacement for hard work.”
Mike balances his personal and work life with music, fishing, and boating. If you don’t find him on the water, he’s probably someplace rooting for one of his favorite football teams – Florida Gators and Miami Dolphins.
The entire PPM Solar team is grateful to Mike for his many years of dedicated service!
