JOHNSON PURIMITLA 

Lead Installer

Johnson first worked with off-grid solar power systems in his home city of Kathmandu, Nepal. He was the lead technician with an American-owned renewable energy company based out of Kathmandu, which won the bid for many large projects in the country, including a 50 KW system for the United States Embassy.  

 

After moving to the United States in 2016, he has continued to work on  hundreds of projects within the upper Midwest. 

 

Coming from a country of limited resources, the options for using renewable energy are compelling and thrilling for me. I love what I do, and am proud of the systems we design and build for our customers.

In my free time, I freelance in photography. Because of my love for photography, I am able to take all the photos of our jobs which are used for our website, Instagram, Facebook posts, and marketing material. I work with the owners of MN Solar on all of our Social Media platforms and really enjoy working and learning more about that part of our company. The owners of MN Solar encourage us to step out of our roles and grow professionally and personally.
