With that said, it’ll be an exciting year for the RSRV team. They will be powering up California, Florida, New Jersey, and Washington D.C. very soon, as well.
With his laid back, West Coast vibe, Mikkelson is a perfect blend of thoughtful and cool – he also appears to be game for the adventure of it all.
A native of Coeur d’Alene, a city in the northwest corner of Idaho, Mikkelson took off from Idaho after school to race dirt bikes competitively in California.
“My buddy and I, we just took off from Idaho with our dirt bikes, living in a van, just traveling around, racing bikes,” Mikkelson remembers. “It was a blast.”
They did that for three years before it came time to settle down and get full-time jobs. Mikkelson started in sales, selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door. And he did it well.
“I always knew I wanted to do sales and run a business, I just didn’t realize it’d be vacuums or solar panels,” he shares with a laugh. “But it’s all led me right here.”
