Sam Haraldson

Operations Specialist
Sam took an interest in sustainability and respect for the environment at a young age and has held a life-long respect for our planet.  Earning a bachelor's degree in Environmental Design from North Dakota State University provided him an understanding of the necessity of a sustainable society.  His career path found him working in a wide range of fields including software development, the National Park Service, and multiple companies within the outdoor gear industry.  

Sam started with OnSite in 2016 as their first full time employee learning the PV installation trade.  Within a short period he had earned the industry-standard NABCEP PV Installation Professional certification and his work quickly branched out to managing the Installation Department and spearheading the formation of a Service Department.  In his tenure he has played a crucial role as Installation and Service Manager, Field Operations Director, and most recently a "jack-of-all-trades" Operations Specialist.  

Sam, his wife, and their daughter spend as much of their free time in the outdoors as possible working in their garden, camping, skiing, and bicycling.  Family and work are most important to Sam but his third passion is the Gallatin Valley community.  He has been involved with the non-profit Bozeman Bike Kitchen since 2008 and currently serves as President of their Board of Directors.
