Our Second-Generation, Locally Owned Family-Run Business is Over 45 Years Old

In that time, we’re proud to have built the enviable reputation of being one of the finest solar system providers in the Valley. Founded by Richard and Jean Harmon in 1975, the company has grown exponentially over the years and is currently under the leadership of Harmon-King and her husband Dan King.

Since taking over Harmon Solar from Julie’s parents, Dan and Julie have grown Harmon by more than 3,400% in the last 13 years.


Julie King, CEO

Having mom and dad owning the company while she grew up gave Julie a job as a teenager and the opportunity to decide she would never work in construction again. Or so she thought. While Julie has many accomplishments under her belt as a person and as owner of the company; the most admirable is how she managed to make us a Certified Woman Owned Business. This is not easy! When Julie isn't in the office running the business; she is still running the business... but she is also a proud mom and grandma who loves to spend time with her family and friends. She teaches fitness classes and loves to work out. Time with her husband, Dan, is best spent finding unique wineries and microbreweries or cooking.

"I value truth and ownership with everything. It is important that people feel a sense of ownership in the things they choose to do."

Dan King, COO

Dan brings over two decades of experience in business sales to Harmon. Throughout the years he has achieved many things as an individual and as the chief operations officer. Included in this list you'll find his success at Enterprise RAC in their commercial fleet leasing division for twelve years, purchasing the company (Harmon Electric, Inc.) in 2005 with spouse Julie King he focused his entrepreneurial skills to rapidly grow the Electrical business while starting up the Solar Division in 2008. Although Dan is best known as the COO, he is also known to hold the title of dad and grandpa. His time outside of work is best spent with family and friends; creating memorable experiences with them. A majority of these experiences centered on his cooking and everyone enjoying it. When he isn't in the kitchen, you'll find Dan on a trail or up a mountain enjoying another hobby of his; hiking.

"I live my life both personally and professionally by the golden rule. Respect is a timeless principle and it is my personal mission to get everyone to understand that."

Ralph Romano

Vice President of Sales & Marketing

Ralph is over commercial and residential solar sales and marketing; with over 25 years of experience in executive management.

Ralph may hold the VP title for sales and marketing, but he is also known as a father, mentor, and lover of the Seattle Seahawks. Outside of the office he enjoys overseeing a youth baseball travel club organization; helping young men not only become better ball players but shaping them into better people and preparing them for the future. When he isn't watching his son compete in baseball at the high school level, you will find Ralph playing his drums to all genres of music.

"Integrity is a core principle that I have carried with me throughout my professional and personal life. I hold myself and others to a consistent moral and ethical level of standards. The company's core values, integrity and quality, align with mine. This is extremely critical to me."

Ryan King

Solar Design Manager

This accreditation is the most recognized certification the solar industry has to offer. When he is not racking his brain with calculations and measurements, you’ll find Ryan working out, spending time with his family, enjoying football and all of its glory, or engaging in his true passion- cooking.
