Solar Panel Installation reviews in Austin

  • So after getting bids from several other solar installers, we met with Voyage Solar and I'm so glad I waited until I met with them. From the first meeting to go over a proposal to the ongoing support, Voyage Solar has been courteous, efficient, knowledgeable, communicative, and fast. Their proposal was the best per-KWH price, best production output, and best proposal we received--all the things we were told to consider when researching solar installers. Plus, they're a local business, something else that was important to us. I thought it would take several months to get the system up and running, but Sai and his team took care of everything and I was up in less than two months from the time I signed the contract. The longest time was waiting for the HOA and the city to approve. You can't go wrong to choose Sai, Shawn, Chris, and the support team at Voyage Solar.

  • My nickname is the “Recycling Queen” and going solar couldn’t have been easier with Logan at Longhorn Solar. I certainly was aware of solar but had no idea what was involved and that, in the end, it’s actually affordable! I was approached by Premier Solar Solutions and decided to meet with them to learn what’s involved in adding solar to my home. What Premier told us sounded great and we signed up with 5 days to cancel if we changed our mind. There wasn’t much online about Premier so my husband gave a shout out on our neighborhood blog asking if anyone had gone solar and if they knew anything about Premier and boy are we glad we did that! Someone answered with a great review for Logan at Longhorn Solar along with Logan’s phone number. The next day I called Logan and I can’t express how happy I am for doing that. Logan met with us the very next day and not only did he beat Premier’s price by almost $10k but he also made it very clear that some of the information we were previously given was incorrect. Rather than talk bad about the other company he was very professional and simply showed us how to figure out the nuts and bolts of solar and how solar produces kilowatt hours. Not trashing the other company was very professional. Needless to say, we cancelled our contract and went with Longhorn and it was a remarkable decision. Our installation was an absolute breeze and took less than one day. Longhorn took care of everything….it truly was a turnkey process. If you are even considering solar, give Longhorn Solar a call or just call Logan directly at 512-791-3778. Great company, great account manager, highly educated and passionate professionals who are in the business because they truly care. Give them a call and tell them Linnea recommended them!

  • When JP came out to look our system over, it was clear that he had the necessary expertise. He negotiated a price for the detach-and-reset operation with State Farm, which was paying for the reshingling. Our system's Enphase M210 micro-inverters had been failing at an unacceptable rate, and Enphase was no longer paying for the labor involved in replacing them, so we decided to take advantage of the insurance-paid reset to replace the M210s with M250s, which are reported to be more reliable. We found M250s at a better price than 512 Solar was quoting; that was fine with 512 Solar, who were still perfectly willing to perform the detach-and-reset operation, installing the new M250s at no extra charge. When detachment day arrived, 512 Solar showed up on time, and soon had the panels stacked in our garage and the rails tucked under the eaves to be out of the way of the roofers. When the reshingling was complete, 512 Solar came again, fitting our reset job in before we went out of town, and installed the rails, the new micro-inverters, and the panels. They made sure the system was performing, and took care of informing Enphase of the M210s' retirement. The only slight imperfection concerned timing of the reset operation. I was told that the 512 Solar crew would be arriving mid-morning, but they didn't actually show up until early afternoon. Had I known that, I would have spent my morning differently. That failing is extremely minor, actually worth about 0.1 letter grade. The continuing decline in solar PV prices has us interested in expanding our system. When we get around to it, the company we'll call with be 512 Solar.

  • After checking out several contractors for my job, I decided to go with Green Star Solutions based on the quality of their previous work, a competitive price, and the professionalism of their staff. They are an approved vendor with Austin Energy and took care of all the paperwork for permits and rebate applications. I made several modifications to what I wanted along the way and they were always accommodating. I have had my solar panels for almost two years and have been very pleased with the experience. A big factor in having a solar panel system is getting service done after the initial install. I have had a couple equipment failures and Green Star was very responsive when I reported trouble. They had people at my house right away to fix my problem and covered all parts and labor under their warranty. I have recommended Green Star Solutions to my friends for solar panel and EV charger installations and they have all been pleased with the quality of the work. I am a satisfied customer and would do business with this company again.

  • Overall very happy with the entire process from start to finish. Knowledgeable salesman walked me the choices available for me along with explaining the entire City of Austin rebate and the federal tax credits details. I chose to finance the project thru Voyage - it went smooth. I went with a Sunmodule Mono Black panel - looks great on my roof! Choose the more efficient Enphase microinvertors along with the Enlighten real time monitoring software. Very impressed with the quality of products installed. Equally impressed with the quality of work done by installation crew and the finished look of the system. Been up and running since the end of January and up until July I have be producing more electricity than I have been using. Producing around 1000-1200 kWh month with my 28 panel array. Bottom line: very happy.

  • Fantastic. 5 Stars. "A" grade. At first. . . However, I purposefully waited one year to see how well the whole system worked. At the beginning of whole process, the Solar Designer (or whatever they're called) and Sales Person estimated I'd generate 11,033 KWH per year. 12 months just ended, and I ended up generating 9,732 KWH. So I'm disappointed in two ways: 1) I know it will vary, but I'm generating about 13% less than they estimated. Not sure why. 2) I reached out to Revolve about 8-9 times (lost count after a while) over 1 month. I went to their website and contacted them via the main "Contact" page, I emailed them, and I called them and left messages--repeatedly. No response. Their total lack of response probably has everything to do with them declaring bankruptcy, but I was under the impression they were just re-organizing their debt. It appears there is literally no one in the office at all. (If Revolve reads this, please contact me.)

  • Originally had the boys over for an energy audit and they talked me into doing energy saving windows and solar. Oneal was a hard bargainer but he was smart and sweet and they took great care of all my work.

  • I had done extensive research on solar power - technologies, best panels, best converters, and best installers. I was impressed with JP for 512 Solar and gave them a call. They were very responsive and set up a cost-free consultation during which JP made suggestions, showed me figures for output, costs and savings. 512 Solar then inspected my roof and discovered there were some problems with the original plan for the placement of panels due to the spacing of vent pipes. JP presented the maximum layout, and suggested different panels with higher output. From that point, the 512 Solar and Huiyun from their office handled everything, including dealing with Austin Energy and my HOA to make sure everything would go smoothly. The installation team was so professional, prompt and courteous that I felt completely comfortable with the job. Installation and inspection was completed ahead of time and I was online just before the 100 degree weather began in June. I can't recommend 512 Solar enough!

  • Fantastic company. I chose 512 Solar for their competitive price and thorough explanation of the process, system, and pricing. They were then excellent in all subsequent aspects: communication, installation ,inspection, professionalism, customer service. I recommend them highly. It may take time for the process to be complete if it's a peak season (late winter, early spring), but you'll always know where you stand in the queue. (Price listed is for 7 panels, before rebate and tax incentive.)

  • Short summary, 512 Solar did just great on the job! Unfortunately, the car didn't actually finally arrive until mid-May, so we didn't get to try it out until then. Sad that I couldn't file this review until now... However, it's been working just great; certainly no signs of issues. Their service was very responsive, they were very knowledgeable, and their prices were the best of the three services we contacted. One of them returned a considerably higher bid, and the other never provided a bid. I also like that they provided bids for three different options, e.g., keeping the dryer outlet live and doubling the capacity of the breaker box to provide a separate circuit for the chargers. I watched 512 Solar do the work, and it was done well. Now that the Prius Prime PHEV finally arrived, between this and the chargers at work and elsewhere, we have literally used no gas since we first charged the car at home! There are certainly no signs of issues with the installation (nor, just as an aside, the Clipper Creek LCS-30 charger itself, which appears to also have been a good choice). Thanks, 512 Solar for making my daily commute -- and my driving life! -- quieter, cleaner, and more responsive! Hopefully we can work together again sometime in the future to install some home solar as well.
