Solar Panel Installation reviews in Austin

    512 Solar
    512 Solar installed our panels several years ago and we are still very happy with them. The company has consistently gone above and beyond. They even came in to do a checkup on the system.

    IES Texas Solar
    I highly recommend IES. What I liked most was that they had good reviews, they did not pressure me, they had the best price by far, and they were punctual and professional with the installation. I worked with Dan on the proposals. He patiently explained everything and answered all of my questions. And, he was always available by phone, text, or email to answer questions. I took me a couple months to review other companies and ultimately decide, and he never pressured me at all during that time. The price from IES was far better than the 2 other companies I got proposals from. And even when I directly asked the other two if they could beat that price, they could not. Kate got all of the permits and inspections in order. I barely had to do anything but review some documents. Then Judy took over to set up the installation and final details. A team of 5-6 guys showed up at 8am sharp and were finished before noon. They were very courteous and professional. Two days later the city inspected the system, and the day after the electric company completed the final inspection. All tolled, from signing the proposal to installation and power on, was 2 and a half weeks! Impressive! I was a little nervous to pull the trigger on this decision, but IES made it it so easy.

    HESolar, LLC
    One word describes Eric and Derrick “Amazing”. Quick response time, works great with HOA (if you have one), and over all great quality work. Couldn't ask for anything more. We live in a neighborhood that is still being built and I’m starting to notice other company’s work and the look of ours is so much cleaner. I would recommend HEsolar to everyone I know 10 times over.

    Longhorn Solar
    The company was great. My main contact person, Thomas Cunningham, gave us thorough information and details about how the system would work, how much it would cost, the break even information, and how we could expect the installation/permitting/rebate processes to go. Our interaction with him felt super low pressure which was a *very* important part of our decision to go with Longhorn. (I added both solar and electrical as services here even though the main purpose in hiring was for the solar. They naturally had to do a lot of electrical work and I would recommend them for that part of their service as well.) The company handled the design of the system, city rebate process, permit process, and inspection process without a glitch and very little effort on our part. Getting scheduled took a little while, but not too long based on all of the points that were necessary in order to get it done and they managed our expectations with regards to the timeline. I think we might have found the system at a somewhat lower cost, but we liked the history of this company and their warranty in addition to our experience with our main contact point for them. (The cost I indicated here is without any rebate included. We got a $3500 Austin Energy rebate and paid cash, so no loan associated costs. We have yet to get the federal tax incentive. In the end, the cost will end up around $21 - $22K total vs. the $35K up front out of pocket costs. The incentives are not going to be this high in the future, so the sooner the better if you're on the fence.) Our first full month of billing (Oct/Nov) already got us a decent solar credit on our bill and the system is working as we expected. I never felt that the company was using the point of savings as their selling point. Managing one's own expectations with regards to this issue is vital and, I feel, having something other than reducing the energy associated bill payments as a primary concern for making the choice is vital in this process - you either pay for the energy or you pay for the solar system, generally for many years. In the long run, it will be worth it financially, but it's several years to get to the break even point. I definitely feel comfortable recommending Longhorn based on our interaction with Thomas, the way the company as a whole handled the process from start to finish, and the way the installers and electricians worked on our property. We have only had the system a short while and have had no issues, so I cannot speak to how they handle any potential problems that arise with their installed systems. Based on other reviews, I think they will be solid there as well, but I will update this information if possible if we ever do need to have a problem addressed. We have continued to receive follow up contact from Thomas just checking in on how the system is working for us which we appreciate.

    Matthew Lorand Roofing
    I'm very impressed! From my initial call to Jason, the 2 fans were ordered and installed the following week. What I like about Matthew Lorand Roofing are the photos they provide to show the quality of their work. Professionalism all around.

    CRsolar Electrical Contracting
    I had CR Solar design and install a 9 kW solar system on my roof. The panels were black monocrystaline with microinverters. The racking is essentially invisible. That combined with the black color make the system as appealing as possible. I had a quote from SunPower and their quote for a very similar system was 50% higher than the quote that CR Solar provided. The solar payback period would have not been viable in my opinion with the higher quote. I am inside of Austin, but a customer of Pedernales Electric and so the only rebate available to me is the federal rebate so keeping the cost low was essential. CR was exactly what I needed. Chris and his team were knowledgable, flexible and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend CR Solar.

    Voyage Solar Energy LLC
    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.
