Texas Energy Experts
Solar Energy Contractors in Austin, TX
"This past June, I was talking to my neighbor about my sky high electricity bill and about how I suspected energy leaks throughout my house. He told me that he recently cut his electricity bill down significantly by fixing the same issue. Texas Energy Experts came out and did an energy audit throughout his home. They replaced his crappy windows and sealed the leaks in his attic with quality insulation. My neighbor seemed pretty happy. It was kind of strange because he had been fuming just like me a couple of months ago. I made a few phone calls, but the stark contrast in my neighbors demeanor was the defining factor that made me choose Texas Energy Experts. My wife was at home when the techs came out and did their work. She said they were very courteous and they cleaned up well after the job was done. I was impressed by what I saw when I came home from work that night. Fast forward 6 months and wow. My energy bills were dashed. Compared to last year, its like a different house! My wife had to remind me to leave this review because I’m so busy but these guys deserve it! Better late than never right? Anyway, if you want to save money for the long term on your electricity bill give Texas Energy Experts a call."

Sunpower by Freedom Solar
Solar Energy Contractors in Austin, TX
"I did my research and decided on Freedom Solar. Great customer service and communication! Everyone with the company was respectful and happy to be doing the work from the knowledgeable salesman to the efficient installers. They answered all my questions without being too markety and made the whole process, including getting city permits, a breeze. The SunPower solar panels and inverter products are of high quality as promised and definitely worth the little extra cost. Can't go wrong with this company!"

Tachyon Solar
Solar Energy Contractors in Austin, TX
"We wanted to install solar panels for the longest time but thought it would be too expensive. Tachyon came out and showed us how fast the savings on our electric bill would pay for the conversion. In 5 years, we’ll be making a profit on our panels! They redesigned how our whole house uses power. We are really happy. How many projects can you help the environment and save money too?"

Lighthouse Solar
Solar Energy Contractors in Austin, TX
"Jeff and his crew were extremely professional, courteous, and communicative throughout the entire installation process. Everything they touched was left in immaculate condition. Jeff even touched up some paint that got scraped off by a ladder. The Lighthouse team is clearly passionate about solar and really loves what they do. Jeff spent plenty of time geeking out with me about the equipment, metering devices, regulatory issues, and energy technology in general. Jeff even modified the design originally put together by our solar contractor (TreeHouse) to maximize energy collection. While it would have been easier to follow the original plan, Jeff wanted to make sure our investment would pay off as quickly as possible."

Longhorn Solar
Solar Energy Contractors in Austin, TX
"Shane from Longhorn Solar was great to work with over many months from the time we began looking into solar until the time we actually chose a contractor. Shane kept me up to date on our local utility's incentive programs, provided multiple proposals to suit my desire for exploring every option available in terms of technology and panel layout. Longhorn's price was the best of all four of the solar companies that gave us quotes. If we could pay with cash, we would have chosen Longhorn for our project. However, we needed to finance the project... and Longhorn does not have (at the time of this writing) very good interest rates available on their financed systems. We were able to get a 2.99% interest rate through another company, so that is what made the difference in our decision."

What types of residential solar power systems do solar energy contractors design and install?

Solar power systems are part of the growing energy efficiency trend. You may be wondering, what is solar energy, exactly? Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun, and is then converted into electricity and/or utilized for heating air or water.

The most common types of alternative energy systems for the home are solar electric, solar water heating and wind power systems. Solar professionals can help with everything from installing solar skylights to implementing complete solar energy systems.

Let’s say you want a solar electric system for your home. An off-grid system basically consists of solar panels and battery banks. These battery banks store the sun’s energy so you can use electricity at night or on a cloudy day. This system is designed to keep household electricity running for about two or three cloudy days; longer cloudy periods require a backup generator. To install an off-grid system, you’ll want to hire a certified Texas solar energy contractor. You can find more solar energy contractors in Sunset Valley, Cedar Park, Pflugerville, Hays and Mountain City.

Along with off-grid solar, wind and hybrid energy systems that include batteries and backup generators, there are also grid-tied solar and wind operations. Grid-tied systems are attached to your Austin, TX utility company so if you produce more energy than you use, your meter goes down and you build up energy credits.

Installing solar skylights can save electricity. Sun tunnel skylights are tubular daylight devices that capture sunlight through domes on your roof. Attached to these domes are highly reflective tunnels that draw natural light down into closets, hallways and stairways.

Questions to ask potential solar energy contractors:

  • How long have you been in the business?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
  • Do you have state certification?
  • Will you come to my home for a free onsite consultation?
  • Are you able to repair an older system?
  • Can you provide me with a layout to see where the panels will go and what they will look like?
  • Can you give me any information on Texas solar rebate programs?
