September 2022 — Best Company announces the top 15 solar companies in Texas. Companies are listed in their ranked order for the state of Texas, as listed on BestCompany.com.

Solar is hot in Texas. 

There are plenty of motivations: sustainability, soaring energy prices, undesirable utility contracts, and a goal for some degree of energy independence after the state-wide outage in February 2021. Keep in mind that without a battery storage system, solar panels are still reliant on a grid connection to power your home.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the number of solar panel shipments to Texas from overseas manufacturers last year was topped only by shipments to California.  

Regional coverage 

Our top companies list includes solar companies throughout Texas. However, each company listed may not cover all zip codes within the state — it is the largest state by area in the contiguous United States, after all. Contact your companies of interest directly for zip coverage confirmation.

How we rank 

As a word-of-mouth marketing platform, Best Company relies on consumer reviews to form the bedrock of its database and value proposition for customers and companies. 

To provide some context to these company ratings: to receive a score, a company must have at least 10 customer reviews on its profile. Our Best Rank algorithm takes into account the following criteria and weights:  

  • The average score of reviews — 72.5%
  • The volume of reviews — 22.5%
  • A company's responsiveness to reviews with a star rating score of 3 or lower — 5%

Recency is another important factor; reviews published over a rolling six-month period carry more weight than older reviews in calculating a company’s overall score. 

We do have partnerships with some companies on our site, through which we receive compensation. However, this compensation does not affect rankings or review scores.
