Erco Energy provides solar sales, design, and installation services to residential, commercial, and utility scale clients. In addition to providing solar services, Erco Energy also offers energy storage solutions and EV Charging Station installations. All work is done by NABCEP-certified professional technicians.
In conjunction with other partners, Erco Energy has worked to provide innovative solar solutions within the technology space. The company then offers clients access to these updated features and services. All systems are custom designed using tier-1 solar equipment. Interested clients can take advantage of a free consultation to determine costs and equipment needs prior to signing a contract.
To date, Erco Energy has completed over 1,900 projects in Texas alone. Erco Energy is a member of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and is an accredited business within the group. Erco Energy is also a partner of the EPI Center.
Most solar installation services solely offer on-grid solar installation on both residential and commercial properties. While that is a beneficial service, it does not address the needs of all clients. To combat this issue, Erco Energy offers installation of the following solar systems:
By offering all three solar installation types, Erco Energy is able to service a wide range of clients and meet all needs effectively.
Solar installation companies are starting to dabble in the installation of EV charging stations. Erco Energy is capable and licensed to install EV charging stations on residential and commercial properties, as well as for public use. Not all solar installation companies have this capability, let alone the training to handle varying installation types but Erco Energy does.
Some solar installation companies will offer monitoring solutions for clients interested in production of an installed solar system, however most companies offer this service in-house and conduct the monitoring on their own. With Erco Energy, clients have access to both a mobile app and cloud-based monitoring services.
Most solar installation companies rely on the technology and products created by solar manufacturers. While Erco Energy has these more traditional equipment partnerships as well, the company also works to produce its own products and technology. This is not seen by installation providers, so Erco Energy is taking the next step and offering a proprietary service most in the space are unable to provide.
Despite claiming to offer industry-leading warranties to clients, Erco Energy makes no further public mention of what those warranties entail. No details about term length for the warranties or what is covered are made clear, which is odd considering most companies use that as a selling tactic to reassure potential clients.
Typically, two warranties are made available to solar clients: equipment and workmanship. Equipment warranties are an average of 25 years and cover repairs and replacements if necessary. Workmanship warranties are generally 10 years in length and cover any issues stemming from installation work. It is unclear what warranties are specifically offered, and for how long, with Erco Energy.
Offering financing solutions to clients has become an industry standard within the renewable energy space. On average, a residential solar system will cost anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 to have installed. While this is the most cost effective way to have a solar system installed, not all property owners are able to purchase a solar system upfront and outright.
As a result, most solar installation companies partner with or offer financing solutions whether that is through a loan, lease, or PPA option. However, Erco Energy does not appear to offer any of these financing solutions to clients, and there is no public mention of alternative financing.
