Since its founding in 2007, South Texas Solar Systems has installed more than 900 solar projects across the state of Texas on both residential and commercial properties. Not only does the company install renewable energy systems, but South Texas Solar Systems also distributes small wind, solar thermal, and solar water pumping products and systems.
In addition to providing commercial and residential solar installation services, South Texas Solar systems also has experience in managing and dealing with off grid solar panels and systems. South Texas Solar Systems is an elite installer of Panasonic Solar equipment and has maintained an A+ grade with the BBB. The installation team is certified with the NABCEP as well.
South Texas Solar Systems continues to help homeowners find unique ways to save in an era where homeownership costs are rising. Additionally, the company offers a referral program to clients looking to reduce the cost of their own installation and system purchase.
While South Texas Solar Systems is an elite installer of Panasonic equipment, the company still maintains top tier partnerships with the biggest names in the solar manufacturing industry. These partnerships benefit clients as each client receives a customized system specifically tailored to the property’s needs. Many “certified” installers of specific equipment can only install that brand of equipment. Those restrictions do not apply to South Texas Solar Systems and the client benefits in the end.
Solar installation companies almost always offer residential and commercial solar installation services. That is not a proprietary service. However, South Texas Solar Systems has gone above and beyond offering off-grid solar solutions to clients. For those looking to live “off the grid” or for clients that endure adverse weather conditions, a custom designed off-grid solar system could be the ideal solution. South Texas Solar Systems installs the following off-grid systems:
These off-grid solutions provide energy alternatives where they would otherwise not be available, servicing a need many Texans currently have.
After a solar installation company installs a system on the roof, service typically ends there. Once the system is in operation, many clients will never hear from their solar installation company again.
That is not the case with South Texas Solar Systems. The company offers solar maintenance work to solar customers regardless of what company installed the system. If inclement weather damages the system, South Texas Solar Systems can replace the panels. If the system is not functioning at a level it should, the company will troubleshoot the cause. This maintenance service helps clients that are left with a partially operational system in need of solar expertise.
Typically, solar installation companies will solely use manufacturer partnerships to order systems and have them installed on various properties. South Texas Solar Systems has found a new way to utilize these partnerships, allowing clients to purchase individual products in an “a la carte'' method.
Entirely online and through secure payment methods, clients can purchase additional solar panels, portable solar generators, goal zero products, solar security lights, 360 intelligent solar LED lights, solar LED lights, and solar backpacks. For products that require some form of installation, South Texas Solar Systems will do it for a minimal charge. Otherwise, clients can enjoy solar products that are not generally made available to them. Additionally, the solar provider installs solar water heating and solar pool heating solutions.
South Texas Solar Systems is committed to serving military and first responder communities in the Lone Star State. As a result, the solar installer provides special discounts and financing options for active military personnel, veterans, and first responders. The company has also completed solar installations on a number of military and government facilities throughout the region.
Most solar installation companies offer some sort of financing option to clients. On average, a solar system will cost a residential property owner in the United States anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 for installation and equipment costs. Traditionally, solar installation companies will provide some sort of loan, PPA, or other lease agreement to clients that are not able to finance the entire system upfront and outright from the get go.
While South Texas Solar Systems offers a sort of “delayed” payment option, it is not really a financing option. Clients do not have to put any money down initially, can take advantage of the 26 percent federal tax credit, and then do not need to make payments for two months after installation. However, after that initial agreement, clients will need to come up with the rest of the money which could create a financial strain on many homeowners.
A vast majority of solar installation companies only provide services in one state or a select few cities. A few solar installation companies have been able to break the mold and offer services in multiple states or cover a region of the country. However, that is not the norm and not all companies are able to justify these expansions.
South Texas Solar Systems has expanded over time, but still remains solely serviceable in the state of Texas. More specifically, the company offers installation services in the following cities:
This service area drastically reduces the number of prospective clients South Texas Solar Systems is able to help.
Few verified South Texas Solar Systems reviews have been published on Best Company, and these reviews are mixed. Individual reviewers cited issues with transferring the financing paperwork they obtained through South Texas Solar Systems when selling their home, while another reviewer mentioned issues at every step of the installation process, ranging from the company ordering and installing the wrong parts and multiple lapses in communication.
Granted, these are isolated incidents that the company has yet to respond to, and may or may not accurately reflect the company as a whole. Having more verified reviews on the company’s profile would help put these reviews in context and provide a more accurate picture.
