The Good

  • Financing Solutions
  • Panel Removal Service
  • Complimentary Services
  • Solar Battery Options

Financing Solutions

To provide a more comprehensive service, The Solar Cowboys has partnered with Mosaic to provide $0 down loan financing solutions. 

Panel Removal Service

Most solar contractors or installers are focused on selling and installing solar systems with little regard to what happens if a system needs to come off the roof for any reason. The Solar Cowboys has gone the extra mile by helping homeowners with potential removal techniques in the event that the panels and inverters need to be removed. The Solar Cowboys will remove and reinstall solar systems, even if the company itself was not the original installer. 

Complimentary Services

Many solar installation companies utilize aggressive sales tactics, but The Solar Cowboys takes a different approach. Instead, the company focuses on educating potential customers and letting them make an informed purchasing decision. The Solar Cowboys offers a number of complimentary services to equip potential clients with as much information as possible, including an energy evaluation, in-home consultation, and quotes.

While some of these services are offered as complimentary solutions by other installation companies, all of them are rarely free of charge. 

Solar Battery Options

In order to help clients increase their energy independence, The Solar Cowboys is certified to install two  battery storage solutions. These systems are compatible with a number of panel and inverter brands, allowing for seamless energy production and storage for later use. The Solar Cowboys is authorized to install the Al Storz Power and Enphase battery systems.

While many solar installation companies have started to offer solar battery solutions, few are authorized dealers of some of the best storage technology on the market and have the ability to help clients obtain off-grid endeavors like The Solar Cowboys.

The Bad

  • Limited Service Area
  • Limited Workmanship Warranty

Limited Service Area

As a locally owned and operated enterprise, The Solar Cowboys works to provide a competitive service within a comfortable geographic area. Currently, The Solar Cowboys only service the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas. Outside of this service area, The Solar Cowboys will not be able to take on the project. Many competitors, both in and out of Texas, are able to service more than just one metro area in any given state. 

Limited Workmanship Warranty

Since The Solar Cowboys offers panel removal services, the company has opted to offer a limited workmanship warranty. Technically, all this warranty covers is roof penetration mistakes. Unfortunately, this warranty lasts only 10 years, which is average for the industry. Top competitors offer more robust workmanship warranties covering 25 years.

The Bottom Line

The Solar Cowboys offers residential and commercial clients end-to-end solar solutions in an effort to make clean energy more accessible and affordable. The company also offers panel removal services.

The Solar Cowboys are equipped to handle removal and reinstallation needs. Each interested client can take advantage of a number of complimentary services prior to making any sort of commitment. This allows clients to make an informed solar decision. The Solar Cowboys are certified installers of tier-1 solar battery solutions, completing off-grid solar needs. 

While there are a number of beneficial services available through The Solar Cowboys, there are limitations to what the company offers clients as well. The service area is restricted to the DFW area, limiting who can work with The Solar Cowboys. The company also offers a limited workmanship warranty.

Those interested in learning more about how solar can positively impact a property or those looking for a customized mounted or tied solar system will likely benefit from what The Solar Cowboys offers to clients.

Jessica Hunter Lewisville, TX

The sales process was fine with Nick, but beyond that, the process took way too long. We signed a contract in May and did not get up and running until end of September. And the communication received in between was few and far between. Additionally, the newer hire, Jessica, was not impressive. She told me incorrect information and was not helpful when I asked questions. She also mainly would communicate on weekends rather than normal business hours which made it tricky to connect. I understand her business hours include weekends, but 5pm on a Saturday is not the time to reach customers.

We had chosen another major co. It was 6 months into it & nothing had gotten done not even a permit was started. Then they had a major lay off of about 150 employees & we just wanted our solar up & running. We switched to solar Cowboys, which we should have gone with from the very beginning. Within a week they were out putting up the infrastructure & by the time they were done the permit was done at almost the same time. They were fast, hard working, trust worthy & did everything they so as they would do. I recommend them highly ! They had a better price & are a smaller younger hungry business without the Corp overhead & can offer that savings to the customer.

These guys are the pinnacle of blue collar, honest and hard working service company. I will NEVER use anyone again for my solor panel needs. From cleaning and maintenance to service and installation. Look no further and do yourself a favor and call them for any of your solor needs!
