Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

We live in Cedar Park, Texas, a suburb of Austin. We moved here 10 years ago from the Midwest for better job prospects and to escape the snow.

Why did you decide to switch to solar energy?

We had been tracking solar energy for years and were just waiting for an opportunity where the price was right. Our decision was mainly for environmental reasons, but we also believe in “voting with your wallet” and “putting your money where your mouth is.”

How much did you know about solar energy?

I was familiar with the technology but didn’t know many of the more technical details.

What kind of system did Alba Energy install for your home?

The solar power system Alba installed for us uses 27 black on black solar panels that are 290-watts each. The total system size is 7.83 kW or 7,830 watts of power. We wanted to offset more than half of our electricity bill using solar energy.

What made you choose Alba Energy for your solar installation?

Quenton did a great job of sitting with us and answering all my questions (and follow up questions!). We did our research and Alba was rated highly online with many positive customer reviews. We liked the previous examples of their work and that Quenton was always responsive via email.

What was the process of going solar like?

It was actually pretty easy! Alba took care of just about everything for us: paperwork, inspections, etc. Once we decided on the system and financing it was very nice to be able to sit back and be updated on what was going on and when. The actual installation took less than a day and everyone we interacted with throughout the process was helpful and friendly. The system even comes with a nice website to monitor production and a companion app that does the same.

What was the most difficult part of the process for you?

As with any major purchase, we feared “buyer’s remorse” or asking ourselves, “Did we make the right decision? Should we have waited?” Etc. We’re happy to report that since the panels have gone up we haven’t had any buyer’s remorse and we are very happy.


What benefits have you seen from going solar?


We were incredibly anxious to see our first full month’s electric bill after the system was installed. We were ecstatic to see that our bill dropped close to 70%! Our neighbors have all been asking about the system and the benefits and we have nothing but good things to tell them. Since one of our decision points on going solar was environmental, we also feel great about that. The companion app tells us that we have saved the equivalent of 30 trees worth of CO2 – so that’s kind of cool :)

What would you say to someone who is interested in going solar?

To everyone that has asked I have told them that the experience was great. We were able to take advantage of current tax policies and a generous solar rebate to cut the cost of our system by more than a third. Since we recently (<5 years) got a new roof, panels were the obvious choice (25 year warranty!), and the financials lined up. The fact that we’re doing our part to help the planet and “voting with our wallet” is just a cherry on top :)
