You wouldn’t let any average contractor from the Home Depot parking lot remodel your kitchen or replace your roof, right? By that same notion, it’s important to speak with a highly-trained, highly-skilled, licensed installer when researching solar for your home or business. We’ve compiled a guide below for finding the BEST solar installers in Texas!

Utility Partners

One of the best ways to find a knowledgeable, high-quality solar installer is through your local utility or power provider. Every solar system that gets connected to the grid must be inspected and signed off by a representative of the company that maintains the grid. And since the Texas energy industry is pretty tight-knit, people interact with one another frequently throughout the year.

Calling your utility and asking about local installers is the quickest way to obtain a list of solar professionals. You may be surprised to learn that CASH rebates and other financial incentives are being offered by your utility to give you an added reason to go solar.
Many of these rebate programs require that you select from a specific list of licensed installers. For example, here are links to CPS Energy's Registered Solar Contractors and Austin Energy's Solar Contractors List. Visit your electric provider’s website to view registered solar contractors and learn more.
