Longhorn Solar did an amazing job from start to finish. I highly recommend Longhorn...they are 100% local and are always responsive...maybe even more so after the sale! Kelli Corzine, Longhorn's Customer Service Director, was clear in all of her communications regarding scheduling. She was friendly and helped answer all of my questions. The entire system was completed in one day and my very first bill with solar was .77 cents!
Had an awesome overall experience with Longhorn Solar. Compared quotes from 4 places. Longhorn was the most cost effective and also had great communication. They made getting the proper documentation from the HOA and the inspection with the Austin Energy a breeze. The installation team put up the entire array in one day and tidied up. There was one panel that was not aligned perfectly and they came back the next day to repair it. The panels look great on the house. From signing the contract to having the system produce electricity for us was done in less than a month. I have a family member who went with a different unnamed but popular company and he started the process before I did, but they screwed up installation and he is still not close to up. Highly recommend Longhorn. If you have questions or want more details, PM me and I would be happy to give you my input.
My experience with Longhorn Solar was excellent. Before providing a quote, they measured my roof, did a shading analysis, and accurately assessed my annual electric usage. From there, they put together an accurate and comprehensive proposal that was more detailed (and believable) than any of the other quotes I received. No other company got on my roof or accurately determined what size system I would need based on my usage patterns. Only Longhorn Solar included the inevitable inverter replacement cost in their projections. Others were happy to leave this out.
We have watched, for the past 2 years, as Longhorn Solar has transformed our Southwest Austin neighborhood into a micro-power plant. It seems like once a month we drive home and see another house has gone solar. Their crews seem to finish every house in 1 day and all that remains is the ubiquitous Longhorn sign in the yard letting us know that yes, it was in fact, another homeowner who chose Longhorn...By all accounts, this company seems to be top notch based off everything we have seen and heard from neighbors.
From the initial sales call to follow ups every 6 months, everyone I have spoken with at Longhorn Solar is super knowledgeable, helpful, straightforward and caring. Nobody tried to oversell me. The process of finding just the right system size was a consultative approach...I recommend Longhorn Solar to anyone I''d use them again if I had to do it all over again. Great customer service all around and phenomenal communication from everyone I interacted with at Longhorn Solar.
Everything we were told, came true. Installation was quick and painless...heck we were out for the day and returned to a completed Solar PV install on our house!! Pretty talented group of installers at Longhorn. The installers are all Longhorn employees rather than a crew sub contracted by Longhorn (the competition subbed out the work and this was a big deal for us). All in all, very glad we went solar!
After doing research for solar on our home in Mueller, and as part of a multi-neighbor group, we decided on Longhorn Solar. They offered quality equipment at a great price, without over-selling. They handled things with the City of Austin and installed the system in a timely and professional manner. We have had our solar for over a year now and we have been incredibly pleased with how well it has been working!
From the time of first contact, these guys have been professional and reliable. They do what they say and communicate very well. The work seemed very professional - electric conduits were properly marked and properly grounded (I'm an EE). They went the extra mile to color match and paint the pipes coming in from the roof. During the system sizing discussions, they made some great suggestions and looked over my data and ROI analysis and quickly worked it out to my benefit. They promised a 60 day work timeline and were done in 2 weeks!
After interviewing 3 solar companies, and speaking with another Longhorn Solar customer, I chose Longhorn Solar to install my 5.6 kW system in Austin, Texas. Longhorn is an established solar company- they also had the best bid. They walked me through the process, including taking advantage of state and local tax incentives. Installation took only one day. I would definitely do business with Longhorn again.
