Why take the chance on an inexperienced solar company who are more than likely to subcontract your installation to a 3rd party?
The decision to invest in solar is probably the largest investment decision you will make this year. Make sure you do detailed diligence into your chosen solar company.
With many less experienced local solar companies, corners are regularly cut in the design and installation of your solar system. Many solar companies choose to subcontract the labor component to 3rd party subs. This means that they have little to no control over the quality of installation and no accountability.
Every Alba Energy installation will be designed and built by full time employees of our company. This ensures we are able to guarantee excellence in each system we build. We provide you with a monitoring system to show you that the promises we made during the sales process are being delivered by your system.
Let our qualifications and professionalism speak for themselves. We are one of only 2 solar companies in the state who are registered professional engineers, we have 2 master electricians on staff and 4 NABCEP qualified PV professionals.
We had a 7kW solar panel system installed by Alba Energy in late January, and can’t say enough good things about these guys.
We did our research and had 3 other companies give us proposals and meet with us. From the very first call with Alba, we had a much more comfortable feeling than with other companies we had spoken with. They seemed more focused on helping us make an informed and educated choice rather than just sell. Tyler, our sales consultant, talked us through the proposed main components of our system (LG panels and Solar Edge inverters) and explained the reasons behind Alba’s recommendation of these products/manufacturers.
The final price for the system was comparable to the other companies (with the exception of one who was clearly a low-price, low-quality outfit), and that made the decision to go with Alba a no-brainer.
Alba helped with all the paperwork for the Austin Energy Solar Rebate, the Financing Application and even worked with our HOA to ensure that our system met their design requirements. Other than sign a few documents, we barely had to lift a finger. Amanda and Kelsey were really helpful in keeping us informed throughout the process and making sure we had realistic expectations around timelines.
When it came to the install day, the crew did a great job. Tomas, the project manager, talked me through the basics of how the installation would work and how the main components operate. The installation only took around 6 hours, and the crew were tidying up and getting ready to leave by mid-afternoon. I was really impressed with the professionalism of everybody who worked on the solar system. I’ve had plenty of contractors work on my property in the past, and these guys were amongst the best. All the little details like clean company trucks, matching uniform and safety equipment showed that they truly cared about their work. They left my property immaculately clean.
About 2 weeks later Alba came back out for the Austin Energy inspection, which passed without issue. This allowed them to turn the system on and connect my monitoring system.
All in all, great experience, great company. Looking forward to years of savings on my electric bill.
