Corey and the Circle L team are amazing! They were so helpful every step of the way. They answered all of my questions (and I had a lot), and were very patient. The panels look great on our roof. I’m super excited to start using them and saving money. I definitely recommend them for the solar panel process.

Brad, over 1 month

Contract was written with Circle L solar to do an energy overhaul of my residence. A 1450 Sq. Ft brick house in the 77303-zip code in built out neighborhood. The contract was for a high efficiency A/C, heating system, triple pane windows, solar panels with 20 years’ worth of monitoring and the ceiling insulated. Contract was done at the end of December 2018. System was supposed to provide for 100% of my electrical needs. Provides for less than 1/3rd. American Standard Platinum system. Solar L does not do any installations of A/C Systems, windows, installation etc... they contract out for the install. This particular system has a high efficiency rating on the A/C part of the system and a rating similar to the one replaced in the heat side of the system (Natural gas). A/C was installed at the end of January. Good - had it done in a day. Bad – A/C was installed with the filter, controls and access panels on the wrong side of the A/C in relation to the attic access. (Suspect it was because the electrical wire and the gas would have had to be rerouted) Initial problems- Filter access Gas exhaust pipes put in upside down. Had cut security system camera cables.(Not resolved) Outside unit not level. Attic unit not level. Items fixed by Solar L sub-contractors (Had 2 different sub-contractors , after the 4th visit from the first one I refused to let them work on the system because every time they would fix something they would cause something else to become wrong.) I hired another company to do the duct work and they flipped the filter, so it was accessible. Retrospect- Should of did like my neighbor - $8500 for AC/heating system with duct-work. Windows – From : A Window Inc., Ft Worth Texas - Delivered March 9, 2019 the first time. The wrong windows were ordered, 2 pane instead of 3 pane. Circle L representative said on phone it was because 3 pane windows were too expensive, so they were going to only order 2 pane windows. Initial contact was for 3 panes, he offered to give me 3 free solar panels to just take the 2 pane windows. I declined. Bid from local installer was $6000 for 3 pane windows. Have had 4 visits with windows and I am still waiting for one screen. In Retrospect- should have ordered from the local installer.(Houston, cheaper and same exact windows) Mission Solar Panels, MSE305SQ8T, Solar panels were installed March 19th, 2019. I was told they did all the paperwork for install and taxes, they do for the install but you have to check or the process will never complete. They do not do the paperwork for property taxes. Panels turned on May 9th, 2019. ( 50 days later) Panels went down July 12th, 2019. (64 days later) Panels back into service August 14th, 2019 (33 days later) after I called twice and asked why the panels weren’t producing power. System is a 7.5kv system.Not producing 90% to 100% of electric bill.Retrospect- Should have went with the straight up solar install instead of packaging with other services. And did a battery back up

Installers description for their business

Save 40 - 100% on Your Energy Bills with a Free Energy Assessment.

As a homeowner, you may not realize it, but your home is probably not as efficient as you think. According to Scientific American, "some 99 percent of American houses are "sick" - damp, drafty, dusty, noisy and expensive to heat and cool - and could be made at least 30 percent more energy-efficient with highly cost-effective, tried-and-true energy-efficiency improvements," An inefficient home is like throwing money away every single month.

The problem is, most homes were built when energy efficiency wasn't a topic on everyone's mind. Now that there are several green, energy efficient solutions available, most homeowner's don't know where to begin. Our advisors specialize in whole-home solutions so you can rest assured that we will recommend remedies that your structure needs, giving you unbiased solutions.



While most companies will only focus on one aspect of a structure, we look beyond to find areas of inefficiencies and energy loss. This all starts with the discovery process. We provide a FREE energy assessment and analysis of your home or business to identify what, if anything, can be done to reduce your consumption and costs. We will create a custom package using one or more products from the list below:


Solar Energy
LED lighting
Spray Foam Insulation (Open & Closed Cell)
Insulation Removal
Blown-in Insulation
Reflective Insulation
Hybrid Water Heaters
Water Heater Timers
Tankless Water Heaters
Energy Efficient Doors
Duct Sealant
Window Sealant
Weather Stripping
Programmable, Smart Thermostats
Energy Efficient Roofs
Pool Pumps
Solar Screens
HVAC
Solar Carports
Solar Storage Buildings (24x24 - 60x40)
Solar Attic Fans
Battery Technology
Off Grid Systems
Hybrid Systems


Here is how we differ from 95% of all solar companies. We choose to take a much more logical, repair based approach. With solar panels being the most expensive in terms of kw reduction per dollar spent, it makes sense to look at the home from the inside out. Can you fill your roof with solar panels, absolutely, but the truth is, the more efficient home you have, the smaller system you need to power it. But there is more to it than that. A number of high value auxiliary benefits come with taking this approach, value you will not receive with solar only. Still, untimely it all comes down to what your home needs.
