Best Solar Providers

HESOLAR was fantastic from start to finish with our solar panel installation. Derrick was able to present a very through and competitive bid. Erick performed a site visit to confirm exactly what was needed, and Erick was also on site and involved the day of the installation. Derrick and Eric are the owners, not just salesmen and they have their own employees for the installation, not contractors. The installation of our 21 solar panels went quickly and smoothly. The job was very professionally done, and we are very satisfied customers. Following the installation, they even worked with PEC to get the final inspection completed and we are enjoying the difference in our electric bills. We highly recommend HESOLAR!

Listen to Whatever Company You Want But Choose HESolar

I listened to several presentations over the course of a year. By chance, after being unsatisfied, I came across HE Solar and boy am I glad it worked out. Instantaneous feedback from my first email. I had a virtual meeting, which allowed me to validate everything that was being said while it was being said. They looked at the roof the next day and I signed. Long story short...they do what they say, when they say they're going to do it. They handle the paperwork perfectly. Six weeks later I'm powering my house with solar. They even identified a roofing problem that has been there for seven years since the house was built and now I'm getting that fixed before total failure. Let the master electricians show you what they know how to do.

Best Company Ever

One word describes Eric and Derrick “Amazing”. Quick response time, works great with HOA (if you have one), and over all great quality work. Couldn't ask for anything more. We live in a neighborhood that is still being built and I’m starting to notice other company’s work and the look of ours is so much cleaner. I would recommend HEsolar to everyone I know 10 times over.

Would definitely use them again

I have only the best to say about my experience with HESOLAR. First, I love the product ( My solar rig quickly made me wish I had went 10 years earlier). Second, I wouldn't have changed anything about the installation, personnel, deal, support, or overall experience. Definitely am emphasizing a full 5 stars :)

HESOLAR was an amazing company to work with.

HESOLAR was very professional and did excellent work. I had them add additional panels to an existing system. There work was far superior to the previous work.

Satisfied Customer

I interviewed four companies. HESolar was the only company that did not send a salesperson. Derrick and Eric are the owners and master electricians of HESolar. You deal with them directly. Their sales approach is low key. In other words, they wish to provide their customers a quality, cost effective installation. They do not attempt to sell solar power to folks who have not yet decided that solar is for them. There are many solar power providers in the Austin area. I suspect many will fold once the Federal Government rebate goes away. HESolar's two owners are master electricians and will continue to be master electricians irrespective of the solar market. Thus, they will be there to support their customers long after many of their competitors have closed their doors. HESolar’s web site was the most informative of the solar web sites I reviewed. It is focused on educating the consumer rather than on selling a product. Would I use them again? You bet I would.

Great Company to work with

HE Solar installed our system in early 2018 after we spent many months investigating local solar companies. Derrick was very patient in answering our numerous questions over the course of that time and was very open to listen to our concerns and changes that we wanted to make to his initial design. Their quote was competitive, their references were strong, they offer options for US made equipment, as well as offered a small incentive discount. They set a date for the install and met it, completed in a timely manner and left the outside of our property as well as our attic in great shape. They have also been very good about follow up with us. A very good local company you can trust!

Solar Installation HESOLAE

I decided to go solar a year ago, partly to take advantage of the tax credit, partly to increase my property value and lower my monthly stultifies costs. Mete with Derrick found him to be very professional and thorough. They designed a system to fit my needs. Through the whole process no sales talk just straight talk. Since installing the system I have reduced my summer month electric bill from a maximum of $80.00 per month.

Impeccable professionalism

We interviewed several Solar systems installers (some would not listen to our specific needs, others wanted to only install equipment they selected, some price themselves out of this world, etc.) and immediately, HESolar stood out. First, Mr. Derrick Hoffman came by the house and spent the time to evaluate our needs, assess the house and answer our many questions. Additionally, for the equipment we requested, the quote was very reasonable and fair. When we finally decided to take the plunge, within a few days, Derrick came by with two of his qualified technicians and in two days had the entire install completed to spec. They took care of all the paper work, coordinating with the electrical company and scheduling the entire job. Once the electrical company came by to check the install, we went solar. As we had anticipated, Derrick and Eric Hoffman were punctual, professional and accommodating when needed. We cannot recommend them enough. It is so rare to find contractors who care about their projects and make sure all aspects are done properly and completely. We will be sure to recommend them to all our friends and business partners. Kudos.

great experience/service

Highly recommended! Very knowledgeable and informative during the initial consultation. Derrick (owner) was able to give me a quote for multiple configurations the same day. The process is tricky with HOA rules but Derrick filled out and sent over all the required paper work for us. The whole process was painless, quick, and the panels work and look great!
