Our review of Longhorn Solar over 1 month

Longhorn Solar sized & installed our Solar System 14 months ago. The system is producing per original objective. It is really gratifying that we have not had to pay an electric utility bill over the last several months having accumulated so many credits with our electric provider. We suffered hail damage on our roof during the first quarter of this year. Our panels, all mounted on the carport, were not damaged and continue to produce. Bottom line, we are very happy with the system Longhorn Solar installed for us.

Martinez78261, 2 weeks ago

My system has been down for over 6 weeks. Whatever they tell you, they don't monitor your system for you. I left multiple messages on their service line, over a week, all were ignored. Finally got a hold of someone in person and scheduled a service date (no mention of the previous messages they failed to return). The first available service date they gave me was in three weeks. Three weeks! Three weeks longer to wait until someone can even come out and look at my system. I'm really disappointed in Longhorn solar for misleading me in terms of how they "monitor" my system as well as an utterly unresponsive service team.

Installers description for their business

Longhorn Solar Mission: To make solar accessible to anyone who desires it by providing the best products at the best prices and installation by the most qualified TEAM that exists.

We achieve this mission by:

1. Doing extensive research on the products that we provide to give you the peace of mind that you are only seeing products with a Tier 1 rating and have been vetted for bank-ability. Bank-ability is important because a warranty from a company that is out of business is worth nothing.

2. Using our buying power to get the best price for the best production. There are some panels out there that claim to be a better product because of higher efficiency. Higher efficiency does not equal better. It equals more expensive. In the end, higher efficiency means they produce more electricity in a smaller space for a higher price. To make solar more accessible we have chosen slightly lower efficiency for a lower price.

3. Employing the highest trained staff in Texas. Longhorn Solar invests in training at every level. Currently, we employ several team members who hold NABCEP Solar certification in Texas. We are also one of the only companies to provide a 12 week training class for all of our new Account Managers. When you speak to a Longhorn Solar Account Manager, then you can rest assured that we know what we are talking about. We would be honored with the opportunity to provide you with a Solar System quote and then installation.
