Solar installation in Austin, TX

A premium experience

We’re ATX Solar, a solar installation company based in Austin backed by the latest technology, the best-looking installs, and a team committed to excellent service throughout every step of your project.

Solar Installation

Make the switch to clean energy. With solar, you can reduce your carbon footprint and your monthly utility bills, all while getting an excellent-looking upgrade that raises your property value. Each system we design is tailored to you and your home, ensuring a superb fit aesthetically and for your energy needs. 

Battery Storage 

Sustain your solar energy with premium battery storage solutions. Without battery storage, your excess energy will be sent back to the grid. This add-on allows you to keep all the energy you generate, and use it during down periods. Grid outages and blackouts don’t have to keep you in the dark with solar battery storage. 

Premium Warranty

We believe in our craftsmanship and stand by the industry-leading products we use. Our premium warranties ensure your system is supported for years to come. ATX Solar offers a 30-year workmanship warranty, in addition to the 25-year performance and product warranties certified by our panel manufacturer, REC.

No, there is no lien on the home. The lender files a UCC-1 or fixture filing, meaning that the lien is only on the panels not on the house. So if you decide to stop paying for them, then they’ll just be removed from your roof. But if you pay your power bill every month, there’s no reason not to just pay a solar payment that’s lower and will never go up.

It depends on how soon you need the roof replaced.


1. If your roof is very old or damaged, we would recommend getting it replaced before you install panels. However, if this is the case, look into rolling the roof cost in with the solar panels, because you can actually get the 26% federal tax credit applied to the whole total and get part of your roof paid for this way.


2. If your roof doesn’t need to be replaced but you’re worried about what will happen when you need to get it replaced in the future, you have three options when you get solar installed:


0-5 year old roof: You won’t need to replace the entire roof if you install solar right away. The panels offer protection from the elements wherever they are placed and usually do not need to be removed for a roofing contractor to complete the job. Just make sure you let them know before they begin so they are aware.


5-15 year old roof with insurance claim: Your insurance will cover the removal and reinstallation of the panels, since they’re a part of the sturcture of the home. You can either have the roofing contractor complete the entire job or you can call us and we can remove the panels, store them, and reinstall them when the roof is complete.


5-15 year old roof no insurance claim: You will be responsible for paying for the removal and reinstallation of the panels. Many roofing companies are now certified to do this type of work, just make sure you let your contractor know that you have solar before they begin work.

If you’ve already decided you want to move in the next year to two, solar may not be a good fit for your current home, but reach out to us once you get settled and we can build a proposal for you to see what solar would look like on your new home!


If you’re planning on staying in your home for at least two years or more, you have two options when you go to sell your home once the panels are installed:


1. Transfer the system: you can transfer the entire system to the next homeowner and have them take over the monthly payment. All you need to do is make sure they qualify for the system, but if they qualify to purchase your home then they should have no problem qualifying for the transfer of the system. For them, taking over this payment will be preferable over paying whatever utility costs are 2+ years from now. They may even thank you for locking in a low rate with solar and lowering the house’s carbon footprint!


2. Sell it with the house: you may also choose to include the value of the system into the asking price of the house. Depending on the market and the area you live in, the exact value of the system can fluctuate, but according to a Berkeley Labs study done in 2015, the average premium that can be added for a solar system in the US is $3.78/watt.


Example: Joe Smith puts a 6kW system on his home in Austin, TX. At a rate of $3.78/watt, he would add $22,680 to the value of his home worth $300,000 because $3.78 X 6000watts = $22,680. That would make the asking price of the home $322,680 and Joe would then use those profits to pay off the system. The next homeowner would then enjoy the benefits of the lowered/eliminated utility cost normally assocaited with powering the home.

Yes! All of our proposals are custom built to your electric needs, so we can be sure that we’re helping you lock in a monthly bill that isn’t much more than your average and hopefully saves you money in your first month! With us, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solar system. Typically, a lower electric bill is actually beneficial when looking into solar. Especially if you don’t have a lot of roof space available, because you’re more likely to be able to fit the number of panels needed to offset your usage from the grid.


Of course, your electric bill may seem low now but, just like everything else, it will go up! According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average price of residential electricty in the US went from 13.49c/kWh in Sept 2020 to 14.19c/kWh in Sept 2021. That’s a 5.2% increase in one year!

We pride ourselves in providing premium equipment at standard pricing. We offer industry leading black-on-black monocrystalline panels and microinverters. This means that are installations not only outperform our competition but they look better while doing it.
