Freedom Solar - Profile & Reviews

Founded in 2007, Freedom Solar started as an installation company, constructing some of the largest solar projects in Texas. After establishing ourselves as a leading photovoltaic (PV) panel installer, Freedom Solar expanded the business model to offer services directly to residential, commercial, and institutional markets. Since that time, we have installed over 67 megawatts of solar panels, including more than 5,000 residential customers and hundreds of top Texas companies such as Whole Foods, Office Depot, Lake | Flato, and the University of Texas to name a few.

    "Outstanding Service and Professionalism from Mr. Stephen Galaviz"

    Reviewed Jul 17, 2020

    As a California and Texas homeowner for more than 20 years, I can tell you that this was my first time looking at Solar options. It was long overdue! I conducted my research and analyses on four top Texas companies by holding in-home interviews with each one of them. Of course, they all say “we’re number one” over their competitors. However, we all know that there could only be ONE number one. These four Solar company representatives had their own right to claim a particular featured “edge” against the competition. The lowest bid I received from company “D” was $13,170; the highest bid from company “C” was $27,772; the other two, company “A” and company “B” fell in between those estimates.

    Company “A” really stood out, not in cheapest cost, but in their professional salesmanship and presentation of their products inclusive of their warranties. I further read hundreds of reviews from an independent website https://www.solar-estimate.org/solar-panels/texas/ which is not related to any of the Solar installation companies. Company “A” was customer rated Number One at 5-Star for their service and products. This company is Sunpower by Freedom Solar https://www.solarreviews.com/installers/freedom-solar-power-reviews/ and their Senior Energy Consultant is Mr. Stephen Galaviz. Mr. Galaviz is a true professional and provided me and my family with a Solar Energy presentation that no other company even attempted to do. He precisely answered my multitude of questions about products, workmanship, warranties, and service after the sale. Moreover, he provided a tangible sample of his company’s panels and the competitor’s, to my surprise the Sunpower panels were flexible and very well made in comparison to its competition.

    Freedom Solar is the company I selected to build/install my Solar Energy system, thanks to Mr. Galaviz and Mr. Aaron Heth who worked with me to obtain the most efficient and cost-effective system for my family and home. I am truly appreciative of their knowledge and service throughout this installation, and look forward to developing a long-term business relationship with SunPower.

    Thank you so much Stephen and Semper-Fi!

    I had a tremendous experience with Freedom Solar. They were professional, responsive, and the process was very easy. From the first contact all the way through the install, Freedom Solar did an outstanding job. We highly recommend Freedom Solar for anyone looking to get solar.

  • "Beware of all warranties"

    Reviewed May 13, 2020

    After extensive research on PV panel efficiency, we decided that the Sunpower solar panels was one of the best on the market. So how did we end up with not getting solar panels on our house at all, the sales representation. Although the sales representative, John Simon, stated out well by comparing the SunPower panels warranty against the competition the sale went bad from that point on. He first ignored the KWH annually that we needed to generate for our home by 3,000 KWH more than our annual bill and then when he tried to adjust for this with less panels it appeared as though his main objective was to keep the price the same. When we finally received the last quote we found that not only was the production guarantee 4% less than Sunpower's 92% power and product warranty. This production guarantee was much less than the warranty of the product from the manufacture and the biggest indicator of why the product would not produce what the manufacture warrants is due to choices made by the installers. Therefore we felt that Freedom Solar was not backing up their suggestions of where panels should be placed on homes and decided not to install. we also realized that in the entire process, although we had talked about storing power, we never got a quote on that. Too bad Sunpower only uses one company for its installation services as they lost a potential customer.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback, and I'm sorry that you had this experience. It sounds like there was a miscommunication in the presentation of the production numbers. We'd be more than happy to revisit all of the numbers with you and review our warranty and production guarantee in order to ensure we're building a system that will fit your needs. Either way, we wish you the best of luck in your solar journey.

    "Great Panels But ..."

    Reviewed Mar 11, 2020

    The sales person Sarah, was very professional and high energy. Their panels and offer of the 40w panels was great. I did feel a little pressure to make a decision ASAP, and I was not ready for that, since I was still evaluating my options. No problem with that, and I believe Sarah understood my position. The main reason I did not go with Freedom Solar Power is because I need it to sign the contract to get a true assessment of the number panels and cost of the system for my house. The way I understood the contract, once I signed there were no backing out without a monetary penalty. What if the final and true assessment was going to be a $1k or more of the original quote provided? Again, based on my understanding, only if Freedom Solar makes the determination that system was not going to work for me, then the contract would be canceled without penalties. My roof is a 16/12 Pitch (53 degrees), I believed this would had required more panels than originally quoted at the first visit. But again, I would had to signed the contract before getting a final quote. But, I did feel good that Freedom Solar would had provided a good system and service; but the price could had being a little higher that what I wanted for a 70% of solar power recommended for my house.
    Sarah and Freedom Solar, thank you for your time and consideration on my request for a quote.

    I decided to go solar after few weeks of research. I received 4 different quotes from top rated companies and Freedom Solar Power had the best offer for my budget. I'm very satisfied with my system, the whole Freedom team was outstanding, from the salesman to the installers. They also have the best warranty (compared to the other 3 companies) and the panels are some of the best in the market.

    I have no negative comments about Freedom, in my opinion they are the best Solar Company in the market.

    After conducting extensive research with various top-rated solar companies, I am truly pleased to have chosen Freedom Solar as my main solar installation company. Freedom solar is simply the BEST solar company since they offer the best warranty, the panels are the best in the market and their staff (like Juan Gonzalez) are simply the best equipped to handle all complex questions regarding going solar...

    I deeply appreciate the professionalism and dedication of my Energy Consultant (JUAN GONZALEZ) who assisted me from the very start. Juan was extremely professional and explain everything there is to know about solar installations intricacies and the great benefits solar offers...

    Unfortunately, due to an urgent unforeseen family situation, I had to postponed my solar project until I come back to my hometown :(

    Despite, the obstacles and personal situations I am encountering, I am convinced I will come back to Freedom Solar to resume my solar installations since there is still time to benefit from the federal tax rebates and Freedom Solar world-class costumer service.

    A few months ago Freedom Solar swapped out my old system of Canadian Solar panels on a string inverter with more efficient SunPower panels and Enphase microinverters. Everyone at Freedom was great to work with - the designers and installers were perfectionists (in a good way!), the company founder even stopped by unexpectedly during the one-day installation to check in (and was able to advise us on a Level II EV charger), and the service department was knowledgeable and responsive. The entire team made the process easy, simple, and fast - their quality and service back up the positive reviews. Highly recommend!

    We had a Sunpower Solar Panel System installed by Freedom Solar Power in August of 2019. Everyone was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly from our Salesman Eric, project manager, and the entire install team. The panels look fantastic on our roof, the install team and engineers took great care in their placement to ensure they had the best array for production without sacrificing curb appeal! If we ever own another home Freedom Solar is the only company I would call. We're excited to make an environmentally conscious choice AND see savings on our electric bills! I recommend Freedom to anyone thinking about solar!

    What a great company to work with. I had constant communication throughout the entire project. John took the time to explain each step of the install process and equipment in detail on top of the many questions I had. Originally it was supposed to take two days to install my 13kW system, but they were able to finish it in one. I wish I could upload pictures to show how great their work is. They have been installing solar for 12 years where as others might only have a few years in the industry, so I know if I ever need warranty work they will be around. Also, the Enphase app makes it a breeze to monitor consumption, generation, and system health of each one of my panels. I truly recommend this company for your solar needs.

    After comparing quotes from several installers with panels from various manufacturers, I found Freedom solar was straight forward and offered the best value for a superior product at a very competitive price. Right from planning, design, installation until close out the entire crew from Kevin Cool@sales, installers and folks in back office did an awesome job. They were very thorugh, responsive and accomodative. I compared solar installations by other installers at various homes and i am very happy with the way Freedom installed my panels, with no visible wiring on the roof. If you are in the market for solar, I highly recommend checking out Freedom Solar. Favorable factors: + More wattage per panel vs competitors, + SunPower Panels made In USofA + Built-in Enphase micro-inverters vs optimizers from competitors, + 25 year complete all around warranty - Best in the market, + Awesome installer with competitive pricing

    I had 30 panels installed and am now on free days. I work from home and my son is home schooled so there is always someone here. Getting the days electricity for free is a great help to us financially. Freedom Solar installed the panels in one day. The entire process from Consultation to completion took just under 2 months. I am already considering more panels and going off grid.

    Freedom Solar worked with me to determine whether a solar installation was right or not for me. Kevin Cool was very thorough and knowledgeable, helping me consider all the components, both those provided by Freedom Solar or by others: additional structure needed for the panels on an existing building; ongoing cost with the electrical provider; size of system that was right for my installation, complete with construction drawings; tax rebate; and electrical rebate. I have not yet installed my system, but the upfront work has been excellent. I highly recommend Freedom Solar!

    After doing a bit of research, my wife and I decided to use Freedom Solar for our solar panel installation. While they weren't the cheapest option, they were definitely the best bang for the buck, in my opinion. I worked with Zach to figure out what hardware was needed, and Freedom solar did the rest.

    The system that we came up with perfectly meets our needs. The company was incredibly easy to work with. They took care of the entire process for me, all I had to do was sign a few places and pay. They even arranged the loan for me. The process was relatively quick, and handled professionally throughout.

    I honestly have nothing negative to say about my experience with Freedom Solar!
