The company founder, Earl Elwinger, was passionate and curious about how solar hot water systems worked. He had always had a keen interest in opening his own solar company. He finally took the leap in 1979.

Back then, solar wasn't very popular. Very few people understood how the systems worked. It would take all the passion, drive, and knowledge that Earl had to succeed at a totally new industry in an environment — with limited solar energy available at the time. Earl was joined by his father, Bill, later that year. Together, they vowed to do whatever it took to show the local Florida community what solar energy was all about — and make a difference.

Sitting under an oak tree on Spring Hill Drive, Earl and Bill discussed solar energy with the locals. Residents frequently stopped by and looked at the mobile display mounted on a trailer. It was hooked up to a solar hot water panel and a tank. This unit was constantly producing clean, free, and efficient hot water.

System after system, with word of mouth spreading around town, Nature Coast Solar began to grow. We expanded across Hernando, Pasco, and Citrus counties. After so much success, in 1983 the company also expanded into the solar pool heating field.

Although we have evolved so much over the last 43 years, we have never forgotten how our company was founded. It wasn't just the passion and drive from pioneers in the solar industry like Earl and Bill that helped make the company into what it is today. It was the loyalty, support, and belief from all of our customers that truly believe in solar who have brought us to where we are today.

Excellent company

We have had a wonderful experience with Nature Coast Solar. Any and all questions we had were answered and we were very comfortable going forward with Nature Coast Solar for our solar energy project. The most significant thing we liked about Nature Coast Solar is that they have been in business for many years and they are a locally owned business and we felt that was important. We were kept informed about every step of the process. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nature Coast Solar to our neighbors.

Happy customer

I don't really do reviews unless I am very impressed! This is the 2nd time I have had Nature Coast Solar Install a solar electric, solar hot water, solar pool heater and solar attic fans on my first house and now on my new home. My solar electric system makes more power than we use, we sell the excess back to the utility company. As for the solar hot water, for 10 months of the year I don't even have the water heater turned on. The solar pool heater doubles the time we get to use our swimming pool. Nature Coast Solar is one of those rare companies it is a pleasure to deal with. From the knowledgeable, polite, no pressure sales. Same with the installation crew, they were on time, well mannered, hard workers and cleaned up when they finished. The next day Anthony came by to explain the systems and answer any questions I had. I haven't had much experience with their service department, but when I called, they showed up the next day and fixed the problem. I wish there were more companies like this one. Keep up the good work guys!
