About Nature Coast Solar

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 Hudson, 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.
