Native installed a PV system for us in Blanco County at the end of 2014- a roof mounted, 33 panel 9.24mW system. The entire Native team we dealt with was professional, pro-active, and effective. An excellent experience all around. From sales, design, installation and follow up, we were favorably impressed. Proud to recommend Native! -Bernard Mollberg & Mollberg Piano Restoration

Well done at the beginning (discussions and design) and at the end (flipping the switch to on). The only difficulties we had with the install of our small 12-panel 400-series system was with CPM. CPM was backlogged which slowed the install of our system but we still got it done before the end of 2015 which is what I was counting on and was pretty persistent. Gary Royal was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, but our home builder was maybe not as supportive of solar, therefore we ended up with ground mount system instead of a roof mount, but that was really our only option. Val Paxson was great to work with. Final plans were solidified and contracts completed expeditiously. Stuart Prior made sure everything with the install was perfect. Except for one minor hiccup with an underground power line (which they corrected), all went very well. I am seeing the results now of our small system and am exceedingly happy we did this. Having had experience previously with another solar install company in New Mexico, I can honestly say that the Native folks have your best interests at heart and will work with you so you get what you want. I'm completely satisfied and have already started referring them to our neighbors!!!

James, Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We value the feedback we get from our customers. Its not always simple or easy, but we do strive to make getting a solar array a great experience for our customers. Thanks again and enjoy those savings! -NATiVE

My wife and I recently sold our house in San Antonio so I could finish my Construction Science degree in San Marcos. I have researched this company for a few years now and love what they are doing. I have a degree in Architecture and strongly believe in sustainability. I hope maybe one day to work for Native or a company similar and would love to incorporate as much sustainability in our new home as possible.

I've had my Solar system a little over 15 months now and I'm completely satisfied. The folks at Native were extremely professional from the moment we started talking to Jay (Sales) to our install team and Stewart (maintenance). Nothing but the highest praise for this team. If your thinking of going solar let Native show you how to fully benefit from various incentives and financing options available. The system they installed is top quality and having the ability to monitor my production is amazing. On a final note, my power bill was -$3 for July 2015, in Austin and after all the non-power related fees. Take that "the Man".

My husband and I were both born in Texas. We could not happier or more proud /pleased to work with such a highly recommended local company to realize our dream of building a net-zero energy use home. We are at the front end of our process/relationship with NATIVE, and I'll reserve the final star for a happy re-posting to include retrospective praise for each particular aspect of the build. So far, the knowledgeable folks from NATIVE have shown themselves to be both professional and Texas-friendly, willing to go a literal extra mile to get our job done.

wish i could afford the pannels. it is the next best thing. I hate paying for the wasteful over priced CPS energy that overcharges when I conserve so very much. I hate that they call me constantly when i can affort it.

Net zero since 2011. Still loving it. Have had one service call and it was taken care of quickly under warranty. We used Native again in 2014 for addition and extension of solar array.

My solar panels are working marvelously. With the high summer temperatures we have had the past week (expected in Texas) we essentially have free air conditioning while the sun is shining. Native was very professional in every aspect, from the initial contact (Valerie) to the final completion of the monitoring system.
