COMPANY PROFILE

Freedom Solar incorporated as a photovoltaic (PV) installation company with the goal to become the #1 solar contractor in Texas, and a mission to provide complete solar solutions that outperform customer expectations.

Early on, our Founders built systems for Central Texas homeowners one project at a time. The company expanded as the demand for solar grew, and as time passed, Freedom won business from top corporate clients looking to save money by generating their own renewable power. Whole Foods, Office Depot, and the University of Texas all chose Freedom Solar because of their reputation for outstanding craftsmanship and customer service.

Today, Freedom Solar is the alternative energy source provider for thousands of residential, and hundreds of commercial clients across the State. The arrays save natural resources while generating millions of dollars for our clients.
