About Us

Our Story

Elias Solar, Inc. is a family owned and operated business that started in 2016. However, our story goes back to 2008 when we started researching and working on solar energy. We started by helping undergraduate students with their solar energy research projects, they had problems and asked Elias (also a student at the time) for help. Elias was able to help them which eventually lead to helping DIY solar installers. Helping DIY solar installers then lead to helping homeowners who had problems with their professional solar installations. Even though homeowners hired a licensed, certified, and professional solar installer, their solar energy systems were having problems and their installer could not, and in some cases would not, fix their own installations. Elias was able to diagnose and resolve their solar energy problems. Once Elias graduated we formed our own solar energy business.

We started out as Quality Solar Energy, Inc. but after looking into getting a trademark we notice there were 14 other “Quality Solar” throughout the country. We have since changed our company name to Elias Solar, Inc. and have a registered trademark on our name and logo. We are based in Houston and service almost all of Texas.
