Tampa Solar was founded by Alan Dostal in 1983. Alan had just gotten a solar system installed for his domestic hot water, and was so impressed with solar that he asked the installer if he would be interested in a partner for his business. When the man said no, Alan replied, “Well, I guess you have a new competitor.” Alan began installing solar systems soon after.

Today Tampa Solar, a family owned and operated company, is the oldest Heliocol dealer in the country. Alan’s son Kyle, who began working for the company as soon as he could carry a tool belt, now runs all of the sales, service, and installations. His passion for superior workmanship has earned Tampa Solar a reputation for quality. We uphold this commitment to quality in all aspects of the business, from the office to the field, from large installs to small repairs, ensuring customer satisfaction from the first phone call to the final inspection.
