Solar Water Heaters

Our solar water heaters offer the convenience of traditional water heaters, but without the additional costs, emissions, and hassles. It works in three simple steps:

1) Water in the storage tank is pumped through a series of valves to your solar collector.

2) As the water rises through the solar collector, it is heated by the sun's thermal energy.

3) The heated water is then returned back to the tank, where it is stored until used.

Solar water heaters are our specialty. They are our namesake and our flagship. Nothing feels better than using free, clean, and efficient solar hot water. Think about all the things you use hot water for every day — showers, dishes, clothes, hot baths, and much more. Imagine how much you would save on your energy costs each month if hot water were free. That's what solar hot water does for you — it provides your home and family with FREE hot water!

The average home electric water heater reflects 30% (or more in some cases) of your monthly electric bill. Think of what you could do by saving up to 95% of this 30% when choosing to install a solar hot water system!

Harnessing energy from the sun is a common-sense approach. Consumers are currently using more than 50 trillion kilowatt hours of power every year to heat their water. The sun can produce that amount of power in just one hour a day. You can put that kind of energy to work for your home with a reliable solar hot water system from us. All you have to do is sit back, relax, use hot water as much as you need — and see the savings month after month, year after year.

We offer a variety of solar hot water applications that are fit for families of up to 12. Our systems are designed and configured for every type of roof. With many layouts and sizes to choose from, we can provide your home with the most advanced, efficient, and state-of-the-art system available. A professional solar consultant will discuss all your possible options at the time of the estimate.

Worried about not having hot water on less sunny days? Every one of our solar hot water units comes with a built-in single electric element in the solar storage tank. This is only used if there are multiple cloudy days. It's designed to consume far less energy that a conventional hot water tank with 2 elements. It gives you the comfort of hot water even when it's overcast outside.

Solar hot water will also increase the real estate value of your home. However, there are a few guidelines and questions that we'll provide to you to make sure that it's to your best benefit. Remember, if it doesn't work for you, it won't work for us.

Great company with good facilities. Would recommend this to anyone in the entire states tired of paying electrical bills. They will save you the stress.

Solar Pool Heating

Solar water heaters safely and inexpensively heat your pool to a temperature comfortable for swimming. It works even during the spring and fall. Once a solar pool heating system is installed, there is no extra cost to operate it. It uses the existing pool pump to drive the pool water through the solar panels. This process warms the water before it is discharged back into the pool.

A typical unheated swimming pool in central Florida is only warm enough to be enjoyable for about 120 days of the year. That means most pool owners will only be able to swim for a third of the year

A properly sized and professionally installed Heliocol solar pool heating system will give you nearly year-round enjoyment. It will also help you get more out of your swimming pool investment. In many cases, it has been proved that a swimming pool could be solar heated for less than 10% of what it cost to build the pool. Heat your pool and you can enjoy it 80% more.

Our Heliocol solar pool collectors are built with the best and finest materials available in today’s solar industry. Made by Magen Eco Energy, a worldwide recognized leader in the plastics industry, these collectors are made to last in excess of 20 years. This is twice as long as any recognized competitors' brand. As if the durability wasn't enough, Heliocol is the only solar collector that offers a FULL 12 year warranty.

The warranty not only covers the collectors, but also all the mounting attachments down to the clips and gaskets. It also covers all the labor and handling for the full 12 years. No one else offers this. The reliability of the Heliocol brand helps us offer the best peace of mind to our clients.

Our installation process is flawless. We don't leave any details behind. From the moment we give an estimate to the last solar piece installed on the roof, we maintain clear and open communication. This way, there are no surprises. This is the least we can do for our customers. They put their confidence in our work.

Our installation department will provide the most knowledgeable and professional work possible. They are also able to answer any questions while they do the work. They will be respectful, clean, and organized at all times. On each project we keep the job site neat and are conscious of your property.

At the end of each job, every system is fully tested to mimic the most extreme conditions to make sure there are no issues. We make sure that when we leave a job, our systems are more than likely to be trouble-free — for a very long time.

Many thanks to Bert and the crew for a seamless solar pool panel install. I shopped for a reputable pool company for many months to have a solar system installed. After what I thought was an endless search for an honest company I finally through a referral of a neighbor I met Bert of Nature Coast Solar. We met he was very knowledgeable of his product, patient to my questions, and no high pressure sales tactics. They installed a week earlier then promised, were professional on the site, thoroughly explained the system — and most importantly, it works. Thank you!

home solar electricity installation

Home Solar Electricity

Home solar energy systems work through solar panels mounted on your roof that generate direct current electricity (DC). The DC electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts the DC into alternating current (AC). This is the type of electricity required for household use. The AC power is then delivered directly to your home's main electrical service panel for use by you and your family. Contact us using the buttons below to schedule a free, no pressure in-home estimate today!

Phone calls returned promptly. Understood the problem with little explanation and gave a clear understanding of what it was or could be, and what needed to be done. Answered my questions thoroughly. Considering it was Christmas time and they were very busy, was willing to make a side trip to take a look at system. That's going above and beyond.

Why Florida Trusts Nature Coast Solar — Our History

The company founder, Earl Elwinger, had been working for Solar Water Heaters of New Port Richey in Florida for a number of years. Earl 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 got his chance in 1979. Factory owner Mr. Ramsey asked him to open his own company, promising to provide him with all the necessary materials.

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. They 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. Everyone looked at it in awe.

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. Our product of choice? Heliocol solar collectors. 

Although we have evolved so much over the last 38 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 and local people that truly believe in solar.
