About the Project

Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch participates in various conservation programs and over half the species at the ranch have some level of endangerment. Given their conservation efforts, adding solar energy to their property fit their mission. With power costs rising, they felt solar energy was a good strategy for them as well. They had seen a lot of different solar projects around San Antonio and made the connection they were projects done by Big Sun Solar. Once they did decide to go solar, they wanted to do solar carports to provide that amenity to their customers especially during their busiest season in the summer when it’s the hottest in Texas.

Once we got past the design phase, comes the construction. We were nervous about the timing of construction but Big Sun Solar was amazing. Every day, the progress and how fast the structure went up was unbelievable. They were very timely and everything done just in time for spring break.
