247 energy great company/champions

Got victor out to get quotes ,nothing was a bother for him, got a swag of different quotes from 5other companies, decided on victor from 247energy as he made the whole process easy and was very informative giving us different options on 6.6 to 12kw systems .we got a 10kw system and the whole process in installation was a pleasure.no dramas .I have already given his number to a family member who is going to get solar as well.i would not hesitate to recommend 247energy top blokes. .i don’t normally write reviews but I think I have to in this case (forgot to mention that his quotes came in cheeper than competitors on the same systems) cheers Show additional information

Victor from 247 gave us a range of options with a great deal of additional information, including installation procedures and materials, allowing us to make a more informed decision. The other offers probably would have been just as good but they gave no indication on this aspect. Victor's telephone manner was great and his "pitch" about being an independant supplier was convincing.

The other two offers were simply a range of options without much more, or indeed any, additional information. The only "backup info" was a page essentially saying, "here's the price, now sign the order". Not a good approach!

Great value & Expertise of installer

Victor explained the install in easy to understand language. He showed us examples of the equipment/hardware they use. After the quote was provided there was no pressure from him, follow up phone calls or pushy sales tactics.
Connection to the grid all done hassle free.

Great service

247E was prompt and very professional with their visit and quote. Their installation was completed on the arranged day by competent and likeable tradesmen. The company organised all paperwork and arrangements with Ergon Energy who then installed a new meter for our grid connection. Show additional information

Fantastic company

installation went smoothly punctual neat tidy very nice guys and honest Show additional information

Great service from start to finish.

On first contact we explained we would be moving into our house within three weeks and would Be in touch for a quote. We received a quote with lots of options and an explanation of how different systems worked. There was even a plan of the panels from google view. The installers were fantastic and worked in with other trades on site. They were very polite and tidy. Victor explained how the system worked after installation and contacted the energy company to arrange our new meter.
We would recommend this company without hesitation.

Victor at 247 energy was great. He reviewed our needs and recommended a system suited to our useage and budget. We have been very happy with follow up as I had some questions and Victor was more than happy to assist even though he had well and truly finished the job and was already paid (as it was several weeks later).
He not only beat the competition for the same system by about $400 cheaper but he was also able to install the system within a week and a half of us deciding to go ahead, so we had solar before x-mass, when the competition was saying not till after christmas.
Victor provided exceptional service and was happy to answer all our questions and to explain in terms I could follow and understand the differences in panels and converters and batteries as well, as we are hoping to get batteries down the track. His information could all be verified on line and here on this site as well which made trusting him so much easier, He really knew his stuff. would recommend him to every one in Hervey Bay/maryborough/Fraser coast or sunshine coast.

Thank you for putting trusted people forward. All were very good, but I like to deal with local guys if they are up to par, and Victor and his team were. You can publish my review, but please do not publish my name, just initials. I'll mark no below, so it is clear I don't want my name used. But you can pass my views on to Victor.

Victor did well in satisfying my main requirement which was to get the most KW as possible on our limited roof space. I am very happy with the quality of the system and the installation. I haven't had any post installation contact with him though. A follow up would normally be part of a good customer service schedule. Show additional information
Why I chose 24.7energy was because Victor was the first person who went into my shed & took a reading of my switchboard with a special instrument (don’t know the name) to check my power. No other company did this also Victor lives locally and I felt comfortable in his knowledge of the system. Show additional information
No problems with 24/7 at all. Great job on installation, weather was the hold back.
Our problem is ERGON energy. What a bunch of thieves. Solar was installed 3 weeks ago and they are not coming around to install new smart meter for another 1-3 weeks. Not only that, there is a $575 charge to install new meter. Thieving con artists.

Still work outstanding after 4 weeks.

Our very best regards and thanks.
