AC Electrical - Bundaberg/Fraser Coast/Gladstone Solar Solar Reviews

We follow up with all reviewers after 12 months to see how their system is going since it was installed. These are all the reviewers who have responded to our 1 year follow up:
The workers were very helpful did the work quickly and cleaned up.
Still waiting for the energy company to change other the meter to see how well the panels work and how much money they will save us

We chose this supplier as they could install the system earlier than the other comparable quote. Everything from the first visit by the sales person to the final installation went smoothly. We are very happy with our choice. Show additional information

Both Bundaberg Solar and Solarhart - who we got to quote - were approved supplier for Qld govt loan. This is why we contacted them. Solarhart had their own finance which they promoted and did not go into Qld govt loan options. Bundaberg solar only had Qld govt loan. both no interest but 4 years @ 250ish per quarter Solarhart vs 53 month for 84 months Qld govt. Bundaberg Solar also $1000 less. system panel and inverters similar standard. Went with Fronius and SunPower.
Both Salesman were knowledgeable and pleasant and good representatives of their organisations.

great communication, and even started the install earlier than planned. Show additional information
Excellent service during the whole process, from Geoff coming out to give us a quote through to the installers doing an excellent job. Thank you all. Show additional information
Geoff has been amazing to deal with from the initial quote right through to installation. He took the time to make sure we got the right system for our family and took the time to explain the process and how we could best utilise the system to save money. His installation team were a pleasure to have at our home, polite, on time and also took the time to explain the unit. They are also one of the only tradesman we have had at our home this year who cleaned up after themselves.
I will be recommending AC Electrical to all of my clients, family and friends.
Thank you

bad weather set us back but finally got it installed. Show additional information
Geoff was good and informative and the tradesmen were very good and efficient and went about there job in a good manner, however I thought when they left and the installation was finalised I thought we would be sending back to the grid straight away but NO we have to wait for ergon to do their stuff and boy what a wait that is(very disappointing) as were not told we had to wait that long ( 3 weeks so far) So the 3 weeks we have been waiting, where is the solar power going??? I wonder ??? ergon maybe gaining the benefits??? and not passing on to customers. If we had known this we may have taken a different option.

Very Happy with the service, installation and the end product. Geoff and his team were able to answer all by questions. showed up on time to do the work and there were no nasty surprises at all during the process. Show additional information
Our solar was installed on 2/11/18 and we are still waiting for Ergon to complete the installation - so I can't say whether our solar is working efficiently or not.
Our salesperson - Geoff was very friendly and amenable and he spoke to us in language that we could understand. We did however have to wait an extended period for our installation of air-conditioning and solar (initially ordered on 6/9/18) - due to solar panels being delayed from overseas. Overall we are pleased that we chose this company.

The system has only been installed for 24 hrs so I can't really comment about the system functionality yet..
What I can say I'd that right from the start the salesman (Geoff) was excellent. Then the installation process was carried out very efficiently by a young crew who were on time, courteous and extremely helpful. They were very professional and explained everything I needed to know about my new system, and more. Couldnt ask for better service.The end product looks good and I have no doubt it will perform as advertised..I have no hesitation in recommending Bundaberg Solar to anyone thinking about installing Solar power.

Used Solar Quote.
First to reply, very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to answer all questions.

The installation was done in a different configuration to what was stated on the original quote. This was done without consulting me. I only found out when i asked the installers how things were going. Later when I saw how the roof panels were being located I expressed a concern about the possibility was rain water sliding past the rain gutter onto the ground. I stated that I have trouble with the yard becoming waterlogged and water entering the small shed in the yard. The installers were dismissive of this. After some more questions they said that they would put the panels as far up the roof as possible. These installers then left and the panels were put in place by another team the following day. I thought that they were still to close to the rain water gutter. Before they left we did test the rain water run off with a hose and it did not seem to be to bad. Since then we have had heavy rain and there has been water in the small shed. It is impossible to say if the configuration of the roof panels made any contribution to this, but I would still have been happier if they had been put in as per the original quote. I also believe that I should have been consulted before the change was made not afterwards and more consideration should have been given to my concerns.

Supplier Reply

Hi Charles, thank you for your feedback. We fully understand your concerns and express our apologies for the lack of communication in regards to the change of layout of panels. This should have been discussed prior to work commencing and it is unacceptable on our behalf to not have this conversation with you. As discussed on the phone earlier we have arranged to return to your home and place the panels as per original design. I hope this will rectify any concerns you may have had. We hope we can continue a strong relationship and be there for you if any after sales service is ever needed in the future.�

Kind Regards
Geoff

Bundaberg Solar were very professional and helpful while evaluating my premises, helping me along with all the technical stuff, explaining how it all works. Although they weren't the cheapest quote, the way the process went was the most professional.
The installation went smoothly and was finished when they said it would be. The installers were professional, neat with their work and cleaned up after they were done.
I highly recommend Bundaberg Solar for any of your solar/energy needs.

Geoff was very easy to deal with. He explained everything in detail and gave me a fair quote for what I wanted done. When I showed him a cheaper quote for pretty much the same system, he got back to me. Although he didn't quite match the quote, his willingness to go to the trouble to try and match it and give me a great system was pretty much the decider on who I went with, that and his company was local.
The men who came out and did the installation did a terrific job, and had it done in the time frame they said. So far it's working well and I am glad I went with them.
High marks to all who were involved.

Geoff from Bundaberg Solar has left no stone unturned to meet my rather picky requirements. I requested the SunPower 360W x 18 panels with the Fronius International 5kW inverter plus the Fronius digital meter. In addition, I required a satellite dish and ornamental owl to be moved / removed. I am very impressed by his service and that he was never a pushy sales person. Show additional information

Good company to deal with Show additional information
They are a really good company to deal with, explained everything from quote to installation and were here to instal when promised. They have been very professional with follow up and with any questions asked. Highly recommended! Show additional information
I found all 3 recommendations excellent in their response and follow up. One had the micro inverter system which I was very keen on but felt the extra cost was outside our budget. Another and AC Electrical were very close in their quality of panels and inverter and even though AC Electrical were marginally dearer in their quote, their salesperson came out to our home to quote whereas Solargain quoted by phone and internet. Also AC were local at Bundaberg which could mean a lot if ever service is required.
Thankyou Finn for your great website.

AC Electrical gave us fantastic service and always promptly returned calls. They were happy to answer any questions and followed up even after the installation. While the price was a little more than we initially wanted to pay, the quality of the product and the service we received, we felt was worth the extra investment. We would definitely recommend them.
