Quick and easy installation

Adapt Energy was quick to respond with a great quote taking into consideration our unique situation. Installation was done within a week and handover was informative. All in all a pleasant experience and we're very happy with the outcome - all at a comfortable price.

Great from start to finish

Tyson was just fantastic in the very beginning and the months to follow before my actual install, the instal team very top notch professionals big team turned up to finish in 1 day (all bar one broken panel), Adept sent them out to install the final panel a week after install even though it was a 4 hour return journey for them. The system looks great and performs well considering its winter, I’m sure come the warmer month and longer days my Tesla powerwall will easily last the night (on cloudy rainy days at the moment it doesn’t as it can’t get a full charge). It was an expensive system at over $30.000, but all high end components and quality work, you get what you pay for in the end. I highly recommend this company, thank you Solar quotes.

Fantastic system

Very happy with the system that was recommended by adapt energy especially being on the coast. The quoting was handled very well and all items explained in detail. The install was completed on time and to the standard I expect. Got to test the after sales service due to the WIFI disconnecting from the inverter. This was promptly rectified by the operational team at adapt energy.
Overall very satisfied thus far

Must Do Better...

Adept Energy was 1 of 4 installer quotes I got - 2 from Solar Quotes, 1 from a personal recommendation and 1 well-rated local installer. To be fair all 4 were good, but the 2 from Solar Quotes took the time to talk me through the options. and didn't just grab for the money. My wife and I are in a large detached house and have had solar since NSW Labor ran the last solar scheme. They both told us - get a decent size system with no battery - which we were committed to getting. A good FIT and sensible management should see us OK. Adept got the job as the very personable sales rep also advised getting a battery when we want to go EV - which is our goal - and an inverter that could later be unlocked to allow a charger to be connected.

They promised to install within 4 weeks and were as good as their word. The installation was done in a day and the workmen were neat/ tidy and pretty efficient, bracing, wiring and distance of panels from gutter as per Solar Quotes - with only one snag. A dongle or cable was missing which meant we couldn't see the system data on the app.

Post the installation - the wheels began to come off. I regret not withholding payment until the system was 100%.While the front-end of Adept's business is very good - the back end was not so strong. A good week later I had not heard anything about the missing piece and received no warranty or paperwork. I arced up but their operations team were hard to reach, slow to respond. It took a complaint to Solar Quotes to get things moving.

If you buy a $25 clock at Bunnings you get a warrantee in the box and instructions on how to use it and what it does - with Adept you get nothing for $9K. The installer gave me the password and access to the SEMS app he had set up to test our system, which was just as well as Adept gave us nothing. When I asked if they could tell me how the app worked and what it all meant - they said they couldn't help. If this is your first foray - good luck! How long would
it take them to put together a welcome pack using links to Solar Quotes articles on how to best utilise/ maximise your solar system and to add a link to the SEMS app instructions - which I found on-line?

No sooner had they finally got our metering system on-line - so we could see what we're doing on the SEMS app -
for which we received no link or any kind of information on how to read/ operate it - than our air conditioner went on the blink. Couldn’t understand it - normally very reliable. I checked the fusebox and discovered that the air con had been incorrectly wired to the solar hot water switch which is normally off in summer. The Adept electrician told me that the solar hot water was still on its own circuit, which it was on the previous system. Now we couldn't have air con without putting on the water! That's not to say that the solar hot water was even on that circuit and begged the question what was our solar hot water wired to and if it’s the house then have we been paying for water to be heated needlessly for the past 3 weeks? I advised Adept's operations to sort this ASAP as I was seriously concerned about your competency on all levels. They did respond within a day and it turned out it was not wired incorrectly, but the wiring block had slipped down behind the fusebox giving the appearance of it being wired incorrectly.

In a final twist I got an email from my energy supplier saying that a request for a new meter had been received = presumably from the electrician. This would be completed in 16 working days. I assumed that some kind of upgrade was needed, but when heard nothing more I followed up with the retailer to be told we already had one and no upgrade was needed. Finally, exactly a month after the installation it was all done and I could move to a new retailer with a much higher FIT, which would see us break even or better over the hotter months.

To be clear - I'm not saying Adept Energy are shonky - the system I've got is working very well - so far - but they seem to lack an awareness about customer care and don't seem to have a big enough team to handle issues as they arise. They don't seem to understand the value of going with the customer on their solar journey which can last 2- 3 phases.
The old sales mantra used to be don't sell the customer one car - sell him five over his lifetime, which has got lost in this insane neoliberal age of maximum profit/ minimum investment. In their Solar Quotes profile Adept mention "....an unwavering commitment to customer service," but this was curiously absent in my case. As my old school reports used to unfailingly say, "Must do better..."

Great Experience

We were delightedly surprised by the whole process - Adapt was prompt with responding initially, was quick to organise installation once we agreed to go ahead and the company who did the installation were absolutely fantastic- well organised, prompt, very personable and assisted with everything we needed. Adapt has also followed up promptly to make sure we were happy with the outcome- all up VERY impressive- many thanks to you

Top notch service & advice

I was very impressed with Tyson who first contacted me following my request for 3 quotes via the Solar Quotes website. He was really informative and we discussed what our solar needs might be. He gave really sound advice and suggested I delay getting a battery until I know what I was drawing off the grid. He provided 6 quotes - 3 different sizes and 2 different products. The follow up has been fabulous with the panels installed, they contacted my energy provider to get that set-up too.
Was really impressed with the quality of service and advice Adapt Energy provided.
Have already recommended Adapt Energy to friends.

Very satisfied - Highly recommended

Thank you Adapt Energy!

Tyson, our solar consultant, was friendly, answered my questions promptly, followed up and did not mind preparing proposals for different configurations. I am really happy with my final choice of panel, inverter and configuration.

A big thank you to Dylan Wright, CEC-accredited installer, and his team, Harry and Caleb. The team arrived early and discussed the location of the inverter and the process, which was nice. The installation went smoothly. The Energex person who installed the feed-in tariff meter later said that the inverter-meter box installation was the best he had seen. Thank you very much Harry

Thank you everyone.

Top quality system and customer service - no grid power needed and generates even in a severe tropical cyclone!

I spent a lot of time getting detailed system information and quotes before I chose Adapt Energy to install my system. The sales team were focused on my specific needs and gave detailed responses. Adapt Energy's ethical stance regarding the manufacturers' production practices and product portfolios impressed me. The quoting process was easy, with detailed written quotes available for a range of options.
The installation was efficient and very neat. The installation team were respectful and responded to questions about the system and the installation, including the optimal positioning of the panels.
Adapt Energy organised every step, including the grid connection.
The after-sales service has been amazing - prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Without hesitation, I have been given step by step phone instructions about turning the system off and on again when necessary.

Fantastic service and excellent install.

The sales process was excellent. The process occurred during our house move and Inny was understanding and patient whilst we settled in. Solar was the No.1 priority for the new home which is why it occurred during the move. We were expecting an install in the New Year but were surprised when we got a call 3 days after signing the contract that an install day was available the next day. The installers were extremely polite a knowledge and we were up and running in around 6 hours. Considering the guys had to remove the old system before the new one went up the time taken was excellent. We were connected to the inverter app and explained how it worked and it is nice to know we are already generating more than we are using which is always good for the back pocket. Thanks so much guys, everything was so painless.

Fast, efficient and great communication

From start to finish Adapt Energy have been great to deal with. The quotation process was fast and hassle free, staff were knowledgeable and didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need or wasn't a quality product. The install was arranged incredibly fast and minor issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently. I had arranged several quotes from other companies, Adapt Energy were one of the only companies to follow up within a reasonable period in a courteous way. Their local installer did an amazing job, his attention to detail and aesthetics was excellent. I would definitely recommend Adapt Energy.

Quality product with top installation chaps from Chinchilla. No fuss and friendly people. I felt confident with their experience and ability to get the installation done properly with good communication between them and respect. Attended the property as planned on time and were well presented.

11 months later we asked Jo: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

I had a simple installation process with no issues. Soon after though I starting having error code 567 then the system continually shut off, code 102 which meant I was not able to benefit from the energy potentially produced from solar throughout the day. Very upsetting. I was unable to receive support or help and understanding from the installer to find solutions. I was ghosted.

Ergon sent information gathered from my solar readings through to Toowoomba. I now have a system that produces but will have an error code 567 come up most days. At least it doesn't shut down now.

Excellent customer service after the fact

Great operations team at Adapt Energy. My system was installed over 18 months ago but each time I have an issue (getting new wi-fi, getting a new electrical switchboard, got my roof redone so the panels had to come off), I ring the operations team, and I get excellent service. Big thanks for Bronwyn and Kat for their continued service. May I say it's also very nice to get the same staff members more than once, and not have to repeat my story 10 times to different people. I'm happy I went with Adapt.

Easy process, using a fast and comprehesive quoting system. Very quick to respond to questions and make suggestions.

All You Need for a Solar Installation of the Highest Quality

The sales/quoting process was fast and efficient. The sales person knew their product and could answer any questions and guide you down the process road to having Solar at your home. From woe to go with the sales/quoting process, I found it very easy making the choices that I needed to make. This process included the sales/quoting person being able to access your place of residence via google and from there the planning was simple. The next step of installation took no time at all ( only a couple of weeks) and again I found the installer to be professional, friendly, efficient, tidy and well organised. Installation on both of our properties took less than a day. The installer was amazing . The customer service and followup were extremely well co-ordinated and of course they organised the grid connection as well. All in all the people that I dealt with I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone needing Solar. This company is awesome !!

We'd give this team 11 out of ten :)

Today three superb blokes from GC Adapt Energy installed a new high quality solar system. They rolled in with a trailer load (20) of REC panels and a Fronius inverter. Removed the old and dysfunctional 2011 system and the new racks, cables and finally the new panels. At the end, lead man Dylan carefully explained how everything works and then took all the rubbish to the tip. Our property was left neat and tidy. The blokes were a delight have onsite and valued a home made smoko in their one break. We highly recommend Adapt Energy, starting with Steve Wilding investing three hours to help us novices - he's superb; Brownyn in Operations was a delight and the install trio with fabulous. Thank you

Helpful and thorough service

Adapt Energy installed our system over 3 years ago; they were quick and efficient with good follow-up service. When a fault developed on the roof wiring recently they provided great troubleshooting and sent out engineers to help rectify the problem. They helped with remote diagnostics and took care of all warranty replacements for us. We're now fully operational again.

Happy Customer

My journey with Adapt Energy has been amazing from the sales quote to the install and after sales service! I am still a bit confused that my 10kw system doesn’t ever produce at full capacity nor does it hold high capacity for long durations which means that most times I am still on the grid but I suppose it all boils down to the sun! Happy customer in general though!

Very easy and good to deal with overall

Although requested there was no onsite consultation. As a result the installation panel layout differs from initial quotation. Whilst not onsite, Brett's incites and suggestions proved to be valuable in our final decision.
Our installer, Jamie and his crew were prompt, polite and efficient. He was quite informative about the inverter, assisting me to install the monitoring app. P.S. Jamie, we still have your screwdriver.
Smart meter was installed within the 15 business days as arranged by Jamie and Adapt Energy.
Happy with the service , await our first bill.
We would like to thank Finn and the team at Solar Quotes for the information that lead us in the right direction.

Highly recommend Adapt Energy.

Established contact through the Solar Quotes medium and Steve came out (as one of three from Solar Quotes). Steve was professional, prompt and articulate. Steve was very clear is managing our requirements, and detailed our options with in-depth, yet easy to understand information. There was no pressure, just factual information; with clear quotes.

Adapt and Steve took time to understand our requirements, including installation aesthetics, and worked hard to meet our wishes...which they did.

Dylan and the install team arrived when they said they would, were very conscious of any impact on our neighbours, explained every step and completed the install on time, and without a hint of an issue. And...they tidied up extremely well once they had completed the job.

Once everything was done, I was contacted by Bronwyn to ensure everything was done to our satisfaction (which it definitely was) and to ensure we had all of the warranty certificates and other information packs.

It became evident quite early in the process that Adapt were going to be our preferred supplier, and we can safely say that they exceeded all of our expectations.

Thank you to the whole team at Adapt.

The initial quoting experience was without pain. Very knowledgeable young man, who answered all questions in a professional manner

Installation team turned up on time, and commenced work immediately. The supervisor talked me through the system, in a language I could easily understand. Whatever apprehension I may have had, disappeared then.

We've had the system some seven months now, and are very happy. I would thoroughly recommend this company
