About Adapt Energy Pty Ltd, Solar Installers

Adapt Energy Pty Ltd

Adapt Energy Pty Ltd is a SolarQuotes Client (what does this mean?)
ABN: 62 778 983 929  ABN active since 10 Jun 2015 | The Trustee For Adapt Products Unit Trust
ACN: 606 263 398  ACN active since 05 Jun 2015 | Adapt Energy Pty Ltd

The team at Adapt Energy have a passion for renewable energy. With over 10 years industry experience (including a 100kw system for the Loughlin Bros Transport Equipment) and expertise developed working on a wide range of projects over the years. From small scale residential solar systems, to medium size hybrid projects to large scale ground mounted arrays. Our organisation is built on mutual respect between us and our clients, our installers, our suppliers, the local communities we operate in and our natural environment. We have built a reputation in the industry for providing a tailored approach to every customer and finding a solution to their specific needs. Serving all of Queensland and Adelaide, we have a network of suppliers to ensure we can be flexible with the products we use and are not restricted or biased towards one particular brand. Our motivation when suggesting a certain product or system design is to benefit our customers and help them achieve the best outcome, not to increase our profit margins.

Adapt energy fit into a gap in the market where so often we are seeing the wrong thing being done in the solar industry with misleading sales advice, cheap components and poor workmanship it can become very confusing for consumers. Adapt energy only offer products that have stood the test of time and while we have very affordable options for customers looking for shorter term solutions we refuse to compete on the bottom of the market where often customers are left with faulty products and no warranty support despite being promised 30 year warranties. Instead we use proven products with sound financial backing, presence within Australia and often third party insurance for extra peace of mind.

Adapt Energy Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

Outstanding ongoing service

The initial quote and literature was sent promptly. I had some questions and these were addressed so I understood the concepts clearly.
I was kept in the loop regarding the installation date. My neighbour who had made the initial approach to Adapt Energy was also awaiting the installation on the same day. All the installation staff were friendly and informative.
The person who came from Ergon did not let me know when he was coming to switch over to the grid. However everything had been prepared and all I had to do was switch on in my power board.
A problem became obvious when the temperature reached the high 20s and above. The inverter became extremely hot to touch and emitted a moderately loud buzzing noise. Katie Marino, in the Adapt Energy office on the Gold Coast, made herself responsible for resolving this issue, which proved quite a challenge, dealing with fault notices in Chinese and communicating with technicians in China in the company Sungrow. After a considerable amount of communication Katie achieved an acknowledgement that the inverter was faulty and would be replaced under warranty. Katie then located a technician to replace the inverter at my home as the original installer, Robear, was booked up with other jobs. I deeply appreciate the ongoing efforts made on my behalf by Katie Marino, with a successful and satisfactory conclusion. Many many thanks Katie.

Very professional company

Adapt Energy provided very professional quotations and were prompt replying to any questions. Their installers were very efficient and ensured that the whole job was done in a professional manner. It has been a pleasure to deal with a company that cares about customer service. Show additional information

A good experience all round.

Good price, good explanation of products and tailored a solution to meet what I wanted. I work with people who know a lot about solar so was asking questions to Adapt and they took the time to answer questions my colleagues we telling me to ask. Instillation went well - can’t comment on products yet as it’s only been on a couple of days (and it’s been raining since!) but all seems good so far. Show additional information

Great system and no hassle installation

The sales team were very engaging and answered all queries promptly and ensured we were comfortable with the product. Installers arrived on time and were very efficient given they had to uninstall our old system and the size of the system they installed. Very polite and worked around our needs. The yard was left spotless!
Adapt rang the following day to ensure we were completely satisfied with the installation.
We had to buy a WIFI extender as the signal was not strong enough to enable connect to our WIFI network. Yet to connect but don't perceive any problems doing so myself.
Installed January 2020.

Great service from Initial quote to final instillation on quality products Show additional information

Installed earlier than expected

Initially thought sales person was a bit 'pushy', but was knowledgeable and got us a good price.
They were able to get system installed pre-Christmas but still waiting for Ergon to connect us, so can't comment on quality of system as yet (e.g. on power produced).
Installers were efficient and tidy, working on a very hot day.

Great customer service and communication

Good communication from helpful staff from quote to installation. Installers were polite and very pleasant and left everything tidy. Show additional information

Very happy so far

The provision of the quote was hassle free and sales person was friendly and informative. We went back and forth a few times and each time Owain was able to assist with my questions. Install happened very quickly after quote accepted and everything went to plan. Installers were a bit rushed at the end but all went well. Currently producing an average of 40 kWh per day and our power bill is going to be negligible. Would I recommend this company? Yes and I have done to anyone thinking of going solar.

Great advice and great installation.

Listened to all my questions and have very good sound advice without being pushy. Have me time to process and consider my options. Since installing I’ve reduced my electricity bill massively. Show additional information

Happy customer from Townsville

I waited 2 months after installation to make an informed comment on Adapt Energy's installation. While they do not have a presence in our area they provided sensible answers to all my questions, on the phone and listened carefully for details of the situation before coming up with solutions.
I like detail and logical answers. They provided both and kept in touch during all the stages prior to installation. I can recommend Adapt Energy with confidence.

Very happy, highly recommend

The salesperson Owain was very polite and knowledgeable, and got back to me quickly with answers and quotes. He gave me the option of a few products and negotiated a fair price. The installation was done quickly and professionally.
I had a great experience from the quoting phase through to admin and install. I’m very happy with the system.

Great to deal with.

Communication was great with Adapt. Roger the salesperson explained everything clearly in laymen’s terms. Follow up from the company was also good from Katie & the owner & the install guys from Arnelec went very well. Happy to recommend Adapt. System installed just waiting on the meter upgrade so we can switch it on. Show additional information

Lack of follow through was disappointing.

Quoting process was good. They originally quoted on a Fronius inverter with Risen panels. I asked them to require with better quality panels and they did giving me a few options. I chose one of those and signed off on the new quote. When I received the deposit invoice it was based on the original quote. I notified them and they acknowledged that they had gotten it wrong and amended the invoice. When the installers arrived they had the Risen panel from the original quote. Lucky I was home when they arrived. They did their best to get the correct panels here on that day but it didn't happen. They did everything else but had to return the next week to finish the job. The guys doing the installation were very good. Arrived just after 7am even though they traveled over 2.5 hours to get here.
They did organize grid connection which happened 2 weeks later.

Excellent Job all round

They would have to be the best solar company going around excellent service and communication the installation team where very professional very happy Thanks Adapt Energy Gold Coast and Finn Peacock the system size is 17.08 kw Show additional information
Adapt were easy and honest to deal with. They quickly fixed a number of small issues and were prompt at following up. The system works well and we're happy to recommend Adapt. Show additional information

Very pleased with the system...

The whole process was very easy, the company met my budget, although they were unable to supply the panels they quoted for, ended up with a smaller system that is not generating the full 5kw, with only $100 off the quote. The installation guys were excellent did an awesome job. They organised the install of the smart meter etc. very happy with the end result. Show additional information

Great installation but very poor expertise by sales person

The sales persons seemed knowledgeable and we received a quote for a 16 panel system which I queried and had them confirm in writing and assured us that there measurement system was conservative as another installer had told us that our roof space was not large enough for 16. When the installers arrived they informed us that they could only fit 13 panels on the roof. We decided to go ahead with the reduced system for a slightly lower price as the installers were confident in their assessment of the roof space and we were a bit over it by then.
They assisted with the grid connection. System is working OK but quite disappointed with the lack of competence of the sales person as we had to make an on the spot decision on an alternate size system on the day of installation

Still waiting for an installation date. We are experiencing weather of biblical proportions (not an exaggeration) Show additional information

Great Customer Service & Value For Money

From the initial quote, to the final installation, Adapt had great customer service. Answering my numerous questions was no hassle & ultimately offering a very competitive price for quality components. Very happy with the installation. Show additional information

Return customer

Simple and easy process. Originally installed my first system then decided to have them install another one on my rental property. Fast and efficient turn around. No issues with either installer and both very helpful explaining the setups. I now have 2 fronious inverters so can monitor both via the solar Web app or online remotely at any time, which is handy to plan the best use of free power during the day and what I consume at night. Recommend Q peak Duo 2 or Canadian solar panels with the fronious inverters. Have been referring friends and colleagues to upgrade to solar and use Adapt Energy to get it done well.

Affordable and hassle free

Getting solar panels was so easy and no stress involved. They took care of everything including finance and grid connection. Polite, punctual and professional all the way. Show additional information

Did the thing. Nothing wrong so far.

Quote was fair and honest, installation was smooth, grid link followed with little effort. Show additional information
Thank you Finn,

I/we had the system installed yesterday. It's been working for about 21 hours and we are extremely happy with the installation.

The service from Adapt Energy was excellent. The salesman knew his stuff. He was not pushy. Once I had made the decision I was passed onto a second person who arranged the installation. I was given a date about three weeks prior to installation and it went exactly as planned. The installers were proficient and professional.

Having had some experience with the building industry, sales people and suppliers for all the various building materials used in construction, plus all trades and services. I would rate this team to be as good as any I have dealt with.

Thanks again for your work, Finn it has been most helpful to us. (eg rating panels and inverters etc.)

Kind Regards, Steve

Extremely helpful. Went over and above to explain things I wouldn't have thought to ask as well as finding information we needed for a rural property. Middle price range of all our quotes.

Excellent service & price

I found the entire process from getting a quote to grid connection very easy and efficient. Was contacted by sales person the morning after I submitted my enquiry through Solar Quotes, and received quote that afternoon. Excellent communication from start to finish.

I found the whole Solar Quotes process great value & of great assistance. I made good use of your sources of information & explanations.
The only thing for me to now judge is reliability of components & customer service from Adapt Energy if ever required.
Great job Solar Quotes & I will be singing your praises to anybody who I talk about solar too.

I found adapt energy very good service & no pressure sales person. Show additional information
Firstly, thank you for your website. It is excellent and covers both a layman approach and a more technical one, if wanted. Particularly, liked Solar 101 as a start point. We installed a 6.4kw system with REC Twin Peaks 2 panels and a 5kw Fronius invertor for under $7,000 (east-west facing, only option).

Adapt were very keen for our business and provided a good price and service with the installation team, very good (friendly and professional). The updated meter should be installed in the next few weeks and then we will have a better idea of performance.

If you remind me I am happy to provide follow up feedback in 6 & 12 months on the system.

Once again thank you.

35 Canadian Solar Split panels so about 11.5kw. 2x Fronius Prismos. I thought it was a good compromise on price and quality. Run my own business from home with a family of 5 we average 50kwh a day. Couldn't be happier so far watching the meter go backwards while I have machines running. Show additional information
