Central Coast Energy Solar Reviews

Excellent Professional Local Company

Thanks to Leigh and his team. From Phil who was very informative and patient explaining in detail in a way that was easy to understand.
On installation day Steve and his boys again very professional, informative and tidy. Steve explained the process again to us. Thank you.
We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Central Coast Energy to anyone. We did have quotes from online suppliers and yes they were cheaper but at the end of the day we chose to go local as if we have an issue we know they are not far away.
We are definitely looking forward to lower bills and it so interesting seeing it working with the smart meter and app.

Thanks again Leigh, Phil, Steve & team.

Seamless installer

Quote process very straightforward. Very competitive price, much better than the door to door bunch we began with. Brilliant on time installation. They did everything including organising the new meter and were very responsive to questions, no call waiting issues. We made a mistake turning the system on but all sorted within 15 minutes. We would highly recommend this company. Show additional information

Great solar installation experience

Could not be happier with our solar system installation by Central Coast Energy. Leigh and his team were friendly and professional from start to finish - turned up on time and left our property spotless after the installation. Leigh engenders high confidence in the work performed and ongoing service. Happy to recommend without reservation. Show additional information

Genuine, local guy. Can't go wrong.

Leigh was recommended to us by a previous customer of his. After being sweet talked by a salesperson who, over 3 hours, promised the world for a significant price, we signed and then second guessed our commitment to the system on offer. Leigh's straightforward approach was a breath of fresh air and his quote was very fair when compared with similar sized systems, of which we invited a quote from the previous salesperson with none forthcoming.

He organised everything for us and solved a hiccup that resulted from a mutual misunderstanding efficiently and effectively, despite putting his own timeline back a couple of days.

Leigh contacted our supplier for a meter upgrade and organised the grid connection for us. We haven't had to worry about a thing. He followed up the installation with details on how to monitor the system online and rang the following day to check on the job. Being new to the world of solar, I am enjoying observing the data I can view, but the real test will be in the next power bill or two, which I am looking forward to analysing, hence the 'not applicable' for quality of system as I don't really know.

Upgrade of Panels and Battery

I was very happy from start to finsh with the service of Leigh and staff, Their quote was mid range, and Leigh was Honest when answering question, after 3 months we are just about off the Grid, paying only about $15.00 per month instead of $300.00-$400'00 per month in a bill.

AAA+ solar installation highly recommend

Professional service from the sales to the installation and the after service they are a pleasure to deal with and would highly recommend them to anyone looking at getting solar Show additional information

Communication is key

After 4 solid quotes I decided on Leigh and boys. A local company with a great reputation and years of experience. I was leaning towards a more well known company for the fact they’ve been around longer but couldn’t go past the customer service, price, assurances and over all quality. After much research they listened to my wants and gave me a system to suit my family and my roof. They take every into consideration. I knew the installer that came and felt reassured that the job would be done to the best quality.

They were quick, tidy and easy to deal with.
After sales and installation service has been great.

Professional, friendly and helpful advice without a heavy sales pitch. Would recommend contacting Central Coast Energy to provide your solar power solution. Show additional information
Leigh and the guys at Central Coast Energy were fantastic. Installation was done within 3 weeks of paying the deposit.
Slight issue with the change over in the meter box. Leigh turned up on the doorstep the next morning to fix it (I had not even contacted Leigh), he was here no longer than 20 minutes and then advised he would email Origin Energy to come back and finish the meter change over.
Absolutely stellar customer service. I would highly recommend Leigh and Central Coast Energy!

Very good company. Would recommend to others Show additional information
I purchased a 6.1 Kw solar power system from Central Coast Energy which included the installation of the system at Garden Suburb in Lake Macquarie. From the initial contact with their office through to the installation of the system it was absolutely hassle free. The installers turned up on time and were very very professional in all aspects of the installation, when they finished they cleaned up and took all the rubbish with them. Highly recommended. Show additional information
From start to finish this was a seamless install. Leigh and his team really know their products and pricing. From the best quote of 6 quotes to the best customer service to best install - so tidy.
I have seen other installations that are very messy and output has been less than the desired kw output. Very happy customers.

The owner of the business, Leigh McInerney, was easy to talk to but not pushy, and he has followed up with us on multiple occasion since installation and fixed any minor problems so we are getting. The most out of our system. We couldn’t be happier with the product and the service.
A separate local solar business in the area was the opposite and that’s why we didn’t go with them. He was pushy and rude. That’s never going to win you new business.

Quick and professional, took care to not damage guttering and replace damaged tiles. Installers were very “user friendly”.
Also the included emberpulse dashboard and its cloud based record for my useage and generation is a great tool.

The installer was fantastic from the day I first contacted him. The quote was supplied quickly and my questions were answered in a professional manner. The installation was carried out quickly and all necessary paperwork supplied Operation of the equipment was fully explained including the monitoring software. Overall a very pleasant experience Show additional information
From the first contact to the instillation and after service I found Leigh to be one of the best trades I have dealt with in years. He returned all me calls promptly and was very helpfull in my decision making. I don’t usually do reviews as any negatives are often taken out of context but I have to say I have no negatives with this Company so feel I am more than happy to recommend them.

There is nothing better than a tradesman turning up when they said they would. Great service, good products overall and great experience. Show additional information
Leigh was very helpful with all the information he provided us. We had a few quotes from other companies but decided to go with Central Coast Energy due to Leigh's honesty and product knowledge. It was a efficient install and the team seemed great. The system seems to be going well so far. We would definitely recommend this company. Show additional information
Ask me about all those a year from now. All seems to be OK now. Show additional information
Really happy with Leigh and Central Coast Energy. Only 4 stars for value for money, not due to Central Coast Energy, but it comes from paying a premium for the higher end equipment that will last (went with a Fronius/LG 6.7KW panel setup). The system has only been in a week, but has pumped out 45KWh+ on good days. Show additional information
Leigh from Central Coast Energy was fantastic. He recommended a system that suited our needs and the installation went very soothly. The system is producing great results. Show additional information

Leigh and his team were very professional, offered good advice prior to installation, turned up on time and cleaned everything up before they left. Leigh also followed up post install to make sure I was happy with the job and had any other questions. System is performing well so far. Show additional information
Very happy we went with Leigh. Everything was installed within a couple of weeks from giving the go ahead. We have a less than desirable did due to shading but Leigh was willing to look at different scenarios for optimal positioning. I've been very happy with the system's performance so far - generating more than I was expecting. Show additional information

Thank you to Leigh, Jay and the team at Central Coast Energy. Not knowing much about solar we are incredibly happy with the decisions to go with Leigh and his team, they made the process so easy and Leigh was always happy to answer all my question and explain everything in detail and in a way that we could understand.
Installation we great Jay and the team did a great job on the day. We were very happy with brand of panels and inverter.

Big thanks again.

Leigh answers all questions, does not come across as a sales staff after your money. He is the expert and he also does the installation.
So he has to do an excellent installation.
This is different to big companies who sell the system, but the installer could be a contractor.
If the person installing the solar system does not have much interest in growing the busines, the reputation of business etc, then I wonder how motivated will he be to do an excellent installation.
So far I am very glad I chose Central Coast Energy for the solar installation.
