Robert Biviano is the owner of this business which has been based in Orange for well over 20 years. Has a very good reputation and was recommended to me by a very particular friend of mine who has solar panels at his residence.

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

No a bit less than advised it would from the designer and installer, and the cost of it was up to 3 times others I have seen.

In rural area, you need to know if your transformer will accept power input back to the grid, it may trip out your solar system.

Second issue is; are the power lines to the house large enough to be able to take the power back to the grid, without blowing your house systems.

These are very important issues that Central West Solar management raised when completing an on site inspection. No other company was aware of these problems.

In other words, it appears that local knowledge may be better.

At the moment I am making inquiries about up grading my power lines, they are very old and not large enough to handle the 10kw system. Once I have upgraded my lines and installed my system I may be able to give a better response.
