A truly professional service.

I went to Lisa and Martin with an idea for power independence. Circuit Alert were fantastic. The system I hoped for works exactly as I'd hoped and I'm already looking to expand on the original installation. Thanks Circuit Alert. Martin and Lisa were able to explain clearly what options were available and what the thought would be the most suitable and value for money.

The site was challenging with connection between building required. The installation and grid connection went ahead without a hitch. If I had any questions or had to pass on information Martin and Lisa were only a txt/email/phone call/Whatsapp away.

Great service.

Cannot recommend enough.

Lisa and the team were incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and always available to answer our questions. The solar install was quick and tidy. Would absolutely recommend these guys.

Great friendly service

From start to finish we felt looked after. I contacted Circuit Alert months before going ahead with a quote and Lisa gave me lots to think about but with no hard sell. Circuit Alert had been recommended to me by my niece who had already used the company twice already for installing her solar. We went with their cheapest option which I was a little sceptical as to how good a cheaper system would be. Circuit Alert assured me that they have installed plenty of the cheaper systems and that they all come with very similar warranties. We have not looked back. The installers arrived on time , kept us well informed .Walked us through the set up. The Solax system has not missed a beat. Lisa drops us a line now and then to check everything is as we would expect it to be.

Replacement system

Painless experience from my first contact with the company to the final installation. The installers were punctual, efficient and left the area spotless. Loved that they setup the app on my phone as this would have been a challenge for me.

Some simple steps toward Green energy

Fair to say, sales and quoting was a good experience and the salesperson Chris was excellent

Installation went generally well, but some traffic damage to roof and damage to skylight dome. I am required to arrange the repair/replacement of the dome and present an invoice for reimbursement

The next steps toward grid connection was a matter of tracking down the info myself, somewhat of minefield for the those not skilled in this path. Still no clarity.

They do what they say!

From the first phone call when speaking to Lisa, through the quoting process and then on to the installation it was a well oiled machine. They turned up when they said, did what they said and the system acheived what they said! I'm so relieved to no great service still exists!

Great company to deal with

We are very happy to have chosen Circuit Alert to do our solar install, from the initial contact with Lisa they were no pressure to “do it now” like other company and unlike other they came to our home to look and sit down and explain the whole process , all this without any commitment from
us at this stage. Once we gave them the “go ahead” it was a very smooth operation, the young men who came to do the install where great, friendly, polite and very efficient . Our system works as intended and so far no issue. Would recommend the team at Circuit Alert to anyone

Another job well done!

Another awesome job from Richard, Lisa and team.
Very easy to deal with & once we accepted the quote it didn't take long to have our solar up and running.
Evan over Christmas holiday period Lisa was able to help us troubleshoot an issue with our hot water unit which was not related to the solar.

The best design for my specific roof, best advice and the best price

Douglas and his team have been very patient in answering all my questions, and really came up with the best design for my roof. Our roof is south facing, with significant shading, and they came up with realistic estimates of the production, and just the right amount of panels to provide maximum production while minimizing shading issues.
Installation went smoothly. The installer was also the system designer and he was very nice and competent.

I am very likely going back to them for my upcoming battery install!

Highly recommend Circuit Alert Electrical and Solar.

Really happy to deal with a family operated business. Communication was always prompt and answered all my silly questions. The install team arrived on time, worked hard all day and cleaned up before they left.

The office has been great with following up to make sure everything is going well and we are happy.

Terrific Company for Solar

These guys were brilliant… Lisa in the office took time to explain things, nothing was an effort to her. Cameron sent detailed quotes for different systems and was happy to explain pros and cons of the types and sizes of the systems available. Steve and Lachie were absolutely fantastic with the install… extremely nice guys, neat, tidy and knew their stuff! The whole process was seamless and I would highly recommend this team if you are wanting hassle free Solar installation with the peace of mind that they are there to support you if any questions or problems arise in the future. I am an extremely happy customer!

Great install completed on the day. Good handover for the system and the monitoring app

Appreciated the on-site visit and personal contact to understand our requirements, explain the panel and inverter options, identify the install location and explain the installation process.

The install was completed on the agreed day by an experienced crew - the old system was removed cleanly. The monitoring system and the app were installed and commissioned before leaving site and all arrangements with the supplier managed by the supplier. The only minor issue was that some of the installation waste (cable ties, packers etc) didn't get removed.

And the system started generating as soon as it was switched on!

Impressive, helpful and understanding staff.

Sales & quoting was much more involved than I was expecting. Everyone provided me with multiple options and layouts which was great.
Installation was efficient. It had to be over 2 days as the wind picked up but a mutually agreeable time was chosen later in the week. The installers were very polite, tidy and punctual, and happy to answer any questions.
Customer service was excellent, they sorted out all the paperwork with Energex, any issues I had and did a follow up.

Great Service

Patient and understanding during the enquiry process no question was a problem for them to give us their time to fully explain.
Installation went very smoothly and they have had to return a couple of times as we are experiencing a slight problem connecting to the SolaX app. This is ongoing at the moment but it isn't compromising the working of the solar system itself, just waiting for some sunshine though to give us a good boost.

Fantastic Installers

The install was done professionally in one day, every thing was left neat & tidy.
Had to wait over 3 weeks to have the new meter installed by the energy company.
All working now.

Fantastic experience from a great team at Circuit Alert.

Trying to find a local company who will actually turn up for a quote nearly made me give up on the search for solar, then I contacted Circuit Alert. They have restored my faith in tradies.
From the initial ph call, Lisa and the team provided exactly what they said they would.
The installers texted to say they'd be there in 30 mins AND they were.
The panels and inverter were installed proficiently and without a trace of rubbish left behind. Thanks guys.
Everything was explained in easy to understand terms and I was told, any questions, just ring us.
I'm very happy with the job from start to finish, can't wait to start saving on my electricity bills.
I would highly recommend Circuit Alert for anyone looking to deal with a reputable solar company.

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

After some issues with the power company incorrectly reading power usage and power output, it would seem that the system is performing as we would expect.

Best Solar Provider in Sunshine Coast

Organising solar panels for my home with Circuit Alert was the easiest and most pleasant experience. Their team are very professional but still have that small town touch of personality and warmth that made the entire process so much more comfortable. Lisa is a fantastic coordinator that is so easily accessible and endlessly helpful. Not to mention their product is also rated No.1 solar panels according to choice independent reviewers.
Could not more highly recommend!

Local installer, friendly, up to date with technology

Phil went with us Trough the design, type, quality and adapted his suggestion with our expectations. The job has been done neatly and they took their time to make sure everything is synchronised with each other. They worked 3 days in comparison to a neighbour’s house that had contractors coming from Newcastle to Central Coast installing a similar size system (14.8kW) in 6 hours. We will see how long that system will last. I am quite confident with our selection which is top of the range 38 x QCell 390W with optimisers and 2 x 5Kw SolarEdge inverters. Unfortunately we are single phased and could not go bigger. We are waiting for the time to get batteries

Completely brilliant, client focussed team.

It is rare that for me to post reviews, but in this instance, I feel I must. The experience I have had, from start to finish, with Circuit Alert, has been completely outstanding and well surpassed any expectations I previously held regarding the mediocrity and customer focussed service that can be lacking in our world. Circuit Alert has been a complete breath of fresh air, restoring my faith in always putting their customer first. Moreover, the expertise of the team is exemplary! I always felt in complete control over what product I should choose. The advice and guidance were clearly based on outstanding industry knowledge. The system I had installed is perfect for us and we are thrilled with the results we are achieving – why didn’t we do this years ago? The installation team was brilliant! Reliable, punctual, courteous, and completely professional. Perhaps the overriding factor for me is Circuit Alert’s proven commitment to looking after their customers post-sale and installation. This is quite remarkable. The care I continue to receive from Circuit Alert, even though my solar system is perfect, is outstanding. Just the little emails I receive to ask if I need help with navigating the solar tariff landscape and providers or just checking in to see how the benefits are working for us. Circuit Alert has completely restored my faith in traditional customer focussed outcomes with a deep sincere passion for us, the client, coming first. I cannot thank them enough!

Perfect seamless installation

Good afternoon,

We had quotes from 3 different suppliers, but chose Circuit Alert as the much better option and price wise much better.

Sales person came out talked us through what would be the better option for our requirements, quotation was sent, we accepted. Customer service called to make and appointment for the installation and on the day of installation 3 gentlemen arrived on time, explained what they would be doing installing 26 x 390 watt panels. They gents were swift left absolutely no mess and were all extremely polite and courteous. Installation was done in 1 day and all went well.

Customer service organise for us to connection to the Grid through their connections, so absolutely no bother for us what so ever.

Fro the day of accepting the quotation we were kept informed all the day until completion as well as various follow up calls after the completion to ensure we were happy.

Their professionalism and customer service is beyond excellent.

Extremely happy clients here and could not recommend the enough for the brilliant service.

Happy to elaborate further if required.

Best regards

Martin, Richard, Lisa and the crew were absolutely exception in the entire process, price, customer service and going beyond what I expected. I had quote a number of solar business quote. All in the area are fantastic - however Circuit Alert stood out.

Their follow service was also fantastic. I would highly recommend Circuit Alert!
