Reliable installer

The quote was received in a timely manner and included options for cheaper version. The sales person did not hassle me for an answer. Once I had given the go-ahead the installation went very smoothly with no holdups or hiccups. The installers were very respectful, prompt, reliable and even cleaned up after themselves. The after sales communication has so far been outstanding in letting me know how the system has been functioning and what I need to be doing. Show additional information

Very Satisfied Customer

It was a very pleasant experience dealing with all of the team at Clayton Solar and Electrical. We were very impressed and respect the fact that Tim has put his name and face on his company.
After promptly receiving the option to have quotes for 2 different size systems, we decided to choose Clayton Solar and Electrical. Shane attended personally for further discussion, all with no hype or pressure and later, arranged all the paperwork associated with the installation. Tim, the owner and installer, completed the work in 1 day as scheduled and even moved the TV aerial to improve layout and reduce shading.
We thoroughly recommend Clayton Solar and Electrical to anyone considering installing solar panels.

Great service! Definitely recommended!

Shane gave a number of quotes for different solar panel brands as requested. He got in touch as soon as he can and whether if it was email or through the phone, communicating was very easy. Everything was done in a day without a problem. It did not appear too complicated for us who are new to the solar system. Tradies were prompt and polite. No unncecessary marketing involved.

Great installer, professional, reliable and good value

Clayton Solar and Electrical installed a 6.6kw system on my roof on the 1st of July and I was very happy with the service, from the quoting to installation and follow up. Shane provided a quote the same day as requested and followed up with a site inspection - I have a 100 yo 2 story house and Shane designed the position of the panels to have minimal impact on the look of the house with the maximum number of panels, plus the installers navigated the very small roof access area easily. The installation was completed in 1 day - starting at 8:30 and finished by 4pm, and it was done neatly with no rubbish left behind and all cables were concealed, plus the team were polite and considerate. Shane helped me with the app on my phone and computer so I can monitor the system remotely. I would highly recommend Clayton Solar and Electrical to anyone looking for a professional solar installation company at a good price. Show additional information

System installed just 3 days ago. Still early days to assess the system. However looks like it's working as it should. Good service from the sales and installers though. They started early morning and finished early afternoon. On a sunny June day, had 22kwh produced. next day was a gloomy rainy day and had about 2kwh!. Show additional information

The team at Clayton Solar and Electrical were so wonderful to deal with from start to finish. Every step in the process was done so in a professional and friendly manner with everything explained clearly. The install was done with minimal fuss. The team were lovely and kept us in loop during the day as to how they were progressing. We were so impressed with the final product and our first bill is already in credit!

We have since referred Clayton Solar and Electrical for another solar job of which I hear they have delivered yet another professional and friendly install. Thanks guys!

I am in the process of buying, installation will be in june, but so far Clayton Electrical have been terrific, they do not chase you or hound you but they request you to contact them with questions and when you do contact them they are quick to respond with informed options. I would label them “ Old School” they provide service! Show additional information

I would happily recommend Clayton Solar and Electrical based on their good value and great customer service. Examples of this include:
1. Quick response to all queries and paperwork associated with the installation.
2. Tim, the owner and installer, completed the work in 1 day as scheduled and even moved TV aerial to improve layout and reduce shading.
3. A couple of broken roof tiles promptly replaced.
4. Shane is a pleasure to deal with and no hard sales push.

I appreciated Shane's no pressure approach and prompt reply to emails, even after normal business hours. Claytons was the only quote I received that adequately compensated for chimney shade. As a result two strings were installed rather than all 20 panels being on the main roof. 10 panels are on the main roof facing north, and the remainder are facing east on the extension, almost flat on the 2nd string. Surprisingly, the East facing panels output more than those on the main roof, especially in the afternoon. Everything was up and running on the day of installation and wifi monitoring connected. A small Adelaide business with all work carried out by the owner. Could not fault the service provided. Show additional information
We are very happy with all aspects of the service from Clayton Solar and Electrical. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is considering installing solar. Show additional information
Reliable company that delivered all that was promised and more when installing my solar panels. Most definitely recommend. Show additional information
Personalised service from the start. I really appreciated Shane's honesty when assessing the right system for my needs, and he has been very conscientious about following up after installation. He came and explained how I can monitor the system using the app, and has given me good advice. The installation team were efficient and the whole process has been smooth sailing, though I am still waiting for my provider to change my meter over. I can highly recommend Clayton Solar Company. Show additional information
Shane quickly provided the quotation and readily supplied any extra information I required. He has also followed up post installation to ensure the system is satisfactory. The components recommended were high quality at a reasonable price. The install was arranged to our schedule and Alex, Matt and Patrick completed it in under two days. The roof panel arrangement (east/west) and inverter position were discussed on site and installed professionally to provide the maximum benefits from the system. It produced results immediately and has so far exceeded expectations given the prevailing weather. Can't wait for continuous blue skies, although it seems to work nicely so far (with 40+kWh achieved even on cloudy days). The staff mentioned above are friendly, professional and provide a quality service and overall I would have no hesitation in recommending Clayton Electrical as a solar supplier.

I normally do not bother with these questionnaires but I wish to take the time to say how wonderful this company was to deal with.
No hassells or harrassement from them. They kept in contact with me during the process of having the solar installed and it was a great experience.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this company if you are considering having solar installed.

I can highly recommend Clayton Solar for a great combination of system quality and price. Service for sales and installation were excellent and really easy to work with. Shane the sales guy is very responsive and not pushy. Show additional information
Their representative, Shane, was down to earth and able to answer all of my many questions in a straightforward manner. They also had the most competitive price from the reputable installers. Though was only a few hundred dollars in it. I gained the impression that this firm would be around for a long time if I should ever need any assistance with the system in the future Show additional information

Clayton Solar and Electrical were the second people I got a quote from they did not pressure us and were polite and forth coming with all information required .
They removed the old system and fitted new one in the time said and system is working extremely well. Thanks to Tim, Paddy, and Shane the system was up and running the same day as we already had the right meter installed.

Overall a good experience - wish I had done it sooner. Show additional information
From initial contact to after sales service they were exceptional. Customer service from Shane was second to none. Tim and Patty at install were great as well.The team at Clayton were not pushy and very knowledgeable. Glad I made the decision to go with them. Show additional information
I can’t say enough to praise Shane and the team - from first contact to install to follow up questions months later their service, knowledge and willingness to help and educate far exceeded expectations! The system is fantastic, first bill has dropped by close to $1000 in the middle of winter! (Not to mention only having it installed half way through the billing period!) Shane was amazing right from the start, not at all pushy, happy to answer my many questions and back up each and every recommendation he made. Down to earth, friendly and the ability to explain everything in simple terms. Install boys Tim Patty and Victor were on time, efficient and friendly - left everything clean and tidy on finishing and worked through cold wet weather to complete on time and have it up and running as soon as they could. Out of three quotes from highly recommended businesses I am so glad I picked Shane and his team - best price, best service and best decision! In an age where service standards are constantly disappointing these guys remain solid tradies with an old school commitment to customer service! ???? Belinda Show additional information
