Clayton Solar and Electrical Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

Great service and products

Shane and the team were great pre and post installation. System seem to working great so far Show additional information

A very efficient and punctual installer

We had great trouble getting a solar meter installed due to the inefficiency of our power supply company.
We had to wait over 3 months to get connected and it was only through the terrific support we received from Shane Ford of Clayton Solar and Electricity that we ended up with a satifactory result.
The amount of time and effort he put in to help us get there was very appreciated and I would
have no hesitation in recommending Clayton and Shane Ford to anyone contemplating purchasing Solar. Everything we were promised was delivered and it was no fault of Clayton that our Power Company proved to be so inefficient,unsupportive and obstinate in our dealings with them.

Fantastic experience with Clayton Solar and Electrical

The Clayton Solar and Electrical team were fantastic all the way through the process.

As we have terracotta tiles it was important to us that the company send out an installer to inspect our roof for design and installation. Shane was more than happy to send out one of their internal experienced installers (not a contractor!) and confirm the correct design and set up prior to accepting the quote.

This was something we had found other companies could not provide and something that definitely set Clayton Solar and Electrical apart from the rest of the quotes.

The installation team was professional, punctual, tidy and more than willing to answer any questions I had on the day. They also went the extra mile and came back the following day to ensure that the solar edge system was connecting correctly to the monitoring platform.

Thanks to Shane, Tim and the fantastic team at Clayton Solar and Electrical for their work and making the experience fantastic.

Everything was handled very efficiently from the quote right through to the installation, property was left in a tidy condition and all personnel were polite, friendly and very helpful Show additional information

Excellent team, professional reliable and very supportive

As first timers with solar panels, we had lots of questions. Shane was the first point of contact, firstly by phone then he came to our home We were very comfortable with the meeting; he was not pushy and very genuine in his approach. We signed up then and there. The installation team were very professional and friendly always attending when they said they would. We were very comfortable with the whole process.
Shane said from the start that he would always be there to answer any concerns from the start to the finish and would keep in touch after the work was done to monitor the outcome. He stressed that if he could not answer his phone he would always ring back ....and he did. MAGIC.
The system itself has proven to be very successful with a dramatic reduction in the cost of our power bills.
Highly recommended.

Great Experience

Sales and quoting process was made very easy by Shane who was very helpful and always available to answer all of my questions with no pushy sales tactics. Installation staff were punctual and professional and completed the job within the estimated time frame and kept me up to date throughout the day. Overall my experience with Clayton Electrical was very pleasant and am very happy with the system they installed. Show additional information

Excellent service

Shane was fantastic from the very start, he emailed a quote, no high pressure sales tactics. He offered to visit to go through the quote and answer our questions and so we made an appointment for him to visit. We had thought we would probably sign up on that visit, but again, he didn't pressure us to sign anything. We found him so helpful and the quote was very price competitive. We gave the go ahead the following day, the installation was booked in and the solar system installed. The solar system is working better than expected, we are very happy. We have had solar installed on a previous home so we have some idea about solar and the systems available, it can be a minefield and quite bewildering, but Clayton Solar have been very professional and their service is spot on, Shane has also followed up to ensure it is all working properly. We have already recommended them to our friends. Show additional information

Someone you can trust.

I really appreciated receiving my three quotes from SolarQuotes. I first watched the video on solar and felt confident in dealing with them from there. The three quotes each offered similar systems with different approaches and I chose what suited my style best.
The instilation was quick and efficient and importantly on time.
Great customer service from Shane.
Shane was very good at explaining options. I did not feel that he was selling me anything and he was prompt and courteous with all contact.

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
Fantastic customer service and my house was left spotless, no rubbish left behind. 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.
