About Clayton Solar and Electrical, Solar Installers

Based in South Australia, Clayton Solar & Electrical was established in 2010 and although new to the Solar Quotes Website, we have been providing Solar Power Systems to Adelaide and regional parts of the state for 8 years.

Tim Clayton is a fully accredited Solar Electrician and with his team of experienced installers, he does all the Solar installations himself thus enabling him to offer further services including meter box upgrades and any other electrical work required whilst onsite. We do not subcontract our work to third parties. 

Clayton Solar & Electrical believes it is small enough to offer a personalized service, whilst big enough to have strong relationships with suppliers to offer competitive prices.

Cut out the middleman and deal directly with the electrician; speak to our friendly team today, phone 0408 844 640.



Clayton Solar and Electrical Solar Reviews

We follow up with all reviewers after 12 months to see how their system is going since it was installed. These are all the reviewers who have responded to our 1 year follow up:
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

From start to finish I was very impressed with the engagement and follow up from Shane, I knew very little about Solar before going through the process, I was given sound advice and kept informed every step of the way. Out of the 3 quotes I got, Clayton's were first to get in touch, had the best quality system for the cheapest price. Tim and the team showed up exactly when they said they would and worked through some trying weather conditions. My solar is up and running, I am connected to the grid so everything went really well. I can highly recommend this company for your Solar needs and I am very satisfied with the work they did. Show additional information

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

Tim Clayton and his team were great. All aspects of the installation and what the system can provide were clear and helpful. Attention to detail with the installation was pleasing to see the end result. Show additional information
It's been a smooth transition from the quote, purchase and actual installation of the system. Friendly and knowledgeable personnel from Clayton Electrical.

Unfortunately, 6 weeks after the application to Origin was submitted (submitted March 9), our solar system is not yet operational. What happened was 1 month after Clayton Electrical submitted our application, I made a phone call to follow up our application status. No records whatsoever found in Origin. When I informed Clayton Electrical about this, they just resubmitted our application. I was informed we will be contacted of the proceedings once it's processed. Waiting game of another 30 days I was told. 6 weeks from application plus the additional 30 days to date, do the math and just hope you get connected after. If I didn't have the iniative to make the follow up call, I surely have waited longer for nothing. Very frustrating to know because now we didn't have a clue who didn't do their job properly.
I find the application procedure very unreliable and somehow very relax as you don't even get a confirmation that the application has been received and you just have to wait moving forward.
Not my first time dealing with solar as we have one installed back in Queensland but definitely our first time to experience this confusion and delay.

Hi Felix
Thank you for your positive feedback given the rather displeasing situation. I can assure you we did lodge the meter application promptly and the fault lies with the larger corporations.
It was much easier last year when SA Power Network provided the changeover but has since been put back onto the Energy Providers and no one has any accountability.
We do look forward to seeing your system up and running sooner rather than later.
Kind regards Team Clayton

Came when they said they would, fitted system in the day, explained everything clearly only paid after everything was fitted and we were happy nice bunch of guys . Show additional information
The installers came on time nd were very efficient friendly and helpful with any questions asked Show additional information
Glad I used Solar Quotes and what i know now about solar energy and the various systems i think empowered me making my decision.

Show additional information
It was a really difficult decision to choose the size of the system - a 6.6kW system would have been just adequate for our needs and was the best value for money overall, but we decided to go for the 9.9kW system so it is more than adequate for our daytime usage and hopefully we will later add a battery. For our needs, I rate the quality of the system "fantastic", but I do believe other panel brands may be a better quality than the Jinko. Show additional information

Shane Ford the salesman for Clayton Electrical was very obliging and went out of his way to help us.
We haven't had the Solarsystem installed yet, all being well that will happen in February.
I would recommend Clayton Electrical to anyone installing Solar

Shane Ford from Claytons was exceptional and Alex the installer/electrician listened to our needs and desires to have all wiring concealed which has happened. Still waiting on a final instruction and connection of the smart meter but all good so far. Show additional information

Clayton Electrical were an excellent company to deal with from the initial meeting with Shane to the installation by Alex and Matt.
Shane saw to all the paperwork and dealt with SA Power and our service provider so we could just sit back and relax and wait for
the day of installation. From the moment Alex and Matt arrived they worked hard and we were very impressed with their work ethic
and professionalism. The whole experience was hassle free. We would highly recommend Clayton Electrical for solar panel installation.

From the first point of contact all the way through until the job was completed the dealings were exceptional with Clayton Solar and especially Shane the sales person, his attention to detail and service exceeded my expectations and is an asset to this company. The installers were also very good and did a great neat job in a timely manner. I am also a business owner in a different trade and this is how I would expect my employees to conduct themselves. So well done on a great job guys. Now we are looking forward to the savings from the solar system. Keep up the good work guys.

A great company to deal with, excellent customer service and product knowledge. Show additional information
When I decided on installing a solar system I had no idea where to start. Thankfully I managed to find Solarquotes. The information provided by Finn was extremely informative and helpful.
This allowed me to have some understanding of the whole solar scenario and was valuable assistance when eventually communicating with Shane from Clayton Solar and Electrical and other companies that supplied me with quotes.
I got three quotes for my Solar System and Clayton Solar and Electrical offered me the best price by far.
One thing I was really appreciative of was at no point in the process did Shane pressure me to choose his company or bag any other company but was more than happy to provide information and advice well before I made a decision on whom to go with for my system.
Shane was most attentive in his communication and allowed me great flexibility with setting up a time and date for the install.
Alex and Matt arrived to do the install on time and were extremely polite and friendly and informative about the install process. They worked tirelessly over a long period and kept the worksite clean and tidy showing respect for my premises and didn’t leave any mess behind upon completion.
Shane and Alex also spent time explaining how things worked and how to monitor the performance etc. of the system. So far the system is working great and to my expectations based on the projections Clayton Solar and Electrical provided.
I highly recommend Clayton Solar and Electrical for your Solar System requirements. I will certainly be doing so to friends and relatives.

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 knew nothing about solar before reading your website. Very easy to use and very helpful. Show additional information
I got three quotes for the same system - Fronius 8kw inverter 10kw of Canadian Solar 275w panels - Clayton was the best price by a good margin and more importantly had great communication compared with the other quotes I received. Shane was quick to reply to emails and return phone calls which I think is very important in the early stages of getting quotes and trying to work out which installer to choose.

There was a delay to the install due to the inverter not being available, but as soon as it was available, the system was installed in under two days by Pat, Matt and Alex. During the install some of my roof tiles were found to be cracked and Shane organised matching replacement ones (at no charge to me) and left a few spares as well!

The inverter was setup by Alex via wifi so I can get updates via the Fronius app or log in via browser to solarweb to check on the system performance and history.
The system has been running very well for two weeks and been producing between 35 to 60 kWh per day averaging at around 45.
So I would recommend Clayton Solar based on my experience with them.

What a decision deciding on the solar system, so many options, so many people filling your head with all sorts of dribble and spin. After many weeks of comparing, thinking and procrastinating, We went with Clayton Electrical and never regretted it for a minute. Got a 7kW system installed and commissioned all in the one day. Installer even came back on a Saturday to run through a few things with me. Great service. Check out pics 7 & 8 :) Awesome eh? Artwork on my roof that has wiped out my bill. Happy days.

I was referred to Clayton Solar by a friend and found them to be a very professional team from point of first contact with Shane Ford to installation date. Shane was very informative from initial contact with many questions asked by myself with factual figures and answers to questions without the hard sales guff or pressure.
After I committed to the job, the installers arrived on time on the planned date, worked efficiently and cleaned up afterwards. I had everything explained to me regarding ongoing maintenance and support of my new Solar System. In addition to all this, I was advised that I would be able to track daily my use and consumption using an app of which one of the boys assisted in showing me. If you are looking for straight out facts in your research, honest tradesmen, I cannot recommend Tim, Alex, Pat and Shane more highly.

The installers from Clayton Electrical arrived on time and completed the work in 1 day which meant I didn't have to take time off work.
They know their stuff and the installation was completed without any dramas, and they cleaned up after themselves after a long day.
The system has only been operational for a couple of days and so far is working a treat.
