A great local installer.

Aaron from Clean Coast Solar and Electrical visited my home to provide the quote after personally inspecting the roof, location and switchboard. He provided a quote based on a couple of option's and explained them in a clear manner. It was reassuring to know that he and the team would be doing the install and they were local Wollongong residents. They were not necessarily the cheapest quote but they provided a good quality system and recommendations from a friend and on the Solar Quotes website indicated they were quality installers which was most important.
After accepting the quote we agreed on an installation date and they arrived on time to get the job done. The installation was very smooth and done in a neat and tidy manner. There were no damages or breakages and the site was left perfectly clean. The panels look great and are performing as predicted.
Aaron and the team did all the required paperwork and the whole process from start to finish has been very good with good communication throughout.
It is reassuring to know that they are close at hand if there are any issues in the future.

Great customer service and efficient installation

The process to obtain a quote was very good and was a point of difference in my choosing Clean Coast Solar and Electrical. Aaron came to my house, listened to my needs and answered all the questions I had about installation, choice of panels, inverter and whether a battery was right for me now. Aaron demonstrated a strong knowledge and was able to communicate in a very relatable way.

The installation was also a very positive experience. The team was punctual and very friendly. The installation was completed very efficiently and they kept a tidy worksite.

Aaron assisted me with the grid connection during the process, so I had little I need to do myself.

Same person quoted, installed with team, conducted fault finding and provided technical advice after install!

Aaron from the Clean Coast Solar and Electrical team arrived on time to provide quote, arrived on time to install, connected to the grid and returned that night when he discovered there was a minor setup issue.

Received two other solar quotes and engaged with one of the more publicly recognised companies. However, the larger company used sales person to sell product and sub contractors to install. Sales person was not interested in getting on the roof or confident on who the sub contractor on the day might be, acknowledging that sub contractor may have their own views on panel layout and invertor location. However, Clean Coast Solar were mid price, professional electricians, used panels with inverter that came with better reviews and mounted the roof to accurately discuss options.

Highly recommended and extremely happy with service.

Quality all around & great people to be part of your Solar journey

I would highly recommend Aaron, Nick and Shane from Clean Coast Solar & Electrical to be part of your Renewable Energy journey. Aaron was very punctual and approached the on-site measure up and quoting as an a solar solution (Solar System, Full consumption monitoring, Hot Water system timers, EV charging) not just as a solar installation. He took the time to understand our current billing and tariffs, our current & future needs. He quickly pointed out that our current energy retailer was taking us for a ride. Their quote was very competitive compared to the other 7 quotes that we received.

Their proposal ticked our boxes on good quality value for money products, high quality workmanship, the installers are employees, they are local, they organised the connection grid & smart meter upgrade and for any issues they are the single point of contact.

On the day of installation Nick and Shane arrived on time and did a fantastic job with the installation - a work of art with the all black panels and all black racking, even and straight. No tiles needed to be replaced, in fact they found an existing tile with a hair line crack in it which they replaced for us. After installation they explained how to use what they had installed as well as the solar consumption and production app.

They provide an extended 15 year warranty on the inverter and 15 year workmanship warranty - Quality in everything they use and do. I highly recommend this local team of Solar installation professionals.

Prompt and businesslike service

Aaron provided a quote with the options necessary for us to have either of two battery ready systems, and the crew that did the installation were prompt, tidy, and provided us with information to operate the system, and monitor it on a phone app.

Simple process for a clean install

Process for obtaining the quote was simple. Installer came out, explained the different options and then climb up onto the roof to measure the space to ensure they didn't over sell.
The team turned up on the organised day and the installation was completed in one go. The result is clean looking solar system.
Once complete, the team monitored the system, identified a charging issue and organised a firmware update with the supplier to fix the problem. There hasn't been an issue since the update and I've spoken to the team about adding in additional capacity which can be organised. Additionally, the team supplied the documents required for connecting to the grid and provided myself with the documents to assist in our power supplier configuring their side of the solar.

At this current time it has been a positive experience.

Look no further

I found the solar industry difficult to navigate with concerns the big companies were selling cheap poor quality systems.

I got lucky when I found Clean Coast Solar.
The entire process was made easy by their exceptional knowledge and workmanship.

My system hasn’t skipped a beat and has outperformed expectations in regards to winter performance.

Great service

The quoting process was very thorough, the guys spent time checking the roof and around to he house working out where everything would go. They arrived on time for the installation and didn't leave until it was complete which was quite late in the afternoon. I was impressed with the quality of their work and they tidied up at the end of the day. They also ensured to the connection was fully functioning on the app before they left. Highly recommend these guys.

Happy with the install. And follow up customer service. Not happy with Solar Analytics as they advertised a 10 year subscription that ended up only being 5 year with no price change? I would appreciate if solar quotes reviewed the recommendations for this company.

Great Communication and Price

I'd been looking around for the last 2 years and had received a few quotes then a friend recommended Clean Coast Solar and Electrical to me.
These guys were comparable in price (very similar to my lowest quote), but their customer service is what one me over.
I contacted them and sent them my electricity bills, they then quickly came out and got up on my roof to ensure that could fit the number of panels on that they thought I needed (and the best way to place them, so they were aesthetically pleasing).
They talked me through their quote and answered all my questions, they were also able to be flexible in were I could put the inverter.
The installation went well, they turned up when they said they would and cleaned everything up after.
They also organised the grid connection after the install.
These guys were great - they asked questions, answered questions, communicated when needed, always polite and punctual.
I think the main difference here is that you are talking to the actual installers, not a salesperson (don't get me wrong these guys are great too), but because I was talking to the installers there were no surprises on the day - no extra costs, everything was accounted for from the start.
I loved these guys!

Honest & Reliable

"Honest and Reliable" is the company's motto and its partners Shane and Nick certainly stand up to their claim. "Polite and Courteous" could be added too. Initial proposal literature is highly professional and informative. The guys kept to the date of installation and arrived on time carrying out the work efficiently, professionally, the cost reasonable and they took their rubbish with them.

After installation I was given a rundown on the invertor and what to expect with ongoing back-up support. They set up the solar app on my mobile so I can follow how the solar panels are working. As a senior this was very helpful. I highly recommend them as it was a breeze from start to finish.

Easy installation

The guys from Clean Coast Solar were more than professional from go to whoa. They made the experience easy and a pleasant experience, helping us along the way. The quotation process was professional, and we were impressed with onsite inspection and options offered. Installation was prompt and efficient with all mess tidied up. We had some teething issues with the street voltage too high causing alarms on inverter. They arranged Endeavour Energy to come and check things and seems fixed now. After the installation, rain slowed our advantages, but we now see the light literally! Should have gone solar years ago.

Great install

Great guys, know their stuff. Clean install. Well done. They got up on the roof to check the fit before the quote,I thought that was good.

Excellent Customer Service

The guys from Clean Coast Solar were the only company who contacted me to see if they could come and have a look at my property before quoting me. The actually got onto the roof to see where shadowing may occur and look at the roof pitch, something that other companies neglected to do. I had a couple of quotes from other companies who calculated from looking at Google Earth pictures. Not good enough, in my opinion.

The installation was straightforward, the boys turned up on time, did a very neat job, cleaned up afterwards and took the time to explain ever and answer any questions.

Customer service was excellent, they set up the app for my inverter so that I can see what I’m using and what’s going going to the grid. They organised the Smart Meter connection for me. I’m very happy.

Great customer/installer service

The three chaps that I worked with were amiable, not sales people (they were the installers) and they were the only ones that came out and measured the roof for the panels.

This was the deciding factor for me. They were the only ones that came to the site and measured up. All the others did it over the phone.

I must admist of the two that called me, they were very nice, polite and not pushy.

The installation went well. The chaps were polite, timely and they did exactly what they said they would do.

The chaps even organised for (and costed in the quote) for chaps to come out and make read the old solar hotwater system to be removed.

I cannot recommend them enough.

Cheers
