Very easy to deal with, quick and friendly service, a few bugs to iron out in the quote system.

Initial customer service was prompt and efficient and Jake was very easy to deal with. It took us a while to settle on a quote and get body corporate agreement (3 months) and Clipsal gave us plenty of time and space to make the decision, checking in with us maybe once via email. More importantly they didn't call me once a week to check in...which was a big plus as I hate getting phone calls and have my phone off most of the time anyway. Unlike some other quotes they also got identified our apartment correctly first time and didn't send quotes for different buildings.

I had asked for clip locks for the panels which were included in the first quote, but in the second quote after i'd asked for a different inverter, the clips were left off. Meaning the final quote i accepted needed to have an extra $600 added to account for that, which was annoying but i should have looked more closely at the quote. They also didn;t include the cost for the scissor lift in the initial quote, which was annoying as it was obvious that it was a townhouse and one would be needed. But upon me complaining they waived the cost of the scissor lift which was ok in my books.

Installers were professional and friendly.

Took a long time

The quote and advise was very helpful in selection of the system. The installer who were subcontractors arrived on time were polite and helpful and left the premises tidy. The grid connection was organised which didn't happen for over a month as there is no nbn to the premises another part had to be sourced and installed it took another sixteen day for the meter to be changed. Overal, it took a long time.

An Outstanding Experience

From quotation to commissioning, Clipsal Solar’s advice, attention to detail and support have been simply outstanding. We had a 5KW system, to which we wanted to add a battery and additional panels. Why? We had watched as declining feed-in tariffs and rising buy rates for power led to some truely shocking power bills, and wanted our solar system to make large power bills a thing of the past. Jayden from Clipsal Solar understood what we wanted to do and gave us three very professional and easily-understood quotations for us to consider. We chose the one which was the most future-proofing one, and it was duly installed - no mean feat during times of regional lockdowns, business and travel restrictions and the like - but we were reassured by the communications throughout from Clipsal Solar’s technical and support people. Pulse, Clipsal’s analytic package was installed and has ensured that system health and performance has been monitored since commissioning.

The result? Our existing 5KW system is fully integrated with the new 6.6KW system in the charging of our 13KWh LG Resu battery, and in the export of surplus power to the grid thanks to the Goodwe 5048D inverter. Our monthly power bills have always been in substantial credit since the new system was commissioned

We simply cannot fault the performance of Clipsal Solar at every step of the process and would recommend their services without reservation.

Wish now that we’d done it sooner!

Sales and quoting was easy, with people doing what they said they would do. Lots of good information from the guy who came out to quote.

Installation was done on schedule, with the guys taking care with everything to my satisfaction.

Grid connection was done yesterday and already at 9am our home is 66% self powered.

Looking forward to seeing those power bills drop.

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

We’ve had the system installed for a full year now. No issues with it at all, which is always good news.
We had it installed at the same time as a reverse cycle air conditioner. The solar panels have allowed us to heat and cool the house guilt free, while still saving us money on power bills. Only regret was not doing it earlier.
We picked a system that will allow us to add a battery as their performance improves and price falls. We will look at doing that in the future, as that will make us carbon negative. Especially if we get an electric vehicle.

Happy with install - recommending to friends and family

Up front, the sales/quoting process was a bit of a process. There were a few iterations to get things right, however the person I dealt with was always patient and professional.

The install went well - a bit of rain slowed things down a little, but the team doing the install got it done within the two days allotted. The install looks neat, the guys that did the work were great.

Clipsal has organised more or less everything - only thing outstanding is getting my retailer to switch over their end.

I've been pretty happy with the overall process. Clipsal has also been responsive to questions and clarifications after the install.

There is more than just compoents

I picked Clipsal Solar based on the components and the price, as well as getting Clipsal Pulse to monitor the solar system performance.

Clipsal subcontracts the installation out to a local installer. Blame it on the weather, yet, what was supposed to be an easy one day job turned out to take 4 days and I had to be home for those days. Lucky we are in a pandemic and used to working from home.

The inverter turned out to be on a west facing wall, so the cheapest option of a Bunnings canopy over the inverted (next to a hydronic heating boiler) was installed without any consultation and the result is an embarrassment despite the Clipsal sales person ensuring that there would be a proper solution provided.

Great system, installed well and looks impressive.

All three quotes supplied were excellent in detail. Clipsal was especially good at communicating and answering my questions as well as supplying good equipment. The installers were terrific and friendly. Everything was neat and tidy and they did what they said they would when they said they would. Customer service was excellent. All the people on the other end of the phone were easy to deal with. Original ratings

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

Yes. The Clipsal Pulse app is great although my family fail to use it properly and understand how to make the most of free energy. Great that it calculates savings and shows pay back time. All solar systems are disappointing in Winter however, but really do well once it warms up with negative cost days appearing regularly, even though El Ninia has really stuffed the performance this summer. It’s like two winters in a year. It’s a shame the energy companies in Sydney halved their feed in tariffs forcing me to shop around for a better deal. Since I export a lot of energy, the reduced tariff makes a big difference. I’m sure this is a tactic to force batteries upon us.

Clipsal Solar and ASI installer, 10kWp LG Mono X panels and 8kw Sungrow inverter, Melbourne.

We went with Clipsal Solar with a competitive price, good sales prices with the consultant doing a number of quotes for different inverter and panel combinations and two system sizes. Also a consideration is that it is likely that Clipsal Solar should still be around in a decade for any warranty claims. An onsite inspection was done by the installer ASI to confirm installation details including the inverter site. Installation was booked for two weeks after the deposit was paid. Australian Solar Installs Pty Ltd (ASI) was the installer. They were on time, friendly and tidy. The wiring to the switchboard and the inverter in the garage was all done in the wall cavities. Very neat finish at the inverter site.No visible conduit. I did go out and buy spare tiles during the installation as about 6 were broken. I did expect that. ASI happily swapped out some of the painted roof tiles ones under the panels with the unpainted spares so that the look of the roof was maintained. They did silicone a couple of tiles instead of replacing them so I'll replace them with two of the remaining spare painted tiles. The inspector can a few days later and he thought it was a very good installation and he rates ASI highly.

Overall, the prices had been great and W look forward to the merger reconfiguration bring done soon so we can start getting FIT credit. Clipsal Solar are organising that.

Smooth process

Terrific sales team, responsive and interested, sharing own system. Wasn't really given other options for shading, only solar edge and retrospectively probably didn't need to bother about shading at all once the site inspection was done.
Installation was quick and polite half day for the process one broken tile swapped out appropriately.
Been 2 weeks and waiting for the grid connection but confident it will be setup

Stress free experience

Clipsal Solar wasn’t the most expensive nor the cheapest but I would highly recommend them. They made the experience easy updating me all the way. Always on time and all workmen were polite and helpful. Did a great job on instal and I would not have know they were there cleaning up after themselves. Product working well so far very happy.

Clipsal Solar - great value and service

Very happy with the quote and explanation of the entire system. Installer attended at the arranged time. Only reason for the 4 stars is due to (still) waiting for a cable to be installed so system can start working, and I'd like to highlight that this is only a minor gripe.

Original Review on 25-03-2021:

Very impressed

Quick quotation response, took into account the quality aspect and quoted on panels and inverters I had researched and liked the look of.
Installation was done extremely quickly, within 3 weeks of initial contact, and I'm really happy they could do that as we had full scaffolding up already due to a roof renovation. Additional time would have meant keeping scaff up at vast cost for longer, so this was a key factor too.
Top marks for the installer, Anthony and his crew did a great job, finished a huge 10.2kW system on a very steep roof in 2 days, and somehow we had the inspection done literally the day after, still with scaff up. So we were up and running, with Pulse online the following week.
Enjoying using the Pulse app every day to track how we're going.
Top marks all around.

Excellent Service

From the 3 quotes, the first was much this is the best for you.
The second was these are your options call me if you want.
The successful one from CLIPSAL was we are here to assist you and I am available. The three offerors where asked to come to my home and they all did.

CLIPSAL was not the cheapest one, but did tick all the boxes, I received the first lot of options with maximum detail, and every question was answered promptly with a full new quote incorporating my new options. I settled for one which was well above the price of the previous quotes but was the most comprehensive and included most of what I wanted. From then on once I paid the deposit it was incredible service. The system was installed yesterday and received several emails from different people from CLIPSAL providing further information and details with "where to from here".

I don't know how one values the service of a supplier in money terms but if one can afford a bit extra there is a great service behind it.
Thank you people from CLIPSAL, great service!

Great system, sales and installation team who helped me through the process

Very happy to have had Clipsal Solar and their installation subcontractor (Trill Electrical) do our solar system. Quoting process was simple and online, and they answered all questions. Price felt reasonable for a middle of the road system. Communication was good through the process of doing the onsite inspection and organising the install - they were even able to move it forward by a week. Installation team from Trill Electrical were professional, clean (wore their masks when inside) and on time. Have already had a reach out from Clipsal getting the paperwork done with my electric company and I look forward to getting my app up and running to track how much I'm saving (once the rain stops).

Excellent service from start to end!

The pre-sales team at Clipsal were informative, responsive and knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions and followed up with emails, and provided quotes on a couple of options. The proposal documents were the best of all companies we went to.

The installation planning and the installation itself were managed really well and I was kept informed throughout. No issues, no delays, and everything looks and works great!

Post install, the customer success team is fantastic! They walked me through using the app, answered all of my questions, and follow up by email.

Clipsal’s premium quote was competitive and they provided a choice of two systems. I had more confidence in their analysis because they asked for four quarterly bills. Contact with Clipsal and the installer was clear. Both did what they said they’d do. The team was good to deal with onsite. Clipsal arranged the post-installation work with the energy supplier.

Awesome

The sales person, Anosh was very articulated and fluent.
Installation was nice, quick and they tidy up at the end.
They did help with the grid connection, though, it took like a week or thereabout to get all sorted out.

My personal opinion, I do not like the fact that the pulse monitoring app could not tell you in watts the amount of PV energy that has been generated for the day, weeks or months. I would prefer to have a monitoring app that could do such.

Overall, I am still happy with the installation and the system I got. However, it is too early for me to ascertain the durability and efficiency.

Clipsal Solar Empowering Homes

I took up the Empowering Homes Grant offered by the NSW government. Without this I wouldn't have been able to go the solar yet alone battery route.
My calculations show that I should be able to payback the system in a 6 year period, yet the loan is 8 years but also interest free and no fees.

My system was purchased through Clipsal Solar and Installed through Elite Power Group.

Dealing with Clipsal were good and pricing was fair and came under a lot of others that appeared to be putting a bit extra on their costs probably due to being a government program. Looking at trade pricing it appears Clipsal making a 15-20% margin on the trade price of all the goods, where as the other were making a 30-40% margin. this is probably due to buying power of the Clipsal Giant vs the local companies which is upsetting but how things work.

The Quality of the goods were mid range and they offer 15 years warranty, and Clipsal are a big company so I trust they will uphold that warranty.

The install went well, my only issues was the use of Ducting for the cable install around the inverter wasn't all so great but hey what can you do. and the use of silver mounting hardware with black framed panel. this was quite disappointing and I will be raising this with Clipsal as it detracts from the sleek and clean look of the Trina Honey Panels.

I haven't had all to great weather yet or been through a summer but the output isn't as much as what I had hoped for, likely due to having to put panels on my northern roof due to future renovations on the house and this being shaded in the morning during winter. I hoping either the summer will produce better results and maybe even a trim of the large neighbors gumtree is in order.

Being a Electrician and Electrical Engineer I was able to install a second system on my shed again with a good we inverter and 3.5kw worth of panel this that massively increasing my daily kwh production equaling my 6.66kw system on my house roof's daily production.

This will help me pay back this system much quicker as i was able to get this system really cheap.

Polite and convincing salesperson, Punctual & tidy installation team and Great customer service.

Jake the salesperson is very professional in providing accurate answers and gets to the point quickly. He was able to explain the product's benefits and finally convinced me to go with Clipsal Solar.

The installation team was delightful. They were punctual and the boys were very friendly. They ensure my place is clean and tidy after the installation.

Customer service is excellent. We're still in the process of downloading the Pulse App. James, is extremely patient with me, a customer who is not very literate in technology! He is prompt in helping with the organisation of the grid connection. In the meantime, James has provided a link to the Pulse as an alternative before getting the App.

In future, I sincerely hope that Clipsal Solar will continue with this great service if I do encounter any problems with the solar system.

Thank you so much for introducing this company. I appreciate it very much.

Kind regards,

Great Installation and Customer Service

I got several quotes from the top 3 companies and Clipsal came up tops. I have no regrets whatsoever.

The quote was detailed and specific and the whole process went very smooth.

The installation couldn't have been any better with the installers being very professional and knew very much what was best. They were punctual, polite and left the place as clean as they found it.

I was very satisfied with the administrative customer service provided. All paperwork including applications to the various external organizations were all handled efficiently and on time. I was also impressed the follow up even after the installation was complete up to finding the best and cheapest power supplier.

Great system and great team

I had a great experience with the Clipsal team from quote through to installation. The sales consultant was very knowledgeable and provided a quote based on my requirements and his expertise. The price was very competitive. Although delayed a little by the recent bad weather the installation team (Josh and Taren) were on time, courteous and willing to answer questions. They cleaned up each day when they finished and did a great job. Would highly recommend them. I have also had a follow up call to answer questions and set up monitoring and to assist with choosing a new energy plan to take advantage of the solar benefit.

Very helpful and knowledgeable customer service.

I compared about a dozen installers before choosing Clipsal Solar from 3 recommended by Solar Quotes. Not the cheapest but the Clipsal Solar Specialist (Jake) came across as the most informative and knowledgeable of all the installers I spoke to. Clipsal also offered the best options a system using power optimisers on the panels as I have a lot of shading from gum trees in my area.

I intend to upgrade at a later date with extra panels and a battery and as such I have no reservations in recommending Clipsal Solar.
Show Details

Fairly good process overall, choice of quality panels, confident in company long life

- Quoting: Easy back&forth, I did feel a bit of ???? when I requested the 4th "small" change to the quote, but in the end I got what I wanted (and I had to request tilt frames myself), with a bit of flexibility built-in.
- Installation: One project manager did the first inspection and was there during the whole installation. They had some trouble to get cables down the internal walls, but they took the time (at no extra cost to me) and that means the result is very clean, with minimal cabling visible. Because of this they had to come back the next half-day to finish, which was no troubles for me.
- Customer service: Good follow-up, they handled everything until the system was fully ready and exporting, and my monitoring app was setup.
- Monitoring: The Clipsal "Pulse App" is very nice, showing production/use/export numbers with little delay (about 30 seconds I think).They also monitor my home consumption across 6 areas, so it's possible to see how much power I'm using in different parts of the house. They also have 24h graphs, bill entry, and an "insight" screen that's supposed to give tips to be more energy-efficient (but that will take more time to be useful).
My only disappointment there is that I don't have access to other data from my system, like the performance of each individual panel (they have power optimisers). The cust-rep said their tech team has access to these, and would use them to find faults and let me know.

Professional Installation and Customer Service

System installed by Clipsal after reviewing 4 installers.

Quoting was a an issue across the board with all the companies I contacted. Using the standard guidelines for panel lay out would have resulted in a mess of panels at the front (North) of the house. The rear has a flat roof from an extension (a few % gradient south) that could utilised with tilt frames. All companies overlooked this and I found most difficult to get to come and assess without an extra charge. Clipsal quoted on this and came out prior to the installation to measure and finalise the quote/layout. I didn't want major changes happening during installation.

Installation was very good, it took 2 days to complete due to weather issues. Informed all the way through the process.

Customer Service followed up post installation to advise as a few minor things that need attention e.g. Inverter Canopy wasn't available so they'll be back to do that. Also spent 15 minutes going through the Clipsal Pulse App which provides consumption monitoring per circuit in the house. Easily identify what is using power etc, not just in/out at the meter.


Overall impressed with Clipsal and the way everything was handled.

The installation logisitics was a disappointing part of my process. The installation date was changed 4 times either due to equipment not being available or delivered, or lack of communication with the installer. Clipsal apologised and compensated me for this which showed me they valued me as a customer and were keen to rectify the problem.

The installation went smoothly. The installer Josh was great and explained all aspects of the install. He was polite, punctual and tidy. He even returned the next day to help me with some cosmetic touch-ups.

The post installation customer service has been excellent. I received a call on the Clipsal monitoring app and how to analyse the data. They also provide a review of the electricity bill 3 months post install and recommend whether a provider change would result in further savings.

Overall very happy with the install apart from the cancelled installation dates.

Gotta love Solar

Started with Solar Quotes— lots of good information to assist those contemplating Solar. Received 3 quotes and opted for Clipsal Solar. They weren’t the cheapest but invested most time during the sales process. Project manager contacted us prior to install to let us know what to expect on the day. Install team turned up on time and completed installation in a very professional manner. No issues whatsoever. Just need to get the new meter installed so we can fire up the system. Original ratings

Dear Bob

Thank you for your honest feedback and choosing Clipsal Solar as your energy partner and advisor. We aim to build this ongoing relationship through our Clipsal Pulse App and your dedicated Customer Success Manager who will keep a close eye on your solar system health.

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

So, my last bill which represented the Oct/Nov/Dec/ quarter, I actually received a nett credit from Energy Australia-- Nothing to pay for the entire quarter. That is with my pool pump running in the daytime hours and not really changing our usage patterns, other than trying to make the most of the sunshine hours. So the system has exceeded all expectations. My only regret is that I didn't do this 5 yrs ago!!!

Fantastic customer service

Clipsal Solar have been extremely professional all the way through. I was able to learn a lot during the process which took some months as there is a lot to learn. I feel confident we made the best choice.
