Coffs Solar Energy Solar Reviews

Coffs Solar Wizards

Every step of this process, from receiving a quote right through to the handover of the product was easy and simple.
The staff at the admin end are friendly, patient and kept us well informed as to appointments etc.
The staff who installed the system were extremely pleasant and efficient tradesmen. (Even though it was 38C that day!!)
After sales service - we received a visit from the tech guy who walked us through how the whole system worked, installed apps for us to monitor our usage. And left his number if we had any difficulties or questions.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to others.

Purchase and Installation of 6.6kW System

Coffs Solar Energy were efficient, neat & safety conscious with the installation. Inverter work inside garage very neat. Chose the cheaper system (inverter only) as both carried 10 year warranties on all equipment. Coffs Solar punctual and good to work with. Grid connection and import/export meter change arranged by Coffs Solar Energy - waiting for Origin Energy to changeover meter to boot system. Capex payback could be as short as 3 years depending on export access to the grid. Show additional information

Installation on time, tidy and installers were very polite

Good bunch of people working for the company, sales rep turned up on time (unlike other company that hasn't turned up at all or even a phone call to this date.) and was very helpful explaining things in a language that the average bloke can understand. Office staff great. Installers very efficient and polite and easy to get a long with. Would recommend your company to any one without hesitation. Show additional information

Coffs Solar Energy's salesperson was very helpful and knowledgeable. He came to my home and inspected the site. The other company who quoted were not local (based at Tweed Heads) and did not meet with me or visit my house. Although their quote was cheaper and the system was bigger (6.5kW compared to 6.05) and quoted a more high end inverter, I believe their STC component of the quote was over priced.

Installation of the system looked to be very good and the workers that did the panel work were great. The electrician was very helpful in the placement of the electrical equipment along with great trade skills. Many thanks to Coffs solar energy and their work force

Coffs Solar Energy is local. Combine local ownership with pride and professionalim, why would you risk anyone else? (Especially those misleading budget supplier advertising on TV online and in print). We know that ANY and ALL issues are dealt with by Coffs Solar Energy and that they are HERE! for US! Cheers!

I spoke to the team at Coffs Solar Energy and explained my situation and expectations . They listened to what I had to say and showed a couple of different systems and system sizes.
They did everything they said ,workmanship was great ,cleaned up when finished and ran me through all I needed to know about our system.
Fast forward a couple of months, and with my system I can see the benefits already. I have the ability to monitor production daily and also it is monitored at the Inverter manufacturers. Which gives me piece of mind . Also through the Smart Meter I can see my usage and output. It has been great, not that I'm looking forward to my next power bill, but I can see it will be considerably less than previous bills .
So in closing I have no hesitation in recommending Coffs Solar Energy to prospective buyers.

I arranged for my house and my parents house to be quoted for solar. Adam came out and explained what would be the best set up and product and gave us a really competitive quote. We went ahead with the install at both properties. Parents house straight forward, my house not so, but Mark and Adam in particular were very patient answering all my phone calls, emails and "how and why's".
I had my 10kW system installed and once again I wasn't let down by the install team. They were all really professional and polite and did an excellent job. My house has a heritage listing on it which made the process a bit more tedious than usual. Both Adam and the install team did an excellent job sorting it out and keeping the council happy. The installers were really tidy and cleaned up all the rubbish and mess before leaving. We really liked how they left our house as they found it.

A few day later Nick came around and sorted the wifi, app and account details. Once again, very patient with a solar novice and after a few emails, I'm able to access all my info on the Fronius site and app.

While I'm thankful for the work put in by the Coffs Solar team before and during install, I'm really impressed with the after sales service from Nick and in particular Adam. While my system has been running flawlessly I had a few hassles understanding and logging into my Fronius account. Nick was able to check and get everything sorted for me. He was able to explain how to navigate the site and trouble shoot in future. Now I have no problems accessing my information.

Really happy with the whole process and our solar set up. Their after sales service is outstanding

Two weeks post installation of the panels and we are still waiting for the changeover meters to be installed. A promised visit to explain the system warranties is still to be scheduled, but the company is currently very busy with both residential and commercial customers.

Having local representation and a solid reputation was more imprtant to us than getting the absolute lowest price, all the moreso since our neighbour has been unable to contact the firm responsible for installing his system. We look forward to a long sunny summer and 15cents FIT.

Coffs Solar were very professional and helpful and did a good job in installing our system. Show additional information
We are very happy with our system and with Coffs Solar that helped us from start to finish. We did a full 3 quotes and talked to a number of companies. Coffs solar came second best in price, but very much first in giving us confidence in what we were embarking on. Sound advice and quality service meant a lot to us so they won out with a good price and quality service. We will be returning to them for batteries further down the line.
Thanks CSE

They sold me a 2kW system with the maximum 9 panels. In the middle of summer with the sun directly overhead the maximum power produced is 1.4kW no where near the 2kW system.

Supplier Reply

The original 2kW solar system was commissioned on 26/9/2013. We installed this solar PV system on an iron roof, orientation of 280 deg (WNW) and roof pitch was 10 deg. This 2kW system will produce an average high of 10.32 kWh (summer), average low of 4.83kWh (winter) and yearly average of 7.96 kWh. Peak hourly generation based on the westerly location and low roof pitch would be no greater than 1.6kWh. We did supply the client an extra 250w panel on 07/05/2014 to assist with increasing the peak hourly generation. The client does have a retirement village owned disk/dial meter allowing the client to get a 1 for 1 credit on wasted solar energy. The solar system is performing as expected.

The local supplier responded much quicker with a quote and was cheaper than others and could install the system quicker than out of area companies Show additional information
Turned up when they said,neat and tidy work Show additional information
After having researched PV systems and suppliers/installers for a number of weeks I decided to go with Coffs Solar Energy. Mark and his team use their considerable knowledge and experience to design a system suited to your needs and budget. Do not underestimate the value of a local supplier which you can deal with on a face to face basis. The whole team was friendly and expedient, the installation was neat and their pricing very competitive. Since I am sure we have all too often experienced poor service and advice I have no hesitation in recommending these guys for your solar energy needs. Regards, Ennio. Show additional information

As yet to comment on customer service as not connected to grid. I feel that the installer (not the supplier) needs to be a bit more informative re the workings of the inverter than just hand over the manual. "We install lots of different ones" is a lame excuse.

All work was to regulation (conduit piping for cable work etc) and they cleaned up after themselves.

Salesperson not afraid to gather more information to answer my incessant questions.
