Daniel called me, we had a no-nonsense conversation and the quote arrived quickly. I made some changes to increase the size of the system which was sent through prompty. After signing off on the quote installation proceeded quickly and without drama. All rubbish was taken away and everything left neat and tidy. Would recommend.

Great installation on time meeting all my expectations

Great price for my 10.14 kW system 26 x 390Watt panels married to 8.2kW Fronius Inverter.

This system is providing 40 x70 kWh per day varies with cloud cover

Looking forward to very low power bills

The panels look sleek in black tinted colour against grey colour bond roof

The installation quality was extremely high I’m an Electrical Engineer and very fussy I have many contractors
Work for my in industry and I know what good looks like not just superficial

I would highly recommend this company to anyone

First company to contact me for a quote. Awesome to deal with from quote stage to installation. Very helpful, punctual, knowledgeable, efficient and great workmanship. They took care of all paperwork and applications for installation. I received all warranty certificates, registrations and manual instantly after installation. I was shown how to register for the app so that you can monitor performance and usage. Highly recommend them.

Support a great local company

Quoting was fast and questions answered quickly. Fast and problem free installation. I paid for a meter box upgrade as well as my box was 40 years old. All works completed in a little over 3 hours. Impressed at the speed of the installation.
Great team. Good customer service. I received all documentation by email just after installation completed. They organized grid connection. System performing faultlessly. Very happy overall.

It is delivering the design output, however my Retailer Ergon Energy only gives a $0.078 return for power produced and charges $0.22 for power provided from the grid (this is exclusive of Service fees and meter charges) There is no competition between Retailers in Central Qld.

I love my solar

Daniel is a great salesman - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Installation was done on time and quickly, with all paperwork for the energy supplier lodged promptly.
On the day, Daniel seemed a lot less approachable (perhaps more focused on the job). They wired in the new electric hot water system as discussed. I had asked (at the time he quoted) if they could install the cables for the security cameras through the ceiling space to the eaves of the house. Daniel was prepared to do this. However, on the day, he was not interested in this job. Choosing to leave it till they had completed the solar, meant they could then not remove roof sheeting in the required place to run the cables into the office.
This was unfortunate. However, I do like the solar installation - very neat. Can’t wait for the energy supplier to get here to install the new meter (4 weeks from solar installation).
I found your website very informative. I had DSES install a Solar Analytics monitor - turned the panels on for a while to check things out, and impressed with the information available. I have recommended you to numerous people.

Fantastic Experience

Solar quotes made it very easy to do product research on the different systems that I was quoted on. Daniel Shea offered their best price for a quality system and was very down to earth, easy to talk to which made the overall experience a good one. Staff were efficient and took time to clean up and look after property. Would highly recommend.

Excellent communication and no sales tricks just good information

Good system installed with the inverter installed in the garage instead of at the power box which was harder but keeps it out of the weather and done with no extra charge. System was installed 2 weeks after first contact. Top quality switches and wiring used. Wifi monitoring all set up. Answered all phone calls and emails quickly with correct information.

Very happy

The quoting process was simple yet detailed, with a variety of budget-minded options presented. Extremely fast response from time of quote to installation, and absolutely no hassles with either. I wasn't present for the install, however the place was left tidy, and the end result extremely pleasing....just waiting to see the pay-off with the electricity bill. I was originally quoted by five companies, three of which were walk-ins, and Daniel's price was more than competitive, beating two of the quotes by a couple of thousand dollars each. I'm glad I've gone local, as I know the support will be there in a timely fashion if anything goes wrong. Excellent job all round and completely hassle-free.

Daniel was prompt in contacting me, he answered all questions honestly and was very knowledgeable about solar, he was great to deal with. His workers were excellent at their job. The end product looks good and works well, plus they were also great to deal with and bent over backwards to help even installing a new heating element on my Hot water system without even being asked. I couldn't recommend these guys enough.

Above and beyond our expectations

I was really keen to take advantage of the solar for rentals initiative in Gladstone and Dan was the only person who was willing to take the time to answer every one of my questions without dismissing them as irrelevant, he was also the only person to advise me on the benefit of adding extra panels. He also knows about the Solar For Rentals scheme and what was needed to make our claim process hassle free. Installation was fast and Dan and his team were very professional, they respected the property (even putting cardboard between their ladder and the new guttering so as to not scratch it) and cleaning up after themselves. Dan is a Gladstone local so if there are any issues in the future I have peace of mind that he is close by to help sort them out.

We went with Daniel Shea Electrical for two reasons.
1. He had very good reviews and most were very positive.
2. More bang for our buck. He was the same price as some others but with two extra panels making it a 6.6 KW system + a hot water timer and they changed the thermostat also to a 1.8w all included in the price.
It was a hard choice to make because i found them all very professional to deal with.

The system is good and producing good outputs so I am very happy with it.
Decided to go with mid to top range panels and top inverter.
Not very much contact from installer, and some problems I had to sort out myself such as correct readings from the relay, and extending the wifi range.
Installer didn't meet on site to discuss the installation and the other options which I may have taken up if he had seen the electrical installation which was not a normal single phase dwelling.
Other than that, the installation time and workmanship were very good and I am very happy with both.
Some follow up from the contractor would be nice.

Great service and timely installation.
Not too impressed with the solar app but that’s not the installers fault.
Would recommend Daniel every time.
