Excellent from the start to the finish

The team was very helpful from the start to the finish. Ben provided me with a couple of quotes. Ben explained everything to me and he made it easy for me to understand. Troy and his installation team were efficient and clean and tidy. After the installation Troy gave us all the information I needed to download the app. I would highly recommend DQElectrical.

Good works by DQ

We went with DQ after Don took the time to share his considerable expertise, checked our situation then ticked all the technical boxes by providing a value solution. He worked through all the options including the expensive ones, before arriving at a value 'sweet spot' for our circumstances.

The DQ installers worked well, through intermittent showers and awful weather to complete the install in the day. The install wasn't entirely issue-free but the tech's worked through these until resolved.
DQ organised the grid connection. DQ staff were at all times polite, punctual, helpful and professional. Overall I was very happy we chose DQ as our solar provider.

Great service and professionalism from start to finish. Cannot thank them enough.

From the time I spoke to Ben about a quote I was at ease with the service and honest opinion I was provided.Also knowing the company I purchased the system from were the same people who would install the unit was great.

On install day I was advised of each step and what the installers were doing and asked for my acceptance before each step of work commenced. This assurance made it easy to know both customer and company were on the same page.

Workmanship was A1 and the team worked in harmony.

Work sight was left absolutely clean once completed

Down to Earth

We got five quotes for our solar system. We didn’t know all that much about solar beforehand and it was hard to understand the finer detail and to compare all of the different panels and inverters that we were quoted on by different companies.

Matt from DQ was efficient in providing written quotes for four different solar systems that could suit our needs. He took the time to explain things to us and we felt he was approachable, down to earth and honest which we couldn’t have said about some of the other retailers we dealt with during the shopping around phase.

Once we settled on our chosen system (LG panels and Fronius inverter), we negotiated an agreed installation date and we found communication from DQs office to be outstanding. We ended up getting an earlier installation date and our system is now operational before it was even due to be installed.

One of the reasons we liked what DQ we’re offering more than some other retailers was that DQ have their own electricians that install their systems - they aren’t contractors. Installation day went very smoothly and we are very happy with the design and look of the system. We asked for the inverter to be installed in a specific position and this was no trouble for them.

Overall, we really appreciated the efficient service and communication from all who we dealt with at DQ. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company to others who are wanting to deal with company who communicate effectively, have quality products installed in a timely manner and who don’t have the time or inclination to be pushed around and manipulated by sales-driven retailers!

Great quality installer!

DQ Electrical were fantastic right through from the quoting to the install. Don was only too happy to answer any and every question that I had and while other installers were trying to push me to upgrade to a larger system, Don explained to me why it wouldn't be worth it for me, which is one of the reason why I decided to go with DQ.

They use quality components, are competetively priced and explained everything to me every step of the way on the day of install. Have had follow up calls afterwards to make sure I am happy with everything and I have no doubt that if there are issues they will be quick to help.

Happy to support a local SA Business and would reccomened DQ Electrical to anyone wondering about solar.

Service you would recommend to your mother!

Everyone who I dealt with from DQ Electrical throughout the solar experience was friendly and professional; from the initial phone call, to the installation inspection, and resulting installation. They listened to what I wanted from my system and tailor designed what I required.
The electricians that attended on the day gave confidence that spending the extra few dollars was worth the service as they walked through the installation and ensured everything was setup to my satisfaction prior to leaving. The electricians were highly courteous and professional in their approach to the work, not once did they swear (even when trying to locate some difficult wiring) and always asked prior to entering the house, could not speak highly enough of them!

The follow up support is where the true test begins but I have no doubt that it will be faultless as I received a phone call after the installation from the head office to ensure everything was installed to top standards. They also supplied multiple contact points if I have any issues,questions so I know that there will be someone who can assist, without delay.
All in all, I am very happy with my decision and it was a stress free experience dealing with DQ Electrical, from beginning to end.

Great Company to deal with.

The sales/quoting process was exceptional. We were upgrading & replacing an old system. There was no sales pitch, everything was explained in great detail (with visiual aids on screen) & what savings we could expect to get from the different size systems. There was no pressure to make a decision then & there.We walked away knowing & understanding a whole lot more about solar systems other than just geting a cheaper electricity bill. We returned a couple for days later & placed our order.

The installation team arrived on time & were very polite & friendly. Before they left, I particulary liked that they called us out & showed us on an ipad how to interperate the information being sent to our computer from the Smart Meter to enable us to further maximise our savings by exporting more back to the grid. They left the site as they found it, with absolutley no mess for us to clean up.

I would have no hesitation in recomending DQ Electrical to anyone. A great Company to deal with in all aspects!

Fantastic installation and customer service

Easy to deal with and understand as new to solar and learning about it all can be overwhelming they make it easier to understand.

Quoting and sales process was easy great customer service and following up the installation process was easy they turned up on time did what they needed to cleaned up after themselves.

Once installed they helped us hook up to the system and went through how to turn it off and on and what the different lights meant and if we had any questions just give them a call.

Very happy and satisfied with their level of customer service would highly recommend them and will definitely use them again when we build.

A wonderfully professional company

In short DQ Electrical and solar are excellent. They are to be highly commended for their outstanding customer service, expertise and professionalism at what they do.

I ended up getting 10 quotes before i settled on DQ Electrical and solar and I certainly not disappointed. They were only too happy to answer all of my questions, e and the only company to invite me down to their showroom where they proceeded to explain the whole process in detail.

On day of installation, they were on time, very clean and tidy and their workmanship outstanding. Special commendation to Min the electrical supervisor and his team who did the job.

A shame you only allow 5 star ratings because the company deserves a 10. Thank you so very much!

Excellent end-to-end experience

The quote we received was informative, offered different price options & gave us a graphic as to where on the roof the panels would be placed. It also detailed the savings to be made once the system was installed.
The installation was trouble-free - the team were friendly, polite, tidy & punctual. Communication with the office was good & they helped organise the connection to the grid. Would happily recommend DQ Electrical in Adelaide.

Professionals from start to finish.

First contact Ben gave me pros and cons and what system would help on my limited roof space.
His knowledge was spot on while others were unsure. The installers Josh, Michael and Rev came on time and explained the process of what was going to be done. Was very grateful for the Professional, respectful and eye to detail approach.
Have already recommended them to friends. Even if you find cheaper make sure compare solar with solar, like for like with DQ you get value for money thankfully I got this decision right as its a huge investment.

I was very impressed with their professionalism. The customer service was also excellent and after sales follow up was appreciated to see if we were pleased with the system.

Excellent experience

We had our solar panels installed by DQ Electrical and we are very happy how the job was done starting from quotes and finishing signing the final invoice. The actual installation was very accurate and professional, despite the complexity of the roof shape. All of our questions were answered and we were connected to the grid on the same day. Highly recommended. Show additional information

A great help in the selection process.

After reading lots of information from their website I received 3 quotes from SolarQuotes. Wanting to seek more info I noticed more installers listed on Finn's page and rang DQ Electrical, right from the start I felt comfortable chatting with Ben who made sense of PV solar. Yes the decision came down to price but Ben was able to make changes that others either wouldn't or resisted to do. Installation day went smooth even though they first had to decommission an existing system, with the installation complete, electricity could be exported immediately as our meter was compatable. I also like to thank Lilia for her help during the process. A special thanks to Josh and the boys for the great installation, their punctuality and tidiness. Show additional information

1st Class Service all the Way

Once again our experience with DQ Electrical Pty Ltd was second to none.

From our initial enquiry regarding purchasing a Battery for our existing solar setup, through to the installation and after service the experience has been excellent.

All the staff at DQ go above and beyond to assist with any questions without being pushy in trying to make a sale.

On the day of the install all the boys were polite, easy to deal with and didn't leave any mess behind. Don even stayed back waiting until my meeting finished to make sure we were connected to the online App and understood how it all worked even though we don't need to do anything as the system runs itself.

When on the next day there was a beeping coming from the unit, Don was straight onto it and a simple software upgrade by the manufacturer and all was right again with the system.

We would highly recommend Don and the team at DQ Electrical Pty Ltd for any Solar or Battery system sales and installs. We couldn't be happier with their professionalism and excellent workmanship for both our Solar and Battery system purchases and installations. Thank guys!

Simple Process

Sales and quoting process was very good, unfortunately one company dragged their feet for a week and a half before submitting their quote. Installed is booked in for 23/9, so am unable to comment yet, but will advise if not satisfactory. Customer service so far has been very good. Will advise on this also after installation if not happy. Show additional information

Professional, Knowledgeable, Friendly and Focused on Top Level Service

The Sales Quoting process was simple and smooth and as I was on the move a great deal, the cell phone updates were very helpful.. Hardly needed clarifications and if I did, Lilia from Admin fronted that very well.

The installation Team (Troy, Marie and Tom - I hope I remembered their names correctly) arrived on time, were very professional, fast and very focused on a high standard of delivery. They also fronted my newbie / ignorant questions with patience and friendliness to ensure I knew what was going on. Customer Service? Excellent.

There is absolutely nothing I had to follow up on from the time i confirmed the installation to the final briefing I received after completion of final unit deployment. All communication (External and Internal) were handled by them and I was updated constantly throughout.
So a big resounding THANK YOU to the DQ Electrical team and if you want to use me as a reference in future don't hesitate.

Repeat business for a professional company

DQ Electrical installed our solar panels a couple of years ago. We were impressed by their level of professionalism, their installation team and the quality of the panels and inverter. We decided to by a battery and again, DQ electrical impressed us with their price. Don, the company owner and his staff were all incredibly helpful in helping us make a decision about a battery. Today we had them back again, installing a Tesla Power Wall and we couldn't be more pleased. Reg and Josh provided excellent service and represented the company well. I definitely recommend DQ electrical! Show additional information

Nice installer, nice system

We had a solar system installed a couple of months ago, and added a battery to the system last week (price/specs listed are for the combined system)

We got quotes from a few providers for the solar system. Some of them never even visited the property, and just based their estimates off pictures from google. DQ came, checked shade from nearby trees, and quoted for a few different panel/inverter options. When we compared all the quotes, two of DQ's options were in our top three.

When they came to install the solar system, things weren't perfectly smooth - we have a 3-phase meter, so they had planned to install a 3-phase inverter, but it turned out that we only have 2 phases connected (so that wouldn't work). We ended up having to split the panels between 2 single-phase inverters, which they agreed to do at no extra cost to us. Other than that, everything went well.

After using the solar system for a bit (the figures matched almost exactly what they'd told us to expect), and running some numbers, we decided to add a battery. We knew we wanted the Tesla powerwall, were happy with DQ's work earlier, and their quote was less than going through Tesla. The battery install was 100% smooth.
Show additional information

The right product specified and installed on time for a fair price.

The quoting process was informative and smooth. DQ Electrical had the right balance between showing interest in the sale without being pushy. The sales rep was interested in answering all questions in an easy to understand way particularly about 3 phase systems. The quote itself was clear and informative.
I decided to install optimizers on the northern facing panels. There was no pressure to do this, but the decision was made based on helpful information provided by DQ Electrical.
The installation happened on the day promised and the pre-work of approvals, etc. was professional and smooth. The installers took OH and safety seriously and communicated clearly while on site. They left no mess and provided clear instruction on how to use and monitor the system.
Grid connection went smoothly and we are getting good output from the system even during cloudy, winter days.
I would and do recommend DQ Electrical
