DQ Electrical Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

We are currently overseas, but the system is to be installed on May 22. We were also mutely delighted with all aspects. We were even more convinced when a friend in the know, who has been researching solar for years for the housing community he lives in, independently decided that DQ was the best company to work through for a major installation.
Thanks so much for the amazing service you provide, Finn and team at Solar Quotes.

Informative, Professional nothing too much trouble

Ben did the quoting he suggested change to our original request as that he thought would benefit us more (still quoted for both what we asked for and his suggestion so we could compare), really informative but not at all pushy.
Installation arranged the guys arrived on time, polite & professional not one piece of rubbish left behind - if you didn't look on roof you wouldn't have know they had been.
Change over meter organized by company (now we just have to wait for AGL who I am sure won't be as efficient as DQ)

Better quoted system than other installers offered for a similar price / installed as promised - no issues - overall good experience.

Sales person and their office was very helpful and polite - couldn't do enough to help.
The installation guys were great - on time / polite / knowledgeable and very helpful
Only waiting on the fitting of the smart meter by Origin which they have already organised for us - great.

A fairly difficult installation handled well by DQ

Quoting process was complicated due mainly to the size and layout of the system. I added a little to the the complexity by asking a long series of questions and doing a lot of research myself.
The installation was conducted very well considering that some 100 of the tiles on the roof cracked on contact. Purchase of replacement tiles was done by me the first time and the second time by the company. Punctuality was at times less than perfect . Installers were quite good about cleaning up.
As far as i know the system is running. DQ did well to get it in place before Christmas - that part was much appreciated.
I am also very appreciative of the honesty of the rep as he recommended not putting panels on the fragile tile roof. They managed to put up a 6 Kw system on the steel section of the roof.We will look at reroofing the tiles section in steel and then putting on more panels in the future.

Never too hot.

With a forecast temp of 42 degees, dq's team of 5 installers arrived early in the morning and completed the installation of 19 panels
before lunchtime.
A very efficient and very well coordinated team of electricians.
I cannot speak highly enough of their performance.

Sooooo happy we went with DQ!

I had my solar system installed recently with DQ Electrical and I am really pleased and impressed with the whole experience. Don was very professional and listened to my requirements (power usage, timing/scheduling, etc.). The price was very competitive for quality panels and inverter (I didn’t want anything cheap). I am renovating my home and nearing completion with finished flooring. The DQ Electrical installation team were polite, neat, careful and very considerate. If you’re reading this and thinking of installing solar I can’t recommend DQ high enough. I will also be telling my friends and family! Thanks again, Jabez. Show additional information

Great quality, installation and price.

I appreciated the offer to have one of their staff come to discuss my requirements, rather than just sending me quotes via email in the first instance. I knew my stuff but asked a lot of questions nonetheless, and was pleased with the information conveyed. I went for a premium system including the latest black PV panels. I haggled the price somewhat and was very pleased with the final cost given the size and quality of the system. The black panels with no bus bars visible actually look pretty cool on our large roof! And the system is running a treat. Really impressed how early in the morning it's generating substantial power. Installation was very professional and I couldn't have been more pleased. The customer service was very good. All round I can heartily recommend these guys. I could have bought a cheaper system but am very pleased I spent the money on high quality components.

Great guys to deal with! Thank you!

With so many solar installers around, it was really hard to choose a solar system within your budget. They offered so many diff. configurations with diff. brands of the solar panels and the batteries. With so many phone calls and research on the Internet, I felt so lucky to have DQ Electrical on board to consult and install the best system for my new home! The process wasn't easy as there were a few minor issues with my home existing electrical system. However, DQ team (Ben Ryan and the crews) have helped to sort them out promptly with very minimal cost! Their quality of the installation was also top-notch, neat and tidy. Definitely they are the best solar guys in Adelaide. Friendly and very easy to deal with! Show additional information

Installing process first rate

Installation was best part of experience . Fast efficient and polite . Took time to explain Show additional information
We decided to go with DQ Electrical as Donato Quattrocchi not only was a licensed electrician he also owned the company. He was a real gentleman and not a pushy salesman working on commission and seemed very down to earth and genuine. He knew what he was talking about and left us to make the decision without any pressure. Show additional information

Very professional organisation

Very professional organisation. Installers were excellent and end-product is as good as I had hoped for. Well done guys. Show additional information

Fantastic installing team.

Good quoting and professional follow up. Installing team were fantastic, very polite, courteous and extremely efficient. Only mix up was about installing the smart metre. Show additional information

Awesome from end to end

I found the whole process with Brian from DQ Electrical ‘unsalesy’, genuine and very helpful. They also gave very good advice compared to other providers I spoke with (which was about 7!).
There’s one thing being good at sales, but the installation was sincerely one of the most professional experiences. Nik was an absolute pleasure, respectful, organised and took his job and the process seriously with the entire installation team. He was such a nice guy too.
We installed the LG Neon 2 system as the product warranty was far superior (25 years product!) and I just couldn’t trust the other panel quality so decided it was worth the extra money so we have no worries for the next 25 years!
Thanks Brian and Nik and the team at DQ Electrical, I’ll be referring anyone without hesitation.

Great install & service

Sales & admin teams were very friendly and helpful. Ben was incredibly easy to deal with. Full of facts, and no pressue, helped me make a final decision on panel brand.

Install teams showed up on time as expected, and completed all work cleanly, and to a very high standard. Made an extra effort to get cables installed neatly in the cavity behind a hebel wall, which wasn't easy. Very polite fellas, followed all their health & safety processes, no corners cut, and cleaned up after themselves. Took the time to ensure the inverter was fully online, accounts added, and go through the shutdown / startup process.

Extremely happy with the communication and customer service from the whole company. I was never left wondering about what was happening next. Follow ups always happened as promised. DQ used technology very effictevely also, which was a major benefit in my view. Online invoicing & forms made getting final documentation signed a breeze. Their test array of demo panels was an impressive show of commitement to proving the products they recommend and sell.

Fantastic installer DQ Electrical

I knew DQ Electrical from one of my friends who got solar system installed by them. My house only have east and west facing roofs and no space on north, but the pool heating system occupies the west facing roof. Brian was very helpful and suggested a solution that splits the pool heating system onto both sides of the roof and installs solar panels on both sides at the same time. This is a wonderful solution and I managed to find another pool heating system technician to install the new pool solar heating system and have DQ Electrical to install solar panels afterwards. The installation was very professional and I am very happy with the solar output now. Actually I also found it's not that bad to install the solar panels on east and west facing roofs as it will start to generate power earlier than the panels on north facing roof.

A Rare Breed

It is not often that you deal with a company that delivers on its promises, quotes on time, installs on time, does so neatly and collaboratively, does a proper handover after commissioning and then leaves the place cleaner than they found it. We cannot recommend this company highly enough. DQ is certainly the benchmark. Show additional information

Professional job.

Simple and informative quoting and sales process.
Team turned up on time, and despite the warm weather completed the job without fuss. Very neat and tidy job.
Ran me through the monitoring system and inverter shutdown procedure.
Extremely happy with all facets of the installation.

Great Service

We did a lot of research before deciding to install solar at our town house in Kent Town. It can be a confusing process and there are a lot of “pop up” companies, which are here today and gone tomorrow.
Our first contact with DQ ELECTRICAL was by phone to Brian. Brian was a breath of fresh air, as he was both knowledgeable and personable. From accepting the quote to installation, the process was made simple with continual communication.
DQ ELECTRICAL installers are employed by the company and not sub contractors working for various other companies. The installers led by Reg went over and above to deliver a seamless experience.
It’s great to be supporting a Adelaide family owned business. A big thank you to Don, Brian, Reg, Damian, Michael, Josh and Joseph.

great installation & system

The Clipsal team have been great to deal with from first contact till after installation. The system looks great and works fantastic. The installation team were polite punctual and very professional. I would highly recommended Clipsal Solar for there knowledgeable staff and professional service Show additional information

Great Service. Excellent installation

The sales/quoting process was very informative and well explained. The installation went very smoothly considering a difficult installation on multi-story house involving the removal of existing redundant system. The installers were very polite and courteous and took the time to explain the agenda for the day at the beginning of the installation. The installation was very neat and all the redundant waste material was cleared from the site. The installer also connected the system to the home network so I am able to monitor the energy production throughout the day - which is very insightful in showing how well the system is currently operating. I'm very happy with the service and installation overall. Show additional information

Truly great experience, fantastic customer service

Ben from DQ was really good to work with, also after the sale was closed. The guys doing the installation were very well behaved, good community. We have rarely experienced such good interaction and service from any tradies, this was truly exceptional.
To top it off, the price was competitive, probably second best from the field of quotes we requested. (Actually, we did the ROI calculations based on the system’s estimated production for our location and roof orientations etc. and our family’s estimated day/night consumption pattern, and our new electricity retailer’s tariffs, and DQ’s proposed system and price came out best.)
Highly recommended.

I was pleased with my choice of solar installer following your provision of 3 installers in Adelaide. All gave me prompt responses and good prices, but DQ Electrical was not only the best price, but the most informative on how the system works and Don was able to answer the questions that I put to him about when the job could be done and what I could expect to save. He also showed me how to register to monitor the system and turning the Inverter on and off etc. I believe I made a very good choice of provider and would be happy to recommend the company to others.

Quality advice and service.

Very thorough and polite salesperson, who happily answered many questions before we decided, and who gave us different options. Considerations were discussed regarding our poor weather in winter being in Adelaide Hills. Looked carefully at our property in regard to positioning and shading, letting us know installer would possibly improve on placement, which they did. Installation was worked around roof repointing quite efficiently. Installation team was communicative, polite and efficient and discussed battery and two inverter location options. A very minor repair was required, which the owner personally and promptly communicated to us about. It was very quickly actioned and sorted. We have easily contacted staff who explained the monitoring system. The explanations and efficiency extended to the power network paperwork. We are now waiting on our power provider to upgrade to a smartmeter in the next few days. Show additional information

Great company

Barry was very positive in helping us to determine the best solution for our requirements but never pushed us into making a quick decision. He explained the plusses and minuses of each option and gave potential financial outcomes for each one to help us determine what really suited us and our budget and not the sales person (not like other vendors !).
Communication was very good and installation was on time and incident free with the crew being very professional and friendly, the site was left clean and tidy, they even helped remove birds who had been nesting in our roof.

Solar Panel installation

Here is a summary of my experience :

The installation team arrived on time
The Team Leader, Reg firstly introduced himself and the process to be followed
The team members were then progressively introduced to me
The installation seemed to run smoothly and efficiently
During the installation the Team Leader always had time to answer any questions and always handled my interruptions well
There was no mess left behind not like some tradesman I’ve used
The installation team all seemed to be “clean cut, approachable young men” something my generation always silently observes
The Team Leader ensured that before he left I was well updated on the next steps.

The whole process ran very well and I wouldn't hesitate recommending DQ Electrical to you

Quick service

DQ quickly gave me a quote. I chose them as they are approved retailers and installers by the Clean Energy Council AND had the best price for an inverter replacement. Installer came the next day and was friendly and efficient and easily got the system up and running. I'd recommend DQ! Show additional information

DQ Electrical for Solar 5 Stars

Sales and quote process was relaxed and informative with multiple solutions to meet our requirements. The first of many things that set DQ Electrical apart from their competition was Barry asking 'what do you want from a solar system'. Our needs were assessed before solutions were provided giving us confidence we got a system that suited needs.
Barry stripped away technical jargon and spoke in a way that was clear and relatable.

Installation day was no fuss and easy. Damien and his team were on time, courteous, clean, flexible and consultative. The location of the Inverter was discussed on the day, the panel layout was amended when the shade line on our roof was assessed.
At the end of installation Damien walked us through the operation of the Inverter, and ensured the Web Application was set up and working before he left.

Admin support from Lilia was excellent. She kept us informed of progress of the administration, installation etc. She made courtesy calls, not just emails, throughout the process.

Superb team

Fantastic service, came out and sat down with us and went through the quote in detail. The installation was superb. The boys even replaced broken roof tiles while they were up there. All and all these guys are the best at what they do. Highly recommended. Show additional information

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

A very happy DQ Electrical solar panel customer.

The sales and quoting process was great and I am happy with the total price.Very pleased with the installation of the solar panels.Friendly and polite young men who explained the process clearly and worked really hard,were punctual and cleared up afterwards.The grid connection has been organised and ready to go once my energy supplier has connected the meter. I’ve even been shown photos of the panels and they look good. All in all very happy with DQ Electrical. Show additional information

Excellent sales team and installers

Salesperson was a good fit for us and price competitive. Installers were punctual, tidy, polite and well behaved. A rare combination among any trade of home improvement professionals. Show additional information

Great service all the way through

Barry from DQ came out and recommended the system we have just had installed, he quantified our requirements clearly and concisely. We obtained 3 quotes, one from Origin and another from an other reparable SA solar company. Origin would only quote a system that insured that they would still be able to send as bill each quarter and the other provider went way out the other side of the ledger, with a system that was over-kill and more expensive. My wife and I found the sales process simple, pressure-free and friendly. Even the new meter installation order was placed prior to installation; full advantage of our new system two days after installation.

The team that attended our home were excellent, very happy with the job and the extra service, getting the monitoring setup and tidying up, without being asked, the ground rod earth wire, all-in-all great service.
