Essential Energy Solutions Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

We follow up with all reviewers after 12 months to see how their system is going since it was installed. These are all the reviewers who have responded to our 1 year follow up:
Overall excellent experience with essential energy! Show additional information
Installed on time and efficiently. Had a problem with some broken tiles but team came back and replaced with tiles I sourced. System is working as expected. Show additional information
Essential Energy Solutions were on time through every stage of the process. Dale arrived on time for his appointment, explained everything to us so we understood exactly how it all worked. A quote was given there and then. There was no obligation or pressure to sign up then and there but we decided to get the ball rolling which it did very efficiently.
From the Ladies in the office to the Tradesmen they were all very friendly and helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.
I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Essential Energy Solutions, they were a pleasure to deal with.

Essential Energy Solutions installation team arrived to site at the date and time agreed. The solar panel installation team worked professionally with no major issues, further the electric wiring and solar inverter installation team finished the works, including setting the internet connection for the inverter. All works done on the same day. Show additional information
The information provided through the year of research and experience you have poured into your website equipped us with the knowledge to begin the process of solar installation. Both companies you recommended were completely open, honest and perfectly in line with the direction your website provides. I have and will happily refer both to everyone. Show additional information
Essential Energy Solutions were great to deal with.
I had a a Solar System already installed by another company that their customer service was lacking and found them arrogant to deal with after I had the system installed and paid for.
My system is using Enphase Micro Inverters and the Enlighten software, the previous company did not set my access to see individual panel performance, neither did they lay out the panels in the monitoring software to how they were laid out in the house, and were unwilling to change this.

So I when I added more panels (11 in total) I went with Essential Energy Solutions, not only did they give me a great price on LG Neon 2 Black panels, but also took over the software, laid out the panels to how they are on my house in the Enlighten monitoring software, but also gave me panel level monitoring, all inclusive.

Nothing was an issue for them, and although there were some install issues, that were not I believe their fault, there was no fuss in them sorting this out and no pressure.

Highly recommended giving them a go!

Being installed on 10 May Show additional information
The team arrived when they said they would, then finished the job carefully cheerfully and always let us know what was happening. We did have a small problem getting the Fronius to link reliably with our WiFi. The foreman gave us his mobile and we worked through it over the next few days - settled with our purchase of a WiFi Extender. We are now waiting for Origin to install our Smart Meter to complete it all. Show additional information

Your web site and education made a huge difference. Being able to ask the appropriate questions(and understanding their answers!!) made the whole process much better. Show additional information

Our system was installed a week after accepting their quote, due to adjustments to other jobs and was performed expertly.
It has been fitted to a Decramastic roof which many will avoid and there does not appear to be any damage. We have had enough rain since to test the result.
Family members are involved at all levels and ready to answer any inquiry.

Waiting for the meter change is the only irritating part of the whole project (quoted to be within 30 working days from application!)

Not one to write reviews I took the time because I was so impressed with this company.
I found this company easy to deal with and they promptly answered my questions and concerns.
The installation team arrived when they said they would, the installation was fast and very efficient.
They explained it’s use and left everything clean and all rubbish was removed and nothing was damaged in the process.
It was so refreshing to deal with a truly professional company not full of BS.
I would highly recommend this company if you want a professional solar installation.

We would highly recommend Matt and his team at Essential Energy Solutions for their service, professionalism and knowledge. Before and after installation Matt has been available to talk through any concerns or queries we had and has followed us up after installation to make sure our solar system is operating well and to give us an opportunity to discuss anything. Also, a big thank you to Finn and the Website for solar information which we used to educate ourselves on the benefits of solar and for giving us the security of contacting recommended solar companies.

The Installation, sales and customer service team at Essential Energy are all excellent. I have been extremely happy with my experience. Show additional information
I'd certainly recommend Essential Energy Solutions; they are diligent, professional and experts in their field. Show additional information
Genuine salesperson who provide a quality system at affordable price. Was able to beat first quote with exact product by $4000 but suggested a more suitable system at a realistic price. Hassle free installation with good customer query backup. Show additional information
After a few quotes it came down to these guys and another, based on price and suggested systems. I got a rep to come over to confirm the online quote and was happy enough to continue. It was slightly cheaper than the other quote, but the other system was of higher quality (warranty) . In the end I felt that this was good enough for us.

In the end the installation got put back due to import/ supply issues, and while we were kept informed there were delays, it was essentially "too bad, so sad"!

In the end the experience wasn't too bad, but it was perfect enough for us to not still plan to go to the market when we plan to upgrade to batteries in the years to come.

Essential Energy Sollutions were fantastic to deal with. There was no pushy salesman tactics, and they use good quality products at a price that is fair. Sarah was great to deal with and listened to what I needed, and quoted on a system that perfectly suited my families energy consumption and budget. Matt and the boys did a very neat and tidy job installing the system and answered any of the questions I had. So far very happy, system made 35 kWh yesterday. Fronius Symo 5kw inverter. 20 × REC panels. Show additional information
Will install in second week of December Show additional information
Excellent all around! Great people, great advice and great install and customer service. Dale, Sarah, Brad and the install team have provided a top shelf experience. Couldn't be happier with result.
Have had Fronius Primo 5Kw + 24 x Jinko MaXim 265w panels for 3 months in N/NW and a couple in W orientation and it's already punching out 40kWh a few weeks before the end of Spring! Looks like the MX sorts shading and the Fronius WiFi and reporting is excellent.
