I received a quote from Essential Solar through the website after chasing up quotes from other retailers who were less than satisfactory.

By contrast, Essential Solar was fantastic from the initial quote right through to the time when the system was up and running. They gave us feedback and advice right through the process and were extremely helpful with advising us what to do and how to achieve best results. All the necessary paperwork was done and provided making the application for the Victorian Solar Rebate a breeze as well.

I cannot recommend them highly enough, especially in their customer service and technical advice.

Fantastic company. The sales guy was very patient and spent a lot of time and gave me some very good advice. The customer service team have been absolutely great, and their communication is top notch. The installers arrived on time and did a very professional job. They noted a missing portion of flashing that my builder had overlooked. Since the install the customer service team have been in regular contact with me, making sure the system is operating correctly and all paperwork supplied. I have to say the after sales support has been great. I highly recommend this company. They are honest, use quality installers, hire excellent staff and take pride in what they do. I couldnt ask for a better experience. Show additional information

Solarquotes made at least choosing a company from the many out there a lot easier.
The independant quotes I got from a well reviewed solar company ended up being similar/more than the 2 companies recommended by Solar Quotes
There are a lot of cheaper companies I noticed during my research that I could of potentially gone with, so definately didn't get a bargain on our price, but it seems like the reputable companies which provide the brand name panels and systems know they can charge all.
All confusing, as they each sell their own preferred brand and system, so even with 4 quotes, direct comparisons weren't really that easier to be made.
At least Solarquotes gave me some background knowledge to tackle the process.
Having system installed in the next 2 days, so fingers crossed it goes as planned

I cannot speak highly enough of Essential Solar from my first phone call, consultation, installation and all the advise we received. Show additional information
I am still not sure whether $8000 is over priced for a 5kw system. Show additional information
The consultant came to my home to inspect and prepared a cost effective quality solution that matched our budget. Show additional information

Essential Solar have far surpassed my exceptions for our solar panel installation. The salesperson was great; the installers were excellent - on time, friendly, efficient and didn't leave any mess; and to top it off the after-sales service has been amazing - from general info to grid connection. For a great experience from start to finish you can't go past Essential Solar - thanks guys! Show additional information

Vincent was fantastic, no nonsense, no fake sales tactics, wasnt pushy or anything just straight to the point. The whole process was really well communicated from the whole team at Essential Solar, installation itself was done in about 4 hours and the installers were really professional. Our system is running perfectly and we are already seeing the benefits.
Highly recommended all round.

I was quite apprehensive going in to the process, having heard many stories of con-men and cowboys. Essential Solar proved to be the opposite of all the bad stories. Firoz was knowledgeable and helpful when quoting; he was attentive without being pushy during the time that I was consifering his quote; once I had initiated the process everything was extremely smooth and efficiently delivered from the plans to the actual installation day to the paperwork required following the installation. I now have a system on my roof delivering significant savings to my electricity bill. I highly recommend this company. Show additional information
After requesting quotes on Solar Quotes, Essential solar was the only company to actually organise to come to my place to physically have a look at the roof,etc and advice of a system appropriate to my needs. Ray Bout, the sale technician explained everything in regards to the system and answered all my questions. The reason i went with Essential solar is not because they were the cheapest, they were actually the more expensive of the 3 quotes i have received, however i chose them because of their great customer service, taking time to actually come to me, the after installation service which will be provided and all the warranties on the system. Installation went smoothly by Cathal and his team. not to mention the ladies at the office were amazing, Jess, Hayley, Janelle were all fantastic. always ready to answer all my question on the phone and email.
I highly recommend Essential Solar for your Solar need as my experience with them went very smooth and quite quick.

Patient caring and knowledgeable company with a quality product. Show additional information
This is the second time I have had solar panels installed, So I knew a bit about what goes on. essential solar may not be the cheapest, but you have to take into consideration, what you are getting in regards to the service you will receive. Thanks to solar quotes, I settled for Essential Solar, they told me my panels would be on my roof in 4 weeks and they were. the Install was well done, and the guys were great. And at the end of the day, with the new government rebate, my cost will come down. And you also get a six month check up. Show additional information

Everything about this company was excellent. Right from my first inquiry to getting the sales person out, then the electrician and then the installation. Nothing was too difficult for them.
All first class. Highly recommended

Went with Essential Solar. I really liked their sales guy and the quality of product they offered. Certainly weren’t the cheapest but felt over the long haul it would be worth it.

Bit disappointed they didn’t have stock at the time of putting down my deposit so can’t yet comment on the installation process.

Paul the sales rep was very friendly and informative without being pushy. He provided all the information we asked for and gave us time to think things over before we went ahead.

The installation was very quick and seamless and so far the system is working very well.

We are looking forward to our next electricity bill to see the savings, as well as doing our bit to reduce our carbon footprint.

Essential Solar office staff have been exceptional in their assistance and support. As a cynical older person, regarding the deterioration of the standard of many things in society, I was greatly impressed by their courtesy, knowledge and a genuine enjoyment of their work.

Overall my experience with Essential Solar has been very quick and easy. The girls in the office were very efficient. The installers did a fantastic job, Made things very easy throughout the whole process of having my solar installed. I highly recommend Essential Solar for anyone who is keen on installing Solar at their home Show additional information
I chose to go with Essential Solar due to their customer service and relations. All the other quotes I got when looking for a solar system were all online and provided via email. Essential Solar took the time to come out and go through the process, checked all the required onsite positioning of the panels & inverter. This gave me piece of mind that there weren't any hidden costs. The after install support and service has been fantastic and I'm glad I went with Essential Solar. They have provided me with all the required paperwork for the Victorian Solar Rebate without having to ask for it. It was clearly labeled and organised which made the process simple.

It has been a good experience overall with essential solar from Ray, the salesperson, to the admin, customer service and the installers. Can't fault the job they have done with my solar system- I was extremely happy with the outcome. The after sales is magnificent, Hayley, Jannelle and Jessica -are the best as they always get back to my queries immediately with crystal clear explanation. Will definitely recommend essential solar with my colleagues. Show additional information
Essential Solar were great to deal with. Beginning with the initial quote through to completion of installation they provided a clear plan and followed it. The installation was very fast and professionally completed in a day. The regulatory approvals were all well handled by the Essential Solar team. The remote monitoring is excellent and meets our needs. Show additional information
