Expert Electrical Solar Reviews

decent quality product

sales process was accurate. Installation went well. Good customer service Show additional information

Quietly Efficient

I made what I now know to be a mistake when I responded to ‘on-line’ advertisements that ‘pop-up’ everywhere! They bugged me so much while I was waiting over Christmas for responses from my SolarQuotes requested quotes. Long story short I signed up with ‘Expert Electrical’ who actually visited my home (only one to do so) to assess my needs and house layout. That meant a lot! Written quotes followed, a decision was arrived at during a visit to their establishment, agreement signed there and then Three weeks later we had Generation. The two fitters where brilliant, no fuss straight into it, they both knew their job so well. All done and dusted by noon, with the record of generation on my device I could see we had made the the right choice. Thank you Ben, Caleb & Joran. Show additional information

Fantastic installers - Great System!

Great company - unlike other providers they came out personally to provide a quote. Andrew was ridiculously knowledgeable and explained everything so we knew exactly what to expect. Great communication from Joran who went above and beyond to schedule the install around extended wet weather. Ended up sending staff to Brisbane to fit us in on the weekend. Caleb and Deonte were on site first thing, were finished by lunchtime and did a great job. Everything was explained to us throughout the process and Megan made the whole thing easy and stress free. I would definitely recommend these guys, they were great. Five Stars ***** Show additional information

Quality product with great warranty

Not installed yet, but it is going in this week.
The explain and site assessment and email communication since had been good though

Excellent installation

The sales process was painless We felt comfortable with the sales person which is why we decided to accept the quote even though it was the only one we got.
The installation was scheduled in a timely manner. The installer arrived on time, was very professional, helpful and informative.He organised the grid connection immediately.
Upto this point we were impressed by the customer service. Their post sale customer service changed because we did not pay our account immediately. It took 9 days and 3 invoices to receive an accurate invoice which I paid immediately!

Jack from Expert Electrical was very professional and and very knowledgeable

Ben from the company was very knowledgeable and helpful.The only quote I got that was professional.The installation was a very professional and to be honest was a great experience.The only down size for me was I had nbn fitted after this was set up and to change the router was a lot more complicated than it should be. The Expert Electrical office was not much use so little disappointed there. Show additional information

Highly recommended & purchase with confidence.

From the sales/ quoting process to the install & commissioning it's a big thumbs up for Expert Electrical, highly recommended.
Dave McKone who dealt with the quotation process was very knowledgeable and understood our original brief far better than any of the competitors who participated in the initial round of quotes. He was very good in explaining the system on offer and the options available to us in layman terms rather than give a one-size fits all approach, which we liked. He was also very patient in explaining a lot of the technical issues. The pricing for the panels & inverter also appeared very competitive compared to the equivalents out in the market. Chris and Jack the installers did an excellent job on site, in rather trying conditions under a hot Queensland sun. Again, I have nothing but praise for their work. They were also very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining technical questions on how the solar set-up works.

First class.

Good company to deal with from original quotation from Dave, the communication from admin and the installers Jack and Chris did an excellent job. Jack and Chris were punctual, friendly and knowledgeable. Their attention to detail outstanding. They both worked hard all day starting early and not stopping until the job was done. Would highly recommend these guys. Show additional information

Jack and Chris worked wonderfully in the installation processes. A big thank you.

Solar Install - No Worries

Expert Electrical were great with their service and quality of work from the quoting process to the actual install and also organising the Energex meter work. They also made themselves available over the xmas break to help out with our solar portal login. Before any work was started the installers walked through the entire solution including solar panel placement , inverter placement and where the conduit will be run. After the install was complete they guided me through the whole solution, including the SMA portal, stop/start procedures of the system, maintenance, operations, etc... Show additional information

great product bad sales strategy

Good panels and good inverter. The sales guy was good with his product knowledge but bad mouthed my existing system for a solid 2 minutes before I had to tell him to stop. Show additional information

Great 1st solar purchase experience

Great quoting process, very factual and honest with good examples of similar type installations in the area. A visit to the office was pleasant in a relaxed environment with warm and friendly staff.
The installer was very professional, punctual and efficient, and receptive to questions about the system and install process.
Extremely happy with the system performance post install.
Would definitely recommend Expert Electrical!

Great Customer experience from beginning to end.

It is seldolm deliveey out shines the pre sales. My experience has been that with Caleb and the team. Nothing was too much trouble. Issues were methodically addressed with a great customer focus. They delivered a quality product ontime. Thanks to Scott for designing the system which met my needs and to Meagan for the streamlined invoice payment and presales conversations. You have one very happy customer. Show additional information

Expert Electrical were awesome!

After dealing with MANY "salesmen" pushing me all sorts of systems, it was a joy to deal with Expert Electrical. Dave was an absolute wealth of knowledge and at no point gave me the "hard sell" like the others. Within just a couple of calls, I was confident that Expert Electrical had the quality product that I was after and the installation team to do the job right. I was not disappointed. I can't recommend Expert Electrical highly enough. I must say a big thanks to SOLARQUOTES too, for without this service I would probably still be traversing the horrible 'solar installation minefield' that's out there. Show additional information

Excellent in every way - Highly recommended

Excellent salesperson who was both knowledgeable and helpful. Installation was on time, tidy and professional. Show additional information
Ben was over the top at first but settled into a really kind understanding person.
Jack who installed the system worked tirelessly on his own in temperatures that would have normally stopped most people.
He was extremely kind and tidy.
Ben followed up with which was kind.
I'm afraid I have forgotten the name of the young lass in the office BUT SO HELPFUL many follow up calls and plenty of information given.


The other company's sale people were also good.

Great to deal with!

Quoting process was great - we had two consultants visit us in person when others only quoted over the phone or email. They took the time to answer our questions and welcomed us to visit their premises. Fast and professional installation, no mess left behind. Easy to deal with and would highly recommend! Show additional information

Expert Installation

Expert Electrical were prompt in responding to a request for a quote. Dave, the Expert Electrical Energy Consultant who visited us, supplied us with a wealth of information and was able to explain the differences in everyday language between the three choices of systems being offered according to their quality, output and warranty. Dave was also very helpful in following up any queries I had. Expert Electrical were also very patient with me requiring well over 6 weeks to get Body Corporate permission to proceed with the install.

Megan, the Office Manager, was quick to supply all relevant paperwork and responded same day always answering queries and providing installation confirmation details. Also helped to organise and made sure the grid connection afterwards went through very quickly.
Gordon aka "Frank" the installer did an amazing job on the installation day working out in the 36 degree plus heat on the roof for almost 11 hours! He was polite and arrived on time and cleaned up the work place well.

All up, a very professional team, very happy with the price for a high quality system and would not hesitate in recommending the team at Expert Electrical to others.
Very satisfied customer

Fantastic Installer

Jack did such a great job with our installation. Friendly and polite, was a pleasure to have such a hard working and committed installer. Neat and tidy, the work he did looks amazing! Communicated to us through the whole process. Recommend to anyone looking to get solar. The salesman Dave is very informative and knows his stuff! Made choosing to go with expert electrical a no brainer. Great work guys!! Very happy with the outcome :-) Show additional information

First class tradesman, knowledge and components...

Hands down the best company i have spoken to re off grid stand alone systems. Ben and Scott left other quotes for dead with advice ,specs and communication. Other companies stalled and had to call or email me back with my enquiries but these guys know their stuff and are very concise. Install was fantastic with the boys staying at our property. Great comms the whole process. My expectations were high however they were more than exceeded. EE really went above and beyond and offer so much more including complete off grid one stop shop set ups including switchboard, lights and powerpoints which I believe is unique. All products top notch with best warranties on market (SMA, Solarwatt/BYD)
If youre on the land in regional Australia and they are willing to come to your area Expert Electrical should be your first phone call.

Couldn't be happier with the process from start to finish...and it was over 12 months from initial quote as we wanted a sleek black look using top quality German SolarWatt panels [glass] which were unavailable in Australia. We did get 3 quotes [using other panels] but we had done our research and decided on Scott from Expert Electrical who made darn sure he would obtain these panels for us. Scott from the Hobart side of things was brilliant; very nice guy; upfront and honest and knew his stuff - if he was stumped on something he would call Ben at the Qld office and get his opinion.We had lots of questions as we wanted to get the best in place for future battery addition. A very trustworthy and knowledgeable team, right down to the office ladies. Expert Electrical ordered the panels from Germany and it was earlier this year when they arrived; we had to delay for a few months due to commitments, but Scott held the price and STC rebates until we were ready. Installation was mid September, Aurora Energy came today [Oct17th] to swap over to the smart meter and we've been running at around 8.26kw since initial turn on.Very pleased. We ended up with panels on N, E & W orientation to capture early morning and late afternoon sun...luckily we have a house with all orientations:). We are on the East Coast of Tasmania and do get heaps of sun. The installation itself was done by David at Southern Beaches Electrical and his team,who work with Scott - a very professional, precise and quick installation. David also did some additional electrical work for us which was great as it's hard to get good tradies out here; we wholeheartedly recommend them.
All in all, don't waste your time with others here in Tasmania, go with Scott and Expert Electrical.

Why I used Expert Electrical

The reasons I chose Expert Electrical in comparison to 4 others:
Probably the best-informed salesperson with plenty of technical knowledge and readily available.
Had the ability to offer multiple system types with different component suppliers.
Ultimately offered a very competitive price.

Smooth installation and happy with the result.

I got 9.7KW of panels with 2x5KW inverters and a Sunny Home Manager from Expert Electrical in Hobart. I got slightly different two quotes from two installers and this one was cheaper and higher quality parts (according to the Solarquotes chart) per KW of panels. My North and West roof faces are a bit weird and the other quote I got didn't seem to want to deal with it without a premium. I also got a Sunny home manager lets you see your power usage in real time and if your importing or exporting from the grid which is cool.

Overall process was smooth and easy. Ben gave me a call and came around within 48hrs of requesting quotes on solarquotes to discuss options. Installation of panels was about three weeks after signing the contract and took a day by David and his guys. I was home when the electrical inspector came to check on the work and he said they did a really good quality job which was good to hear. Only negative I would say is a couple of emails took a second one before I got a reply (which is why they lost a star with customer service, would have done 4.5 if it was an option) but generally they were prompt in responding.

Overall the process was good and very happy with the system I now have in place. Based on my experience I would recommend them to friends or family if they asked.

Great product and helpful team !

Expert electrical seemed the most honest and down to earth of all the other companies we got quotes off. The solar system we were sold is an excellent system and value for money.
I would only mark them down a little with the installation due to tidiness and small issues but all of these were dealt with in the end in a professional manner

Professional installation

Really professional and did a great job with the installation. The company was easy to deal with and very professional to deal with. The installers were really great. Scared me seeing them carry the panels up such a tall ladder, and work on such a tall roof. They were very brave! Show additional information
From the very first day Megan has been a great contact. She follows up to see how things are and isn't pushy at all.
Scott drove out to see me and was very warm and friendly also. Looking forward to the installation ????

Smooth process

Great communication from start to finish. Dave was very helpful and quick to reply to my emails. Jack and Chris showed up right on time on the day of the install and did a quick job without any hassle. Thanks to everyone at Expert Electrical! Total cost includes a smart energy meter which makes local monitoring fantastic and works perfectly! It's another story for their online tools and web services that are quite glitchy. SMA definitely needs to fix all the bugs on their SunnyPlaces/SunnyPortal. Time will tell. Show additional information

Wonderful!!!

I could not recommend Expert Electrical highly enough. Scott and the team were incredibly helpful. After speaking with multiple suppliers prior to Scott, it was clear that they were the real deal and not just salesmen. This was emphasised throughout the whole installation process. I recommend them to everyone I know. Not only were they wonderful to deal with throughout the entire process, but they gave very reasonable and competitive pricing for high quality panels and inverter. Show additional information

Quality green power - our little bit to help save the world!

We received contact from two of three Solarquotes installers. We generally knew what we wanted and that was a quality product (to help save the world).

The quote I dismissed was effectively their way or the highway, cookie-cutter approach to cost cutting. Previous to an initial meeting with the salesman from Expert Electrical, the administration section ensured my initial queries about what we wanted were enlightened by Expert Electrical experience and installation/product/performance warranty (including extended warranty) obligations/coverage; more research material!

The sales representative was professional and well versed in their offering as time went on the REC panels became more powerful (delivery/supply issues) for the same quoted price. The installation went as advised 0700 to 1600 hrs, two of them going no stop and working very well together. I had a WiFi setup issue that I wanted resolved and I was able to dig into that with system setup access and it is now how I want it.

Basically we have two SMA inverters each with the own WiFi hotspot which was degrading (clobbering the local electromagnetic spectrum) network connectivity to the system and I did not want a cabled Ethernet with switch adding to complexity (and coastal corrosion issues). Expert Electrical will drop in to make an adjustment to my how water switch so that it starts when we receive green power and not at 0600hrs.

EE are knowledgeable, passionate about solar, very keen to maintain their reputation for great customer service and were more than pleased to answer my many questions. There were no surprises for us as EE explained in detail the process from quote acceptance to the final approval and meter installation by our electricity retailer (Energy Australia). They assisted us to decide between a number of technical options which helped us to avoid a few unnecessary add-ons and "enhancements". Our high-quality PV installation has long performance, product and installation warrantees. Overall, it was a hassle free and seamless process start to end. Highly recommended.

These guys were really easy to deal with and help point my in the right direction with financing. I asked a tonne of questions and they were super helpful. I ended up with a fantastic system that is performing well. Show additional information
Each company has their preferred product which they will push ( generally the inverter).
So it's hard to compare systems unless you do your research.
In the end I asked each company to quote on the same inverter and panels and system size.
Which really showed some pretty big differences in price.
As all the companies where vetted by Solar Quotes I 'm confident the the installers I've picked will do a good job.
Show additional information
They were prompt and flexible arranging a quote, had a very competitive price, and have put in the extra effort to get all the accreditations and partnerships with their main suppliers. The extended warranties from SMA and REC from being partner resellers are significant. The installation is pretty good, possibly could've used a nicer backing plate or a bit of touch up paint. The hardware and workmanship is great, one panel moved from the proposed layout, and possibly a tiny bit close to one of my eaves shadowing, but I'll be watching the power profile to see if it has any noticeable effect, so far so good. Turnaround from quote to install was 8 days which was very impressive, all the Energex applications were super fast, I was barely off the phone with them from confirming the quote and was getting SMS's saying the application was done. Same with finished install, same day all applications in. Great Experience and local team with good communication. Show additional information
