G Solar ..a professional/trustworthy outfit

G-Solar was recommended to me by a TAFE plumber teacher friend who had used them to install a solar system at his own home & who was very happy with the work carried out & the system installed. I too in turn am now delighted with my new 6.6 KW solar system, Fronius inverter & Trima panels. G-Solar were excellent in regards to their clear & informative communications with me from the Initial inspection on site at my home to the installation day & making sure everything was working perfectly & explaining all that i needed to know. G Solar made it a total breeze for me.What I also appreciated was thst they didn't do an over sell, not at one time did I feel pressure to purchase any additional equipment./add ons .but I did choose to pay extra to have my dodgy old switchboard with old ceramic fuses upgraded to a modern safer one which I'm so pleased I did! I highly recommend G-Solar .a local & very professional company with trust worthy great staff , offering quality systems at an affordable fair price.. so glad I went with them!

I recently had G-Solar install a solar system at my house, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From start to finish, their team was courteous and professional.

Installation was very smooth workers were polite tidy and on time.
Customer service was of a very high standard and all apps and systems were installed and working before G-Solar left the property.
I would highly recommend this company as they have very good work ethics and have been willing to answer any questions that we have had since the installation of the two systems. Solar as well as a tesla battery.

Friendly and helpfull

Out of the three Solar companies I approach G Solar were the most affordable and explained the system very clearly and did not have the full sales pitch that some other companies had. When it was time to do the installation the installers did an excelent job, were neat and tidy and explained the system and how to navigate app.

I would and have recormended G Solar as a preferred Solar Installer.

Highly Recommended

From initial site visit to post installation follow-up call, G-Solar has provided a professional, informative, efficient and friendly service. Our quote, which included various options, was delivered in a timely fashion and accompanied by all relevant information. Installation was booked at a time that suited us and occurred as scheduled. Installers, Josh and Alex worked efficiently and tidily on the day and gave an overview of the hardware and online monitoring system before leaving our property. Office staff, Kristina and Suze were always great to deal with and happy to answer all our questions and queries. Based on our experience, we would highly recommend G-Solar and Electrical.

Profesional and quality workmanship

I can't fault the experience I had with G-Solar from the first enquiry call to the installation and then post installation follow up. During his site visit, Grant answered all of my questions and gave me a great overview of my options without being pushy and salesy. The online quote came through within 24 hours with a good amount of information to assist me in making my decision. I had received a couple of other quotes which were around the same price but the warranties and peace of mind that G-Solar have their business here in Cairns, plus their customer service sealed the deal for me. I was kept informed along each step of the process and the team did an amazing job including the clean-up afterwards. Overall, a fantastic experience from beginning to end, happy to recommend G-Solar to anybody.

Great customer service & efficient on installation day

Couldn't fault G-Solar!
Grant came by to give a quote and do a quick site inspection, he was professional, knowledgeable and honest! The quote was ready within a few hours and I was able to book in straight away. He was able to answer all questions accurately and gave his best recommendations.
G-Solar arranged everything from then on, I only had to fill out a few online forms! The whole process was so smooth and uncomplicated.
On installation day the boys were on time, professional and didn’t affect my day at all. They were so efficient - the solar was installed just after lunch and ready to be used!

Very happy with the whole process.

Excellent Product- Exceptional service

From start to finish the service has been unbelievable. Everything involved was explained to us in great detail our customer service rep was open to all our questions and helped us to understand the benefits of complimenting our existing system. The installation went smoothly despite the challenging weather conditions. Every member of staff we have been in contact with has been professional and supportive. For a quality product from a professional team at a competitive price you can’t go past G-Solar.

Fantastic Service !

Had solar installed by G Solar, from the very first contact to installation I can not fault the service. I had a very long chat with Grant about which system was right for me and his views were spot on. The team arrived to complete the install and were a great bunch of lads and a credit to the company, professional and friendly.
If you want Solar this is the company to use ! I will always use G Solar for any future installs and checks should the need arise ! Fantastic service and customer care !

Faultless installation

The quote was based on an informative discussion and in some instances was to the installers detriment.Very honest opinions.
The installation went smoothly. They arrived at the time they said they would. They removed any packaging and kept everything tidy and made good any work underground better than expected.
At all times the guys explained what stage they were at. Our instal was over two days so the second days work was explained and on completion all units were explains thoroughly. The hook up was handled by Gsolar and all is good. I highly recommend them.

The G-Solar Team are all on the same page!

Right from the get go when we met with the owner to organise the quote, we were impressed with the professional, no BS approach to business. Fully professional, on time, and properly organised, everything went to plan. The install was timely, clean & tidy. The handover was appreciated, with subsequent assistance to get our product registered ... all in all; 0 out of ten. Would highly recommend anyone wanting to step into the solar space, get a quote from G-Solar, you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic!

I received the quote very promptly, it was clear and very informative.
I had a few questions, regarding the battery setup as well, Mark called me and explained everything.
Once I decided to go ahead, the installation process was easy.
The boys turned up exactly when they were meant to, and I received a text message in the morning as well.
The customer service was fantastic, from the initial contact, through to installation and post installation as well.

Excellent Service, Great Follow Up Service

From the outset the team at G Solar were exceptional, when Grant came to our home, he provided advice in a no pressure way and advised exactly what was needed. We received a quote as promised and true to their word they only contacted us to confirm we received the quote, at no stage was there any pressure to buy or nuisance phone calls like we have experienced with other providers.
The installation went very well, the team on the day explained everything, were respectful of our property and cleaned up afterwards. They had an issue on the day where they had a problem fitting all the panels in as per the drawing, however they consulted with me and came up with a plan we were happy with.
After sales service has been incredible, I am not knowledgeable at all about this and a couple of times I have emailed Grant asking for help with connecting our new modem to the unit and helping reconnect when it lost connection and without any question he has come around and sorted it out.
You will not be disappointed.

Outstanding Solar Experience

Outstanding Solar Experience with G Solar in Cairns!

After months of research and countless sales pitches from various solar companies, we finally decided to go with G Solar for our solar electricity system, and it was undeniably the best decision we made! From start to finish, the entire process was seamless and hassle-free.

The personalized quote process with G Solar was refreshingly easy. Grant, our contact at G Solar, was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, taking the time to explain every aspect of the system clearly and thoroughly. His responsiveness and willingness to address all our questions made the decision-making process a breeze.

The documentation provided by G Solar was well-organized and easy to understand, leaving no room for confusion. The installation itself was completed in just one day by a team of professionals who exhibited top-notch craftsmanship. Not only did they complete the job efficiently, but they also left absolutely no mess behind, which was truly impressive.

Since the installation, our solar system has been nothing short of amazing. The app provided by G Solar works seamlessly, allowing us to monitor our energy production and consumption effortlessly. Furthermore, the after-sale communication from G Solar has been exemplary, demonstrating their commitment to customer satisfaction.

What's more, G Solar's quote wasn't the most expensive we received, yet the quality of their service and products far exceeded our expectations.

In conclusion, we wholeheartedly recommend G Solar to anyone in Cairns looking for a reliable and trustworthy solar provider. Thank you, G Solar, for an outstanding experience and for helping us harness the power of solar energy!

Excellent system, great service

The G-Solar team was brilliant from start to finish. The team knowledge and guidance around the system options and installation at our slightly unusual set-up was excellent and they were always happy to answer all questions. Constant communication from the team regarding all aspects of the job which gives great peace of mind.

A great experience with G-Solar

We had a seamless and transparent process from the start.
G-Solar sent us 3 comparison quotes for various sizes.
We decided on the 10.7 kwh paid a deposit to lock in the Qld rebate and installation was scheduled in February 2024.
From all accounts the system seems to be working as it should.
Our property manager keeps us informed on progress to date.
The installation went well with very little disruption to the household.
Overall, we are happy - we were sent all the information from the installation and compliance form the Qld Energy authority.
The rebate was very good and the bigger system generates excess power back to the grid.

Very satisfied with the whole outcome and detail that G-Solar provided.

Regards,

Everything was easy and smooth from the quoting down to the install, The guys on-site were friendly and easy do deal with, they did a very neat install and left the areas clean and tidy at the end of the day.

Wonderful local company

Everything to do with our solar experience was super easy, they were really helpful quoting on a few systems but actually explaining the differences between the one's they had quoted, taking the time to help me understand and make the best choice for our family. The install (although it was delayed once thanks to a cyclone) was effortlessly rescheduled and then installed to a very high standard. The App is great and the price was very resonable. Thanks again!

Fantastic & Professional Installer!

5 STARS!! Super impressed by the job, efficient & communicative. Thank you guys, couldn't be more than happy with the system.

Great communication, quality installation and value for money. Highly recommended.

From the very first interaction to the final installation of our Powerwall, Grant and the team were professional, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile to help me understand the options and process. When on-site they spent time to understand our power usage and what circuits needed to be backed-up in the case of a power outage, and then configured the system to match these requirements.

Having dealt with many solar installations and many solar companies in the past, this is by far the best experience I have had. No oversell, no salesman and real qualified and experienced electricians delivering a high-quality installation.

And unlike 99% of electricians, I have dealt with in the past, they even cleaned-up the job site before leaving, what more could you ask for.

I would highly recommend G-Solar.

Total professionals from start to finish.

Throughout the years, I’ve requested many quotes for solar installation, but unfortunately, distinguishing facts from sales tactics was extremely challenging.

Luckily, I stumbled upon an amazing website called Solar Quotes. Rather than selling products, the principal aim of this website is to empower individuals by providing them with the information to make informed product decisions.

Once I understood the key elements of a solar system, I felt ready to ask for three quotes from this website. Out of the quotes I received from three companies, G-Solar clearly stood out as the most impressive on various levels.

What initially caught my attention was the option of meeting up at G-Solar’s office for coffee instead of having someone come to my house. It was a fantastic opportunity to observe G-Solars’ professional set up and connect with their staff members.

The process, from the initial office visit to Grant Newman’s site visit, was flawless and effortless, offering a range of product options from entry level to top end and complete installation.

After accepting the quote, G-Solar managed all the paperwork needed by Ergon and organised the installation date.

The installation process showcased G-Solar professionals’ expertise. The team meticulously paid attention to every little detail to ensure they missed nothing.

It’s fantastic to discover a local Cairns company that genuinely provides such amazing and transparent service.

Definitely recommended

The quoting stage was seamless, and explained how it all works in plain english.
They did not try and upsell and were very competitive with their quote.
Customer service was excellent, the team were like a well oiled machine.
There was a waiting period of about 6 weeks for installation, which is about norm in the current market, and also gives a great indication G Solar are well sought after and worth the wait.
Our instal was further delayed due to weather, completely out of the companies hands.
We highly recommend G Solar, professional, thorough and very reasonably priced.
Thanks for everything guys
