Original Review on 05-03-2019:

Another installer took over a month to get back to me with just a generic quote, Dear Sir, no personalisation here are our rates...$2000 dearer on a $9500 job.

And another was a Sydney based company, I live 4.5hours North of them! You need more local installers on your books for Midnorth coast.

Was going to go with catch power for HWS, but I have 3 phase, and catch power still only single phase, so would only see a third of my panel array.

Your website is excellent and I compliment u on it, taught me so much.

Looking forward to 9kw on the roof, unfortunately export limited to 5kw from Essential energy.

I have a 3 phase 9kw system installed by G and A Martin here on midnorth coast NSW. Im not sure where the Essential energy solutions Pty Ltd came from on my initial review.
Its awesome, performs above what I expected even with 5kw capping on export. First bill over winter was a $20 credit down from a $500 bill. Spring account due in a week, my AGL app showing we are $260 in credit over the last 3 months...pure happiness. Got something to reduce council rates??? LOL

Original Review on 18-05-2018:

The installer actually got on the roof and measured it as well as checking existing grid connections nearby. He is local and has done installations nearby. He also does electrical work in the retirement village that I reside in so he cannot afford to do a bad job. One of your installers did everything remotely so although the price was best, it was clearly going to change once the installer actually came to install. Finally, your other installer had a brief look and then quoted on an entry level inverter and Talesun panels that are not as well known. Original ratings

8 months later we asked Peter: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

Yes. The electricity bills have definitely been reduced, the last one by over 50%. I'm delighted.

I was impressed with the three you recommended, but ultimately it came down for price for system where GA Martin Electrical won out. Thanks for your help - it really gave me all the information I needed to proceed and understand the quotes I was receiving.

Although I didn't buy from one of the installers you introduced to me, I'd like to thank Solar Quotes for the great resources on your website which provides information from the basic right through to specific details. This was invaluable to me and helped me make my decision when comparing the quotes.

We had 3 solar suppliers come and quote. G & A martin was very good prices compared to the others & still had a SMA SB4000TL Dual inverter for later if we want to add batteries plus we are getting the new Trina 290w panels, we have to wait till March for installation waiting on panels. They do a lot of solar systems installation in this local area.

They were $1000.00 cheaper plus we get a 4kw system instead of a 3kw Sungrow inverter system from Solar Australia.

The other supplier was Mid Coast Solar they were $1200.00 dear & still only a 3kw SolaX hybrid inverter.

We are also able to increase our home system from a 1.5kW system to a 4kW system with G & A Martin, with a SMA 4 kW Dual inverter & new 290w Trina panels, for not much more cost than the others quoted for our Rental property.

I do thank you for your information on panels & inverter types & brands.

Regards & Thanks

From the time of first contact with the salesmen to the time of installation and commissioning you couldn't ask for more. Honest, on time, professional, hassle free and they looked after everything from start to finish.

14 months later we asked John: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

Was disappointed that the Inverter failed and we didn't know for 3 months until our electricity bill showed that there had been no power fed back into the grid. Even though we were compensated a nominal amount for the lost feed-in tariff, we did not get the benefit of using our own solar-generated power for the 3 month period. It appears we should have checked the little coloured lights on the Inverter regularly to make sure all was working correctly, but this was not explained to us at installation and we simply trusted that the product would perform as expected.
The installer's manual states that G A Martin chose the Sunny Roo inverter "because of its reliability and performance". This was clearly an error of judgement.

Thank you for your help in choosing a supplier, it was useful for us in making a final decision and although we did not end up using one of the 3 suppliers you forwarded, one of them in particular (Mark Group) was very helpful and competitive. The decision to use the local supplier was mainly due to recommendation by friends who had already had systems installed, and a preference to use a local company. The experience with GA Martin has been excellent so far, although the final verdict will become apparent when we see the next electricity bill.

Would like to see the reintroduction of return to the grid tariff.

After checking with friends that had solar panels installed by Martins, they said they were very pleased with the results.

The young men that did the work were polite & courteous. Martins have installed most of the solar panels in this area.

Martin is prompt and efficient. I loaded up a list of questions of a technical nature and they answered comprehensively and promptly.

Local Provider was used who was recommended by several friends.

We were a bit surprised that the REC's went down but it was stated on the quote so there were no dramas.
