Smooth and hassle free upgrade to solar installation

The 3 quotes supplied were all considerably better than those I had obtained independently. All quoters provided variations to their scope of works once talking to me, improving my confidence in finding the right system for us.
Installation took a day only. Remarkable considering it was a 2 storey house they were installing on.
The winning tenderer arranged the safety check, initial liaison with the grid supplier and retailer. It was a very smooth process.

Great Service and Top Products

After my initial approach to Geelong Solar Steve came round and discussed our needs with us and provided useful advice. He then provided a written quote and was happy to discuss it with us. Once we decided to proceed, the installation happened quickly and smoothly, with the friendly and knowledgeable installation team. Our system is now up and running and we are very happy with it. Geelong Solar were local, very helpful, and easy to deal with - I would recommend them. Show additional information

The Professionals

Geelong Solar Energy is an example of how every private business and government department for that matter should operate. The quoting process was efficient and easy to understand. Personal visit to my property gave me confidence that my job was understood and important. I was assisted with the difficult state government process of applying for the solar grant which gave me the edge over other applicants. Installation was arranged at a time to suit me. The installation team was three charming and efficient young men who were superb. Very neat job and when finished explained the system and what to do next. Cleaned up beautifully. Absolutely impressed. Many thanks. Show additional information

Fantastic install

Just a short note here to thank Geelong Solar Energy for their quick and efficient supply of my new Solar Power generation system. The Powercore inspector gave it a clean bill of health on Monday and agreed with me as to the quality and workmanship so obviously evident with this installation. To have all this happen as quickly and efficiently as it has is a clear endorsement of Geelong Solar Energy and staff and their above average function. I am very happy with my dealings with this company and have no qualms about recommending them to anyone who wants a quality job. Again, thank you all at Geelong Solar energy.
Yours faithfully
Russell R.

Great Service, highly recommend

Steve and the guys at Geelong Solar Energy where great to work with, had no problems with them and everything they told us was true to there word. They helped us through the application process and answered any questions we had. Installation was easy, they did it while we where at work and we returned to panels already working and no mess. Great work, I would highly recommend them to anyone. Show additional information

Exceptional Service and Installation!

I started my journey to find a solar installer mid March 2019. I took the time to look through the solar quotes rankings and find an installer that was near enough to me with a great rating. I landed on Geelong Solar Energy. After speaking with Steve regarding what I wanted, and a few back and forth questions which he was very helpful with, we decided on 22x Suntech 300w panels and a 5kw Fronius Primo inverter. I also opted in for both the Fronius smart meter and the Solar Analytics smart meter, as per your recent article recommending both, if budget allows. I'm in the IT industry, so I know the value of good monitoring, so this was an easy sell.

I was also lucky enough to get my solarvic rebate application lodged roughly 1 week before the government made changes to the scheme, which I received an email from them saying that all current applications would be honoured. What a relief that was.

It took a few months to get to install, due to them being very busy, but I finally got the install completed at the start of August.

The guys onsite were very professional and courteous. Answered all my questions and left the site clean. The installation also looks clean and tidy.

We did have an issue on the day where we weren't able to fit all 22 panels, so only 20 ended up on the roof, 2 went back with the guys and the quote was adjusted.

I was the first solar analytics customer Steve had so it took a little bit to get sorted (and a little bit of convincing from me as to why I needed both installed), but I think we both had the opportunity to learn something new which was great, and everything is working perfectly.

Very highly recommend!

Outstanding Supplier

We did our research, regarding solar companies, panels & invertors, most forums for pros & cons, so that our questions were more relevant. Of 3 quotes, all Geelong businesses, Geelong Solar was the middle choice, the variations only varied by a couple of hundred dollars, but Steve was very patient & well informed. Admittedly we have purchased the Rolls Royce of systems, but, you get what you pay for. For us the LG 370 panels are outstanding combined with a Fronius invertor, we have a 5kw system & on connection the invertor indicated an immediate rating of b/w 4.6 & 4.96kw. Impressive.

The installers led by Chris, are a credit to Geelong Solar & local trades, very personable, polite, respectful & efficient. Arrived on time by appointment, non intrusive to our home, cannot speak more highly of a high quality job. Very smooth operation. Thankyou.

Clean and Efficient Installation

Geelong Solar were very clear and concise in respect to pricing of various systems. Once we selected them, from the numerous quotes we obtained, and booked the deliver/installation date everything ran smoothly. The installation team were very polite and provided very clear information as to the installation being undertaken. Their work was very professional and very tidy. Upon completion i was taken on a tour of what had been done during the process and then provided all details and information on operating and caring for the solar system. Show additional information

Fantastic Installer, Beautiful Installation!

When we read the testimonials for Geelong Solar, after hearing a few not so good reports about other suppliers, our direction was set.
Steve's administration was excellent, his installation team are friendly and efficient and we are pleased with how it was all done.
I'd have no reservation in recommending Geelong Solar, as they are a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Steve and your team.

I have given the above ratings on the basis of our installation having only completed 10 days ago.
Looking forward to seeing the benefits down the track once all processes have been done and we are feeding back to grid.

Very impressed with Steve and the team from Geelong Solar Energy. Excellent support and service throughout all stages of the process. Workmanship of the installation appears to be first rate. Steve completed and submitted all paperwork to relevant authorities as promised. The system is running perfectly; and the standard, remote monitoring function of the Fronius inverter is terrific. Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better solar installation experience. I recommend Geelong Solar Energy unreservedly to anyone in the market for a quality system. Show additional information
I’m so sorry I filled this in ages ago and obviously forgot to send it!
Steve and his crew were great, very informative and very efficient. Did a great job. Just wish we had known that the state rebate was going to happen.

Geelong Solar Energy were very good with their quotation. No additional pressure to accept. Installation was completed within a day with no damage to property and no packaging etc. left behind after installation. All the installation crew were polite and caring of our property. A pleasant company to deal with. All necessary paper work supplied and explained with the follow up procedures such as inspection, contacting Power core and relevant suppliers done.

One company did not make contact other than an initial email acknowledgement. Would not recommend them to my worst enemy.
Another sent an accountant as their salesman. They made no effort to inspect switchboard capability or provide a suggested plan of panel siting.
Geelong solar was most professional of your trusted suppliers.

Very experienced company, easy to deal with great installation crew. Show additional information
The installation crew was fantastic. They arrived on time (spot on), were very professional and left the place spotless. Installation only took 3 hours and Chris spent plenty of time talking to me to make sure everything was what I wanted and answered all questions.
After installation, I was provided with plenty of documentation via email on how to set up the app for monitoring the inverter.
I feel very confident if I need help in the future for any reason that I'll get excellent service.

Very positive experience all round. Only negative that I came across is that for the Fronius Inverter to connect to the Internet, you have to punch holes in your firewall. I have done this temporarily to enable product registration and warranty extension however, it is worth pointing out to the general solar community that this type of connection to the internet does expose homes to hacking. I intend to block access again after I've had a chance to monitor performance and output for a week or so. Show additional information

Steve and the Team at Geelong Solar Energy are great. Steve kept me up to date with what was happening and when we would get our panels installed. He has explained everything from being to end and offered great after service assistance as well. The Team that installed the panels got in and did the job. It was also nice to hear them work well together and have a laugh while they worked. Thank you to everyone highly recommend Geelong Solar Energy. Great service, products and competitive price.

Steve the boss was very helpful and informative regarding the choices we had for our Solar installation. He promptly came out to inspect the house and we didn't have to wait too long considering the list of customers he already had for installations.
