I was very happy with the job. It all happened so quickly and smoothly, from quote to installed in 4 weeks. They did a fantastic job with the installation. They cleaned up after themselves and were done in a day. Show additional information
Great process from end-to-end. Particularly impressed with the installers who adjusted the panel installation to address an unexpected antenna placement. Great service from a local company. Show additional information
Geelong Solar Energy came to us on recommendation from a friend who had his system installed by them not long ago. The whole experience from first contact with Steve to the install was fantastic, Chris the electrician came and did a full site inspection before the install took place to check that the power supply to the property was adequate, he checked all switchboards in every shed and even checked the electrical pit on the main road, very thorough, the install team were fantastic and did a great job, the system looks great, we are very happy with the whole process and we can highly recommend Geelong Solar Energy Show additional information
Thorough attention to detail from the first visit, through to the installation and commissioning of our new system. Would readily recommend Geelong Solar Energy to friends. Show additional information
The team did a good job, although they turned up almost 2 hours later than promised with no apology for being late which was annoying Show additional information

We were particularly impressed. The sales process was thorough and honest. We were concerned with the appearance of the installation, and through a site visit Steve was able to come up with a solution that we hadn't thought of - or been suggested by the multiple other companies we had spoken to - that means the entire installation is almost invisible. The guys that did the installation were also first class. They further refined the details to suit our needs, and all the workmanship is as good as I've seen. The price/kw was the same as another quote we recieved, but we were confident they would do a good job and we weren't let down. Show additional information

The team were professional, purposeful and fantastic to have on my property. They explained who they were what they were doing and what I could expect. Their communication was excellent. The team were very friendly, arrived punctually and just got on with the job. Show additional information
After reading all the amazing testimonials on SolarQuotes I was convinced to give Geelong Solar Energy a try to see if they lived up to their reputation. Well, Steve, Chris and the boys surpassed it. From the initial interview with Josh to the final installation everything was as smooth as silk. I am exceptionally happy with the end result and look forward to the last piece of the puzzle falling into place - starting to be paid for the energy I'm feeding back to the grid. Well done guys.

Initial quote and installation was brilliant . . and the system is great and working well . . . however their after sales service is very poor.
I have been trying for weeks to get the panels hooked up with the Enphase app but after repeated calls and promises to get it sorted I still do not have the app working more than 8 weeks after installation . . (I should not have paid the full amount until the app was working!!)

We were extremely happy with Geelong Solar Energy. Steve was very helpful, especially as we almost signed with another more expensive company. He offered us advice and saved us money!! The tradesmen were also very efficient and able to assist us with information. We recommend Geelong Solar Energy. Show additional information
Steve was very helpful and informative and did not try to persuade me to have a bigger system than I needed. Was on time in regards installation date and the 4 installers were fantastic. they arrived at 8am and were finished and gone by 10am. Did not leave any mess behind and quality of workmanship was first class. Steve then finished the process by coming out and going through the details on how to read the inverter. Very highly recommended company. Excellent communication. Show additional information
We chose Geelong Solar Energy (GSE) on the the recommendations of friends who have systems installed by GSE, the best quote of three received and conversations with Steve Moriaty(owner/manager). We are convinced that the company presents honestly and that the system will prove to be of high quality and excellent value. The company has maintained good communications, explaining processes clearly and helpfully. The installation team of three were polite, friendly and highly professional in installing the system of 20 panels neatly and explaining its operations. We can confidently recommend Geelong Solar Energy on every criteria. Show additional information
Salesman turned up on time and answered all our questions accurately and without the "hard sell". The order of works occurred just as we were promised and communication was excellent. The installers were able to fit around our needs and the instal happened within a couple of hours, with all building mess cleaned up. Follow up call had to be made a couple of times, due to my busy schedule, but they persisted and talked to me personally. If we now complete the paper work and get the feed in credits, I will be a very happy person. This has been the least fuss job I have ever ordered! Show additional information
Only had one quote - but they were solid - trustworthy. And after reading many reviews on your website, this reassured me. Show additional information
Combination of Knowledge and speed of response and installation promise, impressive Show additional information
The works manager, Steve Moriaty came to Aireys Inlet and discussed the job at length with us. He gave a time frame for installation and this turned out to be earlier than anticipated. The two workers on the job, Brad and Angus, were very pleasant and efficient. The only organisation dragging their feet at this stage is Powercorp, who apparently must lower the incoming voltage. The issue initially was that the grid for the area was set at capacity for 1, 2, and larger allotments. The area however has undergone extensive resubdivision and in some cases to block sizes of 600m2 which would place greater strain on the power infrastructure. Show additional information
Steve & the team were fantastic to deal with. Gave us all the information and left us to decide, no "pushy" salesmanship just facts and advice.
Installation was amazing all done in 3hrs no mess no fuss.
Recommend this company they are great.

Very happy with the choice of Solar installations.
The company met with me a few times and answered my questions promptly.

Also they were able to perform the installation quicker than originally advised.

I had prevaricated about getting solar panels for a while. After finally biting the bullet, it was simpler and less hassle than I anticipated.
The process was quick and efficient from consultation to installation. I am looking forward to sunny days ahead!

Geelong Solar Energy installed 12 solar panels on my roof last week. I am delighted with the high level of service and care taken by Brad, Chris, Andy and Angus. They arrived on time , were polite and efficient, the site was left cleaner than before they arrived. I have been impressed with Steve's follow up calls to make sure everything is working well. I would not hesitate to recommend Geelong Solar Energy. Show additional information

I chose Geelong Solar Energy because they build systems with good quality solar panels and German inverter.
Steve Moriarty, the boss, is a very busy man and hard to get hold of, but he is good to deal with when you do - very knowledgeable, straight forward, and time-efficient.
Simply a great team who installed the system - clean, friendly, efficient, and great teamwork.
I am very pleased with the 4800 watt PV system installed. Since installed three and a half days ago it has pumped 98Kw into the grid.
The Fronius inverter app for installing the monitoring function just didn't work for me on my iPhone, ipad or laptop. I eventually got it working by installing it manually after finding some instructions on the Fronius website. It would have saved me many wasted hours if the Fronius documentation had included these in the first place.

The service call was pleasant and informative.
The installers were quick, efficient, polite and cleaned up after themselves.
Of necessity, the installation is quite a noisy process so don't plan on a peaceful couple of hours when they are due to work on your roof.
Good company to work with - thank you.

Very happy with the whole process from the quote to the quality of the system, the installation, the install team and support with questions before and after the job was done.

Steve from Geelong Solar Energy was fantastic from the beginning. He was the only installer that came out promptly and performed a thorough inspection. The quote was detailed and gave me good options from various manufacturers. I appreciated the follow-up and also attention to detail, right down to ensuring he had the exact specification of our roofing to select the installation method. We have just had the system installed and the tradespeople were on time, professional and did a very neat job - which we appreciated as it is a brand new house. This was a big decision to invest $17k in solar and we are very happy we went with Steve and Geelong Solar Energy. Show additional information

Investigating solar systems by firstly understanding your power bills and how they work is fundamental to be able to determine is solar economically worth it. I wanted batteries as well to store power for nightly use. This turned out to be too expensive to be worth the investment by some $20,000. It will take a couple more years for the development of this technology to be viable for residential use I believe. I do want a system that I can add to in time, however. It is complicated understanding the various charges on your power bill as there are 4 different charges and 2 discounts available on mine. You also need to understand your usage as per kw/hour - Our power bills are expensive ie: $1,173 & $723 for the last 2 quarters and I want to reduce this cost. When you do this you can then begin to investigate the solar system and the economics.
Get 3 quotes - in my case, they ranged from the power retailer, another company people recommended and then Geelong Solar Energy which was recommended by the website Solar Quotes. Prices and systems recommended varied from $10,000 down to $6,890. You then need to understand panels and what is available in size (I have 20 panels @ 300 watts each totalling 6kw) The inverter system converts this to power in my house and the maximum you can have is 5kw without seeking approval to increase this. This limit is to make sure there isn't an overload of power back into the grid. I am not so concerned about generating power back to the grid but being able to generate power for my own use - this is the primary reason I have put panels on my roof which in turn hopefully reduces my bills. I estimate we should reduce same by $1,200 per half year which would repay the capital back in 3 years.
Geelong Solar Energy were the best provider on all counts - cost, service, systems and advice. I am not interested in slick salesmen or door knockers - I want good old fashioned no-nonsense service and price. The installation team were absolutely first class and the young guys were gentlemen in both manners and workmanship. I can only recommend them based on my investigation and experience. Time will tell on the validity of the system from an economic point of view.
