The company was efficient and thorough, even to the point of ensuring we were happy with the placement to minimise visual impact on the property.
Every care was taken to ensure that we were pleased and thoroughly informed of how the system worked.

Have signed up and paid deposit but have delayed installation as we are having the roof painted first. Steve was great to deal with and was professionally prepared with a satellite image of the property highlighting the optimal placement of the panels (n/w) as opposed to the rival company who suggested the panels be placed on a n/e facing roof.

At a past residence I had solar But was pressured into a small 8 panel system,( I had enlarged to 12) by a large Australian solar company ,That took lengthy 18 mths to get the solar system inserted and going . It was a horrible experience.
Totally the opposite to geelong solars installation ,, just put in that was smooth and easy , providing a suitable ,solar system that should future proofed for where I live now .
Note- last 3 months There was Multiple solar companies, I contacted Most companies didn't follow up on emails, quotes.,or phone calls. Of the 5 that did , they tried to push set installation of certain panels ( 10-12), and inverters , and prices.
All barely answering any questions ,mostly saying 'this is all we can offer.'
I felt 'geelong solar 'came forth with clear explanations of which solar system was best ,suiting ,this actual coastal location ,roof ,orientation,and type and even introducied a solar system of enough panels (20), and inverter level(5.9)(including Types ofpanels / inverters available )that invariably future.proof my house,. Pricing was even at reasonable, comparable rate .
Geelong solar owner ( Steve Moriati) knowledgeablely answered all questions ,no matter how trivial, and was easy to communicate with . His coordination of installation and .His fantastic team,who
worked in unison , enabled completion of the job quickly:.At all times they kept me in the loop,, as did the follow up solar inspector . Literally all I'm awaiting is the Powercorp rebate paper work to finalise
(I'm assured be only 20-30 days )
The only uncertainty I had ,at all ,was of date of installation ,after inclement weather -pushed my actual installations back in the queue.,by 2 wks..

We were very pleased with Steve and his team as they were pleasant and helpful, as well as being excellent tradesmen. The system works well and we are really looking forward to a sunny summer to maximise the benefits of solar. Show additional information
From the first moment we dealt with Steve Moriarty from Geelong Solar Energy we could not fault the entire process. The quality of the system supplied and the value for money is exceptional. But above all the customer service from Steve and the team was exceptional throughout. We would highly recommend Steve and the team of Geelong Solar Energy. Show additional information
So Happy we could liaise with Steve and solve problems together with a great outcome due to tile problems.We liked how Steve always had our best interests at heart, very genuine and trustworthy chap. His staff cleaned up afterwards and Steve explained at length the system in layman's terms. We trust his workmanship and already our electricity is 44% lower according to the chart we log into. Thanks Geelong Solar, we recommend you to others. Show additional information
Being a technician for many years and also selling product, I never like hard pushy salesmen. Steve came out with all the information needed to supply me with a system that suited my needs not just got him pay packet.
Then he and his team got there on time install the system. No fuss while doing the job. Cleaned up after themselves and Steve followed up on the next business day to show us how to use the unit.
I cannot recommend these guys highly enough.
If you want the right system, at the right price and installed without any hassles call the guys at Geelong Solar Energy..

Hi All,
We had a 5.4 kw system installed locally by Steve at Geelong Solar and was very happy with his honest approach and fantastic advise.
The installation was completed with 290W panels, on time and to an excellent standard with a great team of guys.
The system is working well and we would recommend Geelong Solar highly.

Finn, Geelong Solar were fantastic. Didn't go ahead and get the other quotes as these people were local and could not have been better I have alrady recommended them to to other people. Show additional information
There were delays in installation due to poor weather. Steve kept me informed of these delays and carried out installation as soon as was possible. Very happy dealing with him and will recommend him and his crew to others. Show additional information
It was great to have someone that wasn't trying to sell you something that you knew you already wanted. Straight to the point, "These are the options. This is what I thinks is best for you. Here are the prices." Couldn't get any easier. Show additional information
Absolutely seamless experience. Very happy with the installer (Geelong Solar Power) and the installation. Show additional information
Very easy to deal with and very responsive. I would recommend them to friends for sure Show additional information
They were very helpful and gave us good service Show additional information
Dealt with Steve and Josh. I found them to be extremely helpful in going through the process of deciding which system to install, we started initially looking at a 5wK system, but in the end we decided to install a 10kW inverter with 7kW of panels, with a view to install more panels down the track ($$ constraints), and eventually installing batteries and going off the grid (hopefully). They were more than happy to supply us with a number of options including different inverters (Fronius, Zeversolar or SMA) until we found one that suited our needs (and budget). I would highly recommend these guys if you are in the Geelong area. Show additional information
The availability by GSE, prior to my purchase decision of an energy consultant who also advised me on my total energy systems and how to best utilize all together was very valuable. The company director is very professional. Happy to recommend Show additional information

Right from the start Steve was very helpfull with the location and type of system needed for my roof. Steve and his team arrived on the agreed time and had the system installed and up and running in 3 hours. A job well done. Show additional information
Incredibly responsive service. Willing to answer all questions and to give me time to think about it or get other quotes. Treated with respect and on time. Show additional information
Geelong Solar was very efficient with their time, getting paperwork together, coming out and looking at the premises. They got back to us with answers to our questions very promptly and the installation was very quick and...they took away all their rubbish. Show additional information

Steve was very efficient, helpful and fantastic to deal with. Did a great job of installation and the whole experience was fabulous from start to finish. Very impressed and can highly recommend Show additional information
Geelong Solar Energy were a little more expensive than the other quotes, but the service and information was given without pressure, and was extremely helpful. Steve made several visits to help me understand what I was getting and how it would work. All the paper work was taken care of. His contractors were excellent installers as verified by the Inspector who came next day. They were happy and very polite workers, who got the job well done in good time. Since instillation on my large roof the system has been working very well and it will be interesting to see the power account, when it is connected to the grid buy back, which does take a while from installation date. Show additional information
The guys arrived on the agreed day, on time, with all the required equipment. They were polite & interested in the job. Whilst 1 guy worked in setting up the inverter the other 2 guys fitted the panels to the roof. It was all installed within 5 hours, tested & operating. I was taken through the operating procedures & all the required paperwork was left with me. The inspector arrived later in the day & went through checking the system. All good.
I was impressed from start to finish, from our first inquiry until completion nothing was too much trouble. I have since spoken to Steve on a couple of minor matters & he is very helpful.

The system has only been in use for 6 weeks, so too early to say what the benefits will be. Show additional information
Steve was great to deal with. I purchased 12 x Suntech panels (3.48 KW) and a 5 KW Zeversolar string inverter. Show additional information
Steve gave a fast quote and communicated well during the pre and post install process. He was happy to entertain various options even though he had strong opinions on certain aspects of the install. I went for 'good' quality components rather than top of the line which helped keep the price down hence the 'quality of system' rating, that is not a reflection on the quality of the work which was excellent. 'His installers were fantastic, efficient and neat causing minimum disruption to our day. I would recommend getting a quote from Geelong Solar. Show additional information
I am very pleased with Geelong Solar Energy who installed my System last week. Steve was very patient and explained everything to me in an easy way, which was most helpful. His team of installers was quick, neat and very pleasant and did an excellent job. They obviously got on well together and enjoyed their work. The Inspector, next day, said they were the best in the business and had no problems with their work. I am very pleased I have had a Solar System finally installed. I should have done it quite some time ago. Show additional information
I don't usually give top ratings but I think it's deserved in this case. I was kept well informed throughout the process, and the installation was done within a reasonable time frame. The installation was carried out professionally, evern to the point of a fantastic cleanup by the contractor. There wasn't a single sign that anyone had been on the property - apart from the inverter - a very tidy installation - and new panels that I can only see from the next street!

The contractor came to my home later in the day - after working hours - to show me through the basics of the system. He was friendly and helpful throughout the process. I'm a manager in a highly customer-focused profession, and I commend the contractor and his team on their exemplary customer service.

Very happy with the Geelong Solar Energy team, they didn't muck around, hopped straight into it and got the job done without a fuss, they cleaned up after it was finished and overall an excellent job by the installers. Show additional information
Steve from Geelong Solar Energy was on time for our first meeting, with the deal done instillation soon followed. I am happy with every aspect, nice neat job by his team of installers. Show additional information
Steve from Geelong Solar Energy was great to deal with. He discused what system would best suit my power usage and he showed me after installation what the info on the inverter actually means. The guys who installed the solar panels and upgraded my electricity switch box were very professional and the installation was completed within 2 business days. I highly recommend Geelong Solar Energy for there price, service, professionalism and post install support. Show additional information

From the outset everything went great, 15 days from signing the contract to having the system up & running.Steve & his crew are very thorough, the installation is very neat & all the packaging was removed from the job site when they were finished. We had 17 Solar panels installed, the crew arrived at 8am on the day (as promised), and were finished, having fitted & tested the installed unit, by 1.30 pm the same day. They also took me around & showed me how to read the meter on the inverter & also our Smart meter.
Could I be happier, yes, if the buyback tariffs were around the old original tariffs( just kidding)
Very very happy with the installation & also with Steve & his installing crew. Well done guys.

Both of the companies you suggested were exceptional and thorough.
We spent a reasonable amount of time deciding and both were significantly more thorough than the larger providers that we spoke to.

Both came to site whereas the others simply looked at the house via a satellite and provided a quote for a system that may need to be modified when the installer arrived.

I would have no hesitation in recommending either installer nor your company for the service provided.
Best price and convinced that it was the best product.

A bit hard to rate the quality of the system as it hasn't been installed yet but research shows this is a good quality system at a very competitive price. Show additional information
