Geelong Solar are The Best

There was not a hastle from the moment I spoke with Josh, to the moment the boys rocked up to install, and the girls in the office went out of their way to assist.
The Geelong Solar, very much for a great product and wonderful service. We will recommend you to our friends.

An Extremely Process from Quote to Installation and Commissioning!

Geelong Solar responded quickly to my request for a quote to replace our 13 year old system.
Steve visited our property to discuss the best solution for our house including the current government incentives.
The quote was emailed shortly afterward.
Three weeks later the system is up and running including the final inspection.
The installation was completed in one day by an extremely professional team.

A Company true to their word .. Geelong Solar Energy

We were most impressed by the operation and the delivery of our Solar Panel Josh actually came to our home
inspected the property then sat down with us and explained the whole project clearly by bringing up our property on his laptop and showed us exactly where the panels and the inverter would be placed the reason why, where and when (We had already received 3 other quote which were given to us via interview by phone or Zoom so we were quite informed ) When we acceptedthe quote he did the Fed & State grant application for us which was approved immediately, he then gave us an approximate date for job which true to his word, the installers arrived a couple of days earlier then expected, they were very polite, friendly, fast and very tidy. The Company then organized the inspector who connected the grid within 12 days and now approximately 6 weeks later all up and running without a hitch..
We found both staff and installers excellent and we highly recommend them. THANKYOU to the team from satisfied customers in Torquay

Very professional and great team, installers were a blast too

Great experience from start to finish with Geelong Solar Energy

Highly recommended.

Great to deal with from the get go. It felt like I got got honest advice on which package to go for and not just a sales pitch. The installers did an excellent job, as I am very fussy I went over everything, and could not fault the workmanship, nice attention to detail.. i had an issue not long after the installation, Steve, the owner was at my place within half an hour to check it out, ended up being nothing to do with the system.... old school Aussie service. Thanks Steve and team. Highly recommended.

Solar panel installation

The quoting process was great as they were the only firm that come to the house. The installer gang were great they seemed to enjoy each others company and worked very well together. They organised all the connections and advised powercore. We could not be happier with Steve and his staff.

Fantastic Installer

The sales/quoting process was very informative. All our questions were answered to our satisfaction. We were provided with documentation that gave details of the system that were easy to follow and understand.

The installation occurred sooner that expected which was very pleasing. The installation team were very efficient and went about their business in a professional manner. The supervisor was happy to answer any questions we had throughout the day. He came back the following day to upgrade the switchboard and commission the system.

Overall, we were very pleased with the process from start to finish.

Job well done.

The process with Geelong Solar was very professional and well run. The process was very smooth and trouble-free from quotation to installation, including connection to the grid. Very happy with the result.

Hassle free process from start to finish

A very simple process from the initial enquiry, receiving an on-site quote (which others didn't do) and expert assistance in completing the paperwork made this a simple and easy process. Installation was done in a very timely manner with no issues - in and out within a few hours. Inverter installed where requested with no issues.

All staff members were considerate and polite and explained in detail how everything worked from initial installation to approval and switch-on. Everything has worked out smoothly with retailer actioning their requirements and we should be seeing results very soon.

Steve came out to quote within two days of my inquiry. He was very helpful and informative. This is our 3rd time having solar installed at our properties by different companies, and this time was a stand out as far as service, accountability, cost value and communication goes. The installers were mindful and professional during the install and quick.
We had our solar completely installed within two weeks of my initial inquiry.
All connected and operating in a timely manner. I will definately be recommending this company to others.

Once again absolutely fabulous

Great company to deal with

Professional company who came around and quoted rather than over the phone. They were able to see what we needed rather than guess. Prices are competitive and company is local which is a bonus.

Great service

I found Geelong Solar and Electrical very professional and punctual from quote to installation. Their office manager Emily was very helpful to me in getting the Victorian solar rebate organised (as I am not very computer literate).
The installation was excellent, done on a Saturday, Inspection and turned on Monday.
I am unable to comment on value for money etc. until the system has been working for a while until bills and feed in tarriffs are viewed.
I am anticipating a good result based on research.

Fantastic from start to finish!

I got 7 quotes from around the Geelong area. These guys were the most polished, professional and timely. Their price was reasonable but not cheap and they had a good explanation for why that was. I was happy to pay for more than the cheapest option for the quality of their service.

They were willing to tell me some hard truths that others weren't, such as why it was important in my case to have the panels on the front of the house.

The installers were excellent - punctual, tidy, friendly, fast and with no hiccups.

The customer service was great. I was clearly communicated with, they did all the heavy lifting on the grid connection, inspection, etc.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Happy Chappy

Firstly what a great bunch of fellas that came and did my installation. From the beginning Steve was with me all of the way. Whenever I needed help or problem Steve was there for me. Even the young lady in the office no matter what she helped me through all of my problems. So what more can one ask for. Just awaiting now for the Fella to come and turn it all on then its all systems go for me. So right price. Great example of customer service. Geelong Solar is the way to go.

Trouble Free Installation

This is a very busy company, but after I entered the work schedule program, it all went like clockwork.

The time schedules can be lengthy but timelines quoted by the company are realistic and reliable.

The work team was exceptionally polite and I was impressed how the whole team worked quietly and efficiently to complete the installation in a short space of time.

One week as now passed and the only matter outstanding is the attendance of the "inspector" to approve the installation.
Show Details

This is installation number 8 for us. A consumer doesn't go back 8 times if not for business excellence xx

The team is proactive and do the work on time and without fuss. They were polite and the process of installation was streamlined right down to assisting with the grid installation after the install.

Easy installation

Geelong solar came out to quote and looked around to make sure everything was suitable for the system.

They are super busy and it took about 10 weeks from quote to install. But the install day was simple and easy and they organised everything.

Easy set up

Had a rep come out to view the property and my bills to offer the best system. Real easy to deal with and everything was explained clearly. They were very honest in advising there the wait time for installation was delay, however due to other jobs falling through they were able to install earlier. The installation team were not contractors and were very efficient and tidy. I was also kept informed if any solar placement changes were needed on the roof. Very happy so far.

It was great from start to finish, everything explained personally, installation was quick, guys did a great job with no problems, inspector came within a week. Highly recommend "Geelong solar".

This whole job was great from start to finish, Josh (Sales Manager) came to the house and explained everything and at the end i was confident I had made the right choice to go ahead.

Guys came to the house at the time and day arranged, introduced themselves and job started. On completion they left the site clean and tidy, explained what was going to happen next, asked if i had any questions and made sure that i was happy.
Inspector visited within a week and all was ok'd quickly with no faults.

I am very happy with "Geelong Solar" and the proffessional approach they take. I am happy to highly recomend them to anybody that is thinking of moving to Solar.

Thanks Team......Good Job.

Fantasic Installer

I was very impressed with the installers who came to fit my solar panels. Really pleased with the way it was handled from start to finish and very happy to obtain the full export to the grid as I was given zero export at the start but the team at Geelong Solar Energy got that upgraded to full export. Very impressed. Thank you.

A very professional and experienced company

The sales and quoting was all fully explained about the most suitable size of the system.
I was very happy with the cost of the system.
All the paperwork and notifications to connect to the grid and my power supplier were all done by Geelong Solar
The installation crew were very experienced and professional with the process,
they arrived about 8am and completed before 1pm and the site was left spotless.
The Electrical inspector arrived shortly after, approved the system and was switched on.

Many thanks to Steve, Chris and the installation crew for their professional expertise.
Thanks also to the the very smart young office lady who helped me through all the application and documentation process.

Perfect customer service and install with Geelong Solar Energy.

Steve really knows his stuff with Solar, it shows because he comes to your place and takes the time to evaluate your house and explain to you your best options. Even post install Steve has called me numerous times to make sure the system is working well and to help me work through an issue where I wasn’t able to feed into the grid due to powercore. After his advice im now feeding in to the grid and the system is working perfectly.

I got good word of mouth from multiple people about Geelong solar energy and it has proven right, which is why I give them a glowing endorsement.

Geelong Solar Energy

We used Geelong Solar Energy for our recently installed 6.6kw System. From the outset Josh and Steve have been fantastic. From the prompt competitive quote to the follow up questions and install, everything has been seemless. We were also lucky enough to get feedback into the grid sorted on the day of install as well. Thanks Josh! Chris and his team for install were also faultless, finishing the job by just after lunchtime. We opted for a Fronius Invertor and Q Cell panels.
Highly recommend Geelong Solar Energy.

Professional Installation And Great Customer Service

Josh from Geelong Solar Energy came to my house to find out what Solar PV system would fit best on the roof. He was very experienced and provided two system options. The quoting process was transparent and my questions were answered.

Leading up to the install, Steve has kept me up to date and informed me in advance when the installation will be. The installation was done by Chris and his small team. The got here on time and then also suggested to put panels on 3 sides of the roof for maximum efficiency. The installation was carried out in a tidy and professional manner.
The system was commissioned by the inspector the next day. When I had issues setting up the data monitoring app on the phone, one of the Geelong Solar Energy guys came within an hour to help me set up the app. Geelong Solar Energy are really approachable, helpful and professional. I feel like I am looked after really well as a customer. They also offered to help me to organise the grid connection after the install.
5 stars out of 5 to Geelong Solar Energy, Highly Reccommend.
