About Generate Energy , Solar Installers

Generate Energy is an electrical contracting company specialising in the following services:

- Grid Connect Solar Systems

- Hybrid and Stand Alone Energy Storage Systems

- Air Conditioning Systems

- Demand Management Solutions

- Energy Efficient Lighting

- Electrical Contractors


Generate Energy is an amalgamation of two highly regarded Solar and Electrical installation companies in South Australia.

Daniel (Ace Solar & Electrical) and Jarrod (Adelaide Electrical Solar & Security (AESS) having being friends from high school and continuing the friendship after, both became qualified electricians working in the commercial sector. In 2009 Daniel and 2007 Jarrod opened up separate electrical contracting businesses and both quickly branched into the growing renewable energy industry which was in its infancy at the time. Specialising in the installation of quality solar systems, both companies grew from strength to strength in the following years, installing thousands of solar systems between them. Having an existing friendship and being in the same industry, Daniel and Jarrod began working together purchasing containers of solar panels and pallets of inverters to increase their buying power to offer the best pricing available. As a result of this relationship Daniel and Jarrod decided to locate both businesses at the same premises, and due to the close proximity an opportunity arose to begin working together on larger projects. Having worked together for a number of years now combining the two businesses was the next logical step and Generate Energy was born.

Generate Energy now has a larger platform to offer a wider range of solar and electrical services whilst maintaining the professionalism and integrity of the previous two businesses.

While Generate Energy is a new entity the existing customers from the previous businesses we will not be left out in the cold regarding warranty obligations (unlike other companies in the industry have done in the past!). Generate Energy will be carrying ALL workmanship warranties of both businesses and will continue to service product warranties for all existing customers of Ace Solar & Electrical and AESS.


With over 5,000 happy customers across South Australia Daniel and Jarrod have been trusted by many to provide premium quality solar panel systems, installed to a very high degree of workmanship at affordable prices. Both were selected by LG to become LG Dealers and combined achieved the 3rd highest sales in the country in 2015. We have also obtained the status of Fronius Service Partner, REC Solar Professional Installers, Tesla approved installer, CEC accredited installers and designers, ARCTIK refrigeration handling licencing and a Builders licence (BLD261157).


We individually assess our customers’ needs and provide tailed solutions using our extensive range of premium products.

We have spent extensive time researching and testing the products we provide, choosing only to install quality products with proven reliability and performance, sourced from reputable manufactures with Australian based offices.

All work is carried out by our in-house highly trained and experienced staff. This ensures a high level of consistency and professionalism, guaranteeing all our staff are appropriately trained and are kept up to date with the latest technology.

We always endeavour to achieve the ideal solution for our customers, not only for today but also for the future.

As an electrician myself, we really shopped around when it came to solar. I found many other companies simply did not have the technical knowledge required to answer my queries. Daniel was very patient with me and his product knowledge was far superior - The installation team were super friendly and helpful. Our 3 string installation was staggered over two periods and we did have an issue, however this was immediately resolved which to me is a good sign of a company that's really committed serving it's customers. I would highly recommend Gnr8Nrg to anyone looking for a quality system installed by quality technicians. Show additional information
Thanks to Solar Quotes we became more knowledgeable about solar and chose accordingly. Show additional information
Jarrod was incredibly helpful and patient during the quoting process, and produced a system that more than met my requirements. As a result of the time that he spent I've now got a system that will generate enough power, will work in power cuts, and has a good sized and expandable battery system.

Even though the product was higher spec or with better warranties than some of the other quotes I received via this website or elsewhere, the price was not proportionately more expensive, and was actually cheaper than some of the quotes I received for lesser systems. The install was done without mess, and despite the house itself being a bit challenging for them at times they didn't complain.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend GNR8NRG to anyone based on the whole quote and install process.

We were told about solar quotes by a friend which greatly simplified the process. Through that service three contacts were provided that resulted in three quotes, all suitable, for three material and configuration options that arrived within 24 hours with enough information needed to ask any questions that needed to be asked and to then make an informed decision. None of the installers were pushy which was appreciated. We went with Generate Energy and their LG Fronius system - not the cheapest of options but to satisfy our power requirements based on past electricity bills their 330kW LG panels provided the maximum power at an affordable price for our restricted roof area. Installation of the 12 panels (6 facing east, 6 facing west) was easily completed without fuss in a single day. After another few weeks the energy provider installed a smart meter to allow export of excess power. The service provided by Generate Energy at all stages was excellent. Show additional information

Excellent service and advice- from the research I had done, I knew their advice was valid, no sales talk. Everything was done promptly and professionally. Daniel even emailed me late in the evenings to keep me in the loop.
Very impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Found Generate Energy very easy to deal with. Answered all my questions and planned the install in good time. The installers did a vey clean job. am very happy that I choose Generate energy. Show additional information
Based on my experience, I cannot trust items or product from china or other country. That is why I have contacted to the LG company in Sydney. I believe that LG from Korea has high quality skills for technology and their items always are qualified A+. I found an offical provider in adelaide, which is Generate Energy. They were so kindly, polite and moving quickly to be us. Finally, we decided having a solar from LG + Fronius inverter. Installation staffs were perfect, and Office worker, Jen, was really nice.

Heard a good review about this company from a work colleague and was not disappointed.
Went for top quality LG panels with Fronius inverter and they threw in a few extras!
Very happy with Generate Energy and Daniel who helped organise everything from their end.

The options do not allow me to choose another company that is also on your list, as this was exactly what I did.
I was contacted by the three companies from your recommendation, however one in particular I was very disappointed with. I found your website very helpful and combined with other research I settled on Generate Energy out of Pooraka SA.
I would recommend your site, absolutely, combined with further research. I expanded my knowledge of solar from the panel on my bald head to what we will use on my home. The system I have chosen is not cheap but will outlast me and be reliable.

These guys could explain the various options and mix and match to suit my unique installation requirements and needs. They came highly recommended to me from a friend and they delivered on quality and quote - installation is still pending.
They understood their product capability well, which was not always the case with other quotes.

Workmanship and quality / service, perfect Show additional information
While I didn't choose any of the companies initially referred I did choose another company which was also very highly rated on Solar Quotes. This was primarily because the companies who initially quoted didn't offer the exact components I wanted. The problem, of course, is that you don't really know what you need until you've done an appropriate amount of research (which includes getting quotes). Ultimately, my decision was based on system quality - not the cheapest price. I think this is important when you are buying a system that you expect to last 20+ years. Show additional information

Thank you "Generate Energy".

Generate Energy proved to be the most professional, thorough, and no-nonsense supplier we investigated. They offered us the best price for the highest quality panels on the market, being LG NeON2 330w, with a 5kw Fronius inverter. Excellent service from the initial meeting to install to follow up. A well-equipped team with essential electrician knowledge, not just a salesperson. Thanks again Daniel we will be recommending you to anyone looking for the best solar in Adelaide for the best price.

Had our system installed this week and all the guys were great and our system is up and running perfectly.
Jarrod came out and went through the system with us and advised the best system for us and explained and showed us the solar panels that they use.
Had 21 panels and 5KW inverter. It cost $6,990 but well worth it. Had a very old power box and the sparky has done a great job in upgrading the system.
Won't know how much we will save until the next bill (due this week) but so far we are generating more than we are using.

So AESS were really a good choice and glad we went with them

Hard to answer some questions until installed and operating for a while. Show additional information
Supplier service was excellent and took time to explain everything clearly, not like some other suppliers (not suggested by you) who only spent two minutes on the phone and promised to send emails that never came. Installation crew were very good and friendly and explained my options on everything clearly. Show additional information
Excellent service, information, guidance and best price for high quality panels (korean LG). It was worth the extra dollars to upgrade to optimised panels with the superior solar edge system. Thank you Jarrod for your excelllent service. Show additional information
Very professional operation and the installers were very experienced and provided full details of the installation process and the products. I can access my system via my mobile phone, tablet and computer. Show additional information
Ace were the State suppliers of LG panels and reports showed that LG were among the top panels available. Value for money convinced us, after getting 3 quotes and doing research on several brands. Research is VITAL !! Their service was second to none. Installation was top quality and they also removed an old system free, took it away free and replaced any roof tiles on the WHOLE roof that were cracked (we supplied the tiles) free!!! Well, included in the quote, which was about $1200 better than a cheaper brand panel. Cannot fault the Company at all. Highly recommend them. Barry Show additional information

I could not be happier with the service I have received from AESS. They came highly recommended and have certainly lived up to my expectations. Jarrod and the team are truly professional. The experience was positive from beginning to end, I especially appreciated the care and attention to detail of the install team. There are no hidden surprises with all quotes detailed and in writing and a comprehensive swag of info provided at conclusion of installation. A great team who I have no hesitation in recommending.

I recently had a 9KW Solar System installed by AESS. I chose this business based on my research and the many positive reviews that I read on various sites. I have great pleasure in recommending Jarrod Taverna and his team at AESS. They are very professional and all aspects of my project was handled perfectly. Prompt communication and advice was always available. The process from the quote through to the installation was brilliant. A great price with excellent components used.and a terrific result. The workmanship on the installation was outstanding. Show additional information
