Quality service and products

After a magnitude of quotes, Generate Energy's overall service and approach won out in the end. Instead of accepting quotes over the phone and a nearmaps picture with proposed panel layout, Generate were quite happy to attend, twice in fact, to firm up any last minute queries . After working with us waiting on a new roof to be installed installation came as promised. Top group of guys who discussed all aspects of the install and completed without fuss to our needs (asthetics). Athough a small misshap occurred with a foot stepping in the wrong place in the roof space, I was left with 100% assurance of the damage being rectified. Great company, great products and great service! Show additional information

Great installation by Generate Energy

John from GE was very helpful in providing a detailed and accurate quote for my home. GE waited patiently while I had the switch box upgraded to the current standard and a new smart meter installed, which took months - nothing to do with them.

When the day arrived we had a review/discussion at the start of the day about the installation and apart from an occasional question on where i would prefer certain parts of the install to go, they worked all day installing the LG/Enphase solar system. At about 4 pm the switch was turned on and all worked well, and has worked well since then.
Many thanks GE.

The system has not been installed yet. Daniel has been very helpful in discussions as to the best system to install. He has also visited the site to confirm sire location and measurements.
The rating for the quality of the system has been partly determined by the information you have provided, and also by first hand experience of a family member's system.
Congratulations to you Finn for the valuable information you provide to guide us through the solar maze.
Thank you.

Efficient, informative and friendly Installation

From quoting to installation and after sales service the process was very satisfying . Installers attended as planned and Team worked efficiently and coordinated with time to explain set up. Show additional information

Did exactly what they promised

Installed 14 x LG 365W panels and LG RESU10h battery with Solar Edge hybrid inverter.

Everything went to plan except a minor issue with Wi-Fi communications to the inverter, which is not essential for operation it's just for monitoring, which was sorted out a few days after installation. Everything else, so the solar panels, battery and inverter, was fully operational on the day of installation.

All paperwork was arranged efficiently including the SA government battery rebate and electricity meter changeover.

A neat installation job noting that limited space is available on the roof and also where the inverter and battery are located. So everything needed to be tightly fitted in which they did without problems. I would have chosen the 335 W panels and used more of them if not for the space issue - the 365 W are considerably more expensive but there was simply no option to install additional panels due to space so I went for the biggest ones.

No complaints at all.

The delay in installation is because we are all waiting for SA Power, as SA Power has insisted that my old dial meter be relocated from inside the home to outside at the same time that my retailer swops a smart meter.

Also, the quotes from installers to upgrade the meter box inside to become a sub-meter box, move the meter location to an outside box, and add an isolator was mystifying. Comparing apples to apples, quotes were $450 complete to $600 to $2500 to $4000. The solar installation quote I finally accepted included this work at $600.

From the first contact in getting a quote they were very professional from the sale's person (John) to answering any questions that I asked him and the rest of the team invloved. The installers all introduced themselves and were very professional in installing the Solar panels and inverter and were able to answer any questions that I asked them. The company at all levels were very good. Show additional information
It was a pleasure to do business with Generate, from the first phone call, the numerous questions that I had, the follow ups, the site meet, the approvals and to the install. Thanks to all your team. I would definitely recommend you to anyone that I know that would be contemplating going down the solar path. Show additional information
Everything about the job went great, from ordering to installation. Very professional and friendly, recommended to anyone in SA or nearby. Show additional information
Our experience with this company has been excellent. The initial service from Daniel was great - he explained things clearly, didn't pressure us in any way and called back when he said he would.

The installation was booked in promptly and the installers were professional and efficient. Minh was particularly easy to work with and dedicated to ensuring we had had a positive experience. We had an issue with our inverter not connecting to our wifi but were able to rectify that quite easily with our internet provided. We also found an electrical fault during the installation. Minh returned the day after to check the issue and provide advice about how it should be resolved (the issue was already present before the installation, unbeknownst to us).

I would recommend gnr8nrg highly for service, timeliness and price.

Highly organized, knowledgeable, dependable, professional, courteous. Pleasure to deal with the Generate Energy (GNR8NRG) company, in December 18- January 2019. Excellent service provided. Thank you. Show additional information
This company didn't just try to sell us a solar/battery system. Instead, they tailored a set up to suit our individual needs. We found other companies were reluctant to do this. The team at GNR8NRG were great to deal with. Highly recommended. Show additional information

Installed 15 panels over three different roofing sections, 2 with high angle of slope. The installers were professional in their dealings with me and did an excellent job of the install. The system has been working successfully since installation and my first bill since the install was in fact a credit to my account. I can monitor to generation of the system and each panel using the solar edge (inverter) website. I can also download data from the website. Over the next year I should have collected sufficient information to assist me in calculating the cost/benefit of installing a battery. Show additional information
By far, Generate Energy showed the most professionalism compared to the other installers I contacted. Daniel and his team, from the very beginning has been fantastic in answering my questions about the products they offered. I was very particular on what panels I wanted installed at my house. Daniel encouraged me to come into their shop to view the panels and inverters on offer to see them up close and get a better understanding of what they were selling. I ended up choosing LG 320W NeON2 All Black Solar Panels, SolarEdge Optimisers (P370) for each panel and SolarEdge 5kW HD Wave Inverter. The pure black panels are elegant, beautiful and aesthetically pleasing to see on my house.

They have been in the industry for a long time, giving me the reassurance that I needed. I highly recommend them.

Supplier and its personnel were quite helpful and gave me comparison data of various solar equipment in Australia. Recommended the top of the line and equipment was readily available from them and then installed within 2 days after payment and was installed before the Xmas season. I have been using the solar system and I love it... Great effort to the supportive team all working together to provide a positive customer experience.

I highly recommend this company.

The installation team were very efficient and professional.
Just one little gripe. Brick dust and moss from tiles were left behind. A blower vac would have made short work of them.

Jen in the office was very professional. However, she was hampered by the fact that the office emails were not being sent over a period of a week, which may have delayed the installation of the smart meter. However, the meter was put in earlier than expected so there was no hassle as it turned out.

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.

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.
