Brilliant Service

The team from Gener8 made the whole solar process easy, from the quoting to installation. A very professional team.

Efficient friendly service

This is my second go at this. I wrote a really long review saying how good this company is...how efficient and friendly they are with great communication (Emily) and efficient installation including all the paperwork for grid connections etc (Karl, Tyler and crew). Then I lost it when the code to submit was sent...so this is the short version...but I'd certainly recommend them if you want to do your but for the planet and reduce your power bills at the same time.

Fabulous installer and great people.

Request for a quote was attended to quickly and Nathan was very knowledgeable and able to answer any queries that I had. Quote was competitive and once I had decided to proceed with GenR8, they kept me posted on the process and timeline for installation. A big bonus was the earlier than initially proposed installation date and a very professional and speedy install by Karl, Bailey and Toby just 4 days before Xmas had us connected, up and running within minutes of the job being completed. All official paperwork was taken care of by Emily in administration and we are already building up a credit balance. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending GenR8 to anyone considering the installation of a rooftop solar system. They are great people to deal with.

Very happy customer

I was referred to Genr8 by another happy customer. I was impressed by the knowledge and recommendations Genr8’s staff showed. I was updated throughout the process, and Genr8 is always on the ball to address any questions I have. The electricians who installed the solar system were very respectful of my home, and are friendly. They made sure the process is explained to me, and working before packing up to leave. I am very happy with the whole process.

Highly efficient team

I would highly recommend the Genr8 team for their great work ethic. Beginning with Emily in the office and then on to the team of Karl, Bailey, and Toby, who came to install the system.
Emily was very efficient and answered my questions promptly.
The guys seemed to have a great rapport with one another and worked very efficiently as a team. Aspects of the work were discussed with me as needed and it all seemed to go very smoothly. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Fantastic Company

A great local company . They are punctual and reliable . Emily in the office was quick to answer questions and kept us up to date. The installers Luke Ben and Jack were efficient and friendly. When all installed Luke spent the time to explain our new system .

Genr8 battery install

I cannot recommend Genr8 enough - everything from the initial quote through to the final install of my battery, was perfect & great value for money.
The customer service not only to book in my installation, but to also fix a bunch of problems that a previous company left behind was incredible.
The install itself also had a couple of connection issues, the install crew did not leave until they had everything fixed & working perfectly.
The crew were helpful, polite, clean…
Wish I’d used them for the whole installation.

Brilliant Installer!

Genr8 were fantastic! We had a quote around a year ago, at which point we opted it wasn't feasible for us. A year later we decided to revisit the idea of solar... Contacted Genr8 again and they promptly sent a revised quote that we eagerly accepted. They handled everything for us, installation was swift and communication was faultless!

Smooth and Easy Transaction

The salesperson was imformative and understanding of me needs. He was genuinely interested in providing what I wanted and what he considered optimal for our home and circumstances.
The installation process was seamless. They were so tidy, you would not even have known they had been here.
The signing of the proposal was a simple online process. They are registered with the Tasmanian Energy Saver Loan Scheme and that was part of the simple online process as well. Due to the size of our system we needed council approval. This was all done by Genr8 without us doing a thing.
It could not have been any easier. I would highly recommend Genr8 and I everybody else I know have the same opinion.

Easy Experience

The team at Genr8 done a terrific job across the board. The quotation and installation teams made it a stress free experience.

They happily would answer all my questions promptly and completed the install with a quality finish in 1 day.

Work included installation of 20 panels, EV charger and hot water timer.

Would recommend highly!!!

Great company

From start to finish, all my questions were answered, the quotes were great. I had no issues with the supplier solar quotes got in contact with for me, but i decided to do my own homework.

Its still ongoing at the moment as i am waiting on Aurora now to switch to smart meter.

Great installation

Upon request, Genr8 provided multiple quotes and they were cooperative in adjusting the proposals to suit our requirements.

They also started the installation sooner than initially planned, so, I was happy that we could have the system get exposed to more summer sunlight.

The panels looked tidy, and they put the inverter where we wanted it to be.

They also organised things with TasNetworks so I didn’t have to do anything.

Fantastic company

Choosing solar was over whelming for me with all the different companies and options out there. Genr8 were fantastic to work with and made it easy for me to decide. Very knowledgeable and understanding to my needs. Nothing was a problem for them. Prompt , tidy installation. Excellent service and highly recommend. Very happy with my solar system.

Quality from end to end

Attention to detail in the initial quote compared to other quotes and ultimately because, on price all quotes were comparable, the fact that they were local became the deciding factor.

We are also very pleased with the results and the way the installation team conducted themselves during the installation and the overall attitude. Also the quality of the installation looks much better than other nearby installations undertaken by different companies.

We had a problem, GenR8 had the solution

We had three installers quote for us, GenR8 were genuine and friendly in the process; our roof was supposedly Tin tiled sheets, which meant any drilling or cutting into it could cause a tear easily and a leak would develop so it was ill advised to work on the current roof system and replace it with Colourbond corrugated or common tiles(which the cost would far out weigh the saving of solar) When GenR8 Electrical came out to quote, they spent some time discussing this problem then after some discussion, asked to get onto the roof just to assess the roof would need replacing and when we got on the roof it became evident that the roof was actually galvanised metal and would handle solar framing install without leak as assumed. This, coupled with the friendly and open advice; along with the reasonable price made us feel comfortable with choosing them for our solar system.

All the research into the three types of solar packages was difficult; as to know what was the right decision was tough because marketing ploys and statistics being used to make any product look great, I felt confused but GenR8 did give us confidence to make a decision.
The install was done in one day and we were producing solar electricity the next day. Just professional great service.

SolarQuotes contacted three suppliers in Tasmania on our behalf. Within a day or so of being advised of the prospective suppliers Karl and Nathan from GenR8 Electrical visited our premises and provided an obligation free quote as requested. They spent over an hour discussing solar systems to establish what would be best suit our needs promising to get a formal quote to us within a couple of days. The quote arrived later that evening. Whilst evaluating the three quotes received we went back to them for clarification on a couple of matters and received a revised quote within 24 hours specifying everything we had asked for, in particular a prospective installation date.

They arrived to install the equipment a couple of days before we expected them but only after ensuring it was suitable to us. The majority of the installation was completed on the first day with the panels to be installed on the next day. The next day the weather was pretty wild but they completed the job as promised fortunately as on subsequent days the weather was considerably worse.

The system was commissioned and has worked flawlessly since that date.

GenR8 Electrical, South Spreyton is a small local company who provide excellent customer service and installation as well as competitive pricing.

I have no hesitation in recommending them to friends or anyone else looking for solar in NW Tasmania.

Shop local and you deal with the installer, not a salesman

We got three quotes via SolarQuotes and a couple of others by direct enquiry. GenR8 provided us with competitive quotes for a range of systems involving different sizes and quality of components to allow me to decide which scenario would be most cost effective for us. They were also the only supplier among those we contacted who preferred to visit us onsite and assess our situation before quoting rather than work through photographs, phone call and email.

A big plus for us was that this was a local installer and that the two electricians who run the business and perform the installation are also the ones who you deal with from initial contact, not an intermediary sales person. They have a Facebook site showing the installations they have completed, so you can judge their past work. They listened to our questions and provided us with helpful advice based on their experience, but did not pressure us into choosing one option over another. I chose a 3kw inverter and 4.6 kw of panels, not wishing to overinvest in light of Tamania's southerly latitude and very cloudy winters with short days, not expecting the panels actual output to exceed the inverter's capacity except for a few hours each day on sunny summer days.

Once we accepted the quote, the whole process went smoothly from that point, although we did have to wait 3 months from quote acceptance until installation date. We were very pleased with the quality of the installation work and the focus on doing the job well (eg positioning the inverter in the best location for shading, not close to the fusebox). The system has been operating for four weeks now and the network power company installed our new meter to record our solar feed in two days ago. The solar analytics monitoring is very helpful in allowing me to follow production and consumption as we use different appliances and the system output looks good.

On a sunny day in the longest day length month of the year we have been generating 25kwh per day, maxing out the inverter at 3kw between 9.00am and 2.30 pm. On our one day so far of rain and dull cloud, production dropped below 4kwh for the day, so it remains to be seen whether our solar system will give us very much useful production through our wet winter, short day length months.

Overall, I am very pleased with our choice of GenR8 for the installation of our solar system and would heartily recommend them.

Quality equipment installed by quality tradesmen these guys have a passion for what they do and they do it well.

Genr8 were the middle quote, just under the highest, but their panels read to be better units. They kept me up to date with the process, and I was invited to attend the installation. The two installers were NOT contractors and could not have been more helpful with advice and information. They even cleaned up after themselves and the work appeared first class, thanks guys.

Glenn was great. His advice & experience was on the money & we will be phoning him the next time we need anymore work.
