Glen Clark and Co Solar Reviews

We follow up with all reviewers after 12 months to see how their system is going since it was installed. These are all the reviewers who have responded to our 1 year follow up:
We had our system installed around 18 months ago and the whole process was very easy, yet thorough and informed. Glen's installers did an excellent job and it hasn't missed a beat. Highly recommend. Show additional information
Glen is a very upfront and honest guy. everything was fast and professional. Show additional information
I went to several suppliers to get quotes and some returned with quotes (4 did but 1 didn't). I chose Glen Clark because of reviews in Whirlpool forums and from your website. He was rather hard to get hold of. He supplied me the most comprehensive quote with indication of where the solar panels will be located and he did his best to align the panels to the North direction given the limited roof space. Also in the quote, he provided me the calculation of the payback period and how much annual solar generation from the system. He also came to do a site visit to confirm the order and answer all my queries. My system consists of LG NeON 2 335W and Enphase IQ7+ microinverters. Show additional information
Choosing to install solar is not just a financial decision its about quality, service and judgement about reliability. Glen Clark has provided excellent service and responsiveness with no heavy sales tactics. Show additional information

Glen was very helpful a provided 4 quotes in the end. Giving me options to choose which suited me best. Compared to other quotes for same high end equipment. He was by far the cheapest Show additional information
I very much appreciated all of the information provided by the Solar Quotes website. It felt like a one stop shop for all the information I needed and it seemed trustworthy. I world recommend Solar Quotes to anyone else starting out looking at getting solar panels but not knowing much about it. Although I went with a supplier other than one suggested by Solar Quotes, I feel that Solar Quotes did very much help me to implement my plan to get solar panels, and within a relatively short time frame too.

I had panels and battery storage with backup installed. Glen and installers were very helpful throughout the process from design to installation and through to ironing out minor configuration issues after installation. Very quick to supply quote and arranged install within a couple of weeks. Show additional information

Well done Finn, you have a very valuable service. I'll be reading your blog as battery prices come down. That will be the next thing. As a retired woman I could never have gone through this process by myself and made the right decisions, without the information on your site. Keep up the good work. All the best.

Glen took the time to explain exactly how the system would be installed and didnt overestimate the percentage of usage that the system would cover which enabled a more accurate payback calculation. Show additional information
I did a lot of research on installers before choosing Glen Clark - key factors included their ratings online as well as them supplying a range of quality hardware (including both string and micro inverter systems). Glen was very knowledgeable and provided useful advice when prompted without being pushy. He visited the site and quote provided was detailed but clear - with 2nd alternative provided later on request. I ended up going with Enphase S270 microinverters and LG Neon 320W panels. The installers were efficient and friendly, and the system has performed faultlessly so far (~4 mths in). The application process involving elec retailer was handled efficiently. The Enphase user interface I have found really useful to analyse both usage, production and net energy export. I have no hesitation in recommending the installers. I'm also grateful to Solarquotes as a great resource for learning all about solar! Show additional information
Glen Clark provided me with the most detailed, most informative quote. Show additional information

I found your solar checklist very useful. I went with a supplier not through solarquotes. I contacted them based on the positive reviews on Whirlpool forum. He proactively offered to come down and check to provide a quote (which I wasn't really expecting but I appreciated). The price quoted by Glen Clark was up to $1500 cheaper for same system quote by 2 other suppliers from solarquotes. I also found Glen Clark to be not pushy whereas one of the suppliers was too pushy and called far too many times to follow up. Show additional information

Glen offered very good alternatives to systems available. He was a bit slow with the initial inquiry but afterwards was very quick to prompt with his replies. Would definitely recommend him to anyone :) Show additional information
I found Glen Clark to be very informative. All my questions were addressed patiently and answered to my satisfaction. The installation was extremely well organised and went smoothly. Paul and Tristan were great. I would highly recommend Glen Clark Solar. Show additional information

I went with Glen Clark after reading up some other reviews on your website and the forums

Re the installers recommended by your site -
* One was over priced for the same system Glen Clark provided
* Another did not have the system i was after
* & the other - did not contact them as they took to long to initiate first contact

After meeting with 2 of 3 of the recommended installers by Solar Quotes, I decided not go with them. One of them priced their systems with a significant premium and the other did not have a system that I was after.

Read some other reviews about Glen Clark and decided to get in touch.
Initial response was a little slow, but after the onsite visit by Glen himself, things start moving quickly.

Installation took place within in a week of accepting the quote.
Despite weather challenges, his team did a fantastic job with the installation and were consistently friendly and helpful.

Top notch service and competitive pricing!

Glen and I discussed my list of requirements and installed exactly the system I was looking for. 5.61Kw is the result. His electrician background meant he was very knowledgable regarding the electrical connection and requirements. His team of installers left the install clean and tidy with no exposed wiring/conduits. Very happy. Show additional information

As a buyer one needs to put a lot of work into the decision process, and its difficult to cover all bases the first time round. Actually installed a 5.7 kW system. Show additional information
Had an issue with the placement of the panels but that was fixed, other than that everything was great. Show additional information
Glen didn't BS me or try to up sell on anything, and he provided me with honest and forthright advice. The quality of work his team did was clean, neat and professional. The panels on the roof look fantastic too. Glen got absolutely everything spot on, first time. I'm extremely pleased with the focus Glen gave to my requests and the outcomes we achieved. Thanks.

At all times, Glen was courteous, helpful, informative and quick to respond to any query or request. He was the only guy willing to quote on the exact system I wanted - without trying to push me down a preferred path of a predetermined panel supplier or inverter supplier - I really appreciated that. His team were all friendly and worked efficiently throughout. We had a couple of teething problems - but one was very minor (and resolved immediately) and the other was a hardware issue that was not Glen's fault and which he had one of his guys devote 2 hours of time to resolve. I'm very glad to have found Glen (via Whirlpool and your website) - and enjoying my new solar system. Show additional information

I love the service from Glen Clark & Co. It was amazing what they did and quote. I will go back as a customer again. The company is highly recommended. Show additional information
Glen Clark is organised and efficient; he understood what I wanted and didn't try to oversell. The installation team did a great job too. Very pleased.

Essential Solar were a complete waste of time - didn't read what was asked for, didn't follow through with proposals, but simply delayed the whole process by a fortnight.

Didn't hear from EnviroGroup.

So I didn't really get the chance to compare quotes, but nevertheless am happy with the outcome.

Glen responded within 24 hours to Solar Quotes' request to supply a quote to extend our exist ting solar electricity system.
He asked one question then generated a quote according to my parameters within 48 hours.
He made an appointment for an on-site inspection and arrived on time and properly briefed.
We discussed use patterns, installation costs, my current energy purchase tariffs and 2017+ feed-in tariffs.

Glen recommended no extension to our existing system on cost recovery grounds.
He would have liked my money.
I would rather spend it on a flight to Hamburg or Paris or ...

I wanted a SolarEdge system but most installers did not sell it or charged exorbitant prices. Glen installed whatever equipment I asked for at a fair price and answered all my questions, as well as provide a variety of quotes for different brands and configurations. Only problem was the system did not work after the installed! Took over a week to fix the problem but it did get fixed eventually. Show additional information
Glen visited and discussed options (last year). Then this when I revisited the idea of getting solar panels he was happy to revise his quote and discuss other options I put forward after further research. He also gets very good feedback on the Whirlpool Forums (which is where I first came across his name). Our system utilises LG 315 w mono panels and Enphase M250 microinverters.

We chose this system because we have some shading (and don't wish to remove the tree cover due to the advantages of micro-climate control) and also with the cloudy Melbourne weather the new LG mono (neon) panels plus the micro inverter system should give use a better outcome.

Great service from the beginning of obtaining a quote, to the installation and follow up paper work. Show additional information

The two companies that you referred - Just Energy and the Mark Group were a total waste of my time. These are sales focussed organisations and did not pay much attention to what I wanted or needed.
I did get independant quotes from Solargain and Glen Clark, both of which I would recommend to others looking for solar in Melbourne.
Show additional information
I had no problems at all.

All installers providing quotes were VERY professional and seemed to be totally on top of their field.

I installed a 3.5 with LG panels and Enphase micro-inverters and am looking forward to the near future when Enphase will bring out modular battery storage that will allow me to draw shoulder /evening energy from generated power also.

We found Glen Clark the only one who kept us informed at every step.
Other installers promised something but did not follow through.

Glen was able to provide us with a detailed quote via email within a couple of days. His quote had attached an aerial view with proposed pv panel locations and expected power production figures etc.
We had Glen come out for a site visit to discuss variations to the original proposal and he was prompt and gave us a couple of alternative options
We found Glen to be professional in his approach and kept us informed throughout the whole process and would not hesitate in recommending him
