Affordable price, fast, high quality installation

The whole process of purchasing solar was a breeze with Gnowee solar. Quote was quick and very competitive. Installation was completed within 5 days of the quote. Customer service was 10/10, and is currently organising my meter upgrade with the power company.

Wonderful installation but cheeky salesman

The sales person was excellent unit I requested a consideration on the installation price due to a different system being installed
I had a quotation for a 3 strings 3,4,5.setup in 2 different locations on the roof to avoid trees shading causing lower delivery of power
I received a 2x6 set up in one location instead without my permission or any consulting
The installation was perfect but the salesman was insulting when he told me I was cheeky requesting a discount due to less wiring requirements and labour
He has not contacted me since the installation to see how I feel or how the job went only to say the installation team have the final say about the panels layout. I would have appreciated support to set up my Fronius monitoring program

Very professional

Sales and quoting was very good and understandable
The installation went perfectly - came on time no slackness near and tidy respectful and was helpful when questions weee asked
Customer service was the best - helpful respectful at all times -
Explained how it worked and also advised and showed me my damaged power board that other electrians over the past months/years should have picked up on as it was dangerous.
Extremely happy with Repersentive and the installers.

First Class Experiece

Apart from still waiting 12 days after installation for the inspector to turn the system on, Gnowee were exceptional. Horst explained everything we needed to know. His patience in taking us through the process was most appreciated. The installation process with Shennal and his team went smoothly. Assuming my system gets turned on this week, I am very pleased with Gnowee, and I highly recommend them.

Gnowee Solar review

They started my system and never finished it.

Edit 24/2/2023: The system is now installed but not how the original quote stated and not how I wanted.

Your Solar System was fully installed on 28/12/2022, and the Licensed Electrical Inspector from Solar Victoria signed off the COC on the 13th of January.

We have provided you with all documentation with your Invoice.

Thank you

Gnowee Solar were great to deal with, highly recommend

Gnowee solar we're great to deal with. Horst based in Mornington was very helpful & honest and very informative. He came out to our house and assed the site and took us through the process. They organised all connection to the grid for us which was great. I would definitely recommend Gnowee Solar if your looking to go ahead with Solar.

Professional

Gnowee Solar was not the only company we received quotes from for our solar energy system but they were certainly the most professional and stood out from the others. Warnie attended our site in person, designed our solar system and we were very impressed with the level of information, knowledge and potential savings he provided to us with his quotation submission. He was always very pleasant and accommodating to our needs and was able to answer any enquiries promptly. The installation was done with little disruption and the installers very professional, hard working and clean. Rubbish was removed when the job was completed and the installation thoroughly inspected by Warnie upon completion. Gnowee then submitted all relevant documents for connection to the grid in a very timely manner. After having dealt with Gnowee Solar from start to finish, I absolutely highly recommend them for your solar needs.

Wish we’d got solar earlier

Very simple & fast process - should have done it years ago. Fantastic knowledge and service from Horst who answered all my questions openly and honestly without arrogance or showmanship. Install was done in a day with no issues - very polite and easy going installers. Using the free PowerPal app supplied by the government (I can’t work out how to use the Inverter app - too complicated) I can see we’ve already halved our weekly energy usage from the grid. Looking forward to seeing how much we’ve saved on our next electricity bill.

Great spec not cheap but high quality.

I wanted a premium system and thought sunpower macron was the way to go. With tons of reviews from this website and others I appreciate there are many views on the subject. I ended going with rec alpha panels and a fronious inverter and was very happy with the service from gnowee solar. They were not able to supply the originally quoted panels but made a fair compromise on the alternative. The best thing was that I was was fussy about the source of the panels as I am not happy to support countries with trade sanctions against Australia. Another reputable company in our area did not listen as well and this proved to be the deciding factor.

The dreaded Covid hit on our original very prompt installation date and the reschedule was quickly arranged.

On the whole a great result.

Original Review on 01-08-2021:

Excellent and informative service

We had several quotes and two excellent sales representatives from different companies who were always willing to explain cost/benefit ratios, processes and products.
Our final selection was based on the ability of the sales person to respond to our questions and uncertainties.
The whole process was easy; the service was prompt and efficient and all communications were timely and efficient.
We are extremely happy with our choice and our solar system.

Thank you Judy for your wonderful words, we really appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review!

We’re very grateful for customers like you and will continue to service you for years to come!


8 months later we asked Judy: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

The system is meeting our expectations and we haven't paid a power bill since last winter. We hope to install a battery later this year or early next year when we change over to an electric vehicle and are very confident that our system will be the right one for this too.

Excellent installation

Was very happy with the job Gnowee did. We had two systems installed as we have two separate dwellings. The customer service was exceptional. A great product at a reasonable price. Salesman Warnie was lovely and very knowledgeable. Installation was done within a day, they turned up when they said they would. They helped organise the grid connection.

Excellent system and experience.

In addition to the 3 quotes through solarquotes, I got a fair few more, and had been doing some general research for a while. Overall the costs are pretty similar between companies when you have an idea about what panels/inverter. So for me it came down to what company I felt I could trust to do a good job.

Hence why I went with Gnowee Solar. I found that Horst was easily the most accommodating person to deal with out of the various companies. He was not pushy, understood exactly what he was doing, and happy to adjust the setup multiple times. There were a few minor issues related to the computer software not showing the roof accurately which made it difficult to determine the maximum number of panels I could fit, and this was identified on installation day. However issues happen and the most important thing is that they were quickly managed.
The installation is great and of very high quality. It was a fairly large system by usual residential standards (9.36kw) and I am very happy with the result.

I appreciate all the effort. thanks.

Overall a very good experience with Gnowee. All involved were very professional, knowledgeable and arranged the installation and then all connections promptly. We even had Worksafe come out unexpectedly during installation for a site check without any issues.

Good service but install could have been better

Panels were put into a position that didn't allow access to guttering even though there was plenty of space on the roof. Credit to Gnowee Solar though, they sent the installers back to move the panels and repair the tiles they broke.

Gnowee Solar rep in Melbourne was recommended by family friends. Quotation was simple: show me your best quote for the products you want and I’ll match it!
Was successful in getting the SolarVic grant and loan in the same round as getting the quote.
Panels and inverter (Sungrow) delivered by OneStop Warehouse two days before install.
Installation took about two weeks to get booked in; finish of the job is excellent and passed the SolarVic inspection with only a couple of minor adjustments needed to be done in retrospect (double check you’ve trimmed your cable ties!)
