Customer testimonials for Go Solar Power are available, and include the following:

“ I eventually chose Go Solar because of Peter’s quick response (actually a Sunday), his knowledge (being an electrical engineer), and the quality of his products. My brief was to use quality components and have a real neat professional installation; all of which was achieved with a minimum of fuss, and ahead of schedule. I will be adding more panels to my system very soon and will definitely be using Peter Bell and Go Solar Power.”

“ Peter Bell from Go Solar Power was an obvious choice for us. He got in contact with us within a day (the other in five and the third didn’t even bother). He was professional, informative, and explained things simply without any hard core sales pitch; just honest and straightto the point. Peter’s price was on a par with all the other companies, but his service and product was way superior to the rest. I would recommend Go Solar Power to anyone looking at getting into solar, in particular those who don’t have a full understanding of how it works.”

Go Solar Power Solar Reviews

Peter Bell made this sale. His knowledge and advice were fantastic. He came to the house, was courteous and attentive. . Never ever did he want to be pushy. On his second visit we were all ready and he said about 4 weeks but then realised we already had approval from Energex and so asked if tomorrow was good, it was so on it went. How's that for service?

Even though it has been installed for only two weeks from 20th of December 2011, the system is performing better than my expectations. The weather has been very cloudy with showers on at least four of the fourteen days, worst day was 18kwh, best day was 37kwh and averaged at 27kwh. Show additional information
Very happy with my Aurora 5000 Inverter and REC solar panels and the service Peter Bell gave me. Show additional information

Go Solar was the first company to respond.

Peter Bell was very knowledgeable and efficient, friendly and nothing was a problem.

His crew of installers arrived on time and the work was carried out faultlessly, including running the wiring out of sight and placed the inverter where we wanted it.

The roof and surrounding area was cleaned up and no rubbish was left behind.

We could not be happier.

It will be installed in 2 weeks time.
But first impression over the phone the owner himself was available to answer very technical questions because he knew what he was talking about it.

When we met to my home, he climb on the roof and check roof spaces and what was the best orientation, check the roof, and he is an engineer who could answer to more questions. He shows a passion for his work and attention to customer.
I have signed the paper work, and the next day I sent him an other 20 questions to answer in relation with more reading about the whole system. He reply to me in the next 3 days.

I have read several feed back about this company and they were all positive and show satisfaction.
The system has not been installed yet, and I'm quite happy to give me more feed back in few weeks time when it is all working.

They were quite happy to give me private contact around here from previous installations.

The comprehensive information provided by Finn Peacock (Peacock Media) allowed us to make a very informed decision about both the Supplier and the Products used.
We chose "Go Solar" as our provider/installer based on several factors:
1. Recommended by Finn Peacock
2. Impressed with Principal Peter Bell who took the time to walk carefully through all aspects of Solar Power with us and, at no time, did we feel pressured to proceed
3. Peter is a qualified Electrical Engineer which provided us with an additional level of comfort
4. Installation was completed on time (in fact we were overseas at the time) and is working perfectly.
5. Finn Peacock has confirmed that Panels and Inverter are "top of the range".
6. Based on quotes received, price was very competitive.

Overall a very positive experience and we can highly recommend the Go Solar team.

Thank you for your service. Whithout your recomendations, research materials and general information this would have been a much more difficult task.

We are very happy with the outcome.

Peter Bell from Go Solar Power was very pleasant to deal with and very knowledgable on the solar industry and systems that he supplied.
Peter rang the following day after submitting my details to Solar Quotes and came to my place late that afternoon to give me quotes on a rang of systems and explained the in's and out's of solar and the best system for my place.
Only took two weeks from paying deposit to getting the system installed and the installers are a great bunch of blokes and know there job.
Would recommend Go Solar power to anyone to get their solar system installed.

Peter was not pushy at all, he knew what he was talking about, and talked me through many questions I had prior to deciding to purchase. His technical knowledge, previous customers comments and the quality of the inverter (sma) were the reasons why we went with Peter. The installers were prompt and professional. Show additional information
This company gave a full explanation of the entire process, what to expect and was installed within a few weeks of accepting their quote. So far, everything has gone to plan, we are now waiting to be connected to the grid. Excellent service and electricians were very friendly and helpful. Show additional information
Really friendly professional Installation Team of four guys who knew their studd. They were quick, efficient and so tidy, apart from the ace panels and inverter in my home you wouldn't have known they had been there.

Sales rep Peter was fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly and unpushy worked on the best system fit for our family home.

Great overall job. I would highly recommend them.

We are very happy with the way Peter Bell handled the whole process. No pressure sales talk, quality components used and installation was very quick and professional.
I would recommend GO Solar Power (and Peter Bell) to any one that wanted a solar power system installed.

Peter Bell from Go Solar Power was the only one of three who actually came to the property and climbed on the roof with a compass to see which would be the best place for mounting the panels. Installation process was painless and organised. Peter followed up with us to make sure Energex were ready to install the meter. We were very happy with the advice received from him and the result. The information received about solar energy and energy usage was most interesting. Show additional information
Their's wasn't the cheapest price, but felt comfortable with salesperson, he was very knowledgeable and able to explain all our queries. The installation guys were very efficient, left no mess and were reassuring. Show additional information
The Rep was very helpfull and went out of his way to check out the site before I commited myself to Go Solar.

My over all experience with solar quotes web site was great i received my 3 quotes promptly .

Go Solar stood out from the other two Peter Bell was just a fantastic sales person and very knowledgeable. I'm a sale person my self and pointed out to Peter this and that I had done my research. He took this on board and didn't try to sell me on anything just supplied all the facts, answered all my questions, and left me to decide. Their price wasn't the cheapest but it was within only a couple of hundred dollars yet all the components where brand names and i was able to research the exact component he listed my self on the net .

The team to install arrive when said and where a great bunch of guys installed the system and left, i can not recommend go solar highly enough ..Cheers Steve

System up and running but not on the grid yet. Has been nearly 2 weeks since install , will wait till I get power bill to see if money well spent.As far as service and install goes it has all been no problems. Show additional information
I would definitely recommend Peter Bell from Go Solar Power. I am extremely happy with all aspects of our solar buying experience. From our initial deposit to Energex changing our meter was 8 weeks.

Our installer David Tegg from A1 Power Contracting was professional, polite and we were very pleased to have them do our installation. We chose a premium brand of Hyundai panels and a Xantrex inverter for our solar system. Just fantastic.

Peter from Go Solar has been fantastic. He was the only guy I spoke with (2 did not even contact me that I had emailed to) out of 6 different companies that I felt was not giving me the hard sell and he really knew his stuff. He gave me the details and pricing and it sold itself. He also answered any questions we had and was very good to us as we signed after the government change the rules again; he honoured the original price he gave us. His install team where excellent and very professional. They ran through everything with me and did as they said they would. Thanks very much Peter, now we just need this bloody rain to stop so we can start making some power. Show additional information

I was very happy with Peter Bell and the installers. Show additional information
Peter Bell was extremely helpful and followed up every question we had. He was willing to keep quoting on different options until we got the right combination for our needs. Installation was earlier than estimated and the installers were very professional. The system is performing above expectations.
We received 2 quotes very quickly from the 3 quotes arranged by Solar quotes and the third was to come from Omega who did provide pricing on their emails and did not return my phone calls.
I think that Go Solar provided the best quality system at a cost effective price.

The system was explained in a straight forward way with no sales pressure applied.

The installation happened as promised with no hassles and the PV array has performed slightly better than expected.

Overall a good experience.

Peter was very easy to deal with and very knowledgeable. He explained all the options available and answered any questions that I had.
The install went very smoothly & quickly with the panels being on my roof 2 weeks after I signed up. The install itself was done very professionally and cleanly and I'm very happy with the result.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending Peter to others.

We really appreciated the in depth technical knowledge that Peter from Go Solar Power brought. He has an engineering background, so was able to design a system that would work for our unusual house configuration, but also was able to explain the concept clearly to us lay people. We also appreciated the total lack of sales pitch, that he just provided us with all the figures and information and waited for us to reach our own conclusions. Show additional information
It took a long time from beginning to end (May to November) but I'm pleased that I took the time and did not rush into it. There was a problem with supply of the original panels quoted but a substitution was made in our favour giving us a slightly higher kW. Peter had no hesitation in putting me in contact with another client who had a similar system. Show additional information
Very happy with installation and Go Solar Power Show additional information
GO Solar Power All the way Show additional information

So far it has been a pleasurable experience. Even on heavily overcast days we are producing electricity. On slightly overcast days we get around 5W and have seen peaks at 5.3W, strangely on bright blue days we average 4.5W for the peak times 11-1.30pm. It is quite a thrill seeing the old meter going backwards at around the same rate that it used to spin forwards. Now that Energex* has installed the new meter we will be able to see the actual data as the meters are digital.

I have talked with neighbors who have systems and it seems that our Hyundai panels are out-performing other brands. I'm told that it may be due to the size of the cells. But on a per panel basis we are well ahead.

Interestingly having the system has made the family energy conscious. (Somewhat counter intuitive but even our energy profligate users are switching off lights etc.)

*One blip was the wait for Energex to connect the new meter but they came today and they were efficient, polite and nice.

I will wait for a few months and then probably install another much larger system on a second property. Probably a 30KW system and if that goes well another.

Having researched extensively for the last three years and actually having signed up twice before with
different suppliers/installers and then cancelling due to poor prior installation experiences, I eventually
chose Go Solar because of Peters' quick response (actually a Sunday) ,his knowledge ,(being an electrical engineer) and the quality of his products.My Brief was to use quality components and have a neat professional installation,all of which were achieved with a minimum of fuss ahead of schedule.I will be adding more panels to my system very soon and will definately be using Peter Bell and Go Solar.

1. I already had been approved for the $8000 Gov grant, had signed up with another company which I found completely unacceptable in trying to deal with them.

2. At your website I ws given 3 people to contact, Peter Bell from Go Solar Power was the promptest in replying, meeting with me, submitting a quotation along with superior quality components.

3. I had only to pay $2790 on top of the $8000 grant for my 9 panel system.

4. Another suggested supplier from my web inquiry contacted me but only some time after I had already decided to go with Peter Bell and Go Solar Power.

Can't wait for my next electricity bill.

Thank you - Monica French
