Goliath Electrical 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:
Tom from Goliath was really helpful and easy to deal with. The installation crew were great, and I'm really happy with the result. Show additional information
Goliath Solar & Electrical are fair dinkum electricians, with excellent service to boot. Solar installation went through without a hitch and was running by the end of the day. Ben, Chris and Tom all went out of their way to assist us to the best of their ability, making the process easy. Can't praise them enough, efficient polite and they knew their stuff. Show additional information
Easy to deal with from start to finish. Great quality gear at a great price. Nothing was too hard and happy to go through any questions I had. Would definitely recommend Goliath to anyone wanting to get solar installed, and I have already done so to friends/family thinking about solar. Show additional information

Ben from Goliath was an absolute professional. All the questions I had were answered well in laymen terms. Alll calls were answered promptly. Installation was very professional, on time as planned, neat, well mannered team with emphasis on treating the customer with respect and courtesy. I wanted the inverter in a sheltered garage to avoid direct sunlight and heat. The install team went out of their way to install where I suggested. Time was taken to explain system , and set up for operation on home computer. Show additional information
From the Sales Person to the tradies that installed our system, they were very good at there respective jobs and all very polite. The sale person Tom did everything I did not have to do a thing Goliath Electrical did it all. We are very very happy customers, nothing was to much trouble, some other companies we’ve dealt with could take a leaf from Goliath electricals work ethic. Show additional information
Its pretty competitive at this level of Solar (ie, quality panels and inverter), so other than small differences due to the large number of panel choices, the quotes from would be installers were pretty much the same. I felt that any of the 3 installers that solarquotes suggested would have done a very similar job Show additional information
Goliath are fantastic guys on all fronts. Quality service, great advice and a quality install. Show additional information
Very efficient. Kept fully informed all the way. Show additional information

Top quality service throughout with Tom guiding me thru a stress free specification selection and installation process.
I went from first contact with Goliath to receiving KWH feed in credits from Origin in just over 4 weeks.
I strongly recommend their services.

We're really excited to have solar, had quite a few quotes and the sales rep Luke was the right guy for all our questions we had compared to others. The on going support from him on where to get finance too. Sales rep changed and tom too was very good and helpful thru the installation and onwards so far. The boys came to install and were very professional, neat and tidy. Cant say a bad word about any of the process. Great job Goliath Electrical ???????? Show additional information
Goliath Electrical is a very professional company with friendly staff and I was kept up to date at every stage. All paperwork was handled quickly and efficiently. Thank you, Luke, Tom, Sam, and installation crew for your great service. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone. Show additional information
Tom and his team were the third business to respond, but they made up for it when doing their first site visit to understand our needs and our property. They were easy to deal with, happy to respond to any question, and open to options on a variety of brands, which I found other companies were less open to consider.

I also gained quotes from 3 other suppliers not given through Solar Quotes, and only one of them was close to getting my business. One was really expensive on a lesser quality system, one was a sales organization (say no more) and the other was a locally owned business who was good, but wasn’t open enough to considering brand options.

Overall, all the businesses recommended to us through this website gave quality and honest information which assisted greatly in our steep learning curve and I would’ve done business with any of them.

Tom was engaged from very start and continues to do so after installation. Communication was excellent throughout the process and he was happy to answer any queries we had at any time. The guys who did the installation were all friendly and the job went ahead without a hitch. Thaelen who led the team was very informative throughout the installation and let us know what was going on at important parts of the install. Their work was unobtrusive, neat and clean. I would recommend Goliath very highly to anyone who is looking to install solar in metro Adelaide. Show additional information
I think the true sign of how good a business is shows only when you have a problem. This is the second system I have had Goliath install (moved house where the first system was installed and worked perfectly from the start) and unfortunately the inverter shorted out and had to be replaced. Tom and David could not have dealt with this in a more professional way. They kept me updated, got it fixed asap and kept at it until they worked out the underlying issue and it was all running perfectly. I was happy with them before but the fact there was a problem and I didn't have to have a fight to get it fixed or chase them up to do it was amazing and so unexpected these days. Highly recommend them. Show additional information
From the first contact we received from Goliath their customer service was exceptional throughout. They provided us with fantastic guidance and advice around our options that was focused on what would be best for us and always did so in a totally open, honest and transparent manner. We could not speak more highly of the Goliath team and their excellent customer service, especially Tom and the installation team of Sam, Jordan and Josh. Only a couple of hours after the installation was completed we received a call from Tom to ensure all was in order, explain what we needed to know about our new system and reinforce Goliath's commitment to their ongoing support. Goliath are truly focused on looking after their customers' needs and forming a genuine partnership throughout your solar journey. Show additional information
Great service & fantastic job on a very difficult install. Also good after sales service, I would definitely recommend Goliath. Show additional information
Everything went smoothly as planned. Installation efficient. Training on using the battery and software was great.
The system has performed beautifully. It’s great to have an app on my phone to monitor the inputs/outputs and battery.
During a recent blackout I was happy as Larry with my fridge, microwave, lights, TV and ceiling fans all working.

Very happy with the overall solar experience with Tom and his team at Goliath Electrical. Very professional with everything from start to finish. I would thoroughly recommend Goliath Electrical to anybody considering a Solar system install here in SA. A+++ Show additional information
Tom was very helpful and prompt with all correspondence and worked out a great solution for my east/west roof.
The install team was very professional and cleaned up after themselves and the system is now working great.

I generally dread tradies as the sales pitch can be great, but after you've signed and paid a deposit, they mess you around and some nasty looking, unprofessional people do the work and leave a mess & damage your home.

If you care about your property and you don't want any hassles or headaches you should go with Goliath.

After 4 weeks still awaiting Energy Australia to install smart solar meter Show additional information
Customer service was fantastic, I dealt with Tom right form start he gave honest advice (including against getting PV system initially due to shade issues) and kept me informed of the process all the way through which was actually really straight forward and painless. The install guys were good, efficient, left very little mess and they were more worried about the aesthetics than we were.

I will recommend Goliath to others.

Ben was very helpful, informative and patient. He guided us through the Process and gave good advice when asked. At no time did he try and manipulate our thoughts.Head installer, Thaelan, and his happy crew were the most efficient and skilled team I have witnessed in years. The overall experience for us was just so hassle free and relaxing.I will recommend these guys first every time. Show additional information
Very gratefully for your guidance throughout the experience. Without your expert imput I doubt very much that we would have gone ahead with the solar as were receiving a lot of conflicting information. We now hopefully have a good system to help decrease out electrical costs for the future we have passed your name and and contact details on to other friends. Show additional information
Very happy with service from Goliath electrical. Great communication from first quote to install. Thanks guys. Show additional information

Very impressed with the whole process made it easy without being pushy. I did have an electrical problem a couple of months after installation and the only change in that time was the installation of the system. I called the salesperson and queried the issue and they sent an electrician to inspect the job on the same day. Turns out it had nothing to do with them but they diagnosed the problem for me. Exceptional Service !!! Show additional information

The whole experience was hassle free and explained in simple terms. Everything went like clock work and installation on a rainy day still went ahead. i can highly recommend Goliath electrical. Show additional information
Tom and the boys at Goliath were a pleasure to deal with. Tom replied with a quote next day then Tom came out for a site inspection a few days later. He ran through some different suggestions for panel placement to get the best results and fitted 6.65kW of Q Cell panels with a WiFi Fronius 5kW inverter with a 5+5 year warranty. Other so called cheaper installers quoted more for the same equipment even though they advertise thousands of $$$ cheaper on less quality components mainly chinese junk and to be honest the panel placement from these guys sitting in their call centre was ridiculous and would only generate late arvo and spoil the look at the front of the house when it wasn't needed, also some of these companies even suggested they had been installing for years but a simple ABN check reveals how long they were registered for. The system was pretty well much installed from the first quote till installation in under 5 weeks. While I was still receiving emails for quotes from other companies Goliath had installed the system. All the crew were friendly and polite and the installation took as Tom said 7.30am - 3pm. I have full confidence in Goliath if the system happens to have issues that the repair will be done ASAP as they receive an email from Fronius if the system has an issue aswell. I have no hesitation in recommending Goliath to anybody when you've tried the REST for a quote try the BEST. Goliath Solar & Electrical. Thanks a lot to Tom and the boys. We're making 37+kWh per day so far on the sunny days and summer isn't even here yet. Cheers.... Show additional information
Couldn't be happier with the service from Goliath. This was one of the first companies to contact me via the 3 quotes process from Solar Quotes. Ben was very knowledgable about the product, and was very patient in talking me through my many questions. Although I had done some research, I needed to understand oversizing which I had been warned about being a bad thing, and he explained the benefits of this and made me feel comfortable going with it.

He kept me informed every step of the way, unlike many companies who need to be hounded once the deposit is paid. The install team arrived on time, and by early afternoon the job was completed. They left everything spic and span, and Sam took the time to show me how to use the app etc. Ben also offered to to go through my first energy bill with me when I receive it, to ensure I understand how to calculate the savings/return.

I highly recommend Goliath. They are a down to earth team, who know their stuff and deliver as promised. Which is not so common these days.

It has been very easy to transact business with Goliath. After reading through good reviews about the company, I did not hesitate to go with them for solar system installation and upgrade. You can tell by their service that they are not after your money. They give practical and sound advice. They have gone over and beyond what is expected, calling clients on weekends and after-hours and communicate easily with text/email and phone calls. Show additional information
We built a new home and had solar panels installed with Goliath Electrical. Tom was very accommodating to the changes in our build schedule which we really appreciated. We were able to move straight into our new home with the panels already installed so we immediately were able to benefit from them.
Our new home is much larger than our last with a lot of appliances and a 20KW air-conditioning unit. The cost of running this house hold for electricity (and gas combined) is cheaper than running a small rental unit. This is due to the solar panels as well as the design of the house (in terms of window orientation and good insulation).
We also got quotes from other companies, some of them were cheaper and more expensive. Goliath offered very high quality panels for a reasonable price which is why we decided to go with them. They are good value for what you pay.
Tom was great with before after service installation. He is very informative in helping us to make the best decisions for our needs and always responds very promptly to any questions or queries we have - even months after installation. Highly recommended.

Using the Solar Quotes web site and then working with the 3 companies provided made for an easy experience. All 3 companies were good but Goliath Solar and Electrical provided the best price for the products and made the whole process as easy as buying a loaf of bread. Show additional information
Goliath was the first business to contact me after submitting my request for a quote. Ben talked me through all the jargon and was quick to come out and inspect the roof. He talked me through the benefits of oversizing the panels to get the benefit of the full 5kw. As mentioned above, their quote wasn't the cheapest of the three I received but I felt it was the best value as it provided 5 extra panels compared to the cheapest quote.
Installation of the solar system was delayed due to delays in the construction of my house, but when it was finally installed, Dave and the guys showed up right on time at 7:30am and had the system installed and generating power by around midday.
I highly recommend Goliath Electrical for solar panels.

Very happy to recommend Goliath electrical for Solar installation. We have worked with them to plan and complete a full installation in two stages 12 months apart. Sales staff are very knowledgeable and helpful as we planned the system installation, panel orientation and reviewed various options to suit our needs. The installation team were first rate, a young but top notch installation team leader. Show additional information
Great experience from start to finish, went the extra mile a few times to look after me. Could not speak more highly of Goliath. Show additional information
Most impressed with Goliath from first meeting with Ben who was patient, thorough and explained our options with pros and cons of each. He answered all our questions and once we decided to go with Goliath he kept us regularly informed as to where things were at in preinstallation and what we needed to do to meet requirements. The timeline he gave us for installation to occur was adhered to. On install day the guys arrived promptly and the job was completed efficiently. We have a terracotta roof and were worried about damage as they are very brittle tiles but only 4 were cracked which I think is wholly acceptable. They replaced them with spares we had on hand. Once finished Sam, the electrician, explained how the system worked including installing the link to monitor the smart meter very clearly. He also left his card so that we could call him if any issues arose. Worksite was left clean and tidy. System working before they left.
My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Goliath for any solar needs.
