Goliath Solar and 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:
All providers offered very similar systems for similar pricing. Show additional information
Could not have asked for any better service. Ben was beyond helpful and answer any questions I had. Installation was very quick with the system being installed in less than one week once I gave the the approval. I had a choice to have the Canadian Solar panels they recommended or to upgrade the panels to Q Cells which I took.
The tradies where very professional and were not sub contractors. After they had finished everything was cleaned up and you would not have know they were there.
I would highly recommend Goliath Solar and Electrical.

Installation went smoothly, and rapidly. Pre-sale there was a good site visit and subsequent layout design (something missing from other quotes). Ben and the installation team were highly professional and easy to deal with. Show additional information

Absolutely brilliant service - great communication, super fast, above and beyond expectations. Easy and professional installers. Also really good price. I haven't needed any after installation assistance as everything went so smoothly but I'm sure that it will be just as quick and helpful if required. Very happy indeed. Show additional information
Fantastic experience from start to finish. Cannot speak highly enough about Goliath Electrical. Right from the quote phase, they kept me informed all the way through the process, and the installation day was absolutely painless. By 2pm my solar system was generating. Very happy with everything, would recommend these guys to anyone. Show additional information
No nocence, a most professional company offering great service and quality. They (Tom) made the process so easy, with great communication. I highly recommend Goliath Solar from my personal experience. Show additional information
I have no hesitation in recommending Goliath Solar and Electrical. I shopped around extensively before deciding to use Goliath Solar and Electrical. I found them to be the friendliest and most efficient in quoting and dealing with my questions. Their installation team arrived on time and worked tirelessly to install the system neatly and cleaned up leaving no trace. Goliath Solar and Electrical provided all compliance documentation as required promptly and committed to providing ongoing support as required. It has been a pleasure to deal with them.

I would highly recommend Goliath for their Solar Systems.They were very informative, punctual and professional throughout the process.
David called to the house, measured and discussed layout prior. Installation day was busy, but Chris and the boys did not stop until all 30 panels
were fitted to the two storey house. Many thanks to Tom, David, Chris and the boys for doing a great job

Great service, knowledge and professionalism dealing with me and my questions

They designed a system specific to our conditions, situation and budget

Organised everything, the smart meter from the power company, setting up the online monitoring, showed me where everything was and how it worked etc. Everything went on time and on budget

Great after sales support to call a few weeks after installation to talk about performance and any issues (there were none)

Strongly recommended

We are very happy with our solar panels, thank you! Show additional information
I went through Finn Peacocks solar quotes twice and Goliath Electrical came up both times. So I thought i'll make them my first point of contact, from my initial talks with Ben and everything from then onwards i could not be happier. Every question I had answered. Every e mail, phone call I had answered no problem. There were no delays no excuses and absolutely no B.S. Goliath is not the cheapest nor is it the most expensive but what it is, is top quality solar system and top shelf service. Don't worry about getting three quotes Goliath Electrical are the people to deal with, i do not have one bad thing to say about Ben and his team, i found the whole process from start to finish stress free. I would recommend Goliath Electrical to anyone. Honesty and integrity are hard to find these days but Goliath have it in spades. A grade company no worries. Show additional information

If you are doing research on solar want value for money quality installation expert advice you won't go wrong with these guys goliath electrical very happy. Show additional information
When I first saw the Goliath reviews, I instantly thought they were gaming the system. Surely they can't be that good. After going through the process and finally having a solar system installed that does exactly what was written on the tin, you can add me to the pile. They really are that good.
Tom and the rest of the team did what they said they would do without surprises.

Could not be happier with this process. It has been easy and we have been adequately informed of each procedure along the way. The installation process was fabulous Chris and the boys were courteous and clean. I will be recommending David and Goliath Solar and Electrical to everyone. Show additional information
Tom & the team at Goliath Solar & Electrical have provided and installed an excellent solar PV system that meets my needs perfectly. I was only after a fairly basic system, and went for 6.6kW of Canadian Solar panels feeding a 5kW Fronius Primo inverter. From a sales & service perspective, Tom has been extremely helpful and responsive to my queries. Tom & the admin team took care of all the paperwork and kept me informed of the next steps in the process at all stages. What could have been a complicated process was made easy & painless. The guys who actually performed the installation (Chris & Hayden) did an exemplary job and the end result is incredibly neat & professional. I am very happy with the end result and would recommend Goliath to anyone. Show additional information
Great service from the start. We have had high voltage issues in our street, and Tom has helped a lot. I didn't expect ongoing support after installation. Show additional information

Tom from Goliath was fantastic from the start of the process to the end. He was up-front and honest about the expected costs and timeframes, able to answer all the questions we had and was quick to return our phone calls and reply to emails. There was never a hard sell or pressure to sign up. He simply explained what solar products they offered, the different options available for our situation, the differences in cost and quality between the options, expected savings and how it all worked.

We did have one issue with SAPN being unable to install the smart meter on the scheduled date. This was due to a scheduling error by Goliath resulting in them not getting someone out to our house to install a meter isolator before SAPN came out. However, all it took was one short phone call to Tom at Goliath to fix the problem. He quickly resolved the issue and ensured we were not left out of pocket due to the error.

Sam, Anri and Jordan did a great job with installation. They arrived about 7:45am, the system was up and running by 12:45pm, and they made sure to tidy everything up before they left.

I'd definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

After a poor experience with low cost national solar supplier that took a deposit and never delivered after months, I found Goliath ranking extremely high for customer satisfaction in South Australia. They were highly responsive, came out to inspect the property and carefully worked through options before committing to a cost. Tom was great to deal with from sales and the installers were great as well. Took a lot of care to understand what I wanted and where, and then communicated through the installation day to ensure I was happy with the way the installation was done in and around the roof.

Highly recommend, thanks!

A most professional installation from sales person to finish of installation. Very quick install, polite, efficient, and conscientous installers, even tidied up all the packaging. Really impressed, nice to see a company that takes it's work seriously doing a good job and not just wanting to finish and get paid. Show additional information
System installed a couple of weeks ago, performing above expectations. Installers were quick, clean and tidy, polite and explained the inverter and meter box details thoroughly.
Solaredge online monitoring is awesome - real time, panel specific data.

The entire team were fantastic Show additional information
Everything was explained well, every promise made was delivered on, and our solar panels were up and running on the same day as the very efficient installation job by the friendly Goliath team.
We could not have asked for a better experience, and look forward to years of trouble-free solar power production from our LG panels and Fronius inverter.
We can thoroughly recommend this company for its professionalism and excellent service, and we have other friends who have found the same when using Goliath.

Awesome experience. These guys know their stuff, are easy to deal with and did everything just as stated. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to install solar! Show additional information
Tom is great to deal with. Fantastic pricing and has considered the fact that my house was just a stone's throw away from their office without me asking! Very easy to deal with and provides more information than what you ask for! Would be more than happy to recommend to everyone! Show additional information
Good honest and quality team of professionals from sale to installation. Show additional information
Great company to do business with from quote to installation and hopefully the same will continue.

Tom visited my site and did a full measure prior to quoting so we had no surprises.

The installers arrived at exactly the time promised 7:30am, worked like troopers on a nearly 40deg day and had the job finished by mid afternoon. They hid all cabling in wall cavities which I was surprised at as I was pretty sure there would be conduit due to the construction of our house. The boys cleaned up after themselves really well, the only way you would know they had been there was that they left a 10.5kw solar system on the roof.

Follow up to explain monitoring, system use and answer questions was conducted quickly post install. Tom even helped getting a good FIT and pricing from our energy supplier.

Thanks guys, I will be recommending you in the future.

The whole thing went very smoothly. Installation was done about two weeks from order and my retailer installed the smart meter a week later. And its been running like a clock since. Show additional information
