Goliath Solar and Electrical Solar Reviews

Best solar installer in SA

Highly recommended Goliath if you looking for solar system in SA. They are very reliable and knowledgeable with excellent communication and services from beginning to end. I don't have to worry about anything, they assisted to organise smart meter changing. Installation team are great, took about 7 hours to completed the job. Very happy with it. Show additional information

Great service from initial inquiry to the installation.

From the initial inquiry regarding getting solar Tom and the team at Goliath have been nothing but outstanding.
The installation went ahead on the date and time provided, and the installer Chris gave a complete run down on the system, from the inverter to the Mobile App and Web monitoring upon completion.
They also went above and beyond by checking all my roof tiles, and repairing any damaged/chipped ones.
It was recommended to my to use Goliath by family and friends who have used their services, and i will also be recommending them to anyone. Absolutely easy process, just wish i had it installed earlier!

Great service, highly recommend

The entire process, from obtaining quotes, installation and the aftercare was great. From our initial contact with Goliath, we were treated respectfully and fully informed about our choices. Daniel was very patient and more than happy to answer questions. No pushy phone calls, just very professional and objective advice. The installation itself was smooth, the team came and did their job without any dramas and were courteous and professional.
Service was/is impeccable, we were always kept up to date with progress and feel reassured any future concerns will be addressed appropriately and promptly.

Great guys, quality install!

I've used Goliath Solar & Electrical for two systems now, the first at my primary residence and the most recent at our new holiday house. They have great pricing and product knowledge and are a pleasure to deal with! Show additional information

Professional and reliable. Excellent customer service!

Goliath Solar and Electrical are true professionals. There was no mystery behind the sales and quoting process; all key terms and technical details were patiently explained. The pros and cons behind the options available were also discussed. The installation was hassle-free. The team arrived on time and worked diligently to complete the job within one day. The team were able to answer any questions I had during the installation process. After the install, Goliath's customer service was excellent. They helped me navigate through the final procedural steps to ensure I was able to start to enjoy the benefits of the system. Show additional information

Nice Bunch of Lads

All contact with Goliath Solar from initial call to job complete was done with a helpful, friendly, professional and 'nothing is too much trouble' kind of attitude which was very much appreciated. These guys did a great job for us and we have no hesitation in recommending them to others. Show additional information

Great communication throughout process and timely delivery

Ben was extremely patient with us while choosing our system and sent us several quotes with different options prior to us making our final choice.

Installation team arrived 10min prior to agreed time and started promptly at 7am.

Overall a very positive experience

Excellent from start to finish

I researched a number of firms, and chose Goliath due to the clear and factual information we were given. The final design for our 6.6 system, made the best use of our roof line.They were open to discuss the pros and cons of a number of cells, without pushing any one brand. Installation was fantastic; really hot day, four people arrived exactly on time, talked me through who was going to do what, and had the system up running in no time. Their work space was left in a better condition than when they arrived. All the grid connection and paperwork had been done, and I was given a 30 minute information session on how everything worked, the app to download to monitor our system etc. It made complete sense even to a non techno person like me.

Goliath: “ A Giant in the Solar System”

Practical design to suit the specific site,high quality products used, ongoing and clear communication throughout the process, flexibility with time frames, and highly efficient and diligent technicians during installation. A pleasure to do business with this company. Highly recommended. Show additional information

5 Star service from start to finish

Excellent experience with Goliath Solar from initial contact through to final installation and after-sales support. The team at Goliath provided frank and valuable advice before installing an 8.5 kW system for us on a new build. They communicated regularly, were easy to get in touch with and turned up on time, every time!

After initially contracting for the install, we discovered that several work colleagues and neighbours had had their solar systems installed by Goliath as well. All of their experiences had been as positive as ours and the after-sales service had also been excellent. We have peace of mind that our home has a quality system, for the right price and will be looked after for years to come.

Quality, service, integrity

My nephew highly recommended Goliath to me. He worked with them as an apprentice and told me that few other companies held themselves to such high standards of service, integrity and workmanship. No tricks, no gimmicks, no shortcuts. Just a company that takes the investment in solar as serious as you do and is focussed firmly on being there for the long haul.

All the reviews confirmed this so I made the call.
Even with that vote of confidence, Goliath exceeded my expectations.
Daniel was my point of contact and he kept me informed of every step, answered all my questions and made himself accessible.
He quoted and re-quoted each time I changed my mind, which was a few times.
He did as much as they could with the supplier and distributors leaving me to do very little.
The job is now done, the quality of the work excellent and I have had the first of a number of post work follow up calls.
Goliath is not the cheapest, but I can confidently say they are up there with the best.

Great work from the people in the office and the install team.

Very good and professional service from Daniel, who helped set things up before the install, and he rang afterwards to make sure I was satisfied with the system and to answer any additional questions I may have.

Chris and the team did a great job with the install, first confirming where I wanted the inverter and that I wanted the whirlybirds and TV antenna removed to reduced shading. They installed the large system on my tile roof without breaking any tiles.

Highly recommend Goliath Solar

Very happy with the information provided by Ben and the team at Goliath from the first phone call through to install. The follow up and continued contact was excellent. They held an install date for us throughout our new home build to avoid lengthy delays once ready for installation and held the price quoted months earlier also. The install was on time and went smoothly. Very happy with our system and on day 2 it seems to be performing perfectly. Show additional information

Great installers with fantastic customer service.

Goliath worked with me to get the best system for my area and listened to our needs. As our house is a heritage listed property, they were patient and worked with us to get building approval. Fantastic final result, the panels can hardly be seen from the street and the installers were prompt and professional. A special shout out goes to Ben for helping us all the way. We would highly recommend them. Show additional information

Great Service From Day 1

The customer service we received from Goliath Solar and Electrical from our first contact with them and right up to the commissioning of the system and subsequent follow up has been fantastic. I sent numerous emails with questions, numerous phone calls with more questions, and Tom from Goliath Solar and Electrical always got back to me on a timely manner, even on a Saturday afternoon. The installation team were fantastic, they showed up early and were extremely efficient in getting the system installed. After the system had been installed they left the premises clean and tidy. Chris and his team did a great job. Goliath Solar and Electrical organised all the relevant connections and meter services required. An all round great experience in dealing with the entire team at Goliath Solar and Electrical. Show additional information

Excellent experience

Goliath Solar is a dynamic and very efficient company which provided excellent service from start to finish. We got terrific value for money with non metropolitan installation of solar panels on two houses. The installation team of 7 installers were punctual, efficient, very tidy and friendly. Communication is one of Goliath's strengths - we were kept informed about plans, processes, costs, changes and installation arrangements at every step of the way across a few months. We give Goliath Solar our highest recommendatuon Show additional information

Overall a great experience from start to finish, sales, installation and follow up.

We got 5 quotes and Goliath were very competitive however most of all they gave us confidence in their knowledge and experience with solar systems. And that proved up during installation and handover. Daniel in sales and Greg in installations were excellent. Will recommend Goliath to friends and family. Show additional information

High quality work and great to deal with!

Was recommended Goliath by a neighbour and from the get go they were extremely helpful and professional, they sorted getting out meter changed all the way through to giving us ideas about the best value electricity plans. Getting a quote was extremely quick and on the day of install the guys were puctual and professional and made the whole install an easy process. Can not recommend enough! Show additional information

Great system, great team.

Everything went smoothly!
Goliath Solar were quick to get in touch as soon as I requested a quote. We spent about 20 minutes of the phone discussing solar and what sort of system would be appropriate.
The site visit was booked in quickly, and the Electrician was very knowledgable.
The installation was booked in soon after. The team that turned up were punctual, pleasant and were very efficient at getting the job done.

From start to finish, the entire team - from the people in the office ensuring all the background admin work in carried out correctly, to the Technicians carrying out the installation work - Goliath Solar were professional and courteous.

I cannot recommend Goliath Solar highly enough.

The installers, the most important part where fantastic, 3 people who where friendly, kind and knowledgeable and explained everything, biggest part was they where tidy.

Goliath Solar and Electrical - a great experience in customer service and solar installation

Goliath Solar and Electrical were recommended by friends, who recently had gone through the whole process of solar installation. My initial enquiry via email was promptly replied to via email, followed by a phone conversation by the sales person. He explained the set up of the company, and offered 3 quotes based on the budget of the different panels available, including information on the panels, inverter and product warranty.
After some researching into the various quotes provided by six different installers (including 3 from solarQuotes, our electric supplier, and a local installer and manufacturer), we decided to go with Goliath.
The whole process was easy, from the initial quoting, acceptance and installation. Questions were promptly answered via text or email. The installation (7 Nov 2019) went without mishap. The 3 installers from the company, were punctual, polite and efficient in the installation. Having an 1980's house, I was told a few tiles could be (and were) broken, so was advised to buy some second hand ones (10), which I did from a supplier in Lonsdale. I was very pleased that the installers tidied up afterwards, and took away everything including the broken tiles. The electrician explained how to operate the inverter, monitor production and usage using the Fronius smart meter (bought at an extra cost) - via the internet (to which we had to register).
Goliath helped to organise the installation of a new meter, advising how long everything would take, grid connection and feed-in tariff we could get from our supplier. The new meter will be installed next week, and then we can start to use our solar and generate electricity.

Fantastic Customer Service

Found Ben @ Goliath to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable, he gave me various options when quoting & was happy to discuss these.
Goliath prewired our house during the build to minimise any potential issues & although our build time dragged on they never seemed pushy,
Would happily recommend them to anyone.

Great job - everything as expected

Had a few emails and phone calls with Tom to determine the best system and get all the admin work done. Chris and his team were here on time and did a great job - everything is up and running and looks neat and tidy. Show additional information

Great customer service, installation & follow up.

From the first contact with Ben at Goliath, we felt extremely comfortable that we were dealing with an expert consultant who really knew the product and understood our requirements. At no time did we feel pressured to accept what we were being told and we were actually encouraged to research other opinions.

Once we settled on a quote from Ben, the whole process from approvals to installation went like a well oiled machine. On the day of install, Chris and his team arrived exactly on time, were extremely professional in their work and answered any questions we had immediately. ( Thanks Chris and your team.) Our system was up and running about 4 1/2hours after the guys arrived and has been working like clock work since. We could not speak more highly of the service we received and continue to receive from Goliath and do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone contemplating installing a solar system.

No fuss installation.

Goliath was recommended to me by my neighbour. Sales and quote was done over the phone with Ben, no time wasting and upselling like some other's. What I liked the most was the grid layout on my roof as it was a difficult one to do. Their price was better than other's with the Fronius inverter, is it worth the extra money over the goodwe ? guess I will never know. before the install one of his installer's came out and got up on the roof, did a measure up, made some minor changes to the grid layout so that everything went smoothly on the install which it did.
Goliath was very professional from start to finish and I would highly recommend them.

Great job

I contacted several solar companies for quotes and found Goliath the easiest to work with. I was happy with the quote, the installation was done really well and exactly according to plan, and Goliath walked me through every step in the process. Their customer service was excellent.

No need to look further in SA.

After some research to find the company with the best reputation for quality workmanship and great customer service here in South Australia it didn't take long for it to become apparent Goliath Solar were the only way to go.
Ben the solar consultant was extremely helpful and friendly, stepping me through the options and technical details of every system available, and after I'd decided on the system that suited my needs there was constant communication and guidance all the way until the installation which was done only a little over 3 weeks after the original quote! Very fast!
Everything was arranged by Goliath, including applying for the meter to be changed over as well.
The installers did a great job, very neat and tidy and cleaned up like the weren't even there once the job was done.
I was assisted all the way through from quote, to hardware choice, system installation and software system monitoring by friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff who all work directly for the company which gives great peace of mind.
The only area which could be slightly improved was communication between the various teams about small details like movement of Foxtel dishes etc as there was some confusion regarding this matter.
All round my experience with Goliath Solar was of a very high level of satisfaction in every aspect, a real pleasure after dealing with no so great contractors in the past.
They actually made the whole process feel easy and a pleasure, and now we look forward to reaping the benefits of solar well into the future.
