Goliath very personable, professional, honest and prompt, efficient service. Also have been providing excellent follow up. Show additional information

I wish every business was like Goliath!

From the initial contact to the completion and beyond, Goliath have been exceptional. Informative, helpful, responsive, price competitive and efficient is how I'd describe them. It was a simple, stress-free job. We are very pleased with the whole process. Show additional information
Goliath Solar and Electrical won our business for many reasons:-
- of the 3 installers, they offered the best quality inverter and panels with good product warranties (as opposed to performance warranties).
-they actually brought a ladder and tape measure and got on the roof when confirming our quote at site inspection (we have pool heating in place). One installer never completed a site inspection, the other didn't venture on the roof or take any measurements!
- they didn't harass us with "special offer" text messages and emails like one of the other installers who quoted us.
-as electricians as well as solar installers, they offered good advice re the existing pool heating and offered to move our TV antenna for us at no extra charge as part of the solar install.
- they respected my request for time and space to review the quotes and kept our agreed phone appointment.
- installation happened on time on the agreed date, installation was efficient, clean-up was great and handover thorough.
- clear communication throughout from quoting, purchasing, installation and follow-up.

I highly recommend Goliath Solar and Electrical to anyone wanting to install Solar.

Delighted with our solar system. Everything was done very efficiently. Staff all friendly and helpful Show additional information

Excellent installer. Fantastic communication and workmanship. Well done!

Goliath solar have excellent communication upfront followed by a fantastic install and setup. We have a Tesla battery through the AGL virtual powerplant and Goliath worked in really well with us to liaise with AGL to enable the install to work together. Thanks again!! Show additional information

Great installation

The majority of my dealings with Goliath solar were with Tom. He is very knowledgeable in the solar industry and was able to answer (in layman terms) any questions I had, not just about solar and the system it’s self but also about my power bill/s and also what deals were out there at the time of my installation. The installers we had were great too. Well mannered, showed good workmanship (neat & tidy work) and cleaned up after themselves.

I would highly recommend Goliath solar and have all ready told plenty of people about them with quite a few of them saying “we heard the same about them from other people”. If you are contemplating getting solar on, Give Tom a buzz, you won’t regret it.

5 stars all the way!!!

From the moment I talked to Tom from Goliath it was very informative and friendly. He gave me all the facts I needed to know and a few recommendations of different size systems. After a few more emails and a site visit we settled on a 7.8kw system at what I believed to be a very reasonable price for the quality. So far the system has been great and the live monitoring is easy to use and understand. Installation was very very professional. Both the installers were very experienced and friendly.

From start to finish Tom and Goliath handled absolutely everything. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Fantastic Installers on time and clean

Ben explained everything clearly at the quotation stage, and his quote was most acceptable.
The installers were very professional and polite, punctual, and very tidy at cleanup.
On completion Ben was on the phone to see if we were happy with how everything went.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend GOLIATH SOLAR to anyone considering a solar system.

Very professional, communicative, punctual, friendly and knowledgeable employees

We were totally satisfied with choosing Goliath Electrical for the installation of our 6.6kW system. From our initial contact with Tom Morgan to the completion of the installation took only 32 days. Tom regularly kept us informed about the whole process and took care of all the administration. The site inspection confirmed our wish to have this sized system installed. The system was installed on what was the coldest morning of the year - thank you Tom, Brad and Haydn, you deserve a medal for working in those conditions. In spite of the bitterly cold conditions, the system was up and running by 1pm. The site was left in an immaculate condition. The Canadian 315w panels blend in beautifully with the tiled roof. Goliath Electrical has a set a very high standard for the industry and we would not hesitate one moment in recommending them. Show additional information

Prompt and knowledgeable

Process well-explained, understood our needs, good communication, very efficient installation Show additional information

Clear and consistent communication. Excellent service.

We received fantastic service from Goliath Solar and Electrical. The sales manager, Tom, talked us through the process and kept us informed the whole way. The installation was completed quickly and efficiently, even during some average winter weather. The company owner even provided a follow up call after the system was installed to ensure we were happy. Easy to recommend when everything went so smoothly. Show additional information

Excellent installers

From the beginning the quoting and sales was amazing. Tom explained everything to me and was crystal clear about everything from the word go.

The installation process was great all the guys did a great job and I just let get their thing done. They arrived on time and got straight into it. They cleaned and left no mess like no one was ever here. They went through the time to explain everything to me and I couldn't have been more pleased

They got everything sorted from start to finish and I didn't have to worry about anything or do anything. Everything ran smooth from first contact and even afterwards. Highly recommended the team to anyone considering solar. Price, workmanship and after sales support has all been amazing.

Good... reliable installation and fair pricing

Ben was easy to work with. He spent time assessing and explaining the various options and gave easily understood explanations of the different costs/benefits. We made several changes from the original quote and installation timing and Ben worked to minimise any inconvenience and adjusted the quote to reflect the changes. The installers were prompt, tidy and efficient and complied with our last minute request to ensure all cabling was not visible, even though this resulted in a more complicated process with some extra cost (at no cost to us). I have not analysed the efficiency and savings as yet, but expect to get the results I expected. Show additional information

Very happy with system and customer service

Received quotes from a few highly rated installers, but customer service from Goliath stood out. Installation was tidy and well done. After smart electrical meter was upgraded, Goliath returned promptly to finish installation and setup monitoring software & mobile app. Show additional information

Professional from start to finish

The team from Goliath were excellent during the entire installation process. Tom was very informative through the whole process and gave regular updates on possible installation dates and what would occur on the day. Install team were on time, efficient and cleaned up after themselves. Panels are looking great and already generating great returns. Great local business worth supporting.

Great experience start to finish

Thanks to Tom and the guy. Fantastic service from first contacting me to fill installation. Little touches like moving my TV antenna out of the way as part of the install makes a difference. Competitive quote and a quality system. Service was the difference here though, Goliath had it in spades! Show additional information

Professional and courteous help and advice, without the hard pressure sell from the first contact.

The installation was neat and efficient with the install team helpful, polite and friendly while answering my questions and the work site was left clean and tidy. Very happy with the service to date and I'm confident that any after sales help will be freely available. Show additional information

Goliath of the Industry! Amazing service!

Goliath were fantastic and went above and beyond in every aspect! The first call from Ben was professional yet relatable and not pushy at all. There was an honest, no BS approach which has been backed up over the last year of results and no electricity bills!

The installation went painlessly, the installers were tidy, professional and even fixed an issue with one of my gutters whilst on the roof!

Would and have recommended Goliath to friends and family with all being equally impressed!

The all-weather team

Quoting process was "unpushy" and from a competent, amiable person who always was very prompt with his responses.

The installation day began at the tail-end of a near monsoon. Despite the weather the team completed our two-storey task punctually, and were at all times polite, happy, competent and helpful. If you are looking for the top team - ask for the lads that enjoy coffees with some sugar.

Customer service was excellent. We were clearly shown how to download our stats etc.

Very happy client!

I engaged 3 contractors to provide quotes for my solar and decided to go with Goliath because they had excellent communication and provided me with a very thorough explanation of the product that would be installed. Everything was completed on the timeframe they said it would be and overall very happy with the quality of installation. Would highly recommend this company! Show additional information

Excellent customer service, advice and an excellent product

Ben from Goliath was so helpful from day 1 fully explaining all my options discussing several systems and their benefits and actually coming out for a site visit. He was the only one of the companies that quoted me who actually got up on the roof and mapped the location of the panels to get the best deal we could for our roof space. The whole install process was streamlined and so easy. The installers from Goliath were hard working, thorough explaining the whole process as they did each stage and they were a great bunch of blokes. Ben then helped with the switching of the meter when Origin were giving us a hard time. Overall for advice after sales service and a quality product Goliath stand out as one of the best companies I have dealt with for anything. Cannot recommend them enough. SO good to find a solar company I can trust and know I wont be left without advice in the future. Show additional information

Professional team

I had 6 quotes all up and Tom from Goliath was the most helpful and professional. He explained everything in a way that I could understand.
He made all the arrangements with my electricity provider to change my meter.

The installation team were here at the exact time Tom said they would be, and the installation was fast and hassle free.
I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Goliath Solar and Electrical.

Installation Perfection

The guys at Goliath Solar were extremely knowledgeable on solar and gave great advice on the configuration of the installation. Because some of the panels would be seen from the road at the side of my house I was very fussy on the look of the installation. David suggested we go with black panels and rails and keep the panels in a block formation to appear as unobtrusive as possible. I'm extremely pleased with the final result. The tradesman were early to site, extremely professional and left the job neat and tidy (you wouldn't have known they were there). Overall i could not fault any aspect of my dealings with Goliath Solar and Electrical. Show additional information

Professional Installation and Good Value

Dave and Ben at Goliath Solar and Electrical were very prompt and professional, they worked hard to ensure I was kept informed and was happy with the whole process. After months of researching solar systems and installers the final process of having the system installed by Goliath Solar was incredibly easy as they brought a large crew of guys to install the 42 panels on my two story roof in a matter of hours. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending this Adelaide company as their service and their products were all of a very high standard. Show additional information

Excellent installation @ Port Noarlunga

Excellent organisation, from the quoting, advice through to the installation and post installation support. Extremely knowledgeable and provided great advice. It has been a pleasure to obtain our system from an organisation that is very professional, caring and well organised. We went with a Fronius inverter and Qcells panels, and I am pleased with the power generated in the current winter weather. I can hardly wait for spring and summer to come.

Best in Adelaide

I had 4 quotes, Goliath was the last one. From the first phone call it was very clear Tom knew his stuff, he came for a site visit and got on the roof to inspect it, he was the only one of all the site visits that did. He then supplied me a detailed quote that compared to the others but also addressed a way around my shading issues and also recommended installing the panels landscape which let us put up 8 more. Install was done on time in very poor weather conditions but the Install team lead by Sam did a faultless job.

We had a few queries about panel placement and my wife not wanting them visible from the street and Sam reworked it and the result was prefect. It was connected and running when they left and you'd never know they were there unless you look on the roof.


Its my first day with it running today, 15 deg, overcast winters day. I had hoped for 4-5kW in the middle of the day as forecast but was blown away with 100% 10kW readings before lunch time. Thank you Tom, Sam and the team, true professionals, rare these days. Cant recommend the highly enough AAA+

Ben Gordon was great from the start discussing our needs and options, he has a wealth of information and knowledge, which armed us with information, enabling us to make a good decision, he wasn't pushy. We felt for what we could afford, we bought a really good system.
We had an excellent team on the day of installation, all went smoothly, couldn't fault them.

Excellent experience

We needed to get a faulty inverter replaced. A well know energy company gave us a very high quote for the job so I called Goliath for a second opinion. I drive past their office every day so thats how I got the contact. Goliath quote was a lot lower and from my initial contact to getting the work done was literally 3 days, including time to source the new inverter. They were very professional, punctual, friendly and knowledgeable when I asked questions during the installation. Overall an excellent experience and I would highly recommend Goliath to anyone looking for solar installations and service. Show additional information

Value for money with exceptional service

We did our due diligence with a range of solar companies and after many weeks of intensive research we are very happy with our choice to select Goliath Solar and Electrical to install our solar system.

They are proudly South Australian and provided us with high quality solar products at a very competitive price.

We are very pleased with the result. There were no hidden costs and the system is working exactly as anticipated.

Tom was the ultimate professional and provided us with excellent service from start to finish. He was very informative and took the time to explain the system in detail and was very patient with my numerous phone calls and emails for more information. We were constantly kept up to date with the progress of the quote and installation. He does a site check and gets on the roof to work out the best configuration of the panels.

The installation team AKA the “A Team” consisting of Chris “The Master” (nice bloke considering he was a Crows supporter) and his two capable apprentices Hayden and Liam all had a great friendly attitude. They arrived on time and the installation proceeded quickly and neatly without any fuss but with skill and consideration of any request we made. They did a fantastic job and cleaned up after they finished.

It was basically a stress free smooth process. We would highly recommend Goliath Solar and Electrical if you want value for money with exceptional service… great work guys.

An A Grade installer that you can trust!

The team at Goliath made the whole solar experience very pleasant for my family. They were honest in their dealings and explained every step of the process. On the day of the installation the boys were clean, non intrusive and made sure we were happy with the planned work. The install was done with minor disruption to our power supply and at the end of the day the boys made sure we understood how the system was working. Our system included a solar and battery pack. We are now off grid! If you are thinking of solar or battery it was worth our while getting a quote from Goliath. Show additional information

Excellent Service

After going with Goliath from a referral the whole process had been excellent from the first quote to the install it has been perfect which is unusual in today’s world of false promises and amateur businesses this was professional and easy
The price was keen and after blogging the product the components are quality very impressive

Great Installation. Fantastic Experience !

The quoting process went quite smoothly. There were a couple of iterations but the communication and follow up was very good and I thought the quote was reasonably competetive. The installation went very well. Our system was quite large (15 kW) and Goliath did a great job in getting it completed all in the one day. The installers were here early and were happy to take my questions and queries on the layout etc. Once the agreement was given Goliath got the paperwork in very quickly to my provider who arranged the new smart meter quite fast. Overall an excellent job and well managed with no issues. Show additional information

Fantastic installers, so good to deal with. 3 Great Men.

The Sales /quoting process was tops. Came on site & went through every thing before we signed up.

When installation took place, they where punctual, polite & Left every thing tidy. After the install they helped with the grid connection & set up my lap top. So good.

Customer service was tops.

Could not fault.

Right from the start the front office staff and Tom were great. Tom made the whole thing personable and explained everything in detail without making it confusing. The installation went well with the crew arriving right on time. They really took a lot of worry out of the process and did exactly what they said they would. Have already passed their name onto others I know are looking for solar panel installation. Show additional information

Highly recommend! Amazing service

Highly recommend Dave, Ben and the team at Goliath Electrical.
Very impressed with their service from the first phone call. The guys made the process incredibly easy and kept me informed throughout the entire process.

Installers on the day were friendly, kept a tidy workspace and cleaned up before they left.

Follow up service has been amazing, nothing is too difficult and they have gone out of their way to help out.

Very happy and would recommend Goliath Electrical to anyone looking at having solar installed.
