Green Sky Australia Solar Reviews

Great system installed by professional installer

- Green Sky's representative attended our property and was the only one of 4 companies that bothered to climb on the roof to advise on the best layout of the panels.
- Installation was scheduled for 11 November first thing in the morning, the installers attended on time and described the installation process in detail. The installation went very smoothly over two days, there were no surprises. They left the property tidy and switched the system on right away.
- The paper work was conducted at the end of the installation, Green Sky's back office team assisted in the process to connect us to the grid in a matter of only a week.
- Overall we couldn't be happier, the system already outperforms the projected efficiency and power generation.

Very happy

I felt that Keith, the owner, was a lot more knowledgeable than other companies' representatives. He quickly dismissed some of the suggestions that other salespeople had made as being impractical, and I agreed with his logic.
The office staff and installers were friendly and easy to deal with.
I pointed out a potential issue with voltage rise not being within the 2% limit as specified by AS4777, and Keith agreed, and was happy to rectify the issue by replacing some of the wiring with thicker wires and doubling up on another section.
The inspector commented that the quality of the installation was "very good". When I told him who installed it, he stated that Green Sky have been in the business for a long time and do good work.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend Green Sky to family and friends, and in fact I have done so already.

Smooth Process

Smooth process from quote till installation. Very professional. The office Louise is very responsive and helpful. The sales David is fast in responding queries. Good work. Show additional information

Smooth and simple process with a quality product

Keith was personable and patient when explaining the different options for my solar installation and made every part of the process clear. The office staff, Louise and Kristy, were excellent and kept me up to date with each stage, organised the inspector and communication with my energy provider, provided all paperwork I needed to send to Solar Vic for the rebate and worked effectively to meet my time frame for completion and followed up with me to ensure I was happy. The scaffold installer and the solar installers were friendly, efficient and cleaned up after the job was completed. The installers took photos for me of the parts of the roof I could not see and explained the next steps. I received all paperwork on time as well as the solar manual. I have started producing energy and saving considerably on my electricity bills, more than I had anticipated. I couldn't be happier with Green Sky Australia and would recommend them unreservedly.

Micro inverter system

Salesperson took the time to answer all our questions and explain the solar system and the process of applying for Vic govt rebate & interest free loan. Because of our roof layout we needed to use micro inverters which made the system more expensive, but this was all well explained. Everything went as planned with the installation, the team from Green Sky were punctual and polite, really happy with the end result. Love the real-time system performance monitoring through the Enphase app. Show additional information

Amazing Service

They did a very good job and it was a smooth and easy process. Show additional information
In July this year the invertor stopped working. It turned out to be the Isolator Switch which had not been installed with silicone to seal the wire inlets at the top. The switches have been replaced and the the invertor continues to work. This is nearly 2 years after the 5 year warranty for this Invertor and the Company has been marvellous at getting the problem fixed. Show additional information
Very professional from go to whoa! We are very happy we went with Green Sky. Show additional information
Knowledgeable on site visit explained all the different options and factors at play. A good experience. Show additional information
We got a couple of quotes but ended up going with Green Sky because of the after sales service. It's one thing to spend thousands of $$$ on a system but once installed how would we really know whether the system is working efficiently, as it should. The fact that the system is monitored for us was a large part of the determining factor to go with Green Sky. Show additional information

Professionals.

Green Sky walked me through the process with professionalism. Easy and calm. Not pushy at all. The Sales Rep answered all my questions and even suggested a few ways to save money on the deal. Show additional information
Green Sky Australia Very good to deal with value for money Show additional information
At this stage we have accepted the quotation and will confirm to proceed with installation after the Rebate program re-commences in July. Green Sky was the only supplier from the three sourced by you who contacted us. We got further quotes from other suppliers found through a site similar to yours. These quotes were all received by email and telephone calls. Keith Buxton from Green Sky was the only one who came on site to discuss the appropriate system for our needs, including recommended panels, inverter and installation position. I also researched a great deal including information on your site, to determine that the system recommended by Green Sky seems the most appropriate for us. I am grateful for the assistance of Solarquotes in all of this and await installation. Show additional information
Green Sky were excellent from the first contact. The only glitch we had was a delay in the supply of Sunpower panels which was the distributor's problem not Green Sky's. The installation team were efficient and effective with the system installed in half a day in poor weather. The install team were professional and a pleasure to deal with. The independent electrical inspector noted that the installation was "excellent". Follow up with paperwork was fantastic with all forms needed for grid connection and rebate applications provided the day after installation. A great company to deal with. Show additional information

It was a seemless experience, Keith the owner quoted the job. We felt very confident dealing with a Green Sky. The office staff in particular Louise was very efficient and professional. Our system has been in just 4 days and all paperwork has been completed and our rebate firm lodged. Show additional information

Green Skye have their own installers and felt confident the installation and ongoing service will be of higher quality then an organisation that sub contracts installations
I have had the Solar for a week now and can see benefits already reviewing WEB page that shows Electricity production and cost savings.
Green Skye kept me updated on installation schedule, process and post installation activities.

I would highly recommend Green Skye

Green sky Australia provided excellent service. I was impressed their representative wanted to visit the site and get an understanding of the site and our needs. Installation went very smoothly - the team arrived when they said they would and were finished before the time they advised. Before leaving we received a clear explanation of the newly installed system. The site was left clean. Show additional information

Our system is being installed in a couple of weeks, but so far we’ve been really impressed with the service, advice, approach and pricing from Green Sky. Excellent friendly and helpful staff. Show additional information
Faultless pre-, during and post-installation service from your recommended company. Couldn’t have done it without you! Show additional information
The real technician can come to the site and talk us through. This is really helpful. Show additional information
I have to agree with Leigh’s comments, Keith came out and did an on-site assessment of our shading issues using a “SkyEye” meter. He was the only installer out of over half a dozen to do so. He assessed that although there was some issues it was still viable to install a solar system. This was far better than have sales personnel doing a review from their desks using Near Maps!
After explaining what I could expect from the system and recommending using micro inverters to overcome the shading issues, I was very happy to proceed with Green Sky and Keith’s team, advice I have been after for last 5-6 weeks of talking to other companies.
Looking forward to the installation in two weeks.
I could not recommend Keith and Green Sky more highly, particularly if there are shading issues.
If you have a possible problem with shading I would recommend downloading the “SunSurveyor” app to your smartphone and do an initial assessment yourself.

I highly recommend Green Sky Australia under the direction of Keith who visited our site to ascertain the solar system appropriate for our needs and budget.
After careful calculations and making observations about all the possible sites, Keith advised that our site is not suitable for a solar installation. He explained in detail why, and I commend his integrity for not attempting to sell me something that would not be appropriate at all.

Keith was courteous, friendly, forthright and clear in all his communications and clearly valued his company, the quality of expertise and the first class outcomes he achieves.
To acknowledge that a system would not work on my site and be prepared to forgo the cost of a full solar installation is a credit to his integrity and professionalism.

We highly recommend Green Sky Australia if you are considering solar.

We called several solar company recommended by "Solar Quotes".

Green Sky responded very quickly and is the most professional in the 4 quotations. We eventually decided on a 26 panel Sunpower/Fronius System after a few iterations. No sales gimmicks, horror stories on failed installations, no pooping on other companies, etc. In fact on one of the quotes, a mistake on their part resulted in more than a $1000 lower in price and they were willing to stand by that price. We could not let them take a loss and we were happy for them to correct the price. Another company offered a lower price and sooner installation but we stuck with green Sky from the reviews we had read.

The installation was very professional with the minimal fuss. It was a large system, so was going to take a couple of days. However, due to high winds, it was not safe to work on a double storey roof and they had to stop half way through the second day. And then one of the crew was sick and Keith, the boss man at Green Sky came out himself and carried all 26 panels (20 kg each) up to the roof. That is true commitment to the company promised schedule!

The Admin staff were very efficient with providing paperwork and ensuring post-system install certification for the claiming the government rebate. The Solar inspector was booked and the installation approved much quicker than expected. And similarly our energy provider was contacted and the smart meter was re-programmed to take in the Solar output into the grid.

Again we highly recommend Green Sky Australia if you need any Solar installations. The team is very efficient, friendly, eager to help, very responsive in any queries and always available on the phone.

Very professional - did what they said when they said it and explained everything along the way. Recommended Show additional information
Keith was very knowable. Handled my more detailed questions well. We were able to use actual energy usage data to determine mix of panels on east, north and west rooflines. System has not yet been installed as we are waiting on other electrical work to be completed that our electrical distributer needs to do first. Green Sky happy to reschedule installation dates to accommodate this delay. Show additional information
Excellent company to deal with. Show additional information
I initially did some homework and had a few quotes using the Solar quotes website, however after that I realised that I didn't really know what I wanted or needed, so had a bit of difficultly choosing the right system for my needs, using just the quotes.
I therefore went back to the drawing board, I used a lot of the information I gained from the Solar quotes web site, a lot of information from the internet and some of the information from the initial quotes to work out exactly what I wanted.
I have an east west facing roof with many large trees on the west side, and some obstacles on the East, so I knew that I wanted a system that could handle shading issues. I also wanted a system that I could get information from each panel. After doing my research I settled on an 8 KW system, because I needed to make as much power in the morning to midday as I could before the shading came in. I have low power consumption, and the recommendation from most quoters said I didn't need that big a system. However, I chose this size so I could feed into the grid as much power as I could during the best power generating periods. I can then draw on the credit later on when not making so much power, including winter. I chose 24 IQ7PLUS-72-2-INT Enphase Micro inverters and 24 LG335N1C-A5 LG PV Modules. I really wanted someone local to install and an authorised seller and servicer in the products I wanted. Fortunately one of the original quotes was from Green Sky Australia and they fit all my criteria and gave me a quote on the system I wanted. I was happy with the quote and they were easy to deal with and non pressuring. They installed the system in a day, on the day promised and the install team and admin team were great. I had one minor adjustments to make after installation with the consumption meter, which was promptly done, and everything is now working fantastically. I can now measure production down to each panel, my consumption, how much I am feeding into the grid versus how much I am using from the grid. The whole system is exactly what I wanted. Keith, and the whole team from Green sky are very nice to deal with, and I would recommend them. My system isn't for everyone, because I have shading issues, and therefore it was a little more expensive than the basic cheap systems that you see advertised on TV, but it suits me perfectly, will last many years and I am very happy.
