Green Sky Australia 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:
My solar system is yet to be installed but
I have chosen to go with Green Sky out of the 5 installers I looked at, for some of the following reasons:
-they offered high end components that were capable of expansion and adding batteries.
-they were knowledgeable and had a good amount of experience in the industry.
-they have had good communication throughout the process so far.
-they are not salesmen, but electrical engineers and installers doing that you deal with through the process.
-they don't use contractors for the installation.
-they only sell components from companies with Australian offices.

We purchased an 8.7 kWh system. The system will be Phono solar panels and Goodwe inverters. Still waiting on the inverters, so nothing to report yet. Show additional information
One of the suppliers were not honest with their quote. They told me that the fronius inverter was compatible with any battery type. Show additional information
Initial process with Green Sky was easy, but follow up process with electricity retailer (forced changing of plan) was lengthy and hard to understand.
Haven't yet been advised on how to monitor electricity production and usage on-line, so disappointed I have to follow that up myself.

"Dealing with Keith Buxton and his team from Green Sky Solar was both informative and productive, the quote had a number of options offered which gave us the scope to select a system relative to our requirements and price range. On inspection of the site, Keith advised us of the fitting options
and provided further and helpful nformation relative to our circumstances in a most effective, professional and helpful way. Once the quote was accepted, the team went about fitting the system professionally and efficiently in a very timely manner. The fitting team were all great people and extremely efficient in getting the system up and running.
When finished they informed us of the next step and handed us a package fully explaining the process from there on. On following the supplied instructions it was no time before we were connected to the grid and producing benefits.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Keith and his team as both suppliers and fitters of solar systems. An extremely professional and courteous operation."

Keith and his team, which is from Green Sky, are very helpful both onsite/via phone. The information provide on varies system are very thorough and clear. I really like the comparison. You feel no pressure in making any commitment during the quotation appointment. The reason we choose them over the other companies is mainly price and the system that present. Having said that, I also appreciate the sale rep from Essential solar. He is professional, also there is no pressure in getting you sign on spot. The information he provide are also clear and very detail. I think both companies that are referred to us, they are very professional and you couldn't go wrong with either one.

Fantastic in every aspect from start to finish Show additional information
Dealing with Keith Buxton was really good. He came over, and explained what would be best suited to my needs. Installation was fantastic with Brad and Peter doing an exceptional job. Has been a really smooth process. Now bring on the sunshine. Show additional information

The Quote service provided was great, efficient and linked us up with professional quality suppliers who were all more than helpful to explain the technicalities of domestic Solar installations. I would recommend your service to anyone interested in getting solar fitted. Show additional information
It's a bit hard to accurately estimate the value and quality of the system after it's been installed for only a few weeks. It's certainly working, chugging away and generating lots of kWs. I believe it will save me money in the long run and I must admit that I enjoy running the air con and dishwasher during the day and not having to pay grid prices for the power.
I was very pleased with the efforts of the installers. They arrived on time, were polite and worked efficiently. I had given them a heads up about the TV aerial being in the way, and they were kind enough to move it to another location without further charge. Overall, I think they did a splendid job.

Overall my experience with Green Sky was great. The sales person (Keith) knew his stuff and was the only one of 3 who verified that my best option was a 3 phase inverter. The installation went ahead with no fuss on the expected date. The only thing that could have been done better would be a call from Green Sky the day before installation just to confirm they were still coming and what time to expect them on site.

From first enquiry to system commissioning, I dealt with six staff. All were polite, friendly, knowledgeable, professional, neat and thorough. They said what they'd do, then did what they'd said. The whole experience was swift and hassle free. Astonishing, given the cost and complexity (to me, anyway) of this project. My botched home renovation 12 years ago just about destroyed my faith in tradies - if not humanity. Yet I can happily report that Doug, Louise, Keith and crew have done much to restore it. In my view, you can't go past Green Sky Australia. I spent two months choosing them from a shortlist of four suppliers, so you can see how picky I am. Triple bonus points to Finn at Solar Quotes for his fabulous content and systems. Without them, I'd never have spotted Green Sky, let alone got them over to quote. So, five stars across the board from a very happy camper. Proceed with confidence! Show additional information
A great organisation with professional staff. Could not fault them and am happy to recommend them to others. Show additional information
System installed on 08 Oct 16 - need more time to evaluate system before a higher rating is given for items 1 & 2 Show additional information
Very reliable supplier, super easy to work with Show additional information
Installers arrived at the requested time and installation was performed quickly and efficiently. It is still early days, but the system appears to be both good value for money and a good quality system. This will become more evident when I do some detailed monitoring in the coming months.

With regards to using this review on your website, I would say 'yes' if you keep my name anonymous.

We got our system of 16 Q-Cell panels with Enphase microinverters installed this past weekend.
Keith Buxton and his team from Green Sky Australia were excellent throughout the process and had the system on the roof and up and running in just over 6 hours. This morning I already got the link for the Enphase data server and can now see how the system is performing. So far the system is working perfectly, and I am starting to figure out how to use the data that the Enphase App provides - obviously to optimise our energy consumption.

I chose to go with Green Sky because
a) Keith Buxton was clearly the most knowledgeable of the people that quoted, and he was also the one who asked the best questions and had the most down-to-earth, trustworthy and consultative approach; and
b) The Q-Cell panels and Enphase microinverters that Green Sky offer appear to be very high quality/value for money (see also the reviews here on SolarQuotes and elsewhere).

I can highly recommend Green Sky Australia based on this experience.

Nicholls were the only one to come to site, other 2 very good in sending quotes,when I decided on Nicholls I had decided they quoted me for QCell Panels and Fronius Inverter when I asked the others to quote on the same system they were way over the price I had been quoted I gave them the opportunity to re-quote but couldn't match price (I didn't disclose to them the price I was getting).
The system is not installed as yet but will be in late August, Nicholls were good with communication and organizing throughout.

Panels are installed and were working from day one can already see that it will save me money and help the environment. Show additional information
Our experience dealing with both Green Sky Australia and also Essential Solar was both positive and helpful, with both companies keen to view the property and discuss their proposal face to face. This contrasts vastly with Solarkraft who after initially making an appointment to visit cancelled and then seemed to prefer an on line discussion to which I was not keen. Both representatives from Green Sky Australia and Essential Solar were polite, friendly and eager to explain the proposals and present a competitive price.
In the end it was a difficult choice to make with one being cheaper and the other having in our view a product better suited to our requirements.
Ultimately I would not hesitate to recommend either company to deal with.
Regards,
Peter

It was fantastic to find a website that provided me with quality information and referrals to three local installers. The latter were excellent salespeople who took the time to ensure that I understood the procedure of installation and the final cost. You hear stories of the shonky solar panel companies and your website ensured that I was able to easily avoid them. I could not be happier with my solar panels. Show additional information
Not up and running yet so difficult to rate system,but all looks good. Show additional information
Nicholls Group Victoria delivered what they promised every step of the way. Show additional information
Having an existing, average installed system, finding a supplier that would give considered advice and benefit of experience as well as having a qualified sparkie having rational discussion made all the difference for sorting the gems from the chaff! Show additional information

Nicolls avoided giving conflicting or misleading information that some of the other providers said. They also were able to clearly answer and resolve many of the questions I had. For the system I wanted they were the cheapest. The salesperson was honest and open about the systems being propossed Show additional information

Sales was excellent, not pushy, answered all questions.... The installers were excellent, committed and caring.
The whole experience was/is value for money.

I had arranged one quote for myself before I saw the Solar Quote website and after contacting them they arranged for another three quotes. One being Nicholls Group as they offered a micro inverter system. Those readings this need to understand the difference between micro inverter and string array systems which is very well explained on the Solar Quote website.

Keith Buxton from Nicholls Group rang and arranged a site visit. Unlike a lot of installers these days, he confirmed our appointment before hand and was on time. I was very impressed with his answers to my questions and helped fill in a number of gaps. His background as an accredited designer meant there wasn't that pushy sales pitch. After that meeting I sat down and went through all the quotes and information on solar arrays' and decided on Keith's Enphase micro inverter system. My intention is to harness solar power and combine with a battery storage system. But this will have to wait until there are improvements in battery technology.
I went with Nicholls Group -Renewable Energy partly based on the reviews I had read but I very keen on the micro inverter system they offered over a string array.

Because I had requested LG NeON2 315W panels there was a lead time but the install occurred about 2 weeks after I had signed up. Brad and Roman were on time. I have to say these guys are absolute "guns". They were quick, neat, clean and mindful of their "invasion". Brad explained how the system was installed, worked and how the Envoy data monitoring system works.
I couldn't speak more highly of these two tradies, being one myself.

I also have to make mention of the girls in the office, they too, were very helpful, followed up and returned calls very quickly.
Collectively, the Nicholls Group is a very well run operation. I don't think my few lines of review can do justice to the quality of service I received.

Late 2015, Nicholls Solar (Keith Buxton) provided me a comprehensive explanation of the solar PV system that they are recommending. Aside from me doing my own research about the individual components, Keith provided his own knowledgeable opinion about the systems they install, the quality, any pros and cons, etc. He personally came over to have a look at the roof layout, and answered most of my questions. He even suggested delaying the install if I want to have a truly battery storage-ready system that will be available early 2016. True to his promise, him and his men (Roman and Brad) came to do the install mid-January 2016 and my solar PV system was up and running that day. There were minor teething problems due to the newness of the component, but Keith, with the help of the OEM, were able to resolve the issue very quickly. The issue was more web reporting-related (production vs consumption), and nothing to do with the overall install and quality of the solar PV system.

Long and short of it - we are very happy with our experience with Nicholls Solar (Victoria) and the system they have recommended. Looking forward to contacting them again once the battery-storage solution for solar PV systems have matured (and cheaper) in a couple of years, perhaps.

As I write, the solar is in, and the air condititioning is due to be installed tomorrow. They are giving me a 'free' switchboard upgrade as part of the deal. Keith is a very knowledgable manager. Show additional information
2 of the 3 suppliers were really good to deal with, one of the suppliers was a little too concerned with knocking the other suppliers rather than trying to come up with the right solution for the right price Show additional information
I had three quotes for solar and found it all a bit confusing but in the end I chose Nicholls Solar Victoria.
Keith explained everything to me and followed it up a week later with an email as he didn't want to hassle me as I had not known anything about how solar worked. Louise in the office was always very pleasant so it seemed they were a nice company to deal with.
The guys came on Wednesday 13th Jan 2016 a very hot 42 degree day. It was 62 degrees on the tin roof and they were up there from 7.30 am until about 4 pm OUTSTANDING job and because it was a big job and the heat they didn't get finished so came back on Friday morning 15th Jan 2016 and took another 3 hours to finish all the work. (I gave them iced water to help cool them down).
They were very professional and did a great job of cleaning up all the packaging and even sweeping out the garage where they had set up.
Now just have to wait for it to be inspected and then set up.
I found that all the worry was needless after all.

Keith Buxton from the Nicholls Group is an absolute pleasure to deal with. He is an honest and upfront individual, he spent the time to fully inform me of our options and answered my many questions about the technology and about the industry in general. In the end, we chose to go with the Nicholls Group because the point of difference was the way in which Keith educated us about the system rather than "selling" us a system.

Keith the owner, Brad and Roman, the installers, not only installed the panels and inverter efficiently, but also made sure they cleaned up all their mess afterwards. They told me exactly what the process will be after installation and before use, and helped me get set up for online usage, etc. Show additional information
