Knowledgeable sales and efficient, tidy installation

Green Solar Energy's sales process was responsive and helpful and this carried on through the entire order and installation process, even when having to deal with poor weather on the originally scheduled day. Show additional information

Top job installer, take care safety, your roof and panels. Highly recommended.

Here my experience with Green Solar Energy
Start from the quote and to outline that I have an existing old 1.5KW old system to be removed and to put a new system.
Ann from the office was very helpful and patient in responding to my request for quote variations. I also have a lot of questions about solar and Ann can give me some advice with confidence. At that time, I shortlisted 3 candidate solar installers and finally I selected Green Solar Energy. Paperwork is very straightforward and my installation date is less than 2 weeks.

During the installation date they turn up on time, Richard, Moh start the job first and then Mahmood comes in the afternoon.
I give huge credit to Richard and team for the job they have done. They take care of every single aspect and do the job properly. They make sure your roof does not leak and tidy up my old solar panels neatly after removing them. They stack my old panels together, lean on the wall and put some panel protection to make sure the wall and panels are not damaged.
I don’t think everyone will think of something like this. (please see photo attached)
They are very friendly and very good to talk with and will answer your question and give you some advice.
Mahmoud did the electrician part and he gave advice on where is the best way to put the inverter. They take care of safety and handle the panels carefully one by one. The end result is very good. The app recorded system is running properly without any issue, Roof panels installation neat, Inverter installation cabling also neat.
I have also included some photos post installation.

My final words, I strongly recommended Green Solar Energy to my family and friends for their services.

Great solar package installed by a great, honest team

As with everything I buy, I thoroughly researched and obsessed over panels, inverters, FIT and installers before settling on a package. I knew what type of system I was after (Good value quality components recommended by independent installers [Solar Q&A Group on Facebook] and good local warranty/support) what I wanted to pay for it and the quality of install I expected.. I contacted Ann at Green Solar Energy after seeing glowing reviews on Solar Quotes and other forums and negotiated a package which ticked all the boxes. Mahmoud, Richard and another installer (didn't catch his name) attended my property, answered all my questions and were just a great bunch of honest guys, who were genuinely interested in providing me with the best quality install and customer service.

The install was conducted over two days as it rained midway through the first day, all wiring was hidden into the roof space and wall cavities and 5kw Sungrow inverter was installed neatly inside my garage. No spaghetti run of conduit like I've seen with other installers, these guys were pros! I had an array of 18 black frame Longi 370W panels neatly installed on my north facing roof and these blend in so nicely with my tiles and have generated great output since install.

I've had my solar connected for the past two weeks and am achieving roughly 30kw a day in the middle of winter from my 6.6kw/5kw system. Pretty happy with that! I've since organised to have the same system installed for my in-laws and referred another two people to Green Solar Energy.

I've seen some solar horror stories, but this team just make everything easy.

Great experience

The solar installation quoting process was very eye opening. In no other recent type of purchase I've undertaken has the overall sales tactics been so aggressive and unpleasant. Some retailers once they had my number would sms and call me constantly trying to make me commit, even using different number when I blocked the previous numbers as spam.

Green Solar Energy on the other hand were magnificent from the start. Ann was wonderful providing me with multiple quotes, answering my questions, and only communicating with me in response to my requests. Absolutely no pressure was applied. When I stopped the process for 6 months, then inquired with Ann again, she picked straight up where we left off and offered a better system for the same price. It was a really nice process.

Their price wasn't the cheapest, but it was very competitive. And the products offered for the price were top notch. After accepting their quote and having the deposit clear they scheduled a time for installation weeks inside the earlier specified waiting time.

Mahmoud and the guys turned up on a horrible freezing, raining morning, and did an excellent job explaining what was to happen. They suggested a better spot for the inverter than I had planned to minimize cable run, noise and weather exposure. They completed the work quickly and extremely neatly, and went into great detail on what I had to do next.

That evening I had an unrelated issue with our ducted gas heating. I called to get some information on what they did and was called back straight away by Mahmoud. On his own time he researched and sent me solutions to my problem. In the end the problem wasn't at all related to what was done. But it impressed me that they were so willing to help.

The end system is performing flawlessly. I'm so happy with it. Green Solar Energy is a quality company, and I'm so glad we chose them.

A complex installation done well, and looks good too.

I requested and received numerous quotes and variations of options for this job as I tried to work out the best system for a complex roof with some shading issues and some uncertainties about feasible panel layouts. There was sometimes confusion in the supplier's office about what they were quoting on and what I wanted. Most of the customer liaison seems to come down to one very hard working person who was sometimes clearly overwhelmed. I ended up designing my own layout using NearMap's plug-in, but knowing that what might be able to be installed could be different. I went with this supplier as I'd dealt with them before and had a good result on another site, though they had supplied an inverter different to what was specified - hopefully better, but certainly larger capacity; but also because they were very cost-competitive, even against larger Sydney-based firms; and because they were prepared to get me exactly what I wanted (some firms couldn't get the panels, others promoted different brands, and some good get the panels but not at a competitive price). My electricity retailer said they needed 14 days notice pre-installation to arrange the smart meter installation. The solar supplier only gave me 6 days notice, despite having been advised in writing of the 14 day requirement - again, a symptom of the office being under-staffed, but I figure that's partly why they're relatively cheaper than some bigger firms with more staff. No dramas but it meant there was a greater delay between installation and when the meter was provided. No problems with the installation beyond the variations I'd been prepared for i.e. not being able to provide the exact layout that I wanted, but the same number of panels were provided and largely with the same orientations. The roof trusses and other structures limited what could be done, but the result was still good, and the all-black panels get lots of favourable comments from neighbours (two of whom have since sought quotes for solar power) and visitors. The team put in plenty of hard work and two days of labour to get the job done well. The panels sit relatively high above the tiles but that's an advantage in a declared bushfire prone area, as leaves are much less likely to accumulate under panels. The Envoy monitoring software works well and provides great information about panel performance and electricity use. It helped to detect a problem with the activation time of a new heat pump HWS, which was readily corrected. Very friendly folks and very helpful, including with little things like Ethernet cabling of the system rather than relying in WiFi (both options remain available). Some other providers wanted to charge extra for such things but GSE did it in what was already a competitive price. No hesitation in recommending them again, but it might be good if the office was given a bit more support to avoid being overloaded by responding to quotes etc. Show additional information

Thoroughly recommended

From start to finish Green Solar Energy was a pleasure to deal with. Ann, at the end of the phone was patient with different quotes and questions and even upgraded my panels to a larger wattage for no increase in price. Green Solar Energy does not use contractors and their installers were fantastic and even worked in the dark to complete the installation. My old solar panels were even removed from the roof free of charge (after negotiation). They returned the next day to check out the system (in daylight!). Having an electrical background myself I was able to check the installation and I could not fault it. Very professional. My only critisism is that they were too busy to accept my offer of cups of tea/coffee!
All in all a very painless process.

Great installation - efficient, considerate, highly professional

Green Solar gave helpful advice and thoughtful consideration of our specific needs and concerns with quick turn around in responding to my questions and requests for additional information and a quote variation.

The elapsed time between my acceptance of the quote to installation was pretty well within the time frame they'd given me. The installation went very well - the installers are very professional and obviously have a wealth of experience. I was very appreciative of their attention to detail, neat work & care to minimise impact on the garden and surroundings.

I chose Green Solar even though they're not local, after meeting them & seeing the excellent job they did on my neighbour's more difficult roof installation. I had had some other quotes and discussions with installers in the past, but held off as they had not given me the same level of confidence in their advice or abilities. So any price premium of using installers from out of the area was easy to justify. Green Solar were also in agreement with my preference for micro-inverters due to our occasional shading issues, whereas other installers had tried to convince me not to go that route.

Excellence install.

The quote was pretty standard through the nearmap application or the like. However, Ann from the office was very helpful and patience in responding to my endless request for quote variations. I did ask for many quotes from various installers. Green Solar Energy was not the cheapest, however, from speaking to Ann and Mahmoud (the solar expert who did the site inspection on my request), i felt that they are decent and felt more comfortable putting my business with them. Additionally, they have been around for a long time as well.

I felt the wait after deposit payment was a bit long, but I am glad its over now.

Three persons (Mahmoud himself, Richard and another guy (didn't catch his name) did the installation.They took a very good care of the panels during unloading and preparation, the installation took two days as planned, no rush job, just a care toward the hardware and their safety, very well executed. Watching them taking a good care of the hardware during installation gave me a great comfort. The installation is very neat and went almost as planned On day two, Mahmoud decided to change plan. He insisted to place the inverter in my garage rather than outside next to the switchboard which created more work for them as they needed to run the cable across through the ceiling. For me its a good surprised. After the installation i learnt how valuable it is to have the inverter in the garage on top of providing protection from the elements.
On completion, i was shown the shutdown procedure, going through the inverter menu and the monitoring app. They cleaned up the site pretty well.

Post installation:
Like most others, in the first few days after installation, i was too keen in checking the app and the inverter. During this time, i accidentally disabled the Solar Net which disabled the datalogger. I called Mahmoud but he was not available to come he had project out of Sydney for the week. The following week he rang me after dinner and insisted to fix my issue when i was not that keen, but went with it. I am gladi did. We spent about 15-30 minutes on the phone to fix the issue. I was in the garage and it was cold! This is when i realised how valuable having the inverter in the garage (it would be really bad if installed outside then).

I organised the grid connection myself, just a phone call away (no biggie), although will be an even better experience if they did.

All in all, I highly recommend Green Solar Energy. I have recommended them to others multiple times.

Green Solar Energy did an excellent job

Great installer. Have installed two systems with them. Both installations are working well and the team did a very neat and professional job on both. Would thoroughly recommend Green Solar Energy Show additional information

They went the extra mile

Sales staff were knowledgeable and flexible in their design of my solar system and prompt in getting back to me with variation prices. Richard and Henry were very friendly, and happy to answer any questions. Despite a late finish they did a great job on tidying up and sorted out some problems in my meter box.
I had to have my TV antenna relocated and urge others who need to do this to shop around or to ask the solar panel installer what their price is. My antenna relocation cost me $750 !!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Our experience from the very beginning started off with Ann. She was lovely, patient, very knowledgeable and helpful. I had gone back and forth with her changing this and changing that, and she was always accommodating, and never pushy. On installation day, the boys were great! Kept me informed with any changes or suggestions they wanted to make. They did such a good job, that I even referred them to my sister, and told her she does not need to look else where. The installation was very neat and tidy, and I've very picky. And once complete, all the paperwork was ready for me just to sign and send off to Origin. I can't recommend these guys enough! Show additional information

Quality service, quality materials, quality installation

The sales quoting process was very professional. All my questions were answered and during that process of gaining clarification and also having to compare different systems in the different quotes, I was never pressured to buy.

The installation was excellent. The installers turned up on time and were very friendly and courteous. Highly recommend their work.
The grid connection was seamless and all of the work that was needed to be done to ensure that I could read the solar panel production and our consumption from my phone/computer was done by Green Solar. I highly recommend this company.

Great Value for Money

Ann was our sales consultant and she gave us a good discount for a 6.6kw solar system including 21 opal solar panels and Solis 4g inverter. After we agreed on the price, the installation took place after 18day and Mahmoud and Richard and another installer (forgot the name) were the team who installed the system to our roof. Installation started from 9am and was done by 430pm. Mahmoud was very kind enough to place the inverter inside the garage with my request (which is very difficult, they needed to climb inside the roof manhole and thread the powerlines into the garage). The inverter is now safely nested inside the garage away from sun and rain. Richard gave me the final safety instructions and how to disable the system in any untoward event. The installation team was very tidy. They cleaned the workspace and the wirings and puncture wall holes were done with detail and accuracy. Customer service was very reasonable, my emails were answered very promptly by Ann. Overall im one very satisfied customer. Thank you Green Solar Energy Team. Show additional information

Very happy with entire process from initial quote to installation.

My initial contact was with Ann, who gave me all the information required for an informed decision. I was kept up to date with the progress of my order and given a realistic time frame for installation. Mahmoud and Richard arrived right on time to carry out the installation quickly and efficiently. There was a minor obstacle that was quickly overcome, and the install did not skip a beat. I am very happy with the end product. The inverter and panels appear to be working well, and all the necessary paperwork has been supplied by Green Solar Energy to finalise the installation. I am now just waiting for Origin Energy to adjust the metering to complete the process. Show additional information

Great Price. Great Install and took extra care to make everything was 100%

Very easy to deal with and not pushy during the quoting process as well as a great price.
During quoting they provided a few options rather than just one and explained the negatives and positives of the options.
Installation was perfect took extra care around some fragile roof tiles and even went the extra mile where they sealed a few and properly installed all the cabling with no overhangs or loose wiring.
Very tidy cleaned everything up on completion.
They arrived onsite as agreed and all the installers were polite and helpful with all my questions.
Customer service was outstanding as they took their time to explain what they are doing and how the system and application works.
They explained the documentaion and what the next steps are and what they have to do and what I have to do.
I am a service manager in my day job and these guys did an excellent job and I highly recommend them.

Happy customer

From the start Green Solar Energy was the first out of three to contact us with a quote, they followed up after the initial quote in a timely manner. They were happy to sell us a good budget system and after extensive researching through Solar Quotes website I realized that it would be better to spend a fair bit more for quality and a peace of mine particularly on the Inverter. Green Solar Energy reassured me that it was a good decision and were not pushy and try to sell me something I didn't want or needed.
They were very friendly, punctual and stayed back late till the job was done without leaving a mess. I was impressed. The next day without knowing my Inverter had disconnected from the WiFI (probably me playing with the inverter app) they called me to tell me of the issue and popped by after work to resolved it.
All the grid connections were taken care of i didn't have to do anything. Personal thanks to Ann in sales, Richard and Mahmoud in installations.
Green Solar Energy Highly recommended.

Great Company - Competent - Efficient - Friendly

I am pleased to say that my experience with Green Solar Energy was exceptionally good.
The whole process from initial consultation and quotation through to completion of system installation was managed in an efficient, professional and friendly manner.

At the outset, I had many questions and options that needed consideration. Ann (in sales) was able to quickly provide the answers and was most kind and courteous in doing so. Responses to all my calls/emails were answered promptly right through to job completion.

The installation team - with Mahmoud leading and ably assisted by Richard and Kieran - arrived on the appointed day and worked solidly to completion some 10 hours later. At all times their manner was polite and friendly.
I had some special installation requirements for my system which needed review at install time. I was pleased to find that the team was happy to discuss these and other matters (panel layout/inverter position etc ), resulting in all my needs being accommodated. They undertook the extra effort to achieve this on the day - impressed me greatly.
Good workmanship and a sound knowledge of the various technical aspects of Roof Top Solar was clearly demonstrated.

My overall impression is a Company with high technical expertise and deep installation experience to get the job done well.

I am very satisfied with my experience with Green Solar Energy and would highly recommend them to anyone for consideration.

Great Solar company to deal with.

It was a great experience to deal with Green Solar Energy from the initial quote to the install. We live at Dubbo and Mahmoud, Richard and Kieran travelled out from Sydney. The install went well and was neat and tidy. Ann from the office always kept me up to date prior to the install. Great to deal with and highly recommended. Show additional information

Went above and beyond, did my house and my daughters house. Even replaced broken tiles.

All good, arrived when they said they would. Contacted energy supplier to fix minor service issues. Show additional information

Excellent service, quality gear and professional installation

Of the 5 installers I contacted Green Solar Energy provided the most realistic initial quote - an appropriate number of panels for our smallish, partly shaded roof, using micro-inverters to maximise output and advising on the various panel options. Ann seemed to be always in the office to patiently answer my phone calls and emails with excellent advice and new quotes for all the variations I considered, eventually settling on a 4.5kW system. A supply glitch with my first choice REC panels was quickly solved with a switch to slightly higher output QCell G5+ with similar warranty, avoiding a 6-week delay in installation.
On installation Friday, Richard rang before the agreed arrival time to advise a slight delay. He and Mahmoud finalised the panel layout to cater for my concerns, and the result was even better than the original design. They worked solidly for 9 hours to get the job finished, everything looked good and all rubbish was taken away. Richard showed me where he'd replaced some broken tiles which had allowed minor water leaks into the roof. We already had our smart meter installed so the system actually generated a few watts at 7pm switch-on under smoky skies. Mahmoud followed-up on Saturday with our Enphase Enlighten registration so we could monitor the system to panel level including production and consumption.
Overall I'm very satisfied with the experience. The price was on the high side for this size system but there was a lot of extra work in squeezing the panels onto our crowded roof (at the busiest time of year) and the end result seems to be a quality installation.

Very satisfied

The whole experience was very very efficient and professional from start to finish. As I was away when the panels and inverter was installed my wife was extremely happy with the installation team who were courteous and polite and very informative about what they were doing and what to do once they had finished.

Great company to deal with

Honest, no BS or pushy salesmanship, informative and friendly, at the best price straight up! I was quoted over double from a door to door salesman for an inferior product and dodgy maths on what I could expect to get from my feed in.

Anne was great to deal with and the installers were courteous and respectful, and on time! And I never once felt pushed into making any decisions.

I recommend. Great to deal with.
My solar has only been installed less than a week so I can’t say anything about the quality, but everything seems to be working great.

Amazing Service and Installation

Green Solar Energy were referred by a family member, we couldn't be happier. From quoting to the installation, which was perfect. Show additional information

Great

From the sales team to the installers, the team at Green Solar Energy were great, friendly and professional.

Before the installation, I did a lot of research and got a number of quotes, some were very force-able sales person that was hounding me every day, while others gave me quotes that was ridiculously overpriced (thinking I didn't do my research). Green Solar Energy was not the cheapest, but certainly they were very fair on the price and very reasonable considering I optioned with particular configurations, and were very very very patient (because I had a lot of questions which they answered, in addition they were not pushy, as it took me some time to get my strata to approve of the install). After the install, I could see why they're price is a bit higher then the cheapest quote I got (not by much - just a couple hundred dollars), simply I was very happy with the installers as they worked their guts out and put a lot of attention to details to make the install tidy. The install team were very friendly and professional too. Since, I have recommended a number of friends to them.

Terrific Company and Installer...Very Impressive!!!

Mahmoud and Richard are very professional! They did a fantastic job installing my solar system. I can't praise then enough by doing such a wonderful job and explaining to me how the system works. Also, Ann was very informative on every quotes and provided all the information needed and paper works for connection to the grid. I highly recommended Green Solar Energy to anyone that is looking for a Solar System. Show additional information

A+++ installers

I received 3 quotes from different vendors through SolarQuotes and I selected GreenSolar since their quote worked out to be the best for the panel and inverter of my preference. I wanted a 330W Trina Solar Honey split max with Fronious inverter - a 6.6 KW system. Ann and Mahmoud were super easy to work with and their product knowledge is deep. They were kind to clarify all my queries. Last week Mahmoud and his boys installed the system and promptly provided the required paperwork. The install was neat and clean - super easy. Highly recommend them. Show additional information

Excellent Service, Speedy Installation

Mahmoud and his staff offer excellent service
I had actually cancelled my install and the deposit was refunded that day no questions asked. It was only after the refund was deposited in my account that I received a followup wondering why I had cancelled. That service is almost unheard of these days very impressed.
Once I had time to analyse the quote I had received from a local installer, the quote from Green Solar Energy was a better option. Quick chat with Ann from Green Solar Energy and I was back on the install schedule. As it worked out the install happen 21 days after my first deposit payment. Excellent
The install team were so organised that after a walk around the roof discussing string location(s) best angle etc the whole install took about 5.5Hrs There was no rubbish left behind all work was neat and tidy. We discussed options to get the cables from the roof to the inverter and inverter to the switchboard. They wanted to run the cables within the house walls, the best solution, but I was aware access to wall cavity not possible due to house construction.
The only problem we had with the install was connecting the Fronius inverter to internet. I do not have a NBN or ADSL permanent internet connection and rely on our phones for any internet connection.
Mahmoud advised me up front that they have never had any joy using a phone connection. It was my decision to persist with the phone option.
It did not work.
However Mahmoud spent hours with me trying to get it to work there was never an issue with the support from Mahmoud or Richard sorting this issue out.
In the end I purchased a cheap mobile internet dongle and data plan to ensure the inverter could connect to the Fronius monitoring system which is then accessible from any phone or desktop. Fronius also advise Green Solar Energy of the performance and and service issue with our system.
Anyone else in a similar situation - listen to any advise given
All in all very happy first 6 days average 34KwHrs export to grid after household needs - no smart meter yet. Yes good sunny days.

Great company to work with

The best value for money I could find on the market. The installers were diligent and easy to talk to, as were the office staff. The only let down was they don't always answer the phone, however this is probably a sign of how busy they are due to their good reputation! Show additional information

Excellent service, Support, Install

Green Solar Energy is a well-run business, one that has Ann at the front desk helping you at every step of the way and Mahmoud providing you the technical details to connect the dots.

To say I was the easiest customer to deal with is an understatement, with the level of questioning, meetings, phone calls, emails, still did not deter Green Solar team from helping.

After putting other Solar businesses through the same level of questioning, I landed and signed with Green Solar Energy. The team arrived when promised, performed the install all without challenges.

It’s worth noting that I had a builder inspect every stage of the install, and the feedback I received as the owner was that the parts and installation method were above standard.

For anyone that is reading this, save yourself the effort looking for a Solar installer, and for those that are still assessing, put Green Solar at the top of your list, I did!

A pleasure to do business with.

I received multiple quotes for different sized systems from Anne who was very accommodating and informative. Mahmoud arranged a date for installation and was easy to deal with, and very knowledgeable. After a slight hiccup (due to rain) the installers (Richard and Henry) were quick to arrange another day for the installation. I did not have to wait very long and the boys were attacking the job with great professionalism. I was impressed by their work ethic and obvious experience in the field. The site was spotless after installation and I was informed of what I needed to do next i.e. Grid connect, download monitoring software, etc.
Overall I cannot recommend this company highly enough, the product was excellent, the price was right, and the staff were great.

An outstanding team of Solar Installation perfectionists.

It gives us complete pleasure to recommend these wonderful folks at GREEN SOLAR ENERGY to certainly delivered the right type of PV installation.

After negotiating the terms of installation, accepting a fair and equitable quotation, we proceeded with the installation. We were impressed that they listened to us and unlike others who offered quotes, did not push their agenda on what they wanted us to have. That was quite refreshing to start with. Politeness struck me as folks that we could work with and relate to.

Our installation was not your standard type, it was a domestic 3 phase, with 50 of 385W Canadian Solar panels installed and old panels and inverter removed.

After the careful removal of 10 of "older" cheap 250W low performance smaller panels and the "old" ABB AURORA 3.6KW inverter (installed in 2011) all traces of this bad, totally ugly 2011 install were totally removed.

A mammoth task to execute from start to finish.
After discussions with Mo... together, we worked on replacing the old 8 of 1640mm x 994mm 250W panels
With 10 of 2000mm x 994mm 385W Canadian Solar.

This was achieved by adjusting the geometry of mounting, thus facilitating all 10 x 385W to be mounted.

Next, was the total removal of 10 of a 2014 installation.
These too were carefully removed as well as the old mounting triangles and the mounting roof bars of our 88 Square metre flat metal garage roof.
Our garage roof received 40 new 385W PV, following the tiled house roof that had the new 10 385W installed.

Mo's Green Solar Energy team did it like clockwork in carefully removing the old and covering the metal flat roof with the new 40 of 385W Canadian Solar and following up with reconfiguring the new 10 of 385W Canadian Solar in place. An awesome task to do, however Mo, Richard and Henry worked brilliantly to achieve what was needed. A very impressive job well executed.

Next was the 27KW FRONIUS Inverter, connected to the meter box three phase meter from the street,. Watching Mo work, it was perfection in his work.

As a electronics Techo myself and a designer of good electronics gear, one seriously knows when your sparkie is switched on. Mo, is a "master" in my humble opinion.

I was impressed by his excellent workmanship, his eye for detail and the professional manner in which he did our installation. After his work, he cleaned up all off-cuts and paid great attention to making the installation far better than the 2011 sparkie's very slack and ugly job.

Impeccable attention to detail. That is the marque of a professional. Do it right first time, no corner cutting, very impressed. In the past 50 years, I have never seen a installation wired so well. It is outstanding to see it.

We discussed our forward estimations of our energy needs with the very helpful and knowledgeable Ann in their office and of course, with Mo, the Master.

It was by mutual consultation, we chose a 15KW SONNEN BATTERIE/ Inverter tower to fulfil our battery needs and a FRONIUS 3 Phase inverter to replace the aged 3.6KW ABB AURORA inverter at our meter box.

The SONNEN 15KW battery and it's 3 phase inverter sit in a 1.86m tower along with the 6 x 2.5KW Li-Fe-P04 obatteriesr Lithium Ferric Phospate. These batteries were chosen for their battery chemistry, which we believe is far superior to the older Li-Ion types that are offered by many others.
The SONNEN BATTERIE warranty covers us nicely.

Mo wired everything neatly where practical so the majority of interconnecting wires were not visible, unlike the previous sparkies doing cheap "quick buck" installs for TV advertised jobs. A lesson learned here folks.

Seriously, you do get what you pay for. Cheap jobs. It does not pay in the long run. Pay peanuts, get monkeys
and yes, there are a lot of cowboys out there, seriously!

Then, the job of getting it all to talk with each other via the software, Wi-Fi, nothing was a problem for Mo.... he did it with the same mindset. Perfection.

We are now saving $$$ day and night due to careful battery planning of our unique requirement.

So far, we have been free of grid supply into our home and the battery has kicked in to run appliances and devices well above our expectations. We are almost not drawing much from the grid and that is one huge bonus.

We are more that delighted to recommend Green Solar Energy and Mo's team of experts for any installation.

A very impressive company from the knowledgeable Ann, who runs the heart of the Office, through to Mo... or Mahmoud, Mo suits him.

He has the full responsibility of planning the PV Strings, adding into the mix of our 2 year old 22 of 275W Seraphim PV panels (yes, a $4,499 cheapie from before) and then the logistics of removing the much older 18 solar panels and replacing the removed ones with 50 of new 385 Watt Canadian Solar panels.
Totally Awesome.
My Wife and I do thoroughly recommend Mo and his great, exceptionally experienced team.
It would be remiss not to mention the efforts of his very trusty, loyal assistants Richard and Henry, outstanding workmanship guys, extremely happy with your work and especially that all panels are gapped correctly, 25mm between each panel, spot-on.

It is on this fine basis, we offer our experiences as a benchmark of what you too, can have and achieve. Almost off the grid with all 3 phase approvals done.

All approvals were sought by Mo and fully passed.

With 72 panels, 50 new of 385 Watt, connected with 22 of 275 Watt from a previous installation, all connected correctly and by-the-book. It is a win-win for us. Tidy, punctual and extremely engaging. Great folks to deal with. From a technical aspect, outstanding work !

Vickie and Jeff J.P.

cheers, Jeff.

Anne at Green Solar Energy was very helpful at every stage and the installers were excellent.
The System is not working yet as I had to wait 2 weeks for a "level 2 electrician" to upgrade 3 fuse holders on my Switchboard.

Following that switchboard upgrade I called my electricity provider (Red Energy) who said I would have to wait 6 weeks before they would change the meter. (the level 2 electrician that did the fuse replacement said he could do it on the day for AGL)

My new solar system is not working yet because i need someone to connect the new fuses to a new meter.

I installed a PV system in Brisbane and it was simple and easy (2 weeks)
In NSW it seems to be a bit more complicated. (3 months ?)

Professional people, best service imaginable

I sought quote locally and Green Solar Energy’s quote was approximately 2k cheaper. Ann, Mahmoud, Richard and his team...all were ver professional and maintained vey well communication at each step of the process. My suggestion is that just don’t relay on your local installer, these guy’s go all over NSW. Can’t recommend enough. Also don’t get confused with another company that has “green” in its name. These guys are the real deal. Show additional information

Great installers

Why do I need to make the review longer than 10 words Show additional information
After investigating three solar installation companies (recommend by Finn Peacock), Green Solar Energy was chosen to install two (side by side) 9kW solar power generation systems.
The final decision was based on price and service. Ann was very helpful providing: panel, inverter, battery and ancillary options; as I learnt more about what I had, and how best to optimise my system. As the difference in cost of the systems, between companies, was less than 0.5% of the total, the explanation of technical data, re-quoting of the system with variations, and the graciousness with which it was offered, were telling.
Having Henry inspect the site prior to installation, confirmed the installation requirements, providing piece of mind for the cost and confirmation of the quote.
As it was a large order, there was a mis-understanding about the delay between ordering the system and installation.
Mahmoud, Henry and Richard were exacting and accomodating with the installation and commissioning of the system. They threaded the DC system cableing through existing conduit (prepared during construction) to suit the owners requirements. The panels were installed over the two days allotted, commissioning of the inverters was completed the following day. Some time was lost as I was unaware that an internet (‘Wifi’) connection is required to access the extended inverter warranty from ‘Fronius’.
The job was well finished and done in good humour. It was a pleasure to work with the Green Solar Energy team, and it is one of the best fitout / construction experiences I have had.

great price and installation

My Brother who is an electrical engineer helped us choose Green Solar Energy. He has found them great to communicate with and that they actually know their solar and product much better then many other companies who were not able to talk fine details or who accidentally misrepresented there products. They offer great quality Solar at a great price. The installation was smooth and the team polite and friendly and willing to listen to my brothers and our requests on roof placement ex. thanks so much Show additional information
