High professionalism

We found the entire process to be conducted in a highly professional manner, from early consultations and the quoting process to the installation and post-installation follow-up. We strongly recommend Green Solar. Show additional information

Best quality, Best value

Normally a platium installer charges more than the market average but these guys quote me very fair price with best work. To be honest i asked at least four similar level installer they give me the best price. You may miss them because they dont put much info on their website or advertisement but definitely choose them. They even help me to fix the tiles while installation with no extra cost at all.
Thank Paul

Good price for a high quality system, good to deal with

Quoting process was fine - not as good as other companies, sales guy was nice enough but came across as sales-focussed and was not as knowledgeable in comparison to sales people from other companies that I dealt with.

Finally decided to go with Green Solar because their product is high quality and with excellent warranty coverage.
Installation was fine, good people, very professional. Initially the connection wasn't set up right, but Paul, the boss at Green Power has been exceptionally helpful with getting everything organised. Now I have become a solar power app addict, I love checking how much power we are making and using.

I was very pleased with the service shown, by Green Solar and the advice, that was freely given, but not in any type of a pushy way. The installer explained the workings of the system and how to get the best out of it. The system I chose, was not the cheapest, but I have what I believe is a quality system, that will give me maximum benefits, for my money spent. My thanks to you for putting me on to this company.

Great job by the company and their installers

Was guided by Solar Quotes to arrange 3 quotes by local installers,only 1, Green Solar,Barry,got back to me within the allotted time frame..maybe the others where busy at the time.so arranged a quote,took photos of roof and meter box,and decided that there where shading issues with the house.I had been waiting council approval on a machinery shed to get built and told Barry that where the shed was,it was perfect for solar to be installed,but was 4 months away from completion,he said he would arrange a followup call when it was completed.With the shed up,Barry decided as he was in the area to make a visit to see what system would be best suited.Up until then we where talking 6.6kw with 5kw inverter on single phase,on inspection he saw that the existing house was on 2 phase and there was provision for 3 phase in the meter box,so it was decided a 3 phase 10kw panel,8.2 kw inverter would do the job I wanted.After looking at Canadian Solar website I noticed they had just introduced 400 watt panels (August 2019),and after measuring the length of the sheds roof (15.15m) opted to put 28,14 per side 400 watt panels with east /west configuration with a 10kw Fronius 3 phase inverter.On the day of the job the installers came,on time,changed out the asbestos backing board,installed isolators,hot water timer,3 phase cabling to the shed,fitted inverter to backing board and even supplied power points,all very efficient and polite. A job well done.Today 4/10/19 system made 62kwh with max power of 9987w one month ago(September)..looking forward to longer days and more sunshine.Thanks Barry and the team from Green Solar..

Amazing Experience

From start to finish Gerard at Green Solar from a stand out. The only one to give genuine advice about what to look for and what was best for our individual needs. Gerard spent a lot of time with before going ahead at his own cost/time. Very competitive quote. At install the guys (George and Paul) were so quick, informative and cleaned up after themselves. Once they were done they spent time explaining the system functions and the process from there.

Our system is now up an running and for winter we are seeing great results so far. I highly recommend The Fronius smart meter and a hot water timer. It has been great having a consumption meter to show when and what to use at peak and off peak times.

Such a great experience and i give them 11/10. Superb. Thanks again for all your help.

Dealt with Barry from Green Solar and he has been excellent in explaining the options, pros and cons, and costs. He helped with some of the prep work (like getting our meter moved) and has been available all the way. The installers turned up and explained what they were doing and walked me through the kit, and configuration, helping get the inverter connected, etc. The guys were excellent. Completed the job on time and left no mess behind. In the first few days - in winter - I'm seeing 28KWh or so being generated and I'm really happy with it. Show additional information

Great Installation

All excellent from first contact and quote to the actual installation. Still waiting on Ergon to do their bit but Green Solar crew couldn’t have been better. Very punctual and the installation was so fast . No mess left behind at all. The crew was very polite and everything was explained to me in depth . Communication with Barry couldn’t have been better. Many thanks! Show additional information
Finn, your website is excellent reading, it's been really helpful and educational, it made it easier for me to make a decision.
I've had fantastic service and info from Barry, and I'm very excited to have solar installed in the beginning of June
Thanks heaps.

Went with dearer REC 6.6kw system and fronius inverter, but approx $7k seemed reasonable price and after sales service has had good reviews. Show additional information
Electric company hasn’t been over to install new meter, so the solar isn’t working yet. I can’t rate quality of system for this reason. The installation team were professional and friendly. I didn’t get to meet the salesperson, he wanted to do everything via phone and email. From the very first phone call Green Solar have been helpful and informative. The new meter will be installed on the 5th September. Show additional information

Both sales and installers really knew their stuff. Detailed oriented, asked for my input where relevant, offered their advice. The owner really knows his stuff. Highly recommended and will be recommending to others Show additional information
Right from the start Green Solar were fantastic to deal with. They recommended a quality system which we were seeking, with a Fronius inverter and Winaico panels. I was extremely impressed with the two guys who came out and installed the system. They were extremely knowledgeable and experienced with the installation of the system and their was no question I had that they were not able to answer.

The system has been performing perfectly as forecast by the installers. I can easily watch what it is doing from my lounge room on my computer or from my phone. These accounts were set up quickly and efficiently by the installer for me.

The follow up from the manager of the company was excellent. The company is a truly professional company to deal with, which was a pleasure, and cannot recommend them highly enough. As I'm sure any reader of the testimonial is aware, dealing with a company described above, in any industry is becoming rare in Australia these days.
I am extremely appreciative of Finn and his team for introducing us to Green Solar, to save me the difficult job of finding a Solar System Installation company described above.

After about a week from the installation I went onto the roof to look at the panels, I picked up a pocket full if rubbish left their by the installers such as cable ties about 5 end caps pieces of strapping, this seems to be common with most installers as my friends had the same when their solar was installed. Apart from that I love my Solar. Show additional information
I dealt with Paul from Green Solar - an absolute pleasure. He made what could have been a stressful process, easy! Lewis from Ultima Electrical installed the solar system. He was a complete gentleman and true professional in his conduct. Paul and Lewis provided a 5 star service! Highly recommended. Show additional information

Green Solar was one of four solar companies that I contacted to provide me with proposals for a new solar installation. I had a lot of questions, and the more I researched, the more questions I had. Gerard (Green Solar's Sales Manager) encouraged me to ask as many questions as I could, and he either answered them immediately or found answers from within the Green Solar team. Unlike other companies I was talking with, there was no pressure from Gerard to sign up. Once I decided to proceed, everything happened seamlessly. Paul and George (the installers) did a great job, and the system has been exceeding my performance expectations. Show additional information
Install happens mid January, so far really happy. Show additional information

For Brisbane, place 1/2 of the panels on the East roof and the other 1/2 on the West. During summer the sun is almost directly overhead so a North facing is not important. We start generating power at 5:00 AM and stop at 6:30 PM. We get 11 hours of power generation at 1kW or more, full power (4.6kW) for 3 hours at high noon. A North face install would have given us a very high power generation for a short window of 4 - 5 hours. Instead we have a flatten power curve and power for the whole day. The advice we got was excellant. Show additional information

Hi SolarQuotes. Barry the salesperson from Green Solar was very good at his job he recommended a 6.6 kW system the installation went very smooth my last bill from Ergon was $919.00 for the quarter I just received my first monthly bill that’s what I opted for was $13.00 really happy to say the least thanks green solar Show additional information
Green Solar made the purchase and installation of my solar system onto my new house seamless and worry free. The quote was very competitive, the quality of installation was very high, and the staff were easy to work with. They arranged everything with my builder and the system looks fantastic. They went above and beyond when I had an issue with my electricity supplier which Green Solar resolved for me. Show additional information
We have not had our system installed yet but booked in for the first week in May. So far excellent service and negotiated a great price and deal Show additional information
I was recommended to Green Solar by a friend who expressed his great satisfaction with their work. One phone call later and a visit by Gerard and the quote was completed and accepted. After a small delay in obtaining specialised fixings for my somewhat unique roof covering the job was completed with a high level of quality, efficiency and dedication (It was 38 C in the shade that day).
I had a couple of followup questions on the Solarweb site which were all swiftly responded to.

I will definitely recommend them to others.

Thank you all.

1. Your customer review rating system lacks a category between good and fantastic. (Excellent perhaps?)

2. So far excellent but too early to honestly rate the quality of the system.

Although Green Solar were slightly more expensive than my 2nd quote for a similar system, I chose them because I felt that they were really helping me to find the best, and most cost-effective, system design to suit my home and shading issues. The system has been running for one week and I am very happy with the output so far.
