Green Valley Solar 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:
After suffering through high pressure salespeople from other companies I found the solarquotes web site and was pleasantly surprised by the no nonsense approach from the installers provided by Finn.
Paul from Green Valley visited my home and explained what he thought would be the best solution for me and left me with a few options to think about.
I did a bit more research and decided to proceed with them.
The team of Paul, Mark and Aaron were great and the installation was hassle free and the system passed inspection with no issues.
I have real time monitoring and am impressed with the output from the system.
I'm now waiting for the power company to update the meter and start getting a payback.

Very knowledgeable company. I had conflicting comments about how to handle my 2-phase supply - GVS was spot on. Work done quickly and as stated. Highly recommend Green Valley Solar. Show additional information
Paul was very friendly and experienced. He was detailed and able to explain technically and logically with his recommendations and products. Together with his team, the installation was done professionally and cleanly and to completion of submission paperwork to our energy supplier swiftly. Show additional information

Paul is very approachable and answers all your questions.
They started on time and were done in a day with a very professional job.

Additional Comment 15/07/17:
Whist I have no problem with their expert installation the same cannot be said for their office procedures.
I would advise anyone getting solar panels fitted to withhold some of the payment to the installer until they hear from their electricity retailer.
I find that I am now in the position of pumping power into the grid for which I will see no effect to my bill for 2 months.
I have spoken to a few other people who have had panels fitted and they have had the same problem regardless of the supplier.
So buyer beware.

We were totally lost at the start of the solar "journey" - didn't know what to look out for or who to turn to. Solar quotes gave us plenty of easy to understand information and put us in touch with some very good operators. Show additional information

So far everything is going exactly as planned. Delivery/installation was done exactly as promised. Paul took the time to explain the system operation and to manage the paperwork. I would highly recommend this company based on my experience so far. Show additional information
Very happy with the quality of workmanship, absolutely top job very neat. Show additional information
Paul, Mike and Window were terrific from the start. They are all electricians with heaps of solar experience and it showed during the quote, discussions on the best solution, install and even afterwards dealing with high voltage in our street and AusNet. Paul simply can't do enough for you, I've emailed him a few times about the street voltage issue and he always calls me back the same day. The install appears to be very high quality, no skimping on cheap mounts, conduit etc and it's all very neatly and elegantly done, Fronius Primo inverter and Winaico panels under $7k with a new switchboard included (old one was too small). We love our new system and we've already cut our import by more than half in a household that averages 22kWh/day over the year (home office). We have also already recommended the guys at Green Valley Solar to several friends. I doubt you could go wrong with Green Valley. Show additional information

The installer I chose was a wonderful man, giving me information to look up and even helped me to fix a meter problem that we didn't even know we had! He physically came to my property to have a look and then spent 2 hours making sure I knew what I was getting. Couldn't recommend them highly enough! Show additional information
Installed 11 Jan 17. Energy Vic inspected system 18 Jan 17 and advised me installation was OK. Have left messages for Supplier to contact me re difficulty logging onto the Fronius website - still waiting for a reply! Show additional information
Paul Johnston was very easy to deal with, he arrived on time, his crew worked hard from 8 until 4 with one short break. The install was neat, exactly where we discussed. Paul guided me through the system, made sure I could log online, registered all the components and serials for warranty on the spot via his tablet, set up the account, sent in the paperwork to book the inspection and the paperwork to the Electricity company and supplier. I must say, the whole experience was smooth, no hassles, didn't need to chase any party, they all rang me in due course to arrange their visits (inspection, programming the meter etc). On a personal note Paul took the time just after the quote to answer my emails and my questions, he came out to look and explain in detail my options, he offered 2 competitive quote and gave me enough information to go and research further. I did not choose the cheap option but rather went for a system and panels from a good source (ie. lots of good reviews). I recommended Green Valley Solar to a mate since the installation. I am very happy with the system and its performance especially the online monitoring tool. It is so easy even my wife checks it during the day. Show additional information

Paul took the time to come out and spend as long as it took to explain my options. It was a learning experience so it helped when someone had the patience to answer your questions. The choice in the end came down to the company installing and the technology they chose to put forward. To me this made the decision very easy regardless of the price. On the day they worked very hard and did a professional job. I am very happy with the results and will recommend them in the future to my work colleagues and friends. Show additional information
The Green Valley representative called same day as my inquiry and spent some time explaining what components he used and the reasons. He lives locally and was able to come next day to look at the shed for the solar panels and explained how the system would need to be installed. Technically he was able to answer all the aspects that I was interested in and provided data sheets for the panels, inverter and mounting. He was able to provide a quotation that day that was within the range of my expectations. He also provide links to videos of solar systems that he had repaired and the reasons for the failures which were mainly related to the quality of the installation work. He was also able to show photographs of some of his installations and the performance results. He gave a date of about two weeks ahead that he said he could do the install and he completed that on the day promised. He then went through some of the system details re cut-off switches etc and system performance monitoring.

So all up he explained the intended system very well, provided an acceptable quotation, completed the work as promised within a very reasonable time, his work was very neat and professional and to date the system is working very well. So five stars!

I found Green Valley Solar excellent. They answered all of my questions and were neat and tidy, quick and efficient.
I would recommend them to anyone else.

I was happy with all three companies that quoted after entering my information into solarquotes. In the end I chose Green Valley Solar. They were the closest, and super helpful, and I liked the advice that they gave. They were great guys! The system was installed quickly and is performing well. Show additional information
Great people, on time, immediately to work, over the top service on all paper work , returned to check overall and explain inverter readings with info supplied to computer via smart meter in power box. Show additional information
Green Valley Solar were excellent and very professional. They have a good experience and were willing to talk about what went where and why.

Energy Assist were good and in the end it was a close call. But I preferred the technical acumen of the green valley solar. Energy assist actually offered a closer item to what I wanted, but the equipment batteries were only just on the market and I did not want to be a guinea pig for a new supplier.

Local and Victorian with their suppliers nearby. Not sales people but tradies walking the talk. On time, explained about 90% and much more than others. Genuine, reasonable size to expect continued support if needed, well recommended by other users. (In discussion they let slip without knowing another big user whom I knew well. They hadn't said to call them but I did. this confirmed my decision.) Solargain didn't send anyone and sounded not interested over the phone, of your suggested Nicholls group had better salesperson by far as he was a tradie not a sales and best system.
Thans for your time and effort and I would definitely recommend you look at Green valley for anyone in the melbourne area, even though they are based in Silvan

Following on my phone call, Mike from Green Valley Solar turned up at my house after having had a look at my location on internet. He explained how it all works. Difference between panels inverters and more importantly an informed local knowledge of power delivery in the area ( power fluctuation ) and which inverter will cope with these conditions. He had a look at my meter box, discussed emplacement of panels, installation etc, very thorough.
I also liked the fact that Mike is a qualified electrician and not a salesman. No sales BS, straight to the point.
On the agreed day Mike and business partner ( also electrician ) plus apprentice arrived on time, got to work, the installation got inspected the same day and by 4.30 pm the system was operational even though problems came up during the replacement of an electrical cable as I had the panels installed on my shed and the cable to the meter had to be upgraded. The paperwork all taken care of by Mike's partner.
The quoted price is what I paid. The service was impeccable.
I did a lot of research on internet reading reviews after reviews of solar systems businesses and it is depressing. A friend of mine who had solar installed a few years ago told me that it took 6 months before his installation got inspected and it took many, many phone calls to his electricity supplier.
I have no problem in recommending Mike and Paul. I also switched to PowerShop, great service.

We highly recommend Green Valley Solar. The staff are extremely knowledgeable on all facets of solar and honest in their dealings with us from quote through to aftermarket service. We sourced over 10 Solar companies for quotes (both large and small companies) and they were the best by far.
Mike created a Solar system which suited our needs, used high end panels and inverter and was the best value for money out of any of the companies looked into.
Mike looked at what we required in a system, visually inspected the roof in person prior to sending a quote, unlike many other companies who used salesmen (not A grade electricians) to sell one size fits all packages that they sized up on our roof using a morning Google Earth picture. He was able to create a system that utilised the sun from dawn to dusk as opposed to some companies who were only concerned with maximising energy creation in the middle of the day (great if you were going to receive 60 cents/kWh). Mike was able to answer all our questions and put our minds well and truly at ease.
Mike, Paul and their apprentice's work was impeccable. They were methodical in their execution and created a neat, well finished system that was signed off on the day.
Once completed, they took us over the system (Fronius Primo Inverter), setting up the WiFi for us and completing all paperwork on the day to get our system making money. Only thing left for us to do was enjoy the free electricity.
We will have no hesitation in going with Green Valley Solar when we next require a system installed.
Thanks Mike and the team at Green Valley Solar.

Paul from Green Valley Solar firstly spent over an hour with me on the phone, discussing various systems and the different technologies. He then came to my house and inspected the roof. He discussed the placement of the panels and inverter. The installation was completed within a day. The standard of work was very high. Everything has been meticulously installed and looks great! The level of customer service I received from Green Valley Solar was exceptional! They definitely know their stuff, and didn't try to sell me stuff I didn't need or want. I would gladly recommend Paul and the team to anyone. A good, honest, reliable, local expert and installer. Show additional information
Still waiting on SP Austnet to program meter. Show additional information
Green Solar is a local Company to us and supporting local businesses is important.That aside, the installers (2) completed the installation in a day and were very efficient and tidy in their work.Their after sales service is spot on as we have issues with our energy supplier.
They gave excellent advice along the way and we would recommend them to anyone who is contemplating going solar.

I spent 4 months looking at and thoroughly reviewing detailed Solar Specifications and options and I am glad I finally went with Green Valley Solar. I purchased 4.5kw of Renesola Virtus ii panels that are Tier 1 and locally supported with an SMA inverter. They were easy to deal with and their workmanship and expertise is excellent. The system generates power as intended/predicted - it is winter as I write this review and it generating ok/good amounts of power for this season of short days. We may add batteries and go hybrid one day in the future - when we decide to increase the size or add to the system we will call them. Show additional information
We also updated the meter box and put LED lights throughout the house. Show additional information
I found them very helpful in recommending not the biggest but the best value for money. Service before/during and after was excellent. Show additional information
Would highly recommend Green Valley Solar. They explained everything to me so I knew what was going on. My friend went with someone else and got his done a month before me and is still waiting for them to come out so that he can start claiming the rebate. Show additional information
Dealing directly with installation electricians rather than salespeople was a very big positive. Easy to deal with, seemed to provide honest information, very good price and no hassle installation. Follow up and ensuring everything was OK even after final payment was excellent. System is working as expected. Show additional information
