Fantastic process the whole way through

I spoke with many companies, and Green Saver were one of the few who insisted in a site visit before making a quote. That gave my family an opportunity to meet Josh, who took his time and explained everything thoroughly. I was impressed by their focus on using quality components and their price was extremely competitive. The process from there was straightforward, and our system was installed only a few weeks' later. Now a week on from installation, we're very happy with what we got.

Great installer

Quoted and installed as per the quote. Easy to deal with.

Great installers

The sales process was very good as they call out in person. The installers of the solar panels were great and had time to explain any queries. The installers went out of their way to help. In relation to the customer service, it took quite a few emails to get an installation date at the start. Two weeks ago I was advised that an inspector will call out then I have to arrange the grid connection, still waiting on inspector to call out. During installation slight damage to guttering system, advised Greensaver and still waiting on response as to when this will be looked at.

Very happy with to have solar installed, but would not recommend the installers.

Very happy with my solar system. Even though it is not what I was originally quoted and it did cost more, I am happy with it.
The installation company were very courteous and helpful until I accepted the quote. After that I had to chase any communication. I was informed halfway through the job that my quoted system could not be installed and I had to install an alternate system that did cost more. I'm quite happy with the system I got but should have been told before work had progressed so far.

Payment had to be made in full before work was completed, but I didn't get a tax receipt until I chased one 2 months after job was finished.
The installation crew were very polite and left everything clean and tidy.

Knowledgeable company and friendly professional team

Greensaver were very quick to respond to the request for a quote & came out to visit our home to explain things.
The installation team were on time, polite, friendly & did a good job tidying up after themselves.
They also helped us set up the app to monitor our system on our laptop & smartphones.
Would definitely recommend them.

Excellent installation

Quoting process meet our requirements having used Finn Peacock's 'The Good Solar Guide' to keep us on the right track. Installation of the 6.6 kW system was on time and completed easily in the day on a two-storied house. Crew were polite and cleaned up site afterwards. Installation was part of the revised Victorian Government Solar subsidy scheme which commenced in July 2019 and contributed $2,225 towards cost.

Great service, quality product.

Quoting process was quick and accommodating. Installation was quick and on time. Inspection was prompt and grid connection is ongoing but that is due to PowerCore.

Installation was trouble free. Connecting to the grid and getting all the paperwork to apply for the Vic government rebate was tiresome

Green Saver was not the cheapest. Everything was straight to the point, no time waster but very knowledgeable and friendly service.

Simon and the Greensaver team are quality tradesmen, and we have a good system installed. Communications were not perfect, however. There was a pretty big error in the quote that came to light later on, and we encountered a few hiccups with dates and times, and with the supply side being SWER (unexpectedly). All of these things were all taken care of, though, and we had a good experience in the end. This is a small company with the installer is dealing directly with customer, which has distinct advantages, but I think they are a bit overworked, and could do with some sales assistance.

We've only had them in for 4 days so too early to make any other comments.

The principal impressed me as being honest and knowing the solar industry. I was also impressed with his team. They worked efficiently and clearly had installed many solar systems. The workmanship was good, no loose ends and no mess. I was also pleased that the person who I committed to install with was on site as part of the installation team.

My experience with Greensaver Solar was nothing short of fantastic.
The service was exceptional as was the guidance in planning a system best suited to our needs.
The price was not the best but what we got was a value for money system without cheap and nasty components (which was offered by the suppliers with the lowest prices).
We have had the system up and running for almost 2 months and the performance has been better than expected for autumn leading into winter.
Thanks Greensaver Solar!

The 2 companies you had contact me for a quote were both prompt in contacting me, and in arranging to come and see me.
Explanation of system components and installation were very easily understood and neither company pressured me into any decisions.
I am looking forward to having the 5.4kW system installed mid June 17. Would be happy to update information after installation is completed.
Thanks for your help and advice in this process.
Regards
Rob

Friendly, sales person who listened to my queries, made recommendations, and explained the workings of the system in a manner I could understand. The price was very competitive for a quality system. The installers were efficient, prompt, and careful in minimising impact in my garden and roof. Would recommend.

The daunting task of choosing a system and supplier was Made easy by Simon from Greensaver. He was very professional, honest and realistic about what benefit we would achieve from installing solar. Highly recommend this company.

Very prompt installation -- days, not weeks!

I have already responded to your request for a testimonial, which you have acknowledged. I requested that it not be for publication - but guess what? This is the problem with computer generated information.

As we installed just prior to Xmas we had to wait for a month for our power supply company to hook us up to the grid which was a it disappointing as weak a lot of hot weather but we were not sending any excess back to the grid.

The service provided by both Solar Quotes and Green Saver Solar was seamless, Simon from Green saver was very professional and all questions answered in a timely matter no matter how stupid they may have been, on the day of installation he was on time and did the job with no disruption to our routine and left the work area in cleaner shape than he found it, I would not hesitate to recommend his service to anyone, he really does provide something that is missing today Great Customer service.

The decision process was like juggling hot balls and trying to catch the 'coolest' quote and equipment for our needs and capabilities. It was not the cheapest quote, but we think we did alright after much sifting, and using your website as a ready reference for anything from panels, inverters, and traps for the unwary.
