Congratulations Sharn you should be very proud of what Helioenergy represents and how you conduct your business!

Shan, who did the whole deal was great. He supervised the installation and was the certifying electrician. He is extremely qualified and knows his stuff. The upshot is my mate also had a 6KW 3 phase system installed by him and we have recommended Helio Energy to others. Show additional information

First call from an intern was a little underwhelming, but sent a detail quote with many options. Later on, Shan Gao (owner) contacted us, and came to visit the site. Shan was able to answer all my questions on the spot and was willing to do the installation neatly as I required. I went ahead with the installation. Shan Gao and the team came and did a very good installation. They all were very kind to answer questions and explain what they were doing. I am very happy with the installation. One loose connection on one of the string was detected the next day and fixed within 30 mins or so. i also had two optimizer installed on two panels and an overall consumption meter. I am glad i bought a consumption meter as it helps to see production and consumption on the same graph. Overall I would highly recommend Helio Energy. Show additional information
Shan Gao is also an electrical engineer.. Very thorough advice and he spends time designing the system for you. Upfront, honest, down to earth and right advice.. Quality of workmanship beyond par.. I would strongly recommend.. A rare gem in the plethora of run by night solar installers.. Keep up the good work Helio Energy! Show additional information
Shan - the owner of Helioenergy is a qualified Electrical engineer. He advised on best selection of system and was able to answer all the questions i had in layman's terms. He never tried to up-sell me to more expensive systems, merely stated facts about the downsides of a cheaper system vs the benefits of a more expensive one. I had cheaper quotes but Shan made such a positive impression price never came into the the decision process. Installation was effortless. Very skilled, polite, tidy installers who left no trace of them having been at my house, all overseen by Shan. Highly recommended. Show additional information

The website is great and even though I had troubles submitting my info I had help from the Solarquotes 'helpers' to guide me through it and very responsive. Lots of details on the website which is great but obviously the mind boggles when there is too much to read but that's not your fault. I almost signed up to one of those pushy companies but a fellow engineer introduced me to your website. Thank goodness. It took a lot of time to get to a supplier but hopefully it will be worth it in the end. At least I'm a lot more knowledgeable now about the systems which is good R&D for myself (I'm an electrical engineer but never really dealt with the nitty gritty of solar). I would recommend the website to anyone even though the install is not quite finished but so far so good. Show additional information
Strongly recommended.
I live in a 3 level split townhouse, and have a few quotes before I found Mr Shan Gao.
One of the quotes say I need a hire a cherry picker to pull the solar panel up to the roof,
wiring is hard to do as well etc which got me really worried.
Everything just went smoothly when Mr Shan came to install the solar panels without
even having to hire a cherry picker.
Job is done in one day and Mr Shan give me a reasonable price.

Shan Gao and his team proved to be highly efficient, courteous and diligent, throughout the installation process. My site created a few challenges for them to achieve a neat installation and time was not a consideration for them, to ensure a great outcome.

The system works as expected.

Helio Energy was the only firm to offer multiple solutions and system configurations, allowing me to choose from a wide range of options and component brands. Shan also provided some guidance in this regard supporting components with what appears to be independent opinions, and comparisons. This enabled my choice to be more informed and understanding of the pricing comparisons and installation outcomes to be expected.

I can highly recommend this firm to anyone who wishes to achieve a "Solar Solution" of their own choosing, with sound guidance from an installer who is very willing to work with them throughout the process. An installer who has exhibited great patience in answering my many questions, including through the installation itself.

I found Helioenergy through Solarquotes. Shan their owner called me immediately and was very warm on the phone and allowed me to specify what I was looking for. He also asked if I wanted additional suggestions in a way that was very helpful and not pushy or without disrespecting the research that I had done prior to that. He was up front and honest about the products that he can use and gave what I felt was very honest opinions on brands, configurations, return on investment etc. When he attended my house, he was up front about any challenges and any possible changes to the quote, but assured me that it was highly likely that the quoted price would not change. He also assisted me in preparing for a battery installation in the future, advising on products, locations for the inverter, possible locations for the battery and even told me about the Australian standards, drafted proposals, the likely changes to my daily capacity, provided satellite photos of my roof with alternate options for installation and was very comfortable to deal with.
I agreed to the system, 6.5 kW, Jinko panels, Fronius inverter for a a good price compared to other quotes I received. He was able to install within 2 weeks and upon arrival, my wife was gobsmacked at the professionalism of the team. They arrived before 7:30am but had agreed to arrive at 7:30 and therefore waited until 7:29 on the dot to ring the door bell. They insisted on taking their shoes off when walking in the house so that they don’t leave mess, brought their OWN microwave to heat their lunch in order to avoid inconvenience to us and were all round the most professional trades people we have ever dealt with.
The system is working incredibly well and Shan even provided follow up advice and support. I didn’t think that there were people out there as professional as this company. I have since had two friends use the same company because of the rave opinion I had of them.
Well done Helioenergy.

I would recommend Helioenergy's Shan Gao and his team to anyone contemplating solar without hesitation. Show additional information
Very helpful with queries and very professional to deal with. Installation was a breeze - quick and efficient without any fuss. Show additional information
I highly recommend HelioEnergy.
Shan was a pleasure to deal with. He knows solar and was happy to share that knowledge, and to answer whatever questions I had at our first meeting, and subsequently.
He recommended a system that is right-sized for my needs, contains quality components that should last. And all at a good price.
The installation was completed in one day as promised (even with some rain), and has been generating energy as expected from that day.
I'm very pleased thus far and will happily recommend Shan and HelioEnergy to my friends.

After spending weeks researching and getting quotes I decided on HelioEnergy based on price, quality, and experience. Shan is the owner of HelioEnergy he was very understanding of my needs from the moment I contacted him till the job was done. I ended up with a 6.6kW system which included 22 x 300w Longi panels and a 5kW Fronius inverter. Since installation it has been producing on average 29kWh each day, which is beyond my expectations. I'm very happy with the outcome and would recommend Shan and HelioEnergy to anyone. Show additional information
I almost went with a shonk outfit until I was steered towards SolarQuotes.

Shan Gao, HelioEnergy, attended my site and gave the best attention to any question I asked. The install was done far quicker than expected and I was able to monitor the professional progress of his crew. I also looked at the hardware and noted it was all coated stainless steel. I have building experience and I did not hesitate to score the work top marks in every aspect. Electrical fit-out was very neat and professional too.

I went for 18 Trina Honey panels and a 5kW Sungrow inverter. I did not opt for SMA or Fronius due to their price premium and also because the Sungrow is regarded as about the best of the cheaper variety, it also performs as well or better than the expensive ones. IMO, no point spending big on an inverter if it might need changing out for any future battery technology, if and when it becomes available at a practical price point (just my suspicion though!). Personally after reading about Sungrow and Trina, I feel confident with the quality. Also I didn't overclock the system.

Note, both Helioenergy and Solaredge sales people presented well, the third person that was meant to quote never got in contact with us. Show additional information
The team at HelioEnergy we’re the best choice after looking around for many months for the right installer. Their honest approach added true value to my experience. Resulting in exactly what I needed and wanted from a solar system. I look forward to using the power generated by the system installed and designed by HelioEnergy. Show additional information
They answered all my questions, have my system installed 10 days after paying deposit. They arrived on time on the day and it took one full day for my two storey house. Everything works from the next day. They cleaned up after the installation as well.

My system consists of 24 x Trina 275W panels + Fronius Primo 5kW + Fronius Smart meter.

Helio was quick in action. From time of paying deposit to installation completion only took a few weeks. Installation was done in one day.
Inverter tripped the second day after installation, possibly due to the grid voltage fluctuation of a very hot day. Inverter recovered by itself and it has been running smoothly since.
Overall I am happy with their communication, work and the system.

I don’t normally do reviews, but I am extremely happy with the workmanship by Shan from Helio Energy Pty Ltd after completion of the job. I have been looking into solar for a few months and after an increase in electricity rate, plus some analysis into the surprisingly good break even time, I decided to go ahead. Having a three phase house I had a number of questions about the wiring as well as different solar options. I have since learned Shan is not only a licenced electrician, but also has degrees in engineering and science. After many back and forth phone calls with Shan, and him being able to answer my difficult questions (many couldn’t), as well as clearing my worries about roof workmanship, I decided I would seek another quote. The quote was competitive with many others and Shan was able to complete the job very quickly. I’m still awaiting the 3 phase net meter from my electricity retailer, but my invertor output is showing I’m producing a large amount of power nicely. I’m very happy with the install. When your house modifications involve electricity and roofing installs, things need to be done right! I highly recommend Helio Energy for solar. For the record I went with micro inverters and a 10.2 kW system made up of 34 LG panels.

I highly recommend Helio to anyone looking for solar.

Helio was very professional throughout the whole process. They responded quickly to our quote request and was always quick to answer questions.

They use quality components at a very competitive price.

Their installers took care with their work and all the wiring were cleverly hidden. They even cleaned up after themselves.

I got shading issue of my house. And Mr. Gao is very patient and the panel layout has been refined back and forth for a couple of times. The optimiser solution and REC half-cut panel addressed the shading problem in a very cost-effective approach. Yesterday, 44kw is generated and i am very happy with the result of 5kw system.

We luckily decided choosing HelioEnergy (Mr Gao Shan's team). I have installed a solar panel system on our rooftop. HelioEnergy did such great job and we got what we exactly required. The installation team worked very efficiently. They organised to install Ausgrid meter within 2 days after solar panels were installed, which is amazing. Furthermore, HelioEnergy gave us a lot of good advices during the installation process. For example, they found out that our TV antenna had fell down when they climbed on the rooftop. Immediately, they advised us to move TV antenna to a better position, and to assemble and adjusted it perfectly. They kindly help us to do all of the extra job. Now our TV signals improved a lot. Most important thing is that our solar system has been working very well since. My wife and I very much appreciate it that HelioEnergy did such an excellent job for us. Show additional information
