Getting Solar was a Breeze!

The whole process from initial quote to overview and discussion of which system suits us best was fantastic. I felt comfortable with the knowledge and advice given by the team at PSD. Pricing was competitive and installion was simple and easy. Would highly recommend Krisit-Lee and team to everyone I know :)

Very Professional

Kristy Lee knows Solar and was super helpful during the planning stages. The install was on time and went smoothly. PSD provided the best price with the highest quality components and most inclusions. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to family and friends.

Professional friendly service

We had 4 quotes. Found PSD to offer the most suitable system for our needs. All staff were professional and friendly. All our questions were answered, Instillation went well. They are a local company and we have confidence that we will have back up if needed in the future.

Great communication from Scott and Kristi Lee

Scott and a crew of installers turned up at 7am just as promised. They worked all day and by 4pm they were finished and tidied up so well that I didn’t have to do anything. All the crew were polite, the system works really well and Platinum have been in contact to keep me up to date on batteries. I definitely recommend Scott and Kristi Lee

Excellent company!!

PSD was so easy to deal with! Super knowledgeable and stepped us through every step of the process. They came out to quote & measure, gave us an image of what it would like, estimates on savings, and away we went! Install was quick and our panels look great! I can’t recommend Kristie, Scott and the team highly enough!

Absolutely faultless from start to finish

Salesperson was on point - well prepared & conversant in every aspect; able to address every concern, reassuring & informed. Coordination of installation date & time was exactly as expected. Installers were punctual, informative, efficient & obliging. They left the entire area spotlessly clean & kept me informed of progress. Customer service couldn't have been better including connection to the grid & accurate prediction of my providers post-installation actions. The entire Platinum team are completely professional & should take justified pride in their service delivery. Original ratings

Perfect from start to finish

From initial contact to install, everything went as smoothly as possible.

The quoting process was great, went through various systems and set ups. Different panels, inverters - tremendous knowledge, very clear on what to expect and timeframes to complete the installation.

Once decided which way to go, it was clear and easy to move ahead. Locked in install date.

Installation date. Turned up on time, introduced themselves, very polite, explained how it would come together. Efficient, cleaned up after themselves. Setup the monitoring system, went through how it all works. Connected to the grid.

Customer Service, excellent. Warranty and maintenance manual quickly followed the install - same day.

If you are looking for a solar system, this is a company I highly recommend. Can't imagine any company could do it any better. The benchmark is set!

Great Company and Customer Service (PDS)

We have to express our thanks to PDS for their help and understanding when our Old Solar System broke down, we rang their number that a Friend gave to us and said they were a Good Reliable Company. The Quote we received was acceptable, as we are Pensioners with limited Income. Once Quote was Accepted the New Bigger System was Installed by a great team of boys and they kept us informed on what they were doing all the time, then once completed they cleaned up all the old system and rubbish and took it away, which pleased us no end. The next day Kristie-Lee rang to see if we were "Happy" and to ring her at anytime if we needed to. Overall we would reccomend Platinum Solar Designs to anyone with a solar problem as they are RELIABLE, GOOD WORK ETHICS, FAIR QUOTE, GOOD OLD CUSTOMER SERVICE IS STILL ALIVE.

Fantastic and friendly Installer

We engaged PSD to supply and install a 10.4Kw system after our neighbour had used and recommended them. This was completed early Dec 2023. They were very friendly and helpful and were more than happy to Quote on the removal of our old 3KW system. This had been an issue for me and I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a problem or a bigger expense for us. PSD were so easy to deal with, and the fact they were local, I was more than happy with going ahead. So much so that we engaged them to supply and install a 6.6Kw for my Wife’s Parents. This system was only installed this week. Kristy and Scott were easy going and so helpful. They were a one-stop shop and arranged everything, from beginning to end. They walked us through every step of the process. I highly recommended them to anyone who is thinking of installing a Solar System. Now looking forward to reaping the benefits and saving $$$.

Great job, nice crew!

Outstanding service & quality

We recently had a 10KW solar system installed by Platinum Solar Design at Kiama.
Kristy & Scott made the entire process incredibly easy, right from the initial design to administering the rebates & finally the install.
They even organised the install to take place whilst we were on holidays, to minimise the disruption for us.
We are extremely happy with our solar system & our electricity bill was less than $30 for the quarter just gone.
We would highly recommend Platinum Solar Design to any one considering solar installation, for their awesome service, competitive pricing & outstanding quality.
Thanks Kristy & Scott.

Super helpful local installer. Great price for what was supplied.

Happy with the whole process!
PSD have been super thorough and helpful from quoting through installation and beyond. They’re now in the process of managing the transition to a solar friendly plan with our energy retailer, and everything is going smoothly.
Highly recommended!

A Gem of the South Coast

Kristi & Scott have been phenomenal from start to finish for the installation of our system.

We had 21 panels with an 8kw inverter installed.
Throughout the process the team were there to help with queries, recommendations and explanations on all aspects of the install.

The team have gone above and beyond to ensure that the system was fit for purpose, as well as effectively installed.

I would recommend them as an installer to anyone that asks without hesitation.
The system looks great, and is performing more effectively than predicted, what a bonus.

Friendly, efficient local service.

The 3 quoting companies were all very professional and helpful.
The installation was smooth and quick.
Customer service so far has been excellent. PSD monitors my system for me and the fact that their premises is literally around the corner from me means they're instantly available should problems arise - or I can drop around and see them anytime.

Highly recommend

PSD were extremely patient and efficient at all stages of the process- from the first call, the site visit, quote and many questions. Their customer service was A1. The installation was carried out by an amazing team of technicians - in less than a day - who left my front yard how they found it! They did a great job setting up the panels and invertor. I have my solar panels operating for a few days now. Very excited to see lower bills in future and doing my bit for the planet.

A Real Pleasure To Deal With.

I was recommended this company by several people and can I say they did not disappoint. From the start Kristi-Lee was always available to answer all our questions and made the design process very easy. Scott and Brad and their team did a fantastic job during the installation dealing with any issues that arose very professionally.
After sales support has been as good as the presales both Scott and Kristi-Lee making themselves available when needed.
I would highly recommend Platinum Solar Designs

10 months later we asked Anthony: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

The system is performing great, however, I wish I had space for more panels on the roof.

I'm not a huge fan of the Fronius Solar.Web monitoring application as I found I needed more granular information on my power consumption. To get around this I used the Fronius integration with Home Assistant which does the job nicely.

Based on this information I had to do further work on my hot water system power usage with a timer switch / contactor. No point heating the water during peak time of use rates from the grid and not using the solar off the roof.

Now if only battery prices would come down I could start on the next part.

Fantastic company to deal with

From initial contact, right through to installation, the PSD team were a pleasure to deal with. Kristi-Lee ran through the whole process with us and was in constant communication about install date. Installation was a breeze with the team being punctual, polite and tidy.
Would highly recommend PSD for all your solar needs.

Installation of New Solar PV System

Amazing and professional Business. Quotation was competitive, sales staff polite and helpful, nothing was an issue and any concerns I raised were resolved. I live in an extremely windy location, and an immediate resolution of installing additional roof brackets was provided. Installation was seamless and programmed when suitable to my calendar. Onsite work persons were polite, understood work requirements and explained the installation processes. The PV System was in place and operating on the same day, my property left clean and tidy. Business staff immediately registered the installation with my Electricity Provider for their Smart Meter configuration, plus provided an immediate internet link access to my new PV System via iDevice Application. Post installation questions and service has been excellent therefore I have no hesitation in rating Platinum Solar Designs P/L – Kiama, the maximum rating of 5/5 for this survey.

Great service

Platinum were great to deal with through the whole process of pricing, installation and post completion. Everything was clearly explained in terms of how the system would work and how the tender price was structured. The installation team arrived on time, were friendly, courteous and professional. i was very happy with the quality of the installation. Platinum co-ordinated the grid connection upon completion and the system was up and running from day one.

Top shelf at a value price

From the beginning of selecting the right combination of solar panel system and battery system to scheduling installation, Scott and Kristi were easy to work with but most importantly took care to NOT overpromise and underdeliver.

The install team (Brad-1, Brad-2 & Christian) arrived when they said would, polite, safe, neat & tidy workmanship and made sure to walk me through what they we going to install and then walk me through when completed. No dramas at any time.

Thoroughly satisfied and would highly recommend them.

Excellent from start to finish!

Initial contact was very professional. The team answered all our queries openly and honestly.
Pricing was appropriate for the system and the work involved in the installation.

Installation of the initial panels and the Tesla battery later were all timely and went as planned. Great team who were polite and respectful during all aspects of both installation. Explained every aspect of the process and worked with us about where items might best be installed. Throughly cleaned and tidied all areas both inside and out when completed.

All elements were dealt with by the team from dealing with local electricity suppliers to setting up the app(s) (on Apple apps for us) to check and manage the systems.which was great!

Lastly some minor issues were raised by us and the team responded promptly- by text, email snd phone and on one occasion came and checked and replaced a fuse.they have always been more than helpful and extremely prompt .

My wife and I could not ask fur a better service - Thanks Platinum Solar Designs - Kristi-Lee and Scott and their team!

Awesome job! The team could not have been more helpful on the pre-sales stage and the install guys were great.
