Smart energy have been fantastic to deal with from the beginning.

I did not want a cheap option that had no after sales service and Smart energy provided great sales support and met all my needs. The were prompt and provided great advice on product choice. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting solar. Show additional information

Awesome to deal with, really great service and advice on the whole project.

The guys at Smart energy were excellent to deal with. They worked with me to get the system I needed to get the most of out my solar. They were very prompt and efficient in developing quotes and helping with government rebates and finance options.
The installers they used were very professional and efficient and communication throughout the installation was great.
They also helped with my application to Origin for the upgrades to the metering and made the process very smooth.

Excellent, very happy

Our representative Robert Ford has looked after us ever since his first visit nearly a year ago. The installation went as scheduled and has been saving us money ever since they were switched on. A recent follow up meeting with Robert to discuss whether we are on the best deal from our supplier was very helpful Show additional information

Very happy

All the staff were super efficient. They arrived when they said they would and worked solidly during the installation. It was clear the men were experienced installers. The process of sales installation and connection to the grid was so straight forward it's almost unreal. We are very happy. Show additional information

Very Good

I won't give a full 5 rating as that would seem like its to good to be true!. But my words will give them a 5. Sales was easy and understandable. We had some hurdles during install but the Smart Energy staff sorted everything smoothly. Communication with the team was excellent, Liam was easy to work with and he understood it all 100%. The installers still have the panels to finish but there base rail and wiring work has been done very well. Installers are well mannered young fella's. The system overall was more than I hoped for, but the quality and standards Smart Energy stand by is worth the extra. Show additional information

Seamless process, met all expectations

The sales process was focused, the sales rep was knowledgeable, able to answer many questions and provide a quote related to our current provider. The installation was seamless. The guys were punctual, friendly, non intrusive, all about getting the job done.

Professional outfit.

The company was well represented and were able to answer all our questions. They managed the whole process from start to finish whilst keeping us up to date with where we were in the process. Show additional information
I was initially seceptical but allowed a home visit to explain the system. They suggested I look into various systems and prices. I did and they were comparable but gave interest free time payments. I had to have my installation put off several times because of the weather, but they were always on line to organise another date. The day of installation was good. The Electrician Thomas was pleasant and was easy to deal with. He had a team who were polite and respectful of my property.The installation took several hours. When done he explained the system to me and how to download the app. His explanation was good but he spoke very quickly so u tube the app procedure. The team left a bit of rubbish around, but I cleaned that up. Thomas and his crew were a pleasure to deal with. I cannot comment on the system as it has only been working for 2 days. I really hope the after sales service is as good as they promised. So far so good. Show additional information

Solar energy Sale & Installation

From start to finish the process was excellent. Jarvis was first on the phone, he explained the whole system very well, with quotes, size of solar systems, costs now & future expectations. Answered many query questions. Jackson was the organiser, assessed style & size of system suited to the residence. Had to deal with son (owner) & mother(resident), doubling up on all conversations. Many photos viewed when assessing installation, this process took time, with changes etc, but Jackson made sure the best size system was ordered. The installation by Rob & assistant was very efficient. Took 2 days, they were punctual, quiet, & no mess. Rob explained operation of solar system, installing an app, showing the quantities of power produced & where it was sent. Jackson provided great customer service, checking up, after installation that I was happy with the working & installation, etc. Has even provided tips into checking energy provider. Thanks to all involved Show additional information

Great Experience.

We are very happy with Smart Energy. From the original discussions with the salesperson (who explained everything very well), to the installers (who were punctual, professional, and cleaned up after the job). We also appreciated the help from our installer in setting up the app.
So, thanks again, Smart Energy.

Fantastic Job

The whole process was so easy and efficient. From the initial technical/sales discussion, which made things very clear around the quality driven choice of components of the system and anticipated savings on electricity costs, to the solar installation which took only one day and then the installation of a smart meter and connections within a week. All happened really quickly, a top quality job Show additional information

Good quality

Smart Energy Group use good quality panels and easy to arrange. It was raining on my installation but they called me straight away and let me know when they would be artound. Good communication and arranged my meter. Show additional information

Smooth from start to finish

We had a 5kw system installed in January and waited for the bill but would definitely recommend these guys to anyone. Didn’t have to put up a cent to get it installed and the service team go above and beyond Show additional information
The sales rep (or specialist as they refer to them) may tell the truth, but it is not necessarily relevant to your circumstances. After sales service & follow up leaves a LOT to be desired. Show additional information
We found the complete service from contact to installation seamless. We are very happy with our new solar system and would thoroughly recommend Smart Energy Group. Show additional information
Installation was cancelled twice. Not happy.Needed to constantly ring customer service and ask for documentation regarding vic state gov rebate. Suggest they create a running sheet of what the vic state gov need. However dealing with them i find they may have trouble organizing this simple task. Once again very poor serivce NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL.

Hi, As you can see from this review, the poor service that the customer, Rod, is referring too is actually regarding the VIC Rebate. And we all know what a nightmare that has been! Thanks, Elliot. Show additional information
Took out a 4-year payment plan and paid it off within a year. Very easy to get hold of on the phone Show additional information
Steven explained it really well from the sales team and the Installers helped set up the wifi for me as I’m a bit of a technophobe. Really happy with the service and would recommend to anyone Show additional information
Bought 2 Kw system 8 years ago and it’s not been producing much and we have still been getting big bills, we decided to replace this system and add 24 panels. Our previous system had allot of shading which could have been avoided, now the new system is placed in a much better position. Show additional information
Really easy process, from contact to install was around 3 weeks. Added more panels and a new inverter to give our old system a boost. Thanks Harvey Show additional information
Thanks for all the help never let us down and especially a big thanks to Mel who did all of the paper work follow ups thanks Mel for all the help I would recommend smart energy to everyone Show additional information
I had a 6kw system installed at my property in Albion Park 3 weeks ago. The process went really smooth from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company. Show additional information
After looking into solar for the past 6 months I called smart energy group and Connor called me back to arrange a time to do a solar viability assessment. He spent roughly an hour and a half at my place in the end we found a 6.4 kila watt system was the best for me.
2 weeks later our installers arrived. Calvin was our installer he was on-time and talked me thorough the process before starting the work. Within a few hours they were done and had showed me how to work my converter and cleared up all their rubbish.
We are now waiting on ergon to fit out meter.

I was very impressed with the salesman, Beau, who came to my house and explained the system and how it operates in great detail.

I would definitely recommend this company to anyone else contemplating a Solar System for their home or business. Their followup service was also second to none.

Excellent experience, simple finance application through Classic was smooth.. Install was very good just had a couple of delays due to the weather Show additional information
I planned to buy a solar system for the last few years but was waiting for the prices to come down and the kW’s yo go up. Smart Energy Group offered a very competitive price and an outstanding service when they installed my new 6kW system last month in Newcastle. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Thanks guys,

System was installed a while back but so far i've had nothing but good things to say. Anytime i've had any questions its been a breeze, the system is performing as told and my bill is reduced.

I wanted batteries but at the time i was told to hold off a year or 2 which when i run the numbers made perfect sense.

From the representatives promoting and informing, to the 3 courteous young installers plus all the help from office staff I could not be happier all round with this company. There should be more companies like this, I would recommend this company to any one Show additional information
Had the guys over in March 2017 to install my system. Overall I was very impressed with the efficiency and quality of the installation and cost vs return on investment. My usage wasn't over the top (14kw) But it was explained that 5kw realistically was the best option regardless, given my roof space. Show additional information
