Very happy

Very professional, came when they said they would & happy to answer questions. Would recommend . Well done Show additional information

Great system so far.

I did not have any dramas apart from a small brake down in communications.

I was expecting a call letting me know what day the next week my solar was to be installed, but got a call letting me know they were there to install the system.

Apart from that everything was fine, the system was inspected the next day, and I think I received confirmation of my solar being registered the following week.

The system seems to be producing a little more than expected. They even helped set up the online monitoring.

I ended up buying a better quality system than planed due to it not costing all that much more than a cheaper system.

A less than friendly encounter.

Of the three quotes, one was placing the panels on the neighbour's roof and I chose the less expensive of the others. I used Solar Quotes' information and checklists to scrutinise the offer, but found the salesperson defensive, making passive-aggressive "courtesy calls" to the point where I was wishing that I had worked with the slightly more expensive firm whose contact person was relaxed, helpful and friendly.
The installation was satisfactory and the system seems to be running well.
As it turned out the installation was not fully completed, partly due to a misunderstanding on my part. When we got through the misunderstandings I admitted this and left the door open, as it were, for them to negotiate a resolution, but until the issue was taken up by Solar Quotes the matter remained unresolved.
Solar quotes put me in touch with the owner who promptly arranged for the completion. All is well now but I would not recommend this company in its present structure.

Solar 1 the Professionals

From the outset Solar 1 were very helpful and professional - even though we are experiencing Covid-19 restrictions their rep visited us at home with the correct distancing and mask protocols being

Whenever we had contact by phone or email the arranged times were always met.

Installation was performed as planned and the guys were courteous and knew their stuff.

Grid connection is in process at the moment and all is progressing well.
We're happy with the whole involvement with Solar 1 and highly recommend them!

Quality panels, professional service

The quoting process was really easy. Happy to beat the price from their competitors. Installation was slightly delayed due to staffing issue which was beyond their control. The installation was done smoothly without issues. Overall very happy with the chosen panels and inverter, and I have no problem recommending this company. Show additional information

Great solution for 2 phase setup

Solar 1 Electrical came up with a great solution for our 2 phase installation. Powercor were being quite restrictive with what we could install by we are very happy that we got the size system that we wanted. Show additional information

Great Installer. Friendly, Competent and knowledgeable.

First contact from the Sales/Customer service team was friendly, not too pushy and the right kind of persistent for me to keep the process rolling. After we had the quote come through, assistance with organising the government subsidy in Vic was appreciated, stepping through the process etc was fairly seamless.

Only a couple of hiccups with the installation, the first being that the panels and inverter quoted were not available (shortages), but these were supplemented with a satisfactory replacement, and ended up getting the original panels anyway, only the inverter switched from Fronius to SMA (I am not sure if this makes a huge difference overall). Had to reschedule the installation once but as I am pretty flexible was OK, they had poor weather on the day but seemed to push through. Three guys all worked on the installation, all were polite, cleaned up after themselves and did their job could not ask for more really .

Customer service so far has been great, notifications on the process etc, we are in the process of the grid connection, but so far seems to be progressing smoothly.

Over all, from the start until now I have been happy with the process and all contact I have had with the installer and I would recommend them to anyone.

I chose this company for various reasons including that a person came to speak with me personally and do a house/roof inspection to obtain accurate details. Other companies asked me to climb a ladder, take roof pics & then send them through to obtain a quote, which I thought was poor customer service.

While there are various ins and outs to getting solar on, the company I chose were extremely helpful and explained everything each time another matter arose.

Excellent process and install

Great consultation and quotation process, good support through the application process, and an amazing job on the actual install. Show additional information
Solar 1 Electrical were very informative and answered all our needs, nothing was to much trouble and helped us through the rebate process doing most of the paperwork for us. Show additional information
Two quotes involved a visit to my home. The other was based on a phone discussion only.
Solar 1 seemed to listen to me the most. The other two were interested in dealing with my electrical needs now - whereas Solar 1 actually listened when I talked about future needs and what sort of system I was actually after. Solar 1 and I had a sensible discussion about meeting my needs/wants - whereas I felt a bit "bulldozed" by the other two and they proposed systems they wanted to install rather than what I wanted.
They all pretty much offered recommended panels (from your list) and a Fronius Inverter. Solar 1 gave me the option of Solaredge DC optimisers and a Solaredge inverter for not much more than the plain-vanilla no optimisers and Fronius Inverter option.

There was a glitch with 2 inverters not communicating together. Installation was completed and they were back in a week to fix the issue. Show additional information
I spent some time researching the solar panels story thanks to information from your business and other information I was able to gather
I feel I have a system that suits my needs and cost.

The time that I put into the research was well worth it there is no doubt that it can be a bit confusing when you first start the process
but I felt I had obtained enough information to make my decision.

Dealing with Clinton and the installers at Solar1 Electrical was a pleasure. The whole project was swift and hassle free and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for solar. I did my research and I was confident that I was getting the quality panels, inverter and workmanship at a good price. No pressure, no rush either. I also really liked that Clinton visited my place after the installation (not just before when trying to gain your business) and helped me navigate the Vic gov solar rebate bureaucracy. Excellent customer service. Show additional information

I had done a reasonable amount of research before obtaining 4 quotes from local installers.Out of the 4 companies Peter from Solar 1 was the only one that offered to visit us on site and discuss our requirements.Contacted Solar 1 on Monday 4th march Peter was able to see us that afternoon.Wednesday 6th they had followed up with 3 different options.
Wednesday 13th after reviewing all the suppliers quotes we decided to go with Solar 1. Two weeks later our 10KW system had been completed with no hassles - no fuss - and
most of all no rubbish left behind. Thanks to Peter and all the team at Solar 1 for a totally professional job from start to finish.

I would like to thank you for your advice re solar suppliers and installers. The installation caused little or no interruption and payment was not required until the inspection was made. Show additional information
Good information given by installer. Talked us out of a larger system as we wouldn't get the value out of it! No rush or hard sell. Answered all our questions. Should be installed next week depending on weather. Show additional information

From the first point of contact all staff of this company were professional and easily the best supplier out of the 6 I spoke to.

Would highly recommend Solar 1 Electrical to anyone.

Quite a lot of suppliers seemed more interested in a sale rather than what we needed.

Peter from Solar 1 took the time to visit my home, discuss what was best for us and was prompt and professional at all times.

Look no further if you are in central Victoria for a supplier of Solar and give the one that advertises the most a miss.

A little slow in responding to emails and phone calls, hopefully this is just a problem with being around Christmas/New Year.
Peter is the only supplier who came on site and discussed actual requirements and where I wanted the panels located etc.

All appears to be done very professionally with little disruption to our property. Solar ! electrical were also the only company that actually visited our premises and made constructive comments on our proposed installation. We felt comfortable with their recommendations.
Other companies contacted only gave us emailed or verbal quotes.

Of the three solar system quotes I received, only Solar1 Electrical offered to come to the premises to talk to us and check out where the solar panels would be installed.
The other 2 companies emailed me brochures and asked me to pick a solar package. One solar company did not even get the address correct, tried to do a quote on the house next door.

Peter was the only one out of all the quotes that came out to look at where I wanted it and check out other locations as well. Could not fault the service. Very approachable and knowing how busy they are at this time I was impressed. Thanks Peter and the team, will always recommend you. Show additional information
