Solar Australia Solar Reviews

We follow up with all reviewers after 12 months to see how their system is going since it was installed. These are all the reviewers who have responded to our 1 year follow up:
Out of the 3 quotes Solar Aus actually quoted on the inverter and features I wanted instead of trying to push me to other inferior inverters (that they were probably trying to shift from old stock).
Although there was a 2 month delay on the Fronius due to lack of supply, the eventual install went very well. We had 13.8kW installed on the shed with a 12.5kW inverter, the inverter was installed inside the shed in the location where I requested, and the system has been performing well. The team of 3-4 guys had the numerous panels installed neatly by late morning/early afternoon with no shortcuts taken.
Had some initial issues over the following weeks with the system cutting out due to high grid voltage, the technician returned at no charge to adjust some tolerances on the inverter which have mostly fixed the issue. Ausgrid are attending next week to re-tap the pole transformer serving our farm, which should fix it for good.
I'd highly recommend the team, very thorough, including the detailed information booklet handed over at the end of the job with expected solar outputs each month, circuit diagrams, system designs etc which I've never had on any of my other 4 solar systems in the past.

We have had to get the transformer capability checked by SP Ausnet so are still waiting on them until the system can be fitted. Show additional information

Lance was extremely professional, when he realised I had done some research he was able to move into providing more in depth information.

The components quoted are of a higher Tier 1 quality than another provider, and while there has been a delay in install they have been in constant communication.

Lance was able to provide good information about possible upgrade to batteries long term which was another positive

Due to delay in availability of the inverter agreed on others were offered but not as highly recommended, the install has been delayed but the sales persons have been keeping me informed Show additional information

This was overall a great experience - your website with heaps of reliable, simple and factual information, the three suppliers who quoted, the green loan process and the final installation. I am relieved and pleased it all worked so well.

I am waiting for it to be switched on, so cannot comment on how it all works yet.

Thank you

Had a number of issues with salesman not being honest with me. A main reason for going with Solar Australia was that I was promised it would be done before Christmas. He said the 20th December. I contacted them on the 19th and was told there was a problem getting Fronius inverter. So would be in the new year. If this was an issue then I should not have had to contact Solar Australia to find there was an issue. This did not suit as I was going to India in the new year then back to work. I sent an email asking for my deposit to be returned.
I was contacted by the manager within minutes who said he knew nothing about me wanting it done before Christmas even though it was clearly communicated to the salesman. He said my panels AND Fronius inverter was in stock and scheduled for 8 January. This did not suit as I was in India. Someone was not being honest.
He made special arrangements for the system to be installed on 28 December. I had arranged for a 5.3kw system using Trina panels. He said I could have a 6kw Talesun system for the same price and in his opinion were better than the Trina panels. I chose the 6kw system even though Talesun was not on your list.

It all seems to be working well.

The process did cause a bit of stress which I wanted to avoid by going through Solar Quotes.

On the 27th October, we had a 6kw(20 x 300w panels) system, 5kw Goodwe hybrid inverter, and 10kw BYD BBox battery storage system installed. With the exception of the battery system being delivered the previous day, the installation was completed most efficiently and professionally in one day: no fuss, no mess, no broken tiles, and clear explanations and instructions.We were especially happy!

I would have rated all the above categories as "Fantastic" if it hadn't been for the Goodwe inverter: the yellow Wi-fi LED, unpredictably, went from solid to blinking 4 times which indicated a server problem. I tried several times to have the matter fixed or solved. Eventually, several days ago, I received a phone call from a Solar Australia engineer who, after listening to my narrative of what was happening, explained very clearly why the wi-fi LED was blinking, and reassured me that our system is functioning well, and that there is nothing to worry about. As I understand it, the number of inverters trying to communicate with the Goodwe portal during the day has caused the problem which Goodwe is presently working on. The glitch has no effect on the recording or presentation of data to the apps related to the system; it certainly has no effect on our energy distribution; all our needs are being met without using energy from the grid, and we are supplying energy to the grid.

I would advise any consumer with a similar problem to demand a conversation with one of the company's engineers.

All this being said, I highly recommend Solar Australia; they are highly professional and their products appear to be sound quality. We are very happy that we contracted them to install our solar system.

The process, with recommended company, was a very easy process. We. Hchose a company that we could have follow up service with and used reputable installers employed by themselves, not subcontracted. I have rated good as I believe fantastic requires a service that could not be improved on, and even though the service was very high quality, we have nothing else to gauge by. We thank Solar Australia for a great service. Show additional information

All good Show additional information
I received two quotes. 1 from Energy Aware and 1 from Solar Australia Port Macquarie.
Solar Aust. actually visited the site, climbed up on the roof and worked out what was needed.
Energy Aware just worked things out on Google maps which to my mind is a waste of time and quoted me from that.
Solar Aust. was the dearer of quotes but the inverter(Fronius compared to SMA) was from my research a higher quality product. Panels were on a par quality wise but the Solar Aus panels were 290 watts compared to 270 watts from Solar aware.
Brett from Solar Aus. Port Macquarie was very prompt with his communications and explained every step of the process in layman's terms.
He even negotiated the price down around $500 because he could bulk order some materials which sealed the deal.
The only problem we had was Essential Energy didn't get the project approved for when the panels were supposed to be installed which was beyond the control of Solar Australia.

Clearly explained all systems and answered all questions. when they said they would do something they did it on the time stipulated Show additional information
Solar Australia were responsive, helpful and not at all pushy. They seem to really know their stuff, and gave good advice to suit our particular situation (some shading early/late in the day - recommended micro-inverters). Also they are offering Tier 1 products with a good reputation. Show additional information
I am most grateful I discovered Solar Quotes website.

I had reached the point of overload concerning PV solar investigation and finding a quality supplier and installer.

Solar Quotes directed 3 reputable companies to make contact. each was businesslike, professional, courteous, providing information and or quote suitable for my residence.

This is the reason I am now have a PV solar system and the decision has not been postponed for another year.
