Solar Choice Australia Solar Reviews

Very impressed with the process approach they used together with integrated technology. The initial quote, proposal, installation and system approach used were well considered and all worked first time. The Fronius solareeb app is fantastic and we are much better managers of power now.

I received quotes from quite a few providers (both sourced from Finn's site and external)
In the end I went with Solar Choice Australia (based in Somerton Park) as they were local and great to deal with.

Had 2 systems installed (over a period of a month and a half).
Rob (sales) was excellent to deal with, highly recommended. Easily contactable and very pleasant. No hard sell and was very accommodating of my various changes.
He dealt with all the necessary approvals from SAPN efficiently.
Gavin (installer) and his crew were fantastic! Knowledgeable and up to the challenge of the design we went with. Going above and beyond what was expected.
He spent nearly a week on this project as the install encompassed multiple orientations, tilts and different inverter systems (both string and optimized).
It rained on the install days and they powered through...
Also very responsive even after the install has been completed.

Would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.
Only hiccup was the increase in pricing (through no fault of theirs, STC rates had dropped drastically during this period)
Even then the final cost was extremely competitive.

The final design went through many iterations, but the final result is one I'm very pleased with.
The installed system is a fairly large residential system.
I didn't go with the cheapest system but one with quality components that should perform well for many years to come.
Next step would be batteries once they come down in price sufficiently.

I would recommend doing your homework, ask questions on the Whirlpool site and reach out to Finn (if you have any further questions) before making your final decision.
Don't forget to add on some form of consumption monitoring to see what you actually produce/generate, consume, export and save.

Excellent service and install process. Date that was requested was available and install done very quickly. I was very wary of getting a system as much as I really wanted to as everything that you hear about companies but honestly Rob was a pleasure to deal with and changed the plan numerous times at my request. The same system with a different company was over $1000 more and they couldn't install until it the new year. Highly recommended!! Show additional information
The installers were friendly and professional. Show additional information

Rob was very at answering all the questions I had and provided good advice also.
I was looking at a Tailored system with specific hardware, and he has provide me just that.
I got 6 different quotes and his business came firs out of 3 for best value and also his good review.
The system was installed within 2 weeks. His contractor was very good, friendly and professional.
I have been using the system for a week now and It's performing very well so far.

Thank you for your help in choosing the right company and our experience was simply fantastic. Show additional information
The system chosen was exactly the same as supplied by the other tenderers. The prices quoted by the other tenderers was between $600 and $2000 more than that quoted by Solar Choics Australia. All of them were very pleasant, approachable and professional in their dealings. Show additional information
I can not comment on the qulaity of the system as it has yet to be connected by SA Power Networks! The installation was completed by a very pleasant pair of young men on 17 December without a hitch. (One of the quotes you recommended I had already contacted; they had refused to take the work as they could not guarantee their ability to cope with an old terracotta tiled roof - breakages were the issue.) However, SA Power Networks advised that installation of the import/export meter could not happen until 13 February!

I have had a Fronius inverter installed and initial testing indicated it will work well. The panels are Canadian.

Finn, I can not praise your work highly enough and have already recommended you to a friend. I am looking forward to 13 February.

Energy Matters sent a sales person out and then, due to apparent illness, a different sales person sent me a quote but came out to 10k more than what was discussed onsite. There was some back and forth of emails and phone conversations but they left an unprofessional and pushy impression and put me entirely off looking at a battery based system for now.

Rob from Solar Choice Australia went above and beyond and made the process an absolute pleasure! Ended up with a 6.34kW system.

I chose Solar Choice Australia because Rob gave me a simple yet comprehensive presentation with no hard sell. The company is local, has a showroom and has been around for a long time.All these factors gave me confidence. The whole process was completed in 8 days, Rob did all the communication with SA Power Networks. Total professionalism from start to finish. My neighbour has since had Solar installed by Solar Choice Australia and is also pleased with the process. Well done Rob and your installers! Show additional information
A good local established company upfront and honest. Show additional information
Better off getting somebody who knows electrical installations to visit your site rather than just a salesperson. Show additional information
Paid a deposit with a tentative date for installation about 4 weeks later. No feedback from company and when I rang they informed me that there was a delay with the panels from Germany.
Left it for another 3 weeks and had to ring again - apparently the shipment of panels had been damaged in the Queensland floods and they are waiting on a further shipment for Germany.
New tentative date for installation is early April
Would encourage this company to get on the front foot and keep their customers informed.
