Original Review on 29-06-2015:

We sought quotes from Solar Quotes referred people and from other sources. We did a LOT of homework beforehand and during the process and used the Solar Quotes site as one of our reference points. The prices offered and the types of offerings ranged widely. One company provided a quote based on their idea of what we need - not listening to our concerns and not visiting the site. Others came, saw, discussed, advised and made a range of offers. The installer we went with was referred by a highly informed engineer friend. He came and carefully considered all the issues at hand and gave good advice. His quote was well below all others and included highly regarded panels and inverter system. He then came and personally installed the equipment in a first class manner.

The key discoveries we have made: 1. Do your homework. Not all systems are the same. 2. Most (but not all) salespeople are charming. You are buying complex technical equipment, not charm. The installer we used was extremely well experienced and informed AND charming. 3. The solar electricity scene is changing quickly. It is important to consider whether you will be able to efficiently adapt your system during its lifetime (e.g. adding batteries, more panels, capacity to charge an electric car, moving from gas to efficient electric heating/hot water) because these are on the 3-10 year horizon for many households. 4. Get more quotes because that can yield really good financial and quality dividends on your investment.

We are pleased to have installed this system. Solar Quotes provided a good starting and an ongoing reference point for the journey we took.

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

Yes indeed. We are delighted that our electricity consumption is no longer a burden on the environment. Our electricity bills have more than halved and we export more renewable energy than we import. While we do not benefit from a high feed in tariff, we are pleased to feel as though we are doing our bit for the environment.

With the good quality system installed at a very reasonable cost by an outstanding installer (Solar Electric), we have much to be grateful for. Our daughter also used Solar Electric to install a very small system in her inner suburban residence and it has also performed splendidly. Both we and our daughter are delighted to have had the highly professional services of David, the proprietor of Solar Electric. He went to great trouble to ensure that we would have a solid, reliable and efficient system installed to a high standard but at a price that was a good deal less than the other four quotes we received.

The lesson for all is do your homework; know what you want; make sure those offering know what they are talking about; and be aware that big advertisers have big overheads. The reliable information on the Solar Quotes website is a good place to start your mission.
