Solar Power Direct Solar Reviews

I was only contacted by 2 suppliers who continued to email and call even though I asked for time to evaluate their proposals. We did not want to be pushed into making a hasty decision given the amount of money we were spending

One sales person insisted my husband needed to be with me when he explained his proposal. Unfortunately this was not appropriate for us. I took a morning of annual leave to meet with him but he was over 1/2 hour late and when I rang him to say I could not wait much longer he insisted that he had tried to ring me several times (wrong number it turns out). When he finally explained his proposal, it did not take into account potential winter shading of our roof from a neighbors tree until I pointed it out and then suggested that I ask the neighbour to prune it. There were some other things that

The other sales person pushed a really big system. He kept emailing asking if we were going ahead with his proposal but did not reply once I emailed back that we could not afford this amount so would not be going ahead with his company’s proposal.

As only 2 suppliers contacted me I did some research on your site and contacted Solar Power Direct as their business is quite close to where I live. The sales person asked me many questions (many more than any of the others) and sent me quotes for several different sizes and priced systems with written explanations of differences and did not push for a decision. They we also available to discuss issues after hours which was really helpful for us but not provided by the other companies. The sales person stopped in at our house to take photos of the house and electricity meter And assisted with all applications. Their installers were quick, polite, professional and extremely helpful.

Would definitely recommend Solar Power Direct

Martina Maglio was the most knowledgeable representative, knew all the ins and outs.
The 6.4 kW QpeakCells and Fronius Prima 5.0-1 Int have preformed as expected averaging 12.3kWh for the last 11 days, which are the worst days of the year for day light. (15 June to 25 June)

Dear Fin,
I am so grateful for your website and all that you do, even though we didn't end up with one of your installers, every company I rang couldn't believe how informed I was and up to date with current knowledge and your website and service had a huge part to play in this. Your information was informative and accurate, I found the tables with rankings of high to low "quality" of inverters and panels invaluable, as were your checklists. I have shared your website on Facebook and to many of my colleagues at work and family who are currently looking at solar
Gratefully
Kylie and Derek

I was impressed with the information I received from you, and the follow up was excellent! Just a shame we had no joy from the quotes received.

We are expecting it to be installed any day now. Holidays have meant that it was not possible before.

I got quotes from two of the 3 installers recommended by solar quotes, Braemac and Westside. Didn't go with either, Braemac weren't competitive enough, and I had doubts about Westsides quality of work. I was surprised I was only given middle rated installers by solar quotes, I then just went to their "leader board " where there were better rated installers that serviced all Adelaide including my area - got quotes from Greenlife solar, Adelaide Solar and several others. Why wasn't I offered these first?
Because I was lookingfor the best possible price but still quality components, I did more online searches and found Solar power direct, who offered a price match service and quality components at competitive prices. Had on site meeting and spoke to an electrician rather than a salesman, which I much preferred, straight forward explanations, good prices and products and a very tidy installation completed within 4 weeks. Highly recommend them and their head electrician.

What I have learnt from this process is that most solar installers have their particular brand of solar panels that they spruik. More often than not their panel brands are different making comparisons very difficult. As a result the consumer really needs to do their homework to decide which panels and installer provides the best value for money. This is where your website proved invaluable. In the end I stayed away from those companies that specialised in just solar energy because their quotes were much higher as they had to cover the costs of their sales staff. Their quotes were some $2,000 more expensive for the same panels and inverters! The best offers were from those businesses that did not just rely on solar energy for their sales. For example both Goliath Electrical and Solar Power Direct are Electrical Retail Businesses headed by Electricians or Master Electricians, and installing solar systems is only part of their overall business. Both companies had been installing solar systems for many years. In the end I went for Solar Power Direct based on price, quality of the system and experience of the installer. I purchased 5.72kw system with the latest G4 QCells and a SMA 5000 TL Inverter for $8,000. I was very happy with this price especially as I am getting the latest G4 QCell panels to hit the market. I hope to have the system installed sometime in July. Show additional information

As I have said, due to delay in the meter install I have not yet been able to assess an accurate savings performance, but can say the indications are good as my last two bills were in credit. Should the results confirm the indications, the above ratings may well be better. Show additional information

I was very unsure about what package would be best and which company to go through as I had sent off numerous quote requests online. I found when speaking to sales people the better companies asked quite specific questions, like about my roof space and how much I wanted to spend and how much I was wanting to save on my bill. After getting all my quotes it was easy to see which systems were the best value for money and explained the installation and rebate conditions. Show additional information
Looked at many different brands of panels and inverters online and through friends who have them. Went with SPD because of products and price. The good service was a bonus and the techs turned up on time! Show additional information
