Solar Wholesalers 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:
It took a while to get the paper work done and meter changed with Origin, but then the Solar was installed the same day as the meter, and they did a wonderful job. Matt, Sam and the team were very well organised, professional, and talked us through a range of options. Very friendly team, and a pleasure to Work with. Show additional information
The whole team were a pleasure to deal with. They were great communicators, keeping me informed at all times during the installation process. It is obvious that all of there staff are full-time employees, they were happy, passionate about what they do and good at their jobs. Couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Very clean and professional Installation, good communication and advice on panels and inverter location. I had received cheaper quotes, decided for quality and professionalism. I would recommend Solar Wholesalers to one looking for a long term solar investment. Show additional information
All staff were easy to deal with and provided constant communication. Very happy with service and product. Show additional information
From first contact to finished installation they were great to deal with. Everything went as planned, nothing was too hard and they were very knowledgeable. Special mention to Sam, Tim and all office staff. Have recommended them to friends and clients. Show additional information
I was being chased by "hard-sell" salesmen who tried to be friendly but just frightened me with their slick talk and lack of concern for my questions and reasonable pricing alternatives. They had little knowledge of the technical aspects nor the availability of better technology. The system has not been installed yet due to the Christmas slowdown in energy companies.

Solar Wholesalers are FAR better than good, but survey does not include a rating between Good and Fantastic, hence the 4 rating overall. I have no problems with a pretty bloody good or even Very Very Good. Everything was done on time and in a very professional manner and I would have no hesitation (have done so already) to recommend them to others. Show additional information
Very happy with Solar Wholesalers, everyone I came in contact with went out their way to be helpful and answer any questions I may have asap. System was installed within 5 weeks of me getting my quote. Show additional information
Locally run business with great people working for it who know their business and care. Show additional information
I lodged an online query on the web page and Sam got back to me very quickly, we spoke of my options and unlike other companies I had rang for quotes Sam did not try to sell me the earth but gave me real options of what i would require based on home size, family size and items that would use the power. Once a quote was provided Sam gave me space to read and understand the quote and wasn't pushing me to proceed which was a welcome change. Once quote accepted and works scheduled in the crew that arrived onsite were well mannered and very polite the work they performed was to a very high standard and they stepped me through everything that was going to happen and when the power needed to be turned off and when it came back on. They walked me through the system once all complete so I understood it fully. I was extremely happy with my experience with Solar Wholesalers and can highly recommend them to anyone looking to install solar panels. Show additional information
Excellent service from word go. Solar Wholesalers kept us well informed throughout the process. The installers were here early and did an excellent job. Follow up was good with emails and extra information for our benefit. We would highly recommend Solar Wholesalers to others. Show additional information

I can't speak highly enough of Solar Wholesalers; from start to finish they were simply outstanding. Show additional information
The supplier came highly recommended and has lived up to their reputation.
The young men who installed the system worked tirelessly in very hot conditions. At all times they were relatively quiet, efficient, extremely polite and helpful. Even their radio was turned on low and unobtrusive.
Pre-and-post installation service from other head office staff has been exceptionally helpful and immediate.

This is our second time using Solar Wholesalers for our solar installation and I would't use anyone else. We've been very happy with the quality of service and products used by them. Show additional information
We have had our system up and running for 3 months. It has performed very well ..... probably exceeding our expectations? Solar Wholesalers are very good to deal with.
Quality people, quality company you will not be disappointed!

Solar Wholesalers certainly set the bench mark for customer service and value for money. Not only do they keep you informed well in advance but also are very proactive on each step of the way .. would use them again if the circumstance arises. ***** Show additional information
It was easy. And really assisted by the valuable help your team gave us. I felt I made a truly informed choice.

Incidentally also, we were canvassed by another really good company which we may have delt with in the absence of the information you were able to provide. It turned out that they were more expensive and used lower quality components. I would have had no way of knowing this without your help.

I used a couple of provider search engines, and the others linked my details to east coast tele-sales low quality/high intrusion companies. Finn's results were genuine local companies who came to my home and provided extensive information (and options) on a range of high quality equipment. And the information Finn provides on his website is OUTSTANDING for a newcomer to solar like myself. I triple checked everything, but his site was the best starting point. Love your no - nonsense, practical, humorous style, Finn! Show additional information

Sam from Solar Wholesalers was without a doubt the most knowledgeable and professional salesman I've ever encountered. Compared to the other 2 quotes they came in at by far the best price and most suitable set up for my property. The detail and time put into the quote was outstanding, whilst the others provided me with errors like have North and South the reversed in the photos of the proposed panel positioning and topped with a large amount on my south side (best roof space but the least sunny!)
I would not recommend anyone else after the service and package Solar Wholesalers provided me.

We are very pleased with our decision to use Solar Wholesalers at Mt Barker SA for our ground mounted solar system. They were very reliable, did what they said they were going to do, came at the times they said they were going to come and were very helpful with any questions we had. Even when we needed to delay installation because of our ground mount frame that we were building there was no problem and they fitted in with our needs.
I do not recommend anyone lightly but have no trouble in recommending Solar Wholesalers.

Having the correct information easily accessible, support material and the opportunity to listen to your current presentation provided the confidence to make an appropriate decision.
The next stage will be once installed does it meet the commitments made.

I obtained a number of quotes and while price was a consideration it was not the determining factor in opting to go with Solar Wholesalers. All dealings with Solar Wholesalers have been excellent and handled expediently and without fuss - from explaining (in simple terms) the system and how it will meets our needs, to the installation (both installer and electrician) and the assistance provided Solar Wholesalers administration. Overall a great experience. Show additional information

The team at Solar Wholesalers were extremely helpful all the way through the process. The system has been working away for us without any issues, and it is a relief to know that our electricity bills should be "covered" by the power we are generating. The warranties provided on the products should make the investment worthwhile in the longer term. Show additional information
Trustworthy Show additional information
Solar Wholesalers installation team were terrific, installing a 63 panel solar array on a steep roof (42 degree) higher than normal, and in close proximity to overhead power lines. It was a pleasure dealing with your company, and Sam Cranna at estimating stage put us on the right track to put in a 3 phase system to achieve best efficiency. You have a great team Thanks G.T.Whittaker for Strathalbyn Uniting Church Show additional information

Couldn't fault anything to be honest. Sam answered all my questions etc. Installation team were professional and friendly.. Show additional information
After receiving a quote from another company recommending the completely wrong system for the area in which we live it was very refreshing to find someone who actually knew what they were talking about.

This is a very professional company who provide fantastic Customer Service using quality systems and seamless installation. Every aspect of the project was explained to us in plain English and I can't recommend them enough for anyone wanting to install a quality system. No looking forward to receiving my first bill after installation to see the savings.

I dealt with Sam at Solar Wholesalers and he was fantastic. We had to lock in our price for solar early as we were in the stage of planning a house and we needed to know finances. It was on hold for over a year and there were no dramas in having it on hold for that length of time. Sam was always quick in responding to my emails which made to process very easy. Once we had the date of handover the solar system was installed within a week and the trades were fantastic. The price was amazing and $2000 less then another company quoted me. I have recommended they to a co-worker and I highly recommended them to anyone looking for a solar system. Show additional information

We actually purchased two identical systems for two properties. Unfortunately both systems interfered with TV reception. But Solarwholesalers accepted total responsibility and addressed the issue immediately at both properties at no additional cost. At one property a different type of panel was installed and at the other a new tv antenna was installed. Even though we had these issues, the customer service provided in resolving was exceptional.
From experience, for other potential customers. Watch out for panels with micro inverters. While the technology is great for what it does, beware they could potentially interfere with tv reception. Instead of micro inverters, an alternative is dc optimisers.

Also, if you need your meter changed for your solar system, be wary of how long it can take the electrical provider to make the change. It can be a frustrating wait!

Really grateful for the assistance given to me from the start, Every person I dealt with at Solar Wholesalers was very helpful. Every question I had they answered it in an easy to understand way, which I found very useful as I was learning as I went through this process. The two young men who installed my system on the day were just as polite, respectful and helpful throughout each step. I was included in every detail and choice that needed to be made on the day and that was important to me. Even the follow up process was just as helpful. I have been inspired to know that 'customer service' is still the best business plan, which is clearly incorporated into Solar Wholesalers ethos. I wish you all well and success in all future dealings and will recommend this company to others. Show additional information
Great company that simply does what they say they will at the highest quality and reasonable price. Straight forward design, installation and service.
Broke the business case down for me so I could decide the best option for my circumstances, with no push to go either way.
Overall, couldn't be happier.

Solar wholesalers matched the orientation of our system with our families power usage, which the others didn't. There was a minor issue with the installation, which they sorted out within a few hours, which was excellent. Show additional information
