About Solar Wholesalers, Solar Installers

Not only this, but Solar Wholesalers believes it is small enough to offer a personalised service, while big enough to have strong relationships with suppliers to offer competitive prices.

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:
This is the 8th system solar wholesalers have installed for me, and the price, service and workmanship has been perfect every time. I will never use anyone else. Cant recommend them more strongly. 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

Still waiting the new smart meter from Simply Energy.
Solar Wholesalers provided Simply Energy with all the correct details of the meter NMI and the address of the installation.
Simply Energy made a mistake in the address for installation of the meter and when I brought their mistake to their attention they put me back from an instal date of 7 December 18 to 3 January 19. ie I have a functional solar system on the roof and are waiting for the installation of the smart meter.
I have been given no valid reason for this treatment and I consider the meter instal process to be unreasonably slow with very poor communication and a lack of respect for the customer.

Good team that from quoting to installed ???? Show additional information
Actually considered our usage patterns and designed a system accordingly. Co-ordinated meter change on same day as install to ensure system could be fully tested and up and running as soon as installed. Communication was brilliant from start to finish. Show additional information

Very easy to deal with and very flexible. On the day of installation it was rainy/windy and the guys just kept working through it all. System looks and performs great so far. Show additional information
Our Energy provider was Origin and although they showed up for the meter change they were not able to perform the work. The Origin subcontractors could not wait 10 mins and told the solar installers that they will be back later in the day. Obviously they did not come back but we had to schedule another appointment so we end up paying for a system that we could not utilise. Show additional information
Brilliant service, price and quality.
I shopped around and asked a lot of friends who to go with. Solar Wholesalers are in Mt Barker. A long way from me so I was a bit worried. But they really delivered. So easy, so helpful, and do much cheaper for the same gear. The installation is First Class. The follow up calls, attention to detail was amazing. They even came over a few times after installing to run me through getting the most out of the system.
I love the Fronius inverter and the app. Super cool.
Highly recommend this mob. I'll be getting my battery from them next.

We had a total of 5 proposals - 2 via our builder and 3 via Solar Quotes (SQ). The research and procurement period lasted 5 or 6 weeks. I did a lot of reading on SQ's website (which led to a lot of questions to the various suppliers) and in the end I felt that, for an absolute novice, we made an informed decision. FYI - the 2 quotes we received from the builder's contacts had a very significant price variance, whereas the 3 quotes we received via SQ's contacts, the prices were within 5 or 6% of each other. We accepted the middle price from the SQ source, based on the long-term value for money proposition.

We would like to thank SQ for your assistance with the procurement of our solar system

When first enquiring about solar systems and cost some companies were very persistent with regular phone calls excelling the quality and price of their systems ( became very annoying as some seemed not to understand when told not to call again.They only got the message not to ring again when told where they could stick their system)Their prices were always half price or less or one off offers. Friend had many problems after accepting one of these great deals.
We now recommend to any friends enquiring about solar systems to go to Solar Quotes for information.Not to be conned by some companies with their prices.

Dealing with James and his crew was absolutely awesome. There is no beating around the bush, I sat down , explained what I was looking to achieve out of a solar system. They strait away showed me options that they felt would suit best for me, (in this case a fronius symo 10.0-3-m...10kw system). Install was fast with high standard and am already seeing the results overall I cannot be happier with the result. I would recommend these guys to anyone who wants a quality product and install.
