About Solar Wholesalers, Solar Installers

Based in South Australia, Solar Wholesalers provides solar power systems to Adelaide as well as regional parts of the state. It was one of the first solar power companies to be established in the area.

Solar Wholesalers has been operational since 2007 and prides itself on offering reliable products to its customers.

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.

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:
Significant delays by our electricity provider - Alinta - have resulted in significant delay to our Solar installation - not an issue with Solar Wholesalers at all. We are going ahead with the total system install tomorrow even though our meter has not been switched over for feed-in tariff. Solar Wholesalers have been supportive and pro-active throughout this process. Collateral reporting indicates many other buyers and installers have experienced the same or similar delays with SA power retailers including Alinta and AGL. We had SEG approval certification from SA Power by 26 January 2018, then put in the service request with Alinta with all documentation. Alinta raised a service order by 9 Feb (apologizing for tardiness!); however, Alinta then cancelled this service order on 11 Feb 2018 unilaterally and did not inform us or the installer they had done so.....until I chased them down one week ago to find out why they had made no further contact since beginning of Feb 2018 .... We have still had nil response from Alinta re a new service order and an indication of when the meter conversion will likely happen............ Show additional information
Customer experience was great - they were prepared to take the time to explain and discuss all issues, they answered all my questions regardless of how ridiculous they sounded to them. Their workmanship was brilliant - I think they stopped for about 10 mins to have lunch but otherwise they kept going to ensure that they completed the job correctly. They did not commence the job until they had the date-time that ETSA provided for the meter box upgrade.
Great to have such professional, polite and thorough workers at my home.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with the team at Solar Wholesalers. No question I asked was considered stupid and the best part of their service was that they delivered what they promised, AND ON TIME - a rarity, in my recent experience, when dealing with tradespeople.

Solar Wholesalers were the only company that followed though my inquiry from start to finish. One rang me today, months after my initial inquiry!

All of the team that I dealt with throughout the use of their service were great to deal with; from quoting to installation and following up after install. The team were prompt in quoting, outlaying the options to me, explaining the process and what would work best for me, and in organising the install to be done as soon as possible. Very happy with the service, the quality components used, the price and the professional manner that the company operates with. Thank you! Show additional information

When it was diagnosed that the mini inverters in the solar panels were blocking the TV signal to all ABC programmes, James was diligent in arranging for this problem to be solved. Their team of installers were prompt, incredibly hard working, in spite of early rain, most professional. Show additional information
I chose Solar Wholesalers as they are located locally, are up to speed with current technology and cover all aspects of installation themselves rather than sub contracting. Show additional information
We chose Solar Wholesalers based on reviews generated by customers. The team was extremely helpful and well versed in their field. The installation crew did not disappoint. Solar Wholesalers assisted without the hard sell. Instead they were guiding and informative never straying from our requirements. Well done to this crew. Show additional information
I didnt even bother shopping around after I spoke with this company initially, best decision I have ever made was just going with the supplied quote.
Probably wasnt the cheapest but all too often 'you get what you pay for' - been bitten by cheapest price once too often, absolutely no regrets whatsoever, would go straight to them again if ever needed.

While there are plenty of companies to choose from i had heard fantastic feedback about Solar Wholesalers. While their quote was not the cheapest it was the best value and meet my needs of rapid payback and piece of mind regarding a problem free system into the future.
The installation process went smoothly and as promised.
I would have no hesitation is strongly recommending Solar Wholesalers. Don't get sucked in to a cheaper system, deal with real people who are there to ensure you get the right outcome for your individual needs.

The first question above doesn't allow of our choice which was for the number 9 (Solar Wholesalers) of the top 10 on your home page. That is, we learned about them from your site but not via the quotes offering. For some reason, your three quotes process didn't offer Solar Wholesalers as the third quote (we only received two) which is surprising as they are not far away from us (Bridgewater) in Mt Barker. I wrote to your support email address querying this outcome but have not had response.

Yes sorry unfortunately our system at the time of your submitted enquiry was unable to send your details to Solar Wholesalers on our network for a 3rd quote. This may have been due to them not being active for enquiries, or their daily, weekly, monthly enquiry quotas may have been fulfilled.
I hope that helps.

Solar Wholesalers were very quick to answer any concerns I had, and being a technician myself, they were happy to provide me with the more in depth information I sought. Though I have not yet had the system installed (next week) I cannot fault their customer service.
I like that they do not subcontract to another installer, it gives me piece of mind that if anything does go wrong, I have the one point of contact to worry about.

We were very impressed with Solar Wholesalers' professional approach throughout the quotation and installation process. Options and choices were explained clearly, and their final price was very competitive. The installation team (who were company employees rather than sub-contractors) were polite and efficient, and the installation was well done. I would not hesitate to recommend the Company.

We are a heavy-use household, averaging about 50kWh/$17 per day across the 12 months before solar installation. Our first quarterly post-solar bill confirmed that the predictions of system performance made by Solar Wholesalers during the quotation process were accurate. We are very pleased with the outcome: our solar system will have paid for itself well inside two years.

I wanted people to come and have a look at my house as it is a 2 storey residence. I found it difficult to get someone to come out to have a look at the place when I was able to be there.
Solar Wholesalers ended up getting the job as even though they were more expensive than the other, they actually came out and talked to me and I also knew of a number of other people who had used them and were happy with their service.
Looking at a January installation as rules have changed on meter installations and waiting for AGL to do their thing.

Solar Wholesalers have been really helpful and professional. Right from quotation to helping with meter change application, advise on type and size of panels and inverter to choose based on our individual circumstances and professional installation, it has been a great and positive experience. Thanks for proactively moving the tv antenna anticipating interference from panels. Show additional information

Our house has significant shading so we opted for 24 Trina Maxim optimised panels and a 5 kW Fronius inverter. The system has been running for a week now and it is performing way beyond our expectations. We had done our calculations and thought that we might reduce our bill by a third. In fact, we have fed in more than twice what we have taken from the grid and would only have been paying the supply charge. We have tilt racks on a near-flat metal roof consisting of two different KlipLok profiles and the team from Solar Wholesalers did a fantastic job ensuring that the racks were fixed without penetrating the roof. They were extremely patient while they waited for us to get development approval from our local council. Communication with the sales, admin and installation staff was excellent. We would certainly recommend them. Thanks also to Finn and the SolarQuotes folks. We were very happy with the three companies that quoted and you saved us many hours of research.

All good really.

We had to do some of the final negotiations from afar. My wife and I spent some time in the US during the negotiations about the Solar System, indeed had to leave it to our son to have everything in place for the installation process. All went well. The bottom line is we are happy enough with the job.

On another note we are obviously not too happy we needed to put in the system in the first place. We own a couple of places in the US. The current cost of electricity in the State of Maryland is 5.9c Kwh. We put in the solar system to avoid the $2,000+ per quarter we get charged during the winter months in South Australia (and that's at 30c Kwh rate not at the new rate of 36.5c Kwh we have just been notified as now applying).

As soon as the wife and I are retired we are certainly out of here!

The quote was not the cheapest - only marginally higher than the second highest; however the quality of the quote presentation coupled with a site visit and further explanations made it very easy to select this superior configuration.
Further the installers were first rate in all matters.
The journey from initial quotation/explanations to selection and installation/commissioning/web access was likewise first rate.
In addition, the final paperwork 'package' was very professional.

Sam - Solar wholesalers did everything via the phone. the other 2 companies came out to meet me and explain the systems. Luckily enough the information I got through the other 2 companies helped me gain knowledge about solar and branding etc. I went with Solar wholesalers as they were cheaper by at least $1000 but I felt he didn't have to spend much time with me and that's probably why he was a bit cheaper. everything was via email and when I phoned him regarding the price/installation process I felt he wasn't as informative and a little short with me on the phone however $1000 is a $1000 so I went with him. His installers were great and explained everything, as for Sam - the jurys out on him . Show additional information
I would like to commend the staff at Solar Wholesalers Mount Barker SA in all aspects of my recent Solar installation at my new home. From the first point of contact through to the guys who did the installation my experience has been top class. It was pleasing to come home after the guys had finished the installation and find a clean site with no rubbish etc left behind and of course a solar system that continues to deliver more power than originally expected, saving me money.
