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:
Fantastic organisation to deal with. After discussing some faults with a previously installed 1.5kw system through another company I was given great advice on options for solar on my property to replace the faulty one. Everything I needed to know was covered and more, which eventually ended up with me bagging a great deal on not only a great replacement inverter, but also options to upgrade to a more suitable 5kw system that would generate great savings based on the size of my property and likely energy use. Fast and efficient follow-up on quotes, information on options, easy bookings for installations and the installation process was a breeze. The team heading up installation were on time, quick with their duties, explained why and how everything was being installed and made sure all the packaging and spare screws, etc. were cleaned up quickly after completing the process.

I had 3 companies contact me. In the end I decided on Solar Wholesalers (SW) because the design they submitted suited what I wanted and they have good reviews on this site so felt confident in using them.

Sam from SW called me to discuss my quote. I gave him some details he needed then he emailed me a Solar production estimation based on the location and house orientation and a couple of possible design plans. I asked for SW to inspect the house roof to make sure there would not be any surprises on install day and that was arranged for the following day. Next day he did the inspection and saw no problems so I decided to go with them.

He answered all my questions. Deposit was paid and Colleen from SW arranged for a new Meter install and a date and time for the solar install. These were both booked in for the same day.

Tim and Dan from SW showed up on the booked install date and started the installation. It was all completed by mid afternoon. They answered all the questions I put to them.

Only had a couple of minor after install issues to be rectified and James from SW arranged for those to be looked at. Dates and times were kept and no having to chase them up. James was also very helpful with my email questions I had in regards to the SunnyBoy Inverter. He called me back to discuss it.

I have held off on this review as I wanted to evaluate the performance of the system and the after sales service. So far I have had no problems with the friendly after sales service. I've been keeping some hand written logs for the past 40 days. I compared the May Solar production against the estimations Sam had sent me. The average for May was stated as 14 kWh per Day. My actual readings works out to be 14.3 kWh so I'm quite happy with that.

I would certainly use SW again in the future.

People were on time, arranged everything, were informative and polite, and left the place tidy (as in: they didn't leave any packaging and bits of wire behind or anything). Questions via email were promptly answered. Show additional information

We were very pleased with information we received, and they met with us at site and after discussion and explanations, we decided this was who we wanted to deal with.
Installers were very good at their jobs, and communicated well.
Now, hopefully the system will work as anticipated.
Thank you for your help in making our search so much easier

All aspects of installing additional solar panels was handled well by Solar Wholesalers. They talked us through the process and answered all questions we had, explaining the reasons for the decisions. The plan they drew up was innovative and the installation was handled very well. We'd have no hesitation in using Solar Wholesalers again. Show additional information
I have ,on the recommendation of the salesperson, installed 6.48kW of panels in conjunction with a 5kW invertor, based on the advice that I will get more consistent power generation even as the weather changes. Show additional information
We installed 6.48kW of panels married to a 5 kW inverter. This idea of having more panel power than inverter size was new to us, and I trust will return a steady power supply (weather dependant) for many years. Show additional information
We found Solar wholesalers a great company to work with, right from getting a quote through to the installation and follow up service.
The staff were all very helpful and professional.

After going on Solar quotes and getting an idea of who was getting good customer reviews plus best components. I then got a few quotes and Solar Wholesaler came in as one of the most competitive compared to others when you cross referenced it with good reviews. Subsequently, Solar Wholesaler installed the system to an excellent standard with conscientious and friendly installers. I would certainly recommend them to others. Show additional information

The installation hasn't occurred yet hence why I couldn't rate it., but otherwise he was an excellent source of information about what would suit us now and in the future. Show additional information
Solar Wholesalers communicated every step of the way & gave a detailed submission of how the panels would be fitted on the roof.
They blend in really well with the colour of our roof & were installed exactly the way we were shown in their quote. This company has its own employees who do the total installation so its well coordinated if there is any problem outside of a normal job. We only had an RCD as a main switch so they also fitted a main switch at no extra charge. When we get the NBN through this area we will set up the
monitoring of the system with them which is an additional service they give without charge.
Thanks for your help in recommending this company we would have no hesitation in doing so to other people.
Regards Brian & Belinda.

Solar Wholesalers were prompt with quote, effective answers and explanations. Process was handled and we were kept up to date with timeline. company installer and electrician were hard working and polite and quietly got the job done. Pain free! Show additional information
I dealt mainly with Sam at first. He was very helpful and answered all of my many questions in an honest and professional manner. Colleen arranged the follow up with SA Power Networks and she was excellent. She is a real asset to that company and she really knows her stuff.
To be honest, it was difficult for me to choose between Solar Wholesalers and Goliath Electrical. Both were very helpful without any high pressure sales talk.
Difficult to comment much further as I am still waiting for the installation.

I actually found the web site and its information really useful. We were provided with 3 quotes and still didn't know what we were looking for, so I went to the site and looked and read all about quality and the questions I should be asking about efficiency etc. That was when it all started to click a bit more. I could ask more detailed questions of the sales reps and then I could really tell who knew what they were talking about and was able to analyse the quality of the systems better.
Thanks for making it so simple Finn, great job.

This will be a difficult install due to the height of the townhouse and the location of the connection point to the mains box. Solar Wholesalers came out and thoroughly reviewed the install and offered to best solution for concealment of the install. Show additional information
All aspects of the process were excellent. Paul was knowledgable and made sure that what he was providing was going to suit our needs. He answered all questions in detail. The installation was team were on time and completed the job quicker than we were expecting. The company were easy to deal with and we would use them again. Show additional information
Every retailer sells the best product, according to them, so this makes it a very diffuclt task to buy a solar system.High pressure selling is not my way so when one of your recommended retailers told me their quote would only stand for seven days I was annoyed. This company later called me and said that they were willing to negotiate but, as mentioned earlier, not interested in this sort of selling. Have I bought the best value for money solar system? I don't know, but I will tell you that I was not pressured into this one so I am happy Show additional information

I really appreciated getting three companies recommended and then being left alone to get quotes and do our own research. All three companies recommended were great to del with; professional and happy for questions etc. The company we chose offered us the best price first up (another company was prepared to match it) but we also really liked their approach to us and once we signed a contract they took care of absolutely everything and delivered everything they promised on time. Could not be happier! Show additional information

I wanted a good system that would suit my needs that is provide power from sun up to sunset as i am retired and spend a lot of time at home Paul at Solar Wholesalers listened to my needs and designed a system that would suit our household.
Pauls company also employs all of its staff that means no contractors,if there is a problem then there is only one person to talk to and getting it fixed is easier.

The quote from Solar Wholesalers was not the lowest price I received, but was innovative in terms of supplying extra panels over two different roof orientations to maximise daily electricity production. After acceptance, the team at Solar Wholesalers handled everything, including all liaison with SA Power Networks and with Origin Energy. Nothing was too much trouble and, even though it was a busy period around Christmas, the system was installed and fully operational in just over six weeks - most of the time taken being scheduling of SA Power Networks tasks. The small installation team of 2 arrived early on the appointed day, got the big job done in a little over half a day and were very helpful in explaining all aspects of the installation process as they progressed. Their workmanship was very neat, with minimal impact in terms of visible cabling, other than the panels on the roof. The supplied SMA Inverter can be monitored remotely via the Sunny Portal website, allowing for on-going monitoring and analysis of electricity generation and usage patterns. Great result - well done.

Goliath Electrical do not always knowingly or unknowing act in the best interests of the customer e.g. load a 4 kW inverter with 5 kW of panels as per the manufacturers instructions which works in the customers favour i.e. provide the highestr rebate, rather they offer a 5 kW inverter with 5 kWatts of panels. Energy Matters simpy acted in their own best interest and tried to justify their higher cost by suggesting they were the "best" company...unimpressive sales techniques. Show additional information
These guys were amazing. We had a painless process from start to finish. The customer service was above and beyond. They were always kind and courteous no matter how many questions we had. It was installed in just a few hours and they were gone as if they'd never been. For the first time I can say I'm looking forward to the electricity bill. Show additional information
We got three quotes, although one came quite a bit later than the two who responded very quickly. We looked at both DC and micro-inverter technologies. The salespeople from all three companies appeared knowledgable, were good to deal with and provided good information.

We went with a 5 kW system with micro-inverters installed by Solar Wholesalers. As most seem to quote for Enphase micro-inverters, we selected Solar Wholesalers on the basis of quality of the panels, local installer (not a contractor) and price for the system. Braemac was a close second.

Installation went smoothly and the system is now working reliably. Solar Wholesalers were great throughout the process, with regular communication before installation and followup after. We had a small issue initially, related to our house being on two-phase power (a bit unusual), which was attended to promptly. The only 'room for improvement' was that Solar Wholesalers did not provide the information for how to track the system performance on the internet without prompting - perhaps an oversight? - I had to ask for this. This too, was promptly attended to.

All up, a good experience - made all the easier by the great information available via the SolarQuotes site as well.

Hi Guys,
Just to let you know I got my first bill after having the solar put up. System size 12.72KW. This billing was from Oct to Dec. Normally the bill would have been around $630-$730 for this quarter. Well was I happy when I saw the bill, I owed the retailer $1.98c Yes no miss print One dollar and 98cents, for a house with 4 and a pool ( pump ran 6 hours a day) and a house with no one home between 8.30am to 3.30pm. Can't wait to see the next bill (they the retailer will owe me money)
So for the people out there who think solar is not worth it THINK AGAIN. The more Solar you put on the roof the better it will be for you when you see the bill arrive. So if
you have the space on the roof use it to its best potential.

The team from Solar wholesalers were helpful and provided plenty of information when asked. They listened to my concerns and suggestions and I ended up with a great solution that was not put forward by other well-regarded installers. I believe it is a solution more tailored to my current usage and will allow further refinement in the future as my usage patterns change.
Installation occurred on time and was completed without issue. Highly recommended.

I found dealing with Solar Wholesalers was professional and pleasant experience and I liked the fact that they were not pushy.The installers were friendly and helpful and did a top job.The quote was not the cheapest,but the quality of the panels,inverter and installation was worth the extra.
