8 months later we asked Steven: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

It certainly has. But obviously remains totally dependent on the continuation of reasonable Feed In Tariffs.

Simple process, great value

I cannot fault the install team or the sales office for the professional manner that they handled my purchase.

From the initial quote, the modifications, the purchase, the connection to the grid including arranging the modifications to the power meter and then install, everything was straightforward and understandable.

No question was ignored or given a less than complete answer.

I would easily recommend this company to my family and friends.

Correct system for our home

All correspondence was by email.
Answered any questions I had, not understanding the system
Recommended a different brand and type of panel than 3 other quotes I sourced as we have trees around our house that block the sun on the roof.
Happy with the installers

Perfect in every way

Everything ran smoothly and we were advised of the process and time it would take from the first day I rang to find out details. While we were able to get it done quicker due to a cancellation, everything was effortless in getting this quoted and installed. Very happy with the whole process

Fantastic Customer Service

The whole process from start to finish was absolutely outstanding. I don't normally write reviews (I think this is the first), but I feel very strongly that SolarWholesalers are to be congratulated on provided a fantastic customer experience. Very very happy with everything you have done for us.

Goin' Off Grid, well hopefully!

The team at Solar Wholesalers at Mt Barker in SA were great, right from the start, very informative to all my questions, even the dumb ones! I rang a few companies, all the information can be quite mind boggling, but Solar Wholesalers know their stuff and assured me what we was doing was going to be suitable for our needs. Ran us through the whole process, installed easily on the day, cleaned up afterwards and gave us a run through on how it works. So now just waiting patiently for my first bill to see what happens to the $$$.

Great local company to deal with

We've had a great experience overall with Solar Wholesalers.

While the initial quote / sales process was OK (not great), the service we've received since signing on has been faultless. We were actively updated throughout the process and told what to expect, and everything occurred when we were told it would.

The team of guys sent out to our installation were fantastic. All extremely polite, professional and courteous, and super efficient (given the complexity of our install).

So far the system is working as intended, but it's early days so we'll monitor and see how it goes in the coming months. But overall we highly recommend the Solar Wholesalers team. We were keen to support a local business and very glad we did.

Highly Recommended

From the initial phone call through to the final installation of our solar system we have very impressed by Solar Wholesalers employees professionalism to ensure we were fully informed and entirely happy with the installation. A local company, employing local employees, using their own trades and canadian solar panels at a competitive price were major factors in our decision to use Solar Wholesalers.

Smooth Operators

We chose Solar Wholesalers because of their professionalism, promptness and informative sales process. This gave us the confidence we needed to choose an appropriate solution to meet our needs and confidence in Solar Wholesaler's ability to install that solution. They provided excellent guidance and coordination of the process leading up to the installation that was completed in a single day and without any incidents (despite a very rainy start to the day). Thanks very much to the team at Solar Wholesalers

Excellent experience from Solar Wholesalers

Right from the time Solar Wholesalers quoted us to install our solar system the whole process flowed very easily. They were very efficient and informative as to options to choose from and supplied very detailed written quotes. They organised everything with the power company and arranged the date of installation to suit us.
We were very impressed with the careful way the work was done, the politeness of the crew and the tidy way they worked. It was a pleasure to do business with them and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to install solar.

Exactly what you need then to be. Great service.

After plowing through the mine field of solar information and reviews and getting 4 different quotes, I chose Solar Wholesale because my instinct told me they would be the best option. I wasn't wrong, the entire experience was great. The system wasn't the cheapest quote I got, but I wanted to pay a bit extra for good quality components and better service. I definitely got that.

The quote process was easy and once we looked to proceed, a technician came out to assess the job fully and ensure there were no unforseen issues that would add extra cost.

The crew on the day were great and worked really hard to get a large system completed quickly and efficiently. They also left nothing behind and left everything tidy. They all seemed like decent blokes, polite, helpful and respectful.

Once it was fitted they took the time to make sure I could access the fronius app, so I could view my electricity use and generation. They also explained the invertor system well and how to power it all down if needed.

I called the office mid morning after the smart meter was installed to have them come and change the programming to export into the grid. An electrician stopped by on his way home from work the same day to do it.

There was a minor admin hiccup that was resolved with one phone call.

All of the dealings with the admin staff were great. The installers are backed up by really good people back at the office. They organised the meter changeover process entirely.

The system is large, but it currently powers all of our daytime energy consumption and still exports about 25kw to the grid per day.

I would recommend Solar Wholesale to anyone looking for great service, quality components, quality installation, good advice and reliable warranties. 10/10.

A job well done

From the initial phone call on making enquiries we found Solar Wholesalers most helpful.
After a detailed discussion a fully explained quote was received and on payment of a deposit we were guided through how the system would operate with all our questions answered in detail.
The installation was carried out in an efficient manner and was made to fit with our scheduled activities.The young men who did the installation were polite and left the site clean and tidy.
Help was also provided with the grid connection as well as how to monitor usage. All in all a most satisfactory outcome to be recommended to anybody considering solar installation.

First Class

Right from the initial contact by Sam, the two quotes were received within a day. No pushy sales tactics. Installation was within a couple of weeks of signing up due to the rescheduling by another customer. Installation went like clockwork, were on the job when they said and at the end, workings of the system was explained. This was a replacement of a 1kWh system of 12 years old, so main infrastructure was already there and utilized. Everyone involved was very nice and genuinely seemed happy in the job they performed. Everything was cleaned up afterwards and considerate of walking on the roof so not to break any tiles. Aftersales service is great, making sure everything went to plan and that we were happy with the whole process. We certainly are happy!! Would highly recommend Solar Wholesalers and they are local too.

A Straightforward and Pleasant Process

Dealing with Solar Wholesalers was a pleasure. They quickly booked in installation for us at the end of our house build. The installers were friendly and professional, and took the time to explain everything and confirm all the details of the installation. There were no real issues - everything was working when I came to inspect. It would have been nice if they could have provided an operating manual for the inverter, but I suppose I can find this online easily enough.

Great installer

Great service. Was kept informed throughout the process and any questions that came up were answered promptly.
Install team were fantastic, friendly and enthusiastic. Job done in a day. Weren't able to install exactly as planned but solutions were found quickly and efficiently to overcome the small unexpected issues that arose.
Electricity meter changed approx. two weeks after the install, phoned the office to let them know, and someone was round the next day to make the necessary adjustments to the inverter.
Would highly recommend.

Stress free installation and all aspects covered by Solar Wholesalers. Highly recommend this business

I did my research so knew what the quote entailed and was very happy with price quoted and choice of panels used and Inverter. I needed a new Smart metre but Colleen from Solar Wholesalers took care of everything including follow up on the day and sending out a service rep to explain the Fronius App to me. I feel secure that if anything does go wrong Solar Wholesalers will know about it before I do with their continuous monitoring, I love looking up the App and seeing how much power is going back to the grid, savings for me!!

The work men were polite, efficient and answered questions readily.
The time spent explaining the web monitoring was greatly appreciated.

Highly recommended!

We were recommended Solar Wholesalers from our friends that had their system isntalled by this company. We were happy they were local and also had good reviews online. When we asked for a quote they were really prompt and provided us with loads of information particularly for our circumstances as we have a low sloping roof. They ended up fitting us in earlier than we thought which was great and as soon as our smart meter was installed they came out that afternoon to switch the meter over so we could start exporting to the grid.

The people that came out to install the panels arrived on time, explained to us a few slight variations to the panel layout to that would improve system performance and were extremely helpful and hard working. The whole process was really smooth and they were all highly professional throughout, including the admin/customer service staff in the office.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Solar Wholesalers for anyone looking for a quality solar installation.

Quoting process was a breeze. We received our quote within a week.
The installation was done on time and far quicker than we thought. The guys doing the job were very friendly and helpful.
The follow up with information and guidance was also very fast and efficient. We had a couple of queries which were handled promptly. They contacted us as soon as we were on the grid to make sure that everything was working correctly.

Great service from a team who know what they are doing

To be honest the whole solar thing was a bit of a minefield for us with some friends saying how good it was and others (including sister-in-law) having a bad experience.

We found these guys to give a honest, no BS, great service with competitive prices.

Always great after-sales service as well in terms of being able to answer our questions about getting the best out of our set-up
