Satisfied customer

SolarWise provided a pleasing experience. They provided answers to our queries and advice regarding a suitable system followed by a prompt quote followed by an installation process that was most professional. They were personable, knowledgeable, punctual, tidy and a pleasure to be associated with. We are currently awaiting our energy provider to install the necessary meter to complete the system.

Professional In All Aspects

I purchased a 12.24kW 3 phase system from SolarWise Wagga. After doing a lot of research, I enquired about a system and Alex came out and had a look. He knew his product and answered all my questions. He sent me some quotes and helped me understand all my options. After discussing several options, I settled on a 12.24kW system. Because of the size of the system, Essential Energy put a 6kW limit on my feed in. This was unexpected. After learning this, we adjusted the system layout. I have 7.2kW North and 5.04kW West of LG 360W Panels feeding a 10kW Fronius inverter.

I had received cheaper quotes, but I went with Alex and his crew as I had heard good things about their work and I wanted a professional neat job. Alex's crew turned up a few weeks later on the day we organised for install. His crew were very well presented. I explained I wanted a nice neat job (I'm a bit OCD with my house) and that's exactly what I got, even up in the roof all the wiring is neatly installed.

Once installed, Alex organised the new meter and Essential Energy came and installed it 2 weeks later. (It can take up to 28 days depending on your supplier) Once the meter was installed, Alex came out the next day and reprogrammed it.

The system performs well. I exported 46kWh on a clear day mid September, even with the 6kW per hour export limit. The system peaks at around 9.53kW around midday, again mid September.

The whole experience was great. I really didn't have to do anything. They took care of it all. They kept me well informed and delivered the job is was hoping for. I would highly recommend SolarWise Wagga to anyone wanting a professional and hassle free experience.

Great service

Extremely helpful in all aspects. Sales person described everything in detail. Installer kept up to date and showed me what had been done. Owner called in and checked still waiting on AGL to connect to grid Show additional information

Minimum fuss and an effective solution.

On first consultation the consultant, Bob, was helpful and well versed in the products on offer. He explained the relative merits of the various options well and forwarded the details of 3 possible installations promptly.

The installation went smoothly - the installers arrived punctually on the agreed day and completed the work in an efficient and timely manner with minimal disruption.

Customer service has been a strong point - the grid connection is still a work in progress, well facilitated by the crew at Solar Wise.

Installed but not connected to the grid at this stage. Will be a in a couple of weeks. Installation of the panels and distribution board took less than a day, but waiting on the electricity company to hook it up with a smart meter. Show additional information

We purchased from Alexander Manley from SolarWise Wagga Wagga, after much research (thank you Finn Peacock 'solarquotes') and many quotes, because he was one of the few that would travel the 50 kms to speak face to face and discuss the best options for our house after seeing our roof layout.
Alex was amazing, no question was left unanswered, supplied many pamphlets of different products, discussed our options and not once was he pushy.
A friend of mine had also had his and his parents house fitted by SolarWise many years ago, so not only was he local but has been in this business for many years.
The system was fitted in good time and with no problems and despite winter weather is producing well. We are very happy.

This system has a 6 kW Inverter to allow for addition of existing Gross system panels after 31/12/2016 and future expansion. The Inverter also is battery ready and allows for backup on grid failure when batteries are added later this year, so it is more expensive than a simple 4 kW inverter.
My roof was replaced the week before installation, so the installation of the system included RE-installation of the existing nine-year-old Gross system PV panels on the new roof.

Installed 5kW Fronius 5.0-1 Primo Inverter

New Essential Energy digital Meter
I went with the Wagga firm because they are close to where we live and I was happy with the visit to our home before installation.
