Solaworx Solar Reviews

Really good experience with this purchase. Mark was upfront with costs and the fitters Andrea and son were highly skilled and friendly. It was a difficult choice as all the quotes received from Solarquotes were great. Show additional information
Enphase individual micro inverters are very efficient and the enphase monitoring app is great. Mark did well to recommend this type of system as we had an existing (single inverter) 3kw system which we did not need to disturb. And now have two 3kw stand alone systems working side by side. A very good set up. Show additional information
Solarworx was one of three quotes. Of the other two, one was just a flat price of $5k with no other information and the other failed to quote within the first week (although it was mid-January and he did apologise for the delay).

Like many consumers, I'd done some homework but was surprised at the amount of information that I was unaware of.

Solarworx's quote had three pricing and supply options with each differnece full explained.vIn the end, we went for the mid-range one. There was an initial hiccup with installation due to roofing issues and the delay of several weeks was of minor inconvenience only. Mark Moody maintains contact and returns calls promptly, he was very laid back. It was a much better feel that the high pressure sales tactics I had experienced in our last couple of forays into solar which resulted in us postponing the decision.

It's all now installed, operates at a premium level and the retailer has switched over the meters.

All that's left now is to see what impact it has on pour power bills. I did notice on the weekend that SA Power Netwroks is lobbying the Essentuial Services Commission to change electricity tariffs so that they can charge peak rates in the evening, early morning and at night "to encourage more use during the day".

It sounds like a scam to redcue the amount we save by using solar power during the day and hitting us when the sun goes down. If that happens, make your feelings known to your local MP because if, as reported, one third of homes have solar, then we have a powerful voice.

Overall very happy with this whole process of getting Solar installed on my house. I got 3 quotes and Solaworx were not the cheapest, but after researching the systems, Solaworx offered the highest quality system at a fantastic price. Their quote was cheaper than another quote that was using cheaper solar panels. Mark came out to my home to discuss what could be done, 1 of the quoters didn't bother which put them offside with me. Installers for Solaworx very polite, professional, and easy to deal with. Brandon and Andre did a great job and installed the system in less than 1 day. A factory defect on one of the microinverters which they picked up during install saw them come back next working day to replace it. Whole system works brilliantly and I can view the production and consumption online. Will recommend Solaworx to family and friends for sure. Show additional information
Very professional fast and friendly. Live in block of Townhouses and now everybody getting them installed because I highly recommended them ...Excellent quality system with extra warranty and confidence in tradesmen and problem solving if required... Show additional information
I haven't yet had approval from SA Power Networks for the install, so put not applicable for the install rating. Show additional information
Started this mission with huge power bills. Had no idea what i was looking for and during the journey met some really aggressive salesman. I was recommended by a friend who said that he is very impressed with a man called Mark from solaworx with their knowledge, prices and work. Needless to say they lived up to their reputation. I had an 'impossible' roof. The installers came out and eight hours later was the owner of a state of the art solar system. Mark was patient, not pushy and laid the facts down for me to make an informed choice. I would recommend him to anyone. Show additional information
We received all the necessary information before we decide to buy. Mark was patient and helped us navigate through the various options to find something suitable for our needs. Show additional information

Mark was very prompt to contact us, the day after Solarquotes sent me the referrals. The solar system was installed within a week from when we first requested the quotes.
The installers did a excellent job with the installation and were polite and friendly. We have the micro inverters & the Enlighten monitoring system, so it is very easy to see what the system is producing. We did have an issue with one of the inverters & after contacting Mark the problem was rectified promptly.

Mark Moody Solaworx made the process of installing a cost effective solar system seamless. I thank him and his excellent installation team and will recommend him to anyone thinking of installing a solar electricity system. Thanks Show additional information
Mark was the first to respond after receiving 3 contractors from SolarQuotes. My partner and I both had confidence in his knowledge of Solar Panels and the Solar Energy market in general. Once we decided to get Solar Panels the installation was organised in a flash. The installers were terrific - not only top technicians they were friendly, courteous and took their time to answer any solar related questions. The installation process went without a hitch - it has been 4 days since and the system is running better than expected. Show additional information

We chose Solaworx as Mark Moody has excellent knowledge of all aspects of what is best suited our home. Could answer all our questions, we had done quite a bit
of research ourselves and what Mark had to say qualified what we had found out plus so much more. He is a very interesting, intelligent man. There was no sales push, just
the facts. It wasn't the cheapest, but an excellent system for years to come.
The installers were very good and helpful. The follow-up was also excellent. Would recommend Mark Mood and his team very highly. The whole experience was easy from beginning to end.
Thank you Mark.

Mark and his team were very professional throughout the sale and installation. Mark's knowledge of the industry was excellent and he helped us work through some of the issues we had regarding shading of the roof, the best system for our needs and the best place for the panels. We have micro-inverters and the Enlighten system is excellent. The installation team were fantastic, very efficient and knowledgeable. They placed the panels well on the roof in keeping with the design of the house. Being new to solar we have had some subsequent questions and Mark always responds very quickly. It was a pleasure to deal with Mark and his team. Show additional information

Very positive experience throughout the purchase and installation Show additional information
We have accepted the quote from SolarWorx, and there was a delay in having a roof inspection done, but this was because of poor weather conditions. After a few discussions we'll need to mount panels on tilt frames. perhaps not the prettiest scenario but our roof only has a 5 degree pitch so this will help keep the panels clean and hopefully producing optimal power. We now need to apply to council for the tilt frame installation.
So, so far happy with information and quote provided. I liked that Mark gave 3 quotes. A basic system, then better components, then because we have some shading at different times of day we have gone with the quote for micro inverters. This should provide maximum power production and fewer points of failure. Plus we can add a battery down the track if they become cheap enough.

The installation on the day was speedy and efficient and professional.

Some minor delays were experienced due to unforeseen circumstances.

Purchases should ensure they understand that they are required to send forms to their electrical supplier.

Mark from solarworx was fantastic. Was the only company to come to my house to discuss the quotes he supplied through email. System was installed within 2 weeks although i have to wait about 6 weeks for SAPN to change the meter over. Show additional information
Once the decision was made the solar system was installed within two weeks. Mark was easy to talk to and the installers consistently work with him. The whole process was much easier than I was expecting. Thank you. Show additional information
Mark was very knowledgable and articulate; he made the technical information easy to understand. He provided us with an extra option which we had not previousl considered.
Mark's expertise and availability to respond to questions regarding product and installation were excellent.
The speed at which our system was installed and running was exceptional.
The installers were very professional and communication with them, regarding best placement for panels was pleasant and productive.
Our micro inverter system is performing above our expectations and we appreciate the instant feed back on the performance of our system via the App.
Thank you Mark and your dedicated team.
We happily recommend your business to anyone considering considering installation of a solar system.
Our system is "battery ready" which will enable us to go off the grid at a future date.

When I requested 3 quotes from the Adelaide area, I received 2 responses. Mark Moody from Solarworx was the quickest to respond and provided a reasonable quote for an excellent system. 6.5kW of REC panels - 20 off 325Watts each, with Enphase micro-inverters.
The other company that quoted wouldn't install the panels until after SAPN installed the new meter, which was estimated to be in January 2018. They also quoted on a single DC inverter. Solarworx quoted a superior system for very little increased cost, and installed quicker.
The date of installation was set for end of November, but circumstances (sickness of installers) delayed the installation until mid-December.

The system has been installed for over a week now and the new meter was installed 3 days ago so 18 cents/kW Hr is clocking up as credit for me while the sun shines.
I am extremely happy with the system, the installation and the end result - we have been receiving over 40kW/hr of solar generation each day with around 3kW/hr per day drawn off the grid. At that rate we should pay it off in 3 years.

Andre and Brandon (installation team for SolarWorx) were outstanding. They were experts, respectful, provided great information to me and made the installation totally seamless.

Mark Moody from SolarWorx was also very knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. The only slight criticism I could have (and minor at that) is that he wasn't great in keeping me up-to-date with the final install date. He took care of all the paperwork, and organised SAPN to install the new meter promptly - a great job all round.

If I was to have a system installed again I would go with the SolarWorx team without hesitation.

Was not aware that when the grid goes off I lose my solar. This fact was not hi lighted anywhere and very disappointed from that angle. Otherwise waiting for our first meter reading! Show additional information
Mark from Solarworx was extremely helpful, answered all questions, delivered and installed ahead of time without any hassles. Highly recommend Mark & his team. Show additional information
We selected Solaworx as they provided the best system for a partly shaded second array in a two array configuration. We chose REC Solar 325 w 72 Cell panels fitted with Enphase S270 microinverters. Thanks to the good advice on your web site regarding microinverters vs. DC optmisers and purchasing inexpensive Enphase software enabling the customer to monitor electricity production from each cell.

Solaworkx provided outstanding sales service answering any questions I had promptly. Did not try any upsales tactics like the others, installed a quality system that has exceeded my expectstions. Show additional information
Mark Moody of Solaworx answered all my questions and those I hadn't even thought of. He replies to txt and calls promptly and goes that extra mile to ensure you have the infomation you need to make a decision about your site specific installation. Although initial contact was through email quoting once I made contact with him he arranged a site visit and took time to make sure I had all the necessary infomation to make a decision.
Installers Andre and Brandon also made a site visit to discuss orientation and installation options and offer advice.
REC 325 72 cell large panels were craned onto the roof effortlessly and ready to go in half an hour on the day of installation.

3.84 kW solaredge system, instillation is top notch, service from Mark Moody and the crew at Solarworx was excellent. Show additional information
Personally, I think a lot of jargon is still used within the industry. You need some form of basic knowledge of how electrical currents work AC vs DC etc. I've got no idea. I still have no idea and I won't pretend that I do. My approach was to ask the installer for a system that they would provide their own home based on my requirements and needs.

After describing my requirements the companies that contacted me seem to go into their own spiel of pitches with the presumption I knew what they were talking about. Until now I'm not 100% sure but I have chosen Solaworx for a variety of reasons but I'm excited to have it installed (hopefully next week) and it may just be a case of learning on the go.

I only had it installed 2 days ago. Mark was great and the installers were confident and knew their job well. I have to wait and see when my next bill arrives to calculate the real benefits for the upgraded dual system and installing a second system affected my FIT or RECs Show additional information
A daunting thought getting an off the grid system but it's been running faultlessly, which is very important in our situation. Mark was very helpful in explaining everything and navigating us through the choices, and had the most competitive quote for comparable systems. Very happy overall, thank you!
