No nonsense installation

Added 4.8kW of additional panels to an existing 9.6kW PV system installed earlier by Mark and co along with a Tesla PW2 battery. The initial installation went smoothly and so to did the fitting of the additional panels. Mark is knowledgeable and answered all my questions honestly and in timely fashion. Andre and his installation team were punctual and highly professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Solarworx for any PV or battery installation.

An empowering experience

Solarworx informed us in plain language of its plan for our 6.6 system and the reasoning for this plan. They adapted the plan in response to our request for a different model of panel. They organised the installation in a timely way, despite difficult weather. The people who installed the system were very professional, organised, friendly and obviously knew exactly what they were doing. They removed our old system and replaced it exactly according to the plan. They tidied up really well. Patiently explained my queries and how the system worked. All the authorisations and paperwork came through via email, on the day, so I had the opportunity to ask questions about these matters if I wanted.

They've gone and now we have a system which we can monitored via the internet and keep an eye on how much energy the system is generating at any given moment and how much we are consuming.

We're really happy with the whole experience. So thanks Solarworx and all the various workers involved!

Great job Solarworx

Solarworx provided excellent advice, and designed and installed for us a high quality 6.6kW roof top solar system that we’ve been very happy with. It’s operated without a hitch for 12 months and has delivered significant savings on our electricity costs. Installers were professional, polite and helpful, and were committed to achieving a high standard installation that met our expectations. After sales service has been excellent and responsive. Currently exploring with Solarworx the addition of a battery, and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Friendly, informative, professional, comprehensive solar installation!

We couldn't be happier with our choice to go with Mark at Solaworx. Mark impressed us with his expertise, approachability, friendliness and patience. He called us soon after receiving our enquiry and came to visit our house within a couple of days. He lives the eco-concsious life that we were interested in pursuing with panels, and he was generous with good advice. It's also great that he's local to us.

Mark arranged installation promptly, he said it would be within three weeks of paying the deposit but he ended up squeezing us in less than a week later. The installation contractors (Adrian and his apprentice) were also highly professional, friendly, efficient and punctual. They had the panels installed and running within 24 hours.
Highly recommend Solaworx!

Installing a 7.4 kwh solar system

Mark from Solaworx was very helpful and spent the time to explain the process of obtaining solar and installing. The installation team under Andre attended on time and installed our arrays without any trouble completing the job. The system was connected to the grid by the installers. Leaving me just to contact our energy provider to organise a new meter.

The company is local and provides prompt service. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for solar installation

My Solar

After reviewing quotes from your suggested providers I found SOLARWORX to be the cheapest of 2 quotes using the same product , But also replaced old meter box in the quote, which made a total saving of about $2000.
The installation was done 2 weeks after contract signed, It took 3 Hrs to install and now to wait and see my next Account

Lots of trouble

We had nothing but trouble with this company. They stopped being responsive to queries after the contract was signed. After this, queries were often ignored or brushed off as being not relevant. Unfortunately a deposit had been paid so we were unable to back out of the contract. The attitude was so unprofessional we refused to speak with him by phone & insisted on written communication only.

We had people turning up with no advance warning that someone was coming.

Items mentioned in the quote were not provided until we chased them up eg. An Installation Manual. Eventually we received ad hoc bits of information in respect of this but no “Comprehensive Installation Manual” as promised in their quote.

We had the Solar Analytics monitoring system installed but the basic system information uploaded to the monitoring app was sloppy & incorrect. Again this was not rectified till chased up many times.
The time elapsed between deposit being paid & installation was 3 months (which did include a short lockdown period).

We had no problem with the tradesmen themselves. They did a good job & the system is working well. However we had a Warranty issue with one of the microinverters not working. When raised with Solaworx (quite a few times before they responded) we were promised a quick fix, which never happened, despite numerous follow up emails & messages. Disappointingly we had to contact the Clean Energy Commission to force Solaworx to honour the warranty & fix the problem. The CEC also had to make them provide the outstanding installation documentation which was missing.

We would not recommend this company to anyone.

Great service

Really happy with the upgrade to a bigger system, knowledgeable, good tradies to deal with and it works a treat, finally in credit on the power bills.
I went for a three year payment plan, the finance was easy and it’s paying for itself, happy days…

Airport Over 50s 10Kw Solar Installation

We are extremely pleased with the Solar installation at our Club and would recommend Solaworx to others.
We had 36 additional panels installed for a 10Kw system extension.and found Solaworx to be professional, clear, helpful, effecient and good value for money.
Their attention to detail was highly commendable as was their willingness to work around our activity schedule.
We would definitely use them again for any further extensions required.

Great system from a great business.

I was really nervous about getting solar panels, especially given the investment required to get a top quality one. Mark from Solaworx took all the stress away. He explained all the ins and outs of various systems in a way I could understand. He also future proofed the system for my later requirements. Installation was prompt and the installers were extremely professional and friendly and made no mess whatsoever.
Mark and the guys took me through the system and showed me how it all worked, how to monitor it etc.
Even now, Mark is at the end of the phone if I have any questions. After sales service and monitoring is exceptional.

Aldinga Bay Bowling Club

Mark was great from day one. Being a local he understood our needs and addressed everything accordingly. As this was a solar installation that was being paid for by Members and on a Council property he went above and beyond to assist us.
The installation guys were 10/10, polite, tidy and punctual, we could not have asked for better they were very professional.
Highly recommend and happy for potential customers to drive past the Aldinga Bay Bowling Club, Port Road at Aldinga Beach and check out our pride and joy :-)

Highly experienced, motivated and interested customer needs

Quoting was competitive and readily adapted to my particular needs once I knew what I wanted. Not the cheapest in terms of price, but still best value in terms of service, expertise and the complete package.
Installation was punctual, polite, and very efficient.

Easy to deal with. Quick installation

From start to finish, Mark was great to deal with. No pressure, all of the relevant information was provided so we could make the decision that was best for us.

After deciding the system we wanted, we were able to have it installed within a couple of weeks.

Everything has been working as expected.

Would definitely recommend Mark and Solaworx!

All around a great experience

We had very specific requirements for the system we wanted to buy. After talking to many different suppliers we met up with Mark from Solarworx and had the feeling that he really knew what he was talking about. He listened to us and came up with a system we thought was right. The installation by Brandon was very professional he made always time for us to explain all the questions we had. It was a great experience from start to finish.
Thank you Mark and Brandon

Friendly and professional

SolaWorx from the start of the quoting process to the finish of the installation they were friendly very knowledgeable and punctual, my roof and the installation was a little on the difficult side with panel orientation but Mark from SolaWorx was able to explain to me just how this would all work, the trade guys that come to my house was friendly and answered any questions I had, one of the things that stood out for me was they knew all about products they were selling and installing so all in all it was a positive experience and made possible by Finn Peacock and solar quotes.

Exceeded all expectations. Perfect

The whole quoting process was very simple. Mark made everything clear via calls and email with personal service. Very good value for money, unbeatable price. Installation started just 2 days after selecting Solaworx.
The install process was great. Brandon did an amazing job. Perfect positioning of the panels/inverter. Very professional. He cleaned everything up after him and explained how everything worked. Couldn't be happier with the whole process. Highly reccomended.

Solar Power a New Experience

Mark is genial, knowledgeable and helpful. When he first visited the site he discussed other options that had been tendered and gave me enough information to guide me to the most suitable choice for our home. The installers from Thoroughtec arrived on time and were professional, friendly and willing to answer any of my questions.

As part of a major renovation the Solar Installation was one of the last things we had done. A considerable investment but immediately we were able to see that it was a sound and sensible use of our budget. Very happy with the entire process

One Very Happy Duckie

Mark from Solaworx has done me proud. I'm over the moon. My house now rocks an excellent high quality 12.58kw system, that should stand me in good stead for my impending retirement. From initial meeting, to one highly detailed and itemised quote, to completion - took 3 weeks. !!! A huge testament to Marks overall management. Amazing. Installation was completed with the same level of excellence. Brandon, Adrian, and Andre from Thoroughtec attended to every detail. They were so generous with their time and explanations around what I needed to know as the proud new owner.

But the real Hero in all of this is Finn Peacock. Finn, you have no idea how valuable your service has been. I attended your free info session about 18months ago at Aldinga Library, and bought your book. Then went on to request 3 Quotes. You are instrumental to my sorting the wheat from the chaff, in this potentially overwhelming industry. I got exactly the system I wanted, after reading your book twice and perusing your website. You've empowered me, and I thankyou.

Very prompt installer, great communication and accessibility throughout

The quoting process was fast and clear, with a site visit to finalise the details and discuss the options.
Andrea and his team arrived on time and worked efficiently, tidying the site when they were done and the installers were polite throughout and ensured that we were happy with the install along the way. Their customer service was great, always available to discuss concerns from asking for the quote onwards.

Great Solar package

Solaworx came recommended by a neighbour, and we are very grateful for the recommendation. This was our first time with solar installation and it was great to talk with Mark face to face to work out what we needed. Mark and the team of installers were very professional and knowledgeable. Installation occurred during a major renovation, and any minor issues that arose were dealt with quickly and without fuss. Andre, Adrian and the team installed the system quickly and efficiently and were very professional with their work and on site discussions. System is working beautifully and would highly recommend Solaworx to anyone who wants to install solar.

Have highly recommended to friends

Very prompt response from installer after submitting enquiry on SolarQuotes. Painless process of on paper then on site quotes. Elected for a "top end" system: 10 kW total (Trina solar panels and Enphase microinverters) with 5 kW export limiter for single-phase supply. Minimal delay from placing order and reasonable deposit to scheduled installation day. Needed old solar water heater taken off roof which they performed for a reasonable excess cost.

Only minor issues with installation: ended up requiring two days and asked for partial payment prior to job completion, and electrician needed to return again a few days later as a component was installed backwards (incorrect power production readings on monitor).

I've now had the system for nearly two months and it has functioned as advertised and without fault.

Very happy customer and have recommended solar and this installer in particular to my friends.

Easy process and great results!

The guys at Solarworx were awesome to work with. Very knowledgeable and helpful. They were patient when we were looking through various quotes but quick and easy to deal with when we decided to go with them. They guided us though the process and proved very wise and trustworthy.

The installers (Thoroughtec) were very quick and neat in their work. Highly recommend them. The electrician noticed an error in our air-conditioning isolation switch (or lack of one) and was able to fix it for a very decent price, saving the cost of a new house because of an electrical fire. So cant say good enough things about them! A great bunch of people all round and the ideal tradesmen.

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

Yes, it is very good. I find the Opal Solar panels to be very good. I already had a 1.5kw system with the approval to go to 3kw. The original 1.5kw system has 7 x 215w panels, the new system has 5 x 300w panels. The new system on most days is producing more power then the original system, and I have had 2 electricity bills with a credit since I put the new system up to increase to 3kw. I am now thinking of getting a storage battery.

After specifying my requirements, various quotes were accessible online. I could see the options of various panels and invertors(datasheets were available for download). Once I had decided, it was just a simple click to accept the quote. Invoices were received by email and was straight forward.
Installation was quick and delays due to windy weather were handled professionally.
I did have some issues with the installation of the monitoring system, but now appears to be fixed after a couple of return visits.

solved all my problems.

I can't thank Mark Moody enough, I rang mark after another company installed my solar system and it was a disaster.

From the start to finish in the end SA power got involved and told me my system was operating illegally and had to be fix.

So I rang Mark and within a few weeks every thing was fixed and operating as it should have in the first place.

So after a couple of months I rang Mark to have a Tesla battery installed and the guys that installed it did a lovely job
and it is fantastic.

I can not Thank Mark and his team from Solaworks enough for all there help.
