Fantastic Installers

Firstly, the quoting/sales system is impressive it was done in real time over the phone, sending necessary information through MMS etc.
The installers clearly new their stuff and the installation done very soon after the agreement. They had no trouble navigating the very old building. They were also very pleasant and friendly.
Currently waiting for the meter to be upgraded which Stag initiated then they will return to complete the grid connection and the installers were more than happy to return and show me how the system operates and navigating the LED panel on the inverter.

Very fast from ordering to install

The whole team at Stag were great. They explained why they recommended the products and even provided examples of their own staff using them. I was booked in super quick and the whole system was installed in a day. End to End the process was less than a week.

Great process, responsive and helpful team

The whole process, from quoting to installation, went well. While a few issues specific to the site arose, these were sorted out quickly and effectively and I felt included in the decision making process. The installation team arrived on time, were friendly and polite, and cleaned up at the end. I was shown how to use the app on the inverter, and the EV charger, and was encouraged to ask for help if and when needed.

Top job, professional team.

Right from the beginning, the team from Stag have done an outstanding job of communicating with me. They made sure the Solar system designed was the best fit for my requirements, and the install team have always made sure I'm across everything that's going on.
They have been very flexible to work in with me so that the install fit with other work I was having done at the same time.

I couldn't be happier with the system they they've built, nor with the exemplary service provided.

Very happy

We studied various quotes and had a long debate. Stag was not the cheapest but we were impressed by their reputation/reviews and were able to negotiate slightly on price. Installation crew were fantastic, consultative, responsive and hard working - on the first day they arrived at 8am and left in the dark at 6pm! Original ratings

Thank you, Michael, for your review. We're happy to hear that our team provided great service. We'll be sure to pass along your kind words to them.

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

Yes, we are saving hundreds quarterly, over $2.5k in the first year. Very happy with the outcome so far.

Excellent experience

Very quick response to quite request, used a great system to schedule phone call. Spent a lot of time ensuring I understood the process, requirements, and what to look for even if I chose not to proceed with Stag.
The quote was easy to understand and whilst the most expensive, demonstrated the best value for us.
Install happened very quickly, and even with rain delays was all done well - with clear and regular communication.
Crews were very polite, site was left clean and the system itself was explained in detail. Great service!

A great experience

The whole process from quote to installation went so smooth. Daniel who did all our work was wonderful when explaining how Solar works and how it will effect our Bill. The installers were all on time and of neat appearance. It was a great experience that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stag Electrical to my family and friends.

Excellent Service - Thoroughly Recommend

From the start, dealing with Stag Electrical was easy, they were quick to respond to quotes and information, and I found them to continue their exemplary service throughout the whole process. Excellent customer service, as well as professional installation. They took the time to fully and clearly explain the system once they had completed the installation. For our household needs, they were spot on in the recommendation for the type of system required. I would thoroughly recommend them (and already have) to anyone requiring a fully professional service.

Seamless Install

Our overall experience was pretty good, particularly around the installation of the system. The team that completed this task were on site early and were very efficient, consulting throughout the process. They were only too willing to move furniture etc in the garage in order to install the inverter where it was best suited. They tidied up pretty well afterwards too.
The extra details, such as organising a new smart meter etc were also taken care of.
The only downside I would comment on, was that the sales team were overly persistent, verging on almost being pushy. It very nearly pushed me towards another installer.

Exceptional service!

Service was exceptional from beginning to end. The first phone consult was taken seriously. The team took the time to go through each option and were really clear with costs involved and benefits with each option. I didn’t feel pressured at all and it was clear that they understood what we needed. They were on time and prompt with installation and were super tidy with the clean up afterwards. The communication was paramount and there were no issues with communication through the whole process. We are extremely happy with the service and highly recommend them to family and friends!

Very prompt and great communication.

I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism and communication from the very first phone call right through to the end of the installation process.
At the beginning I spoke to Daniel on the phone. We discussed my issues and why I was looking at this option for my house. He was wonderful in helping me find the best option for me and at the best price. He didn't try to make me choose something outside my budget range which is a real plus!!
Once I had signed off on the proposal and agreed to the terms Stag had electricians at my house the next working day. I said yes on Friday and the workmen were at my house on Monday.
This was extremely prompt and efficient. The workmen were absolutely fantastic, discussed and explained everything thoroughly and even rang me to discuss changes to panel placements they felt would be beneficial.

I'd use Stag for all of my electrical needs in the future. Their ability to be punctual, efficient, clean and communicative are all qualities that made my process easy and enjoyable.

Fantastic Solar Installer

From the very first phone call to the end product of the installation of my solar, the whole process has been seamless with Stag Electrical Solar and Refrigeration.
Everyone from the admin staff Hannah to the tradies like Jesse, have been exceptionally professional, highly knowledgeable, and very courteous.
They arrived on time, kept everything clean and tidy whilst they were working.
I was asked in the morning exactly how much sun I get at the front and back of the property. Realising that it is more of a 50/50 split, I was asked if they could redo the design to get a more even split with the panels. Which I was more than happy to OK.
I cannot recommend them high enough for your solar needs.
I know they do other electricial work, I don't presently have any further work that needs doing however, they will be the first phone call when I do.
Great work from a great team.

Great company to be involved with

The whole process was hassle free and easy to negotiate, from talking about the quote, the girls in the office explaining how to pay the deposit and then the balance, the guys installing the system and any follow up stuff. they even gave us a courteous call, weeks later, to see how things were going with the system.

Solar installation in Palmerston

From contacting them to fully installed was a couple of weeks. Friendly staff who were always on site on time. Our installation was one of the larger jobs with a 3 Phase battery connection. I would highly recommend Stag Electrical for solar installations.

Fantastic experience

I was very happy with the process from the outset. The team went out of their way to walk through multiple options, and provide honest advice around what system best suited our needs.
Once we had made the decision to proceed, everything happened quickly and the install team were very professional and super friendly. At the end of the install a comprehensive overview of all relative operational facets of the system was provided.
Overall, a great experience!

Seamless installation

Sales and quoting process was straightforward and easy to understand, questions were answered quickly.
Installation was very efficient and professional. The guys arrived on time and were super polite. All panels and the battery were installed in one day and the guys cleaned up all materials and left my home exactly how they had found it. I am really happy with the install. Sungrow battery was installed outside which was a positive for me as it didn't take up space in my garage.

Overall very good

Sales quoting process was good. Unfortunately follow up communication wasn’t as I had to call them twice based on the expected delivery timeframe they had given me. Better to under promise and over deliver rather than other way around. Install was also very good and I would be happy to recommend them for your solar install.

My solar panel installation

Stag Electrical Solar and Refrigeration were the 1st company recommended by Solar Quotes to make contact with me. It was initially by email, but was followed up shortly afterwards by phone. The email requested that I complete a survey and the call was scheduled after it had been submitted. The call with Chris was very informative and it was agreed that Stag would prepare a solar panel proposal remotely, as they were a two hour drive away. The proposal was emailed to me on the same day. It contained pricing for two possible systems: a 10kW system and a system as big as the roof would allow. This ended up being about 13kWs. Chris further stated that, if and when I accepted, they could install the system quite promptly. The system they quoted used components from the entry level side of Solar Quotes’ matrix of quality components, but Chris was adamant that the components quoted were excellent value for money. They also had excellent warranties. Solar Quotes later confirmed that they held the quoted parts in high regard. As I was still to get the other 2 quotes, I used the wait time to compare the Stag quote with the information on the Solar Quotes web site. Initially, it appeared to have all the necessary information. However, it wasn’t until the other quotes arrived that I found out there were other questions to be asked. Stag responded quickly and Chris was able to clarify and answer my questions without hesitation. After the other quotes arrived, it was quite obvious that Stag had quoted the best materials for the best price. While the quotes varied in design and in the materials to be supplied, Stag ended up being in the middle price wise, with the cheaper quote using inferior components. Once I accepted the Stag quote, Chris was able to arrange for the installation to be done very quickly. The team of tradesmen arrived on time, installed everything within two days, commissioned the system and cleaned up afterwards. I was asked to make contact with my electricity provider in order to ask them to configure the meter for solar power and it was all done. I can now watch an app on my iPad that shows me how the panels are going. Thank you Stag. You’re one of the best installers in the Central West.

Great Service, Great Communication, Great Product

As anyone would, I obtained multiple quotes to have solar installed. The initial meeting was a telephone consultation. They told me they would ring me at 10:30 on Friday morning. A couple of hours earlier I got a reminder text and I got the call at 10:30 on the dot. Stag Electrical was the only company that listened to what I wanted and tailored a solution to deliver that. They provided four quotes, 2 x different size systems with and without a battery. I opted for the 13.3kW system and a 9.6kW battery. The following Friday, seven days after receiving the quotes I paid the 10% deposit. They called me on Sunday to arrange installation commencing at 8:30 Monday morning, and to be completed by Tuesday.

Again, the installation team arrived at my home on time and commenced the installation. The installation process was incident-free, and the job was completed by Tuesday afternoon.

In summary, if you want a fast reliable service, choose Stag Electrical.

Great to deal with, communication etc. Fast installation, very tidy and punctual.

Had an issue after installation, with the smart metre installation (not stag) and Stag promptly came to fix the issue so the metre could be installed and we could start using our solar.

Would recommend to other family's.

Quality in every way

Initial quoting was quite basic but did give me enough information to pursue further information. I had a thorough explanation and personal quote provided over zoom by an experienced sales team with no pressure whatsoever. Installation happened the day after I paid the deposit and the transpersonal were polite and flexible around my work from home commitments. I got a text message follow up on the weekend so see how it was running and check the grid connection was in progress. I would be happy to recommend Stagg to anyone looking to install a solar system and will approach them first if I need to do it again.

First Class Experience

From the first time I contacted Stag Electrical to the completion of the installation of our new solar power system they displayed a high level of customer service and professionalism.

They provided the quote quickly after visiting our home to survey the site and it was spot on to the estimate that I was given. They use a very sophisticated quoting system that allows the customer to mix and match options.

The Stag team arrived to commence the installation the same week we accepted the quote. Before every visit during the installation process they contacted me by phone or text to say when they would arrive. Every step was explained and any requirement to turn off the power was always with a good deal of notice so we were properly prepared.

We have now had our system in place for a couple of days and we are yet to buy energy from the grid. A completely successful system that delivers real savings on energy bills.

The entire process was completed in a very professional way and the workmanship is spot on. A very neat addition to the side of our house.

Highly recommend Stag Electrical and would definitely use their services again should I require it. Well done to the team at Stag !!

Very Professional

From the first phone call to organize the quote to saying farewell to the installers the whole process was handled very professionally and hassle free. The whole team at Stag were very helpful, including assisting with the application for a meter upgrade from our power company. They visited our property to do the quote and went through the options and process so we knew exactly where the panels would be placed and they took our requirements on board. The installation team were very efficient and professional and they cleaned up after themselves. A change in the placement of the inverter was not a problem. The crew were friendly and polite and punctual. Very impressed with the quality of the workmanship.

Great customer service

The cusomer service provided by the team was very impressive from quotation to installation to support. At every stage they were very professional and provided useful advice. They clearly went out of their way to be helpful.

A minor hiccup was that the initial proposed design was unable to be configured on site owing to unforseen technical requirements that became apparent on site. As our system was to be clearly seen from the backyard one of our requirements was to have this as asthetically pleasing as possible and this formed the basis of the original design. The need for change meant this could not be actioned which caused some consternation for us. The installation team was able to come up with a suitable and acceptable solution on site.

Highly recommended

What an amazing company :)

Wow, what an amazing experience!!! From the first time i chatted with the lovely Hannah, to Mitch coming to quote to Adam installing to then another lovely boy, didn't get his name chatting to me about the inverter. I have not been sooo impressed by a company for a bludy long time.

I will definitely highly recommend you to all my friends.
