Why use us? Good question as we are not the absolute cheapest and we will never be and nor do I plan to be. What we are is a quality company, with quality staff and quality work ethics which will far outweigh a small few $100 saving you may catch with somebody else. Our reviews speak for themselves.
All our installations are done in house, we don't use subcontractors or salesman. You will deal with one person from start to finish.
We have successfully been in business since 2012 and completed over 5000 installations through a rocky industry. Our diversity of work outside of solar will keep us around long after the fly by night sales companies have liquidated.
We are here for a long time and plan to stand by our work for many years to come.

Surge It Solar and Electrical Solar Reviews

Quality service you can trust

Surge It Solar are a great company to deal with.
Nick took the time to talk me through my options and give advice on what would be the best option for me. Nick was genuine and honest which gave me confidence in his recommendations.
The install was super easy. Nick's team were fast, efficient and clean. Everything looks great!
The team took the time to setup the smart meter on my app and walk me through the functions.

Definitely a very happy customer :-)

Great experience!

Nick and the team were very professional, efficient, accommodating and clean and tidy. The process from initial contact to virtual handshakes was excellent. Very happy with the quality of materials and the value for money. Thanks! Show additional information

Fantastic from start to finish.

My daughter had a hassle free installation of a complete new system using Surge It and recommended Nick and his team when we decided to upgrade our existing system. From the very first phone call, I felt comfortable and confident with the decision to use Surge It. The boys arrived early, and completed the job with no dramas. They even waited back and helped me set up the WiFi system on my phone, to monitor production. Nick gave us a follow up call the night of installation to check it all went ok and that we were happy with the job.

We have no hesitation in recommending Surge It for your all your Solar needs.

Thank you Nick, Hayden, Luke and Will

Great experience from start to finish

I had done quite a bit of research on solar systems and had several companies come out to quote. Many of the companies had more "salesman" type people come out and I found several of them lacked the practical aspects of installing a solar system which was important to me because I had a few non-standard aspects to my solar installation. Having Nick come out who actually does the installs to quote was good. He was very honest in the sales/quoting process and picked up on a few issues with how the install would go that others companies didn't. His communication leading up to the install was great. On the day his team arrived on time and straight away you could tell they take pride in their work on how well they look after their tools and how methodically they went about planning the install and laying out the solar system. Once completed they left a clean site and provided good info on how the system worked and they took time to answer all my questions. And as Surge It does other electrical work we also had them install a second story air-con unit which was logistically a bit challenging but they nailed it. Overall a great experience from start to finish. Show additional information

Great installer, honest and easy to deal with

Nick is a good communicator and easy to deal with. Installation was tidy and efficient. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. Show additional information

Fast Turn around time and great advice

Could not recommend these guys more. I made a call to Surge It Solar and Electrical at about 10:00am within two hours, and with some great advice I had decided to go with these guys. Not to mention that they could install the system I picked the very next day! This was just pure luck, but still, can't complain! Really know their stuff, and can cater to any budget. I was not interested in cheap crap or overpriced cheap crap in my case, as I had been burnt before, and just wanted a decent quality system. The guys that come out to do the install (employees of Surge It Solar and Electrical) were very friendly, and still offering advice, even at this point. Show additional information

Custom installation, Quality hardware, On Time and Efficient

Nick and his team were great from start to finish.

They installed the brackets prior to my roof restoration and then returned to complete the rest of the works.

They listened to my ideas and customised a panel layout to suit future renovations.

I would highly recommened Surge it to anyone considering Solar in the wider Brisbane area.

Quality hardware, great pricing and even better service

No fuss quality workmanship

We had our Solar system installed by Surge It in January 2018. Nick came out and provided his all inclusive quote whilst letting us know exactly how he would install the system and gave us a couple of options on which panels and inverter to go with.

The Surge It team turned up on time of the day of installation and happily answered all of my questions regarding the system. Surge It also replaced our meter box with a new one and moved toward the front of the house.

Once the job was complete all rubbish was removed and Nick explained what to expect from the system.
It’s been just over 2 years now and the system has worked faultlessly whilst exceeding our expectations.

We have had The team from Surge It back since to install a couple of aircon systems and also some general electrical work.

The team from Surge It are honest, reliable tradesmen that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Perfect install and quality products

The first thing you notice about Surge IT Solar is their honesty. They openly admit they won’t be the cheapest and won’t compete with the cheap packages. But what they offer is quality brands at an affordable price with an exceptional installation.

The sales and quoting process was very easy and was lucky enough to be installed within the week. The two gents onsite were very quick with a neat installation (picture attached). I was impressed with the speed of the install and once ready, Luke sat down and installed the monitoring app on my phone to ensure all was working correctly.

Nick (Director) finalised all the paperwork with the power company to install the new meter.

Hugely impressed with the whole process from Surge IT, and have already passed over his number to two friends looking at getting solar.

Can’t recommend highly enough!!

Very happy with Nick’s work. Absolutely perfect, I highly recommend him.

Very good value for price and amazing customer service with a hard working team. I was looking around for a while to find a solar company and I’m very happy that I picked Surge it. Show additional information

Great service and we are happy with the product we received.

Quoting and service was great and easy. Nick had a lot of packages available with straight forward prices on his facebook page. We asked questions and Nick came out to see what would suit our needs the best and was able to quickly install the system shortly after. Nick showed my partner how to get and use the app to monitor the solar panel use and we have had this installed for around 8 months now and are still very happy. Would recommend and have done to neighbours who have used Nick. Show additional information

Professional Service

Nick and the boys were very professional, did a very neat job, and looks great! They explained the system to us very thoroughly and couldn’t do enough for us. Highly recommend nick and the boys for anyone needing solar or electrical work done.

Great experience from first contact to now.

Nick and his team installed a large system on our house. The whole process was smooth. Nick gave me honest advise about where to install the systems, the size and brands of equipment that he offered. Even though I had many many questions he took the time to answer them and give reasons why the options would work or would not work.
His team on the day of install turned up on time and worked like an F1 pit crew. They worked fast, and they worked clean. They knew what they needed to do and they did it, no one was wasting time. It was good to see an efficient crew.
Nick kept me informed through every stage of the process. And post install has answered all of my questions about the app and usage reports.

I would easily use Nick and his team again on our next home.

Good old fashioned service

How was the sales/quoting process?

Nick was honest, straight forward and knew what he was talking about. What impressed me most was Nick was not only the person who was selling the solar but installs the solar systems as well.

I had a thousand questions about solar and Nick had no issues answering all of them. No BS.. just the facts.

How did the installation go? Polite? Tidy? Punctual?

Very efficient and punctual. Nick personally showed me the panels that were going to be installed and re-explained to me the installation process. simple and easy

How was the customer service? e.g. did they help organise the grid connection after the install?

No issues, Nick helped me setup my inverter app, showed me how to use the app and ran me through what the process is going forward

Overall, NIck's company is value for money. i will be recommending Nick to anyone who wants a solar system.

Great install that works and looks good.

Nick and his team did a great job installing our LG/Fronius 8.75kw system.

The install was priced fairly and his team installed the panels carefully on a freshly painted roof. The advise from start to finish contained no bullshit and the system just works as it should.

Fantastic to deal with. Very Professional.

Nick and his team at Surge It Solar and Electrical were a pleasure to deal with from the initial call right through installation and answering any questions afterwards. The quality of the work is great. Nick talked to us about our needs and recommended a system to suit. He gave us a couple of options to meet our budget and couldn't be happier. Didn't try to sell us anything we didn't need.

The team installing the system where punctual and cleaned up completely once finished. Nick helped with everything afterwards to ensure it was connected to the grid.

Solar Installation

Nick was awesome and patient through the process. He answered all my questions and at the end installed what I wanted. The installation is neat and quick. Once installation was completed Nick organised EWR to be completed and send me proof for my record. The team that came up on the day of the installation clean up after themselves and were polite. Overall, I would recommend Nick and his team to anyone looking for solar installation. Show additional information

Fantastic installer - neat and to standard

Nick and his team are absolutely one of the best installers in Brisbane. An easy process from start to finish, no BS pricing and accurate advice. As a proper full service electrical company Nick also completed a move of my ducted air conditioner heat pump and upgraded the control system to iZone. As a fastidious electrical engineer I can absolutely say that the team conduct their work in a neat and complaint way and leave your home as they found it. Customer service throughout quote/install/connection was flawless and polite. Very happy to support this fantastic small business. Show additional information

I got the quote from the bloke who owned the business he knew his products knew his install price.
I'd done my research new what I wanted. I paid, they installed it. Not a sub contractor but surge it solar.
In my case was installed 4 days after my quote.
Rippa company would use again,

Fantastic experience all round!

Nick was great to deal with throughout the whole process and was very knowledgeable in terms of the products and coming up with the best solution for what suited my requirements.

Everything went like clockwork on the day of install, the guys were very polite and friendly and did a great job of cleaning up after all works were completed.

I have recommended Nick to a few other people so far and wouldn't hesitate to continue to do so for anyone else looking for great value and quality workmanship.

Superb installer

Nick and his team provided fantastic service and installed top quality solar panels. It’s completed within 2 days. I couldn’t be more satisfied with his service not only the installation of solar panels but how Nick provides for his customer. I already recommended to my colleagues and I would also recommend to my families and friends Show additional information

No fuss Solar

Highly recommend Nick at Surge It Solar. Quick to come round and quote and installation within a week later. Nick did the install along with 2 others and were super quick. If you want a good system that is competive in price and no pushy sales person, Nick is the guy. Show additional information

Excellent install for a fantastic price

Nick and his team were amazing from start to finish. No question was left unanswered. They provided a very detailed quote with lots of information, came out and inspected the roof and gave us the best configuration possible. From quote to completed install it was done in a week. They helped out with all the grid connection issues on the Energex end and kept us updated. Cannot recommend Surge It any more highly. Excellent, neat and tidy workmanship with a friendly team. Always recommend them when anyone asks me about Solar. Show additional information

No Hassles, No Mess, No Worries

I sent Surge It some photos on the Monday, they provided a quote for a 6.6kw solar system on the Tuesday and it was installed and running on the Friday ... no hassles at all. His team left no mess at all, and they took the time to do a quality job of installing the inverter and roof panels without any ugly ducting. Great to have had the experience of dealing with personable tradies who use their brains and take pride in their work. Show additional information

Great personalised service with solid pre-sales and after-sales advice.

What first had me sold was it was clear I wasn't dealing with one of those solar companies that are simply a call center full of aggressive sales staff and a phone book of subcontractors to undertake the work.

Nick was full of insight, advice and explanations, and made the install smooth sailing from quote to completion. Being a full service electrician company also gave me the peace-of-mind that their viability doesn't solely rely on solar as the govt solar rebates decrease.

Grid connection was seamlessly and efficiently managed (and my provider even back-dated the tarrif payments to the precise day solar was connected).

Quality Rec panels and Fronius inverter were supplied, with the Fronius Smart Meter configured and connected to my mobile app on the same day the solar was installed. They gave very clear instructions on how to operate and monitor the app.

All in all, I have zero regrets and nothing but good things to say about the products supplied, quality of work, price and efficiency of the installation.

Nick was honest and spent some time discussing different solar options with us during the sales process, he was polite and informed us about any delays asap and spent time after installation explaining the set up with us. Show additional information

What a awesome experience

Was recommended by a mate to use Surge it Solar and to be honest I couldn't be happier.
Nick and his team were outstanding from start to finish. Knocked the job over in one day with short notice and the workmanship was outstanding.

Thanks Jason
