A great experience from start to finish. Would highly recommend.

Couldn’t fault anything during the whole process. From quotation through to connection, Adrian and the team were professional, knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

Outstanding Quality & Service

Thoroughtec were recommended to me for the quality of their highly experienced expertise and service. As a construction manager, I wanted a top shelf operator for our solar installation and expected the highest of standards from start to finish.
Thoroughtec delivered exactly what I wanted and exceeded my expectations. Their process from quoting the job to completing it's installation was trouble free and the standard of workmanship was of the highest standard. Our system was installed in a day including grid and app connection, and our home was left immaculate.
As far as I'm concerned, Thoroughtec are the type of contractor you "fight to have" and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone expecting exemplary professionalism.

Prompt, professional service and installation,

All aspects of the change over of my old system to the new 6 KW were completed in a very professional and timely manner.
From the initial call out to to look at my old system (which had failed after 16 years of service) to the quotation, installation and follow-up on my new service, I felt fully informed and comfortable with the service provided.

A fine team of very professional and eager installers completed the change over in a very timely manner and ensured that the systems were fully functional.

All aspects of the communication processes and legal aspects in communication with Energy regulators and suppliers were handled by Adrian and the company in a seamless process.

There are probably cheaper options out there, but I have a first class system installed by professionals and look forward to years of energy savings.....

Thanks to all.

Looking for Solar, then no need to look past Thoroughtec!

We shopped around for some time, comparing various products on the market along with pricing, however we lacked the confidence to proceed with any of the suppliers. We were looking for a longstanding and ideally SA family business to support. We were fortunate to contact Adrian from Thoroughtec, and the rest is history!
Adrian's general knowledge of industry products was excellent, he took the time to visit and review our needs in person, (rather than send photos) He listened and advised and prepared a detailed quote specific to our needs. We were confident to proceed, and within a week of paying our deposit, our solar system was installed and working well. Adrian's communication was exemplary and he organised everything.
The trades installing the system were punctual, great workers, tidy and polite, and installed our large system in just over one day. We are very happy with our solar performance and feel we got great value for money.
Honestly, give these guys a call before you decide on a supplier, you will be glad you did!

Fantastic experience from start to end.

We were put in touch with Thoroughtec by Solar Quotes. Adrian came to visit the house, which was a great first step, and was very friendly, professional and informative.

Our installation all went very smoothly, even on a two storey house, which other providers had said would cost us more. The guys on the day did a great job, were very clean and efficient. Adrian was great at setting everything up with our energy provider with us, and walking me through the system. Four months on and we're really happy with the system and how its performing.

I also felt more confident dealing with a family business that has been around for so long. I'd definitely recommend Thoroughtec to anyone looking to install solar in Adelaide.

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

I did expect a higher discount with 2 x the original wattage, but the electricity company reduced our feed in tariff, so it has only reduced consumption by 10-15%. Still, we are happy with the installation

Personable installer. Great communication. Family run business but very professional.

The quoting process was great. All 3 solar companies came out to residence and all were polite and seemed to want to do best for our needs. However, in the end it came down to the fact that the company we went with was a family owned business and the sales rep was the installer so I was dealing with him directly rather than through a go between person for the company.

No-nonsense, easy process from start to finish.

Adrian was polite, and quoted without nonsense or a powerpoint presentation. Price is extremely competitive, installation was incredibly smooth and no issues. Arranged for further monitoring equipment with no fuss.

Professional service

I am completely satisfied with the solar system I have purchased and the service provided by Thoroughtec. It's so good to be able to keep track of the energy flowing in and out. Besides the financial incentive of generating my own power, I can see that I am making a small contribution to the environment.

Awesome installer

Sales and quoting process was great from the start. Adrian was punctual and wasn't trying to push any sales/ products like other solar installers out there. Installation went really well, there was a really quick turn around time after signing. They used some scrap cardboard to stop the grass getting trampled, and then went the extra step of running the cable through in the internal wall cavity rather than just running conduit on the outside of the house which was a nice touch. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Thoroughtec to my family and firends. The system has been working perfectly since (I got the Solar Analytics add on so have been keeping a keen eye on the production)

Great Service & Great System

Adrian from Thoroughtec was great from the start. He was the only one of the three people who quoted that came to do a house visit, which made it a really personalised service. He was extremely thorough in explaining the system, how it works, the components, the pros and cons of smaller and larger systems. There was no pressure, no sales talk - just refreshing honesty. Adrian and his team installed the system on the day they promised and everything was done really professionally and efficiently. There was practically no effort from me - Thoroughtec made the whole process really simple. I highly recommend Adrian and Thoroughtec.

Highly recommend this company

Thoroughtec came to quote a solar system for me. They were polite and explained everything in detail to help me understand how things would work as it was all a little confusing to me. Their quote was similar to other quotes I obtained. The team arrived on time on instillation day and cleaned up their rubbish before leaving. Customer service was outstanding. Very happy with everything and would recommend them to everyone

First full 1/4 of solar panel and battery install

Got my first bill today after a full 1/4 with both my solar panels and the battery. I’m in credit almost $600 dollars. Almost $300 of that is from my solar and battery install, the other is from gov rebate being back dated. To say I’m over the moon is an understatement. Going from an electricity bill if $700-$1700 a 1/4 to them owing me is absolutely awesome. Adrian and the crew did exactly as they said they would. Save me money and give me peace of mind. Thanks Adrian, I appreciate all the work you put in to give me what was needed to help us survive in these hard times.

Well Designed System for an Abnormal Roof Line.

I received six solar quotes before deciding to go with Thoroughtec Solar. Having a background in Electrical Engineering, it was pretty clear that Thoroughtec were the best option from the designs they proposed.

The team at Thoroughtec really did take the time to assess and properly plan the solar system on my roof (my roof layout is slightly unusual and the northern face has lots of different angles and aspects to deal with).
Some of the cheaper quotes wanted to use the southern roof for majority of the array which would have significantly reduced the energy produced whilst the expensive companies only recommended solar edge which would have been good for production but costed over $2000 more.
The 6.6kW system (5kW inverter) that Thoroughtec installed is the best balance of energy production without costing a fortune.

The Thoroughtec team clearly value their customers and do their best to ensure you end up with a quality solar system that you will be happy with.
I would certainly use these guys again in the future.

Best customer service

The sales and quoting process went well, the rep was friendly and took the time to answer all our questions. He was passionate about what he does but not pushy. The installation was great, arrived on time and did an amazing job. Initially the process of going solar was quite confusing but once we came across Thoroughtec we knew this was the company we wanted to go with. Customer service from start to finish was positive and always a supportive experience.

Fantastic service

Our bills were around $1100 per quarter this is now done to $200 and falling. So happy with the service we received from Thoroughtec. Adrian answered all our questions and explained everything in great detail. The installers were excellent and made sure that the site was clean and tidy when they finished. Our unit is working well beyond our expectations and I would highly recommend Thoroughtec for all your Solar needs.

We are very happy with everything!

We have a 8.91 kW system, 27 panels 330W REC Solar N-Peak, and the Fronius inverter 8.2.
Installed end of August 2020, it covers all our use, including water pump for the pool, and we are sending back to the grid. Our first bill is early this week and we are paying $0 electricity already...

I had done quite a bit of research before asking 5 companies for quotes, and my husband went on the roof to check what options we had for panels location.

2 quotes were sent to us per email with a photo of our roof, the locations offered were not smart due to the big tree we have on the north side, but I won't go further. They also wanted us to get specific brands of panels and inverter which we did not want due to law value for money.

The 3 other companies came to our place, and only one of them went on the roof straight away, it was Adrian from Thoroughtec.

To make it short, Adrian was very professional all along the process, highly knowledgable, it was always our decision and we were not pushed to buy specific brands while other companies were a bit pushy.
We found the best options for our shady roof, with the 27 panels spread across the north and the west sides, so they get the sun all day long. We got the brand we wanted, the warranties we wanted, and we are really happy with the process. We now have solar power steady all day long. We have a Fronius inverter because it is simply the best.

The panels took a bit longer to arrive due to Covid-19 creating chaos in transports and delays in shipments, but we knew it was not in Thoroughtec's hands to make it faster. They followed up with us on regular basis and were always prompt to answer our questions. Installation was done as soon as they got the panels, end of August 2020. Great work, the team was super nice and effective! They worked in the rain.. but still smiling and in good spirit!

Overall great experience, on-time, clean and effective work, very polite and nice team, super reliable, very helpful all along.
Adrian was a big help with the grid connection process after installation as the energy supplier (not naming them) was a bit very very much not reliable at all! (had to call them 4 times and Adrian called them twice..).
Adrian was also always a great source of information and help (I do ask many questions, thank you Adrian for your patience!)

We will also ask Thoroughtec to install a battery as soon as the prices are lower. They made our system ready for it.

Thanks again for the great work guys! Em & Gary

Reliable & Stress Free Solar Installation Company

We couldn’t be happier with Thoroughtec Pty Ltd. Every step of the process from the first consultation through to the installation was excellent. Adrian was extremely knowledgeable and his recommendations for the system we needed was spot on. We were provided with detailed reports and graphs of what we could expect and Adrian was happy to answer all of our questions. The installation was done quickly and efficiently with no mess at all. The team arrived on time every time and kept us informed as to what stage they were at throughout the whole process. It’s also worth mentioning that their after sale service is also exceptional. It is rare to find such an honest company who actually deliver what they promise. We would not hesitate to recommend them.
