Velocity Solar Solar Reviews

6.6kW system. Quality and efficient installation.

Quote was done on-site during our house build and whilst not 100% accurate regarding the final layout due to no roof access it was good enough to quote the price for our 20 panels for our 6.6kW System. It came up a bit more expensive than other quotes but for much better quality panels/inverter. We felt it was a much better quality/price option whilst also giving the work to a local installer.

Very helpful staff over the phone and by email. Got it installed within 3 months of original quote.

Installation done efficiently in one day althought on-site leader lacked serious customer service skills and was not very helpful at all in offering proper solutions to encountered problems. It felt like he just wanted the job done and move on to the next one.

Aside from that the job was done properly and the after install support was very good with grid connection going smoothly in a timely manner.

Good service

Velocity provided good service and value for money. They were open to discus/make changes to the original design. Any queries were promptly answered. The whole process went smoothly. They managed all the paperwork for the installation, including that for connection to the grid. The installation and commissioning, went smoothly. Installers arrived at the time designated. The installations appears to be of a high standard. Power is flowing. Show additional information

Great service

Velocity solar were professional and efficient in the installation of our system. A great job by Travers and his guys. Show additional information

Excellent service and attention to detail

Velocity was supportive and attentive. Brad worked to help us before we even build our home. They were always trying to make things easier. They are highly professional and, like our neighbours, we would highly recommend them. They also support apprentices - but your work will be overseen and checked by A-grade electricians. Our systems is performing very well. Installation went smoothly despite our strong winds. Unlike some installers who try and push you to their way of thinking, Velocity has the patience to work through the challenges with you. If you are finding the choices and information overwhelming or want to be sure of excellent results then we recommend them. They only use the proven best equipment. Their followup has been excellent.

Velocity have been lovely to deal with and the installation went very smoothly

The sales and quoting process was very detailed and thorough. We had a lot of questions which were all answered very professionally and promptly. The sales person that reviewed our house initially was very knowledgeable and not at all push wish we really liked. They talked us through the rebate process and explained everything in detail.

The team that came to install the system were also extremely professional and had excellent communication. They were efficient and tidy.

The ongoing customer service has been great with prompt relies and have facilitated our connection to the grid.

Great service, great system

We did extensive research into solar systems and installers and after aproaching four companies, we decided on Velocity Solar. They were all professional and prompt, and delivered high-quality products and service. Brad Ott (owner), Nicole (office and admin) and Trav (installer) were all exceptional. They installed a 6.3 kW system (REC panels) on a 5 kW Fronius inverter, split between east and west-facing arrays. I monitor our performance regularly (methods on SolarQuotes) and know that we’re running at ~90% of predicted maximum… confident the system from Velocity Solar is performing really well. I highly recommend this group. Show additional information
The whole process from start to finish has been handled efficiently and with our interests foremost by both sales and installation team from Velocity Solar. This included assistance in applying for the Victorian solar panel rebate and a willingness to fully answer and find out the details in response to the numerous questions we asked. While our system has only become operational in the last three days (installation slightly delayed by inclement weather), we have nothing but praise for the whole team at Velocity Solar, whose politeness and willingness to help and to explain the technical and other aspects of our system has been exemplary. At this early point in time we have been completely satisfied with the performance of the system.

We have also been very grateful to Solar Quotes for the comprehensive information available on the website, the reviews of equipment and installers, and the very good advice given

Velocity Solar installed a high quality PV system to our house at a competitive price and so far we cannot fault it. From the beginning Brad and Paul were honest, the communication was great and were able to answer all of our questions. The installation process with Velocity Solar was trouble free with the guys turning up on the day as promised, were polite and cheery and the workmanship was great. The tiles were trimmed neatly, the Radiant racking system was of top quality, trimmed off against the panels so there was no ugly overhang and no shortcuts were taken even when the guys discovered the steel frame trusses in our roof were at a greater spacing thus requiring additional brackets to be sent from an hour away. The invertor was installed in the garage, the meter was rewired to make it safer, safety stickers were installed, all wiring was concealed with none visible from the outside and protective covers were installed over isolator switches.
We received an information pack of the system, were stepped through the emergency shut down and maintenance procedures and a guide of the process in the coming weeks in relation to Powercor inspections, certificates, energy retailers and feed-in tarrifs. Velocity Solar's princing also offers us a 12 month follow up inspection, system performance check and panel clean. I would highly recommend Velocity Solar for your PV system.

Equipment was only installed last Thursday (21st June) so no knowledge of any operable benefits yet, but was pleased with the credibility of the people at Velocity Solar, and the better appearance of the completed installation compared with a close neighbour (a different supplier). Am looking forward to the finalisation of the link with Powercor through my retailer (Origin), and the subsequent improvement in my power bills. Show additional information
Still waiting to schedule in the install date – but so far we are happy, we have purchased a high quality 5kw system for around $6.5K when the "door knockers" who represented the bulk-buy scheme had quoted us $12K for a lesser quality system.

Overall very happy we used your service and not the "door-knockers"...!!!

Velocity Solar offers quality PV systems that are installed to a high standard at a competitive price Communication was great, once the install date was planned they arrived on time and on the date promised. Brad, Travers and Denise were all great to deal with, replying to emails and answering any questions I had. Once the install was complete, I received an information pack with all the details about the system installed, maintenance and a guide as to what happens in the following weeks regarding Feed-In/Powercor/My Energy Retailer. The quality of the install was to a high standard with great workmanship.I would highly recommend to anyone else seeking a quality PV system. Show additional information

The only stumbling block was the Vic Gov. They got buried by the uptake applications for the rebate They were just not prepared for the number of people applying. Show additional information
Fantastic team for installation. Started at 8 am and gone by 2.30 pm! They worked really well and were very cheerful and polite.
The inspection took a while to come through. And it’s been a month and I’m still waiting for my energy retailer to get the paper work sorted. That means I’m still not getting paid for all the electricity being generated and going back into the grid.
Thanks Finn and your team. I’m glad I’ve got the system up and running.

Very hard to choose between Velocity Solar and Geelong Solar. Price was similar. Information from both companies was great and they both answered all my questions. Now waiting for the inspection and the interaction with the retailer companies for the best price part!

I had a really great experience with Velocity Solar. Brad and his team were very informative from start to end. I received a top quality system for a great price and I had many quotes from other solar dealers. Velocity Solar were very professional and it was a pleasure doing business with them. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a serious solar system with great back up from their team. Show additional information

Brad Ott (Owner) is a down to earth, no bull type of sales person, who lets you know exactly what can and can't be done. He tells you he is the owner and he has a team that will install the system. We found Brad to be very knowledgable, helpful and cost competitive. Would recommend him. Show additional information
The entire process was quick efficient and hassle free I would certainly recommend Velocity Solar to any prospective purchaser Show additional information
A lot of information to sort through. I felt the other 2 were very helpful but I didn't think their panels/inverters may have been top quality. ( after reading your website reviews) Velocity Solar were installing the better range of panels/inverters. I think Velocity may have been one of YOUR quotes. Can't remember as I received 7 different quotes all up and a lot of information I had to process. Your website contained a lot of good information.
Thank You Bruce haynes

With the help of we felt well equipped to ask the right questions to get what was right for us. It was a tough choice in the end as we had 2 companies that were both really great in our opinion (the 3rd company 'Specialised Solar Solutions' didn't get back to us). We went with the one that had the better quality Inverter at a good price. We were very happy with the service provided, the customer service was excellent throughout the whole process and even post installation. We also appreciated that the owner of the company was part of the install and set up. We are very happy with Velocity Solar and excited to be using our solar energy now. We would highly recommend their services. Show additional information

Brad Otte has given me the best customer service experience in many a long year. From sales, installation, follow up and queries, the process was flawless.
Installation was done in one day!!
After installation, he sat with me and explained the whole system (in my language) with much patience.
Several weeks later my Internet was upgraded to cable and the system needed to be re configured. Brad was amazingly generous with his time and did it for free. Not being IT savey this was a godsend.
Would I recommend Velocity Solar to friends, relatives and anyone looking at solar installation?.....Hell Yes.
Brad is one of the most personable business people i have met in a long time and I love my solar system.
