Westside Energy Solar Reviews

The installers had a very awkward roof to work on and the job experience for them was not pleasant, but they pushed through and made a decent install. They were thorough on on all aspects of the job and cleaned up everything which is unusual for sparkies. Show additional information

Fantastic installation

Reliable installer, price is reasonable, tradies were professional and did a good job, marketing team is excellent, highly recommend
I did not have to do any thing to organise grid connections , they did organise that with Sa power network.

Amazing Company

Wow is all I can say great Company. We started with a call from Amity so nice and so helpful we had a discussion about what I wanted and she went above to follow up a few concerns I had then called me back and took time to explain it all and let me know what would happen next.If you are wanting solar definitely ask for Amity she's amazing. Then Roland what a funny man likes to joke but does his job so well. Took all are concerns and explained everything didn't hurry us was here well over 2 hours and never once hurried us to buy.Rolands the best Sales guy ask for him if you want a happy bubbly guy. Nick was helpful and very professional on the phone told us step by step the procedure Installation guys also great no issues Have no issue referring any of my family or friends ...

Salesperson was new and provided 3 key pieces of information which turned out to be false. After much stress and emailing, and phone calls and a visit to the office I received a refund for the Emberpulse (the salesperson told me that it would work without WiFi - which was incorrect) and an agreement to refund the price of the meter upgrade (the salesperson told me that this was undertaken at no charge which again was incorrect). He also had out of date figures for the feed-in tariff. Very disappointing. The manager apologised and refunded me an additional $100 to make up for all the hassle. Show additional information

Fantastic Company

When i first put in for Solar I thought I would be harrassed by company's for days which I was by company's not even in Adelaide. Westside energy are not like that from my call with Amity who was the nicest person to talk to, she let me rant about being overwhelmed by it all and talked to me about everything for 45 minutes. She treated us like people not a sale she explained step by step what will happen when Roland visited. Well Roland is the most honest down to earth salesman I've ever meet he to explained it in detail and took time with me and my husband .Next was Nick who organised step by step what would happen.Next Installation guys were there no issues cleaned up and then explained it all have referred them to all my friends cannot speak more highly of them.

All I can say is amazing

I cannot rave about this company enough! They were amazing throughout. Roland is the best salesman there ever will be. He explained everything in thorough detail and explained what energy providers would give me the best deal. Next person is Nick once I paid the deposit I got a phone call the following day to set up an installation day which was the following week. The installation guys couldn’t find the place at first but once they did they told me where the panels would go, where the inverter would go, told me to sign and off I went to work no problems, come home and voila solar! Again can’t thank Westside Energy enough, you guys have been amazing and I will highly recommend you to anyone!! Show additional information

Dissapointment and regret

When the salesperson mentioned they use employees not contractors I was surprised. That's pretty rare. It heavily influenced my decision to use them. Only after the work was done did I find out the installers were contractors. Too late for me. The installers barely spoke to me. Ended up putting the system in a different spot from where I wanted it. Left rubbish on the roof and around the property. Didn't explain where and how they would install everything. Then when I took my issues to Westside they couldn't have treated me with more contempt. I just didn't want the same thing to happen to anyone else. But Westside threatened legal action for my payment. Now I don't trust them, the workmanship or the supposed warranties. So I have no idea if they installed what they promised. I'm confident if I have any issues with my system they will avoid dealing with them, as they effectively did with my complaint. Show additional information

Fantastic service & system

The quality of the system & service is outstanding! I have used other systems for my business & home and Westside Energy is by far the best. The prices are reasonable along with the tradespeople & actual system. Cannot rate them any higher. You pay for what you get! Show additional information

Great experience from beginning to end.!

The salesman travelled over 100km to asses my needs and quote. Many others just priced it up over the phone.. The installation was as promised, professional, neat and a great bunch of guys. I am so happy with everything, a rare comment from me in this day and age. Thoroughly reccomend Westside Energy, would use them again in a heart beat. Show additional information
The whole exercise has been stress free thanks to Salesman Paul Mills and the staff at Westside Energy. Also the installers, Endre, Brandon and Johanna, were a pleasure to deal with. They had to work around some very windy and wet weather, but maintained their professionalism at all times.Friendly and trustworthy. So far, so good! Show additional information

We went with Westside energy happy with the system 12 ja solar panels and fronius primo inverter however our energy provider has provided exceptionaly poor service it will be a total of six weeks before a smart meter will be fitted as we need an isolation something we didn’t expect and at this point I can’t comment on how well it works .... Show additional information
your advice was invaluable to compare providers particularly the point of getting assistance to connect to the network. Show additional information
After the sales pitch and signing it was poor customer service: inaccurate assessment at site inspection by sales manager (just checked meter board and used google - now have shade issues) serious communication issues internally and with subcontractor, promises made at sale not met, quality issues with installation, smart meter application delayed then wrong. Documentation still not received. Thought I was paying for quality service but should have gone with a small operator and paid less. Show additional information

Amazing Kind Customer Service Person Amity Helped me through my call. She Was patient with all my questions explained how Westside Work and just chatted away to me and helped me understand Solar a bit more. I would recommend If you want a helpful friendly person to assist you without getting overwhelmed by it all Ask for Amity. Paul Mills was our sales guy and what a champ, Wasn't a pushy Guy which was my concern that it would be to overwhelming for me. He explained everything to me in detail and took his time with me so i understood it all and was more than happy with everything. Amity, Paul and Westside I highly recommend to all my friends and Family. Will update when my systems installed but if this is the great service so far I'm so impressed. Show additional information

Westside Energy I would recommend to anyone in South Australia. From the beginning to the end the salesmen were friendly helpful l& supplied us all the information we needed. We chose the company because it is a well known Adelaide company & after a bad experience with our first choice we are so pleased we went with Westside. Thank you Nick you explained all in detail for us. Show additional information
Brilliant - their knowledge, expertise and quality of service second to none and the fact they've been in the industry for such a long time contributed to the decision of going with Westside. System has been in 3 months now and so far has been running flawlessly - loving the savings :) Show additional information
Westside Energy, in particular their sales man Nick, were fantastic. Everything was explained very clearly and we couldn't be happier with the end result. Show additional information
Very happy with the service, Westside Energy were not the cheapest but we felt very confident with their information and they helped us through every step of the way. Installation has occurred and we are just waiting for our electricity supplier to do their part with the meter and we will be up and running in the next couple of weeks. Show additional information

Westide energy was great. The sales rep explained everything extremely well but their customer service side was a bit lax. Called several times and never got call back, booked in installation but customer service rep never entered it in the system. Show additional information

Not yet installed, we have problem with timbers due to previous white ant damage, which is being repaired. Show additional information
We have not had the system installed yet and could not put NA in the allotted areas. Show additional information
There has been confusion about the need for a
meter upgrade. Information given by Westside was ambiguous and had some difficulty getting info from Origin. Outcome is we don't need an upgrade as have an existing albeit smaller system which is being replaced. I expected installer and Westside to know this.
System is being installed next week so hope all goes well.
Appreciated your help re sorting what from chaff.

Westside came out and actually viewed my property. They talked me through my options and I am happy with the decision I made, especially as I have shading issues. Josh who did the installation was great and really knew his stuff. Looking forward to downloading the App and seeing how it’s all going. Show additional information

Still waiting to get smart meter installed Show additional information
Salesman Steve was a great help because he knew just what I wanted. Paid a deposit and was a little disappointed the install date was cancelled on two occasions after I had taken the time of work to be at home. Install day went smoothly which was a Saturday and is now operating for two days. Rubbish was cleaned up but placed into our log fire bin for us to get rid of. Nice people though and easy to get on with. All in all to date all is well.

Salesman great. Installers efficient and helpful. Good information. Office staff rather disorganised.

System seems to be working really well - this is only one week after installation.
