Roland was are Sales guy and answered all my questions and was also helpful and explained it all in detail. Likes a joke so had me lauging which made me more relaxed. The rest of the Team have been more then helpful small issue came up and they dealt with it ASAP no hesitations. Recommended this company all the way. 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

Great Customer Service I spoke With Amity So helpful Eased my Concerns about a few things Took her time with me And never once made me feel like i was just a $ Symbol I was treated like a Customer and can't recommend her enough to. Paul was just as good Took his time with me Explained it all in detail and showed us Our roof and how are Panels will look Which I thought was great. Cannot recommend Westside as a whole enough I have great Confidence that if anything was to go wrong I will be helped. 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

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

Installation scheduled for next week.
Details of our experience sent via earlier email a few week ago.

Still waiting to get smart meter installed Show additional information
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
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
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.

The Sales Person was very good at explaining what would happen and when. All the Contractors were very Professional and new what they were about. Everything is working well and we were able to extend the Warranty from 5 years to 10 years for no extra cost. My only concern was that the Electrician who set up the WiFi Controller Solar Web and my iPhone App has failed and I can no longer Monitor the generation of Solar Energy that the Solar Panels are Supplying.

Hi David, Thanks for the positive review. We are glad you experienced our Westside advantage and will now continue to have a positive solar experience. We are disappointed to hear you are experiencing issues with your Solar Web and iPhone connection. As you are aware we are on the case with the inverter manufacturer to rectify this problem on your behalf. Stay tuned for some resolutions. Show additional information
The customer service Westside Energy offer is outstanding. From the first phone call, to the sales team, and the contractor that did the pre inspection to the install was Awesome.

Westside was easy to get on with. Steve (sales) was great. Installation happened very quickly. We are just having issues getting our meter changed which is the fault of Origin.
