Not a question. Just wanted to say how pleased we were with our first power bill following installation. Must admit I was hesitant to open it – hoping we had made the right decision to go solar. Very happy to see our bill had dropped by great amount – even with extra aircon use! Love Solar Switch!
Vicki Robinson, Heathcote
Ray was really impressed by the team and the finished job. He says that he will definitely recommend your company. Please feel free to share with the install crew & thank them from me for the great work they’re obviously doing. Have a great weekend!

“I would like to thank the SolarSwitch team for the professional approach to the project from the initial visit to the completion of the installation. Their behaviour, attitude and safety orientation while on site was excellent and the work was completed without an incident. The performance of the panels, generating up to 138kWh per day, has exceeded our expectations and really supports investing in high quality equipment.”
Paul Anscombe, Area Director – Central Region (NSW & NZ), Cummins South Pacific
“To manage rising power costs our club saw solar power as a logical direction. We engaged SolarSwitch to install the 100kw system. From day one their communication was clear and professional, keeping us updated throughout. The total process was smooth and co-ordinated with our operational needs. We now look forward to lots of sunny days.”
Alan Middleton, General Manager of Blacktown RSL
I would like to pass on my appreciation for a job well done by your installlers Phil and Ryan who installed my solar system last week.
Everything went perfectly and the guys did an excellent job, on what turned out to be a very hot day.
I would certainly recommend Solar Switch in future.
K Rodway, Kirrawee, NSW
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank your company for the professional, efficient and timely installation of the 6kW solar electricity system at our school.
Your staff patiently guided us step by step through the National Solar Schools grant application process right through to installation.
SolarSwitch’s office staff and installers were all a pleasure to deal with.
We would not hesitate to recommend your company to any school wanting to have a solar electricity system installed.”
Yasuhiro Shimmi, Principal, Sydney Japanese School
“This is to certify that St Paul’s Grammer School has gone solar thanks to SolarSwitch and the federal government’s National Solar Schools Program. The scheme offers each primary and secondary school in Australia $55,000 to install energy saving systems like solar electricity. As we have more than 1,000 students we were able to secure a double grant of $110,000.00. SolarSwitch has installed an 11.88kW solar electricity system, consisting of 66 X 180W monocrystalline solar panels, at the school which will produce around 18,000kWh per year helping to reduce the schools energy bills and carbon footprint.
We found SolarSwitch excellent to deal with. They were efficient and speedy in response to our needs, knowledgeable and technically proficient, always helpful and courteous, and professional in every way. We would welcome any further inquiries about their work and would be happy to show any inquirer the work they have done.”
Ken Goodlet, Executive Assistant to the Principal
Our panels etc have been installed. Your installers were very good. They kept us informed throughout the installation and clarified any issues with us. Highly recommended.
Mrs Houlihan, Carindale, QLD
Hi, I just wish to send a big thank you to all the team at SolarSwitch. The installer attended my place at BYWONG today and did a great job. They were punctual,accommodating and addressed all my questions. With installation occurring within 4 weeks of order at such a busy time of year is a credit to your team. I have to say that the whole process of getting solar installed has been pain free thanks to the whole team at SolarSwitch. Congratulations.
Mr Nelson, Bywong, ACT
Would you pass my thanking to the electrician who came to my house and fixed my hot water yesterday morning (27/04/12). His works were excellent and perfect. Your company is a perfect team which serves to the society with an enthusiastic and supporting manners whenever the customers need your help. I always believe that your team has built a very good trust to customers… so one more time i would like to to say thank you including your team very much and with a special gratitude from me.
K Nguyen, Edensor Park, NSW
All the staff at SolarSwitch I have dealt with have provided excellent customer service. Kyra has been exceptional in her communication with me and always responds quickly to my correspondence. Your area representative Gary was most helpful with the initial consult and your installers were excellent and professional.
I have recommended you highly to my fellow Officers and friends and I look forward to purchases in the future.
Thanks again for all your help,
L Hart, Riverstone, NSW
I have been remiss in not expressing our satisfaction for the installation of our solar PV system at the above address but an inspection of our system by Ausgrid today has prompted me to rectify this. The Ausgrid inspectors found our system to be safe and had been installed to meet all the current requirements.
Our satisfaction with Solar Switch began with the quotation for our system by Joseph Oliveri who listened to our requirements, presented a range of options and suggestions and then provided us with a competitive quotation.
Our system was efficiently intalled by your sub-contractor, Gavin Smith of Greenscope Energy Solutions, on March 10th 2011 and despite the warning of an expected delay your level 2 electrician did the switchboard meter change eight days later on March 18th.
Our satisfaction with your service continues to grow with time as the following occurs:-
1. The predicted output from our system appears to be on track in a period of lower solar intensity.
2. When our first electricity account, after installation, arrived we received the expected rebate for the power returned to the grid. This confirmed that Solar Switch had efficiently processed all the paperwork necessary to receive a solar rebate and meet the requirements of authorities.
3. The inspection by Ausgrid today confirms the quality of workmanship which your company and its sub-contractors deliver.
I take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to your company, its staff and sub-contractors for a job well done and to our complete satisfaction. I would have complete confidence in recommending your company to others.
I wish your company continued success as the solar industry is plagued with government mismanagement and unscrupulous installers.
William J Crawford, Padstow, NSW
Dear Solar Switch,
Just a quick email to say ‘thanks” for the $100 coles/myer referral voucher from Solar Switch.
It is very pleasing to see a solar company keep its promise when so many other companies in the business are getting a bad press. Not only have you provided the vouchers for the reference of a new customer the installation including dealing with ACTEW and the ACT government went without a hitch. The installer was particularly helpful.
Once again thank you
Andy Hrast, Duffy, ACT
To whom it may concern,
I am writing you this email as I wish to commend your ‘workers’ at Solar Switch. I had a Solar Switch solar panel installation on Tuesday 19th April 2011, at my home address at Jannali.
Firstly, I became involved in researching solar power after watching segments on television and became ‘aware’ of the Government Rebates. I began my own research on this ‘hot’ topic via the internet and was surprised of the amount of information and the amount of companies who can supply this product. It was actually overwhelming. Who is going to give me the ‘right advice’???
I noticed several of the companies were interstate however, this is not ‘my style’ of dealing with ‘tradies’ via the internet or telephone. Yeah sure I may have got a better price, but and this is a BIG BUT, would have I got the BEST PRODUCT for this service. I decided to deal with a company who has a showroom and salesperson. I had read several good comments also in ‘forum style’ on the internet about Solar Switch. So that’s how I got to choose your company.
After attending your showroom and making an appointment, I met your Area Manager, Joe OLIVERI who attended my house and was very helpful in all the information that I needed and explained everything about Solar power to me. Anyway, I decided on a 3KW system. Then today, (19/4/11) I met two of your installers, Tim and young Mitch. They turned up on time and got stuck into the work straight away. From my observation of these two installers they did a ‘top notch’ professional installation. I believe Tim installed my system as if it was in his home. No cutting corners here and there. Again, top notch installers.
I cannot speak highly enough of your company, Area Manager and installers. If these guys are a sample of your company, you won’t need luck to make it, as ‘word of mouth’ goes a long way.
Again, thank you very much for all your services provided
Mr Whitaker, Jannali, NSW
Just wanted to say we just got our first electricity bill since installing the solar panels. As we were hoping for, we generated enough power to eliminate from paying anything at all plus be in credit, how good is that. Also I wanted to say thanks for your service, you guys were very professional with everything, including the guys that showed up to install the panels.
Once again thanks very much and I will be recommending SolarSwitch to everyone. Most people I know were waiting to see how happy I was with the system once I get my bill. I am over the moon.
Harry Charilaou, Welding Technician, Lincoln Electric Company, Prestons, NSW
Just received my latest electricity account and, despite all the rain we have had in the Blue Mountains over the last several months, I’m still almost $900 IN CREDIT FOR THE QUARTER!
It’s such a great feeling being carbon-neutral (SolarSwitch installed 42 solar panels) and my guests at Cloudlands love it.
Best wishes and keep up the good work!
Anne Elliott, Owner/Manager, Cloudlands, World Heritage Blue Mountains Australia
I’d just like to say my solar panels were installed today by SolarSwitch and I can’t be happier.
The SolarSwitch team were friendly and competent and were very professional at doing their job.
They explained what they were doing and cleaned up after themselves.
It was no trouble for the solar power installer to spend the time to explain in layman’s terms what I was asking.
Thank you for your hassle free business like handling of the job.
I will ask what solar panels I can add to the existing system down the track when I have the extra finance to do so.
Again, thank you.
Jim Thurgood, Brisbane, QLD
I wanted to thank you for making this whole process of installing my solar energy system such a painless & un-confusing one – there is so much information (AND mis-information) out there that it is virtually impossible to sift one’s way through it all. Thanks for your patience along the way (I think I may have asked you the same 2 questions 4 or 5 times!). At every stage, I was always very comfortable dealing with not only you, but also the installers- you both made it seem that there was nothing that was too hard to do! Also, the installers took particular care to ensure that any exterior cabling was always hidden, this meant there were no unsightly cables (which was a very important detail for us). I also note that the inverter showed that our 3kW system was actually producing over 2.5kW on a semi-overcast day, and it’s not even Spring yet! We’re looking forward to reaping the benefits when the days are longer & sunnier!
Once again, of all the companies I dealt with whilst researching solar PVs, you guys stand out head & shoulders above the rest. I only wish I’d found you sooner – I could have saved myself a lot of anguish & confusion. I will certainly be passing on your details to anybody I speak to about solar energy.
Chris Kondos, Melbourne, VIC
We’re very happy with our solar panels (6 were installed in October 2009 and another 4 in August 2010) and the solar hot water service that was installed in April 2010, all by SolarSwitch.
We’ve been amazed at the cost savings we made over the winter period in particular – for a 5 month period (April to the end of August 2010), our total electricity charges were just over $400 whereas last year, our electricity bill for one quarter in the winter months was over $600.
In the year since we installed our initial solar panels, we’ve clocked up over 2,000kw of energy that has gone back to the grid, and in the past month, 200 kW has been generated by our solar system. Great for the environment and great for us !
H & B Douglas, Camden South, NSW
Dear Solar Switch,
It has been a little over 12 months since we had the solar panels installed and I could not be happier. The highly professional and courteous manner from the office staff to the installers really pleased me. The organisation of the whole process was done for me, including the paperwork for the Government rebate giving me peace of mind. The salesman was very polite and explained everything to me in easy to understand terms. The tradesmen that installed our system were absolutely wonderful. They arrived on time and were very efficient, completing the job in half a day.
Our electricity bills have dropped from an average of $350.00 per quarter (electricity only) to around $130.00 including the gas bill. At this rate the system will pay for itself in only a few short years and will keep paying for itself for many years to come. Whenever I’m talking to my friends about the solar panels, I tell them that it was Solar Switch that did the job and I recommend that they use no other company.
Thanks again Solar Switch
John Pascoe, Ermington, NSW
Dear Solar Switch,
A big thank you to your business and relevant tradespeople who organised and installed the solar system on our house in Capalaba Qld. The whole process from quotation to completion was conducted in a courteous, professional and prompt manor and without fault or incident. Your standard of customer service is excellent and I will certainly not hesitate to recommend the services of SolarSwitch to anyone.
Chris and Chris Wright, Capalaba, QLD
Dear Solar Switch,
We just received our latest electricity bill and considering that we have had the system up and running for only 1 month out of a 3 month billing period, the results are looking quite spectacular. Our daily useage is now listed at 2KWh , down from 9KWh and the bill went from $ 171 down to $74. Not a bad result but we hope the next full bill will show a more complete reflection of the benefits of the system.
