Kit Yip from VictoriaI received a recommendation from Essential Solar from my Cousin. Ever since I got in touch with Mr Vipul, he's helped me along the way entirely through assisting me with questions about the solar process, obtaining the government rebate and dealing with the installers. Once that was all done, it is a long waiting process but Essential Solar will stick with you through thick and thin. I received further help from Ms Jessica K and Ms Hayley in regards to the installation process and also explanation of how the Fronius device woks (look, you pay for the simple model, you get the simple app - once batteries come out to be cheaper, then the Fronius app starts to make sense) Installation from their installers was also a breeze - very efficient, very prompt and friendly. They even helped me tell which of my roof tiles were damaged by hail and advised me how to repair them and replace them. I've gone up to the roof myself after their installation and it looks beautiful! When there was an issue with the floor heating and the explanation behind it, and his manager, Mr David B were very informative and helped me to explain the entire process on how to utilise my solar better and making sure I could get the best rebate from it when the sun was high and bright. Payment for the process was super easy and fit to our needs. Essential Solar also provided very accurate time waiting periods to ensure that you understand when and how to take the best advantage of the system. Overall, I'D RECOMMEND THEM for your entire solar needs - very seamless and helped me put my stress to ease. PS: Essential Solar are great, but BE PATIENT with the whole process - the majority of the wait is from your electricity supplier and distributor to change the metering and whatnot (overall process was about three months including COVID-19)

Mark Biondo from VictoriaEssential Solar were great to deal with! We got quotes from 4 different companies, and only two of them actually came to my home to inspect, discuss and give me a quote. They provided great material. Ended up with a 6.6 kw system, consisting of a Fronius inverter, Fronius smart meter and 21 Longi Solar panels. Tam and Jessica were always prompt in replying to my questions and the installers did a great job on the day. So far, no problems encountered. Would use them in a heart beat.

Tim Heaths from VictoriaOur Solar system purchased from ES was installed late in June 2018. That part was an excellent process from initial consultation to completion. The last part - a final inspection by the CEC, activating the grid metering carried out by the Transmission / Line service provider with my input for that facilitated by the ES Office - took as it did then 11 days to process after installation. The sales team I first approached provided answers to my questions (we had a different firm install a 3kW system on my previous house in NSW in 2010 that was a Gross FIT connection; this time I had to understand the economics of Nett FIT solar in Victoria). The technical sales advice and design of a 5kW system with North and West strings that was installed has proved to be excellent - great performance from the panels (cool climate 3357), the Inverter combined with a Datalogger (two-way metering) provides real-time data that is very accessible, and regular reports are available from Fronius that provide a daily record of the data to save permanently. Perhaps not the least expensive 5kW system (compared to costs available from online sources only) however good communication from the ES staff I interacted with and the comprehensive site analysis has resulted in a good experience and a great system. Our accessible single story roof was suitable for two strings of panels allowing them to design the orientation for optimum generation with the least panels to suit our requirements and after 5 months we are very pleased with the result. Thank you Essential Solar!

N C Fernando from VictoriaWe have ended up getting 3 systems from Essential Solar so far (1 commercial 15kw, and 2 residential 9.5kw and 5kw) Their service has been nothing but outstanding and a pleasure to deal with. Right from the Sales team Paul, to the Ladies in admin, the follow up, and professional installers. No horror stories here, anything but. End of the day, proof in the pudding, the systems themselves have been performing far more than we were told. I'm glad we decided to go with Essential and will continue for 2-3 more systems. Thanks to all at Essential for making this an easy experience.

Nguyen Huu Nhut Anthony from VictoriaEssential Solar has done a great job in several crucial aspects: 1. Panel Layout Design: which allows us to capture the sunlight in the afternoon. 2. High-quality Products: were advised to us (we chose SunPower panels & Fronius for our house). 3. Installation Appointment: was informed promptly and done ontime as scheduled 4. Rebate Process: was properly managed and sent to us in advance with valuable advices to apply for the Gov Rebate. 5. After-sale service (after the payment was made): is excellent and the customer service team (especially Hayley Mitchell) have always been there whenever we need for technical questions (related to the online Solar Web) or rebate enquiry. We highly recommend this service for your consideration.

Karen Potts from VictoriaAfter researching solar systems and components for our home for just under 4 weeks, and getting 4 quotes, we decided on Essential Solar to install our 5kw system. They were by no means the cheapest but are very competitive. What made our minds up to choose Essential Solar was the excellent customer service and product knowledge provided by Ray Bout at our face to face meeting - and the high quality components Essential Solar use. He explained every detail carefully to us so we had a full understanding of the products they would be installing. After we signed on the dotted line we were then placed in the hands of the office staff, mainly Rebecca McLeod, who communicated with us regularly keeping us up to date on the process and progress of our install. The install team turned up promptly on the scheduled day (even a bit before their appointment time) and worked efficiently and effectively getting our panels up and operational in just over 1/2 a day. They were polite, communicative and informative on all they were doing when approached. We had a small hiccup a few hours after they left and one of the team members came straight back to rectify it. The processing of our paperwork so that we could get up and running was efficient and, where we were told that we may not be able to use our solar for 3-4 weeks (as the next steps were dependent on outside sources) we were benefiting from our system in just 2 weeks. Along the way, and since we have started using our system, we have had cause to contact the office team for some assistance and each and every time our query was handled promptly and efficiently at the time of the call. We cannot recommend Essential Solar highly enough and trust that if you choose them, you will get the same efficient, courteous and professional service that we have experienced. Thanks Essential Solar for making this purchase a seam free and stress free process for us.

Robert Lotric from VictoriaI received a very professional and trouble free service from Essential Solar from start to finish. The Technical Sales Advisor Ray Bout was knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with, but he went beyond that and actively recorded and responded to the particular challenges of the installation that I was concerned needed addressing. This was then backed up by General Manager David Bruce who discussed the installation plan with me in detail so that I was assured that we were all on the same page. This ensured that the installation by Cathal and his team was efficient, to my expectations and went without a hitch. All the while, I received great customer service from Jessica and Rebecca who made sure I was up to date with valuable information and sent me all the forms etc. Overall, I had a very positive experience.
