Dr Alison Booth (Veterinarian and business partner of Semaphore Veterinary Surgery) – “We installed a Sol Energy System in May 2014. Prior to installation, Sol Energy presented us with a thorough feasibility analysis based on our usage profile, hours of operation, and billing data that we supplied. 

A detailed proposal was given to us to show us how we could maximise savings associated with solar panel installation. The information we received was comprehensive and Sol Energy’s staff were very happy to spend time with us to go through the details of the system prior to installation. We thought the service was very professional. 

The install was done without interruption to our business and was of a high quality.

We opted for a 10 kW system and have never looked back. We have reduced the yearly cost of electricity of the site by about 65%. We are on track to pay for the system within 4-5 years. 

 For us, it was a no-brainer. We own the site and have a mature business that we intend to be still running in 10-15 years time. The ongoing maintenance costs are minimal and the system comes with a long warranty and good after sales service.

 I can thoroughly recommend Sol Energy to any business committed to saving money and reducing their carbon footprint”.

Petrea and Andrew Stacey  – “Simon provided us with a detailed quote and explained everything in a clear and concise manner. He was not pushy or a “salesman”, but instead gave us all the information we needed, an option that would meet our needs, and answered all of our questions. Both Simon’s knowledge and customer service were exceptional. We are extremely satisfied with the result of having our solar panels in place. We highly recommend Sol Energy and will definitely use their services again in the future. Installation went smoothly. No problems to date. Very knowledgeable and honest. Great customer service – friendly and professional. Provided follow up”.

Nathan Judd – “Out of the 3 quotes we obtained you were the only person who examined and measured out roof.  This gave us confidence in your professionalism. You communicated sensibly and pitched at a good level, and never created any pressure to seal the deal”.

Mark Fonz Ferdinands – “I highly recommend Simon McKay from Sol Energy. He is an expert in solar energy and “The Go To Person” when it comes to saving us money on our energy requirements! Sol Energy provides a holistic approach to energy system solutions focusing on delivering the most cost effective, sustainable outcome to achieve low carbon energy requirements. You should have a coffee with him …call him (on his private number 0400 305 412) and tell him Fonz from Cinderellas (that’s me) said he would shout the caffeines! I’d also like to mention that Simon is also a deadset legend!”

Laurie & Bev Baldacchino – We thought Simon conducted himself in a very professional manner.  We were very happy with the finished product. The installation of the solar panels & all the electrical work was of the highest quality.  He has always been very helpful with any questions we ever needed to be answered & would recommend the Sol Energy Company to anyone thinking of having solar panels installed. 

Marilyn and Tony Pederick –Excellent service, Prompt attention to any query and rectification. I would recommend Sol Energy to anyone who want to avail themselves of their service”.

Ben Michalik (Aug/2018)

“The team at Sol Energy were very professional and had extensive knowledge of multiple solar solutions. Their explanations were not only factual and technical but also described in plain English for me to understand. There was no question too difficult for them to answer and they were more than happy to spend long lengths of time to ensure I was comfortable and understood the answer. Their installation team was polite and professional with a brilliant install. Eight months past, I am more than happy with the solar solution and couldn’t have asked or expected anything else. Thanks to the team at Sol Energy.”


Sol Energy is very excited to become an Authorised Sonnen Partner with Service and Installation certification.
