Customer Success Stories
One of the key differences between a residential solar system and a commercial solar system is a commercial system will require a feasibility audit from one of our solar experts. The feasibility audit allows Solar WA to calculate the current energy consumption vs the outputs from the recommended sized solar system to deliver the best return on investment for our customers.
Furthermore, for any solar systems that we install that are above 30kW, we will need to provide Western Power with an in-depth engineering plan. One of the key benefits of Solar WA in this area is our experience with managing many large commercial projects allowing us to take a project from initial plan to completion.
Of the 3 companies sourced from this website, Rhett from Solar WA was the 2nd caller however the 1st to quote onsite. His was the best price from the word go and also came down in price voluntarily to seal the deal. I contacted 2 x other companies and one was the same, the other not even close.
The was a small issue in that all 24 panels were to be installed on both north facing roof aspects, however this was not viable due to roof design and 11 panels were installed on the west aspect as well. Not a big deal simply evens out power output over the day.
Due to the double story construction of the house the inverter cable run to the garage was not able to be achieved so inverter was installed outside above power meter box. They are returning to fit a cover to shield the inverter from the sun.
Installation was almost immediate. Installation was only a few days after submitting paperwork to Western Power.
SOLAR WA was prompt, priced very well, a team of 3 installers on the day, arrived on time, installed in one day. Its the middle of winter and on sunny days averaged 22 k/w and cloudy days 14/kw on a 5k/w fronius inverter and 24 x panels 270w canadian 6.5 k/w ratings.
I can recommend this company.

Thanks to the information made available by Solar WA I was able to go through the process with sufficient confidence that I understood what system would best suit my needs and from reading the various reviews, I had a good idea of what type of inverters and panels were available. Prior to getting quotes I had already decided upon a system that would include a Fronius 5kW inverter and tier one panels. Solar WA provided me with a very competitive quote for the Fronius inverter and JA Solar panels (16 x 320kW). Rhett from Solar WA was very helpful and friendly team who installed the system did an excellent job and were very tidy. They were also happy to answer several questions I had in the following days. Thanks Solar WA for making the process a smooth and stress-free experience.
Thanks very much for your professional service from sales to installation of the solar panel system, I would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends and family.

Rhett was super efficient, the turnaround from signing to having a solar system installed and feeding back to the grid was blindingly fast. The installers were professional and knowledgeable. Early days so hopefully the system serves me well. I have observed 4100w output on a clear winter day which was very impressive.

Rhett made it easy to understand how it all worked, would recommend to anyone looking for solar

Very fast delivery and installation, . I’m overall very happy with it so far. All questions answered straight away and they placed the inverter where I wanted it. 100% happy.

It can be hard to tell what your inverter and panels will be like in the mid range market. There seems to be lots of reviews on the high end gear I went for the Bosh inverter that was being offered I knew it was not top end but the price seemed fair and it looks good and is functioning well. The overall experience was good.

How can I select a reputable solar retailer?
There are three key things you should consider when choosing a reputable solar retailer:
CEC Approved – The Clean Energy Council or CEC is a nonprofit organisation that monitors the use of clean energy industry in Australia. Companies that are approved by the body have proven that they are committed to providing quality services, responsible marketing and sales and follows the best industry practices.
Local Offices – Does the company have an office nearby that you can visit? Believe it or not, there are online solar companies today that don’t have a physical presence in WA. These retailers can be frustrating and hard to deal with especially if something goes wrong. Having a place to visit is important because it gives you an idea of how they run their company.
Established Company – Accredited solar installers are required to undergo retraining every two years that they are on the job. The years a retailer has been in business could be a strong indication of their quality of work.
Is solar power safe?
The answer is YES! Solar panels are designed to withstand all types of weather conditions and don’t leak chemicals or fumes (nor use them as we’re harnessing the sun). However, as electricity is generated through solar panels, inverters and batteries it’s best to exercise the same caution as It you do with normal household electrical sockets and devices.
Regular service and maintenance checks are recommended every 3-6 months to ensure the system is able to run efficiently.
Do solar panels work at night or during cloudy weather?
During cloudy weather, solar panels still generate energy but the amount of power collected might be lower than a bright sunny day.
As solar panels rely on the sun to generate electricity they do not generate power at night. However, to ensure you are able to still use electricity generated by a panel system you will also need to have a battery bank installed which collects and conserves energy each day for you to utilise.
