In addition to its durability, many solar manufacturers back their products with performance guarantees in their warranties.

I wanted Solar and I wanted to save money, who wouldn’t? I spoke to Dan and he explained it all so that I could understand it. His team installed a 3kW system at my home and did a mighty job. As a bonus, they completed all the Energex and Government paperwork. I chose this company as I like the fact that they are Electricians as well as Solar Installers giving me peace of mind that I can call on them should something go wrong in the future. I now also use them for all my electrical work and have always found them very helpful and easy to get along with. I highly recommend Dan and his team to anyone.
We decided to get a Solar System installed on our house. The first step was who to use. After much research we decided to use a locally owned and operated company “Dan the Sparky Man”. On the morning of Saturday 2nd June 2012, right on 8am as promised (even though it was raining) young Luke turned up with a big smile and enthusiasm to match. The installation could not have gone smoother. In what were rather adverse conditions, Luke got it and got the job done with no fuss and best of all, I didn’t have to lift a finger! The whole process was organised for us and I can’t speak highly enough of Luke’s workmanship. What a top Aussie bloke! We would highly recommend Dan the Sparky Man for anyone considering getting Solar installed.
I would just like to let you know of what a terrific job Rhys did this morning installing my new under bench oven and cook top. He proved to be very knowledgeable and managed all areas of the installation at a very professional level. Rhys also was very helpful overall and courteous and it was a pleasure having him in my house. In a nutshell – Rhys is a credit to your company and a shining example of what a terrific service person should be like. Please thank him from me again.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank Dan and team for the amazing work they have completed at our home in Burleigh Waters. They recently installed a 3kW Solar System for us and we couldn’t be happier. We found Dan to be very knowledgeable about his products and his explanation of how the process worked was very clear and easy to understand. He took the time to explain what government rebates were available, what savings we could expect on our electricity bills and even how to interpret the readings on our Inverter once it was installed. Our last electricity bill was $900 for the quarter, but since we have had the Solar installed, this quarter we received a $40 credit! A great job at an affordable price. Thanks Dan and team for allowing us to open our Electricity bills without fainting!
