Andrew and the team are awesome and highly recommended. I was very skeptical about the solar industry and was cautious with who I chose to assure I would be getting the best service and product from someone that will be around in years to come to assist and warrant any issues that may occur. Andrew went above and beyond to assist me quickly and the process was smooth with a better and quicker result then expected. Can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you again!read more

When I was reviewing quotes, I was surprised how wide the price range was, some more than double others. However I was looking for a quality inverter and panels that will maximize the power generation trouble free. Similarly, the installation quality was equally important considering the equipment will be on the roof for 20yrs or more. Andrew presented good information and you are doing well if you can keep up with his knowledge on the matter. Andrew was also personally involved with the installation on the day and lead the project. He was also the only one that encouraged me so using a smart meter that will allow you to educate your household on your generation versus useage at any given time to the exact kilowattSo for me it made sense not to follow the lowest price, but obtain quality equipment, installation piece of mind and knowledge.read more

Andrew, just want to say thank you for an excellent experience. I did my homework by talking to three friends who I didn't know had you install their Solar systems and they all spoke very highly of your workmanship. It's evident solar as much a passion as it is your business. I've had very few folks do work on my house that have been as straightforward and honest! Thanks again.read more

Great Service experience: Solar Bank installed a system about 18 months ago. Very happy. Recently some electrical work was carried out on our pool filter/ pump. What ever they did not only blew up all my pool electrics but I also noticed they somehow stuffed up our solar system. As a result I called SolarBank to see if they could help. The next morning a technician came out to see what the problem was. They replaced the breaker which did not solve the problem. They then placed a call with Fronius for a replacement unit. Replacement arrived a few days later. Technician returned the next morning to install. All up a working in less then a week. All under warranty. A follow-up call to make sure everything was working. Solarbank stepped up to help when something when wrong. A great support experience. (The pool / filter still not working and they will not come out for another week.) Well Done SolarBank team.read more

I don't usually do reviews but this time I wish to record Solarbank's and Andrew's exceptional perfromance in the installation of a 12.5 KW system which included micro inverters.After choosing three possible suppliers for quotes from the CEC list of approved installers, I settled on Solarbank as the most professional of the group.Andrew gave me an installation date at least 5 weeks prior to the day which he kept to. His team were spot on and left the premises as clean as when they arrived. Andrew's follow up and document handling has also been first class.Needless to say I am a happy customer..read more

When attention to detail matters

Solarbank offers our residential customers competitive pricing, a quality installation and high-grade products. We visit your home, conduct an onsite assessment and guide you through the whole installation process. We’re proud to have some of the most experienced and enthusiastic installers in the solar energy industry delivering outstanding workmanship and design.

Our 6 Point Installation Quality Check includes:

1. Cavity versus external conduit

When a customer trusts in us to install a solar power system at their home or business we take it seriously and are mindful of the importance of maintaining the aesthetics of the premises. We will always do our best to minimise the use of external conduit for running cables to the inverter and meter board. In most cases we are able to install systems with little or no external conduit making for a very attractive installation. For some buildings this is not possible due to factors such as insulation in the walls. In these cases we will seek to run conduit behind drainpipes or other ducts to ensure a tidy look.

2. Tile Grinding

The Clean Energy Council installation guidelines require tile grinding. Tile grinding is critical when installing on a tile roof to ensure that the tile itself is not resting on the stainless steel bracket, which is fitted to mount the solar rails. If the tile is resting on this bracket there is a strong chance the tile will crack over time, potentially leading to water leaking into the roof. We care about your property and we make sure there is no chance tiles can crack or leak in the future.

3. Rooftop isolator protection

Australian Standards require solar power systems to have isolators (switches) on the roof, at the inverter and in the switchboard. This applies to both DC and AC systems. Rooftop isolators have been the source of many solar system failures primarily due to water ingress into the switch after it has deteriorated in the sun. At Solarbank we only use IMO DC isolators, which are made in Austria and in our opinion are one of the best available. In addition to using the highest quality isolators we also install all rooftop isolators with a metal housing to shade the isolator and limit the exposure to the harsh Australian elements.

4. String line leveling of rails

Nothing looks worse on a home than an unlevelled solar array on the roof. We notice them (even if others don’t). To ensure your solar panels are level we take measurements between the roof and the rail at either end then string line across the rail and then make adjustments to counter any bows in the roof (most roofs have a bow).

5. Roof penetrations

Australian Standards require the use of a Dektite® (or similar) gland for the cable entry through the roof. Solarbank uses full sized genuine Dektite® flashings to ensure a guaranteed watertight cable entry.
  • solar power installation

6. Cable fixings

Australian Standards require that no cables be hanging under the solar panels and be in contact with the roof. Solarbank uses a combination of stainless steel cable ties and cable clips to fix all cabling to the panels and rails, which means no contact with the roof for the life of the system.
