Great solar system installed by a professional team
Solargain gave good advice about why type of system to install. The whole process was smooth. The system seems to be performing well, better than the yield estimates they included.
Incorrect estimation of plant output
Initially I was having a very good experience but when I finalised my installation with Solargain guys I realised that there is a shadow problem on my roof which was NOT told to me by your sales agent at the start. When I asked him about it, he said yes there is a shadow problem on your roof and I factored it in our estimation of yearly output from your system. Then I asked him again by sending the copy of quote that is it really true that you have factored in the loss due to shadow? When I asked this question over email he flipped and said, no...we have not, there will be additional 5% loss. Since I finaliased the installation I did not change it and continued with those guys. Now actually after using this system for 4+ months what I am getting from my plant is even lesser, so loss is more than 5%. This is not right and company like Solargain should have proper tools and equipment to estimate the plant output as close as possible so that customers can make the right decisions. I even asked this agent to your "Fisheye" but he said we don't use that. Very bad experience on this front. You have high prices for your system, you don't negotiate the price much on the promise of quality but at the very beginning you don't give right information and service
I think having solar power is great now to get the most out of solar panels and why I put it off so long
Installation team did Excellent job Solar panels and inverter went in pretty quick had no issues whatsoever with sales or installation of our system all went like clockwork output on the day as soon as it was hooked up was at maximum
Product, service and responses all fantastic.
We had the ISTORE hot water installed after having solar panels installed about a year and a half ago. All experiences have been great. Follow ups, installation, friendly installers who were helpful. Products are good quality and do what they say.
Start to Finish great job
From the first enquiry to the installation a great job and easy to deal with and explained everything perfectly and answered all my questions. So glad we went with Solargain

Great service and price
Thank you James(a true professional)for helping us to get our solar system quote and finding a system best suited to our needs and we're very happy with our solargain service we can't wait until system is installed so we can see how much we will be saving
BEST DECISION EVER
Everything went smoothly from quote to installation on our new IStore water heat pump.
They came in and installed everything without any issues. They configured the best settings for the heat pump. Very thorough. Very professional.
They even got rid of my old 17 year old electric water heater.
Process of two parts. Good then bad.
The initial process was fantastic. The customer service representative was attentive and answered my questions in a timely manner. Sadly for us, it was a 7 month delay for installation because of the lockdown in Victoria. I would recommend Solargain for all your solar power requirements. Their knowledge is very solid and helpful.
I deducted two stars because of the following. Post installation (installation completed 17/01/21) has been a major disappointment to say the least. The process of dealing with Solargain, the installer, our electrici...
Easy and simple process
This was a simple and easy process from. Start to finish. From the sales person to the installers. So far I am happy with the process and the results of the Solargain process. Solargain installed a 6.6 KWh Huawei Inverter system I am happy with the results of the system. The Huawei app is not that good but it is not a true reflection of the Solargain or Inverter process.

SolarGain... 3 years on
System has performed flawlessly since install. The installers did a great job of removing the old system and replacing it with a newer one (my previous install was much smaller and it was time to upgrade). The install was very neat and the installers were very professional.
I quickly set up my system to record on PVOutput, so if you're interested in its performance since install, you can find it at https://www.pvoutput.org/intraday.jsp?id=60929&sid=54365
Pleased with Solargain HW system.
I had a Solargain Ground Mount 315L system with twin panels installed to replace a defunct (6-years old!) Heat Pump system. The Solargain was installed November 2020, allowing a full electricity billing period before commenting. I live in Redland City, Queensland.
(1) The quoting process was quick and easy - thanks Matt. The quote was highly competitive compared to competitor's offerings for a similar solar combo, and compared favourably with a "like-for-like" heat pump.
(2) The installation on the day was painless and professional and the ...
Very pleased with the system.
Panel installation went very well. Installers demonstrated how to use the App after panels had been installed. Everything is operating as was explained at the beginning of the process. No issues at all.

Caution is advised!
Had issues with FRONIUS Galvo 2 had Solar gain tech come out and with assistance from Fronius seems to have rectified system. However I have LOST a lot in rebates because of this issue and requested restitution of such and was told QUOTE"Just emailing in response to your recent txt RE the lost rebates you would like to claim from us.
I have reviewed your portal and the technicians notes and due to this being a manufacturer fault rather than an error of Solargain or the overall installation of the system, we would at this stage not be compensat...ing for the loss of rebates. You are most welcome to contact Fronius directly on 03 8340 2910 and seek reimbursement from them directly if you wish and this will be up to their discretion. So literally NOT our PROBLEM see the manufacturer WHOM I Quote also: Dear Peter, Thank you for contacting Fronius Australia regarding compensation for low production of your solar system.
Hot Water Team of Solargain
Our Solar Hot water was leaking on the roof and needed replacing immediately. The Hot Water Team disconnected the Hot Water roof system and stopped the leak - lent us a Water Heater till they could install an Istore Hot Water System. Removed and took away the old Hot Water Roof System. Very Professional and helpful. Excellent Service. Very Happy with outcome. Thank you Hot Water Team.
Solargains procedures from quotations, installation and final handover certification were without fault & we are extremly happy with the Solar panel system we had installed including the istore hot water system
Best Hot water solution
They were very good. This was a old house so it had electrical problems. They found solutiuons for every problem.
The professional team lent us a make do water heater till they could install the solar water heater. Such a polite attitude. And left no mess.
Professional and listens to the customer
I installed a 6.6kW module/5kW inverter PV system, with an IStore 270L heat pump hotwater system from Solargain. I'm happy to say that it has exceeded my expectations, with the system providing all of the hot water that we need, only using solar energy. And the PV system is running flawlessly. Installation of the system was quick, efficient and very professional. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to move to powering their home from solar energy!
SG installed my 3500W system in 2014 and estimated annual generation from the array as 5371W. It has been within 2% of that every year showing (A ) they use very good software to predict the output and (B) they are very honest at the point of sales .
At 6 yrs the Fronius Inverter failed and SG handled the complete warranty claim with Fronius for me and replaced the Inverter.
The latest software caused messages on the display which I had never seen before but SG technicians came, adjusted the system and explained the latest GDPR software imposed by Western Power Regulations means the latest Inverters work differently from earlier models.
SG are very professional and capable Company and their staff are courteous and helpful throughout .
More than a decade of being satisfied
We first used Solargain 10 years ago for our initial solar power system and were very satisfied. When minor issues arose they were quick to respond. We followed this with a Solargain hot water system and again were very pleased with the service and back up. We are very satisfied with our new solar power system which includes a battery. Cannot express what a relief it is to have a business of this caliber to fall back on for such a significant investment of our hard earn money.
The Ease of Installation to Connection to sitting back and watching it all happen
I started engaging with Tom Liston from Solargain sometime ago and from that moment to the finish line and beyond SolarGain and Tom have been the best at making my life easy. The customer experience has been 10 out of 10. Our busy lives are full of clashes and meetings, we want folks just like SolarGain to make our investments easier.
Solar Hot Water. Top service and quality from Solargain!
Fast and simple process to purchase our system with great communication from Solargain and tips to save even more money from our system.
We have a 6.6kw solar install with Solargain next week also. Can't recommend enough.
Pricing is more than reasonable with great guarantee.
The customer service support is terrible
That company has the worst customer service support. After 2 weeks of having the rebate and the loan approved. I haven't received any call to arrange the installation and when I call them the excuse is that they are busy because of Covid. If you want solar panels from this company you have to beg them.
I made the right choice.
I’m very pleased how SolarGain completed my solar to solar HWS installation. Their website information was comprehensive so I didn’t have many questions, but any I had were answered promptly. The plumbers were efficient and explained how it worked when they finished. The units look good and are neatly installed.
The system works well; so far electricity backup is switched off and hasn’t been
In my opinion I had a 5 star experience.
