It is rare that for me to post reviews, but in this instance, I feel I must. The experience I have had, from start to finish, with Circuit Alert, has been completely outstanding and well surpassed any expectations I previously held regarding the mediocrity and customer focussed service that can be lacking in our world. Circuit Alert has been a complete breath of fresh air, restoring my faith in always putting their customer first. Moreover, the expertise of the team is exemplary! I always felt in complete control over what product I should choose. The advice and guidance were clearly based on outstanding industry knowledge. The system I had installed is perfect for us and we are thrilled with the results we are achieving – why didn’t we do this years ago? The installation team was brilliant! Reliable, punctual, courteous, and completely professional. Perhaps the overriding factor for me is Circuit Alert’s proven commitment to looking after their customers post-sale and installation. This is quite remarkable. The care I continue to receive from Circuit Alert, even though my solar system is perfect, is outstanding. Just the little emails I receive to ask if I need help with navigating the solar tariff landscape and providers or just checking in to see how the benefits are working for us. Circuit Alert has completely restored my faith in traditional customer focussed outcomes with a deep sincere passion for us, the client, coming first. I cannot thank them enough!

Circuit Alert were amazing! They were the only company that came to my property to quote, and did so within a day or so. And they were very patient & understanding with me while I was trying to make my final decision. I didn’t feel pressured at all & they understood the whole solar process can feel quite overwhelming. Once I’d decided to go ahead with them, they were extremely professional & organised. Their installation team were fantastic and were very patient explaining everything. Their follow up has also been very impressive, and they were on site the same day when I contacted them with a minor startup query. I can’t recommend them enough and feel I’m in very good hands going forward with them.

Martin, Richard, Lisa and the crew were absolutely exception in the entire process, price, customer service and going beyond what I expected. I had quote a number of solar business quote. All in the area are fantastic – however Circuit Alert stood out. The team were super friendly with a “anything is possible” attitude and they were willing to go all the way to help with my complex install. Nothing was too hard. Their follow service was also fantastic. I would highly recommend Circuit Alert!

Installed 10/2/21I found Circuit Alter via a reference from Solarquotes.com.au. Impressively, Lachlan was available to come see me the same day and we sat for about an hour or more looking through the various location of where the panels would be best suited and what size of system would be right for me too ( this is very personal , so I appreciated the expert tips he provided)In terms of a quote, it was very competitive ( not Arise Solar lows & its associated authenticity problems) for a reputable company and the details were easy to followIn terms of installation, I chose to work with their sub-contractors ( Lee and Justin) – (I’m told these guys used to work for Circuit Alert and now run their own business ) – They were absolutely phenomenal – we encountered some building structural queries and Lee was able to real world assess other options for the panel locations – this made a world of differenceThe quality of the finished job was met to my high standards and the installers were super professional and friendlyThe admin team at Circuit Alert ( Lisa) was so helpful that she was even able to provide some unbiased advise on a sizing option that I had !Overall – Highly recommend Circuit Alert but also encourage you to make your own decision :)

In the course of researching options to upgrade our solar system at the Nambour Tennis Club we approached Circuit Alert Electrical and Solar for a quote. After meeting with Martin and Lachlan on site and explaining our situation, their follow up response took us completely by surprise with the extraordinarily generous offer to provide sponsorship support to install a new system at our Club. This entirely unsolicited offer and subsequent actions are a true measure of the genuine commitment to community this company demonstrates. With their offer we were able to extend the project to installation of the largest system possible for the roof space, to realise a significant boost to meeting the running costs of the Centre over time. Once agreed, Lisa attended to all the formalities and the process from start to finish was flawless. There was no question too difficult, and much useful information and additional hints were readily offered to fill the gaps in our knowledge. The install team lead by Richard were highly efficient, friendly, responsive and extremely helpful particularly with the removal of the old system. We are thankful and delighted to have entered into a long term partnership with this family owned and operated, local Nambour company and happily commend Circuit Alert Electrical and Solar to you for all your solar and electrical needs.Nambour & District Tennis Assoc11 Washington St

There are a lot of solar providers in the market however we wanted to support a local business who knew their stuff. We narrowed our search down to 2 local companies and chose Circuit Alert as their communication from the very beginning was brilliant. From the admin team, sales and install the process was seamless. We were thoroughly informed along the way and the install team were very accommodating of our needs. I would highly recommend you choose circuit alert as your solar provider, you will not be disappointed.

These guys are top notch. They installed our 5.5kW solar system in august 2019 and it’s been running effortlessly since feeding twice the amount of energy we use back to the grid. Circuit Alert were very professional with the installation and on any the follow ups we had. I couldn’t recommend them higher. Thanks guys

Martin and Lisa were incredibly helpful from start to finish. They added on a new solar system to work with our old one which wasn’t performing as we wanted due to size and the location it was installed by another company. Their team were very professional and clean on the day of install and overall we couldn’t have been happier with the entire process, quality and cost. We received our bill after 5 weeks with the additional solar on and we has already earnt a $150 discount. We can’t wait to see our bills continue to decrease in the future. No question, call Martin and Lisa if you’re looking for anything solar related!

Great Service, Great Price, Great Team! The installation was very well done and very clean, our solar panels compliment our roof and we could not have asked for a better installer. We could not recommend you highly enough!

Aaron & Lucy

I purchased a 5kw system from Richard of Circuit Alert Electrical using the Samil inverter and having it on the grid for 1 month now, not only have we zeroed our electricity bill but it is making us money!!! Dealing with Circuit Alert was great, Richard and his team turned up on time and I couldn’t believe how neat the job was upon completion. I would, and have recommended Circuit Alert Electrical to everyone.

Ian

My name is Jim Liddle and I am a builder. Richard, from Circuit Alert is not the usual electrician that I use in my business but when it came to solar power, he is very good. I really liked his professional manner and his knowledge of solar power. The price for quality that I received was fantastic. I recommend Circuit Alert for your solar power solutions.

Jim Liddle

Richard was highly recommended by a person that had experienced his work and was happy in every respect with his teams attention to detail. After speaking to Richard briefly it was apparent that he was passionate about his trade and his commitment to excellence. Richard and his two well-presented young men arrived on time as promised and worked flat out all day. The price charged was competitive and the system has been generating power to expectations. We would have no hesitation in strongly recommending Circuit Alert to any new client.

Colleen & Matt Cleveland

In the wee hours this morning your super-quiet electrician knocked on my door and installed the above. All of this happened whilst my Chief Accountant and I were in bed fast asleep. Your service is simply stunning !!…I have never had a tradesman ever so adept that all is expedited whilst the customer sleeps……… Thank you so much as this restores my wavering faith in the trade services industry.

Testimonials from some of our regular Builders

Most Common FAQs About Solar Panels Installation

The Queensland Government scheme helps property owners to go solar without much hassle by paying
for the excess exported solar power. Residents of QLD who have opted for new solar installations are
eligible for a solar rebate. The average solar rebate in QLD is approx $4,215. However, the rebate amount
may fluctuate based on the size of the solar panel.

Absolutely! Installing solar panels will not only increase your home’s value but also help you with
reducing your energy consumption bill. Solar panels are especially worth it if you live in an area where
the energy rate is significantly high.

There are three possibilities for this scenario:

(i) You could be using more electricity from the grid than the assumed numbers and calculations of

savings.

(ii) Your solar panels are not producing enough energy. 

(iii) The predicted calculations for savings via solar were incorrect.

This doesn’t have a simple answer as it really depends on the panels and inverters used; and other things to consider are the difficulty of the installation.
 
You will see systems advertised by some foreign owned companies at very low prices of around $500 per kW these can often be a result of re-branded grey imported products and are often installed by subcontractors that haven’t been paid sufficiently to install the system to an acceptable standard. This can, and often does, result in voided warranties; meaning if the system has a problem in the future, the client can be left out of pocket to repair it or even having to replace the entire system at their own cost.
You should expect to pay around $750 per kW for a quality system that has been installed well and has warranties that are backed locally.

Solar power can help reduce your power bill by around $400 per year – per kW of the solar system.
However, the cost may even increase or decrease based on the size of your home and daily power
Consumption.

Many of our clients enjoy greatly reduced energy bills and some have either a zero energy bill or are even in credit after the solar feed in is applied to their account. A common problem we see is that some people have been ill advised into installing systems too small to have enough impact on their energy bill.

Solar isn’t a one size fits all, so its very important to make sure you’re installing the best system for your needs. Things to consider: Your current or projected energy bill without solar and how much of this energy is used during the day time when the solar is working and how much energy you will need to export to the grid to cover your night time usage. We use sophisticated software to help calculate the size system that would best suit your needs and budget.

Yes you can. There are several solutions available that will allow you to charge an electric car directly from the solar panels and one of our preferred, is the SMA sunny car charger. We also install the Solaredge integrated inverter car charger.
 
Charging electric cars directly from solar not only reduces your energy cost but also reduces your impact on the environment.
Over recent years technology has really leapt ahead with solar panels and we are no longer restricted to just facing panels to the north to make them work efficiently.
 
One of the main things to consider when designing the system is when you use your power.
 
If you have a hot water tank, we can face some panels to the east so it heats your hot water in the morning free from the solar.
 
Or maybe you have a pool and can pump the pool in the afternoon so we can put some panels on the west.
There are even some cases where if there is no other roof available, we can use a south facing roof and increase the system size to accommodate the loss in performance.
 
In all cases it’s important the system is well planned out by an experienced suitably qualified person and a projected system performance report is generated so you feel happy with the results before going ahead with any design.
The short answer is Yes you do. In almost all cases you would qualify for a federal grant or
more commonly and correctly known as the STC rebate.
 
If you own a home or commercial building you will qualify to claim a stc credit on any system upto 100kw in size. You can claim multiple times upto to this size on each building. So if you own several buildings on different metering points you can claim up to 100kw on each. How this is calculated is on the size of the system being installed, so the bigger the system the bigger the grant. A typical 6.6 kw system generates approximately 91 STCs which have an approximate value of $37 each or $3367 off the cost of the system. Reputable companies will quote you whats called ‘an out of pocket cost’ which is the cost of the system you pay once the rebate has been deducted.
 
It’s important to be aware that the value of STCs can go down in value and some unscrupulous companies may chase you for any shortfall, if the value of the STCS drops below what they have quoted you. Which in some cases their rebate portion of the quotes are artificially high to give the impression you are getting a good deal. (read the small print in their T&C)
