14.9kW Solar System - Encounter Bay

September 13, 2022

What was your motivation to get solar?

"This was actually my fourth solar installation! So, I have had a large amount of experience dealing with solar. Every property that I have owned I have put solar on, because it just makes sense. So, I knew a large amount about the industry, however I was looking for a reputable company to complete my install. The main motivation for the solar installation was to future proof ourselves from raising electricity prices. I am coming up close to retirement and wanted to ensure that I was financially secure."

Why NRG Solar?

"The installation was a little complicated as it was a new build and there were a few tricky aspects to the design. The first company I called flat out said no. I chose NRG Solar through Finn Peacock. I had read his book and saw that NRG was a reputable solar company so I gave you guys a call to see if you could do the install."

What was the process like?

"It was fantastic! There was a number of issues that came along with the install that NRG handled incredibly well. There were changes to plans that caused re-designs for NRG, delays with the builders that pushed out install times for up to 3-4 months and NRG were very accommodating."

"The sit down with Michael and the design process was fantastic! Michael was very informative, he used the plans we had for the house to design an appropriate system as well as asked us questions about we were trying to achieve with our solar installation."

The Equipment Installed

  • 48 x Winaico 310W WST Panels
  • 1 x Fronius Symo Dual Tracker Inverter
  • Solar monitoring system - Fronius Smart Meter
48 x Winaico 310W Panels

What has been the outcome?

"The installation was a new build, so I have never paid a power bill for this house!"

"The after sales support was amazing. I has an issue with one of my other properties that had solar installed and NRG came out and helped me set up my solar monitoring for my Fronius inverter. Getting after-sales support for a system that was not installed by NRG was just fantastic."

Final thoughts...

"The communication was constant, the install was smooth. I would recommend NRG Solar, in fact I have recommended NRG Solar to a number of friends."
