Installed a 12 panel solar system at my property

Zac installed a 12 panel solar system at my property recently. Firstly he outlined the benefits of having solar and gave me a guide on the savings I would make. The decision was made and I went ahead. Zac is a very pleasant person to deal with and he explained very carefully all the details once it was installed.
From signing the agreement, I didn’t have too long to wait until it was installed. I have no hesitation in recommending Zac to install a solar system for anyone.

Really happy with the solar

Really happy with the solar. Zac was great to deal with, listened to what I wanted and made suggestions based on my situation. He was really helpful and happy to chat and answer all my questions.

I got a small battery set up and haven’t paid for power since! The battery is enough to get us through the night and is generally charged by lunch time. The rest we are selling and banking for winter.

There are a lot of companies doing solar and it can be quite overwhelming and hard to choose, but I would definitely recommend going with Hillside solar!
