Ongoing Support

Zac and the team are committed to providing great support and guidance long after your install is completed.

Our goal is to get the most out of your solar as possible, so it pays for itself as quickly as possible. And you only use the grid power you absolutely need.

While we’d all like to think solar is a ‘set and forget’ experience, the truth is it can take a few months to dial in the best settings, make sure you are on the right power plan, and generally fine-tune your system. 

And if your situation changes – like a child moves out, or you start working from home – it’s always worth revisiting your set up.

Zac and the Garden City Solar team are here for the long run, and are committed to providing great support and guidance long after your install is completed.

We don’t have a pushy sales team, and we don’t outsource our installations. We’ve built our business on trusted long-term relationships.

You can be sure: we’ll be there when you need us.

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!
