Surrey Downs
Hi Paul, Just thought I would give you a follow up with our solar system with the battery backup. It's been 3 months now since you installed our complete system and wow the results have been improving as the sun starts to rise for summer. As our yard is fairly shaded the choice in panels was a good one thanks. We had our first 2 blackouts the other week it was great. The first was around midnight for an hour so no dramas, then the second hit on the Friday night with a quarter left to go in the football, hey presto the battery took over, no game time lost, that lasted well over 3 plus hours. The best was last week, battery had aprox 70% charge lasted all afternoon/night and through to 7-30am where it had left us still with our backup 30% "Oh What A Feeling " .When you were installing our system I mentioned our friends were also putting in a system, the STD cheap system, they now have had it refitted twice and worry that is it working properly? The old story you get what you pay for , and are quite envious of our system . We had our meter read last week so are looking forward to see the results for our first qtr we think its going to be very favourable .Well Paul, Karen and I thank you for your professional and personal dealings with our system and look forward to ongoing contacts.

"Impressive!! Is the first word that comes to mind when I think about our dealings with the Solar-Man, Paul Staska and his team. Another word is, professional!  When our family decided to purchase solar panels, I set about the task of researching the best option for us. I spent many hours reading information and conversing with those (supposedly) in the know.

We received a number of quotes, which ranged from the flyer handed out at the supermarket to glossy folders full of information. Surprisingly, follow-up contact from one particular company was via text message offering a discount on the previously (loosely) supplied quote.
Paul, on the other hand was the only consultant that got up on to our roof to take specific measurements, and even re-scheduled to ensure his safety due to the risk of getting up on our roof during inclement weather. Being in the field of work health and safety this is a fact that didn’t go unnoticed. 

 Now, whilst the Solar-Man wasn’t necessarily the cheapest quote, Paul was again the only consultant that provided us with a detailed quote, personalised for our family’s requirements and desired results – including the monetary value and return for the system proposed.

From start (initial consult) to finish (installation) the entire process took just over 4 weeks, which included another re-schedule due to inclement weather ensuring everyone’s safety. From acceptance of the quote to the introduction to the rest of the team, Danielle, Deb, Mark and Brian - every step of the way was explained in easy to understand language and expeditiously dealt with.
So, if you will indulge me with two offers of advice – they would be;
• to do your own research thoroughly; and/or
• take my word for it, the Solar-Man wins hands down due to their impressive professionalism."

"We would like to thank Paul, Debbie and Danielle also Brian and Mark on the stress free experience of ordering and fitting our 3kw system to our property at Old Reynella. Guys, you have it all down pat, 8.30 means 8.30. You even managed to oranise the weather to be perfect on install day, just magic, was really nice to deal with a company not trying to give away freebie gifts/cases of apples etc . Not the cheapest but certainly not the dearest, just good value customer service and product, very happy with all aspects from first contact to install, thank you."


Happy Valley
"Just writing to say thank you to you and your team for the positive experience you've provided to us to date. As a customer with many (many!) questions and high expectations we've been very impressed with the service provided by you and your team. So far the solar system seems to be producing at a good rate, and the whole process has really been free-of-fuss and low stress. After having experienced some solar companies who used 'pressure' tactics, your honest, down-to-earth, extensive advice has been very much appreciated." 
 

Westbourne Park
"To the team at Solar-man, We would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved in setting up our Fronius inverter and sunpower panels. The system is working a treat. The professional approach from our first visit, to the neat installation (leaving room for additional panels was thoughtful) and any answers to the questions we had regarding the system along the way, was fantastic. We would highly recommend Paul and the solar-man team, in fact , we still have the solar-man sign up out the front. By the way, I am reading the inverter peak output at 5238W. (This is a 4.6kW Sunpower system, coupled with Fronius 5kW inverter)"
 

Meadows
"Just a short note, to thank you all for the ease of my solar installation. I was very hesitant at the beginning, but found that I was very comfortable in all dealings with your company. I commend everyone, from Paul in coming up and giving me a quote, to the office staff, who were very helpful and considerate, to the installers, whose workmanship and friendliness is exemplary. Thank you again, for a job well done.
Sincerely, E.L.

Toorak Gardens (System Upgrade:)
"Dear “Solarman” Paul: Thank you for your prompt, punctual and professional installation on Wednesday. On day one (very overcast) the panels produced 7KW, something the previous panels had not managed. Today (still mainly overcast) it was 9KW, unbelievable. This is great."
 

McLaren Vale
"Dear Solar-Man, We would like to thank you and your team for the wonderful job on our solar fitting and all the friendly support that you and the guys gave us, also keeping us updated with the stages especially due to inclement weather. Thanks once again and we would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a solar system and installation."
 

Coromandel Valley
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent service. When the first company we looked into told us that we just wouldn't fit a system on our roof we were pretty disappointed, just assuming that was the end of any hope we had of having a Solar System. Other companies tried to sell us systems that wouldn't have worked overly well, or were much smaller than we wanted. One told us that an East-West system would work well for us, others wouldn't come out to look at our house and said it was too small for even a 1KW system just by looking at a picture of our house on the internet, others wouldn't let us choose the components that we wanted after our literally hours and hours of research into the whole Solar Panels industry. Saying that we had to get either A Panel or B Panel and X or Y inverter, but not allowing us to choose which of each. Yet you guys have fitted a 2.85KW system on our roof no worries with the components we wanted. When Paul came out, he certainly knew his stuff and was very helpful. You guys answered all of our questions thoroughly whenever we called and made the process very simple for us. Brian and Mark were both courteous and friendly when they came to do the install, and put the panels up with minimum disruption to our family, leaving no mess behind. Now that they've finished, the Panels look great and are producing energy as I write this. We will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you guys to anyone who asks us."

Port Elliot
"I'd like to thank you both, for your professional service and installation of our solar system. Brian and Mark did a top job today, installing our 3.8kw system and I would not hesitate in recommending your business to others." 

Berri
"Just wanted to let you know how impressed we've been with your service. You can probably imagine the sort of info we were getting when we first started researching solar panels. At best I would say the stories we were being told were misleading. I approached your company after doing some research and finally being referred by word-of-mouth. It seemed to me that choosing a quality installer was the best way to avoid getting caught out by poor products or workmanship. I will never be an expert on solar, but it was obvious from talking to you the first time that you were. The process has been absolutely without stress - no high-pressure sales pitch just outstanding service and results. Everything happened how you said it would, when you said it would and I never had to make a single phone call to sort out any problems. We are recommending you to everyone without any reservation! Thanks for the great service - we are now happily generating power from our beautiful Riverland sun!"

Sheoak Flat
"Paul & the Solar-Man team. Brian & Mark did a great job with the installation & were good workers as well. Paul's knowledge with the installation was exceptional. Thanks Paul & all the team. Great people to deal with."

Queenstown
"Dear Solar-Man, the guys were great and did a fantastic job. Everything is working fine. Thanks for the installation being earlier than first thought. Thanks for everything."
 

Eden Hills
"It has been an absolute delight to see our meter go backwards as the solar panels do their work.
Many thanks to your team for the expert advice and assistance in working through the cost benefit of installing the panels. Solar is the way forward and we are very pleased with the service provided by all your team from the initial response to our phone call to the team that did the installation. We were very pleased with your service and recommend your company with compete confidence."

Beaumont
"Thought you might be interested in the comments made by the installer of the I/E meter who I understand is a solar installer himself. He had just come from an installation that he had had to condemn because of poor workmanship and when he opened our meter box his comment was "I wish they were all as good as this!"

Macclesfield
"I am writing to express how pleased Barry and I are with the solar system your company designed and constructed for us last month. Your presentation about solar was very professional and informative, this was all new to us and you were able to answer all of our questions and give us very sound advice.
We were also impressed with your installation team in the excellent way they installed our system.
We have no hesitation in recommending your company and have already done so to neighbours and friends."

Willunga
"We had a 2.1kW grid connected photo voltaic system installed on our residence in March 2009 and further upgraded to 2.52kW in April 2010. The system was designed and installed by Paul Staska (SOLAR-MAN). Throughout the process from quotation through to installation, we found Paul to be very professional. He explained all aspects of the system to our satisfaction, and completed the work in a timely, efficient and professional manner. We have no hesitation in recommending SOLAR-MAN as a preferred solar system design and installation contractor."

Greenwith
"We would like to thank Paul and his team for a great job on the installation of our Solar panels. From the very first phone call to Paul I felt that we could trust him to carry out a professional job. He was patient and understanding of our concerns and answered all our questions in a professional but friendly manner. We were impressed with his commitment to the environment and by his explanations of all work to be carried out. The installation process went ahead without problems, his workmen were friendly and efficient and did a great job. We look forward to many years of "Sunpower". We can confidently recommend the Solar-Man company to anyone who is looking at installing solar energy."

Blackwood
"Recently I had a P.V. Energy system installed at my home at Blackwood. After obtaining quotes from 3 companies, I selected Solar-man to undertake the work. Meeting with Paul Staska from Solar-Man convinced me he was the person for the job simply by his approach, professionalism and attention to detail. I was also happy with the way in which the installers did their job with a minimum of fuss, mess and disruption. All-in-all, a good experience."

Warooka
"Paul Staska has supplied, organised and installed a 9 panel solar grid connected electricity supply system to my home in a very professional and competent manner, as well as managed all the paperwork involved with government rebate and renewable energy certificates, well above industry best practice standards. His attention to detail, quality of work, and desire to please is excellent. I have found him to be truthful and honest at all times and have I have no hesitation at all in recommending him as a very competent and efficient tradesman and businessman."
 

Summertown & Normanville
Paul Staska, known as SOLAR-MAN, recently completed a grid-connect solar electricity installation for us in Summertown in the Adelaide Hills, and later at Normanville. We were impressed by his design and installation qualifications and expertise. His knowledge and long-standing experience enabled him to be cost-competitive with other installers including the larger organisations/s whose customers were being substantially subsidised by a financial institution's "discount". He delivered high quality, guaranteed product to higher-than-required specification, on time and on budget, and completed all the necessary paperwork to ensure timely changeover and to secure maximum government and industry rebate. We regard him as a professional designer and installer, and were impressed with his businesslike approach from competitive quoting through to installation and compliance-certification. We recommend him unreservedly to others who might be considering solar electricity generation."
 

Happy Valley
"I was really impressed with the quality of workmanship and the attention to detail by Paul and his electrician. The installation went smoothly and is now performing extremely well."
 

Windsor Gardens
"Dear Paul, thank you for the recent installation of 5 solar panels on my roof and advice on the best hot water system which now sits adjacent. The whole system looks superb: modern, symmetrical, practical, and very well laid out. More importantly, it is great to see the electricity meter spinning away in the right direction and to excitedly await the first cheque from the utility company. Your professionalism, knowledge of building practices and excellent tradesman skills, across several disciplines, was certainly noted and appreciated. Furthermore, your flexibility, logical approach and ability to schedule in, with the other tradespeople working on the roof, (roof restoration/cleaners/ painters and air-conditioning commissioners etc) was outstanding. Finally, your taking the responsibility for completing the reams of documentation, forms and paperwork was really appreciated. In summary, great job, well done. I would have no hesitation in recommending you
