Commercial Grid Connect Solar System at Great Lakes Council – Forster

“Great Lakes Council wished to reduce its carbon footprint and sought the professional expertise of Garry Williams and the Solar Service Centre team for solar solutions at its Administration Building in Breeze Parade, Forster.
The Council couldn’t be happier with its 27k Watt Solar Array which was custom designed and professionally installed by Solar Service Centre. The installation will save council $10,000 per annum in energy costs as well as reducing over 43 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial and council would not hesitate to work with Solar Service Centre on energy efficient initiatives in the future for other council facilities.  Council has recently engaged Solar Service Centre for the supply and installation of a number of solar hot water systems for council facilities.”

Commercial installation at Tea Gardens Resort – Tea Gardens

Over the past 2 years our business The Boathouse Resort Tea Gardens has been working with Solar Service Centre to reduce our carbon footprint. It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial as not only have I been amazed with the savings that our Heliocol swimming pool heating and our new 20kw inverter system have been able to achieve I am also extremely happy with the friendly and professional service of Garry and all of his team. Nothing has been too much trouble for any of them and they arrive on time and work with little disruption to our busy resort. Thank you for all of your help and we look forward to working with you in the future.”
STUART SINCLAIR – Manager, Boathouse Resort Tea Gardens

What LED Light are you using?

After having Solar Service Centre install our new Stand Alone Solar System, we replaced all our existing lighting with new quality LED globes supplied by the Solar Service Centre and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Apart from the energy efficiency, the lights are wonderfully bright and excellent lighting to work under. We were previously turned off LED lighting after purchasing some globes from a major retailer and were very disappointed with the quality and brightness of the lights, but the globes supplied by Solar Service Centre are far superior to any I have purchased before and well worth the investment.”

Stand Alone System – Residential

We requested a Stand Alone System with ample power to run our large country property’s home and office requirements.

The system Gary installed was as designed in 2008 and consists of 20 x 175w panels 10 each on trackers – an Apollo T80 regulator, 12 x 4.5v Raylite batteries and a Selectronic SP Pro Inverter with PL 20 System Controller.

We had heard a lot of negatives about solar power, including lack of stored power and system reliability. Gary assured us the system would deliver the power required without malfunction – and it does.

We live in a valley in remote NSW and have year-round power at the envy of our neighbours who suffer frequent brown-outs and power interruptions.

Air conditioning has been added to our home and we run it in summer as required, and winter of a morning. The summer cooling is mostly from Float, and winter takes 3% of stored energy per hr heating. An hour will heat the home in the morning.

Initially (and Gary’s recommendation) we installed a gas generator as back up. We wasted our money as it has never been needed!

Go solar – it’s clean and reduces your carbon footprint. Bonus …no increasing electricity bills and continuous RELIABLE ENERGY.”

Grid Connect System – Residential

… Garry turned up on time and they (Solar Service Centre) answered all my questions with no glossy salesman talk, the most competitive of the 3 quotes and nothing was too much trouble.  Garry was frank and to the point …he didn’t try to oversell to me, … he didn’t want to sell me what I didn’t need. My wife commented on how clean his tradesmen were. I would not hesitate for one second in recommending Solar Service Centre to anyone considering green power.”
