How much energy do I need for my off-grid home? Each home has its own unique energy requirement so there is no such thing as a one size fits all off-grid solar power system. As a rule of thumb most suburban homes connected to the energy grid use between 12 and 15kWhs...

Having spent several months researching possible solar options for our new Sunshine Coast home we quickly learned exactly what it was we wanted to install, but the next piece in the puzzle, finding the right company with the best price and service options to back it up was far more challenging. With lots of companies happy to take your money but not necessarily happy to work with you to refine your selections and therefore your needs, we were thrilled to discover the sincerity and professionalism offered to us by Sunworks Solar. Our sales professional, Wayne, and his side kick Mike were always available to answer questions and nothing was ever too much trouble. Peter and his installation team were stunning. Despite a showery day and several interruptions, our job was completed and the final outcome was stunning – everything was so neat, so well thought through, so perfectly planned, so concisely explained. So, if you’re looking for the ultimate solar solution, we believe you won’t do better than Sunworks Solar in Maroochydore, a genuinely reliable company in a sea of uncertainty and hype.

From quotation through to design and installation, Sunworks were professional, easy to deal with and delivered a quality product and install. Everything working as planned and being completely off grid and able to use an 8.5kw air con now is bliss. Thanks Mike and Peter. Top job and happy to recommend your services and company to anyone looking for that quality/value proposition.

Recently Sun Works put a 5 kW Fronius inverter and 20 REC panels on our house. This was recommended after a site visit and various options were canvassed. Within a week of this visit the work was done – old panels removed, new ones put up and the inverter connected to our supplier. Paperwork took five minutes and our iPad app was connected to the inverter so we could be gratified about what we we making each day. None of this would be possible without Sun Works great team – Mike, Peter and Wayne, not forgetting their hardworking panel installers crawling over and under the roof. Each man is a expert and a pleasure to deal with personally, by email or on the phone. You might think all this ‘over the top’ but this is the third house Sun Works have done for us. This speaks volumes for these men and their company – 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Thank you once again!

The process was smooth and professional and Mike a pleasure to deal with. Very happy with the outcome and would definitely recommend.
Mike and Wayne in the office were easy to talk to and could cut through the spin. Very happy with the system Pete and the boys installed. All work was neat and tidy. The system is performing brilliantly. Highly recommended and couldn’t be happier.

I was very impressed by the sales process. I asked many questions which were fully answered, and requested several different quotations and options. The quotes were clearly documented and had appropriate additional technical materials appended. The final pricing was competitive and the responsiveness of the sales person (Wayne Deckert) was great which to me was an important factor. The installation team arrived at the exact time promised on each day and certainly gave me the confidence that they were specialists in their field. Overall I can most certainly recommend Sun Works to others considering a solar system. Our system was installed during April 2018.
I can most certainly recommend Sun Works
Not a single thing i’d have different about my experience with The SunWorks Solar, I dealt with 4 people during the purchase and installation of my Solar System and each person was knowledgeable, passionate and very helpful. These guys get teamwork. Since having my system installed, I’m now monitoring my power usage on my phone and I can already see the savings stacking up! I wish I could have signed up earlier. Thanks SunWorks Team!
From the initial contact, Mike’s communication was excellent. He spent approximately 30 minutes over the phone discussing options before sending a detailed quote with extensive product information attached. After making a decision, Mike was quick to make an appointment for assessment and the following week the solar system was installed. Pete and his crew were very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. I highly recommend The Sun Works as the company on the coast for solar advice and installation. I have complete confidence in The Sun Works delivering quality advice and workmanship in future.

Dealing with Mike at Sunworks Solar was fantastic.
We had a small off grid system installed on our property on the Sunshine Coast.
I contacted quite a few companies regarding having an off grid system installed and to be honest they were all hopeless apart from Sunworks Solar and particularly Mike.
You will find that most companies will simply look up your address on Google maps to give you a price based on what sort of system they think you need but Mike came out to the property and had a good look at the house and the surrounding area.
Not know much about what type or size of system to install Mike’s input advise and best of all honesty way greatly appreciated.
Great company, great service and great people.
