With electricity prices continuing to rise and more and more Australians seeking peace and quiet on rural blocks, the appeal of off-grid solar on the Sunshine Coast is growing. Going off-grid is different from normal solar for homes or standard residential solar power...

Until recently we have avoided installing lithium batteries on off-grid systems due to concerns about reliability and suitability however the new battery from LG Chem has changed our minds. The LG Chem M48126P3S 48V battery has a total storage of 6.5kWhs and up to 10...
Off-Grid solar power is increasing in popularity in the regional areas of the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane as more and more people want to disconnect from the power grid. There are a huge variety of systems on offer however if you are considering installing an off-grid...
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...

The process was smooth and professional and Mike a pleasure to deal with. Very happy with the outcome and would definitely recommend.
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.

I did my homework prior to engaging a company, and I’m glad I choose Sunworks Solar. The whole team were amazing from the very start! They had an abundance of knowledge, which they explained in lay terms. Reasonably priced. They had the job done well before time. They were nothing but professional and respectful. Highly recommended!!

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.

Online, via phone and face to face I spoke with a lot of solar providers before settling on SunWorks. I spent a lot of time trying to pin down exactly which combination of inverter, panels, etc made the most sense for us. After a fortnight I realised that Mike had suggested on day one the exact set-up that it took me 2 weeks to piece together. A further two weeks and everything is in place and singing: utterly professional, friendly and the most price competitive (frankly he didn’t need to be). Recommend highly and without reservation. Thank you Mike and the team at SunWorks.
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.

The guys at The Sunworks Solar Centres, really know their stuff & their professionalism is 2nd to none! I went in with an unusual request, to help me set up a solar light system for my stables. Wow🙌🏽 These guys are amazing!!! My stables are now fully lit using a solar light system I had designed but could never of succeeded without The Sunworks Solar Centres help. Thanks guys, you have blown me away!!!! I totally recommend these guys to everyone
Professionalism is 2nd to none
Great people to deal with. Very conservative with their estimate didn’t over promise, over delivered on service and the installation team were professional and their workmanship was completed to a very high untouchable standard. Highly recommend!!!!!

I had SunWorks Solar install solar for me in January 2019. At the time of investigating solar I had quite a few different organisations visit and inspect my property to give me their sales pitch. Some didn’t know what they were selling me, some I’m still waiting for a quote from. However Mike was totally different. It was obvious that he knew what he was talking about and not the to just get a sale. I felt completely confident in the information and products on offer. Mike’s knowledge was also spot on regarding the process and timeline for preparing for the feedback to the grid. Upon installation, I felt equally as confident in SunWorks install team led by Pete. Given the time which has passed since my install, I can confirm that the after sales service is just as good. How many services do you know follow up to see how everything is going months after installation. I can also say my neighbour, colleague from work and brother have also had their solar installed by SunWorks and are just as happy. Well done SunWorks, highly recommend!
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.
