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...

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...

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!
So happy with this company their knowledge, workmanship and professionalism. When you have experienced bad workmanship over the years, we decided finding the right solar company wasn’t going to be easy. After a friend recommended SunWorks Solar we contacted them and were impressed from the start. I felt confident and our solar system was up and running 3 days later. Can’t recommend them highly enough

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.

Mike and team have been the best solar guys ever. Great communication and lives up to all promises.
Lives up to all promises
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!
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!

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
Very professional and responsive to all questions. Competitive and a prompt and quality install. A seamless efficient end to end service. The whole team was a pleasure to deal with throughout.
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.
