J from Little Mountain contacted us because he was interested in installing a solar power system with battery storage in his home. He wanted to have a system that was capable of providing battery power even when the power grid failed and our solar power and battery experts recommended he install a 5.6kW system with 20 x REC 280 watt Twin Peak solar panels, a SolaX hybrid inverter / charger with EPS and a 6.5kW LG Chem RESU battery. The system was recently installed and he is already considering expanding the battery storage which is simple to do with the LG Chem RESU LV batteries. The system is fully monitored on-line and the easy to read displays show the power production from the solar panels, the power being used by the home, powering flowing into or out of the battery and power being exported to and imported from the power grid. This image shows the household power profile in the early evening. As you can see the power being produced by the solar panels is almost finished for the day with only 170 watts being produced. The LG Chem battery is providing 2,508 watts of power to meet 60% of the household load of 4,914 watts with the remaining 1,834 watts coming from the power grid. The following morning the household load has dropped to only 262 watts with 3,930 watts being produced by the REC Twin Peak solar panels. 1,974 watts of this power is being used to recharge the battery which is almost fully recharged and the remaining 1,416 watts is being exported to the grid. In the event of a grid failure the SolaX EPS box will ensure that essential circuits in the home continue to operate. During the day electricity will be provided from both the solar panels and the battery and at night the power will be provided solely by the battery. Please note that the SolaX EPS takes a few seconds to kick in and is not therefore a UPS system. SunWorks Solar is the Sunshine Coast’s leading installer of battery storage systems.

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.
SunWorks Solar on the Sunshine coast QLD, I installed a 5kW Fronius inverter and REC N-peak solar panels + a smart meter that allows me to see in real time on my mobile phone how much electricity is being generated by my panels, how much my house is using & how much is going back to the grid. I chose SunWorks because of the lack of bad reviews and the MANY good reviews online. Mike in the office was very knowledgeable and helpful & the installation guys were prompt & done very tidy work. They removed the old wiring from my previous solar system rather than utilizing it (no short cuts). I was impressed with their work from start to finish. My solar system is working great. I highly recommend SunWorks solar on the Sunshine coast QLD.
I highly recommend SunWorks Solar

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.

Great local team
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!
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
Can’t recommend them highly enough
Extremely happy with all aspects of the service that Mike, Peter & their team offer right from initial quoting through to install & support to help us understand using our system. I looked into many companies before choosing The Sun Works Solar & no others compared to their professionalism & quality of service provided. To have the install team as one of the partners, rather than contracted out to others, further ensures the quality of their work as well as the support should any issues come up in the future. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family & friends & have so already!Thanks again Mike, Peter & The Sun Works team.
