Denis another happy Essential Solar customer Standing in front of his inverter
"It was a pleasure to work with Essential Solar from start till finish.All the paperwork and fine details were handled by their very efficient office staff, which was a great relief for us 2 oldies. Hayley, who is an absolute delight to deal with, came to our house and talked us through the whole process, in easy-to-understand terms, never got too technical and was able to answer all our questions. Communication with the company during the process was spot-on as well. All our calls and emails were answered promptly. The technicians who handled the installation were delightful to work with. Their work is first class, as well as being very neat and tidy. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Essential Solar to anyone that is thinking of going down the solar path. They do a great job."
