2 years ago, we invested in a solar system for our business premises with Accord Electrical & Solar.  The team did an initial business case analysis on a system for us based on our usage and recommended a system.

Our initial investment for the system was $16,000+gst.  As a business expense it was tax deductable and we could claim the immediate depreciation deduction (Assets under $30,000).

Our electricity bill annually prior to having solar was on average $7,000 +gst  per year.  After having solar installed, our annual electricity costs decreased to an average of $1,800 +gst per year a saving of $5200 pa.

It is a pretty simple equation to see that within 3 years we will see a return on initial investment and reap the benefits of this for the years following in line with what Accord had promised us. In my opinion, it is a no brainer.  You are not only reducing business costs, but also using a sustainable energy source reducing carbon emissions output and building your environmental business credentials.

I have no hesitation in recommending investing in a solar system with the team at Accord Electrical and Solar.

We first heard of Accord Electrical when endorsed by Finn Peacock at SolarQuotes as one of a few recommended local coastal solar companies. After attempting to compare apples with apples it was all very confusing to know what was the right solar package for us. I contacted Accord Electrical and had an in-depth conversation with Bruce Manning. Bruce made an appointment to visit, assess our needs and provided various options for us to consider. After a few more phone calls, emails and with much consideration on the specs we were pleased to accept Accord Electricals’ quote on supplying an 8KW Sungrow Inverter with 26x 350W Hyundai Mono Crystalline premium solar panels for our home. What was important to us was to know the install would be entirely carried out by one company and not outsourced to external contractors and labourers, and that they would be available for after care enquires.

The install team arrived promptly on the day, a team of very upbeat lads and even cleaned up after themselves. They were on site for approximately 6 hours.

We had a follow up visit from Brett to ensure everything was running smoothly and also to provide a run down on how to use the wireless inverter software app and interpret the data. I guarantee you will visit this app many times in the next coming days and weeks to watch how your solar is working for you.

Thank you very much to Bruce and the Accord Electrical team. Do yourself a favour and give these solar specialists a call.

Looking forward to receiving our first electricity bill!

Bruce has been totally fabulous. Answering all my questions planning to fit us in then being OK to delay due to other issues with the roof that needed fixing prior to installation. Incredibly responsive, flexible and accomodating.

How does a $41 credit after 1 month of solar sound? And that’s with a pool running 8 hours a day, myself and wife both working from home and all the appliances you can poke a stick at keeping 2 young kids entertained.

That’s what I’ve experienced after trusting Bruce and the legends at Accord Electrical to supply and install a system on a recently purchased house.

Bruce was upfront and honest about what size system was best for maximising the available roof space in order to gain maximum returns.

Seriously people, stop wasting $ paying for electricity and contact Accord Electrical NOW!!!!

Accord Electrical offers a great service to my building business. I can trust them to get the job right, make sure it looks right, and be friendly and helpful to my customers. Dave is just fantastic on all our sites and Mark is extremely helpful and great with knowing what to do in difficult situations. That is why Accord Electrical have been my electricians of choice for many years.

We had been approached by another company that were door knocking looking for work. They were being quite forceful in wanting us to sign up immediately. My husband felt that we should do some more research and in doing so he came across Accord Electrical & Solar.

We met Bruce and he gave us a good run down on our options for the size of roof space and sun angle. He also advised us to research the power companies to see who would give us the best deal and he came to us with a system that was so much better than we had been looking at before.

We wanted to use local and we wanted to use a respected firm.

Accord have been fantastic and have more than met our expectations and then some. Even the company owner came out to help in the set up.

We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking at getting solar.

They are professional, reputable and local.

Many thanks to Bruce and the team. From beginning to end, I felt the team was knowledgeable, efficient, considerate and customer focused. The thing I loved the most was that you were prompt – unbelievably prompt – came to visit the day I inquired. How good is that? When you work full time, this is incredibly valuable. And that level of dedication continued to completion. Thanks again.

Fantastic crew. Very professional install and approach. Faultless Solaredge system – offers amazing flexibility, better efficiency and superior monitoring applications. Form initial interaction with Bruce, to site visits and liaison with Brett and Simon, I have been thoroughly impressed. My neighbour has seen the workmanship and quality of the SolarEdge system and is having one installed also. Overall a very easy and professional experience. Cannot recommend enough. Thanks.

I used Accord Electrical for the second time recently. The quote was done promptly and their installer Dale arrived on time. He was polite and answered my many questions. I was very happy with the work done and the price. Dale came back the following week to change a light fitting for me — again arrived on time. I would recommend Accord Electrical to anyone wanting work done. Many thanks from a satisfied Customer.

We recently had a 6kW system installed and the whole process from the initial contact, sales and site visit through to quotation, follow up questions being answered quickly, quote acceptance and ultimately to the installation..all went very smoothly. The install team did a very professional job, working extremely hard to get the system installed just how we wanted it and all done in a single day. Once the new digital meter was installed we could turn the system on and it has worked faultlessly ever since. We are able to review system performance via the Inverter app and the system is performing beyond our expectations of electricity generation. For the first time in our lives we are actually looking forward to seeing the next electricity bill as I’m sure we will now be ‘in credit’ vs the usual bill to be paid. Accord Electrical have done a great job for us and I can thoroughly recommend them to anyone considering installing solar on the Sunshine Coast. We will soon be talking to them about adding a battery to our initial system and potentially purchasing another system for our rental property based on the excellent experience we have had to date. Thanks again Brett and the Accord Electrical team

It was a long process to get the system in, but that was not related to Accord, it was the builder. But the guys from Accord did everything expected of them. Pre-wiring went in a few months before the build was completed. Very neat and clearly identifiable for other trades not to mess it up, The Accord guys did a great job and when the panels were being installed, they consulted with me. They treated the property with respect and were clearly cognisant of their responsibilities. Would absolutely recommend Accord Electrical for your solar and other electrical needs. And remember guys, don’t just have a good day… have a safe day!

This is the second time that we have used the services of Accord Electrical. We are so impressed with all aspects of this Electrical company. They are punctual, polite, knowledgeable and work swiftly. We had a solar panel inverter replaced a couple of months ago and then this week, we had 3 ceiling fans and lights installed as well as another light and an external power point on our deck. All 3 electricians we have dealt with have been the most presentable friendly efficient young men. Office staff are also great to talk to and are helpful, knowedgable and organised. The work is great quality and very reasonably priced. We would recommend Accord Electrical to everyone – you won’t be disappointed. Jeff and Donna

My Solar Installation by Accord Electrical was completed this week and I must say I am very delighted with the whole experience.
Initially I requested quotes thro’ ‘Solarquotes’, but of the three recommended companies I certainly felt the most comfortable and most confident when dealing with Bruce Manning from Accord Electrical.
We got 5 quotes in all and Bruce’s quote was not the cheapest, but after searching through the internet getting information on different panels and converters and also reading installer reviews we had full confidence in the quality of the products Accord Electrical use. In fact based on reviews online they are Industry Leading products both in quality but also in warranties provided.
The guys that did the installation were friendly and efficient and they did a thorough cleanup when finished. Everything that Bruce promised initially he delivered on and more.
I have no hesitation in recommending them. and in fact one of my neighbours is now looking at using them in the new year, he called in during my installation and was happy when the guys answered some of his questions.

I did my homework and I know Accord Electrical provide quality solar systems. They take the time to ensure the system is installed properly, not just chucked on your roof as fast as humanly possible. Their sales people explain everything thoroughly, as do the sparkies on site. I know they use good stuff – right down to the roof seals and wires. Their prices are competitive too. I highly recommend them.

I had the absolute pleasure of having Accord Electrical install a 5.5KW Solar system at my home. They attended promptly and advised on the job.
I have a narrow roof space which made it awkward but I never heard once a grumble from anyone.
The did a fantastic and very professional job, everything was neat and tidy, no mess left behind. They fully explained the whole process from start to finish and even fixed a power point that had been causing me issues.
They only use quality components and their work and equipment comes with great warranties / guarantees.
I have already, and would have no hesitation in the future, recommending them for all your electrical needs.
Great job to Mark and the team.

We are REALLY happy with our emphases system. During September we were generating  around 30 kWh a day.

LOVE THE APP?    We can even tell when the neighbours are watering our garden when we are away.   tank water running off pumps….

Our Refrigerator died last week. We could even tell when it died and that it was caused through Energex street maintenance. So Cool.

We were about 20 days short out of the 3 monthly cycle and we only paid $38 bill. Cannot wait to get this quarters bill…. we should be in credit I would say… YEH.

Keep up the good work. Very happy with your service. Have a great Christmas break.

Just keep all those cloudy days down at Caloundra please …. He! He! He!

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the installation of my solar system. The guys were great. Here’s a little (very early) feedback on the system.

By my nifty mobile app (my new obsession) I can see that it produces electricity from about 6:40 am to 4:40 pm with a peak of 4.5 kW around noon. Imagine what summer will be like! It makes a lovely bell curve graph. So far, only 1 full day, it’s produced 31 kWh of electricity.

I think that the wifi inverter is a strong selling point and you should not overlook how some people will “geek out” over data!

It was a bit difficult to set up the connection with the inverter, especially when I had a blonde episode and thought I would do it after dinner. It took me an embarrassing half an hour to realise that the sun, and therefore the inverter, had gone to bed! (Facepalm moment)

The next day when the sun had graced us with its presence again, I stumbled through the confusing instructions to get the app and Sungrow Solarinfo Bank website working.

In the future, if the prices of storage comes down, I will definitely contact Accord to purchase and install a suitable product.

We had been looking at getting solar for some time.  Accord responded to all of our enquiries promptly, and arranged a time to meet us at out house shortly after we were in contact with them.  They were knowledgeable on the topic of solar power, and discussed systems that would fit our needs, without ever being pushy.  The fact that they are established in our area and have worked with solar for a long period was reassuring for us.  The panels were installed shortly after we paid our deposit and we are really happy with how they are running and how they are sited on the house.  Thank you again

It has now been a number of weeks since Accord Electrical installed a 5 kW system at our property at Cooroy on the Sunshine Coast.  We just wanted to let you know that we could not be more pleased with the job that you did. As well as the installation occurring on the nominated day and time that the electrician was professional and provided valuable advice on the operation of the system.  Further prior to the installation you were extremely prompt in responding to our queries as well as providing innovative and low cost solutions to specifically suit our local circumstances.  Further you continued to follow up till the job was completed including ensuring that the Energex was booked to complete the modification to the meter in a timely manner. Finally we would not hesitate to recommend Accord Electrical to anyone wanting electrical services in general and installing a high quality cost effective solar system.

I just wanted to thank you so very much for your time and expert opinion regarding your quote and discussion about the residence and especially for taking into consideration, the needs of my aged and ill mother, Jan Mayes, in her property at Golden Beach. 

I was initially impressed by your adaptability to fit around my mother’s doctor appointment on the day, and agreeing to arrive earlier so she could see her doctor.

I was also impressed by your timeliness and respect for my mother and I by contacting me and advising me you were going to be a little late for the new appointment time. You were very polite and respectful throughout the entire time, especially at the start of the appointment when I had to take another call and you went about your appraisal and business while I addressed the phone call when you arrived.

We were both impressed by your preparedness, extensive knowledge and obvious expertise at the meeting and throughout the discussion. We appreciated your assessment of her current situation and especially your recommendation not to go beyond the needs of the household and my mother’s financial capacity as a pensioner on oxygen support.

I must admit that I certainly wasn’t expecting you to pass up a sale and commission for the good of a propspective client! That was an outcome that neither my mother nor I expected and we both commented on your outright honestly, outstanding ethics and morals after you had departed the property. My mother even said: “That was the most honest and amazing interview and quote for a job that I have ever had and been given!!! He was a genuinely nice young man who appeared to really care about me – not out to get a sale for himself but thought about me and my needs and my finances – how amazing!”

So thank you so very much for restoring our faith in the solar business and especially their sales people and you as an outstanding representative. You are an impressive young man.

I teach at the University of the Sunshine Coast in a number of courses including Introduction to Marketing; Sport and Event Marketing; Tourism, Leisure and Event Management; Policy and Planning in Tourism, Leisure and Events. I must admit that I looked at you and saw you as a representative of my Business/Marketing students leaving university this year. You are a shining exemplar of what our university would like to be sending out into the workplace.

Congratulations on who and what you are, and especially your approach to business ethic

Best wishes,

We went with Accord Electrical because we wanted to use a local company and support our community. We have had a 5.4 kw solar system installed.the reasons we went with Accord were as follows; excellent on line reviews, they had the best products for the best price,  excellent information on the products, they put in extra effort to make it look great (followed the roof line), the job was done on time and  they gave excellent service. Also they didn’t put other company’s down which other company’s did without exception. Thanks Accord you kept it real and we kept it local. We look forward to using you again for our solar install on our main house. See you in a couple of months 🙂

Fantastic work, have had the system on for a year now. Salesman was very helpful and took his time to design a great plan for our very unusual roof shape. Just received our latest electricity bill of $200 (prior bills were all $500+ and we now have installed air conditioning too which runs most of the day). Had a government inspection of the system recently, and they gave it the thumbs up saying it was very well done.

We were happy with how fast we were booked in for installation of our solar system with Accord electrical. We were also happy that when we asked them to throw an extra panel in, They did. Sorry it’s taken so long with the review. We wanted to have our electricity bill before we reviewed, But we can always send in another one after.

These guys were local, long experience and have a great reputation. The quote was the best, quality German Inverter and good panels. Installers overruled our initial thinking of splitting the panels to both sides of the roof peak…for good reasons. Nice to have a professional walk you through it. Very efficient and clean install with no dramas, even when I asked them to put the inverter inside the garage. Highly recommend them.

I decided to accept Accord because of their willingness to answer questions, consider and discuss equipment and installation options, conduct a second visit to discuss installation and they are a well-established local general electrical contractor. Since installation, they’ve been very responsive to queries to explain and clarify matters. It’s only early days to evaluate the effectiveness of the system but the data seems pretty good so far.

The salesperson was delightful, not pushy or arrogant. The installation was painless and the working of the system was explained very well. As an established electrical company I felt comfortable dealing with them.
The system we put in seems to be going well – time will tell.
