Ron and Lynda Flanigan, the owners of Torque Gas, have waved goodbye to their electricity bills and no longer have to worry about the continued increase in the cost of power.

Torque Gas recently installed one of the largest solar electrics systems on the Sunshine Coast. The owners could not be happier with the 40kw solar system that was installed at their workshop in Latcham Drive, Caloundra.

“We are very pleased with our system.  It will enable us to clear our electricity bill whilst also receiving credits from the electricity retailer for excess power that we return to the grid,” Lynda said.

Torque Gas chose local commercial and residential solar experts Solar Smart QLD as their preferred supplier. “We obtained a number of quotations and met with some companies but it was obvious from the first point of contact that the team at Solar Smart QLD had the experience and necessary skills to manage and complete the project,”Lynda said.

“We evaluated the companies and based our decision on product and price together with service and experience.  Solar Smart came out on top in all of the sections so the decision was simple.”

“Their experience within the industry together with the fact that they have recently been instructed by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council to supply and install a number of systems was a very compelling case,” Lynda added.

Ron said he highly recommends Solar Smart QLD.

“It was good old fashioned service coupled with a great price for a great product,” he said.“Other companies wanted to ‘price match’ but they simply could not match the service we received and the price and the quality of the product.”

“Solar Smart made the whole experience easy and highly enjoyable.  They welcomed our interest at every stage and were always able to answer any questions that I or my colleagues at Torque Gas would ask.  After hearing so many horror stories about the solar industry it was a pleasure to deal with such an honest and knowledgeable company such as Solar Smart QLD.”

Installing solar power can be likened to converting your car to LPGs, Lynda said. “Both attract government rebates and once the system has been installed, you start saving immediately and continue to do so year on year,” she said.

Matthew of Solar Smart said dealing with Ron and Lynda was a pleasure.

“We offered advice that enabled them to make an informed decision on which products to use.  We took them through the installation process stage by stage and completed all the necessary paperwork on their behalf.    We advised them of the installation schedule and now they are the proud owners of one of the Coast’s largest solar electrics systems”.

Thanks to Solar Smart Qld Greg and his team for installing a total of 96 x 265 watt panels and 26.44kw SMA inverter allowing us to save in excess of $1000.00 per month on our power bill. Even after financing the total cost we are still saving in excess of $600.00 per month. The system has been running for some 8 months and has delivered what was promised by the Solar Smart Qld team. So far this system has produced 35.6mwh. As there are a lot of air conditioning equipment on the roof of our building Greg and his team designed and installed the system so that there was no shade on any solar panel, hence producing the maximum energy output. Many thanks to the team for their professional service from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Solar Smart Qld (Greg & his Team) to anyone considering installation of a solar system. Keep up the good work guys. Cheers

A really simple and straightforward quote and a quick install that was everything that was promised, no "extra charges" no arguments or hassles. Was advised on what system was most suitable and then quoted for that system, price was all inclusive and installation was perfect, presented a few options for panel layout and allowed me to make an informed choice. great service and perfect result. Price was also better than some of the big players in the business.

I recently used these guys, fantastic service and no pressure. Prices were competitive and top end products like SMA investors and Canadian Solar panels were choices given amongst other leading brands all suiting my budget. From the sales rep to completion I felt looked after. I knew nothing about Solar and it took awhile for me to understand what was needed, but they were patient and understanding. I would recommend them to anyone.

Used this company recently for a home installation, and felt compelled to write a review as I was very happy with their very professional and prompt service. Both their office and installation team were very easy to deal with. Based on my experience, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.

I researched solar installers for months before coming to the decision to use Solar Smart. I nearly steered away Solar after reading the horror stories form other buyers about installers. From the start Sue at the office was fantastic to deal. The installers turned up right on time, left everything clean and were great to deal with. Chris the electrician did a great job and took the time to explain how the system works. I have only had it in for 5 days and from reading the meter each day to get an understanding I can see how much this 6.6 klw system will save us. The swimming pool is completely offset and as long as you do washing etc during the day, it completely offsets all of these items. As for reliabity it is too early to say but with this top quality system I cannot foresee any problems, just massive savings. I am more than happy to recommend Solar Smart in Maroochydore and have already done so to my friends. Neil Waterman Brisbane

Dealing with these guys was a pleasure. Sue in the office was quick and efficient with her quote and helpful through the initial stages. The guys installing the system obviously knew what they were doing and went out of their way to make sure all was OK with the tiles, and resealing some that had cracks. They were friendly and helpful and I would recommend this company if I was asked to recommend a solar company because of the above and their very competitive pricing. David W

Very good customer service from order to installation. Great price! Sue in the office was fantastic. Installation took about six hours, and they even repaired a few damaged roof tiles. Highly recommended, thanks
