Mark has extensive experience in the retail industry having previously worked previously as an estimator and also a sales manager for a large building supply company in the UK. Mark moved with his wife to Coffs Harbour in 2009 and entered the renewable energy industry by taking on a role as an operations manager for a large start-up solar hot water company.

    When you want the best in quality, professional installation and importantly SERVICE, there is only 1 company that is worth dealing with, COFFS SOLAR ENERGY. It has been a couple of months now and I can honestly say everything that Mark proposed that the new system would deliver, it has and more. Installation team were on time, precise, and very professional. Back up service and communication was outstanding and the performance has been better than expected. It is comforting knowing that our electricity bills are now a thing of the past.Thanks Mark and your team of professionals, in and out of the office. Absolutely Bloody Brilliant.!!

    This is exactly the sort of competent, considerate, polite, and thorough organisation one needs in a field like solar energy. They know what they are doing, and go about it in a most professional manner. They have partnered with internationally recognised equipment manufacturers to give the very best value for money in this competitive field. Coffs Solar puts marginal and fly-by-night solar companies to shame by setting and living up to the highest standards.

    We recently had a solar panel system installed by Coffs Solar Energy. We were very impressed with the support we received from start to finish. The installation process and expected benefits were clearly explained to us, and the installation team arrived on the agreed date and carried out the work in a very professional manner. Thanks to Adam, Jai and his team. I would highly recommend Coffs Solar Energy.

    Coffs Solar were a fantastic company to deal with from start to finish, I really appreciated their ability to provide advice from all levels of company and any questions were answered promptly. It is also a great aspect of a company that anyone in the office was able to comment on our system so we didn’t have to wait for someone to return from leave etc to get and answer. We were recommended them ourselves and I would happily provide same service if asked in future myself.

    Coffs Solar Energy were professional from the start to the finish of our solar system installation. We had various options provided to us and the advice given was clearly explained. In the interim, we had our roof painted and they were very accommodating, even incorporating a site visit during that timeframe. The team work together well to achieve the customer's best outcome and satisfaction. We are very happy with their service and product. It looks great too.

    Understanding the viability of installing a solar system is the first step .The biggest impediment to this is who can you trust to provide this information.Mark was able to demystify this for me with a easy to follow blog which explained the science and the cost reward benefits.The team at Coffs Solar are professional and their installation team are first class.From the start to the finish everything they said they said they would do did, when they said the would. .I have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his team.

    Right from the start my experience was a pleasant one. The staff were both friendly and knowledgeable. With some existing knowledge and experience with solar myself, I appreciated the technical knowledge of the staff. The installation was done promptly and in an extremely neat manner. I was particularly impressed with the thoroughness & neatness of the electrical installation. All components of the system are top quality. All electrical components were labeled in a tidy & comprehensive manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Coffs Solar Energy to anyone who is looking for a quality installation done by professional, knowledgeable & friendly staff.

    Great technical advice and strong communication skills by all staff. The solar panel installation time was very timely and ahead of schedule. Assistance to set up solar panel performance monitoring was a challenge however hands on help made the process more effective. Looking forward to achieving the identified reduction in power costs.

    If you haven't got Solar you're throwing money away. Mark and his team from Coffs Solar installed our system a month ago and the return has been much higher than I expected. The online tracking of spending, saving and electricity we are using is awesome I didn't think I'd bother much with it but I check it everyday. The team were quick clean and very helpful. I highly recommend Coffs Solar go with a local and give them a call.

    We contacted Coffs Solar for a quote on a solar system and from then on everything went on plan until completion. For us this "no stress" operation was just what we wanted. All completed on time and our energy Company finished the project by installing the appropriate meter.That Coffs Solar Energy was a local Company influenced our ultimate decision.

    I can highly recommend Coffs Solar Energy. They were very professional to work with and provided us with a solar solution that best fitted our needs and backed that up with clear information on the performance and installation of the panels. They also configured the panels to provide the most efficient power output during late afternoon shade. If you are looking at installing a solar system, you will be very happy with Coffs Solar Energy.

The installers were on site and without fuss or bother had the job done absolutely professionally. No mess left and no hassles for us.A job well done and at a price that We were most satisfied with.Congratulations Coffs Solar.
