Platinum Rated Supplier

Andy and his team are amazing!! When Andy came to house to discuss our solar needs, he had already been monitoring where the sun was on our roof for a few days. So he knew exactly where the best place was to install the solar panels. From start to finish they were very professional and only too happy to answer any questions we had. The customer and after sales service is amazing and the best I have seen in a long time. We would highly recommend them to anyone l!!! Thank you so much.

Bill & Melinda

Customer service isn’t dead while these guys are still in business

My off-grid system shut down on me and the original installer wanted nothing to do with it. Ahlec sorted out what I needed, and had it up and running again as quickly as could be expected. This included upgrading the system with more panels, and putting in a SMA inverter system. It was all done, and up and running in two days. Brilliant!

They also sorted out the best way to charge my electric van without damaging the house batteries and set the whole thing up for me.
The whole experience was a real eye-opener, and they are a really great bunch of people to deal with. I can’t recommend them enough.

Chris

Ahlec were very wonderful and their customer service could not be beat. I’m so happy with their service and price.

Scott

I had searched the Internet for reviews of installers, particularly after what appeared to be an overpriced quote from another installer. The reviews I found about Ahlec encouraged me to contact them. I asked Ahlec to provide a rough quote on exactly the same panels and inverter as the other company. Austin got back to me quickly and even sent by email a complete quote (subject to site visit). His quote was over $4000 less than the other! I arranged for Austin to come to my house and was impressed with his knowledge and manner and gave him the go ahead.
The installation was completed yesterday and the installers even repaired a faulty ceiling fan switch. They replaced the switch mechanism rather than the fan and control rather than the controller plus fan that has been done in the past by two other electricians. Can’t praise these guys enough!

Norm

Austin Eccleston and installation team from Ahlec did everything that could be asked of them. This was our third house were we’ve had PV panels installed so we had some experience! and experiences! Go Ahlec.

Richard

Fantastic process from start to finish. Were professional from the start and very friendly and not pushy. I highly recommend this company.

Rohan & Joanna

Sam & co. installed a 6.6Kw hybrid system on my place a couple of weeks. I couldn’t have been more please with the service. During the free quote, Sam thoroughly explained the installation and grid link up process, including the time frames and fees associated.
The installation was very efficiently and neatly undertaken. Sam set up all the wifi connection and phone tracking app, with a full explanation ready to go! I can’t wait to get Sam back to install a battery!
Many thanks Ahlec!

Tony
Great service, on-time & on budget. Friendly & reliable family business. Thanks, heaps.
Tanya Schramm

Everything went well, No issues at all.

Aaron Gregg

Really impressed with AHLEC’s level of service. Andy from AHLEC visited our property and guided us through the options, answered all of our questions and explained really well how the new system was going to work for us. Sam & his team arrived promptly and installed the new solar system as well as LED lighting. Really neat work no complaints at all. Also set up the solar system so that we can see it working on our mobile phones.
Really pleased AHLEC thank you.

Wes Rogers

AHLEC has done an excellent job quoting, installing and setting up our Solar Power System. They are always happy to help with any queries and always been prompt and efficient. The Panels, Inverter and installation are of top quality. From our initial consultation to the finished product the AHLEC team has helped us all the way. Now we are in our second billing quarter with our electronic meters fitted so we now get the feed in tariff the savings are quite amazing. We are saving in excess of 80% of our previous power costs. This system is everything they said it would be.
We are extremely happy with the entire experience and would recommend AHLEC without hesitation.

Bradford Armstrong

Again, thanks to Andy and his sons for a great job. They came in at short notice and organised everything, from removing the old system to installing a completely new system. I am extremely confidant in recommending them to anyone.

Steve Martin

Thank you Sam and team for a great installation. Fantastic communication. Highly recommend to anyone looking at getting solar.

Sarah Watts

Thanks guys, you truly saved our lives. Reliable, honest, knowledgeable, and prompt. Communication 10/10.
I could not recommend this company more.

Lilith Martin

When deciding to go with solar energy I was cautious, so I sourced 5 different quotes. AHLEC was the 5th quote I got and I’m glad I got them out. Austin was good at explaining solar systems simply and honestly. The team that installed the system was professional and efficient. No mess was left behind. I would absolutely recommend Andy’s branch of AHLEC for solar installation as a competitively priced competent, efficient and professional family-owned company.

Thank you Andy and your team.
All the best

Michael Ruutz

Easy as 1, 2, 3
Austin was extremely helpful, without being pushy. Described what Ahlec could no for us, and advised his thoughts for our situation.
He even went through our power bills and gave us tips on how to best use the solar system
The installation guys were great. They even moved our electric box around the corner which allowed the inverter and the box to be hidden from a first impression view!
A great experience, with zero stress. Highly recommended!

Kaz Armet

I did a lot of research before choosing Ahlec. Once you get past all the deals, holidays and rebate offers from others what we wanted was quality and reliability. Ahlec ticked all the boxes and did a fantastic job.
Ahlec also have an amazing installation team that work all day in the heat and humidity, drink copious amounts of fluids but NEVER ask to use your toilet. Andy the owner said this is all part of the training. My wife has asked if I can attend the next training session.

Dean Francis

Ahlec have been fantastic right from the start. They are on time, polite and very supportive. Their work is first class and they do everything to try and help you right through the full process. We would strongly recommend them to anyone thinking of installing solar power.

Kim Jorgensen

We had the team from Ahlec install our system last week, and we couldn’t be happier with the product or the service. We met with Austin several times to determine the right system for us (not just the most expensive one) and so far it has outperformed his estimated output.
The installation team arrived on time and took great care, with the final product not only working great but looking great also.
Highly recommend!

Glen Barlow

Very happy with a 6.6kw system installed by Ahlec. Thru the whole process their staff were very professional. Took care in the install.

Chris Street

Customer service at its very very best!!

This is a saga but bear with me as this is customer and after-sales service at its very very best!

My solar journey began with 3 quotes. Ahlec’s wasn’t the cheapest..or the dearest, but I knew from meeting Austin that I wouldn’t go wrong getting him to install my system. He was patient, explained what would happen, how it all worked and he assured me he would be there through the whole process and beyond. I accepted his quote.

I cannot express my gratitude enough to Austin and his team for their care and support through this whole process.

All I can do is post this review to inform everyone who is looking for an honest supportive solar company, to look no further, you have found who you are looking for.

Alice Collins

Fantastic service! My off-grid system shut down, and these guys couldn’t do enough to get me up and running again. Including sorting out the best way to charge my electric car off the solar without damaging my batteries. Always just a phone call away. Brilliant!

Chris Barclay

The team AHLEC Solar are first class and the quality of workmanship is second to none. We installed a fully off-grid system and Andy Provided a wealth of information and honest advice without the sales pitch. What we loved the most is the team installing are all AHLEC guys…. no subbies or salesman. Just the locally owned and operated family business. Support Local.

Melynda Simpson

The AHLEC Solar team was great. Super efficient, they were able to fit us in on a tight schedule and we didn’t have to worry about paperwork because they were already on top of it. Great price and awesome team 🙂

Melinda Caldwell

We found both Andy & his son Sam to be very helpful and honest in options available with Solar panels and inverters. They are always obliging and available for further enquiries and back up service. The workmanship quality was great and the time frame in supply and installation was good.

Colleen & David Gherashe

We recently engaged Ahlec Solar to install a 6.5 kw solar system on our new home in Thornlands, Brisbane. In all our dealings with Andy Hall at Ahlec, we found them to be highly professional, extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. Our new system comprises only quality components and the installation was performed promptly following our placement of the order. The installation team was very professional and completed the job in less than half a day.

Ken Westgarth

I can’t recommend the Ahlec team highly enough. We take our time with making decisions and do a lot of research in the meantime. Austin had no problems with this at all, he would answer my many questions promptly and always have honest answers. When it came to having the system installed the lads were on time, polite and very efficient.
Now our system is all up and running and we don’t have to pay for electricity again.
Awesome work, thanks again

Michelle Graham

Excellent service and the guys saved a sugar glider from the back of our metre box.

Jodie Hartz
Great work, great customer service, super happy with the product, would definitely recommend!
Olivia Houllis
Austin and his team were fantastic. When starting this process, AHLEC Solar were the only ones that offered to come to the property and give us a quote in person. I was very happy with how quickly it all happened, other companies were telling us 6-8wks but AHLEC were here within the week installing our system after putting in the order.
Austin, you and your team helped make this process a pleasant one and I will definitely recommend your services on.
Emily Park

Ahlec were excellent to deal with- from our first contact with their consultant Austin to their very efficient installers. Would highly recommend them for anyone wishing to install solar.

Mike Primmer

We are very happy with the professional and quality installation of our 6.5kw system. From the initial quote by Austin and our follow up questions, everything was explained clearly and simply. When installing the system, we had further questions regarding the panel layout and number of strings. Sam and the team were very helpful in discussing the options and answering our questions. Post install, Austin visited twice to assist with the app set up and power monitoring and nothing was too much of a bother.A great local company who provides teriffic after sales support and does what they say they will do in a timely and professional manner.

Rk Hoy

We recently had Ahlec Solar and Electrical install a 12 kW solar system on our roof. The entire Ahlec team were fantastic and did everything from pre-installation to system completion. It was a very professional installation and their attention to detail was excellent. We look forward to many years of Ahlec’s quality customer service in maintaining our system.

David Shepley

Approachable, informative, prompt and professional. Custom built our off grid system with great communication and knowledge. Travelled distance to our property, and are available and personable for backup service.

Cora Becker

So helpful through every step of the process. Great team to deal with.

Donna Morse

Solar and battery was installed by a great team who kept me informed and answered lots of questions! Once installed the system was up and running and has been functioning ever since. I would highly recommend Ahlec!

Sarah Hutchinson

Very happy with the service and the price. Everything went smoothly and the team were very nice. I have shopped around and think I have gotten a very good deal.

Don Levin

Overall, we were impressed with AHLEC’s attention to detail and professionalism from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else in the market looking for competitive solar systems on the Sunshine Coast.

Austin from AHLEC Electrical & Solar was especially prompt in providing us a detailed quote as well as answering all of our relevant follow up questions. On installation day, Sam from AHLEC arrived on time and ran us through the installation process. Even though there were some structural challenges in getting to the switchboard, Sam and his team were able to problem solve the situation and successfully complete our installation to a level of which we were extremely satisfied.

Charlie Carter

Satisfaction, communication and customer service from sales, installation and I have peace of mind now it’s up and running the team at Ahlec are only a phone call away if I need to question anything, because pride in service from a family base shines bright.
I know I won’t be left in the dark. Something so hard to find in business now days…
Thanks guys

Brian Hankinson

Hey mate, just to let you know how happy Jill and myself are with the off grid solar supplied and installed by your company.We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome as it far exceeds our expectations. You and your employees were a pleasure to deal with as nothing was too much trouble, both in explaining the system functions and installation.Understanding that we had a minor issue in the beginning, your promptness in the rectification required was immediate and 1st class, I would have no problem recommending your company to anyone interested.

Trevor Kelloway

I would thoroughly recommend AHLEC. Out of all the sales people we spoke to, Andy and Austin really knew their stuff. There was no pushiness and they were very patient in answering all our questions. I have been tracking the solar production with the app and it looks like the savings are going to be great!

Natalie

With our unusual roof design the most we could fit was a 3.3 kilowatt system.
Austin went to a lot of trouble to show us the most cost effective way to put the maximum amount of kilowatts on our roof. Thanks for the good work.
We would recommend him to anyone.
Thanks again
Ron Logan

Ron

I was extremely impressed with the level of customer service by Austin and also the two young guys installing the system. The job was done very promptly and with a minimum of disruption and fuss. Would highly recommend this company.

Robyn

It was just over a year since we have had the solar panels installed and are extremely happy with the results.
We have been so pleased with the service and follow-up that we have recommended the company to friends.

David & Bev

Great guys, completed the install on short notice and did a nice neat job. Great customer service.

Luke

I got 3 quotes decided on Ahlec their price was the middle of the 3 prices.
Sam and his team arrived did a great job cleaned up everything before they left really impressed with Ahlec from start to finish.
Would have no problem recommending them for a solar install.

Paul

Sam and the Ahlec team installed a 6.6kW system for me about 12 months ago. Everything from the pre-sale advice to the post sale follow-up was excellent. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the system, and considering my quarterly electricity bill is now almost zero, I’m well on my way towards the system paying for itself!

Anthony

A great family owned Queensland company who I was told about by a very good friend who also had a large solar system installed by them.
From top to bottom this company oozes integrity, professionalism and total respect to each other and their client.
No question was too simple (particularly from my point of view) so every one down to the smallest detail was answered.
The follow up service they have offered to me is second to none.
I feel truly honoured by what this company has done for me.

Val

Austin was very helpful from the initial appointment as well as follow up emails as requested, nothing was a problem for him.
The Brothers (Installers) were very efficient and again nothing was a problem for them. Since it was such a hot day it was pretty amazing that 3 brothers could work together so harmoniously and not have one fight throughout the day. (not that I heard anyway)
Andy the owner of the business and Father of the boys followed up the next day to see if all was ok. Andy is a calm relaxed operator.

Lex

They fitted the wrong inverter, but did not argue when I contacted them. They promptly fitted the more expensive inverter the next week. Very pleasant people to deal with and fitted the system immediately after finance was approved.

Noel

From start to finish it was a fantastic experience, very professional and pleasant from a family base company with an eye for detail. Friendly, reliable and on time. A pleasure to deal with.

Austin was very helpful and informative he gave all the facts we needed for an informed decision. He never tried to oversell the product and we never felt rushed or pressured.

The installation was completed on the day Ahlec said it would be.
The installation team were great – very polite, helpful and knowledgeable when working here on a very hot day, leaving everything clean and tidy.
A pleasure to deal with and would definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone.

Lesley

They were great, corrected a couple of small problems with prompt attention.

Anon

Prompt, friendly, efficient service. Installers were knowledgeable and helpful and gave quick, friendly response to my phone calls/queries. Their quote was the most viable for the system I finally decided on. I have only had the system for a week but so far am very happy with it.

Maria

What a fantastic experience from start to finish. Family base company that has a eye for detail. Friendly, reliable and on time. A pleasure to deal with, definitely use them again. Thanks Andy & Boys

Tanya

They were knowledgeable and patient. Genuinely interested in the system that best suited our usage. No hard sell hassle. On top of that, they matched the lower of the three quotes.
Great service, highly recommended.

Tim

Austin the Sales Rep was fantastic and obliging by making a return visit, in his own time to explain the advantages of going solar. Great service. The installation crew were very prompt, efficient and friendly. Great work boys.

Judith

This is our second install with Ahlec. Once again we got honest and clear advice, no trying to up-sell something that wasn’t right for us. Good value, good quality, and above and beyond service. Took time to explain things and make sure everything working and tidy, including our connection to see our system performance and monitors this and checks in to make sure we are happy with how the system is performing. We have recommended to friends who have also been really well looked after.

Jenni

From start to finish the whole process went very smoothly we found the company to be very efficient and professional a pleasant experience from start to finish we highly recommend this business.

JustineQLD

From the start to the finish Alhec have been great. Austin gave me a quote on photos and then when I made my decision he came out to confirm and answer my question. On the day Sam and his team were great, left Sam to do the job, he called me when he was finished and went over the installation and how it worked. Glad I choose Ahlec.

MichaelQLD

Overall, we were impressed with AHLEC’s attention to detail and professionalism from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else in the market looking for competitive solar systems on the Sunshine Coast.

We ordered a 7.5 kw system from Ahlec after comparing all the quotes provided by Solarquotes. Each company came out and provided very clear and professional information regarding a system that would meet our needs. Austin from AHLEC Electrical & Solar was especially prompt in providing us a detailed quote as well as answering all of our relevant follow up questions. On installation day, Sam from AHLEC arrived on time and ran us through the installation process. Even though there were some structural challenges in getting to the switchboard, Sam and his team were able to problem solve the situation and successfully complete our installation to a level of which we were extremely satisfied.

Thank you Austin for visit today. We have saved $100 off our bill including the current bill just with your phone call advice to Origin. I really appreciate the honest appraisal today and will be singing your praises to everyone. Last time we got solar I know of at least 3 people who also purchased on my recommendations.
MickPE Teacher St Thomas More Primary School

I have to say that I went with AHLEC based on the best price and value for money on a quality system. The level of service was top notch – the install was done with no fuss and the guys explained exactly how I can get the best out of my system. Would recommend them to anyone.

PhilCaloundra

We have just used AHLEC for the second time, to install a 5kw system at our new house. I like to deal with Andy because he really knows his stuff and has a way of explaining things in a really simple and straightforward way. These guys are really great to deal with from start to finish.
