Chatswood resident testimonial

Alan and his wife Maleka live in a townhouse in Chatswood and recently installed a 5.2kWh solar system through Council's Solar Bulk Buy program.

'Couldn't be happier with our solar install! We were very impressed with the options provided by the supplier and the detail of the quote. They looked at a number of options for the panels across our 3 roofs, explained the different inverter options and were easy to understand. The install was completed in a day and the final conversion from our electricity supplier was fast and painless. 

We had been meaning to install solar for many years due to our belief in the importance of renewable energy to reducing our carbon footprint. The Willoughby Council Bulk Buy scheme provided the impetus for us to finally do it. We have moved to using washing machine, dishwasher etc. during the day when we have surplus energy and our energy bill is now negligible!'
