David and Wendy Pickering: Hybrid system

"We had thought about solar power for a long time before recently making the commitment. The discussions with Central West Solar and the quote provided eventually made the decision easy. The hybrid system of mains, solar (4kW) and battery (500AH) that was chosen suits our needs ideally. It combines the benefits of solar and off-peak mains supply, and provides power reserves during mains outages for fridge and freezer as well as the household water pump.
Robert and his team were excellent with their booking of days for installation and the actual procedure was carried out professionally and courteously. Guidance for us to undertake fine tuning of the system via software is being provided.
It is expected that the versatility of the system will make possible substantial savings on mains electricity. In addition to direct savings, having the system in place provides the means to reduce mains usage even further by shifting our energy usage to off peak where possible as well as using stored power in the evenings."

Scott Young: MPower

"Central West Solar has been a customer of M|Power's for more five and a half years. In that time I, as Robert's account manager, have worked very closely with Robert over that time for both grid-connect and off-grid systems.

Robert has proven to be a very loyal customer of M|Power and it is always a pleasure to work with him.

Robert is always across the latest changes to installation guidelines, rebate structures and the latest standards for the sale and installation of renewable energy systems. Robert always impresses me in his depth of understanding of the wide breadth of different technology that is available for this market. In obtaining this knowledge over time Robert has settled on a very sound selection of quality products.

Central West Solar has also been a sub-contract installer for M|Power in the past and the standard of installation is of the highest level. I use photos from these installations as examples of how a correctly and well-presented installation should look, shown to other installers. Robert's strength as an electrical tradesman is his ability to work out solutions to a vast array of challenges that can faced in this market. I would highly recommend Central West Solar as a supplier and installer for any of your renewable energy requirements."

Basil Crayford ( 5kw Hybrid solar power system)

I have had two 6 KW solar systems installed by Central West Solar over the past five years. The first was a roof mounted installation in Orange during the time of the NSW State input subsidy. The second system was recently installed at home just outside of Orange as a ground mounted system . This system was installed with battery storage to make most effective use of the generated electricity as the NSW input subsidy has been removed. Electricity generated during the day when away from home is available at night when returning due to the battery storage. Installation of the system was efficient and delivered on time as promised. The advice on design of the system and readjustment to more effective use of off-peak power was also invaluable. We are eagerly awaiting our next energy account to see just how effective this solar design using battery storage will be in reducing purchased electricity I would have no reservations about recommending CWS to anyone requiring a solar electrical system.

Helen Colman (2.5kw Grid connect system)

"Central West Solar was recommended to me by a friend and I was keen to give my business to local people. They were very professional and prompt at every stage of the project. The installation was performed efficiently and to a high standard. I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend them to anyone considering their own system."
