The first step is for us to take a look at your home. We can then assess which solar power system is best suited to your home, and if it can be fitted to the sunniest side of your house. We can do this either on-site or by viewing your property through satellite images online.
Once you’ve signed the Purchase Agreement, First Choice Solar will complete your paperwork to ensure your grid connection is approved.
This is the day when your physical system will be installed. Depending on your system’s size and location, it shouldn’t take more than a day.
An independent assessor from your electricity distributor will check the system to allow it to be activated and interact with the grid.
You are now connected and enjoying solar power thanks to your smart energy choice.
You've Got The Questions, We've Got The Answers
First Choice Solar has been servicing South East QLD, Northern NSW and the Sunshine Coast since 2010.
No, First Choice Solar use their own full time, fully qualified & CEC accredited installers to carry out all work.
All Consultations and site appraisals are carried out by qualified electricians and CEC accredited designers.
Grid connect systems , often located in built up areas, supply solar electricity through an inverter directly to the household and to the electricity grid if the system is providing more energy than the house needs. When power is supplied to the mains grid, the home owner usually receives a credit or a payment for that electricity. This is called a feed in tariff .
Solar panels will produce power facing any direction, however the efficiency will vary depending on orientation of the panels to the sun. All our sales staff are CEC accredited designers and will provide a custom design solution to suit your specific needs.
We recommend having the inverter out of direct sunlight and in a well ventilated area where possible, and will always do all we can to meet customers requests
Solar panels take light from the sun and make electricity. Solar hot water systems take heat from the sun and heat water. It is easy to remember:

Excellent friendly service, very prompt and efficient repairs to our 7 year old system. Fault was diagnosed and repaired within 24 hours, we would happily recommend First Choice Solar to repair existing systems or install new ones,
Customer service from ellie was fantastic from start to finish, technicans arrived today and installed everything within 2 hours. very professional and helpful, would highly recommend them to anyone looking for solar panels.
You would find it very difficult to find a more capable and professional company to do your installation. We were so pleased with the service we got that we recommended First Choice Solar to our friends down the road who are now waiting for their installation to happen.
Peter & Matt, thank you both for making the entire transition over to Solar stress free. I really appreciated the time you took to truly understand my needs and I couldn’t be more happy with the end results. However what I’m most impressed with is seeing the massive cost reduction in my first electricity bill. Got to love QLD sunshine!
