Over the past few years there’s been a huge uptake of solar power systems in Australia, something which has been due to the generous government rebates, the feed in tariffs, and of course, to the very large increases in our power bills.
The majority of people who have opted for solar power have been residential customers as the cost of the investment against the returns have been exceptional. Currently most customers are getting between 20% and 25% return for their money, and in some cases even more.
Three years ago solar systems were out of reach for businesses because of the high outlay against the returns, but with product prices falling sharply over that period, added to the rising cost of electricity, we have now got to a point where not installing a solar system does not make financial sense to your business.
Halcol Energy have teamed up with a reputable financial company to offer great deals on their commercial solar systems. Packages can be arranged with no upfront expense based over a 5 year period on a lease purchase agreement. These arrangements can be fully amortised, which means at the end of the 5 year term the system is paid for outright. On top of this, the repayments are fully tax deductable. The repayments are fixed so you do not have to worry on how to budget for the annual increase in the electricity costs. After the next round of increases coupled with the introduction of the carbon tax, we expect that the repayments will be on a par with the cost of your electricity bills.
All businesses should be making the most of this now. It could be the best investment you will ever make.
After looking at a number of Solar Energy Company's to purchase Solar Panels, we went with Halco Energy on the Sunshine Coast.
- Had a problem with installation, wrongly wired
- Having fault issues with Sungrow Inverter
- Customer service not the greatest
Just letting you know!!!
What fantastic value and service...have used Halco Energy several times now to purchase solar panels. Each time they have been prompt and helpful to fulfill my house & families requirements. Found the staff extremely easy to deal with. Thanks Andy, Sam and Alex appreciate everything you have done.
We have just had installed our second Halcol Solar System to our second house we have just purchased and are very happy with it. The crew that installed it were very professional and friendly. The staff at Halcol were very help full and Tony (our Rep) was very easy to work with. He was very patient with me. The system that we fitted has wifi capability. It can be monitored with your mobile phone, tablet or computer. Halcol can also monitor your progress. I would highly recommend Halcol if you are in the market for a solar system. We checked out the opposition with all there cheaper deals but found the quality of the Halcol product and service rose above all the others. Pete Jones Minyama
I've known Halcol Energy for close on 6 years and have always found them to be professional.
Stability in business has proved to be difficult so it's comforting to know that Halcol has grown and is still growing.
I would recommend them to anyone who wants to install a quality system backed by a quality business.

Highly recommend using Halcol Energy, they were professional and so efficient. From the first telephone call to the finished installation, we had no problems and would definitely tell everyone to use them. And a local company too.
Have only had our 5kw/18 panel system up for less than a week so can't comment other than to say it's certainly working well and pumping out the energy. Still waiting for Energex to do their bit so we can start getting the credits but to be honest our main concern is using the power ourselves. Have found Halcol very friendly and efficient to deal with from the salesman, Tony, through to Tim & Alex who did the install. Happy to recommend them.
Halcol have been most accommodating as the solar was being put into a currently rented house that was also have the roof repainted. They fitted in with the painters and tenants. Really appreciated. The price was very competitive and the staff always pleasant.
I had a 5kw system installed by Halcol over 18months ago. I was really impressed by the salesman who was informative and answered all my many questions. Installation was prompt and efficient. Click Energy was recommended for power provider I thought I'd wait and see if all was as good as expected
My solar power has been even better than promised. I have not had a power bill since installation. I use the aircon daily in summer and heating nightly in winter.
I took me a few years to decide to get solar. I wanted to see who were the 'stayers' after the first rush! I'd recommend people do it NOW. Crazy not to. An under $5k outlay for no more power bills is well worth it
Initial purchase and installation tops, however we required panels removed and replaced to facilitate roof repairs and repainting two years later. Not good, won't go into details here, suffice to say disorganised, non-competitive in price and lacking adequate on-site safety and customer considerations. Had to complain and then still experienced what seemed to be a lack of coordination in service activities. Hoping no one else has to go through similar.
Halcol have installed new lights and a large and efficient solar power system. Throughout, all team members have been polite, punctual and professional. I recommend them wholeheartedly for any electrical work.
