The right time to invest in solar

We’ve recently renovated our house and started a family so it just seemed like the right time to invest in solar. We’ve never had huge electricity bills but we’ve installed two air conditioners and coming into Summer we will be using more power. Our sales rep Andrew explained everything clearly, answered all our questions, and gave us tips on how to make the most from system. Daniel and his team of installers were great guys. They worked quickly and did a really neat job. - Daniel Dwyer, Mount Gravatt East


The installers were great & very particular!

  I previously installed solar with a different company but I needed to upgrade; we have a fish room which requires more power than our original system could provide alone. The installers were great & very particular. They removed and adjusted the old panels that were on the roof. When I first became interested in a system, Sovereign’s director, Brett, came out to visit me on a Sunday and ran me through the whole process. I’ve been able to reach him whenever I've had a question. - David Taggart, Buderim


Everything was made clear to understand….

I didn’t know previously that having solar meant I can make money by selling electricity back to my provider. Andrew, the consultant I spoke with, made everything clear to understand and I was able to contact him personally with any questions I had about the installation. The installers who came out were really decent guys and I’m impressed with everything about the service I received from Sovereign. - Belinda Robinson, Buderim


Detailed insight into solar!

Our sales consultant Andrew gave a really detailed insight into how we will get the most out of the system and the installers worked fast. The workmanship is really neat and discrete; half of the panels are on our carport so you can’t even see them! - Edmund, Shailer Park


Our bills were getting out of hand…

Rates just seemed to be increasing every few months and our bills were getting out of hand so we knew it was time to jump on solar. We also installed a hot water timer too so we don’t have to worry about using any power for showers. The panels are nice and neat on the roof, you can’t notice them from the street, and they’re producing up to 30kW per day for our use. - Paul Knight, Tivoli


Stellar service from start to finish

  I’m over the moon with the service provided by Sovereign. The consultant, Dave, was really clear on everything, the installers worked quickly and i’m happy with how the panels look. It’s important for us to be able to have the aircon running, especially in Summer, because my wife is sick. Sometimes we need two air conditioners running and the spa bath, and without solar our bills were huge. I can already see our Sovereign solar system is performing great, we’re making huge savings on power. - Graham, Gowrie Junction


Solar lights the way for Alan Finkle’s Clean Energy Target

A review into the future of Australia’s energy market has Australia’s chief scientist, Alan Finkle, recommending energy providers increase the percentage of electricity coming from renewable sources. The changing state of Australia’s energy market, and the subsequent hikes in electricity prices, is creating urgency for Australians to install solar.Finkle proposes that state and federal governments agree to a Clean Energy Target (CET) that aim to see greenhouse gas emissions reduced by 100% by the year 2070. While the proposal means a cleaner, climate-conscious Australia the evolving energy sector is creating instability in the nation’s energy supply.Many of Australia's coal-power stations are decades old and in need of major upgrades to maintain occupational health and safety standards. Energy retail business Engie closed their Hazelwood coal plant in April 2017 with plans to shift its focus to renewable energy sources.“The closure of Hazelwood is in line with ENGIE’s strategy to gradually end its coal activities.This is laid out in the Group’s transformation plan that aims at concentrating solely on low-carbon projects for power generation, renewable energy and natural gas,” Engie said in a statement.Hazelwood isn’t the first of Victoria’s coal energy provider’s to collapse, with Energy Brix shutting its plant in 2014, and the state is set to see further inflation of electricity prices.Gavin Dufty, spokesperson for St Vincent de Paul, said the public can expect to be faced with up to $300 extra on their annual electricity and gas bills.“Victoria has had relative price stability for the last two years [...]


My experience with Sovereign has been great!

I rent out the upstairs of my house so as a household we use a lot of power. I installed solar as a way to save money and my experience with Sovereign has been great! I’m happy with the workmanship the installers did and everybody in the office was really helpful. - Luke Nijdam, Nathan


Jim was really sincere and he explained everything in detail so I really trusted Sovereign

I like to be as self-sufficient as possible and using power from the sun is much better for the environment than the other alternatives - if I can save money at the save time then that’s great! When I was contacted by Jim I felt he was really sincere and he explained everything in detail so I really trusted Sovereign. The installers were careful in their work and my system is performing well. - Ralph Schier, Boondal
