Cost-effective solutions

Our role is to design and build a high quality commercial solar PV system that is designed to last. We do not take the easiest option when it comes to the installation nor do we use low-cost electrical sundries as part of our installation.  We are risk-averse hence we want your PV system to yield immediate savings and to continue to generate ongoing savings uninterrupted. We provide this under our strong customer-based service philosophy – excellence and accountability in all aspects of solar PV system design and installation.

How do we approach commercial solar solutions?

We plan well, that’s how! Your solar requirements are met with:

  • an initial onsite solar design consultation with our design and technical team
  • analysis and advice on your power usage and billing arrangements
  • a competitive quote for a fully supplied and installed solar PV system to match your specific requirements
  • a professional managed installation project
  • clear communications throughout
  • face-to-face walkthrough and a comprehensive warranty and owner manual
  • incorporated system monitoring services

Warranties – It’s About You

A lot of solar retailers like to focus on the manufacturers’ product warranties for solar panels and inverters, however there is much more to it and we want you to know what it is.

A bit about warranties
  • Almost all solar products used here in Australia are manufactured overseas. If the solar retail & installation company has purchased your solar equipment direct from the overseas manufacturer, which many of the big national solar companies do, then there is a huge warranty liability at play. In simple terms, there is no local warranty support should the solar retail company fold. We buy all of our solar equipment through authorised solar wholesale companies here in Australia.
  • Our business clients get a ‘no questions asked’ GENUINE  all of system 5-year workmanship warranty with us. No matter what the fault nor the issue, there is no blame game with us. With a coverage area between Port Macquarie and Yamba, no site is more than a 1.5 hour drive away which means a quick turn-around on any warranty claim or inspection request.
  • National solar companies use contractors for their installation. These contractors have no tie to the retail firm hence you will have a protracted and delayed response to any call-out or warranty claim requests.

Commercial Solar Energy, is a division of Coffs Solar Energy based on the mid-North Coast of NSW. We are a well established solar energy company with a warehouse, office and showroom based in Coffs Harbour, and we welcome your visit at any time during the week.

What is our workmanship warranty on our commercial solar installations?

Our workmanship warranty covers you for five years for any claim related to the solar installation. We offer an immediate resolution to any queries or issues you may have. A workmanship or warranty claim can be directed to our team based by email, phone or visiting our office at 26B Isles Drive, Coffs Harbour.

As a division of Coffs Solar Energy, Coffs Harbour’s number 1 solar installer, we’ve earned ourselves a reputation for providing trustworthy advice, quality products and exceptional service. Our T&Cs are not written in fine print or legal jargon, and our warranty covers you for the operation of your solar PV system, including workmanship and all componentry, for the full period of five years. We do not use subcontractor installation teams. Our solar installers are employed by the company and we are very proud of their professionalism, work ethic and accountability to their colleagues, the company, our clients and the community.

We are also a CEC Approved Solar Retailer – a voluntary accreditation not many solar businesses sign up for. This accreditation is only awarded to companies that meet the CEC’s strict code of conduct and we are proud to be one of the first solar companies in Australia to be a signatory.
Commercial Solar Energy is a local, accountable and straight-talking Coffs Harbour based business, and we are extremely proud of our customer service and quality solar installations delivered by our team for our valued customers on the Mid North Coast.

What are the product warranties of our panel and inverter range?

Commercial Solar Energy uses only Australian-based distributors of all solar system components and equipment used in our solar system installations. We do not engage with direct offshore purchasing arrangements from foreign suppliers. This means you are covered under Australian Consumer Law now and into the future for any product or performance warranty enquiries you might have – we are here to assist.

Our manufacturers include the following warranty periods:
• panels – 25 years linear performance warranty and 15-year FULL product warranty. That’s product and labour covered for 15 years!
• inverters – 10 years FULL product warranty.
• mounting system – 10 years product warranty and 5 years limited finish warranty

Custom Designed

No two solar PV system designs are the same! We understand that each business is different – your day-to-day operations, the size of your electricity bill, your location, roof aspect, buildings & infrastructure, and your plans for the future. This means what you need from your solar PV system can be very different to that of neighbouring businesses or industry colleagues.

Our Approach

Our approach is to assess your requirements, provide expert advice, and work with you to determine the best solution to meet your needs. We do this with a professional approach to design and installation considerations, flexible solutions and competitive pricing.

Do you need your commercial solar PV system to:
  • Maximise solar generation from the moment it’s turned on?
  • Be expandable for future business needs?
  • Provide live monitoring and reporting capabilities?
  • Involve hassle-free maintenance?
  • Look good!

Maybe you want all of the above, or maybe just some of these elements are important to you. It’s our job to find the ideal solution for you.

What you can expect

Once your solar PV system has been confirmed, you can expect well-prepared plans to be put in place without fuss.

  • Confirmed installation date and time as agreed with you,
  • polite and efficient tradesmen to turn up on time at your premises,
  • a tidy site left upon completion, and prompt follow up in the commissioning of your system.

We are proud of what we do – and happy to show off that others think we are good at what we do as well!


Solar PV systems include technological and electrical equipment, and once installed need to be connected to our local electricity network. This is operated by Essential Energy. We support you through the procedure involved in swapping or reconfiguring your utility meter to allow this to take place.

What our Post Installation Service Involves

Our service also involves establishing wireless and or network connected system monitoring. This is straightforward for our IT-trained technicians and once set up, you can then refer to your solar PV system’s records at any time.

Any queries in the future? We are just a phone call or visit away if needed.

Your warranty documentation and user manual is also promptly supplied upon completion of your system installation.
