Solar Power lets you reduce your power bill AND save the environment.
A company you can trust...
LJW Solar is a third generation Solar company with over 25 years experience. If you are looking for solar power in Sydney, you have found the right company.
LJW Solar is highly unique in the solar
field with a history in solar installation in Sydney as far back as 1982. Our history
includes thousands of successful installations and satisfied customers throughout NSW.
Most solar companies are recent startups
that have been created in the last few years to take advantage of the recent
government incentives. Very few
companies are older than 2-3 years. A
handful are perhaps a decade old but even this is uncommon. LJW, on the other
hand, has been installing solar power since 1982. This makes it one of the
oldest solar companies in Australia.
You are getting the most reliable choice
LJW has built a reputation around several
core values and competencies:
- Technical excellence
- A high standard of ethics
- Highest product quality
- Wide range of skills including
offgrid and ongrid
- Support before, during and
after the installation process.
What this means for
you is that you have a company you can trust.
You can trust us to offer the right advice.
We speak with people every day who are just calling in to check how the systems
work, what the government is doing, what might change in the industry, and if
it is a good idea for them. You can be
assured of honest advice, not a sales pitch.
You can trust that we know what we are
talking about. We pride ourselves on our level of knowledge in products – how
they work and what they can do for you.
This knowledge extends throughout our company, not just our technical
and installation staff. Our sales and customer support staff are amongst the
most educated in the industry. We encourage this through ongoing in-house training
and professional development.
You can trust us to install the job
professionally. We use our own staff for most jobs – not the cheapest
contractor in the market. Our installers
are managed by Nick Williams, the 3rd generation of Williams in this
business, and himself a qualified electrican and installer. We have a reputation in the industry for
quality materials and workmanship.
You can trust that we’ll be here. There is no doubt that the solar industry is
following a boom and bust cycle due to the appearance of rebates for customers
a few years ago (thus lowering the upfront
cost of systems for home owners) and the introduction of feed in tariffs
in various states in 2010. The upfront
assistance is reducing, and the feed in tariffs
are being pulled back. This means that many companies that started
because of this new “feeding frenzy” have closed down as the market has shifted
back to a quieter state. LJW has existed long before this boom, and will
continue for long after. This is largely due to being stable in other related
areas that have not experience this roller coaster cycle - for example, a high proportion of our
business comes from Stand Alone Power. This
means that you can rest assured we will be around for many years, and if you
have questions or you need to upgrade your system, we will be here to help. In
fact, we are also helping homeowners who have bought from other companies with
services such as safety audits and cleaning.
You can trust us to only offer the best
equipment. There is a world of choice when it comes to solar panels and
inverters. Because the industry is
growing globally, there is a huge number of new manufacturers starting up to
take advantage of the potential new market. Many of these are competing solely
based on price, with consequences that may not be known for years to come. LJW
has chosen to offer Suntech panels, because of their world leading technology
and reputation in the market.
You can trust that we will always be
learning. As new technologies become available, we will investigate them and
offer them if they pass our rigourous testing and quality criteria. The next few years should see some interesting
developments in terms of materials and technology. LJW is also a leader in
developing solutions. For example, we have recently developed and patented a
new fire safety product that can be used by fire services throughout Australia
to minimise the risks to homes in the case of a fire.
