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 3-5 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 possible.
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 our jobs – not the cheapest contractor in the market. Our installers are managed by Graham Montgomery, a long term employee of LJW and qualified electrical supervisor with over 35 years experience in commercial and industrial project management. 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 and Trina 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.
