Solar Guide is the smarter way to find trustworthy installers operating in your area.

We match your requirements with pre-screened and consumer rated companies to ensure you're only contacted by professional organisations that are registered and approved by relevant industry bodies.

Unlike many companies we actively manage our own database and regularly vet, monitor, approve and reject contractors based on a strict criteria of demanding standards including minimum levels of feedback and industry required registrations.

It's Free and Easy

Once you've completed the quote request form we check our database of registered traders and match your job with 3 carefully selected businesses who will in turn contact you to arrange a quotation.

We take the hassle out of finding a suitable company that can complete your job for a price that you're happy with, in some cases saving you up to 75% by comparing quotes.
