Vernon was fantastic to deal with! After the first company I chose to install my solar lost their accreditation with Vic Solar, I found another. But after even more research I felt like I'd been sold on the quality of the panels (not the racking or invertor). Plus, there was constant hassle and call centre follow up. I didn't like being pushed.
Finally I found Vernon @ Cove; local, likeable and very willing to run through the quote I'd received from the second company and then quote for a far superior system for around the same investment on my part. Amazing.
The install was all done in a day, no mess, no fuss - and it was up and running in about 3 days. Vernon also taught me how to use the app, and offered to update the backend data with my new tariffs for me so the data I would see would be bang on.
Plus, he told me to just call him if there's any issues, ever. Knowing it's a local business is a huge tick here.
Vernon has even knocked up a quote for my mum and dad for me, as we love our solar install so much.
After the initial feelings of overwhelm, dealing with Vernon @ Cove was just so simple. My family and friends are probably already sick of hearing how happy we are with our solar - so I thought I'd share the love here! :)
Vernon and his staff provided prompt, courteous and efficient service throughout the process. All required information and answers to questions were provided during the investigation stage. The Cove quotation was the most competitive of those received. Upon accepting the quotation the work was undertaken and completed as per the timeline given. Once installation was completed instruction on reading the inverter was given and the work site was totally cleaned of work debris. Follow up service and information also excellent. Overall, a top class performance by a small but highly professional and capable team. No hesitation in recommending Vernon and his Cove team to any prospective client.
First experience with Solar - in Mornington, Victoria - Vernon and Cove provided comprehensive quotations, patient explanations of options, and professional and rapid installation. They also managed all government subsidy activity. Very happy with total package and support.
Vernon and his team at Cove Technologies were extremely helpful and professional from start to finish.. The system installation was carried out over two days and we are very happy with the performance of the solar panels so far..
Happy to recommend Cove Technologies to anyone looking for solar power installation on the Mornington Peninsula..

We should like to recommend Cove Technology to anyone looking for an excellent company to help them through the Solar panel process.
They are professional and very nice to work with at every stage.They know their subject and are able to answer questions and listen to what is required to give the best result for the job.
Our system has been running for several months and we are delighted with it!
These guys know their stuff. Excellent from planning to installation. Have had the system in for almost a year without fault. Feel comforted by the fact they are monitoring the system remotely. This system is teaching me to live in credit rather than on credit which is a good thing. I look forward to installing a battery when it becomes cost effective. Not any time soon it appears.
If I have anything in the negative to say ( and it’s not about Cove) it would be the long wait time for the final inspection, over a month. That’s a long time and cost to go without your own electricity when it’s there on your roof. When the inspector explained how the authorities structure the process It left me cold. Maybe the minister responsible needs to instruct them to get their act together. Any waiting doesn’t need to happen at all as far as I can see in a well managed authority.
I Live in the Skye area and wanted to get a solar panel system installed . Both to save money and to help the environment . After some research , I decided on going with Cove . I was glad I did, as right from the word go I was treated with good cheer, guided and prompted along the way through a-stress free procedure . On the day of installation , the trades men showed respect and decency at all times. They were neat and tidied up after themselves.I am a trades man myself for many years and know what good service means. With that said . I would have no hesitation in recommending this well run company. Thanks for a neat job , for answering my questions with respect and all in all good service throughout.
