Imagine this: having a power bill in credit, helping the environment and getting rebates on your power. That is what the reality can be if you invest in an on the grid solar system. Property owners have been taking the note of the advances in technology; solar systems in Hervey bay and surrounding suburbs have been on the rise. Whether your incentive is to save money or to move to a more environmentally-friendly solution, switching to an on the grid solar system is worth researching and looking in to. While there are different types of solar systems, like grid-connected, off-the-grid systems and hybrid, grid-connected solar systems in Hervey Bay and in Queensland are a great choice. Grid-connected solar systems are still connected to utility power so if there is excess electricity, you are able to keep your account in credit so if you need to use the back-up power during the colder months, you have the grid to ensure that you have all the power you need. It is important though when installing solar systems in Hervey Bay that you enlist the right contractors to get the job done. GCR Electrical Systems are a knowledgeable and highly-skilled electricians, who have all the required tools and know-how to ensure that your solar system runs efficiently.

Solar Systems in Hervey Bay are a great investment, especially being in the Sunshine State so take advantage of the natural resources you have available. Off-The-Grid Solar Systems
Installing environmentally friendly solar systems in Hervey Bay is easy, whether it is with a home or a commercial property. Off-the-grid solar systems rely on the energy generated by your panels and if you have enough panels, you can create enough energy to power your home or commercial property. From appliances, to hot water systems and other electronics use quite a lot of power therefore as long as you have enough panels, you can successfully power you building with off-the-grid solar systems in Hervey Bay.

Solar System Rebates and Incentives
In a country as sun blessed as Australia, especially in the Sunshine state, there are plenty of rebates and incentives available for those looking into solar systems in Hervey Bay. Even though you are guaranteed savings for many years to come with solar systems, the cost of the initial outlay of solar panels can seem a bit intimidating, which is why there are plenty of incentives out there for those looking to make the switch. Out of the incentives, there are two primary incentives available. These are Feed-in tariffs and Small-scale Technology Certificates. Queensland Solar Feed-in Tariffs allow unused electricity to be moved into a shared grid, giving the owner of the system money off their bill. Depending on where you live and sometimes on the time of the day, you can receive various different tariffs for your excess generated energy. Either way, once you receive your bill, the initial cost of your outlay will be worth it as you will start to see the savings. Small-scale Technology Certificates allow those who install solar systems in Hervey Bey, whether it is an electrical system or hot water system, to get various certificates on their system that can be sold and be used to give you a significant discount. Do not be intimidated by the apparent costs of installing solar systems in Hervey Bay, as there are so many incentives and rebates that will not only give you discounts up front but will help you save down the line.
Since buying a newly built house in Hervey Bay we have used grc to install our solar panels, air conditioners, to increase the number of TV connections and many more power points. We have found that not only was their service top shelf but the guys who did the work were exceptionally helpful and very polite. In summing up it is easy to see why this company is so successful when you look at the people you deal with from Gary and Christabelle down to the young fella who takes his boots off before walking in the door. I would highly recommend this company.
I would highly recommend GCR Electrical Systems to anyone wanting solar installed. Right from first contact to installation is very professional. A very professional team that turns up when they say they would. Excellent job.
GCR Electric did a fantastic job replacing our solar panels. The job was extremely difficult due to high slippery roof. I would recommend GCR for any electrical job. Guys were friendly and professional.
We have just had a Solar System installed by GCR Electrical Systems. From the first time we met Gary he was very professional and explained all of our options to us so we could decide which System was suitable for us. The installation was very prompt and professionally done. I would recommend Gary and Christabelle to anyone who needs any electrical work done.
GCR - professional, courteous and just great to deal with!! We use GCR for all our electrical needs from general electrical work, to solar and air conditioner installation.
Gary is a very knowledgeable electrician, especially with regards to solar.
Gary and his team came highly recommend to us when we moved to Hervey Bay a couple of years ago, we had quite a lot of electrical jobs to be done in home and around the property, from running power to my shed which was about 30 metres from the house connect the power up to the new pool pump and water feature, installation of three split air conditioning systems and multiple Big Screen TVs around the house which they happily mounted to the walls, added extra power points where they were needed, and the big ticketed item of 36 micro inverted solar panels, we were more than impressed with Gary and his team of tradesmen, I have had to call Gary a couple of time just for advice and nothing is ever a problem for him he always responds promptly and his happy disposition makes him so very easy to deal with.
Absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gary and GCR ELECTRICAL for all you electrical and solar needs.
We have had a 6.6 kw system with a Fronius inverter and Winaiko panels installed in Feb 2020. After tackling the minefield of solar retailers, thankfully we were recommended to talk to Gary and Christabelle. The entire process was handled professionally from the initial contact when we lived interstate through to the very tidy install and after sales service. Gary’s advice on what we needed was superb, I had so many questions! We had no idea of our power use as the house had been a rental, but early numbers show we should have reduced our bills to approx $0 a year so the system will have paid for itself in around 4 years. Could not recommend GCR enough. Thanks Guys, A and H 😁
Thanks to Garry, Christabelle and their team for installing our solar. Thanks for offering a quality product and service at a good price. We are so happy with their work and happy to recommend GCR to others. After being recommend to us by friends we could not be more happier with the outcome. If your looking for a local business that provides quality products and service make sure you get them around.
Gary, Christabelle and their team at GCR are fantastic! They did a great job with our solar installation as well as all their knowledge and advice. We are saving close to 70% on our electricity bills each year!!! Very happy customers. Would definitely recommend. 👍
Very happy with our experience with GCR Electrical Systems! We have had them out for a number of jobs over the last few years from updating smoke alarms, installation of fans, down lights and adding a solar system to our home. Gary is great at letting you know what would work best for your home. We also love knowing we are supporting a local family business. Highly recommend
GCR were recommended to us by a friend after we had received 2 other quotes. Gary visited our premises advised on what was required gave us a price which was competitive from there we never hesitated.From Gary to Christabelle to the guys on site everything went smoothly and professionally from start to finish .We definitely will be referring them to family and friends.It is very pleasing to be able to refer a local company so highly.Bob and Sandra (Urangan )
Gary, Christabelle and the rest of the GCR team were awesome. They were great communicators, very easy to deal with and honest about the best options for my place. Unfortunately, due to my local transformer (Kawungan) being 130% over capacity Ergon won’t pay me a feed in tariff due to their poor infrastructure and lack of planning for a decentralised energy system. This wasn’t GCR’s fault but disappointing for the community given my neighbours will also be in the same position when they go to install solar unless Ergon upgrades their infrastructure. GCR 5/5. Ergon 1/5.
From the moment I phoned GCR electrical I knew I made the right choice from the quote to the end of the job was a very pleasant experience.
They dismantled my old system put a new 6.6 system on my house and the team that done the work wow what a great team. I highly recommend GCR electrical.
Gary and his team were extremely professional and helpful. Price was on par with other major retailers, and the gear is the same / comparative too. I got quotes from 3 retailers, and for the gear we got GCR was the best in price.Installation - the team was on time, efficient, and thoughtful. To spend the hottest part of the day on and in the roof and then take time to explain it all afterwards was great.Highly recommend, I am normally skeptical of small businesses with low reviews, but GCR’s has definitely earned the 5 star rating on here.
GCR Electrical Systems. The initial consultation with Gary, to the completed 6.6kw Solar System by Shayton and his team installed in Eli Waters. This work was carried out in a friendly, competent and professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend GCR to carry our any electrical work on your premises. Thank you Shayton.
Gary and Christabelle of GCR Electrical Systems have been professional and courteous every time I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with them. Their team of upstanding professionals carried out our recent solar install efficiently and to the highest standard. I look forward to having GCR carry out any of my electrical work in the future and I absolutely wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking for the best electricians on the Fraser coast. I’m an extremely happy customer.
Recently had GCR Electrical Systems install a 6.6kw system on my property in Urraween. From quoting, booking in of the job, installation and quality of works the service was exceptional and beyond expectations.The whole operation from start to finish was professional, all of the men who installed the system were careful with my home and also took care to clean up completely after the job. Gary's advice regarding the solar was second to none and he was able to answer all of my questions. It's been a great experience knowing how everything works and functions in regard to the system installed!I wouldn't hesitate to use GSR again when needed! These guys are pros!
Gary and his team have just completed fitting a new 6KW SOLAR system and a 6.5KW MHI A/C unit to to my rental properties in Urangan. He provided very competitive pricing. Gary understands the latest electrical regulations and compliance. His workmanship is neat and top quality which is important when installing roof mounted SOLAR panels. All work was carried out in a polite professional manner, an excellent quality job without fault.
Your team are both very efficient and courteous, upon arriving they have measured and checked the shadowing effect of the neighbouring trees and have discussed; strings for the inverter, positioning of the banks of panels, shadowing of the panels and the effect for summer and winter.
Thank you and the boys for the installation, we are very happy with you and your team for a professional attitude to having the Solar Energy System installed
