System Capacity: 3.995 kW CO2 reduction: 9 tonnes annually System Specs: 17 x REC 235W panels; SMA inverter Installation: December 2010 With electricity costs on the rise, Gary Smith calculated how much power he would need to generate to completely eliminate his bill and started shopping around for a solar system. With four adults in the household, a large swimming pool and a workshop out the back, the Smiths are aware of their energy consumption and try to be as energy efficient as possible. Mr Smith did thorough research before putting a deposit on a system. He chose Energy Matters because of the quality of the components on offer. “The REC solar panels had produced fantastic results in independent, international tests”, explained Mr Smith. “We chose to include them in our solar system because they are highly efficient.” It wasn’t just the solar panels which stood out for Mr Smith: after working with electrical engineers for most of his career, he was impressed by the work ethic and manner of Energy Matters’ solar installers, Greg Wylie from Skilled Electrical Services “The installer was fantastic and treated the job with the professionalism of an industrial project. “Months later and with their first power bill in hand, Mr Smith is happy he made the decision to go solar. “We were getting power bills for around $270 per quarter”, said Mr Smith. “We were pretty pleased to get a $210 credit on our first bill, which wasn’t even for the full billing cycle of energy production. During the average week we feed roughly a third more power into the grid than what we consume. “With Queensland electricity prices set to increase again, Mr Smith wants to add three more panels to the system. “We deliberately went with a larger inverter than needed in case we wanted to expand the system”, said Mr Smith. “Adding a few extra panels will help guard against future electricity price rises.”

After meeting Greg and his team when they installed a Solar system for my parents home I knew they where the only guys for the job when it came time to install a Solar system in my own home. As an Electrician myself I was pretty fussy about how I wanted things done and Greg and his team more than exceeded my expectations. Before any work commenced Greg explained all my options and how things would look. The job flowed smoothly and trouble free. Once complete Greg and the guys explained how every thing functioned and took the time to answer my questions and made sure I was happy. The site was left cleaner than when they started and the job completed on time. I can’t speak highly enough about Skilled Electrical’s excellent service and would not hesitate to recommend them.

“After we decided to install a 5KW solar PV system to get rid of our home’s power bills, we quickly discovered that was the easiest part. Our real problems started when we then tried to find a reputable solar company to do the work. To cut a long story short, after being constantly mucked around for well over 6 months by a number of other solar companies, all of who’s, ‘shiny gold-toothed, flash-rat suited salesmen’ promised us the world, but delivered absolutely nothing but a lot of hot air and blatant lies to us, it was like a sudden breath of fresh air to finally talk to Greg Wylie from Skilled Electrical Services. Greg is definitely an honest ‘straight shooter’ who quickly gave us a very competitive quote specifying the use of only the best possible quality German SMA inverter and Norwegian REC panels. Just seven days after contracting him to do our job we had our system fully installed and operational on our roof. Greg and his skilled team fully completed the whole install job in just one day, he then took care of completing all of the associated Government and RECs paperwork for us and they left the work site totally spotless afterwards. I myself, am now retired after 40 years of experience working in the Australian electronics industry and hence, I am not at all tolerant, of anything less than the highest possible standards in this type of work and I am happy to say that I am very impressed with Greg’s professionalism and friendly customer approach and the ‘can do attitude’ and very high quality of his whole team’s work. Consequently, I have absolutely no hesitation at all in recommending Skilled Electrical Services to anyone, who is thinking of having a quality solar PV system installed.”

Many thanks to Greg and his guys for doing an excellent job on our solar system. Greg was professional and very knowledgeable. The whole system was done in the time frame that was quoted.. Installation is very neat and tidy. They arrived on time considering where they are from to Esk.  Couldn’t ask for a better job. We would recommend Greg and his team to anyone.

Greg Wylie and his team have installed two large solar systems for both our business entity and at our residence during the last year. Watching the methods that Greg uses to streamline the installations is most impressive. Greg is a polite and conscientious service provider. Skilled Electrical is an excellent trade service business. The team are exemplary in their support on the job. The installations went very smoothly, with contacts, arrangements and processes flowing seamlessly. We’ve been very pleased to receive this service, and gained ready advice when we posed any question about the systems or the operations involved. We thank Greg and the team wholeheartedly, and we can absolutely recommend Greg’s business service to any private or business entity requiring any electrical trades’ service.

Being a novice in the Solar installation world, I was cautious of potential dodgy tradesmen and problems that could follow.  I had no need to worry when Greg and his team arrived at my home to install a 3 KW Solar system.  I was immediately put as ease as Greg explained exactly what was going to happen. Greg took the time to explain how everything worked and the procedure that he used to make sure all his work was compliant and to an extremely high standard.  It was obvious that Greg and his guys were meticulous and professional throughout the installation, their vehicles and tools were set out immaculately, their procedures were streamlined with room for any onsite problem solving and they maintained a very clean and safe work environment.  When the Energex technicians arrived a week or so later to hook up the system to the grid they commented that ours was one of the best and most professional installations they had encountered and that Greg had done everything by the book and gone above and beyond the recommended requirements.  This was very pleasing to hear and no surprise after watching Greg and his team in action.  Since the installation our system has not missed a beat and is performing very well and Greg is always available to provide advice and tips should they be required.  Associates of mine have had some issues with less than professional installations at their properties but I rest easy knowing I have had the best possible installation at my home. I would not hesitate to recommend Greg for any and all electrical work.  It was a pleasure to deal with such a professional and reliable team.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the great job today.  Happy to recommend you guys to anyone.  Don’t be surprised you get some phone calls from people in North Lakes or Mango Hill.

Warmest Regards,

“Just to let you know that Greg contacted me the next day after your email and dropped around to install the wireless monitor. He also answered quite a few other questions we had about our system, now that it has been in operation for a few months. Since then, the wireless monitor has been working beautifully and providing us with an excellent daily picture of the performance of our system. Many thanks for your excellent service. And also many thanks to Greg, who is a wonderful ambassador for Energy Matters with the quality of his work and overall level of service.”

Best Wishes

“Our system has now been installed and we can only highly recommend Greg and Callum from Skilled Electrical Services as Energy Matters preferred installers. They were both very polite and diligent in their professionalism in completing the job at hand. Greg then went through the installation in detail with us. We are absolutely delighted and cannot wait for Ergon to get their part done so we can see the meter ticking over in our favour.”

Kind regards

Robert and Gail Knock


“Just a note to rave about Greg and his skilled electrical team. What a surprise to find rare tradesmen that take such pride in there work. Punctual, polite, courteous and fastidious, they go the extra mile to make sure everything is explained and executed to perfection. Greg and his team installed both mine and my elderly parent’s solar systems, we both had the same wonderful service that we long thought dead.” I would highly recommend them to anyone, You too will be impressed !!!!!

“We were very fortunate that our solar electrical system provider “Energy Matters”, used the services of Greg Wylie’s company “Skilled Electrical” to install our 16 panel system. I cannot fault the service provided by Greg and his staff as the system was installed in a most professional manner. The system has performed excellently and up to it’s full specified potential. Greg also took the time to explain in layman terms how the various components are meant to perform, and this gave us added confidence in the system. Thanks Greg for your wonderful assistance.”

“Our 3kw PV system is up and running and we are more than happy with the installation process by Skilled Electrical. From initial site inspection to switch on Greg and Blake exceeded all our expectations. They arrived when they said they would and completed the system install efficiently while respecting our premises. Greg accommodated all our requirements taking time to explain how things might work best. Skilled Electrical are unique in my experience in being efficient, friendly, polite and most rarely, leaving no mess at all. It is unlikely there will be any issues with the quality of the installation, the REC panels and SMA inverter fitted, but we are also confident that Greg would always assist in resolving anything that might occur. Skilled Electrical enhance the reputation of Energy Matters, that company also having been a pleasure to deal with. I often complain about poor service but in this case I have the rare pleasure of singing the praises of Skilled Electrical and Energy Matters.”

“Hi Rebecca, I would like to let you know that we had our panels installed today by Greg Wylie he is a thorough gentleman and very considerate, his boys were very well mannered, we felt very much at ease and confident while he was installing or panels I would have no hesitation in recommending Greg to other interested person and also the same goes for Energy Matter. At all times we were informed in what is happening throughout the purchase and installation of our solar system. Thank you.”

“Can you please thank Greg Wylie and his team for the absolute professional service they provided with the installation of the Solar System at our home in Doonan on 10th January. Greg was excellent and communicated with my wife and I continually throughout the day to explain each step. It was refreshing to see a trades person arrive in an immaculate vehicle with all materials properly laid out. The presentation of his crew was first class. Although it was a hot day, they worked tirelessly throughout the day. I would have no hesitation recommending Sunshine Coast Solar and Greg Wylie and his team to anyone.”

“To anybody wanting a great solar electrical man, Greg from Skilled Electrical is the man. He installed our solar system for us and upon his arrival, he was so friendly and eager to get started, firstly asking where we wanted the inverter put. His suggestions gave our wall some ellegence and so neat and tidy. His vechile and trailer is a credit to him the way he has everything set up very professional. His apprentace was a lovely boy and has the best teacher he could hope for. A perfect job was done and no mess was left behind so nothing to clean up. We had Ergon Energy here to hook the solar up and he commented on what a wonderful and professional job our installer had done. Skilled Electrical are so lucky to have Greg on their payroll you couldn’t get better. Again to Greg, thankyou sooooooo much it was a pleasure to have meet you. Hope to run into you again sometime” cheers

“I am very happy with the install by Greg of Skilled Electrical Services and the performance of the system is very pleasing. Please thank all concerned. If the government contributed more in assisting with these solar systems, the need for generating coal power and the carbon tax problem would be greatly diminished!”

“Greg from Skilled Electrical Services Qld Pty Ltd turned up early and on time. He quickly summed up the situation and then began the installation straight away. Professional looking vehicle, equipment and general setup. Greg worked flat out with no breaks, apart from a coffee or two, he got the job done. A very neat and beautifully finished installation, both on the roof and at the inverter/meter box. Greg was friendly and helpful and left with the system up and running and producing electricity from the word go. I hope Energex are as efficient with the meter changeover.”


John from Kilcoy

“The system was installed by Greg and Aaron from Skilled Electrical Services. They are a credit to Energy Matters. Professional, friendly and went out of their way to advise and answer any questions that we had during the installation, offering any further follow up if required. Thank you for your professional approach to initiating and completing the sale of the system and your patience in answering the many questions that we posed. We have and will be recommending you to family and friends.”

“I am just letting you know that our Solar Power system was installed this morning. Greg & his crew were fantastic. Greg introduced his co-workers to us & then gave us a comprehensive run down on our entire system. After finishing the installation they cleaned everything up. Greg then explained the full functions of the inverter. Christine & I would like you guys to send Greg a message of thanks for his excellent service, the whole crew was outstanding. We would also like to thank all at Energy Matters for your excellent service & excellent product. We will have no hesitation in highly recommending your company to our friends or anyone we find out is looking for a Solar Power system.”

“I have been meaning to write and praise the installation. Greg and his team were very professional and informed us along the way with the install. All the staff were very courteous and polite. The actual install was very neat and tidy, and they left the area immaculate. We are very pleased with the installation and are looking forward to saving money.”

What a pleasure it is to have tradespeople who are on time, polite, extremely knowledgeable, provide excellent service and follow up plus also clean up spotlessly when the job is complete ! This is the experience I had with Greg & his team from Skilled Electrical when having our solar power system installed. I thoroughly recommend Skilled Electrical and have in fact referred them to friends who have also been delighted with the service they provided.

Maree Bartils


Just a note to say thanks for the excellent job you and Blake did installing the 5kw solar system on our house in Toowoomba. As with the two previous installations you have done for us in the past 9 months we were impressed with your punctually, and attention to detail. The finished jobs were very neat and tidy, and are all performing up to, or above expectations.

Thanks again.

Richard and Lois Roberts


We purchased a Solar Energy System from Energy Matters and were fortunate enough to have this installed by Skilled Electrical. Greg Wylie, the company principal, was extremely helpful throughout the process. He explained the options for the set up and had a ?no fuss?, personable approach to dealing with all issues. His quality of workmanship, organisation and attention to detail were outstanding, as was his obvious knowledge of the product and its functions. We would have no hesitation in recommending Greg to anyone intending to install solar energy systems. (However, he still owes us for the cups of coffee!…only joking)

D & J Murray


Greg and his team have been professional from start to finish. Skilled Electrical were reliable prompt and communicative from taking care of all relevant paperwork to following up system performance. We recommend Skilled Electrical for anyone that is considering Solar Power that wants an installation that is completed to an excellent standard.

Skilled Electrical Services were given the task of installing our solar PV system, purchased through Energy Matters. Greg arrived on site, at the arranged time, providing a skilled and professional installation with great attention to detail. Unfortunately the inverter failed five weeks later, during the Christmas holiday period when Energy Matters were closed for business. Greg immediately responded to my telephone call and attended site, even though he was on holiday and due to go away with his family that afternoon. Before leaving for his trip he had emailed Energy Matters and requested a replacement inverter. As soon as the replacement had been delivered, he was able to replace and verify correct operation of the inverter immediately. I have no hesitation in recommending Greg as he arrives on time, does an excellent job and is able to spend time discussing any aspect of the system, such is his breadth of knowledge.

A true professional.



“As a busy health club manager on the Sunshine Coast, I know how tricky it can be finding a reliable and prompt tradesperson. I recently needed some urgent electrical work and I contacted Greg from SKILLED Electrical Services. Greg promptly attended and assessed the work and I found him to be honest, clear and professional. I had no hesitation in offering him the work. It is refreshing to watch a professional trades person work quickly and efficiently, without problem. Not only was the work completed quickly, but the area was cleaned prior to departure. I can confidently recommend Greg from SKILLED electrical services, particularly if you are looking for quick, honest and reliable service!”

“When setting out to design and fit out the new showroom at Altitude Volvo in Brighton, Melbourne, I found it challenging to source an experienced lighting Consultant to design effective and appropriate lighting for my unusual shaped showroom. I was very fortunate to have been recommended to Greg Wylie from Skilled Electrical Services Queensland who has an impressive portfolio along the East Coast of Australia for designer homes, pubs, restaurants, factories and now car showrooms. I found Greg?s enthusiasm, excitement and passion with lighting showed in his work, as the showroom is not mainstream. I put my confidence in him to design a unique concept for showroom lighting which is a first of its kind. The results were beyond my expectations. There is no other showroom like Altitude Volvo Brighton and now not only are we the leader prestigious car dealership but also now our showroom reflects our product. I have had amazing positive feedback from old and new clients and believe the atmosphere created in my new Showroom has improved my business. Thank You Greg! We?re excited here at Altitude Volvo Brighton.”

“We purchased a large country 100 year old pub, in western Queensland, with a large shortfall in electrical compliance. We needed a new electrical board fitted, new wiring, more power connected, fridge repairs, new exit lights, new smoke alarm system and heaps of other stuff to get us compliant. I contacted many electricians in the area (within 200kms) and most of them promised to have a look at the job, but didn’t. The ones that did, wanted 6 months to do it. We didn’t have that luxury and needed it done quickly, but well enough to pass compliance and suit the pub. We were given Greg’s name by a friend, who is based on the Sunshine Coast. Not a problem for Greg. He flew in and assessed the job then rang me a few days later with the detailed quote. There was some unknowns in the quote, but without ripping out walls to check on wiring etc, no sparky could accurately quote some of the items. We liked Greg’s attention to detail, planning and attitude, so we gave him the ok. Within 2 weeks, he and his crew were on site and into it. The job took 3 weeks and on the last day, the building assessor and the Qld Fire Service Compliance Officer gave us the OK. This wouldn’t have been possible without Greg’s dedication, planning and execution of the job. He was on time, didn’t exceed the quoted amount and all whilst under very trying circumstances. There is nothing more we could have asked for. Greg is a very professional operator, does what he says he’ll do on time, and good bloke. Not many with all that nowdays!!!”

“Skilled Electrical headed by Greg Wylie were contracted to complete all electrical work at my three hotels for a period of seven years. This work included major rewire of property’s to ongoing maintenance work. I always found all the Skilled Electrical Service staff to be very professional, discreet, reliable and cost effective. All of their work was completed to the highest standard and always completed on time without fuss. I would have no hesitation in recommending Greg Wylie and his staff to anyone looking for a professional electrical company to service their any need.”
