Servicing the entire Brisbane metropolitan area, Infinity Solar's head office might be in the 'big smoke' but it offers the same personalised service you would expect to find in the smallest country town.
Adrian started at Infinity Solar in August 2008 after two and a half years at a patio company. Since working with Infinity he has seen the start (and demise) of the SHCP scheme, worked his way through a period of having no rebate or subsidies at all, watched the demise of the Federal Government's Green Loan Scheme and rejoiced at the introduction of the REC Scheme. In March 2010 he was promoted to Red Hill Shop Manager and looks forward to the rewarding challenge of supporting his sales managers as they continue to grow Red Hill's great referral customer base.
Grant has always had a passion for the environment and has worked with Lone Pine, the RSPCA and Billabong Water Solutions (rain water tanks). With the great push for alternative energy sources, Grant shifted his focus to solar, seeking a company that was professional, progressive and committed to providing clients with great service as well as quality products. He recently attended the International Solar Fair in Munich/Germany to further his knowledge and broaden his contacts within the industry.
Nick joined the Infinity team having spent over 16 years working within the construction industry before undertaking a degree in Property and Sustainable Development. Nick has studied many differing aspects of renewable energies and was attracted to the area of solar as a real, long-term solution for future energy requirements. He is now combining this new found knowledge with his years of construction experience to deliver innovative and practical solar solutions to his Infinity customers.
Ellen started working at Infinity Solar in December 2010 after six years working at ENERGEX, four of which were spent in the solar department. After watching the number of solar grid-connect system applications ENERGEX received increase from 60 per week to 400 per day, she decided to take on the challenge of crossing over into design and installation. Incidentally, Infinity Solar was the only company ENERGEX considered to install their own 12kW solar PV system on their headquarters in Newstead. Ellen's passion lies in providing renewable energy solutions to everyone and she enjoys helping people not only save money, but the environment as well.
I recently learnt why price should not be the main motivator when purchasing a solar power system and why Infinity Solar is my choice. In 2010 I was looking to install a standalone solar power system for a rural property that I had recently purchased. After many months of research and countless phone calls to companies around Australia I came across a great company by the name of Infinity Solar. Adrian Decarli and his team designed me a 5KW battery back-up system and took the time to explain how the system would work, the rebates I would receive and why they believed that the components they recommended were the best to use. Adrian’s team installed this system at my property in early 2011. The installers were fantastic and even offered to update the power board and install a few power points to get us going. And the system has not missed a beat since! After this experience I caught the ‘Solar Power Bug’ and decided to look at installing a feed-in system at my principle place of residence as well. Naturally I spoke to Adrian first to see what deal he could give me. He designed a 5KW feed in system for my house and also a smaller system for my Dad’s place. The price was good and the components were from reputable suppliers however I decided to get some quotes from a few other solar companies just to check I was getting a good deal. This is where I went wrong. One of the other companies I spoke to dazzled me with their slick marketing presentation and offered me a price that was several thousand dollars less than what Infinity Solar could match. So I went with them because they were cheaper. And yes you guessed it - less than 12 months later this other company were out of business and I was left with a faulty inverter with a warranty that was not worth the paper it was written on. So with my tail between my legs, I called Adrian once more to see if he could dig me out of the mess I had created. And of course he did! There is a good reason why Adrian and his team are still in business and that is a good reason to go with them.
Infinity Solar installed a 5.61kW system for us in February 2012. When we began researching solar systems and talking to some of the companies, the information we got from Adrian Decarli of Infinity Solar was much more helpful and complete. We appreciated that Adrian came to the house and spent time explaining PV systems, different options and the advantages of a large solar system over the smaller one we initially thought to purchase. The installation of our chosen system went very smoothly and was professionally done. At this point we have had two electricity 'accounts' (not bills!) generated and have been very happy with the credit produced by our system. It has been an excellent investment for us and will generate extra useful (tax free!) income for years to come. Thank you Adrian and Infinity Solar for your excellent service, professional conduct and great advice.

I had the pleasure of having Infinity Solar install my home PV system in September 2012. It was reassuring that Infinity Solar was involved in major installation contracts, and in particular were using premium products in a highly competitive market. I made my initial enquiries during the solar rebates rush, and Peter Saunders (sale manager) was helpful, informative, and patient with my questions. He used satellite imagery to demonstrate the positioning of my house, and projected roof surface area required for the installation. Despite the rebate rush and the ensuing huge demand for installations, his team were able to book the installation only 8 week later - I expected a much longer wait. The installation team (Mark and Ray) were courteous and professional. Installation took only 1.5 days taking in consideration that I have a difficult install due to a tall house with no easy access to the roof. The internal components were installed in a convenient location with minimal visible cabling . The panels had minimal impact on the building aesthetics. I was extremely pleased with their quality of workmanship. The product installed is a 5kW system using Trina solar panels. During a 24 hour period in mid-Sept 2012, it produced on average 30kWh/day, which is 10kWh more than we use. Come summer, we hope this will dramatically increase. I am happy to recommend Infinity Solar to anyone considering a solar installation.

Several months ago Infinity Solar installed a 1kW system in our home at Burpengary, Qld. We were very impressed not only by the professional approach taken by the company, but also by the performance of the installation. As a physicist I was keen to discuss the technical aspects of the system and found that the Infinity representative readily provided all the information I requested. Although it is early days it is apparent that the solar system is going to save us a considerable amount on our electricity expenses. In the five week period since the digital meter was installed we have put a daily average of 2.14 kWh back into the grid. Over that period we have drawn from the grid an average of 12.8 kWh per day. A Cent-a-Meter was installed with our installation and we were surprised by how much we were able to reduce our consumption by turning off appliances that were not essential or were drawing standby current. Turning off computers etc when not required has reduced our consumption by approximately 4 kWh per day. Overall we are very pleased with the installation and have no hesitation in recommending Infinity Solar for the excellent service they provide.

Of late, my wife and I have become conscious of making a greater effort to contribute to energy conservation. Following a conversation with friend who had recently installed solar panels, we contacted his supplier and subsequently met Adrian Decarli of Infinity Solar. As we were both complete novices in this area, we relied heavily on Adrian to achieve our goal of electricity savings. His professional approach impressed us greatly. Our goal was to install a system with sufficient power to negate our annual bill of $1800. Installation took place in September 2010. Our initial account was a mix of both solar and mains power so was not a true indicator, despite a healthy reduction on previous bills. We have only just received our latest account for the grand total of $8.82 for 87 days, despite extra usage of power for air conditioning for winter heating for an expanded family with overseas visitors. We are only too happy to recommend Adrian and his company Infinity Solar to anyone interested in both savings and energy conservation.

You don't know me directly but my partner, Kelley just had a large 4.5kW system installed a couple of days ago. I just wanted to say thanks to Nick and the team for making it as pleasant an experience as it can be - Kelley has had a lot on her plate lately and this has been a seamless, easy and trouble free transaction. I suggested Infinity to Kelley as I used to drive past the Red Hill store front every day when I lived on the northside and was reassured that you didn't appear the moment the rebate scheme started and that you deal in quality German products. You've all been very patient with Kelleys questions which is appreciated - no hard sell here. Kelley also commented that the installation crew were well mannered and professional. The first full day of operation we used a whole 44c of electricity on a partially cloudy day over and above what the system generated. Thanks guys - very much appreciated and won't forget it. Phil, Daisy Hill Qld I wish to commend you and the installation team on a fantastic job, and have found your staff to be courteous, informative and very professional. The experience in dealing with your company has been positive, and I would have no hesitation in making recommendations to friends and colleagues about the quality of workmanship and products.

To all the team at Infinity Solar I would like to express my thanks for your honesty and integrity. Your service has gone a long way towards restoring some trust in dealing with service providers / tradesmen. I am particularly impressed with your after sales service, and going the extra mile for me (literally). I wish you every success in the future and will happily recommend you to anyone who'll listen. Safe in the knowledge that you won't let them down. BTW - I've made an average 1.2kW for every hour of daylight since my installation. I was still making 500watts/hr yesterday in overcast rain!

We are first time solar power installer-users. The market was full of many people trying to sell us a product. After serious consideration and self-education, we decided to speak to people in the building industry where Infinity Solar’s name came up on several occasions. After we contacted you, the quote, the service and the information was forthcoming, clear (layman’s language) and comprehensive. We then decided to proceed with what we considered to be a competitive quote with recognised high quality componentry. The installation that followed was delivered on time, convenient, neat and the workmanship outstanding. P.S. doesn’t even make a noise!
