Came highly recommended to us, and I would also recommend Hielscher. From booking in the quote we had great customer service, and it was the owner who came and quoted and spent a lot of time walking us through the system.

Since making a decision to install solar on my property , I made some inquiries as to whom should be responsible for this task . Most of the installers were interstate so they we’re not an option , eventually I located a local company Hielscher Electrical in Cairns.

Excellent local business with exceptional customer service, professional sales and trades with attention to detail. Of three quotes sought Hielscher was the only one to physically attend and inspect the meter box, property, check shading issues, etc. They were professional from start to finish, explaining details of the systems and features and benefits of different panel options and inverter, detailing exactly when the system would be installed and leaving everything as clean as it was on arrival.
