Reduce the impact on our environment and save on constantly rising energy bills.

Join over two million Australians

There are two main reason why customers want to install solar:  To help reduce the impact on our environment and to save on what can be crippling utility bills.  We specialise in solar because it aligns with our beliefs and attitudes and makes it more than “just a job.”  

To significantly upgrade our service, we offer Solar Edge production/consumption monitoring which can be managed remotely, allowing us to locate any issue, determine what it is and which panel or part is affected.  This enables us to correct any technical problem or breakdown before you may even notice it. 

Additionally, with each panel monitored individually, we can fix any fault within 24/48 hours, rather than you waiting and getting a higher power bill maybe months later.  Without the monitoring, this could be the first point you realise something is not working correctly.

We quote, answer questions, overcome any technical issues, advise on the aesthetics of the installation, do a quality job and clean up.

We have found these specific criteria to be vital for anyone investing in solar for their property.

We have over 8 years solar experience. A regular residential solar installation usually takes one day.


  • Design of installation layout for best results.
  • Any permits or certificates required.
  • Work by licensed tradespeople.
  • Clean up and removal of any trade waste or debris.
  • 25 year warranty on the high-quality parts used.
  • 12 year warranty on workmanship.

How do I get the best position for my solar panels ?

When we do our quote, we will discuss with you the best placement that takes into account functionality and appearance, whilst making the installation sit as neatly and aesthetically as the roof will allow.  By discussing this before accepting the quote, you have a clear statement and you know what to expect.


Yes. Generally, your electricity provider replaces the meter free of charge or charges a small administration fee to do this. We organise and get that done as part of the overall job.

How do I get the government rebate on solar ?

Smooth Current Electrical & Solar will handle any government rebate administration and include that rebate in any pricing.


Amazing process from quote to installation to post install! Thank you Troy and the team
Great Guys, Excellent Service, worked in well with other trades re installExcellent Work, Great Customer service, kept us informed at each step of the process. Nice tidy Install and worked in well with other trades on site Highly Recommenced
Trustworthy, friendly, competitiveA pleasant experience from start to finish. Troy was never pushy but knowledgeable and understanding. At first I thought the quote was one of the higher ones, but after digging deeper into the cheaper alternatives it was clearly worth paying a bit more for a local company who do their own installations and stand by the kit they sell.Too early to comment on reliability but I know if I have a problem the company will be on hand to help.

Great experience from quote to installation.Troy was always prompt and courteous. He assisted greatly with options and the pros and cons of each. The installation team on the day were very professional. Everything went without a hitch and Troy has been in touch a few times since to make sure everything is working smoothly and if I had any questions.Overall great service from an experienced and professional team.
My experience with Jessie and the team was awesome. From sales to installation everything was explained and there were no surprises. Jessie showed me through the application on my phone and advised changing my pool pump to come on during the day instead of off peak to maximise my self consumption.Great company!
The quote we received from Troy was very competitive and for me was the sweet spot of quality products and a trusted local installer. After a slight weather hiccup on the first scheduled installation day the install went without a problem. Nothing to tidy up afterwards and Troy and team were extremely professional. He's also been very helpful with any questions we had.

Excellent dealing with Jessie from day 1. Understood our aims, right system at proper price: 14kW and 3 phase inverter installed cleanly in 1 day with all wiring in cavity and no mess or off-cuts left behind. Web portal set-up and working on the day of install and the system cranked out 78kW on its first day in early September. Best contractor I've ever dealt with!
The installation was seamless and professional. Troy, Jessie and their team were punctual, polite, tidy and friendly. Assisted with any queries I had. Their customer service was fantastic. Helped me with the app to monitor my solar usage. I would highly recommend this company as SCE Solar followed up at every stage from quoting to installation date etc.

Smooth Current Electrical and Solar have installed a new solar system for us. We were very impressed with their workmanship & professionalism. Jessie and his team were committed to providing the best service from our initial consultations right through to installation and follow up support. His team are skilled friendly tradesmen who take pride in their work. They carried out all quoted work and cleaned up on completion.
Jessie turned up on time with his team and worked very efficiently, without prompting, he kept everything out of sight, cleaned everything up and took away rubbish. There was no damage to plants or other parts of the house, good job.He explained the operations clearly and was very efficient providing the required paperwork and directions on what to do with it.My neighbour is using Jessie to install his solar panels today.
Well organised, well equipped & knowledgeable. The sales & quoting process was prompt & professional. All my concerns were addressed & my questions answered. The installation went extremely well. The team arrived on time & within 5 hours I was producing power. The team was very well organised & equipped & everything was cleaned & tidied up upon completion. Within 2 hours of installation I was able to monitor the performance of my system on my desktop computer & my mobile phone. Within 24 hours the application to swap out my meter was lodged with my energy provider. The customer service was excellent. I will be recommending this company to friends & colleagues - it does not come any better.
Helpful knowledgeable no hassle installerThe installation was on a retirement villa. There was no problems with the comprehensive quote. The installation was done on time. The connection to the grid was organized by them though it is not complete yet as a new meter needs installation. The complete job was left in a clean and tidy state.
Jessie and Troy were great to deal with when I installed my solar system. They run a professional setup, and their work is quality. Both Jessie and Troy are hands on in all aspects of the business, from quoting through to installation. You won't be paying for the overheads of one of the larger solar chains, and you'll get a system designed and quoted to your needs by the guys that know the best way to install it. I found them punctual and polite, and I'm happy I got put in touch with them.
Decent price and good quality of solar panels.Jessie gave us a good price for 6.6kw solar panels with 5kw inverter. The installation took only a few hours and they helped organise the smart meter connection after the install.We are happy with their price and service so I would recommend anyone who are looking for solar panels installation near northern beach area.
Great to deal with. Quick and smart installationVery knowledgeable when quoting. Installation was thorough, no fuss, clean and tidy. highly recommended

After getting 3 quotes, I asked all 3 for their opinion re a battery. Jessie, from Smooth Current, was the only one who suggested extra panels to offset night time usage (which is what a battery is for) instead of a battery. So instead of a 5kw system, which everyone suggests, I have a 10kw system. I earn twice as much for exported electricity, and the extra panels are far cheaper than a $12,000 battery. The panels will last up to 25 years, the battery only 10 years. Jessie was very patient with my questions and seemed to understand that this is a steep learning curve for some of us. The instalment was quick and clean. I love the app that comes with it and I have not found a downside to my decision.
