About us

How it all began

A small beginning

CS Solar commenced business in 2009 and is own and operated by Simon Lacey. As an already successful electrician, he became fascinated with solar power after seeing a system installed. Since then, the business has installed residential and commercial systems across Melbourne and Victoria, concentrating on the eastern suburbs of Melbourne in recent years. We are proud of our reputation and enjoy hearing from our customers about their results. After  over 12 years in business we are now seeing many customers return to purchase new systems as they move home or business locations.

We employ our own installation crews. Our customers love dealing with the business owner, and we have gained hundreds of our jobs out of the good word of mouth. We have now installed thousands of jobs all over Victoria of all different sizes. Although based in Mooroolbark/Croydon area, we have done many installs in regional Victoria. For example, we installed one job in Portland around eight years ago; we have now installed around 30 systems from good word of mouth. We pride ourselves on ensuring the customer is completely satisfied with the job. We rely heavily on their recommending us to their friends and family.


High Quality Solar Systems For Home & Business

Like most solar businesses, our earlier installations were domestic in the 1.5 – 2kw size market. However, these days majority of our household customers install 6.6kw systems with the occasional 2.5 & 3kw.  Under the current regulations, 6.6kW systems are generally the largest residentially allowed on a single-phase home. In addition, we have installed many commercial systems, with 10-30kw systems the most popular for commercial businesses and small farms etc.

We don’t like installing systems that won’t cover at least 50% of our residential customer’s consumption.

We want all our customers to have economic power bills and, most importantly, NO hassles

the future

how we support you

We are planning to continue developing our strong presence in the domestic market, and small commercial, however we see a significant area of opportunity in the small to medium size business with daily consumption under 500kw/day. We feel Solar PV can make a real difference here. We also plan to exploit opportunities that arise under the various government grants for larger scale users.

The other area we see real opportunity long term for us in Grid Tied Battery domestic/small business/services market. However we are very conservative about what products in this area we will recommend. We have seen to many flyby nighters come in and leave customers stranded over the long term.


We are now entering a significantly new growth phase as a state with a current government committed to a strong renewable policy. With a many years of experience we a looking forward to an exciting period in Victoria History.

"Highly Recommend! - Fantastic Installers, Very easy to deal with and the quality of the installation was second to none! ... connection to the grid seamlessly and we were amazed with how our electricity bill had been basically cut in half."
