DAVID & GOLIATH
Starting from humble beginnings, Adelaide electrician David Stevens was trained by his uncle the old-fashioned way, a way where quality materials and first class workmanship came before profits.
David first identified a problem with the solar industry in 2010. He disliked the way industry giants were treating consumers: supplying little pre-install information with no assistance after installation. What annoyed him most were the solar companies run by entrepreneurs who structured their businesses to shut down when the industry went quiet, in turn leaving consumers without warranties.
Determined to offer a reliable alternative, David made the decision to establish Goliath Electrical, as it was known then. His vision was to build a company that would provide high quality solar systems to South Australian consumers, installed by friendly local electricians, building strong service relationships for the long term. David got the assistance of his best mate Tom who shared his vision and values to instill his service focus on the business, educating clients honestly about all things solar.
Since 2012, the philosophy hasn’t changed but the name and team have. Now known as Goliath Solar & Electrical, the small local team are dedicated to providing good, honest and reliable customer service, both before and after installation.
