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.
Since 2012, the philosophy hasn’t changed but the name and team have. Now known as Goliath Solar & Electrical, the small local team of ten are dedicated to providing good, honest and reliable customer service, both before and after installation.
Founder / Electrician / Installation Manager
David is the founder of Goliath Solar & Electrical. His 13 years experience working as an electrician have equipped him with top shelf solar and electrical knowledge which he brings to his current role overseeing the installation team. He is still very hands on, often helping with installations and performing the rare warranty work.
Sales / Service Manager
Tom's passion is customer service rolling one sleeve up. He brings 13 years of experience in team management with Bank SA and in his role overseeing the team, ensuring delivery of premium customer service. With over 6 years solar sales experience, his knowledge is as broad as any qualified solar installer.
