You offered ideas and experience and your service was impeccable. We have, and will continue to sing DCPower’s praises to all and sundry.

Rachel & Craig Burcher

Great work, very well explained, very neat and tidy. Would recommend to anyone looking for solar / battery work.

Bruce & Jodi Duncan

Totally wrapt with our complete full off grid solar system. Heaps of power to run all our modern appliances, even over winter. Great service, great people at DCPower.
Feels good to support a small local business as well.

Bev Morrissey

Scafit has used DCPower for all our truck batteries over the past few years and always impressed with the service and technical expertise. Even our staff now shop there personally. Great value!

Dave Crowley (Scafit)

From the first phone conversation Sarah and her team were so helpful. She sorted everything for us making it super easy, and giving us transparent and excellent advice ensuring we had the best possible outcome for our purchase. I will never go anywhere else for batteries and associated products.

Northport Limited

Darryl’s depth of knowledge and skills is hard to find elsewhere and I found him the right man for the job. Add to that the staff working for DCPower know their stuff and are great to deal with. Getting this level of support and expertise from a local business is hugely important to businesses such as Foodies. We found the level of R&D and the way you searched for better ways of doing things an added strength and huge benefit to us.
