Arise Solar Solar Reviews

Professional and prompt

Arise Solar were very easy to deal with. Professional and extremely prompt service. I called on Monday and their installed my solar on Friday. The installation was very quick and very clean The young men were courteous and considerate of my house and also the noise. It only took then a few hours and my solar was up and working. I was very surprised and extremely happy with the service from start to finish. Show additional information

Poor customer service and refusal to repair damage

Initial process of sign up quick and easy . However after install it’s become a nightmare. A leaking roof . That has been advised has been fixed , funny how we are home worked and no body has been around to do. 5 different conversations later , still not fixed .
System 6.6 kw will not put out more than 4 kw. Advised by arise that This is normal , however all other operators tell us it should be around 5kw. Have requested the system be checked as it would appear possibly 3 panels are not generating at all hence only 4 kw. Company has refused . Now off to the ombudsman. Enough is enough tired of taking up my time to fix an organisation’s problem. Disgusted with the customer service.

Very helpful and friendly staff and a good solar system

I have recently installed solar system through AriseSolar at my house. Arise solar consultants were very helpful and friendly. Their quick response and prompt actions were commendable. As like any other trades, there was some delays in installation, however, they were addressed immediately and brought all under control.
I would not hesitate to recommend AriseSolar to anyone who is considering a solar systems to their property.

Prompt and affordable.

Everything went well to plan. I varied the contract so payment was upon full completion, therefore paid when Energy supplier installed smart meter.
I went for a more expensive Inverter than was originally offered and stayed with their recommendation of solar cells. Although the cells were a cheaper version they were still recommended by Solar Quotes.
Only took 1 day to install on roof and connected to the grid. Tradesmen were very professional on the day. They did break one roof tile but had previously asked if any were available (I had some spare) and promptly replaced the tile. The company organised the paperwork Smart meter installation which occurred approximately 10 days later.
The only issue was getting the information onto my phone which their on line service organised.

Water Damage Arise Solar

Arise solar damaged roof tiles which led to a water leak, the gyyprock is water damaged in my 2 years old bedroom and they are refusing to repair it. Do not use Arise Solar i cannot stress this enough! Use someone that has some form of customer service.. Show additional information

Steer well and truly clear of the cowboys

I had read reviews and disagreed to signing up but the husband did it anyway. Had solar installed on a fine day, next day it was raining roof is leaking, tiles are cracked and tiles left down where panels were installed. Now we have water damaged gyprock in my 3yr old sons bedroom. They are rude and arrogant. They are refusing to fix it. Absolute disgrace of a company! Show additional information

Provided good service and negotiated price

Initially a little pushy but negotiated to an agreeable product and then service was all good. Punctual informative helpful. Installer worked well tidy polite.

No complaints. System so fast so good.

Forget customer service

Everything was fine until I changed my mind. Forget customer service then. Nearly a month gone and still getting delays for the refund.Please provide proof of payment.Please wait twelve working days. Please wait two days for us to transfer.
I would not deal with them in a fit or recommend them. How many old pensioners would just give up and lose their deposits.

Damaged tiles and leaking roof

Hi There,
Recently contractors from Arise Solar in stored our panels . Ever since we have had Electricity shortages cutting our power off. A contractor just turned up to our property without ringing nor speaking to us had a look noticed the wiring was not correctly done. Problem is still not fixed. Told my Husband to give him $100 cash my husband refused. In the end the contractor told him it was our safety switch that needed replacing, no problems before insulation with power.
Still power cutting out not really getting our monies worth.

Now our roof is leaking due to broken tiles and roof lifting on valley and damaged to our insulation in our roof and crack in bathroom water leaking from .

Prior to work, our roof didn’t leak no broken tiles and no hole in bathroom roof where it drips .
Tradesman visited my premises on the 12/8/20 had a look on our roof and will not take any responsibility on the damage tiles and leaking.

I’m very disappointed on how we have been treated as a customer.
Now we will have to pay for the damages ourselves and be out off pocket.

Anyone looking at getting Solar Panels please research companies and ask tradesman for certified certificates .
Arise Solar is suppose to be Australian owed.
Not very Australian when customers are paying for damages .

Kind Regards
Leanne kent

Good Value

Sales was straight but there was multiple followup calls, which is expected. Technical decisions were made on the day of install, installation was friendly and on time Show additional information

A smooth process

The sales process was good, all my questions were answered and I was confident what the process would be. The installation went really well, they were very punctual and tidyed up afterwards. Show additional information

Steer clear save money and time

Solar installed quickly but after giving them access to inverter to check for faults they said system was working fine even though it wouldn’t put out more then 3kw(5.4kw system) so it was running at 58% efficiency. After 9 months of fighting I had a 3rd party fault find and repair installation. It appears that they wired 6 panels reverse polarity and hadn’t set the inverter grid voltage correctly so system dropped out constantly and wouldn’t perform on one of the arrays. 3rd party electrician gave me a report and it’s been a nightmare trying to recover costs the service team go in circles and get quite heated when I keep demanding to talk to supervisor. Learn from me or hold deposit until system is fixed this is the only thing that saved me on repairs. Show additional information

Arise solar

This company is very quick. Under a week from online quote to installation. Roger at arise solar is very knowledgeable and helpful. Our system was very affordable but it has been cloudy and raining since installation so we don't know of our power savings yet. Show additional information

Arise Solar Service and Installation

I found Arise solar very responsive and professional to deal with. It took a little while for them to install after signing up but once on site they were fast and efficient. A few tiles were broken in the installation but that is to be expected and they were replace very professionally. The workmanship seems very good and the 6.7 KW system is working a treat. The only area where the process fell down a little bit was when trying to ensure the installer and power provider were communicating to each other to get the smart meter installed so I could commence using the solar system. That took over a month after the installation which a bit disappointing and I had to chase it up repeatedly. However, if you are prepared to invest some time to keep things on track I would highly recommend Arise Solar and they are also very competitive on price.
I would rate them 8/10.

Great service and friendly staff

Have had a great experience with dealing with Jeff Matthews, very prompt service and a good deal with the solar Show additional information

Great service and friendly

I highly recommend AriseSolar. I was able to have solar installed at my house as well as my investment properties that were located in other states and only had to use one provider. Jeff Matthews from AriseSolar was able to coordinate this project without a hitch. I found him to be friendly and very patient whilst he was explaining how solar saves me money. Additionally, I was overwhelmed with his follow ups in regards keeping me in the loop for installation to the 5 different sites. Mr Matthews was highly efficient in the planning of the installation of solar in 3 different states at 5 different locations. Mr Matthews was able to provide a good price as he grouped my investments with my house to assist in keeping the cost down. Show additional information

Happy customer

Steve from Arise was extremely helpful and patient with all my queries which I’m glad to be dealing with him. I will be recommending Steve and Arise to my families and friends for the solar installation. Show additional information

Over seas customer service

Budget Friendly.

Quick to quote and no epic saleman trash.

Connected to the grid.

Hard to understand some of the staff. Bad experience with Installation. They were pushy and quite rude I felt.

I would still recommend if you can get passed communication barriers, and are happy knowing you're not dealing with people who speak fluent Australian.

Disgraceful company

Everything was fine right up until they left the premises, the next day I noted nothing was actually working. Then commenced months of hell on earth dealing with this company. Ended up getting the installation fixed by a 3rd party, never had the old system completely removed (inverter still on wall) even though I paid $300 for them to do so, lost months of potential generation. Afte 3rd party fixed system got about 75% generation, got supplier to lower grid voltage which provided last 25% of generation. I cannot stress enough, don't go near Arise Solar unless you want stress, inaction, rudeness and to waste your money.

I don't understand companies that behave as this one did, their behaviour is going to cost them far more than they have ever cost me.

Its great!

The sales process was really simple, I had a detailed quote within minutes of the call ending including a roof diagram. The sales person was really easy to deal with, his knowledge was more than I expected and continued contact during and after installation to ensure we were satisfied with the install.
The install team worked quickly, efficiently and were very customer focused.
The customer service was really good, grid connection etc all taken care of. Absolutely happy

3 Panels short

We were happy with the sales and install but now find we are 3 panels short as per energy safe certificate of VICTORIA
which clearly states 6.6kw and 24 panels , and I am sure they would have submitted a claim for this. Well I am here to tell you this was just a 2kw upgrade and 9 panels was installed , sure looks dodgy to me
all attempts to get in connect have failed.

Very unorganised company

System installed Nov 2018. They didn't have inverter. Came back in the new year didn't work then came to replace with the wrong one. Non hybrid.

Still 15mth since then and not fixed.

Installer had DC isolators full of water

They had independent come out and would not touch it as it would pass fault to him
Have not received a call or email in over 4 maths.

I get warning from Solax portal about 6 times a day saying investor fault and still no call.

We were happy with the whole process, it was very simple to organise and efficient.

The installers were excellent, very hard working and did not even want to stop for drinks (or chat, as a lot of tradies do)

They were also extremely tidy and advised us on how the system worked and to contact the energy company to have new meter fitted.

We have not had are first electricity bill since having the system but are confident the the savings will be considerable.

No issues solar

From the start, I received a fair quote. Once I announce that I had other quotes coming in, the price bettered any other quotes. With both quality products & price.
The installation team were very polite, punctual & cleaned up after them selves.
The solar was installed for about a month before it was finalized.

Shocking 2nd rate instalation everyone that sees it thinks i did it

took a lot of lies and stories to finally get installation done and now that it is done it is a mess looks like a 2 year old did it now that money has been paid they will not communicate at all have sent photoes etc no result. Show additional information

Hasn't been installed properly and can't get any support to fix the problem.

3 months after installation and our first energy bill arrives and there is no solar being sold back to grid when there should be. Something hasn't been installed correctly, we have sent multiple emails, left multiple messages and no one seems to be able to return calls or emails. It's potentially costing us a lot of money while we wait to have some customer service and a fix to the situation. Show additional information

Very professional!

I was a bit surprised at how fast paced the sale went after I initiated contact. But I’m very pleased with the service, installation and grid connection process. The price was reasonable and they went out of their way to keep it cheap for me. I have another purchase of solar panels for the shed, and I’ll definitely be contacting AriseSolar.

Very good installation

Sales process was smooth and I was able to build up my system with plenty of choices on offer. The sales person helped me to get a good value for money. Solar quotes was a big help in making my decision. Sales person also have me cross references to solar quotes to help decide.

When I bought my system, I was given a ten week time for installation as it was a supposedly busy time. However, I ended up having installation in 3 weeks as I got a call asking me if I was ready. The installers did a very good job. They laid all the wiring through the wall cavity and nothing is visible from the outside. I always thought that wiring through the ducts was an eyesore and the extra effort installers put in to make me happy in this regard was exceptional customer service for me. They also were able to install the inverter in my preferred location, inside the garage.

Grid connection and all the paperwork was done by the team of arise solar without me having to even ring them once. They updated me at every stage as to what was happening.

Great system but rough installation

The sales staff were courteous and confirmed all details of the offer in writing. The system works extremely well and produces much more power than the installation team had estimated. The only downside of the whole experience was damage to the building where it was installed due to careless workmen. Scratches on colorbond roof from throwing and skidding materials and several corrugations on the roof were crushed when there was no attempt to stand on supported areas of the roof. The installation team seemed to be sub-contractors and maybe Arise should be monitoring their work more closely. Show additional information

STILL WAITING FOR INSTALLATION

Signed up with Arise Solar and paid deposit start of October. 4 and a half months later i am still waiting for my panels to be installed on the roof. They told me that they dont have an installer at the moment and they will call me. Looks like I've been suckered... gets harder each time to contact them. Sent an e-mail with no reply a week later. Started to look elsewhere for a genuine company to deal with as i need solar now, not waiting for winter. Avoid at all costs... Show additional information
