Very happy with Formula Sun

At all stages through the process from quote to install Phil and his team were excellent. Highly recommended. Show additional information
Easy, efficient and good to deal with. Only criticism is having them show up to deal with a few loose ends without phoning ahead as we requested. Turned out ok since we were home, but if we hadn't been the work would not have been completed to our liking. Show additional information
No Fuss honest customer service. Show additional information

Only had the installation done on Tuesday 23/4/19 so a bit hard to fully judge yet Show additional information
Bit early to rate some of the QA and performance output just yet but the supply and installation went very well. Show additional information
Phil from Formula Sun is not a pushy salesman. He provided sound advice based on years of experience in the industry, selling hardware that has proven to be totally reliable, but not necessarily the most expensive option. Installation team were professional, clean and engaging.
A great process from start to finish.

Phil has given incredible service all the way through the process, without ever once being pushy.

The install was within two weeks of my deposit being paid, the installation team was friendly, professional, conscientious, and took the time to go over all my questions.

Phil has been great with his after sales support too.

Highly recommended.

We are very happy with Phil Mercer and would recommend him Show additional information
Not only did we receive a great price upfront, but Phil was super easy to deal with. Not pushy like some of the others we encountered. Gave us loads of information, then time to digest it. Installation was great. Show additional information

Addition to previous review. Estiaan and Juan were top guys and proper tradesmen felt at ease throughout.

Thank you Sam. Show additional information
A great experience from start to finish, Phil was easy to deal with and had all the knowledge regarding the product.
His installation team at our property were 2 lads from South Africa who were very professional and knew their stuff, excellent workmanship and the site was cleaner when they left than when they arrived I think.
They even repaired a tile or 2 that I had broken on a previous visit I had made up on the roof.
We would not hesitate at all in passing on our 5 star experience with Formula Sun to friends and Family .

Prompt & efficient service from initial quote to final install. Show additional information
The whole team from the Phil and Walt in the office to the installers were all fantastic, very helpful polite and knowledgeable. Happy to answer any questions I had and replied promptly. Highly recommend them. Show additional information
On the day of installing Phils team suggested a far better location for the inverter than I thought would be best, and they replaced several old broken tiles I didn’t know were broken. They also took the time to update and set up my old smart phone as a monitoring device. All the electical work was done professionally and tidied up some previous poor work far less than the best quotes I had. Show additional information
We enjoyed terrific personalised customer service from beginning to end. Phil, Walt and team were really helpful throughout and clearly value excellent customer service. We went with Formula Sun on the basis of a recommendation from a friend. The installers were friendly, punctual and efficient. The only minor detail that could be improved would be to include a thorough clean up after installation. But this is is a really minor quibble and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Formula Sun to others. Show additional information

Formula Sun stood out from the others, nice to speak to someone who is not a salesman and who obviously knows their stuff.
They didn’t try to up sell and quoted all the different brands. I was then able to speak to them again and had all my questions answered. I then had time to decide on the best system for us.
The install team were amazing and worked hard all day to get it done, Job well done.

Formula are good to deal with and initial paper work and panel placement was excellent.
John the instaler managed to get all the panels facing North so no shading a win for us.
Purchased 5 KW Fronius Symo inverter together with Longi 300 watt solar panels which was Formula Sun's recommendation.
Our first choice was LG panels but could not justify the price.

Installation was trouble free and all rubbish removed on completion.
285 watt panels were delivered first not 300 watt as quoted and invoiced.
The comment was they were probably out of stock and supplied 285 watt in lieu.

Were not impressed so Phil checked with the wholesaler and evidently they were picked incorrectly at their store.
300 watt panels were subsequently couriered so all worked out okay.
A case of buyer beware as i have no doubt if we did not check them the 285 watt would have been installed.

The system is performing as per conversations with Formula Sun averaging 39 to 41.9 KW per day for the last 8 days

We do have a system in place that picks up on potential warehouse picking errors, whereby we scan the panel serial numbers and our app automatically pre-checks with the client specifications loaded for the job. So this error would have been picked up and rectified prior to panel installation. It's unfortunately impossible to do this at the warehouse in the mornings as the jobs are pre-packed so well to avoid transport damage and simply forklifted onto the trailer.
Embarrassing in this case as the client picked up the problem before our system did, not our intention, just a case of human error.

Much better experience than dealing with a bigger company with salespeople. Nice to actually deal with the guys doing the installation! Show additional information
Great to deal with, no BS just great price for good quality gear and installed very soon after agreeing to go ahead.

I found the installer through Solar Quotes but was not one of the 3 initial quotes through Solar Quotes.
Found Solar Quotes extremely useful for information, reviews, etc.

One quoted and we went with them but the service they offered was rubbish - didn't answer emails etc. Formula Sun were great.

This was a very tricky job, fully customised double storey Modern Architectural home with beautiful folded aluminium roof pressing, and then logical and discreet inverter position in attached garage... yet switchboard positioned under the stairs inside the house (I mean come on?).

So i'm not really surprised that my initial quotation was more than the others, but I'm also not very surprised that it may have been difficult to find confident installers for this job. But we are Fremantle specialists and we do like to work on the challenging ones. All good solutions in the end and great to add solar to an impressive eco friendly design.

Phil and his team were very friendly and professional. From the first enquiry to installation and beyond their service was impeccable.
The system is top rate and the installers did a great job.
Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get a solar system installed.

I went with Formula Sun Solar as they were recommended by my son-in law and son, who were both impressed with their systems and the installation team.
I was just as impressed.

Phil the proprietor explained how everything would progress from start to finish and it did. The installers were just as good, answering all my questions on the day.

We have a few minor sags in our roof but all the panels sit flat on my roof. So well done! All the work was done very professionally and neatly.

After the install I got an email to say... We are only a phone call away if you have any questions or require help.

Bottom line: Excellent Service, Installation, Product, and After Sales Care.

Thank you Caroline, and it's true, as we stick to a small sized business you can email or call me at anytime and I will be fully conversant with your job. I think this does offer superior service than the giant retailers can achieve. Show additional information

I got a review from just about every solar bloke i could find, i had the good bad and the ugly quote on my place, Fromula sun solar shone through for us, we picked a local company with amazing reviews both on facebook and google. Phill listened and let me have the combination of inverter and panels i wanted. The installation was second to none. Im a Refrigeration Tech myself so i know a good install when i see one. The boys were quick polite and didn’t leave an ounce of rubbish. Phill advised me that the neighbours tree needed to go as it would affect our panels, now im pleased to say as we wait for the tree to be cut down our panels are reaching their design output each day of full sun and we cant wait to see how it does once the tree is gone! We went with the Goodwe inverter after originally wanting fronius, Im glad we did same warranty same specs and with the option to buy extended warranty even further then the fronius would go made my mind up. Thanks team. 5 star Show additional information
