HCB Solar Solar Reviews

We follow up with all reviewers after 12 months to see how their system is going since it was installed. These are all the reviewers who have responded to our 1 year follow up:
The installation team went about their work quickly, quietly and efficiently. The follow up communication and system training was first rate. Show additional information
I received excellent customer service from all the staff at HCB Solar. They all have excellent product knowledge and are highly experienced from the lovely ladies in the office to the salesmen and installers. Even after our system has been installed the after sales service has been above and beyond professional and excellent. I would highly recommend HCB solar to anyone looking for a high quality solar system that is backed by a well established local company with exceptional service. Show additional information

Our original supplier, Solar Australia, went into liquidation the day before we were scheduled to have the system installed. On the recommendation of the installer, we contacted HCB Solar who quoted us on the same system at a slightly higher but more realistic price which we accepted. The panels have only been installed a couple of days and our energy supplier has not yet been out to fix the meter so the system is not yet up and running and we are unable to give a qualitative analysis at this stage.

The other suppliers proffered by Solar Quotes quoted on systems which were way away from what we wanted (and what we briefed them on).

Our business engaged HCB Solar to install a 29kW ground mount array in the Hunter Valley. Prior to signing any contract we met with HCB to gauge their ability to install the job professionally and safely. We were not disappointed. Two engineers (electrical and mechanical) from our business were very impressed with the knowledge of the HCB staff. From sales, design and through to installation HCB knew their stuff.

Our ground mounted array is now generating more than expected and is saving us significant amounts on our substantial electrical bills.

I have no hesitation in recommending HCB Solar.

I am university educated and have three trades, I research all my projects to a huge degree so I am fully aware of what I am talking about with companies. I received quotes from a number of solar companies and it was surprising how many were 'all talk', and didn't understand their products. Although I didn't go with Finns quotes, I did take full advantage of his forum. HCB solar are local to me and I did want to use a local company. I fully recommend HCB solar at Beresfield NSW (newcastle). Their prices were perfect but most importantly their tradesmen were professional, well manored and thorough in their workmanship. I get super annoyed at poor tradesmen but these guys well surpased my expectations. I fully recommend HCB solar. Show additional information
I would not hesitate to recommend HCB Solar to prospective buyers in the Newcastle / Hunter region. All their staff (sales, installers and admin) really know their stuff and go out of their way to make sure you're happy with the job. They are not the cheapest in the Newcastle area, but they only deal in higher quality product with a customer service focus. Show additional information
I received really great advice and outstanding service. Would recommend HCB Solar to everyone. Show additional information
Considerable confusion exists within the industry regarding due process. I have been advised today that the electricity supplier should approve any installation prior to any hardware installation taking place. In our case the supplier/installer originally placed an application for approval with an electricity supplier that does not service our location.

We are now faced with a 8 week delay to obtain approval for connection to the grid although all hardware other than metering is currently installed.
