New 3 phase solar system 2021 installation

I'm fussy, We have just built a brand new house that has taken 9 months to design and 2 years as is a custom build and I am like i said fussy on everything.

After speaking with the Sales team, I was assured that the quality of the installation would be excellent and I would be involved in the discussion on where everything, ie location of inverter, panels and most importantly conduits and cable runs would be.
I was assured via an email that the installation would be up to my (high) standard I have an email from management assuring me of this prior to installation.

I have to say that the installation guys where as was promised especially Mark, everything was as I asked for
no exposed conduits all cables run in cavity walls to a high standard.

I'm am an Engineer and understand what can and can't be done.

I would highly recommend this company and that is saying something from me as i'm very fussy.

Please see pictures of inverter like i said no exposed conduits or cables very nice job.

Mark even went to level of re-aligning labels on the inverter because they where not 100% level and he wasn't happy with the way they looked.

What a 5 star Solar experience and company!

Unbelievable first rate service and professionalism from my Design Consultant. He made the whole process a breeze and I couldn't be happier with the Solar System I purchased or the Installation that will surely be first rate. Easily a total of 5 stars for all aspects here. Totally awesome! Show additional information

Most satisfied

Very professional sales person. After a few hiccups, the installation was installed to our satisfaction. The installers were all polite and tidy and everything so far seems to be going well. Show additional information

Great service and value

Great value, great service, good people and professional. i will be recommending/referring MLEC to family and friends.

Tristain (sales) - An honest and proactive sales man. Not many sales people these days put the customer solution before the sale.
Ben (Operations) - problem solver, pragmatic with customer needs as a priority.
Mat and Wolf (install) - Very polite and although the install was tough (old building) - there were very polite, happy and very professional.
Jake and Trent (install and commissioning) - The equipment supplier stuffed Jaime about for a few days but he was very persistent, kept me up to date and ensured everything works. Trent was also very polite, friendly and professional.
Tee (Customer Service)- always kept me uptodate and no problem was too big

Thank you MLEC and keep up the good work.

Quality parts and panels

Quotation was excellent, installation forgot to hand paper work over and cut half of the house power off due to one wire in the incorrect spot. Show additional information

Corrected an installation misunderstanding promptly and without argument. Recommended.

Paid a fair price for best option and got the quality of service I sought. Show additional information

Great Support

The Mlec quote was basically identical to the other company and included the removal of my old system. The Inverter was the same although the panels used were slightly smaller in output but of similar quality. The company arrived on time on the designated day and although the installers experienced difficulties and were unable to uninstall the old system they arranged for a another day and all went well
I felt very comfortable with this company and the service provided
Show additional information

Very happy with the Power Generation from my new Solar System

MLEC does seem to have some issues with their scheduling. No one showed up for the first meeting with the sales consultant. When I notified them, they were very apologetic. The second appointment was fine. The installation team turned up 5 days earlier than I was informed that they would be onsite. As it turned out it didn't matter so the system was installed earlier than I was expecting.
The installation went very smoothly. There was an old system that had to be removed first and I was charged a very nominal fee for the removal of that system. I was expecting it to be more expensive.
Overall I am very happy with the system that has been installed. 6.5Kw of Sunpower P series panels and a 5Kw 3 phase SMA inverter. It has been generating on average between 35-40Kwh per day (cool sunny days).

Great system, price reasonable but no after sales service

Update to review, 26/10/2020:
So to update where I am with MLEC - Tuhira from MLEC contacted me on Wed 21 Oct to apologise for my requested service going unanswered. In the course of our conversation it became apparent he was reading from my initial review with Solar Quotes (he mentioned the three star rating) so I can 100% endorse the effectiveness of the feedback process. Tuhira admitted they had no record of my phone call and he could not find my email with screen prints to their Customer Service email address - but they had also not realised my bill was unpaid! I forwarded him my original email so he could see the email address used, and when it was originally sent.

Tuhira attempted to walk me through a solution but it simply wouldn't work (phone app and Fronius webpage both denied I existed!). So he despatched Robyn out to my house the next morning and after about an hour of toing and froing, phone calls to Tuhira, they eventually managed to get my inverter connected and talking to the app. I waiting 24 hours to make sure it was stable before I settled my account.

Original review:
Installed on 24 Sept but app has never worked and inverter shows as offline on the Fronius website. Phoned MLEC for assistance on 29 Sept (under their much vaunted 48 hr service guarantee) and was promised a call back. Followed up with an email to their customer service email address, complete with screen prints outlining the problem. Have not heard back since. Luckily I have so far only paid them a deposit ($500) with $5k still outstanding - I'm sure they will contact me at some stage to get their money. Which they will not be getting till these problems have been rectified.

Highly recommend MLEC

Friendly sales person, very well informed and not pushy. I felt comfortable asking questions and he took the time to explain everything. Installation went as planned, the guys turned up on time were polite and friendly and cleaned up afterwards. Show additional information

Everything went smoothly! Easy installation in one day.

We had Brendan, he was fantastic, he sat us down and drew diagrams and explained everything to us in plan that my husband understood. He was on time and very helpful and friendly.
The installation was meant to be a 2 day job but they finished it in one day. Very happy. Polite, tidy and yes on time.
Not sure on what the grid connection part means sorry.

Overall a very positive experience.

Sales staff were very professional and responsive. Answered all my questions and provided a system at the price point I was seeking. The installation team were also very professional, arrived on time and were flexible with placement of both the panels and the inverter. Show additional information

Great Service

Very happy with seamless service from quote to install. Install team were neat, efficient and friendly. Show additional information

Good throughout

Sales and quoting was very prompt with very competitive pricing. The tiles on our roof are not very robust and hard to find replacements indeed we couldn’t find any prior to the install. Inevitably installation resulted in quite a few roof tiles broken but MLEC were able to very quickly find replacements (when we could not) and replace the broken tiles. All staff were very friendly and cleaned up to a high standard. Would recommend. Show additional information

Excellent service and Install

I had done quite a bit of research before meeting with Steve so I knew exactly what I was after. They arranged everything with synergy and western power and arrived on time 2 weeks later for installation which went very smoothly. The guys were super friendly and did a professional, tidy job. Followed up with a call a week later to ensure everything was going well and I was happy with the service. Highly recommend MLEC everyone I dealt with were lovely and install could not have gone better. Show additional information

Great experience, professional and good value

I had already researched my options so had a good idea prior to the salesman visit. Very accommodating with my requirements no problems with a couple of changes to panel layout. Due to the SENEC V3 being a relatively new product to their range there were a couple of issues with the extra smart power backup but resolved without problems.
Really clean installation as the SENEC V3 is a combined inverter/battery and freestanding.

Excellent customer service.

sales and quoting was very helpful informative without the hard sell of "if you buy now ...."

Installers were timely helpful, courteous, came with spare tiles and I don't think used any, and cleaned up after themselves

Pre and post customer service was excellent, helpful, and went the second mile.

A simple and reliable process

From the start everything was easy and less effort than expected. Applications and meter reprogramming was all handled promptly without fuss. The installation guys turned up on time, were good and keen to provide what we wanted. It was a surprise to have another person come out as a QC check a few weeks later to ensure it was done correctly. There has been nice follow up to make sure it is working well.

Great customer service!

We were super happy with the Quote and the speed of installation. After receiving our first power bill about 7weeks later we discovered that the system was not performing as projected and got in contact with the company. They were great in helping us check the performance and predicting what the problem could be! The very next day they sent out an electrician to check on the problem. He was very professional and was able to fix the problem very quickly! We hope to now enjoy the benefits of our new solar power! Show additional information

Excelent sales, installation and service.

I would recommend this company to anyone considering solar installation. I was reluctant at first to sign up due to the Covid situation but the friendly sales person gave me a very good deal (discount) so I signed up - no regrets. Variety of payment options makes budgeting easy. The installation was professionally completed and grid connected on the scheduled day on time. Initial display.readings of solar panel power output was good on the day. Follow up calls were appreciated. Very pleased with overall service. Show additional information

Happy customer

Overall from the sales point of view and the installation we have been very pleased with our system. They were somewhat slow in answers to a small issue we experienced but it has not affected the performance of the solar Show additional information
