Everyone knows your name

The initial phone call to let me know about Pioneer Solar was fantastic, no pushing for us to go through with it at all. Sales rep who came out to our home (which is out of town) spoke it terms that even our kids could understand what he was saying. Installer were fantastic, they worked like a well oiled machine. The call from the ladies in the office was great, they were so friendly and helpful. One of the biggest thing for me was that they all knew our names.

From the first time that they came to our property they were professional and knew there products. They system was installed very professionally, all the contractors that came out were all nice and friendly. Our system took longer to get setup due to our location and the recent floods and fires that we had in North Queensland. But it has been sorted. Highly recommended and the brand's that they use are good quality.

Prompt, courteous service. Arrived half an hour earlier than expected. Spoke to me politely and included me in decisions that needed to be made. Put the wheelie bins out so they wouldn't be missed.

One of the worst companies I have dealt with, up front sales person was ok but down from there, the office person was rude and unhelpful and didn't do what he said he would do, The salesperson was totally uncontactable after the sale, their electrician was rude and abrupt, came to do a job, turned power off without notice and didn't even come to the front door to tell us he was doing a job. This was months after the install, we had to wait months to get an export system. Then months later I was on the roof and found only half the system was even turned on. Many regrets we used them

I am immensely impressed with Growatt, both in Shenzen China and Australia. (They co-ordinate effectively and very quickly indeed.)
When needed, they answer the call, - and they do it immediately - no delay, no delay whatsoever at all..

Original Review on 27-10-2017:

Origin Energy has very much disappointed us. Before we finally decided to proceed with the PV installation, we talked by phone with a member of the Solar division of Origin who assured us we would be paid 14 cents FIT. We find now that we are only going to get 7 cents. Obviously, this has seriously affected our pay-back calculations adding almost another year to the pay-back period. We find ourselves in a he-said she-said situation and stuck with the 7 cents FIT. Origin did however increase the level of discount to include the supply rate as well as any electricity rate. We wanted to stay with Origin, but will consider switching after our next account. Original ratings

8 months later we asked James: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

We actually haven't had the PV system for a full 12 months yet, having installed it in October 2017, so I hope I am not being too optimistic with the following. Excluding the first quarter's electricity account, as the cost of the new PV meter was included in that account and that cost was covered by the saving in our bill, we are delighted with the fact that our second account was a small credit realising a savings of >$350, even allowing for the Qld Govt electricity rebate. This in effect is about 7% of our total installation cost and if this return is maintained, the system will have paid for itself in under 4 years. Furthermore, sidelining the calculations of the system's efficiency, when consideration is given to the fact that for an all-up outlay of $5,584 under today's very low investment rates of <3% would net a $168 return. But for the same investment on our roof and conservatively estimating a saving of $1,000 per year on our electricity accounts would net an ~18% return. This is a great return on investment by anyone's calculation. So yes, we are indeed very pleased with our decision to install our PV system and very happy with the equipment and installers thus far.

I recently bought my solar power system through Pioneer Solar and have had a very good experience overall.
The customer service has been excellent. My first bill came in after it was it was installed amd after only 5 weeks out of the quarter with them my bill nearly cut in half!

I am very pleased!

We have done a lot of research into upgrading from our 1.5 kW to a 6 kW system. From the beginning of the discussions with Pioneer Solar, the professionalism was second to none. The salesman was very knowledgeable, the follow-up was timely & the installers were brilliant! Definitely recommend this company.

Shocking, is the best way to describe it. In the 3 years I have had this system, it has broken down 5 times. Each time it takes usually a week and a half to get someone here to repair it. I have had the inverter completely replaced twice. I'm often lied to with the promise of a call back, that doesn't happen or the promise to send a repair person, who doesn't turn up. My recommendation to anyone considering Pioneer Solar is avoid them!

Would've been better if installers were from the supplier company. They did a good job anyway.
Was quoted for 24 panels but could only fit 21 panels on the roof.
