Original Review on 13-01-2021:

Company was so good, I've used them again!

I found Raw Power & Lighting professional from our initial contact right through the whole process. Their communication throughout was very good. The salesman was professional and quite happy to answer my multitude of questions about the product and process involved for installation. I found the quote from RAW very detailed compared to other company quotes. The installation went well, the installers were punctual, professionally attired, did the job they came to do and cleaned up after themselves. RAW organised the paperwork needed to start the grid connection processes and followed up with a couple of queries I had post installation. Very happy customer! So happy, I have since had RAW back to help with another project at our home. Original ratings

Good all-round experience.

All you recommended companies provided fast, efficient, helpful and competitive quotes, with good follow-up. It was quite hard to choose between them. In the end we chose Raw Power. He came to our house, which was an advantage, although not essential. He was very competiive and persuaded us that the make of panels and the inverter were of good quality, depite not being the most highly recommended by you. The (outsourced) installation experience was excellent. Overall we wre surprised how painless and inexpensive it was to get a good-sized solar sytem.

Easy and effective install

The whole process from quotes to installation was easy.
SolarQuotes were very helpful and put me on to 3 installers.
We went with Nic from Raw Power. Great service, product and installation . Nothing was to hard. The cost was quoted upfront and there were no hidden costs as all. Nic even help organise a green loan through Plenti.

This website saved me $10000!

Prior to discovering this website I had another company quote me $10,000 (after the 2020 grant) for a very average system and low grade inverter thank's to Fynn's graph. I could tell this was not good but to be sure I started ringing companies and found that I was being quoted way too high. Furthermore, I went ahead and signed up elsewhere for quotes. The best 3 quotes I recieved were from Fynn's website and they were the best quality inverters and panels of any other dealer. 11 quotes later from multiple places I decided on Raw Power and Lightning for their exceptional quote, service, kind and patient explanation of process and their quality of product. I'm now a proud Solar owner and these guys really went above and beyond. Cannot recommend them enough, I already have to another friend, and will continue to send people to Fynn's website. You cannot go wrong. I was nearly taken for a very expensive ride over 10 years and they were very convincing. Now I am getting a way better deal all around and no one is taking advantage of me. Thank you Finn!

Great experience with Raw Power team

Very happy with the offering from Raw Power and Lighting. I had done a fair amount of research but Dan and Nic were extremely responsive and patient with my own process.

Dan was able to organise my Trina and Sungrow installation of 6.6kw to add to my existing 1.5kw legacy system. Getting the smart meter and hot water switch were logical additions to the package. Original lead time to install was around 4-5 weeks, but I was able to get installed sooner which was great to make use of Feb sun.

Certified installation team were efficient and did a good job. Able to answer my extra questions about the hot water switch and the Sungrow Monitoring App to make sure I understood how it all worked.

Dan and Nic were responsive post installation when I asked about some messages on the App and subsequent settings update on the Inverter. Thanks again Dan, Nic and install team!

Helpful and excellent supplier

Raw Power & Lighting came to see our roof and house which provided us with peace of mind that they understood what was required, and provided helpful insights that went beyond just the solar panels (e.g. directing us to websites that would help us seek the best energy deal). They also responded really quickly to our questions and could fit us in before Christmas.
The installation went really well - they were on time and did a tidy job.
They also helped complete the necessary paperwork to organise the grid connection after the install - that was really helpful.

Great service

Came out to see our house in person prior to quoting (the only that did) and provided quick responses to my questions at all hours. Install went very smoothly despite wet weather and tricky terracotta roof. System seems to be working great so far. Thank guys!

Timely installation - system is working great!

I obtained the detailers of three installers from solarquotes. One rang me on the phone and from that provided a quote. One did not contact me at all. Dan from Raw Power and Lighting rang me the same day and organised a site visit. During the visit he was able to provide an excellent description of the options and expected performance. He also answered several questions by email in the week or two following the visit whilst I was deciding which provider to choose.

Once I paid the deposit things moved very quickly with the system installed within a week. The installation was completed in one day and we were left with a working system at the end of the day. There were a couple of problems with the configuration of the system monitoring (not effecting power production) which were resolved in the week or so after the installation.

Overall I am very happy. In the couple of weeks since the installation we have been generating more power than we are consuming, and the monitoring software from Solaredge is fantastic.

Stellar job!

Fully recommend!

Dan came to the house and provided in depth info about the inverters and panels suitable for our place. Made it super clear how it was all going to work and also helped explain what type of energy plan we would need for maximum results.

Installation happened incredibly quickly and the installers did a terrific job. Really tidy work.

Dan even came by a few weeks later and shot drone footage of our house. That was awesome, I'd never seen our place from the air and he sent me through the high-res pics. Above and beyond! The panels on the roof look fantastic and perfectly symmetrical, incredible work.

We couldn't be happier choosing Raw Power & Lighting.

Cheers to Dan, Nic and the team! Stellar job!

Great Customer Service

Dan took his time to sit with me to go through the options (compared to one of the other companies that pretty much showed up, gave me a brochure and left), and kept following things up right through and past the installation process. The sparkies on the day were extremely professional and friendly. Would happily recommend.

Fabulous service

The entire process from start to finish was amazing. I had an obligation free quote provided in a short amount of time, installation was fast and efficient. The tradesman were friendly, efficient, tidy and punctual as well as very informative.

They also helped me with all the grant paperwork and organised the grid connection after the install plus checked up on my latest bill recently to make sure the whole package had worked as per anticipated savings etc.
