Regen Power 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:
As other reviews here, I purchased Suntech panels but Longi was installed. System appears to be running well with the Fronius Inverter. I was not present during the installation as this installation was on a property that I rent out and the tenants will receive the benefit. I only learnt that Longi panels had been substituted when I received the final invoice. There was no discussion with me. A few hiccups along the way but got sorted. Corresponded with the Managing Director as to the lack of communication when substituting panels. More of my time spent in having to research the Longi panels. Whilst the Longi panels were a slight upgrade - however there were specific reasons I chose Suntech which Longi did not meet. Regen did offer to replace the panels but this is more of an environmental impact in doing so (look at the amount of packaging) plus the inconvenience). Better communication is required. No discount offered for the messing around and my extra time to sort out matters with them. The question is, would I use them again to replace the solar on my own home, yes I would.

Booked to have a 6.6 kw system installed to our house fronius inverter with 22 suntech mono perc 300 watt panels. Paid our deposit of $500.00 on the 12.02.19. Their rep attended photos etc discussed inverter location and reassured all good to go. Sub contractor rang to book job for the 20.02.19 subbies on time and had knowledge on equipment sorry can't put the inverter where the rep said it could be mounted ok will have to move it we went through the pre start paperwork and i noticed that the suntech panels had been whiteout on the paperwork and longi panels were to be installed, so much for a written contract when i rang regen the excuses followed ran out of suntech panels so we thought we would do you a favour really what about getting in contact with the customer rather than rolling up on site on the day of installation with the wrong equipment. NEXT phone call its our company policy to contact the client before the installation to advise you of changes had 8 days to inform me on changes not after i noticed the amended paperwork on the day of install NEXT phone call regen trying to cover up their mistakes by blaming wholesaler for not having equipment blah blah. NEXT phone call from manager ,we going to pull subbies off job so much for my time off can't wait to invoice regen for the loss of income so as a extremely bad experience with this company all i can say is read paperwork and my best advice is run baby run Show additional information

Keep it up Finn.

Very professional. Excellent price! $300 cheaper than other quotes. I was prepared to pay more for the "better" European inverter but asked them to be honest and recommend instead. They were..advising me to take the Goodwe instead. ($800 cheaper) They would have given me the Fronius if I wanted...Both offer a 10 year warantee through the company. Installers were professional and worked very hard all day making sure my tiled roof was dead flat so that all panels woud sit perfectly..Electrical work was thorough and completed very professionally.
Arun the sales rep was always very helpful..couldn't do enough for me. Could ring him any time. Not pushy even over payments. I had to ring Regen to pay the balance after all was installed. 2 weeks later and all is well. Phone app works brilliantly. Every day I recieve an email summarising the previous days performance. Most days I am producing 40 kw+ beat that.....It is summer and I live in Perth. I have recommended them to 2 of my neighbours who have also gone ahead....Hope they give them the same service I got...

Used Solarquotes late in the game, wish I had checked it first. Step 1 was Synergy, Step 2 was Google for Deals. Step 3 was solarquotes youtube and step 5 was solarquotes. By the time those three got back to me I was already essentially decided with one of the ones from google, but I was able to speak with the others to see if there was anything they had above what I had found.

Mostly good, I chose the 6.6Kwh GCL panels with Hauwei Sun 2000L inverter which was the recommended system for me and it works very well. The not so good part comes from the installation, the workmanship was good but when it came to commissioning the Hauwei inverter the installer could not get the WiFi to connect but said that because both the green lights were flashing the system was operating OK and left. When checking online the supplied WiFi passwords were incorrect but I still could not connect to the unit. Further checking of the installation manual showed that the green lights were flashing indicating that the inverter had PV and grid power but was was not working, turns out that the inverter was not turned on at the master switch hidden underneath the unit. After following the power up sequence the inverter and WiFi worked OK. If I had believed the installer and not checked I would not have known of a problem till my next bill came in with NO difference to the regular bill. Show additional information
There was little information available about three phase systems. E.g is it acceptable to use a single phase inverter on a three phase house?
This is a purchase I would advise everyone to be fully informed before making a purchasing decision. I found the Solar Quotes site had the most useful information in the one place, well worth the time reading through it.

Regen had no pushy sales pitch which I experienced from other suppliers
Regen provided sufficient information about the desired product, installation was scheduled quickly and the installation completed as planned and very professionally by the installation team
Regen has assisted me already with after sale support in regards to the wifi connection
Great price
Would recommend

Customer service was mixed. We found Sam Muraleedharan excellent but after installation the rest of the team were not so good - slow to follow up on our queries, including the flickering inverter display that we could not read, and lacking in clear explanation of how things worked, what info we could or could not get from the app. All our queries were addressed in the end, after quite a few calls to Regen, and we are happy with the system which is delivering well. But we would have expected better service when spending several thousand dollars. Show additional information

What a shambles of a company. Will not honour their warranty. They cannot find a record of our first installed unit that blew up! Now they have no record of the replacement unit being installed and don't want to know about fixing it even though it has a different brand name from that of the original install.! Did a Google search and now i can understand other frustrations. Be extremely careful when dealing with this organisation. All smiles when you hand over cash till you require warranty work and the attitude turns sour...Be aware! Show additional information

Pricing is very competitive. Its much better than most of the other quotes I received from Solar quotes. They are also very informative on the whole process. I called them countless times and changed my decision few times but they keep sticking with me and helping me to decide the best system. Their technicians arrived on time and did a good job on the installation. Very happy. Show additional information
Solar quotes you guys need to review the retailers you work with. Quotes received was expensive plus not from so established company.

Regen was impressive from initial contact to installation. They gave best price on the first quote while other retailers( refered by solar quotes) came back and tried to match price.

Also, they did site visit before signup.

Keep up the good work Regen. Definitely recommend

Install is due on 21st May.

Regen power in canningvale have been exceptional from first contact, to site visit, to booking for install. I trust the end product will be at the same level

Comparing to solar quotes suppliers, their professionalism is leaps in front. Also the end price for the same system panels and inverter is $450 better than your closest. Using same framework and same cable quality

I chose a different supplier from the ones Solar Quotes suggested only because of price, i happened to come across a sale another supplier was having at the time of looking and it was for ther same equipment is was looking at getting. It was your site that gave me the confidence to choose these brands (Fronius inverter and 280kw Jinko panels) and also previous reviews from your site about Regen Power. Is not installed yet so i cannot comment on install or how it is performing. Show additional information
Great service - open and honest and not pushy. Would recommend to anyone. Show additional information

I chose this company over others because it has been operating 14 years so is local to my area. Another I looked into had only been operating 8 months and already had a name change. Show additional information
Very professional approach. Plenty of information provided and all questions answered during the quote. Installers arrived exactly on time and work was done by certified electrician. The whole installation team was absolutely fantastic. Show additional information
Although I didn't go with one of the suppliers you referred I did find your website very help and informative. The only reason I went with a different supplier was because they had an advertisement in our local paper and they were very cheap. I also read reviews of the Panels, Inverters and the company itself from your webiste and found that they had pretty good reviews so I decided to go ahead with them. Show additional information
This installation was as good as the first time I used them. I was keen to use them again because I had a good experience the first time. The price was actually the lowest too for a 5kw inverter / 6.5kw panels. Show additional information
I did the usual ... three quotes from 3 companies based upon various advertisements I had seen online and the local community newspaper.

Regen Power were competitive. Plus I liked the fact they have been around for more than 10 years which gave me a comfortable feeling that I was not going to be scammed.

They answered all my email questions promptly and so I said yes.

Their installer was a sub-contract company who contacted me promptly to organise arrival times, etc.

On the day, when it was absolutely pouring with rain they contacted me to say that the conditions mean they couldn't install. Yep! I knew this.

They called back the next day to arrange an alternative date. On the day the 2 installers arrived and did a fantastic job. I couldn't fault them.

So... 24 hours after the install... I am happy.

I shall post a follow up soon.

I purchased 2 x 6.4 kW systems for 2 properties. I found a limited number of companies that would instal outside the Perth metro area. Two of the companies provided by you were such. Show additional information
A big variance in Quotes.
Virtually the same Products, Fronius inverter plus Jinko Panels.
Regen gave me their best price up front, with a number of options available, others tried to requote, after I had made a decision.
Installation was fast and efficient.

We installed 1.5 kW 5 years ago and 3 kW recently from Regen Power, having been referred to them by word of mouth. Very impressed with quality of product and service, from quote to detailed explanation, site visit, installation and after sale check. Smooth process shows their 14-year record in WA, the longest of all solar suppliers we're told. Show additional information
RegenPower their price was much better than any other quote. The installers were very professional. and left my house tidy and clean as it was when they arrived.
I think I got the best system possible for the best price.

The Solar Quotes site is really good and I appreciated the huge amount of practical information provided and structured in a really helpful manner.

Unfortunately, the word of mouth referral I received for Regen meant that the three Solar Quotes parties pricing/quality was easily surpassed by the Regen offer.

The hardest part of solar PV choice for us mums and dads is sizing and understanding how the solar energy needs to be consumed rather than exported under current utility arrangements. I moved from 3kW to 5kW on this basis. The Solar Quotes site helped me a lot with this concept.

It has been 4 months since I bought a 5 kW system from Regen Power. Working well and the customer service has been anything less than splendid. Will definitely recommend them to any one in Perth. Show additional information
One of your three recommended companies declined to deal with us due to our having a two-storey house. Show additional information

Great backup support. Minor issue experienced after commissioning - very quick response and resolved without issue. Well worth using a local supplier and going with a premium product Show additional information
I was surprised with the vast number of panels and inverters out there in the market making it difficult to evaluate. There is also such a huge difference in price for supposedly the same or similar units. I eventually settled on an SMA inverter and Infinity panels which I am currently very happy with. The installers were very good and we could compromise on specific location for panels on available roof space and inverter. Show additional information
