Regen Power Solar Reviews

Value for money. Highly recommend.

The experience was seamless from beginning to end. After getting quotes from the 3 suppliers through Solarquotes, Regen Power was recommended by my neighbour. Their service was great and efficient from beginning to end. Unlike the other suppliers they did not try to differentiate on personal sell, technical details or other sales techniques. They simply delivered a great value for money package 25% cheaper than the rest. I was happy with their quoting, installation arrangements as well as the final product. Can recommend highly.

Excellent

From sales, product enquiries, to installation, all the way they were all good and left me satisfied. Couldn't ask for more. Show additional information

Good choice in solar supplier

Regen Power answered all my questions by responding to calls and emails very quickly and kept me informed of the installation process every step of the way, their customer service was faultless, they were able to supply me with equipment I requested and their price was at the lower end of the quotes I received for the same equipment.

The installation was carried out by a subcontractor, this was not made clear to me in my initial contact with the company and may have influenced my decision to go with another company, however, the installers were very professional and I can't fault the work they did, they were also fast and efficient, taking ~5 hours to install the whole system, a credit to Sandi and his team.

There was an issue with the Fronius smart-meter that was installed, it initially did not work, but subsequently, after 48hrs, started to work, I believe this was an issue on the Fronius side, but the installer kept me informed by phone and even came over a few days later to check the system.

My system is working very well and exceeding my expectations.

I don't buy a lot of solar systems, I've held an electrical contractors license for 40 years and these guys are good

3 guys turned up on-time, worked well together and fitted a 6.6kW 20 panel system on my small roof and drive away just before two pm. older koncrete tiles treated with care and none broken. download app to smartphone and connect with QR code very easy, before three PM i had a good system generating 2.3kw in the dying winter sun and all the relevant numbers on my phone. I could not be happier. Show additional information

Very happy from start to finish

I was very sceptical before I ventured on the path of getting solar PV installed by Regen Power. Although a friend of mine had successfully installed a system with the company previously, I had also read some reviews and they were not all that great. However, the sales consultant answered all my questions (there were many) and made me feel very comfortable from when I started my research until I actually made my decision. It was pure professionalism throughout and I didn’t feel pressured to buy at all. Other companies were happy to try to steer me away from the likes of Regen Power, but I was impressed that the Regen Power sales consultant only focused on what Regen can do, without saying bad about others. The common comment from other companies was the fact that Regen has subcontractors that install the systems (rather than in house installers) and they had to come in and fix issues caused by these subcontractors afterwards. However, the installation was done without any problems and I felt other companies just use it as a sales tactic. Fortunately it didn’t work on me, quite the opposite. The good sales service, smoothness of ordering and professional installation is despite Regen’s very competitive price (and actually the lowest out of the 5 quotes I obtained). The whole process was smooth from start to finish and I’m very happy with the results. Show additional information

Generally all round good service

The company were the only ones that sent someone to the house to doa site inspection and went round to show us where the nest place for the inverter Asked is we were happy with the proposed east west configuration of the panels and said we could have some on the north facing roof if required
The person that I spoke to on the telephone initially to do the quote was very well informed and was the only sales person that did not ask me who I had got other quote from. The other companies asked me who else i had asked to quote and proceeded to give a number of reasons why those companies were not reliable and to criticise them and generally try to taint their reputation.
I did not find this helpful when what I needed to know was what was their service like, not how bad they thought the others were
The appointment for the installation was made, the two electricians were there on time. They were very polite and very tidy and were happy to answer any questions that we asked.
It was all up and running my mid afternoon and they spent time with us going over the app for the phone and laptop

Poor quality installation and No customer service

Had installed Solar system in my new home, Main Switch RCD burned after 3 months because of poor quality workman ship, Loose terminal connection and what not. They even did not put fire safety sealer in the meter, which is a huge safety hazard,. had to spend $400 to fix it all. Contacted Regen power multiple times, no response of emails and denying their fault completely.

Not an experience I wanted with my new home.

Not recommended !!!

Beware

Office people use subcontractors to install fitted different panels to quoted. Had over voltage issues they make excuses and say get western power out which have done twice all good their end blame everyone else for problems without checking themselves would reccommend going elsewhere. Now saying feed cables into property must be to blame and to dig them up and replace them. Thats after western power saying they are fine and without regen power even checking them Show additional information

I could not recommend Regen Solar.

The company quoted me for Longi panels, but installed Suntech. They replaced the panels when I pointed out their mistake. They did try quite hard to convince me keep the Suntech panels. Installation was fast, and I am happy with the end result. Show additional information

Efficient Process from Start to Commissioning of PV System

The consultant was very informative and focussed on my situation - Two-storey house, 3 Phase system & existing panels in place. Also the gable roof required a splitting of the arrays, which gives longer power production during the day (currently 45-46 KWH daily). The installers were efficient, polite & punctual and a very pleasant team of young men who knew their job, and didn't cut corners. The new system was connected to the grid efficiently and the Fronius Inverter was connected to my wi-fi so that the monitoring of the system's performance on my home computer & iPhone could be set up with the help of a You-Tube video I found (SolarWeb app connection). The system suppliers upgraded the panels initially quoted from Risen 330W to JA Solar 330W panels. Show additional information

Quick and easy. Big problems since hot weather.

Easy company to deal with.
Install was quick and easy.
Installers damaged part of my roof for the patio but that was ignored.
Now the weather is hot the system is constantly tripping.
Have reported to the company but getting no where quick.
The inverter puts out 20.5 amps with my 5kw fronius inverter and longitude panels.
The circuit breaker they installed for the system is only 20 amps.
Issue still ongoing.
Board was even re certified by the technicians.

Still waiting to see if this gets resolved.

Will update if resolved.

Good value ?

Just installed, 4k for tier 1 panels with a 15 year product warranty and Fronius inverter seemed good value. Time will tell! Show additional information

OK

Good installers, don’t know about Regen power. I don’t have the app working on my phone is the only problem Show additional information

Great value

Regen provided a fast and comprehensive quote by email, and followed up with additional information when I requested it. Installation was hampered by their technician who failed to identify that concrete slab over garage would require core drilling to install inverter. Install was rescheduled and the contractors did a great job. Show additional information
Your info on the brands acceptable ( Kia - Bmw ) is what that helped me in my selection.
Keep it up Finn.

Misleading information and horrible service

The sales and quoting process was ok.
However, I asked for 6.6kW system quotes. Got a few options and I picked one with 22 panels as it's more affordable. I specifically asked the Sale Consultant if my roof would fit 22 panels and if he should send someone to measure it. He said yes, no need to measure it and sent me a picture of the plan.

On the installation day, the installer advised me that my roof could not fit 22 panels, maximum he could do is 20 panels.
I tried to contact the Sale Consultant to sort out but he wasn't available. I tried to be nice so I let installer go ahead to finish his job. I got nothing after it,

I have had great communication with the sales person who was always very responsive. After receiving initial quotations for a variety of different products within their range I've narrowed it down to a different product combination.
When I had a number of very specific questions at the end the sales stuff appeared to be out of their depth and at times I felt like I knew already more than he did.
The after sales service has been OK so far.

I already had a 1.5 kva and 3 kva installed previously. wanted a 5 kva system installed but Western Power (WA ) KNOCKED ME BACK AS I EXCEEDED 8.2 KVA. What I was looking for was 4 x 250 w panels to add to excisting 3 kva which was advice from them utilising allowed additional one third capacity. Have spoken to installer who are looking out for me to get some, so was looking for help in acquiring. On reflection I should have scrapped the 1.5 kva and had the 5 and 3 on roof keepingunder regs here in WA. Show additional information
Cant ask for anything better, signed up system on 11th March with the site visitor and got system installed in 1 week. Fast and prompt service.

I opt Longi instead of cheaper brands like Risen or Suntech and as my research said they are the best Mono panels in market who specialize only in manufacturing Mono wafers

Installers were on time and polite

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

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
