Great installers

Sales / quoting process went well, their salesperson came out to see us (some others had tried to do simply over the phone, looking online a roof size etc), and explained the system, how it works, pros and cons of the different brands. Being new to solar, this was very helpful.

Installation went well, all done in a day and they covered things we didn't think / know about like the inverter installed on the south facing wall out of direct sun etc (to be fair the power meter is also there but only in more recent newsletters did I read about this).

Only issue with installation, a roof tile was cracked using installation although not externally obvious. Shortly after we had some heavy rain over several days and I noticed discolouration in the ceiling. After climbing in to the roof and seeing the problem, their staff came out and replaced the tile for us as it was under system straight away.

Also initially had some problems getting readings in the app which they came out and helped us sort out.

My only suggestion would be the explanation of the app connectivity etc was a bit rushed at end of day. A better explanation / instructions would have helped us.

Other than this - very happy with system, seeing savings already and would recommend them to others.

Fantastic service, fast and responsive, exactly what I needed

I needed a company to remove my old system, plan a new system through our renovation and provide a large and cost-effective system for us. RK Solar came out the same day, provided a flexible and configurable quote as well as excellent advice. They removed the old system and will install the new one once the builders are ready.

Great install - high standards, knowledgeable & quality work

This is my second solar install by RK Solar. The first was a 4.2k with enphase inverters (2016) - that system worked perfectly. Moving to a new home in Feb 2021 we decided to request quotes for a 9.9kW system with micro inverters. Having received 3 quotes and spoken to several installers we decided to again engage RK Solar - we were not disappointed with the result.

The RK Solar service from start to finish was great - good communication at every step, answering my questions promptly and to our satisfaction. The actual install quality was excellent with two very capable installers. Our install was a little unusual and included 5 roof surfaces with east, north, west orientations - the installers handle this without any drama and discussed the position of each array before work began. The enlighten monitoring box was installed exactly as discussed with very tidy cabling. Our installers took pride in their work - they did not rush, cut corners or leave trash. All grid connection paperwork was handled by RK Solar.

Overall an outstanding job. We believe our decision to use a reputable, established business with proven track record over many years was validated. It was not the cheapest quote but I'm confident it was value for money with the best
possible outcome.

Installed today, not yet connected. System 8.14 kW Enphase, 22xTrina panels.

System (Great), Install (Fantastic), Service (a little lacking but improvable)

System. Really happy to go with Enphase. AC, is flexible & expandable. I've had prior experience with DC short circuits and prefer not to go there again.

Install. Had a great experience with Habib & his crew (Victorian installers) today. Worked hard, did a great job, polite & cleaned up after. Had the sense and adaptability to install the system that was best for our situation

Service. RK Solar is NSW based, this install is one of their first forays into Vic, so I expected that there would be a few road humps along the way. And there were.

Considering that, they did pretty well but probably needed to think a bit more about
. how goods are delivered. Communication about deliveries was good but most goods were delivered by single drivers who needed help from you to unload to a safe place.
. Delays. I suspect things went a bit astray between the original Vic salesperson I dealt with and RK solar. I had my own delays in organising finance and by the time I had that settled, I guess he'd moved on.
Things got a bit rushed in the end but RK still honoured everything I had worked out and been quoted previously.

All up, pretty happy

Original Review on 16-12-2020:

It's a long process

RK Solar was the only company to send out a sales person.

Their installers were very good working late to get things completed.

Had to chase them up for initial installation date, to come back and finish the install and the grid connection.

Final installation - 31 Trina panels with micro inverters and powerwall 2 battery

Although I conducted lots of research - mainly on the SolarQuotes sites I still got caught out over some things and maybe they should have been explained by the company prior to installation. Things that they should have informed me or maybe I should have made myself aware of (traps for the uneducated):

1. The satellite images that are used to plan the install aren't accurate. We planned for 33 panels on 2 roof spaces and ended up with 31 panels on 3 roof spaces.

2. Finding out that the battery can only be charged by a subset of the panels due to battery limits. (makes sense but I didn't find out till after installation)

3. In line with 2 above only the panels connected to the battery will be operational during a blackout. (19 of the 31)

4. Our air con user 3 phases and cannot be supplied by the battery so no air con during blackouts.

5. Our oven amp rating is higher than what the battery can supply so no oven during blackouts.

System has worked exactly as expected. On a cloudless day the panels provide for all our use as well as charging the battery by lunch time. From then on the extra flows to the grid.

So far this year (Jan to Aug) the system has provided 64% of our power needs. The percentage will increase as we head into the warmer months.

Worth doing

Was very Happy with Patricio from RK Solar. On his visit he explained all the aspects of getting solar panels installed.
He was helpful, knowledgeable, promptly returned calls, emails and made changes to the system spec and provided quotes as requested.
The whole process from paying the deposit, processing the order and locking in an install date was a smooth process provided by Hector in admin support.
The installation team turned up on the due date, were on time, friendly, courteous, clean / tidy and did a good job installing the products, they even fixed an issue with a down pipe we had so was excellent. They provided us with all the required installation certification paperwork.
I’m also great full to Allen at RK solar who helped me sorted out my app to the Fronius inverter.
I would have no issue recommending them based on my experiences with their pre / post sales teams and installation team.

Highly Recommended

I am pleased to recommend RK Solar highly. From the initial contact with their Consultant and the stages of finalising a quote, organising the installation and finally the commissioning of the panels - at all times they were highly professional, competitive, prompt and supportive.
We had a difficult site - 1 3 storied inner city terrace house that posed it's unique access issue but they assisted where others would not have tried.

Best Solar company by far.

This is the second time I have used RK Solar to install a state of the art System. The whole process from start to finish was a pleasure to deal with. From the quotes, to the installation date, even prior by giving me a lot of information and advice to make sure I got the best product for my situation. One of the things I liked wears they have been in business a long time, not just a few years. So I knew I could rely on the ongoing support and service.

The installers were all very professional and punctual with a high level of workmanship. I would not hesitate in using them again or highly recommending them to family and friends.

Looking forward to no more power bills. ; )

Excellent service throughout

I am extremely happy with the whole process. I got 3 quotes - RK Solar were the only company to actually come to the house and look at the situation. The consultant was excellent - he was prepared to work with me to give me the best system at a price I could afford. I had a budget that I was not prepared to exceed - the original quote was above that but working together we were able to get to a great solution.

The company kept in contact with me after the contract was signed updating me as to the progress of the order and then worked with me to get the system installed in the shortest possible time frame.
On the day of installation the workers arrived on time and on a very nasty hot and windy day had the system installed on the roof efficiently and quickly under trying conditions. They were extremely tidy clearing up after the work was done.

After installation they took me through the details I needed to know carefully and thoroughly and then the next day made sure I was able to log in and monitor my system.

The customer service has been excellent - I already had a small solar system on the roof so had a smart meter installed that they only had to connect to on the day so by mid afternoon my system was up and running and feeding power to the house and the grid.

Professional Installer With Electrical Background

RK Solar provided the most detailed quote of all the solar companies, with many different options for size of install, inverter and panel type. We went with 10.36kW system using Trina panels & Enphase Mirco-inverter and Envoy S-Meter wifi monitoring.

Was very Happy with Kunal the Director of RK Solar who personally visited our property and explained all the aspect of solar. He was helpful, knowledgeable, promptly returned calls, emails and made changes to the system spec and provided quotes as requested. RK Solar & Consulting Service are Enphase Professional installer.

Once I paid my deposit, they processed my order and got back within a few days to lock in a date.
The installation team turned up on the due date, were on time, friendly, courteous, clean / tidy and did a good job installing the products and provided with all the required installation certification paperwork. The installation was done in a day and was relatively smooth.
Overall, my experience with RK Solar has been very positive. I would have no issue recommending them based on my experiences with their pre / post sales teams and installation team.

Good Custom Design For Our Requirements

1. Sales and quotes were very detailed and provided all information required to select the best system for our installation.

2. The installation was completed when scheduled with a team of installers. The CB installed in the fuse box was initially not the correct rating and was tripping under high load. Once this was identified a new higher rated CB was installed and system operation has been excellent since.

3. Initial Wi-fi connection was not working but this was identified by the GK Solar Technician and corrected the following day. Grid connection and monitoring functions were all completed smoothly.

Quality installation

After lots of research we are glad we decided to get our solar system installed with RK Solar. Great company to deal with. Kunal personally took time to explain pros and cons of different systems and helped us take the right decision of going with Enphase micro inverters.

Installation team was amazing and did a very professional job. They took time and ensured high quality installation. They even ensured that no pipes or wires are visible. One of the things that swayed us in favour of RK Solar was that they have their own installation team.

The whole process was stress free and the admin kept us informed at every stage. I like quick response to my emails and absolutely loved the quick response times from Hector.

Will highly recommend this company.

So far so good

I have used RK Solar before so know their process. Their quote was informative and gave loads of info. We elected to go for a larger system than they initially quoted and they were happy to adjust their offer and it was done quickly.

So far so good as the install has been done and it was done quickly and efficiently. Not yet hooked up as the energy retailer has not yet installed the smart meter. Very happy that after the March flooding event in Penrith where i live that the roof has not leaked due to the installation. If it was going to leak i guess it would have been this week.

RK need to do some remedial work on the roof which is why the install is only 3 stars but they have committed to doing this when they come back to install the consumption meter. Once done to my satisfaction i would happily increase the rating.

Looking forward to harvesting some rays!!!

A very bad post customer service.

The entire process has nothing but a very bad experience to me.
The issues range from:
- Promising dates for install and no one coming on that day to install. We have to take off from work to be at home for install to happen, however when no one comes the day of install its quite frustrating. This happened not just once.
- Damages during install, which when reported never replied or acknowledged.
- Damage to the sky tube, which turned into a leak into my roof.

For people looking for better solar install company please look elsewhere.

Thank you,
Mihir.

A difficult job, but RK solar prevailed

My job was difficult and RK provided a good PV solution

I have significant shading on my property from Eucalypt trees on both the North West and the East. North Sydney Council will not allow them to be cut down, despite the environmental benefits of solar and the fire risk , as I am in a designated 'red' RFS high risk bush fire zone too. So not too considerate of rate payer needs!

I have a 2 / 3 story hillside house, hard to access, with clay roof tiles. Other suppliers prefer single story, easy access, colour bond steel roof without shading and either did not quote, made excuses for high prices, demanded the tree was cut down (see above answer) or tried to push their favoured Chinese products. RK solar listened, thought and provided a practical, cost effective solution for the shading with SMA (Germany) 5kwh inverter, 17xREC panels with Tigo shade optimisers, matched to my 3 phase power supply.

The installation took 2 attempts; the first team were not happy with the height, some light morning rain and a steep roof incline, but the 2nd team prevailed and were courteous, safe, tidy and efficient.
Likewise the grid connection and liaison with my electrical supplier AGL was easy.

Overall, I am very happy with RK solar, but my VFM, due to the shading costs cannot be rated as 5 stars - but this is a function of my property's issues.

I am very happy to endorse RK solar.

The guys turned up on site at the agreed time and date. Completed the job well on time. They followed the safety standards. Guys had tool box talks and planned the installation very well.
The installation was perfect and overall quality was quite good.

Great Company and the best Installer

There were 3 Solar Reps visited to my house as a reply from SolarQuotes. I chose RK because they offered a bigger system than the others, they also have the wider range of Solar equipment suppliers.
I chose Trina panel because its not that expensive but offered reasonable warranty similar to the top brands, and it is also efficient. It was partner with SMA Inverter and Clenergy Racking.

The installation was meticulously supervised by an Electrical Engineer. Everything was done in one working day including grid connection and online monitoring application.
I was lucky to have an expert installer that knows everything about solar energy system.
In the next day I yielded 62kw of clean energy from my 10 kw solar system.
RK costumer service is top notch, they answer all my questions.

I definitely recommend RK Solar Installer, which was recommended to me by SolarQuotes.

Original Review on 20-05-2020:

Communication problems , Satisfactory outcome

All Solar quotes were basically the same. Choosing one was mainly based on longevity and customer base. Problems with communication occurred during the initial and installation process. E mails were ignored and I was contacted at 5pm on a Tuesday night that the Panels would be installed at 6.30am the next day. I rejected this late notice but the installers turned up anyway. The installation was organised for a later date and was very efficiently carried out. The system is now operating well, and hopefully will be for many years to come. I appreciate that all this occurred during the Covid-19 crisis and this may have contributed to some of the problems. I think that Solar companies need to appreciate that new customers know little about how the business operates and need quick answers to any ongoing concerns. Original ratings

Excellent customer service & very happy with the system

Kunal took his time understanding my needs and concerns as I have limited roof space to installed solar panels. After going through pros and cons for a few solar panel brands & inverters, I have decided to go with Longi 370W panel + Enphase microinverters. Very happy with the system and the entire process from customer service to installation (including all paperworks and organisation of grid connection). Have since referred Kunal to two of my friends who ended up with RK Solar. Both shared the positive experience from Kunal and Team.

Original Review on 27-03-2020:

Good installation and installer

R K Solar were professional and provided options for various combinations of inverters and panels as did the other two companies.
It took a while for me to make a decision as I was constantly referring back to the Solar Quotes website for reviews and information on the various components of the system.
I was informed that the installation would begin early in April but that was subsequently brought forward to March. The installation itself went relatively smoothly.
Whirlybird needed to be relocated due to the fact that I required separation between the bottom of the lowest row of panels and the roof edge. Installation began late afternoon and was completed as the light began to fade around 6.30 pm approximately. Electrician came in much later than the installation team and his work extended to the next morning as the grid connection required daylight. Long story short a full day is required for a complete installation.
While it is not a reflection on the electrician, there is quite a lot of noisy drilling that is required on the electrical side of things and will impact on being able to be inside that particular room. In my case it was the lounge room.
Customer service has been quite good and I have been kept informed during the whole process. As I already have a smart meter, I am now waiting for remote re-configuration of the meter so that solar production can be accounted for by the retailer. R K organised for the paper work to be able to get to this point.
The system has been running for about two days which have gone between cloudy, rainy and sunny....!!
System production for 26 March was 11.12 kWh of which 41% was self consumed and 59% exported.
Consumption was 15.04 kWh of which 30% was self consumed and 70% imported. Still early days.
Note: Panels are Hanwa Q-cells 330W DUO G5. Included a SolarEdge bus to monitor individual panels and self consumption.

Yes the system has performed to expectations. The only downside if any is that my panels can generate close to 6.6kW on a sunny day but my inverter can only handle 5kW which I knew that from the start.

generating lots of power

My installation occurred during the early stages of the Corona virus, so communication was a little difficult. After some initial communication misunderstandings about what I required, the installation was successfully completed in one day. However the next day it rained and a leak occurred caused by a cracked roof tile. This was rectified the next day by the installers. I initially had some wi-fi problems with the Enphase inverters and found it tricky to reinstall the software communication by myself.(someone coming to my home to help would incur a fee). My experience since then has exceeded my expectations. The system is generating around 800 Kw per month, much more than I can use. So far, no problems.
