RK Solar And Consulting 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:
I have already supplied these details to R K Solar I don't think this should be duplicated?
However I am very pleased that Finn Peacock provided the service for obtaining the quotes. It made it easier for me, as well as the very useful information about Solar choices. This made gave me some knowledge to work with in making decisions about a product that I originally knew little about.

We chose RK Solar because other companies were too slow responding. Show additional information
Not sure how things will turn out supplier should have installed today but cancelled because they didnt have solar panels. Offered other product but we declined not what we paid for also a bit weary about supplier wanting full payment after install of panels, then I have to wait 7 to10 days before meter install. Also dissapointed as didnt know until after handing over dep that surplier not local. Show additional information
Karan was always willing to answer any questions that I had. RK Solar installed a 3KW microinverter, battery ready system onto my roof, which was a very difficult installation. The roof pitch was around 40 degrees and the height from ground level was over 7m. This resulted in two days of work to install the panels without extra cost to myself. Very happy with the results and I would recommend RK Solar as the company to choose for installation of your solar network. Show additional information

Sales person came to house to discuss options. Presented systems catered to my needs and requests. Was open to answer all questions I had. There was good communication throughout the whole process. Was able to present the best valued quote of all supplier/installers I found. Panels on my house within 6 weeks. Will definitely consider when I upgrade to battery storage.

I had my system installed in March and my wife was told it was all good to go. Got my first bill and there was no change. I rang and they did not install the new meters as they forgot. I finally had the guy come out yesterday to install the right meters and he left quite a mess behind.

Hopefully now I will be getting the service I paid for back in March.

Also the owner is ignoring my emails about being compensated for paying for a service I did not receive for over two months.

I highly recommend not using this company if you live outside of Sydney.

This was not the cheapest quote received but we felt most comfortable with the sales and admin staff who answered every question and made us feel most at ease that they were quoting for what we wanted and that there wouldn't be any additional "unexpected" costs other than the quote itself. They were also open for negotiation, saving me real $$ which allowed me to get solar installed at my investment property also. Show additional information

Informative and helpful, on time and professional. Show additional information
The team broke 12 roof tiles but had the good sense to delay the installation until I obtained additional roof tiles. The sequence of quotation, supply and fit and communication was excellent. The broken roof tiles delayed the final installation but this was not a problem. Show additional information
The service provided by RK Solar was great from initial contact to after sales service.
Karan the salesperson, was extremely knowledgeable and patient in advising me on the best solar system for my needs when he visited my property.
The administration team were always quick to address any concerns I had. They kept in constant contact with me both during the installation process and after the installation was completed to ensure that I was up to date with what was happening and happy with the system I had received.
The installers, John and Harry, were extremely professional in walking me through the installation process on the day and more than happy to answer my many questions from the positioning of my panels to how the system works.

Really professional sales person. Guided us in choosing the right system. He explained the process very well and came out competitive as compared to other companies.
Installation was also very smooth. System was installed & up and running in no time. I would highly recommend RK Solar.

RK solar came out to my home with pamphlets about some features of their solar system- a lot of others only sell on the phone. They gave me 3 choices with regards to quality and price. Initially i thought i would get a 3k system for $5000. After doing a lot of looking at reviews and talking to other solar companies and home owners, I went with a smaller but better quality system that i can attach to a battery in future. Covering my needs only required a small system, with the main problem being nighttime consumption.
Absolutely no problem with the install, they did all the work. I was a little flustered with the terms on the invoice as it says to pay on the day of the install, but they said they were coming back to do the smart meter. I paid anyway, couple of days after the first install and wasn't penalised. The smart meter was installed quite later, and i didn't quite understand beforehand what it was, but now i can monitor my panels and energy production from the web. Cool!. It wasn't something i expected.
Looking forward to my next electricity bill.
Thanks RK solar.

It was good to see the Director, KUNAL, and the salesman , KARAN, onsite to supervise the installation. Fantastic job done by John, Solar technician, and his crew with Harry the electrician. I highly recommend this installer. 10/10 Show additional information
Well managed team when quite a concern that the customers are happy Show additional information
Not pushy, experienced, explained all the types and options Show additional information
Karan Kapoor at RK Solar is very knowledgable and had very carefully and patiently explained various solar system configurations and their advantages and disadvantages. He made it very easy to select the type of system that would suit us and was happy to produce a quote using the brand of panels that we had researched and wanted.
Before and after approving their quote, the communication and help from RK was exceptional. I would like to emphasise that there was never at anytime any pressure, only offers of help to answer any questions we might have had that assured us we were going to be satisfied with our choice of system. The installation was also quick and trouble free.
Having selected the very latest Enphase micro inverters, the geek in me enjoys monitoring the effectiveness of our system in real time via logging into the Enphase "MyEnlighten" site on any of my internet enabled devices. Overall we are very satisfied with our system and the service provided by RK Solar & Consulting. We would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone.

Very Quick to respond to request for a quote (the quickest) and very good communications. I required a replacement inverter only and speed was important to me. Only heavy rains delayed the promised lead time a few days. I have marked the quality down to 4 as I elected not to proceed with the most expensive and longest warranty option but this was my choice and not any complaint of RK Solar - they gave me options. Overall a very good experience and good to do business with. Show additional information
There wasn't a thing i could fault with them. Everything went smooth. Very nice and friendly. Show additional information

I was impressed by their prompt service and their way of conducting business. No hidden agenda and no added cost. Quality of the products used were genuine and the they even made sure after installation as to the performance of the system. Delivery was on as promised. I highly recommend RK Solar for their genuine consulting, honesty and sincerity in their business. Show additional information
Great staff , Great Service Show additional information
RK Solar is a local company. They were quick to respond to our request for an appraisal and quote. We had good technical advice. Follow up was helpful without being aggressive. The overall price was competitive but we did opt for a technically advanced option and in doing so I believe we negotiated a value for money product. Installation was delivered on time and the installers were capable and efficient. RK Solar also have their own level 2 installer so we did not have to wait for the local power authority to install the new meters as this was delivered at time of installation. Our system was commissioned before the installation team left our premises. Our total experience from sales and technical advice, consultancy, installation, commissioning and follow up has been totally professional and efficient. It has been a pleasure dealing with RK Solar.

Karan the salesperson was very knowledgeable and knows what I want. Even the installers are very qualified and professional. They don't rush to get the job done, they make sure that everything works fine and explain the system. Show additional information
Finn Peacock gave me introductions to RK Solar and three others. RK Solar were the only ones who were prepared to discuss and vary their quotation to suit my preferences. I took the opportunity to replace my old meter box and install the latest Envoy "S" controller for the micro-inverters for the 16 Canadian Solar PV panels. RK Solar handled all my wants and their salesman was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Of the three quotes received, RK Solar was #2 in price.
Their installation staff were competent and diligent, and I had no issues with any of their work. Final connection to the grid was accomplished a week after installation of the panels, and the system worked as expected immediately on switch-on.
I will be coming back to RK Solar in the future when battery storage becomes more economical.

The sales person made a lot of sense and seemed to know what he was talking about. The installers came on the day they said they would, finished quite promptly and set up the system for me OK. I didn't have to prepay the whole lot- just the deposit - the rest was due on completion. Show additional information

Because the person that removed my old meter didn't know how to read old meters and got it wrong, I have had nearly 12 months of problems trying to fix it. Show additional information

Peter was the sales person I dealt with ! He was one of the very few reps that actually came out and looked at the possible areas and even climbed up onto the roof( of which I have 3 different levels) to sight where I could have the panels placed and emailed me quite a few photos of where shadows were likely to affect the panels at different times of the year, when placed in the different positions .Extremely polite , patient and helpful and answered all my queries promptly .Not once was I hassled about making any decisions because it took me about 2 months before I was completely happy with my decision to go ahead with the company ! I did a lot of my own research and a lot of that help came from Solar quotes website (another unbiased and info which was well written in simple explanations for the non tech person ) .
Once I had decided on the system ( he advised 2kW but I chose 3kW as in the future I want to be able to store excess energy in batteries later on )
Installer ,John was fantastic and gave me a complete picture ( using his solar machine ) of the amount of energy I could possibly expect the panels to produce year round before installation started. If I was given that info right from the beginning I would not have taken so long to make up my mind ! Installation went smoothly and quickly once we both agreed on the final,placement !
I bought Q cells with micro inverters. I've had to have 6 on stilts to catch north sun and 6,on roof facing east to maximise the time I use my most energy zapping apparatus . Im extremely happy with their performance ! Was installed end of November ,2015 and my first elect bill with 1 month of solar panels in operation showed a saving of a 33/o. The computer program showing data is easy to operate and shows energy generated every 15 mins plus a lot of other info . Would like to see how much of that energy produced is consumed during solar production !
The meter box is very tiny and compact compared to my neighbours!
