SEM Solar Solar Reviews

Very happy

Helpful advice and a seamless process to get the system installed. Show additional information

Great customer service

Llyod was very helpful to choose the right system for me, answered all the questions. Neat and tidy installation on time .
After 6 months of installation the fronius fan started making noise in the hottest summer days, informed him, within a week or so it's replaced!!!.
The quote was pricy when compared to others, but very happy with the service.

Great experience from design to final commissioning of the system

I had a 5kw system installed by Lloyd. It was such a pleasure to deal with someone who was upfront & honest about a the system that would suit us. Lloyd was always a available to answer any questions. The biggest factor in choosing semsolar was that it was Lloyd installing my system & not a sales rep selling me a system & then a 3rd party coming to install it. The system was immaculately installed and the whole work area was cleaned up when they where done. I can thoroughly recommend Lloyd & his team, it was nice to deal with someone who was so thorough and clear from design to final commissioning of the system. Show additional information

The guys as SEM solar exceeded all expectations and showed a professionalism and quality of service not seen very often these days. Lloyd was beyond helpful and answered all questions in a way I could understand without sleazy sales tactics or using too much technical jargon. Highly recommend SEM solar Show additional information
I had planned to go with a large company but I am really glad I went with the small but exceptionally professional SEM Solar team. I got the most experienced electrician and installer. I also needed an electrical upgrade, (verified by other providers as well). Everything was carefully upgraded and tested first. They are very thorough! Yet it did not cost me huge amounts of money. I got great service and a very reasonable price. Show additional information
Lloyd was at all times helpful, knowledgable and there to serve Show additional information
SEM solar went above and beyond with talking to me about solar which is what I wanted to hear, other companies that I've met with only explained to me what they were offering and how much it was. Lloyd is also a guy you can count on when you have issues with your system. Fantastic service and very easy to talk to, really happy from start to finish. I would recommend this company.

As with the other reviewers I was impressed with Lloyds attitude and the way he guided me through the whole process. I am very satisfied with the system, installation and service provided by SEM solar. The first bill recieved was a considerable reduction on the pre-solar charges! Show additional information
Lloyd & the crew at SEM Solar were fabulous - from start to finish (& beyond!), a great job all round! Show additional information
I chose SEM Solar after talking with Lloyd he knew what he was talking about and knew that I knew what I wanted and sales bs. Lloyd was very candid and professional, arrived on time for the inspection / quotation and had a wealth of excellent information about solar and how the install would go.

Lloyd did all the Electrical work, which was neat and precise. The invertor was mounted were I preferred and good heavy duty cabling was used to both the panels and meter box. All the paperwork and product registration was done by Lloyd and emailed through along with additional information on how the system works etc.

I had several followup emails to Lloyd asking various questions about getting access to the invertor through the API etc and Lloyd's post install/sale responses were timely and helpful.

The system has performed superbly since going in and is averaging 43 units a day. Looking at the month of January there were only 5 days where the system did not produce 41+ due to weather conditions.

My only complaint would be the mounting of the brackets on the roof weren't all exactly vertical this was done by the 3rd guy in the team who went home crook after doing an average job on the mounting brackets. Lloyd and his young apprentice completed the install together and Lloyd rechecked all the brackets.

SEM Solar wasnt the cheapest but I am confident they did the best job and Lloyds attention to detail is second to none. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Kudos to Lloyd and the young fellow.

I did a lot of research on Solar Systems, online as well as speaking to people who have a Solar System. I decided I wanted a good quality system rather than just the cheapest system available. I received three quotes after registering my interest with Solar Quotes. All three were excellent, no pushy sales-people and I spoke with the installers directly. I decided to go with a 5.5 KW systems rather than 6.5KW after it was explained to me that my roof space would not take the number of Panels required for a full 6.5KW system without compromising the installation. This was very different from the quotes I received from larger Companies after registering my interest on another Website. I received a number of calls from Eastern States sales-people pushing larger Systems with more Panels. I was assured they had local installers who would do the work. I decided I would rather go with a local Business and so chose SEM Solar. Lloyd at SEM Solar was great, answered all my questions and has since answered a few more even after the installation. I am able to talk to him directly whenever I have a question and it is reassuring to know that he knows my Home and my Solar System because he did the installation himself.

I am very happy with my Solar System and highly recommend SEM Solar to anyone who is looking at getting an installation.

Fast clean install job well done. Show additional information
I chose SEM Solar because they could supply the system I wanted and not what the other companies wanted to sell me. Lloyd the company owner was very knowledgeable and seemed to have a true passion for solar systems in general. Lloyd gave me good advice and paid a visit to my property to assess my roof and ensure the system could be installed in the configuration I wanted. The installation was completed in the morning and slightly ahead of schedule, the system was powered up and producing 5Kw immediately. Electrical work was neat and tidy with good labelling, no mess or excess materials was left. I received good verbal instructions from Lloyd on how to reset the system should a failure occur as well as a nice brochure with literature on the Fronius inverter and LG panels which were installed. Fronius product registration was done by Lloyd and instructions sent by several emails on how to access the online Fronius Dashboard to view the system performance.

I'm very happy with the solar system and have had absolutely no issues since it was installed on 14th December 2018.
The system has been operational for 31 days now with an average production of approx 41Kw / Day (14/12/2018 to 13/01/2019), This exceeds my expectations but the weather has been pretty good here in the South of Perth area.

Lloyd is the salesperson and the installer so you pay for what you see which I liked. He was fantastic at explaining everything. Installation, communication and the whole process was fantastic. Honestly not the cheapest quote but the best company to install and you get what you pay for. I often choose tradespeople based on the person coming to my home and it’s never failed so far. I also felt comfortable with him and his colleagues in my home with my kids home. Winning. Show additional information

Lloyd was great at keeping us in the loop & up to date with every part of the process - from contact with Western Power, right through to the installation & then how best to monitor our system. He kept everything in simple terms so that we understood what he was talking about, no jargon.

Installation day was great - on time, very efficient, quality component accessories (ie piping & wiring) that were marked and clearly labelled, for any future reference or requirement. Excellent tidy up process.

We know we didn't select the cheapest quote of the bunch ... but we are confident we chose the best!

Did a great job on my brothers place and now has done a great job on mine. Very professional service, helped us out all along the way, and very easy to deal with. Job was done with 2 weeks once we decided who we wanted to go with. Completed in a very professional manner, system looks great on the roof and Lloyd was very pleasant to deal with.

Lloyd could not have been more approachable and helpful during and post the install. Highly recommended solar system provider. Show additional information
Very professional, efficient company.
We love the ongoing monitoring that occurs even after our system has been installed. We don't feel like we have been dropped now we have paid the account !

From the first day we met with Lloyd I found him to be very honest and knowledgeable. He explained everything in a manner I could understand. The date of installation he was on time and when the job was finished everything was cleaned up, all packaging taken away. Our system works very well and our power bill has dropped by over 50%.
We could not recommend Lloyd and his team highly enough for the professionalism and respect shown to us. For those out there looking for an excellent Solar system tailored to your needs - go SemSolar.

Lloyd installed our System some time ago now and it is still working great to this day and there has been no faults or breakdowns to the equipment that he installed, installation quality was to perfection and the system was tailored to our house and he even managed to track down black anodised frame work for our solar panels to match our roof tiles to not disrupt the atheistic of our house, we would definitely recommend him and his company to others Show additional information

Installation and Customer service was "Fantastic" -very friendly neat and complete.

I tried getting quotes elsewhere with little success as my solar upgrade required a unique installation. SEM know solar from first principles and were able to supply a high quality, flexible and compliant solution, without over charging or putting it in the "too hard basket". If you need design work done or someone who can think outside the box, I can't recommend SEM enough. Show additional information
The installation was exactly on time, it is doing what we were promised. When Lloyd left, the was not a scrap of rubbish, all the dust was swept up, and they were a delight to deal with Show additional information
Used this site to get 3 quotes SEM was one of these plus i got 2 from other companys. Found sem solar to be the most knowledgeable and easiest to get along with plus they had very competitive pricing. Attention to detail at installation was great highly recommend using these guys.

Lloyd from SEM solar provided excellent services with regular updates so we knew what was happening and when each component would be installed. His attention to detail is second to none and the ability to clearly articulate what the system could and could not do was excellent, I highly recommend Lloyd and his team to anyone looking to install a solar power system.

When I contacted Lloyd he was very helpful on the phone and also said that he would come to our house at a time to suit us to explain the system and any other questions we may have. He came at the time I requested, answered my questions and with no pressure to sign up there and then .I was very pleased to go with Lloyd (SEMSOLAR) who also did the installation and explained the system in easy to under stand language.

We took a number of quotes for this installation. The majority were interested in getting a Sale, by offering a cheaper system. However I was interested in a good quality system, with high efficiency, and product reliability. Lloyd was offering exactly this. He explained the benefits of the Fronius inverter in terms of reliability, efficiency and guarantees, even though the cost was higher. Lloyd was not selling, rather he was happy to take the time to explain exactly how the system works, and offer a good quality product. He also did not make claims that could turn out to be false, rather he erred on the side of caution, so we didn't get unrealistic expectations. We were kept up to date on all aspects of the planning process. On installation day, Lloyd arrived on time, was very efficient during the installation, and when they left, there was not a speck of dust or rubbish left behind.
Even though the system is fairly new, we have been astounded by how large the cost saving on our Synergy bill will be. We feel we have made a good investment.
The reason I chose to go with Lloyd of SEMSOLAR, was he was not trying to get a sale, but is a professional offering a very good service, and a quality product.

Llyod is a very experienced and nice person to deal with and he's very knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend his SEM solar for others... Show additional information
Lloyd provided a great service from the very beginning.
He understood that I had done my research and unlike other companies, was willing to engage in an informed discussion about the best way to proceed.
Many of the other sales people did not even understand their own product
or were not willing to discuss anything outside the range they usually provided.
It was great that the man who did the pre-sales also did the installation
and has kept in touch to see how it's all going.
Cannot recommend Lloyd and his company highly enough.
