Smart Energy Answers Solar Reviews

There is a performance anomaly that we are currently arguing about, and I keep getting seem rolled.
I have SolarEdge optimisers and 5kW inverter and 17 x 315W sunpower panels in 3 groups thus;
9 panels on a flat roof, no shadowing
4 panels facing E at 10°, wall to W produces complete shadow from 0% @ 14:00 to 100% @ 16:00
4 panels facing E at 33°, same wall to W produces complete shadow from 0% @ 11:45 to 100% @ 13:45

On12/3/19, under zero cloud the system gets to full power 3.5kW @11:15, then drops to 2.3kW @ 11:45 before there is ANY overshadowing and the 33° panels are slightly better than 45° from perpendicular to the sun's rays.
After that, there is a much more gradual drop in power as the 2 adjacent E facing 4-panel groups go into shadow one after the other.
To me, as an engineer, the 1.2kW drop over 30 minutes should not occur. And the responses from the previously garrulous Norman Kozlowski have become rather terse. It seems the "optimisers" are stealing about 2kWh a day, and I'm getting no answers.

Definitely Recommended

These guys were the ones who showed the most interest in our business and actually sent a rep out to go over exactly what we required and give us a run down of the diffreent options available. We definitely could've got it cheaper, but we were after dependability and quality and they seemed to have these in spades.

Good price

The sales process was quick an efficient. I got a great price with a Fronius inverter which I thought was wonderful. An even greater surprise was how quickly the job was scheduled. I was kept up to date every step of the way. Installation appeared to go well on the day and the application for my net meter was submitted very soon after. Unfortunately the inverter began turning itself off and when I called the office they couldn’t give me a date for someone to come out. They also recognised that the online monitoring was not working and needed fixing. I didn’t consider that service to be great and emailed admin contacts in the company for help when nothing had happened more than 7 days later. Not sure if they intervened but I got a call from an electrician the next day. He turned up that day and got the online monitoring working. He’s adjusted the voltage and changed the capacitor (I think that’s what he said). Fingers crossed that there’ll be no more problems.

Nice and Easy!

Our system has been in for just under two weeks and so far is performing just as expected , and as quoted by Smart Energy Answers (SEA).
The installation went smoothly and was finished in about half a day. Installation staff were efficient , polite and cleaned up after themselves. A quick demo was provided to show the system was working when turned on.

There was a problem the following day , as disconnecting the power , upset our off-peak load and we had no hot water. This happened to be a weekend. Our installing electrician was away in Albury, so SEA managed to find another of their electricians to come and fix the problem ASAP. ( They even offered, if they could not find one of their own for us to find a local one and they would pay for it, but this was not necessary.) We were impressed, that given a problem, hard to find at system restart as off-peak is, by definition, not working during the day they fixed it quickly.
SolarEdge online monitoring system is great and tells you exactly how much solar power you have generated every day/week/month/year.
I would highly recommend the entire team at SEA.

Very efficient install

Sales person was great, came to my house and explained everything in detail followed up with a customised quote and promised installation within three weeks.
Install happened 18 days after accepting quote and connection to the grid was done on same day as install. Everything went smoothly and everyone was very clean, tidy and polite.
The panels were installed out of sight as I had requested so cannot be seen from the street.

Intelligent monitoring

I was sold by the monitoring advice provided: the sales guy framed it sensibly and simply—that the goal to minimise grid power use and maximise my own energy use requires intelligent monitoring (Emberpulse) of my own power available so that I can make a decision whether to use a vacuum or washing machine or air conditioner now or later. (Installation happening next week.)

Couldn't fault the installation process. Loved how neat and tidy the whole things looks

Quoting process was pretty easy, however was a bit disappointed with the lack of communication between deciding to go with Smart Energy, putting down the deposit and then having to wait 3 weeks before hearing back from anyone about the install date. I didn't have any issue with waiting for an install, just would have been nice to have better communication about this. However that being said, I am absolutely stoked with the install. My only concern was not wanting to see the panels from the street and the installers made sure that this was the case. Cabling was done to a high standard and I cannot be happier with the result

Extremely Happy with everything concern.

Smart Energy Answers were very helpful with the quote and explaining all involved, they offered a special for the month which also assisted the price. I was well informed of the process before the installation date. All workers for the installer were pleasant and polite. Smart Energy Answers, follow up with the electricity provider was very satisfactory. I was instructed to contact my provider as well for which I did. Their after service was also satisfactory.
The only issue I have with all Solar providores would be to inform the purchaser of the possibility of roof tiles being damaged at the time of installation, and perhaps help them with information to purchases some spare ones before the installation date. I have since been able to purchase spare tiles for future need of replacement.

Good communication before and after installation.

Installation crew were very capable. Despite working on roof for several hours, a lot of panels, no tiles were damaged, in fact they replaced a tile already damaged.
Customer service totally organised grid connection with necessary documentation and cc’d. me.
Smart meter installed yesterday, coincidentally the start of a new billing period, so I’ll be able to assess performance.
All in all a job well done. Thanks

Even my Neighbor was Impressed!

It was hard to fault my experience with this company. I knew exactly what I was to expect, and they delivered it all. I was well informed throughout the entire process and even afterwards. No surprises, great communication, and professional installation. I was not able to be there during the installation, but my family members all commented positively, and so did my Neighbor, who thought they were very efficient.

I was very pleased with the work, the installation, and the state of my property afterwards.

I couldn't have asked for more, and I think I chose wisely. They exceeded my expectations at every turn. Well done, good job!

System Not Installed Properly (Resolved by the company)

18/9/19 contacted by the company trying to resolve my experience below. Happy with the way Daniel approached me and the outcome.

13/9/19 I will not recommend this retailer if you are not in NSW. I live in VIC, beside the actual installation was delayed by 3 weeks, and their electrician did not initialize the inverter according to Australian standard which caused the system failure in the first 2 months after installed, that was half of summer season at the end of 2018. I spent loads of time contact different parties (retailer, manufacturer, grid provider, Solar VIC and Consumer Affair etc), and end up fixing it myself. The company finally give me access to the system and ask me to fix it myself. All these supposed to be done by them and their licensed electrician!!!!

So the technical part of issue and my contact summary are below:
- my area is experiencing high voltage upto 250v (standard 240v), the grid provider has now fixed it.
- if the inverter was installed according to Australian Standard, it should tolerate voltage range upto 255v which should not be an issue
- The inverter was installed as default setting (the electrician did not select AUS option in configuration), which cause the system constantly stopped working when the grid reached 250v.

- I contacted the company, they blame the grid provider...
- I contacted the grid provider, it will take them a while to fix it (I agree they also have responsibility to keep this in the range)
- I contacted SMA, the German inverter manufacturer, and been advised the system was not configured according to AUS standard
- I contacted Solar Quotes, been advised high voltage is very common issue, the solar company should test the area before signing the contract and let me know the issue for decision making, which obviously they did not.
- I contacted Consumer Affair, been asked to contact the retailer again...
- I then went back to the solar company, but been told the electrician is too busy to come back...so they got me access to the system and ask me to fix it myself...good job!

After all this mess, the system finally back online however, I missed the first summer after installation...Impressive

Great people, but better communications needed

Late 2018 the salesman and I had a good discussion and we settled on a 4 kW system of 17 REC panels with a Fronius inverter. Day came for installation and the installers had the wrong roof top diagrams. I had explicitly informed the salesman that no panels could be installed on the slate part of the roof, only on the corrugated steel part. Thus the installers had to improvise. They did a great job installing and working in small attic spaces to install the cables. However, the system had to be delayed because it took a while for my provider to get a smart meter (but can't blame SEA). I put that down to it being Christmas/January. Once the smart meter was working I monitored it with the Fronius app. I knew that the system would be compromised by our shade issue. But I was not aware then that optimisers could be used with shading issues, and I am unsure if the salesman had suggested them. It would have been better if he had suggested it in the interview and made this part of the original plan. I also decided to put three more panels on another part of the roof. In March I called the company and they promptly advised me that they could provide optimisers and they would install three more panels and optimisers for the cost price of the the three new panels. Their best consultant/electrician came out to check and he was great. He told me I could get a bit more out of the system, the optimisers would help, but that the shading was always going to be a disadvantage. OK, the follow-up installation of the extra panels and optimisers (and an extra string to the inverter) went well. Since the optimisers were put on the system is operating at much higher efficiency.

Sales and quoting was the reason we went with Smart energy. The guys where punctual and seemed to do a good job. As for tidy well, there was rubbish left on the roof, a couple of chipped tiles even cigarette butts. We contacted them to tell them about this, as well also 1 panel wasn't on the system and this took 3 weeks to fix. On the rubbish, the fellow that eventually came to fix the system didn't seem to bothered about it, say" shrugged it of as part of the job". In my line of work that would be unacceptable , so I would expect a tradie would be the same. Overall I can see the benefit of solar as great way to save money and be better for the whole planet. I am still glad we went ahead with it.

Beautiful Installation Could not be happier with my choice

It was a hard decision which Solar company to use but after much deliberation we decided on SMART ENERGY ANSWERS as I loved the Emberpulse monitoring system that they offered. I couldn't believe once I committed to buy how quick the whole process was. After contacted my sales person Adam to tell him my deposit was paid he arranged for my Emberpulse monitor to be delivered the next day and when I paid the the remaining balance my solar was installed less than a week later 2nd August 2019 . The Electrician and panel installers were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for them they were so tidy and so polite besides being very good and so knowledgeable at what they were doing. Smart Energy Answers arranged for my meter to be changed over with AGL but I was advised to also contact my energy provider AGL myself just to ensure it was done. AGL came out in a few days and swapped the meter over. I am looking forward to my first bill so I can judge how it all works Can Highly recommend Smart energy Answers it was the perfect choice !!

Pretty great experience

The design of our system was really pretty exceptional, and targeted to make the most of a big of a unique roof and shading profile. Install was done professionally and the system is performing really well.

Fantastic all-round product, provider and service

Overall, we were nothing but impressed by the service and quality delivered by Solar Energy Answers. They responded quickly, gave us a considered solution, were able to install faster than we planned, and did an incredibly tidy job both in terms of the install (looks the goods, no cabling or units getting in the way) and cleaning up after themselves. Further we were impressed that they reconsidered their recommendation of inverter and advised us to go with another one, and met us half way on the cost of the upgrade since it wasn't what they'd originally quoted us on originally. The support service during the purchase process, and afterwards has been great too. If every installation service worked like SEA do, customers would never have to worry. Highly recommended.

Professional installer

Quoting was clear, installation was on time, clearly professionally done, everything left tidy.

Followup was good when I couldn't access the Powerplay app.

The reason for rating “average” for some of my responses was that there was a lack of coordination between the supplier, installer, electrical retailer and the distributor - which has resulted in the system still not operating optimally 2.5 weeks after installation.

Two specific areas were that the electricity retailer (Energy Australia) has still not installed the smartmeter, and that the electricity distributor (Essential Energy) intermittently oversupplies voltage to site - which means that the inverter shuts off the solar generated power to the house, and sources power solely from the Grid.

The efficiency of the installer (Tilstons Electrical) was good, and their timing was prompt.

My contact with SMART Energy has been professional and technically knowledgeable, and helped to explain the difficulties that we have been experiencing.

The really pleasant surprise has been the Emberpulse energy management system. This is great! Even with the current commissioning issues - the system allows me to manage our use of power. This is a system that I can see myself becoming part of my everyday management of our energy usage.

Overall, I put these down the the “teething issues” that can be experienced when doing something for the first time in a rural area. Currently, when the solar system is working, it is brilliant. When it stops due to oversupply from the Grid it is frustrating.
