Solar Harness 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:
Sales person sold his experience and knowledge and promoted we go with
a quality system, which we agreed to.
Before installation we are told that we gave the wrong information because we had
a three phase system and would now need a smaller (3kW) inverter - shouldn't he have known or checked that, will all his experience!
Also told the installer was a local gent that knew the area well and had been in the industry for years, only to have a group of teenagers turn up, full of hurry & bluster.
Had to lend them a torch for the roof space for goodness sake!
The system has worked fine and saves me around 50 percent of my power bill, however the cost of over 10K was too much and the experience left me angry with myself for not getting three different quotes.

In general good experience, not pushy salesperson, installation went well and they answer couple of questions regarding operation of the system via email and phone after installation was completed and system was working. Show additional information
Rely on work of mouth from other people who have installed systems or used company before. Show additional information
JFY JSI 1500TL Inverter installed on 21 August 2014. We've had no problems with this unit. Show additional information
We put in solar 3 yrs ago was told we would save around $1000 a year was checking the inverter other day up 20kWhs, produced, so we saved around $5,000 in our bill's. We are very happy with our system. Both our neighbors have solar also put in the same time with different company one had nothing problems with his inverter and the other has not produced the kWhs as mine. Show additional information

We purchased our system a few years ago and I was more interested in quotes for battery backup systems.
Following recent news releases we have decided to wait for further news on the Tesla battery system expected to be available in 2016.

From the date of signing the contracts to the date of installation was more than 6 months. Installation agents were awesome.
After a few billing cycles in operation we noticed that our power bills were not reflecting that we had the system fitted and upon inspecting the pannels noticed that 7 out of 16 were damaged. Upon contacting Solarharness they had no record of my installation due to a change in office staff so we contacted the local repair agent who contacted Solar Harness on our behalf. A week later the repair agent inspected the pannels and informed us that they were unservicable, we have been waiting 6 weeks and have not heard a thing. We are paying $167 every fortnight for nothing more than a little patch of shade on our roof

David told us everything straight up, making sure there was no hidden costs etc,he gave us a great price and since then he has rang back every time I have left a message. The electrical contractor has been great, came when they said and even pointed out if we needed to pay any extra, which we didn't. Everyone has been polite and efficient. Show additional information

We put in the best of the best. We had very large power bills and 6 months on and we have not seen ANY change in our power bill at all! Not a dollar difference! We have sent off copies of our bills to the company for a "please explain" , 4 phone calls to the company and not a single response to our query. We also started having power issues with our power shorting out, they came to assess after we persisted with them, but continued to claim no connection. We are now not convinced.

Stay away from this company!! Our next step is to go to consumer affairs to see if we can get our money back and the system removed. This is the worst company we have dealt with, they have our money, which they wanted upfront and now they don't care.

They told me when I order it that it was a 2.5 KW inverter. When I tried to upgrade they told me that that was the peak value and it was actually a 1.8 KW inverter and hence could only get 4 more panels.

About a year later I rang them about another upgrade and they told me that they could magically fit another 2 panels. The system is useless and only knocks off $100 of the bill. Still getting bills in excess of $400.

Rarely generates more than 1500 Watts with 12 panels.

I am waiting for system to be installed. Show additional information
Promised the system before end of December with a date for install. Took time off work and waited but no one arrived.. When contacted advised they had no booking listed. Guy turned up unannounced to view building and promised install soon. Again no contact and no response from office claiming they did not have details. Numerous messages left with company but either no reply or promises of contact that never resulted.

System finally installed months after promised date and 5K system is yet to produce more than 4K even though roof is clear and North facing.

It was very confusing making a final decision where to install the panels we were told by one company that east was best then we were told west was best both said they were right!! (we couldn't go north which is the best) Show additional information
I had the system installed about 3 weeks ago. I am still waiting for Synergy to supply us with our new meter but seeing the old one go backwards is a real treat.
I got a 1.52kW system as it was all I could fit on the roof space I had.
I am quite happy with it.
I wish I had got it a lot earlier as the rain has now come.
Having it installed also encouraged me get some quotes on upgrading my electrical distribution board.

All sales people fom the six companies who came to give me quotes were very good at their jobs. I chose Solar harness because the panels I went for are German made and not from China. Also there is a 10 year warranty, all the rest were 5 years. Show additional information

I would have gone with renewable logic or the other listed supplier aaron browne electrical because they were both very knowledgable with the solar systems of theirs and also other suppliers without being biased. The reason I did not go with them was because solar harness has their 10yr parts and labour warranty (not offered by any other company that we had quotes from). Solar harness is a little more expensive but the service is there with there suppliers also Australian based. Show additional information
