Solar Tactics Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

Amazing Installer.

Extremely happy with the professional level of service I received from Solar Tactics. From the quality of the installation. To the knowledge Solar Tactics demonstrated about the products they were installing and the process involved. Everything proceeded smoothly, answered and explained any questions I had, with great detail. They worked with me to get past any obstacles that popped up. In the end the whole journey from Start to finish was made very simple and stress free. I would recommend anyone getting a solar system installed to use Solar Tactics.
I would 100% use them again.

The best there is!

I only wish all companies were as good as this, I cannot speak highly enough of the whole team at Solar Tactics.

From the initial phone calls they were very informative and never pushy, providing the right advice. The quote was the best from several installers, and using quality equipment.

They helped me with any questions I had regarding the rebate process, and made sure that I was able to get the rebate done quickly - avoiding any delays.

The installers were the best tradies I've had on site (and being a new house I've had quite a few) - they were prompt, friendly, very knowledgeable and clean. The work has been carried out to an outstanding standard.

After installation they've also helped out by organising the grid connection with my electricity retailer and sending them the required documentation so I can start feeding into the grid quicker.

If you don't go with Solar Tactics you've only got yourself to blame!

Went out of their way to fulfill everything that was discussed during the quoting process Show additional information

Could not be happier

Had a great experience with Solar Tactics. Went with them because they had more 5 star reviews then 4 so that was telling. I specifically asked for QCELLS to be installed as the price point to performance is none better in my opinion. Alan who guided the process up to installation was a pleasure to deal with and was happy to answer any questions and guide me through the Vic rebate. As for the installation the guys who came out were 10/10 for professionalism from installation to going through the system with me and helping me use the fronious app and web site.

Specs, 6.3k system to be precise with fronious inverter and smart meter.

As for system performance. I am peaking at 40KWH / day during December in Melbourne. Very happy so far.

Fantastic Price, Fantastic Customer service & Top Grade installers

Solar Tactics has to be one of the best companies I have ever dealt with starting with Alan in the office he could not have been more helpful when it came to guiding us on our solar system. No issue or question was ever to hard to answer or help with including the solar rebate. Top Marks in my book Alan.

On day of installation you will meet Dennison again you are met with great customer service, workmanship which is at a very high standard both from himself and his worker. He spends time with you to gain an understanding of the entire process and spends time with you at the end of installation so you understand how to use the app for your system again Top Marks in my book Dennison.

If these two guys are anything to go on our remaining dealings with solar tactics is going to be flawless. Great job team well done.

Call Solar Tactics for all your solar needs

Solar installers best around

The quote was the best around, the installation of the equipment was totally professional and as a Engineering tradesmen of 40 plus years I know when is quality workmanship, this was above and beyond.
The team of two tradesman were polite, tidy, punctual, they drove 2 hrs from Melbourne and wer 1/2 early???????????????

Customer service from all the team was 150% consistently in contact to ensure customer was satisfied and comfortable with the progress.
The team assisted with the grid connection, inspection and Tarif monitoring.

Thanks to Solar Tactics our home has now had a $30k equity boost and our electricity bill is so stupidly low?

Great job well done with the team on the install working solidly for 8 hrs with no fuss and I didn’t see them have a break for lunch
Again Highly recommendation that anyone considering solar, I’ll save you the time.

Call Allan and Dennison ASAP
Regards Gleno

Highly recommend

Solar Tactics showed a very solid work ethic on every level and were always friendly, patient and willing to go the extra yards to make sure we were happy with everything. They had good manners and never pressured us to make a decision. Their quotes were extremely well presented but more importantly offered great value for money and were consistent with what we asked for. Even another reputable company's sales rep was surprised at how cheap
they were going to do a 3.78kw system with Longi panels and a Fronius Primo inverter.

Solar Tactics assisted us passed all the bumps in the road including some hiccups applying for the Victorian government Solar Rebate and having the meter reconfigured by a rather inflexible and sometimes hopeless electrical retailer. (Will give them the boot soon) After the approval for the rebate, Solar Tactics were able to organise an installation time very quickly. They arrived right on the dot and Dennison and his helper built a flawless PV system (the inspector confirmed as much) with not even a damaged tile. Dennison also explained everything we needed to know about the system, the inverter and making warranty claims. I have encountered dirty tactics from some sales reps from other solar companies including excessive phone calls, overstating the credentials of average or below average products, putting on a "best buddies" act and other sneaky ploys or mispresentations to lead the customer away from quality so their company can maximise their profits. Thankfully I didn't fall prey to this. I did more research, had more than 10 quotes done and finally discovered Solar Tactics, a company with real integrity who would NEVER stoop to using the tactics described above.

Fantastic installer

I am very happy with the whole process from Solartactics. Right from quoting, guiding me through applying for the solar rebate, installation and grid connection.

The installation works perfect. Could not be happier and would strongly recommend Solartactics to anyone.

Fantastic Installation

Easy to deal with. Give great advice and when it came to the installation date the guys did a neat job. Show additional information

Great price, great service, quality installer

Solar Tactics are the model of a friendly, professional, polite, tidy, and punctual installer. They give tradies a real good name.
They gave their best price straight up. There was no huge sales push, just a friendly conversation around my needs and how they could be met. They gave me several options to choose from.

I chose Solar Tactics based on quality of components (Fronius, Longi, Solar Analytics), price, their professional yet very personal approach, their responsiveness, and the super high review score on Solarquotes.
I was not disappointed.
They were very easy to deal with. Installation was no fuss, they left no mess at all and completed the 6.6kW system install in a day from start to finish.
After install they patiently showed me everything there was to know about the system.

They even helped me get the Solar Vic rebate just after 9am on 1 Aug, no mean feat.

When the installer is the owner of the company, you know the quality is going to be perfect.

Highly recommended.

Excellent work!

Solar Tactics did a great job with my solar install. Very straight forward and smooth process. They offered great advice and I couldn't be happier with the system. A very professional approach! Show additional information

Awesome solar company. Great System

Though the price, for the 8.2kW FRONIUS SYSTEM plus 28 LONGHI SOLAR PANELS I ordered, was a great reason to go with SOLAR TACTICS, my main reason to choose them was a lot more than that.
I found SOLAR TACTICS not only LISTENED TO but GAVE ME exactly what I was looking for. Not only was Brian, their salesman, GREAT in all he did in explaining what they had to offer to suit my needs, my options & why, but also Denni, the owner & Installer of the company IS EXCELLENT. He came & looked at my roof space to ensure that his suggested system would work & fit in where it was needed. He took the time it needed to ensure I was happy with it all & when fitted, calls to him re any concerns (mostly in me getting to know the running of the system), was NEVER a problem. They were punctual, even on the first day when they were hampered by rain, they did all they could to ensure the day was not wasted. I found them to be extremely careful in all they did, leaving everything WELL SECURED, NO breakages & NOTHING left to clean up after them. His lovely wife, Pere, was so good in not only ensuring all the paper work was in order, but also that I was completely happy with everything as well.
BUT that was NOT ALL.
In a world that seems to think that they can win people over with HUGE DISCOUNTS OFF the quoted price (IF one THOUGHT to quibble with the price in the first place!!!) SOLAR TACTICS were straight down the line with a fair price, right from the beginning!!
They gave me ALL the support I needed to ensure I was WELL PREPARED to CONQUER the BEAST (SOLAR VIC) & win the PRIZE - the much coveted SOLAR VIC REBATE!!!
What's more... with all the concerns as to whether a SOLAR COMPANY is legit, can stand the tough market at the moment - especially with the concerns the SOLAR VIC REBATE SYSTEM is causing in many companies going under (mind you, it has rid us of a lot of shonky dealers!!!), I have every confidence in SOLAR TACTICS fulfilling their guarantees with my system. Denni has not 1 but 2 companies. First & foremost, his Electrician company - complete with ALL the necessary certificates etc required by SOLAR VIC, as well as his SOLAR TACTICS company.
It is, compared with many others, a young company, but one I feel is well worth giving a go. They place a lot of value on HONESTY & FAIRNESS in their pricing & have the INTEGRITY to back it all up with their service & ongoing support.
SOLAR TACTICS thank you so much for ALL you have done.
From a VERY GRATEFUL CLIENT,
Mary

Highly professional and meticulous installer!

I was impressed with this company right from the very first contact, and even more so after the installation was completed. The installation was done with great attention to detail and Dennison explained how the system works in a very user-friendly manner. I would highly recommend SolarTactics. Show additional information

Experienced Solar Installers. Small company. Right size system.Quality Product. Excellent Customer Rapport

Solar Tactics pride themselves on their customer service and providing the best solar system for a customers requirements. The sales quoting process was quick and covered my questions. They take a photo of your meter box, so there are no surprises on install day. The installation was totally organised and streamlined, they all knew exactly what to do, and cleaned up. Dennison, then gave a tutorial, complete with warranty applications, app reading and paperwork. Followup emails and phone calls answered any questions. The install was done as soon as the Vic Solar rebate and loans process was completed. Solar Tactics organised all the necessary notifications to VicSolar, Ausnet and my power company to change my plan. My system has already saved a number of trees! Solar Tactics make installing a solar system problem free and I have recommended them to family who also installed solar panels. Show additional information

Absolutely the best guys to deal with

Very happy with everything Alan, Dennison and the guys did for us.

We got three quotes and Solar Tactics's was by far the most professional, most comprehensive and best value for money. They even found a way to install four more cells than the other two companies thought possible, giving us another 1.5kw.

Installation was a breeze too. Despite having to battle terrible weather and a tricky household electrical cabling setup, the guys were just amazing. So friendly and capable and once they were done we were away.

The system they installed works great. It's the perfect balance of quality where it's needed and value for the rest. We couldn't be happier.

The gentleman I dealt with at Solar Tactics was patient, well mannered and thorough when providing answers to questions, queries and concerns.

My brother arranged the installation for me. Dennison and his team did a great job and I am very happy. Show additional information
Solar Tactics listened to my concerns about solar panel and inverters issues that arose from months of researching the systems on offer. Alan and Denis were able to deliver a system which met what I was after. Specifically, they were able to include Tigo with the panels to reduce loses due to shading. They provided a excellent service with punctuality and care. I also was impressed by their standard use of drone to capture a set of excellent photos of the completed installation.
I was very impressed with Solar Tactics and recommend them to anyone looking for solar panel installation

I had 3 Quotes Solar Tactics quoted on the best system suited to my needs due to shading issues, the other quotes were slightly less but not the best option.
Solar Tactics are very efficient, reliable, and provide quality service from start to finish, I highly recommend

I am very happy about the services provided by solar Tactics from start to end. Dennison is professional, thoughtful and reliable. He was always patient with my questions and tried to explain all the details about how the system works.
The installation was very efficient, 4 persons finished in 6 hours and cleaned up all the rubbish things. Amazing work!
I have recommended to my friends and families. Thank you Solar Tactics!

Dennison took the time to explain equipment and how system works. He arrived with a team of four polite young men who worked efficiently, leaving no mess. Team arrived on time and finished installation on same day. Following installation, Perry in the office contacted me to ensure I had received all relevant documentation and understood application process. Nothing was a problem. Phone calls returned promptly. I was kept informed the whole way. I have no hesitation in recommending Solar Tactics and have done so for family and friends. Show additional information
We have only just had the system installed 2 weeks ago so we cannot realistically judge the performance except to say, we have free electricity during the day and we have had no problems so far.
We are very pleased with the diligent and professional manner of Dennison, Alan and the team. There was no pressure, no rushing, no question that was not answered satisfactorily and we felt well prepared for the installation. Nothing was a problem, and we were kept informed the whole way. Comprehensive, thorough, complete, neat and prompt and completed on time. Great communication and administration of all documentation.
We are happy to recommend the solar tactics team. Thank you!

Solar Tactics are a fantastic family business. My initial contact was with Alan, who is knowledgeable and friendly and was happy to answer all my questions. Very professional excellent customer service. Peregrina organised all the paperwork and helped with lodging our application for the Vic solar rebate. She sent follow up emails and phone calls which was much appreciated. Lovely to deal with. Dennison and his team installed our Longi panels and Fronius Inverter quickly and efficiently. We are very happy with Solar Tactics and would recommend to family and friends. Show additional information
Very impressed with Solar Tactics from beginning to end. I had plenty of technical questions and they were very willing to patiently explain all the options and variables. The installation was booked in very quickly and the installation team did a fantastic job. Really lovely helpful people who were consultative and good at problem solving when challenges arose. I'm very happy with the positioning of the panels (taking into account heritage overlay) and then also very happy with the follow up customer service, ensuring that I had all relevant documentation to apply for the rebate and was able to use the app so we can monitor the performance of the panels. Price was also competitive and quality panels and inverter installed. I very highly recommended Solar Tactics. Show additional information
Dennison and his team were very efficient, their workmanship was second to none. There was no hard sales talk, or sign now and you get some special deal. The price was lower than other quotes, for the exact same equipment! They took their time to explain the whole system. Also offering great ongoing support. You would be crazy to use any one else!

Solar Tactics were a pleasure to deal with from start to end. They are professional, efficient, helpful, courteous while always putting the customer first. I have no hesitation recommending this firm for your solar panels. Show additional information
I had already had a few quotes from other suppliers but had not felt confident going forward with the purchase. Dealing with Solar Tactics was significantly better than any other company I'd been in contact with. I changed my system size and orientation a few times while trying to optimise my setup and they were always patient and generous with their time. The install went very smoothly and quickly, and I feel confident that if I had any issues in the future they would be prompt in resolving it. Show additional information
Awesome! God willing, no regrets! Alan, Dennison and his boys, Jarred and Cal, and last but not least Perri, were a pleasure to work with. Helpful and ever willing to attend to our queries, they guided us from start to end. They were punctual for the job, gave a thorough explanation of the system once completed, and left without leaving any mess. Post installation, Perri kindly guided us through the Solar Victoria rebate application process. Look no further if you want a helpful, reliable and trustworthy installer with no third party involvement! Show additional information

I have engaged Solar Tactics for my solar installation. I chosed the company because of the prompt quote reply, the service and the quality of the installation.
Alan (the sale person) listened to my system solar requirements & he took care of providing the quote with the system I required, not the one the company tried to sell.
From the initial quote to the post installation, the service was great. Dennison & the Team did a great installation which was neat and tidy. An aerial view of the installation was also provided post installation. Peregrina was efficient & prompt in dealing with the paperwork.
I would not hesitate in recommending the company to my relatives and friends. Solar Tactics is a great company to deal with.

The guys at Solar Tactics were exceptional in every way, from the first contact through to installation, paperwork and follow up.

The installation was on time very neat (and I'm fussy), Dennison was more than willing to make sure everything was what I wanted not just the easiest option for him (but fully compliant also).

My wife commented on how repectful, courteous and neat the whole team were - we have just finished a pool build so we have had a lot of tradies here over the last few months and these guys set the bar to a new level. When i arrived home in the morning to meet the team even the younger labourers looked me in the eye and introduced themselves - nothing like good old fashioned manners.

They were not the cheapest for a comparable (identical) spec system but I felt absolute confidence that I would have a quality installation and a longer term partnership should we have any problems or want to upgrade in the future.

When deciding to spend the extra money on these guys I was hopeing for the best but once they were on site the money was forgotten and then to top it off when the electrical inspector was here he said that these guys were the best he has come across (and he sees plenty of jobs)dont get me wrong the other companies have to be compliant but you can be rough and compliant or first class and compliant - spend a bit extra and go first class you wont regret it.
