Solar Tactics Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

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.

Alan's customer service is exceptional! These guys arent too pushy, they allowed me to take my time with the decision and they quoted me exactly what I asked for. Install was done quickly and professionally by Dennison and Perry was so on top of paperwork, I didn't have to chase them for anything. All in all a great experience and I'm super happy with the system and price. Show additional information

All the positive reviews below are spot on, nothing to fault with Solar Tactics. True professionals in every aspect.

Spoke with a number of solar companies, and everyone of them seemed disinterested in my business or wanted to charge thousands more for the same product. Spoke to Solar Tactics and Alan was a breath of fresh air, professional and knowledgeable with all their products, provided recommendations and advise for our current and future solar needs. Alan answered all my questions without any hesitation and was prompt in returning phone calls or messages.
Installation by Dennison and his team were very professional. Clean and efficient installation. Dennison provided a detailed run through of the inverter, Fronius app and Fronius web portal. Peregrina provided all the paperwork required promptly. They are just a fantastic business to deal with.

I do not like leaving reviews, but this business deserves one, more business operated like Solar Tactics are needed. Would recommend to anyone thinking of having solar installed.

Solar Tactics were recommended by a work colleague. The Solar Tactics team provide a very quick, easy to understand process to deciding on system size. Their quote was more than competitive, as they provided a better quality system for less than other quotes. Installation was very thorough and the explanation of maximising benefits of solar was also thorough. I have no hesitation in recommending Solar Tactics. Show additional information
From the first time I spoke with Alan in the office until the moment Denison and his crew departed on installation day I was given first class service. Alan always have time for my questions and was happy to go back and forth to organise exactly the system that I wanted and was suited to my requirements.
On installation day(which was prompt) Denison and his crew arrived on time and were courteous and neat and did a great job, explaining as they went what they were up to and answering all my questions.
I am often disappointed with service in general. Solar Tactics were excellent and I recommend them highly
When the independent inspector came around a few days later to check the work he said � this must be Denison's work. I inspect for about 50 installers and this crew are a stand out number one�
This is very pleasing from a customer point of view

Excellent experience with Solar Tactics; from sales to installation to post-sale. Their pricing was very competitive and their customer service was very personalised. They respond to emails and sms in a very timely manner.
The installation was very professional and they provided a walkthrough of the system once installed and also provide information of the �next steps� of the process.
Very happy with this small family business and have referred them to friends and relatives who have been looking into getting a Solar PV system.

Excellent workmanship. Great experience and the best quality tradesmen. Would not find better in the local area. First class installation completed within 2 days for 2 x 5kw units with 36 panels. Will reduce my power costs by 60 percent. Thanks again Dennison and his team. Show additional information
Very impressed with the high level of professional service delivered by Solar Tactics, from initial communication, system design, quote and installation, to post-installation support and follow-up. Their price was the most competitive out of the quotes I obtained. Alan was proactive in keeping me updated with progress and always available to follow up any questions I had during the system design stage. Dennison (and team) did a fantastic job with the installation and provided some great advice on the day, and a thorough run through of the system set-up and inverter. The drone photos of the panels on the roof was a bonus! Great to see such excellent customer service and workmanship still in existence - I would definitely recommend using Solar Tactics for your solar installation. Show additional information
Dennison from Solar Tactics was very thorough in explaining solar and ready to take calls even late at night. I have spoken to him around 1 hour at 10pm to understand solar and he was very patient to explain everything to me. That really impressed me which is why I went with him.

Right from quote to installation and post that customer service is excellent. Always responds to my message or calls back.
Got tip of the range inverter with tier 1 long panels installed and they are generating a massive 40kwh on bright sunny days.

Overall I would highly recommend solar tactics and Dennison.

I have already recommended an office colleague who also got it installed. I am so impressed that I have given his number to couple of other friends.

Well done solar tactics. You deserve/earned all the recommendations from me.

Solar Tactics were brilliant from Sales to installation. Very professional and extremely helpful. System was reasonably priced and I did my research on the invertor used and it was the in the top 5 brands (number 1) Full explanation was given on how to read the invertor after installation. I also decided on Solar Tactics because they are local to where I live and it was a great decision. Show additional information

Going solar is a big decision. I did a lot of research on solar. There are so many installers to choose from and you do not know which installers are good. Some people advised me that I should go with installers who have been doing business for more than 10 years. However, I thought if young installer companies join the solar market, they will seriously want to build good reputation and trust. I got 3 quotes from solarquotes website and I went ahead with Solar Tactics. it turned out to be a great decision as Solar Tactics was able to install my system quickly and did a great job. I am very happy with them and I definitely refer you to Solar Tactics. Show additional information
I am very pleased with Solar Tactics efficient service and the quick responses I received from them.
Dennison provided detailed quote complete with technical information and pay back calculations.
The boys did a fantastic job with the installation, great workmanship, explained how solar works, how to monitor my solar and how to be self energy efficient.
They also provided additional savings by Removing the Old/Damaged hot water system solar panels and changing some broken Tiles.

The follow up service After installation is great.

I highly recommend Solar Tactics.

After discussing solar power with a variety of different installers I'm really glad we decided to go with Solar Tactics. They made the entire process go really smoothly from start to finish. From looking at our energy bills, then listening to our requirements and expectations, through to examining the roof of our house and putting together designs of an affordable yet high quality system. Dennison and his team of installers were very courteous and professional and took pride in their work. I would definitely recommend Solar Tactics to anyone considering installing solar. Show additional information
Solar Tactics were very professional in their quote and more importantly, answered all the questions i had before we agree to install. They gave various options from the type of panels to inverter, as the cost depended on the type of panels and inverter used. Their work was not sub-contractor out and installed by owner of the company and had a skin the the installation. The workmanship was excellent and professional. The explained how the system worked after installation including setting up the app to track the solar performance etc.

After installation, the follow up service were very good. This includes ensuring my meter was changed with my provider etc.

I got my quotes through solar I am a house Renovator/Builder. Dennison from Solar Tactics called me the next day. I knew from talking to Dennison he knew exactly what he was talking about and told me how he would design a system that would suit my requirements. He did that efficiently and professional. I would highly recommended Dennison and his team. Unlike a lot of installers Dennison and his company are in the solar businesses for the long run! Which is great for the industry!

I choose Solar Tactics as Dennison was both the owner of the company and the installer. Very reliable service. Clean, efficient and honest tradesman. I'm a builder and have worked with many tradesman and Dennison is one I would recommend. The system that I researched prior to contacting Solar Tactics was a Fronius Inverter, the only European inverter other than the ABB from Italy. I may have gone for the SMA but that is now made in China. That Fronius Inverter was coupled with tier one Jinko Panels. I'm very happy with the price and with the system. I'm exporting over 30kWh per day. Thanks Dennison Show additional information
