Solaray Energy Pty Ltd 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:
Solaray are great and we are particularly delighted with the Enphase system and the ability to monitor usage via the app and it tells us our carbon offset - the trees we save etc. We have reduced our power usage significantly due to awareness of how much different appliances use and we have been pouring power into the grid. We got 14 panels and 2 batteries installed but are thinking of getting 5 more panels and another battery as this would mean that we could draw zero power from the grid. Show additional information
I appreciate your service, and two of the three made speedy and helpful contact. In the end, we realised we wanted a better quality product. Show additional information

Solaray and a few others came back to me with quotes with Solaray being the most thorough and explanitive as well as being the most competitive price. Unfortunately the two suppliers you sourced for me made phone contact but have not come back with the actual quote despite me attempting to contact them and obtain the quotations. Thanks for your attempts and the information you publish, I have been well informed because of you. Show additional information
Very responsive to queries and happy to visit the house to quote. Show additional information
Opted for micro-inverter 4.5kW system, was impressed with flexibilty and how Solaray accomodated my changing needs based on panel locations, performance and my needs etc. Not installed as yet, will be early Feb, dealings thus far have been excellent. Hopefully that will continue. Happy to update after everything up and running. Show additional information
I will let you know once the system is installed. Very happy with Solaray's service in telling me where we are at. They also help me with choosing a supplier.

Thank you for your help.

System has been ordered but not installed on time as promised. probably would not recommend them. We are using these people because a friend used them successfully. Show additional information

I didn't really read this site until after I paid my deposit. Once I did pay and saw some reviews I was concerned...but i shouldn't have worried. My experience is 100% satisfied.

My 4 star rating for value is based on the fact LG panels and Enphase microinverters are more expensive than other tier 1 equipment. They are certainly top quality though.

Patrick in Sales was excellent. A helpful straight-shooter who sent me the quotes as I chopped and changed. Not once did he drop the ball.

Signup and paying my deposit was easy. I had to wait about 4 weeks (tough wait but understandable at this time of year). I rang the week prior to check everything was on track and it was. If I had checked my email I would have seen the installation confirmation from Tammy already sitting there.

Day of install. Matt and Chad turn up 7am as expected. They were ready and got stuck into it. Top blokes and happy to answer my questions. They confirmed the panel layout and where the controller would live and off they went. Methodical, professional and helpful. By around 1pm the system was up and running, making power and saving me money.

Day after install. Around 2pm a non-related sparkie replaced the meter and accidentally switches around some wires which only affects the monitoring.

Day 2 after install. 8am I receive a call from Andrew at Solaray saying something up with the system. Happy to send a tech to fix free of charge, even though it wasn't their mistake. I call my parkie who comes around and fixes the issue with the help of Andrew.

As you can see before, during and after sales service is excellent. Thanks to the Solaray team. I'll certainly be back for more panels and a battery system.

Sales person was friendly and knowledgeable. He was very patient with all my questions and answered everything to my satisfaction.
Installers were on time, friendly, efficient and tidy! They put the inverter exactly where I asked them to and I was very happy with the work they did.
Overall, communication between when we ordered the system and the install could have been a bit better as I had to chase up the installation manager a few times but once I did she was very quick to schedule my install.
Can't make a great deal of commentary on the system itself at this stage as it has only been running a few days but output seems good.

4.2kW system consisting of 14x 300w trina panels and a 4kw fronius inverter - installed in just less than 4 hours. Amazing customer service, great pricing, high quality installation - not sure what else one could want. AAA+ Show additional information
We have placed an order and payed a deposit. The installation has been approved by our electricity supplier and we are waiting for an installation date. Possibly in the new year, so cannot comment on installation and customer service yet. To date we have been kept informed with the progress of the job. Show additional information
Frustrated with ongoing changes from the company .
Original scope is 3.5kw and end up with 2.9kw
Show additional information
The supplier we decided to go through was very good in communicating with us at first (only thru mobile and email, no personal meet ups.) After we settled the downpayment (29 October order placed and dp made), we haven't heard from them an update of what's going next. Took them 4 weeks to respond to our calls and follow up emails regarding the status. And we're now scheduled to have our solar installed on 21 Dec.2017. And yes another long way to wait. Hopefully it's not going to be a move to a later date. Show additional information
After three months research and more than 10 quotes . I chose Solaray to install a 11.52 kW Solar system. Consisting of 36x LG NeON2 320 watt panels.with MyEnlighten monitoring system. And also a Tesla Powerwall2. Patrick from Solaray actually came to my house and looked at my house roof . And then gave me several options on panel layout and system configurations with pricing. And also worked out where the best place would be to place the Tesla Powerwall2 when Time comes for it be installed. Patrick gave great advice. He was never pushy or tried to flog certain product. And that’s more than I can say for the other companies I dealt with through out this process. After paying my deposit then dealt with Tammy, Solaray's installation coordinator. Who was absolutely brilliant. After couple of weeks of paperwork I had my system installed on 23 November. The guys who installed the system turned up on time and did a great job. Since the system has been installed it has been performing above my expectations. On one particular day it produced 80 kW. And on average around 65 kW per day. That is around 30% more than what Patrick told me this system would probably produce. I think he was being very Conservative at the time. I am just waiting now to have my Tesla Powerwall2 installed. I would highly recommend using this company. They sell a quality product and the service doesn’t stop after you pay your deposit. In my experience so far The service only gets better. I hope this review will be helpful to anyone who reads it. Show additional information

We have a friend who has used this company, so went with his recommendation. To be installed next week so hopefully all smooth sailing. I also checked with you to see if you knew of this company and was told they were a "gold" supplier. (I don't actually know what your rating system is for suppliers but hopefully gold means good!!) Show additional information
Best of three quotes for a micr oinverter system- quoted exactly what I specified (one other substituted a lesser panel spec), Solaray beat the remaining guy on price.
Was very pleased with installation and service.
So far, system is consistently performing slightly above the estimated output on final quote
Would recommend them as a supplier to anyone who asks

We have just signed with Solaray for a large ($20,000+) system with battery. A big purchase, so we really did our research. I have to say that this experience is as bad, if not worse than buying a car - lots of conflicting information - you think you know all you need and then another curve ball; lots of BS and attempts to mislead; lots of load mouthed, self opinionated salesmen (yes they were ALL men). So given my "interesting" three week journey I am keen to share with everyone else out there on the solar merry-go-round. This is my INITIAL review, because as said, we have only just signed. I will provide feedback after installation and then after assessing the efficacy of the product and the follow-up service from Solaray.

I have explained elsewhere (further information) why we decided to go with Solaray. Only time will tell whether we have made the correct decision, but we really did our homework - indeed I think my stack of papers and spreadsheet comparing quotes (product; retailer; price etc) scared some salesmen because some did not even send through the promised quote!

SQ feedback: Goodness Solar Quotes - having "fantastic" as the top rating choice is an incredibly high bar, and probably in the scheme of questionnaire/ratings design not really best practice. It is such an enormous step up form "good" that I had significant difficulty choosing it for any (felt like the time I awarded 100% for a university essay)! All that being said your site was very useful and a good stepping off point for other sites/information.

The rail system to mount the panels isn't flexible enough to adjust the panel position relative to the purlins. Our panels jut above the ridge line when there is plenty of space for them to be neatly flush or just below. This is why the installation only got a "good" rating.

The power output peaks at 2.7kW. Yet there are 10 LG 320N panels rated at 320 watts. The sun angle at the ideal time of day is currently less than 10 degrees off being perpendicular to the panels. So the real world performance of the system is about 15% less than it's claimed performance. Thus rating for quality of system only gets a "good".

The system uses Enphase micro inverters and tracks the performance of each panel. There are other systems which produce similar power for less money, so the system is not the "best" value for money, but is still very good. We preferred the AC coupled arrangement so that we can add additional panels in the future which may face other directions and were prepared to pay a little extra for this ability.

My impression is that there is a lack of hunger for work in an industry that has such massive potential to create jobs in this country. The systems in place are so massively inefficient that I have contributed over 500kW/hrs into the grid and am still not receiving a cent for it. This is probably how Ausgrid would like to keeps things working. They will pay ridiculous prices to inefficient obsolete coal-fired units but delay recognising any other power inputs. The industry is not helped by a government that apparently will defiantly resist the momentum of industry, power comps and the population to transition to economically and enviromentally superior solutions.

It seems better to fight one battle at a time. When I get the grid to recognise my system I will start looking at batteries. My system is, however, a thing of great beauty and I marvel ay how we can't find enough devices to absorb its output during the day even in early September.

Really happy with the quality of the installation. The guys installing were very professional and did a great job all round. Installed 7kw in August and already generated 3.26MWh of zero emissions electricity! Show additional information
The quotes I received were prompt. The decision between Solaray and Solartech was difficult as both gave great information without pushing me into quick decisions. The experience of both consultants was evident in the way they were able to break- down the information in a way I could understand.
The best decision I made was to read your blog and use the tools you gave to assist a novice to make the best informed choice.
Thank you very much.

Hi Jim,

Thank you for the review and congratulations on going solar! We can't wait to install your Tesla Powerwall 2, and we will be in touch closer to the date to confirm all the details.

Powerwall 2 has been a huge success, and Solaray is now the most experienced Powerwall installer in NSW with hundreds of households lining up to be amongst the first installations in Australia.

The good news is that Tesla has significantly ramped up production and some very large shipments are on the way to Australia, so the waiting list is expected to clear very quickly. The feedback from our first customers is nearly perfect so far, everyone is loving Powerwall 2 and the effect it is having on their power bills.

Thanks again, and please get in touch with our support team if you have any questions. We are here to help.

Good price for quality system. Quick installation. If they are more assertive in explaining the entire installation and post installation process, it would have been perfect.

Hi Jun,

Thank you very much for the feedback. I'm sorry to hear we didn't explain the post install process clearly, I'll pass on that feedback for you. Please let me know if you have any questions moving forward, especially now that you are up and running. We have a dedicated support team who can help you configure the Enphase online monitoring and to make sure you understand how it all works.

We'd love to hear from you later in the year to see how the system is performing, especially now that the days are starting to get a little longer.

All the best,

We had a good deal with them, EOFY sale. They were a good deal cheaper than the nearest quote for the same LG panels 330Kw with Enphase S270.
They were responsive and installed on the day as promised. The system is up and running and I'm getting the good production stats.

Solaray has agreed to rectify a problem with monitoring at their own expense (as it may not be under warranty). This is a welcome decision which I commend. Show additional information

I could not connect to the internet, so monitoring is being provided, and the Bidirectional meter has yet to be installed and no indication when this will happen. Things we agreed that Solaray would do. One phone call and two emails have not been answered.

Two quotes offered Trina panels or the more expensive LG, both with micro-inverters, one quote just offered Trina. Given the consistency of the sizing and technology offered, I went with Solaray because they were first to respond and were very engaging in understanding the site, the new build situation and sizing the system with regard to our living patterns of home use and our estimated consumption. They were also patient in explaining the technology and rationale for their recommendations. Show additional information
In retrospect, if I wish to get Storage Battery, I should have gone for the system with a SolarEdge inverter. This simplifies the installation of a battery and reduces losses because the power has to be inverted twice. This was not explained to me properly by either parties at the time Show additional information
Customer service has been rated poor. Our inverter broke down several weeks ago while still under warranty.
It took 10 days for e service person to call around to confirm the break down.
Several weeks later we are still waiting to have a replacement inverter installed.
Very poor after sales service.

7 weeks on from installation and radio silence, having raised issues with the company on he day of installation they have not completed the handover and I have issues unresolved in regards to the output of the system based on what was promised. I haven't been set up to monitor the usage either.
The company have not responded my concerns and queries and I have been left with no option other than to take this to fair trading.

Ronnie the salesman was great. After that, the communication with the actual company was not always satisfactory. It took 3 goes to get them to acknowledge my desired panel layout, and even then they did not install some of the panels where I wanted. However, now that it is installed everything seems to be working satisfactorily. My main complaint would be with the Solaredge internet connection. The SE5000 says it cannot get a signal from my modem, but both my phone and laptop get a signal at the same place. I've yet to chase this up with either Solaray or Solaredge, as this only affects my in-depth monitoring, not the actual performance of the system. Show additional information
