Sunbank Solar 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:
The "selling" process was off putting. I was looking for a Tesla Powerwall 2 and the inference from SunBank Sales was to continually refer me to other battery makes. And then they insisted on taping the conversation and saying they can supply any other battery if they could not source a Powerwall 2. Then after the deposit (which they demanded to be 40% of the purchase price) when the order was placed smelled to me of a company that had liquidity problems. (When I had my solar installed one provider went into Administration after taking the deposit.) At the time I was unaware that consumers can order direct from the Tesla site - at a lower price!!! And with Tesla support now in Australia.) SunBank sent me "their Terms and Conditions" after placing the order - which for supply of a battery was in part irrelevant - demanding that I sign any paper to transfer the credits to them (the original installer had received those credits). And that they had 12 months to provide a battery (any battery!!!!!!). The terms and conditions referred to itself as a "contract" - where I had not agreed to most of the terms. Very poorly written and in part decreased or negated standard the consumer rights. By saying it was a contract for the provision in 12 months this goes beyond the Visa and MasterCard chargeback time of 6 months. And because they call it a contract, then the chargebacks for non-provision of product may not be agreed by the merchant bank. The Sales person was pushy and afterwards I just wanted to reverse the transaction - but the T&C's said there was a $400 charge for cancellation. Then they work with Solar Service Group - who managed the installation and "billing". The Installer needed an AC Isolator - which he had to source as he did not have one on his truck and the Solar Group was persistent that I pay extra for that part - yet I have emails saying I had a fixed quote. Also the pre-installation inspection cost was unknowingly added to the balance outstanding - and this had to be identified and reversed. The installer was by himself and we had to help him carry the 125kg battery onsite. Installer took 8.5 hours and then had to source and extra part from Telsa. The Solar Service Group did not organise with the installer a follow up call to finish the job until I had contacted Telsa direct and the company to ask why the battery was hanging on the wall but still not working - and had been for 2 weeks. The installer then took another 2 hours to complete the job. We still dont have any warranty paperwork or the Tesla App working. I spent too much (compared to others installing the battery) going through SunBank Solar and the service / installation was a nightmare. But - the Tesla battery is now working and the house is running off the battery. What was funny was I would get a call from Solar Service Group saying they would ring me when they knew the date of the installation - and that happened three times..... Show additional information
I found your website invaluable, especially the questions to ask prospective installers. Once armed with that information I felt confident going ahead with solar. Show additional information
Sunbank Solar were quick to provide a quote and installation was prompt upon receiving my order. The installation team and sales representatives went about their work in very professional manner and I'm more than happy with the system they installed. Just looking forward to some sunny days.
