Sunrun Solar Solar Reviews

Great service provider

This is our solar system and after having it for a month, we can already see the difference in our energy bill. Dealing with Sunrun solar from start to end was a breeze and they managed to install the entire system within less than 4 hours. Competitive pricing was one of the key factors that we had decided to go with Sunrun solar and I highly recommend their service. Show additional information

Quick response

The sales and quoting process is fast and excellent.

Installation is punctual, polite, tidy.

Customer service after installation is just average, as it took more than 3 weeks for the inspector to come and activate the system.

Satisfied customers

Sunrun Solar provided excellent customer service. Karyn was very receptive to our enquires providing numerous quotes on different systems. When visiting she gave clear information on products and costing and was very patient. Sunrun kept us informed of when the installation was going to take place. Installers were prompt, courteous and left the premises clean and tidy. An explanation was given by them in how to work the system and what the next steps were to get us connected. Thanks to all for a positive experience. Show additional information

Sunrun Solar are amazing!

Sunrun Solar are such an an company to deal with. They are very professional and knowledgeable about all of their products. Karen was so helpful and patient with helping us pick the perfect system for our home. She was always there to answer all my questions and made the process so easy. Show additional information

Generally impressed

Getting information out of Sunrun hasn't been the easiest. I waited to hear back after paying deposit and successfully applying for the state rebate, but it wasn't until I threatened to request my deposit back (after 2 weeks of silence) that I was finally booked in for installation. I'm still waiting to have a safety inspection booked in and it could be another 1-2 months before seeing the benefits. But it will all be worth it.

The two blokes that performed installation were great. Cleaned up after themselves and didn't mind me getting a few pics with a drone. Pretty impressed they managed to fit 20 panels, which is the best part of this whole deal.

An Ok Experience.

My initial experience was good. While requesting a quote my querries were answered and they were very responsive till I made the intial deposit. However, after that it took a lot of follow ups from my end to get the ball rolling after that, to get a date for the installation, chased them up for almost a month to get a date for the installation. Installation job was clean and quick. The team did a good job with the installation. The inspection is scheduled to be done on Friday this week.
However, did not receive any follow ups. Even the final payment was just an email sent that landed up in my spam folder luckly i found it as i was searching for something else. Would have appreciated even a courtesy call a lot.

Good price and great installation

The ROI calculations in the proposal were confusing but the advice on product was credible. Response times were great and very happy with the install team. Grid connection is slow but I think that is more a problem with the retailer/network.

We are looking at Solar for a second property but have issues with tree cover and the ROI.

Fantastic installer and service

Sunrun Solar were outstanding from A to Z.

My experience with Sunrun solar has been extremely professional from the very first call.

They have been so helpful throughout the whole process,and answered all my queries happily.

Tarak was very helpful and friendly. He gave us right information about solar system, panels and helped us to choose good inverter according to budget and requirements. They also organized grid connection with my electricity company.

We are so happy with whole process and would definitely recommend Sunrun Solar.

Sales rep was very helpful and informative and the installers were great and informative Show additional information

Left confused

Quoting process: I was told that someone would come to check on site, but this didn't happen.

Installation: I was told that they would fit 12 panels on my Garage, (and the quote was on this basis). Installers arrived & said you'll only get 9 panels.

They were Punctual & did most of the tidying up, but I had to clean up the mess left in the Metre Box, & I had to call them back make adjustments so that the Metre Box door would shut properly, (which they did). I believe the Grid connection was straight forward (due to an existing system).

Customer Service: There was some confusion (between the Solar Quote Co & the Installing contractor) about whether I may need to pay more for some component that was in the original quote. The quote should have been re-done, as I only got 9 panels instead of 12, but I don't recall receiving a revised Quote.

The initial (Proposal) Quote was for 12 x 300W panels: total cost to me $3889.
What I got was 9 x 330W panels (same brand & type), same 3kW Inverter: total cost to me $5,318.
No Revised Quote was given, only a final Statement/Invoice (which I have paid).

After receiving the completion documentation, the Installation contractor requested more information to apply for the Gov't Rebate, long after the Solar Quote Co had assured me that they had the Rebate secured.
With the variation between the final cost to the Quote, I am not sure now, if I paid for 12 panels or just 9.

Had to do a price beat to get better price. Communication is patchy. Hope no issues. Too soon to tell at the moment. Show additional information

Very good installation

There were a few unnecessary delays and communication was lacking when the installers had to come back a second day to complete the installation Show additional information

Fantastic customer service, great price, hassle free!

Wow, such a fantastic experience dealing with the Sunrun team.
From the quote until finish the customer service was perfect. They organised everything in an efficient and professional matter and I barely needed to get involved or follow anything up.
The price was very competitive, and I'd say that given the high quality product they supply, they would probably be best value for Victorian customers.
Doing the right thing for the environment, at a great price, without any hassle and great after sale service - what more could you want...

Exactly as I hoped for

All worked out as I hoped. Very little stress in this part of the process. Sales, Ravi, was polite and informed. The installation team did everything in one day and in a very workman-like manner. (I'm a retired electrical contractor). The Electrical inspector turned up a few days later and was happy with the job, also commenting that the price was very reasonable. Show additional information

Great installation, great installers

Quote was done effortlessly, technician very knowledgeable. Installers were polite and punctual, job completed on time specified. Great customer service, technician set up wireless monitoring and are organizing grid connection. Show additional information

Customer service could improve

The sales person was great with providing quotes quickly and answering our questions. However, we had to follow up multiple times to get an installation date after we accepted the quote. The installer was excellent, punctual, kept us updated and completed the installation quickly. The customer service after the installation was lacking with poor communication. It has been over two weeks since installation and we have not yet received our paperwork. Show additional information

Good install, terrible organisation

The sales and quoting process was easy and very reassuring. Adam was good at getting back to us at convenient times and very good at explaining the in's and out's. He was very accommodating and understanding that given our jobs, we couldn't take time off at the drop of a hat and needed to book proper dates for things in advance, especially as access for the install would mainly be in a back yard with dogs in it.

However, once the install started happening, this wasn't the case. We came home one day a few days before our booked install date to find our fence had been damaged, a bunch of scaffolding was in our locked back yard, and our dogs were afraid to be in the back yard. We'd had nothing about this communicated to us prior. I had to get in touch with the scaffolders myself in order to ensure they didn't break in again while we weren't home (we are still waiting for the scaffolding to come down because they "can't make bookings and don't know which day they'll be in the area"). On explaining all this to sunrun, our contact (no longer Adam despite his assurances of being with us "through the whole thing") merely explained that the scaffolders tried to call us once they'd arrived (then just done as they pleased when they couldn't get an immediate answer), reassured us that they probably didn't do anything to the dogs, and ignored all concerns about any kind of prior notice. Likewise we've just received 4 phone calls from the inspector they've organised to do the post-install inspection, "informing" us that he'll be here tomorrow sometime between 9 and 11, again with no prior notice. I tried to explain that this was unreasonable to him, and he gave me a 2 minute lecture on how he doesn't book house visits in advance and he just lets us know when he's going to be doing it and if he expected him to work after hours (which we didn't), we'd be paying him extra. We don't understand how people are operating under the assumption they can pick days to work on our property, give next to no (or no) notice, and expect everything to be fine. We feel at least a little mislead by the sales rep in the first place.
The installation of the panels went fine, it rained on the day but we were able to figure out another day (in advance) with the electricians, but they were about the only part of the process that had any kind of reliability or consideration. We're still living under the threat of coming home, finding the scaffolding is gone and not having any way to seek repair of the fence.

Pleasant experience

Signed with Sunrun because of its competitive quote and recommendation from friend. Installation went smoothly. The guys came at 7am and finished by lunch time. Job was done neat and tidy. Sunrun has been very responsive with my after-sales enquiries. Tarak even reached to help with my phone connection problem at home. Show additional information


Just completed my solar panels installation. The sunrun solar company has the best price and customer service. Prompt responses and follow up. Staff are fantastic and very nice too! Show additional information
Sunrun Solar provided a very impressive service. Ravi and Tarak explained everything in minute detail and never showed any frustration when we kept asking 100's of questions to try and learn as much about solar as possible. No pushy sales service, Ravi and Tarak allowed us time to think over what we were going into and after getting several quotes from other companies and experiencing their sales techniques, we knew Sunrun were going to be the most superior company to deal with. Our 4.0 Fronius system and 14 REC panels were installed today...installers Steve and Ethan were also wonderful, taking time to explain carefully to us all the elements of what they were doing and again answering whatever questions we posed. Sunrun ensured the installation occurred on the exact date as planned and it.
From the moment we started the process with Finn on Solar Quotes to the installation day we took a few months as we explored everything we needed to know. System running prefectly today and now waiting to have our inspection and the system officially turned on..we can then report back with how it is operating.

Great experience overall

I was confused by the market and happy to find solar quotes. They found the 3 retailers. All were very helpful and professional. They all contributed to my knowledge. I chose sunrun solar because they had the products, they provided superior advice and the best price. Julien was excellent. Relaxed, patient and accommodating. It was a relief for me. The installation went well. They came when they said they would and came back to complete the WiFi connection. All in all the process went very well. Easy, informative and very professional. I would highly recommend solar quotes and sunrun solar. Show additional information

Great process and seamless installation.

Great, smooth and painless experience from our end! Tarak was always helpful and responsive. Sometimes would even go out of his way after hours to make sure queries were resolved. Quote was delivered promptly and explained. They even managed through my timeframes of having to move the install date a few times due to it being a busy period for me over the Christmas holidays.

Great afterwards too in resolving any queries I had after installation. Once again, seamless process which I could not have any issues with.

I choose to go with sunrun solar out of many options that I had because of multiple reasons, to start with, they educated me on Solar system an products rather then focusing just in prices which other companies don't do. I was dealing with Tarak and he explained difference between different products like LG, REC,Longi and Canadian for panels & Fronius, Solaredge and Enphase for Inverters. We decided to go with Longi panels and Fronius inverter as it suited the best to out needs and affordability. Tarak designed system to meet our consumption requirement. On the day of installation, installers came right on time and it went all smooth, no dramas. Dealing with sunrun solar was a breeze, they don't push you for up-sell, provides detailed information on products, quick before and after installation service and professional staff. If anyone is looking for Solar, I highly recommend Sunrun Solar, remember that solar is going to be a permanent on your roof so dont compromise on quality for couple of hundred dollars, Sunrun Solar is locally established company and you will get results for what you are paying. Thanks once again for your services. Show additional information
I have paid a deposit, with installation fixed for the 12 June.
In the mean time the Solar Victoria Rebate Scheme has reached cap.
They failed to advise me to apply for it ASAP.
I will be applying for it on the 1 July 2019.

Tarak and the boys were professional from the first contact. He came out and discussed all of the available options whilst providing us comprehensive recommendations tailored to our exact needs. The boys who came out were punctual and respectful whilst getting the job done. I was impressed by their efforts and the fact that they cleaned up after themselves. The products we have are fantastic and we are already reaping the rewards. The follow up after-care from Sunrun Solar has been great as they have provided us the required documentation to receive our Victorian grant. They have contacted our energy provider so we can begin receiving our rebates and they also secured the Federal Government grant. I highly recommend the entire team at Sunrun Solar.

Great company to deal with. Contacted us within 24hours of your email. inspection the next day and we are in the country. Quote the next day with solar edge micro inverters as we have shading issues and quality solar panels.Installers were excellent, explained what the process was, professional, neat and tidy, careful and knowledgeable. Our system is 20kw and it took them 2 and a bit days to install and it rained on them most of the time. there was no mess. process took about 4 weeks from the time of quote. An excellent experience from start to finish. The guy who come to check the installation after completion knew the installers because of how good their work is. a big thanks to all who were involved as i was unsure initially of what i was going to get but in the end i got more than what i thought i was going to get.

The 2 months of speaking to so many solar companies was confusing and frustrating.
But solar quotes advice really helped me to understand what to look out for.
I feel very confident that I have chosen a great solar package.
I went with the Fronius 5KW inverter and the REC half cut panels in black. Taking it to 6.6 KW
Thank you Finn and Margherita. You were a massive help.

I never go as far as wanting to leave a feedback for a service I received but I felt compelled this time. Having heard so many horror stories regarding solar installations we were very hesitant at first but with the federal and now state rebate we took the gamble. I talked to a few reps of different companies. It was when I talked to Ravi of Sunrun Solar that I felt comfortable going ahead as he was happy to answer all of questions and we were satisfied with the proposed process.

Everything was explained in detail and he was made available when ever we called up or he followed up right away. He made sure we got the right product and accredited installers to comply with the state rebate while also negotiating a really good price.

Once we agreed on the price installation commenced shortly after and it took the installers to complete the job in 6 hours(6 kw system/22 panels).

We currently have had the system installed for 4-5 months. Right now in the summertime the system produces up to 42 kwh/day when its sunny all day which has exceeded our expectations.

Thumbs up to all the guys at Sunrun Solar especially Ravi
