Original Review on 22-10-2020:

Very happy customer.

Sales and quote was mostly efficient. There was no site visit before installation. The design needed a little altering on installation day as the number of panels in each of the two strings was not properly set. This did allow us to add an additional panel to reach 6.66kW. We had some installation delays but only due to inclement weather. Installation process was efficient and all installers were polite. Setup technician was very informative and helpful. I would give them at least 10 out of 10. Installation was just completed today and we are running on solar power now but will need to wait until the power company installs the smart meter before we get fully operational regarding tariffs. A very happy customer. Original ratings

12 months later we asked Adam: "Are you happy with the performance of your system so far?"

System is better than we expected. So far our system has produced 6 MWh, of which we used 1.23 MWh and exported 4.81 MWh. We also imported 2.23 MWh from the supplier. We figure the importing is due to not have a battery and consuming electricity after sundown. We are planning a battery purchase are advised by our regular plumber/drainer/gasfitter to wait until the battery supply improves. We are also preparing to swap our instant gas hot water system for an electric unit. Very happy with the whole process, including installation and performance.

I can't rate The Solar Family high enough - the whole experience from first contact to sales to install to after-sales support has been perfect.

Highly Recommended

Their salesman actually visited the house (not all companies did and it isn't necessarily required) and this provided a great opportunity to raise numerous questions and he provided some very useful facts that aided us in selecting the right system. They provided two quotes for slightly different systems - we had agreed to this during the visit. When comparing all quotes beween different installers, Solar Family was quick to respond to questions via email so that I could make an informed decision. Due to COVID-19 the selected panels were not available so they replaced them with the same panel but slightly less power. To compensate, they provided two additional panels at no extra cost to bring the system back to spec (actually I got more power). The installation team were very professional. It was a large job spread over a few days and they tidied up completely after work each day. It was great chatting the the business owner on site about solar in general and my actual system. Their admin staff were very courteous via email and we were always kept us informed via phone texts.

They were very prompt with a visit and followed up the same week with a quote.
Also offered me the same top quality panels I had installed from my first solar system.
They had plenty of time to talk me through issues and about what I wanted and compromised with me for the best system financially, technically.and for the future.
Could not be happier!

Good Service, Value for Money.

The Solar Family provided excellent service all the way through the quotation process, orgainsing everthing for the install, then completed the job on time, with very professional installers to a high standard. After Sales support has been great too.

Their quote was very competitive in a buyers market. I selected The Solar Family as they provided the best value for money, combined with peace of mind from a reputable local company. They are a down to earth, trustworthy company well worth having a look at.

Summary of our Experience

We have recently had a solar system installed on our roof by “The Solar Family”. From the first contact we have found its representatives to be extremely helpful and remarkably efficient.
Initially, the sales representative discussed our needs and the suitability and costs of different solutions until we fully understood the proposed system. From then on the firm handled all administrative details and the schedule for installation.
All went without a single hitch or tile damage. The working team could scarcely have been more effective or polite and the installation of some 20 panels was completed in just a few hours. We couldn’t have been helped more or have been more satisfied, and we would recommend “The Solar Family” without hesitation to any friend contemplating investing in solar panels.
