Tindo Solar Solar Reviews

Installers were excellent, there was a hiccup with the billing process which almost made us cancel

Installation excellent, customer service from Tondo not real good. After a hiccup with the pricing,due to computer hitch,no after sales backup or is all ok now? Show additional information

Tindo solar for my house.

researching Tindo and others

Tindo quoting process very helpful. Information about the product was comprehensive. Can see on-line how they are made or visit the factory. No problems with installation. Attended when they said they would. Everything went smoothly. They requested full payment before it was up and running which I didn't agree with so I told them I was holding a small % back till it was up and running and they were okay with that. Excellent easy to understand Solar Analytics who are also very helpful if you have questions. Researching Solar Quotes was extremely helpful in the lead up to my decision making.

Great local installer,for S.A. The whose company based close to home was very handy!

Happy with the whole process overall. Good explanation on the system & how it all operates for my particular home. All shown to me on computer,( which I wouldn't otherwise understand! Show additional information

Quality is worth the additional investment

As a retired Engineer I undertook a lot of investigative reading before hand to ensure that I could ask the correct questions and assess the value of the PV panels on offer. I had decided that my selection would be based upon monocrystalline PV cells with Micro Inverters that would permit future expansion of the system and the latter inclusion of storage batteries when they became more cost effective and would permit auto change over to storage should mains supply fail. I then reviewed the quality of panels and roof supporting attachments as a unique system with regards to structural strength, longevity of components, warranty and service levels. From this I identified a limited number of preferred suppliers and used the opportunity to then observe systems being installed so I could directly compare quality and installation of systems. My final selection reduced to two possibilities who were very close but once I adjusted for supporting local / Australian manufacture Tindo was selected. The installation was of the highest quality and they even had the patience to put up with me hovering around them asking questions and closely observing what they were doing, even the wife was impressed with their professionalism and work ethic. The system has now been working for some 6 months with an excellent online monitoring from MyEnlighten the Enphase micro inverter manufacture. Each panel is identified for output and download into a spreadsheet. A clear day produces 82% overall efficiency which the expected result. I am very pleased with the total process which will pay for itself within the next 3 years. Show additional information

Great Polite and Tidy Installer

During the Quote process everything was explained clearly. Taken a tour through the factory where the panels are made and assembled very informative tour. This took place before signing contract. A few extras which I knew nothing about were explained and I agreed to adding to quote. Price is higher than those seen on TV but I'm glad I paid the extra and got my panels from Tindo. Australian made and local company, After Sale service is faultless they monitor panel performance and contact you if panel performance drops. Tindo keep in contact with purchasers. To be honest the best $$$$ i have spent. When you buy Tindo panels you also get great caring after sales service. IF you want a Top Quality Product go to Tindo. When fitted workers were very polite, answered any questions, very tidy looking installation, and all packaging was removed. Installed all 18 panels by lunch time. Show additional information

Love my Tindo Panels

Tindo did not try to over sell their product. They gave me the facts and tried to be as competitive as possible with their price, and managed to come within a few hundred of the cheaper competitors, but with better warranty and quality. I have had my panels since January 2019 and love my panels, I have had great service from Tindo in the time I have had them. Show additional information
It is so refreshing to communicate with a company that is local, supports Australian workers, assembles the panels locally, uses a good team of installers and provides friendly and helpful after sales service and guarantees their product for decades. If anything goes wrong with my new solar system, I feel I am in good hands for a satisfactory resolution. Show additional information
First account was in credit. Winter will be the real test. We would not hesitate to recommend Tindo Solar to any prospective buyer. We have been impressed with after sales follow up and we are also impressed with the monitoring system which informs us of the equipment’s performance. Show additional information

I was most impressed with all the people who came here and explained there services and gave us a quote. We just had the impression that Tindo although dearer would be easier to deal with being an all local company Show additional information

The best thing we ever purchased our electricity bill went from $600+ down to $180 per quarter if you haven't got the best solar panels from Tindo solar your flaming mad South Australian owned at Mawson Lakes from start to finish the whole experience was fantastic every one involved from the salesman Daryl to Jarrod in the office the guys who installed the system all professional on time every thing left neat and tidy if you don't get a Tindo solar system Show additional information
Installer did not know how to connect it to the internet Show additional information
System works perfectly, installation was smooth and the sales team was super nice and caring.
After sales experience was great with the monitoring system and the customer service guys making sure i was happy with the product.

I am absolutely disgusted with the after sales service from Tindo. We have a big system which is underperforming. Over half a dozen microinverters have failed, which they refuse to replace unless we pay for the electrician to do so. No monitoring system now as enecsys went into administration. Save yourself money & heartache & go with a different company. We bought our system in the first year they were open, to support the aussie market. Big mistake. Absolute garbage, esp when I'm still getting electricity bills over $1000. Taking it to consumer affairs. Show additional information
I bought from Tindo because it is a south Australian company and had heard it's service was very good. This has proved to be the case I am very happy with the system so far and intend to extend it to a battery. Show additional information
From our first visit to Tindo Solar, throughout the purchase and installation, plus follow up communications with Tindo we have had nothing but first rate experiences with them. We are very happy with the performance of our solar system which was purchased in June, and would very definitely recommend both their product and their personnel. We really appreciated the service we have received, and the fact that Tindo follow up to make sure everything is continuing to work as expected is another plus for them. Show additional information
They were very helpful and quick on getting the job done Show additional information
Tindo have been fantastic from start to finish. People need to look at the 'whole' picture when buying a system & research the price against:
1. Quality (of system & customer service)
2. Longevity of system
3. Performance (investigate this! Tindo OUT PERFORMS other products. The others use an advertising budget so people are familiar with the name)
4. Guarantee (how long will they stand behind their product?)
5. Future/Deals (Tindo offers GREAT deals, plus I can add to my system eg Battery/extra panels without any hassle)
6. Monitoring Service

Not only am I getting the BEST possible product/service for my money, I am supporting Australian made & can go to the factory to talk with the people!

I actually thought Tindo was one of your 3 quotes....
Very happy with the 5kw premium system with lifetime solar analytics subscription. There were cheaper systems but I am very confident in Tindo's quality. Also I found your website very useful to cut through the minefield of information so thanks Finn and thanks Vince and the Tindo team.

From the get go the sales person explained everything to me. We then needed to modify placement on roof which wasn't an issue at all.
The installers were fantastic and did a professional job in a timely manner. A local SA company producing quality solar panels for Australian conditions, what more could you ask for. Would not hesitate on recommending Tindo Solar to anyone contemplating the installation of a solar system.

Hi Finn; I'm unable to comment on the system as it's not going to be installed until later this month.
I opted for the Tindo 275W panels (20 of) which should give us 5.5kW. Chose them because as you know, they're made in SA, and I didn't reckon a tier 1 panel made overseas would be any better.

We went with Tindo Solar. We also got quotes outside the ones you referred. We went with Tindo as they assemble their panels here in SA and are owned by a long term business Cool or Cosy. Also supporting SA and 80 kms away if anything goes wrong. We bought 2 systems being 3.32kW for our home and our rental. One has been switched on and the performance so far is producing excellent results. The panels on roofs are near to north and start producing @ 8am to 7pm on a clear day at 26 degrees on the 8/11/17. Max production has been 24.5. This is way above prediction for November. Roof is prime direction.
Panels are Karra 275 with x1 Solax inverter with extended warranty. Systems were a little dearer and installation was a smooth process. All other quotes were good but Cool or Cosy have the longest business years.

Tindo Solar have been exemplary in providing warranty support of our solar system, in particular replacing faulty SolarBridge micro-inverters. In addition, when SunPower unexpectedly and disappointingly shut down the SolarBridge Power Portal in March 2018 preventing online monitoring of panel performance, Tindo Solar provided outstanding support with a solution; specifically installing a Solar Analytics module which allows both online monitoring of panel performance and real-time power consumption on multiple circuits. Overall I have no hesitation in recommending Tindo Solar for the high quality of their locally manufactured solar panels and their responsive customer support. Show additional information
Two of the suppliers you suggested contacted me but only one actually sent a quote. There was no follow up when I didn't contact them after the quote. They really didn't seem interested in my business. Show additional information

The system was installed less than two weeks from the quote and they also organize the meter from SA Power Networks which was installed less than two weeks later. Very happy with the system as it actually can generate higher than specified size. Show additional information
