Disappointing experience

published

They are very good at closing the deal however on day of installation I was sent the wrong inverter fir a single phase which put delays on installation plus the contractors did short, I have holes in the garage, leaks in our roof and the electrical work was poor which I needed to redo. I also had 1 contractor pee in the garden. I sent a message to the manager which I am still waiting to hear from.

SOLAR PANELS INSTALLATION PROCESS

published

From start to finish the process of organising solar panels with Hello Solar has been wonderful. I have really appreciated the communication from the team and the step by step process of what to expect. The guys who installed the panels were excellent, on time and very friendly. They also answered some questions I had. Extremely happy with everything and will be recommending Hello Solar to any one I know who may be interested in getting them installed.

I must say how very professional Hello Solar have been throughout the whole proceedure from start at qoute time to the completion at installation. Jesse went out of his way to assist us with many questions we had and he conducted himself in a very professional and helpful manner . He provided a qoute which we acepted only because we were impressed by his demeanor. Hello Solar have been very helpful all the way through right up to and including installation, the boys were so professional and well mannered they took care and there expertise stood out ,i couldn't speak highly enough of them . I am not one to write reviews but it was absolutely a pleasure dealing with this company, well done , regards Phill Cooper Paynesville vic

Hello Solar Team

published

The Team at Hello Solar were great to work with from communication, issue resolution and installation. The install was very tidy and the install team were very friendly. I was surprised they enquired on an outdoor power switch to operate their tools. Luckily we had one, the install was done with no internal access to the property. I imagined they would of had a generator or cordless power tools ? Needless to say it was a pleasure doing business with Hello Solar.

Prompt and professional

Saw ads. Rang obtained quote after comparing my elec usage. I was sent image of panels on roof and tech spec sheets. Made deal. Paid deposit. Installers arrived on time. The panels look neat and inverter installed. I was impressed. No broken promises. Delivered on their set timeframes. Small issue with placement of inverter was attended to next business day installers came back and moved a bit higher on wall. I feel very pleased and encouraged by the conduct of their staff and those of their business partners.

I recommend Hello Solar thanks to my experience. Working with HS was pleasure.

Excellent customer service

published

We started the process of getting solar panels through Hello Solar in mid June. We’ve never had solar panels installed before so we were a bit nervous about the process, but it was a very smooth with Hello Solar, we could not fault them. Their customer service and their prompt service delivery is excellent, and the placement of the panels on our house is very neat. Thank you!

Poor response to warranty claims

published

They performed well during the sale, unfortunately when my inverter failed under warranty they could not provide a replacement for at least 42 days. They kept on putting it back on to the manufacturer of the inverter even though Hello Solar were the supplier of the total package and the company I payed.
Would I use them again NO.

Excellent service and great product

published

From the beginning everything went smoothly. Installation crew worked non stop and had the system installed in 7 hours and very professionally. Then when I had trouble connecting to grid Hello Solar staff stepped in and liasoned with my provider to get it done. After that Alice guided me through to view my power generation online, not an easy task at my age. In other words help all the way from start to finish. The system is generating power even on these cold cloudy days.

Questions & Answers

Jeffrey C.

Jeffrey C.asked

If I am to purchase solar panels from Hello Solar, would I get the benefit of the Federal government's PV Small Technology Certificate (STC) Subsidy ? Would the price quoted by Hello solar be already reduced by that STC Subsidy ? I am from Queensland. How much would be the amount of the Subsidy if i am to purchase 20 solar panels from Hello Solar ?

Karen

Ok. Well I can only tell you about mine. Yes to subsidy. Price has subsidy subtracted. You cannot get them free. I tried. Usually about 6500 - 3500 subsidy and you pay 3000. Depends on your roof accessibility and shading to number of panels and installation price. My place has full sun and low set. I paid 3000 or 3200 maybe out of my own pocket. I think it was 3000 plus 200 for something else

My panels were installed by Hello Solar on 2 Feb 2020. NMI no. at the time was 43104733376. The wifi unit was also fitted to the inverter at the time. The smart meter was installed on the 5 March and the solar system was switched on to the grid. The indicator lights on the wifi unit do not light up. Please advice.

My inverter is a Kehua single phase which has a black module plugged in to the unit from underneath which is the wifi transmitter which my smart phone communicates with, then you need to down load the suitable app that is the 1st stage ,l have,t completed the process, because the inverter has the digital read out on the front.

How long have you as a customer had to wait to get refund from Hello Solar after job was cancelled because they could not install the panels ordered

That was not the problem. They installed the panels but we had to wait 6 months for the rebate because they messed up the paperwork.
