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.

Fantastic product and service

published

From the first call I made to Hello Solar, everything has been fantastic. Everything they said they would do, was done - and to the highest level. Even when 'dummy me' rang to find out why the normal green light wasn't lighting up at night! Two of the helpful staff (Ahsan and Helen) were in touch straight away. If you are looking for a stress free solar experience, then Hello Solar should be on the top of your list.

Hundreds of savings!

The process with Hello solar has been great from start to finish but I waited for my first electricity bill to confirm my impressions. My second system from this company and it's been working so good. It's been amazing seeing savings on the bill especially now that we are working from home. Highly recomend to anyone looking for a good company to get solar panels from

Exactly as promised

Hello solar ladies in the office are exceptionally courteous and installers are more than professional. They guided me through the process simply and now I am not hesitating to refer them to all my friends and family. System is saving me lots of money and I'm so happy to have received everything so painlessly! Recommend!

Botched solar connection

published

Buyer beware! After the system had been installed and HS got their money there was no follow up inspection from them. After receiving no solar feed in tariff on my bill from my energy supplier, they organised Ausgrid to do a meter inspection. It was discovered that the inverter was connected to the wrong side of my meter. Ausgrid pointed the finger at the solar installer. They took photos of the connections and wiring. HelloSolar have denied any wrong doing. Buyer be very aware!

Great Company to deal with.

The installers were very professional, they checked our whole tiled roof and replaced any broken tiles. My husband was an electrician by trade, he was very impressed with the quality and service. Our power bill has dropped dramatically, would definitely recommend Hello Solar. Outstanding service.

Would never recommend

published

The whole process from sign up to installation was nothing short of a nightmare. Only thing that was reasonable was the price. In the end I would not speak to any of this companies staff except the manager who after I explain the nightmare to actually could not apologise enough. My advice run and don’t look back... they can talk the talk but do not walk the walk. Sorry but you asked me for my feedback

Cheap. Knowledge could have been better

published

The Customer service person wasn’t the best listener and not overly helpful in resolution. Installation day they diverted from agreed panel layout from what I signed. One trade person lied about what they were doing. The installer on roof seemed confident the panels were in the right spot...Very reasonably priced. Will see what output they provide. So pleased to have them finally installed.

Trust Worthy Company Hello Solar

published

We believe that word of mouth is the best recommendation you can get.
And that was our experience with HELLO SOLAR.
From start to finish, the communication was excellent, from getting a quote to the
Installation etc ,as we are dinosaurs with Computers the help we received was
Amazing, a staff member Cassie even visited our home to help us out nothing
Was too much trouble.
Everyone was very professional and came when they said they would,from the
Safety rail installer's ,to the installation of the Solar Panels and the final check
From the Electrical Engineer from the power company.
The transmission was quick and smooth. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

Customer service is excellent once you sign up but lackluster after you sign up.

published

Everything was easy to to set up when I first made the enquirer. I was contacted on the same day.
After being charged for my deposit, there was little reply to my emails.
We kept getting delayed by the installer chosen and broken roof tiles were left all over our lawn.
We wasted numerous days staying home to wait for them.
Installation for the meter was for the garage but we weren’t given a choice as to where we had wanted to place it even though we were home.

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.
