Excelent service from start to finish!!

published

We have had solar Panels installed ten years ago, by a company that has now gone out of business. On the seventh phone requesting a service, Solar Service Group agreed to come out and do it. Al the others were only interested in installing panels. The two young guys who came out explained what they were going to do, when finished confirmed all had been done. Explained how we could turn the system back on after a blackout. On time, very pleasant and even answered a question on why we did not have additional panels
Would definitely recommend the company every time!!

The Alpha Ess 2.9 has changed our understanding of our power usage

published

We had an Alpha Ess 2.9 installed in January 2019 & by monitoring the app over the course of 12 months we have been able to add additional modules & build a solar storage system to accommodate the specific requirements of our household. No more or less storage than we require!

Battery Expansion Installation

published

Initially the Hive battery installation had an issue and I was not consulted to find a solution before the installation.
The expansion unit was not properly mounted against the wall beneath the main unit.
SSG has offered to correct the installation at no cost. It will require the dismounting of the unit while the bricks that stick out at floor level are cut back, then remounting. I would have preferred that the installation have been postponed until the wall could be adjusted.

Follow up annual service done professionally - impressed

published

The technicians arrived and fixed some minor issues I had and cleaned the panels. The system is now running better than ever. The technicians showed what they had done and provided some tips to monitor the panel performance. Most impressed.
Only issue was it took nearly 6 weeks for the technicians to arrive after booking the service

Very happy with the solar batteries and their performance

published

I recently had a Hive 5.0kw battery solar system installed to increase my independence from the grid and use the 5kw solar panel system more efficiently. The system has worked well for the past month and my use of the grid insignificant. The installation was undertaken promptly by a professional who located the system next to my inverter and answered all my questions and more regarding solar battery systems and how the Hive system could be easily expanded if I required greater storage - electric powered cars etc. More than happy to recommend Solar Service Group.

Good Product .. Well Installed .. Great Outcome

published

The pre-install was good .. everything was explained and my questions were answered promptly. The installation presented problems to the team that could not have been anticipated but they worked hard to overcome them on a very hot day. The result is a very neat install in our garage. We've not issues with the company at all. We had a suggestion for an improvement (to overcome one of the installation issues) that we passed on and it was well received.

Great Pre-Install Customer Service. Very very BAD after installation Customer Servicce.

published

The sales process and installation booking and installation all went well. Since installation have had an issue with my coffee machine and microwave turning off for no reason. Also my standing lamp comes on at the same time. Also since installation found that my Ethernet cable was cut by the installer when drilling holes for the battery.
I have rang Solar Services Group twice and left messages, with their call centre. Can't actually speak with anyone from the company direct. Also submitted a Technical support request on their website. Have hear nothing from them despite both messages with the call centre being marked as URGENT.

Solar battery surprise

published

The installation was smooth and efficient with no interruptions to my day to day activities. It was amazingly quick. The installer took time to explain the workings of the battery and answer my questions. The software provided is easy to use. I would thoroughly recommend Solar Service Group.

Questions & Answers

IAN H

IAN Hasked

How big are these batteries? Where are the located on the property? How many batteries are needed for any decent result? What do they cost?

2 answers
Bindi V
Bindi V

Battery size depends on the battery you buy, mine is approx 400mm H x 200mm W x 20mm Wide. How many batteries depends on how many panels you have and how much power you want to store. the one I got allows me to add more panels, but the panels I have are capable of filling the battery. I found in summer the battery is still half charged in the morning from the day before. In winter, I only had to draw off the grid after continuous days of rainy black clouds, my electric bill is a quarter of what it use to be. My battery is attached to the houses outside wall and is hidden down the side of the back of the house, out of the way. somewhere were none of my guest ever go or even see. Cost will also come down to the model you purchase.

Hi Ian, thanks for your question.

Batteries will vary in size depending on various household factors such as the size of the rooftop panel system, amount of solar production, household consumption and other installation factors. As a result, different households can experience benefits from a wide variety of battery sizes as long as they are able to store enough energy to be used throughout the evening, allowing you to draw less energy from the grid.

We have sent you a private message to discuss options and pricing, if you would like to get in touch with us in the meantime feel free to contact us at hello(at)solarservicegroup.com.au.
