Vic Solar Absolute Scammers..

published

We were sold a very expensive top tier system with the promise of never receiving a bill if we continue using electricity as we were....We still get a bill very close to what it was before the installation and I get the added joy of paying back a 20k loan for the system with no battery backup...Scam company...

Simply put the customer service is pretty horrific. I've emailed multiple times I've sent emails with followup calls- I'm currently two phone calls in and I'm just told we will be called back - I'M STILL WAITING for a week!

We thought everything was fine...

published

We went through the process from door to door salesman, to installation and saving on bill all was OK.
Not much communication through the process. Output is no where near whats expected for our size system but good enough to see savings.
Then we got a leaky roof. Contacted a plumber who told us its improperly installed Solar Mounts and to contact solar company.
2 1/2 months latter, lots of phone calls and emails and we still haven't received a reply.

disgusting after sales service

published

installation fine but only ever received a $10 rebate every quarter as there is too much shade on my panels
the salesman did a number on me but nothing in writing - told I would get a wonderful rebate of at least half my current bills

now i find I have an expensive decoration on my rood with no comeback at a company who very cleverly plays the 'buyer beware' tune to their benefit

not good busines shame on you !!!!

Very good to deal with

published

Very good higher end company to deal with I believe. No problems with install etc. There was a problem with trees that they worked around nicely for me.

Total Disgrace and Very Disappointing.

published

The Sales guy was a lair what we were told didn't happen, also he wouldn,t answer the phone calls we made to him, or either reply to text messages we sent him. The installers done damaged to our property in which Vic Solar decline to fix and left rubbish behind in which we had to clean up (lots of). Once again the installers told us a different layout of how the installation was going to be installed, and that the solar wouldn't be connected for at least 2-3 weeks. Tried to ring the office many of times but no one would answer. The WiFi connection setup to app doesn't work, says "No device found". We DON'T recommend Vic Solar to any one we are totally disappointed and disgraced with this company.

Monumental and cataclysmic disaster!!!

published

We had panels installed 2 years ago. Door to door salesman offered us repayment plan and assured us that the costs would be offset by the savings.
We have so far made payments of $4,600.00 plus electricity costs of $1,600.00 and have received, wait for it.a tad over $300.00 in return from the feed in tariff.
My family have been royally scammed and have nothing but regret.
Consumer Affairs suggested we refer matter to VCAT.
Beyond angry!!!!

Very impressed

Great Solid Product

published

Very hassle free installation. Professional, I have every reason to recommend Vic Solar. My power bill has dropped very close to the amount we pay in repayments. One thing to remember is that on installations that don't have battery you need to look at the hours a typical day will start producing power and stop using the power graph. ( when the sun comes up in the morning and goes down at night) and make sure you minimise power usage outside those hours. (i.e. run your dishwasher and washing machine and heating/cooling etc when it is producing power) otherwise you are not using the solar to its best advantage.

Questions & Answers

Chrissy

Chrissyasked

After some basic research I'm concerned about the cost of installing with Vicsolar. Is $16,000 for a 4kw system with a 5kw inverter a bit inflated?

Hi Chrissy, I had installed maybe 6 months ago, I know its been long winter but cannot see result yet. They are very company to deal with, on time and follow up. just I didn't have a bill when they followed up so they said will call again. Basically there is cheaper but they are good to deal with.

That is extremely over priced, you can get more power for 5,000 - 6,000 less the new Victorian rebate of $2,225

We just signed up. The guy told us we only pay our fortnightly payment for tbe panels and no more paying our electricity payment plan weekly is this true?

Paula, I'm sorry I can't help you with this as I did mot have a payment option. I had to pay for the panels up front. I am still paying electricity bills but not as much as I was paying before I had the panels. The only thing I can say is to get everything they say in writing before you agree so that you have a fall back option.
Hope this helps

I can't assist here, as I bought the house with solar system already installed. What can be learned from my experience is a) solar power can break down like any other power system, and b) I was impressed by VicSolar and their quick response to replace the broken system. I would advise anyone thinking solar to think hard about it. How many years before you recover your initial expense? Someone like me in their 70s would be silly to invest in this. Don't think because you've got panels on your roof, you'll be free from power blackouts. It doesn't work that way.

Hi Paula, I also cannot answer this question as we purchased the panels outright. Like Doug I have found them very helpful and responsive to questions so I would recommend we give them a call.

Is the excessive power produced in the day can be stored and use in the night?
