We subscribe to RECC – The Renewable Energy Consumer Code – which gives “information, confidence and reassurance to anyone wishing to buy or lease a micro heat or power generation unit for their home.”

Our installation team is well trained, with a personal and friendly approach. Good communication is key to our customer satisfaction; our testimonials for confirmation.

I had quotes for our PV system from 10+ companies and Solarkinetics stood out head and shoulders above the competition. Everything from first contact through the estimate to instillation and commissioning of the system could not have been a better experience. Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and efficient. They were super responsive to all our questions and requests. Talked us through all the options for a system best suited for our needs. They went above and beyond in making sure that everything was right even to undertaking a G99 application with our distributor and negotiating an increase in our maximum allowed installation under a G98. The installation and commissioning of the system was quick and efficient even down to the scaffolding sub-contractor. Brilliant. The only down side was that they are so busy that we had to wait 4 months for them to be able to install our system - but well worth the wait! Thank you Jaine and Gordon

Solarkinetics is a family business so you know that if anything goes wrong it’s their reparation on the line. After reading the reviews on Which, we phoned Jaine to see if we could arrange a survey. Gordon and his son arrived on time which is always a good sign. Gordon believes in what he does (he is not a salesman on commission) so there is no over-promising he tells what will work and what will not. A few days later the quote arrived, it was a little bit more expensive than some of the other’s (but sometime you only get what you pay for) So, we decided to accept the Solarkinetics quote. I am so glad we did. Scaffolding arrived on the Monday ready for the start of the insulation on the Thursday. The insulation team arrived on time (Gordon his son and one other) The whole team were very professional, efficient, clean and tidy. The Instillation and commissioning were fast with minimum disruption and they managed the project completely. Soon after completion, they posted us a well-presented owner's manual and documentation, including guarantees, MSC certificate and letter from Western Power Distribution to enable us to apply for the SEG tariff from our supplier. Gordon and his son, not forgetting wife Jaine and Bethany, are a very impressive team, everything from initial survey to installation and paperwork was done with the same friendly and knowledgeable efficiency that gives me no hesitation in highly recommending them to others. Outstanding, thank you all.

We chose Solarkinetics to install solar PV on our garage as they were the most professional and the cheapest. The installation was well coordinated and the aftercare to iron out a couple of wrinkles was excellent.

Solarkinetics installed our PV system on time and with minimal fuss or disruption. They were willing to answer all our questions and explain the pros and cons of different configurations and possibilities. All together a very efficient and friendly service leaving behind a first class installation using the best available technology. We would definitely recommend them to anyone wishing to install a PV system.

Solar panels installation

Solarkinetics is a family business. Gordon does the initial survey and (with his son) the installation, and Jaine does all the admin and communications. They provided two alternative and comprehensive quotes, for different levels of generation. Panels were REC and the inverter was SolarEdge. Pricing was very competitive. They require 25% payment in advance and the remainder on completion. Price was as per quote. The installation was very efficient. There was a good liaison with their scaffolder. Installing the panels and the inverter took two days and involved no mess or noise. Scaffolding was in place a couple of days on either side of the installation. The only slight reservation I had was that they did not warn me in advance that I would need a spare ethernet socket on my wifi router to connect the inverter to the internet. Fortunately, I did. Soon after completion, they posted us a well-presented owner's manual and documentation, including guarantees, MSC certificate and letter from Western Power Distribution to enable us to apply for the SEG tariff from our supplier. At the time of writing this review (March 2021) the system has been working for a week but appears to be producing electricity at a level that was projected. Solarkinetics responded quickly to any queries, mainly by email. All in all a very pleasant experience from start to finish.

They carried out a thorough site survey and produced a very detailed quotation. The installation was carried out very promptly (considering problems caused by Brexit and COVID19). Communication with them was very easy. The installation was carried out efficiently and tidily. We would highly recommend them.

Solarkinetics recently installed solar panels for us. They took care of all the necessary paperwork prior to commencement of the work. The whole team were very professional, efficient, clean and tidy. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

We were very happy with our Solar Kinetics experience. We also took quotes from a couple of other installers and there was a definite whiff of “promise anything to get the sale”. Not so with Solar Kinetics. We felt that we were being told the truth, not promised more than could be delivered, and our expectations were managed perfectly. They patiently and talked us out of a couple of ideas we’d picked up which would not actually work for us, and explained why, although other traders had not told us that they wouldn’t work. The office team were friendly and always replied to queries. The installation team were pleasant and polite, cleaned up after themselves and didn’t need babysitting. Our only hitches came from third party supply delays. We have been very happy with our installation since, and the results. We feel confident that we have ended up with the most efficient set up for our site and budget. Would recommend without reservation.

We saw that Solarkinetics had very good customer reviews, and we can see why. From the initial contact, to continuing support post-installation, we have been very impressed with Jaine (on the admin side) and Gordon (on the installation and technical support side). Gordon did a very thorough assessment of our needs, and was always very helpful in explaining the technical issues of which we had a sketchy knowledge. Because we had a Tesla car, we decided to go for a Tesla Powerwall as the battery system, and although Solarkinetics hadn`t fitted one before, as previously Tesla hadn`t permitted this, they did a great job in sorting everything out. We also increased the number of solar panels originally suggested, and Jaine sorted everything out with Western Power, making the process very straightforward for us. The installation was completely painless, with Solarkinetics sorting out the excellent scaffolders, and Gordon and his team did an incredibly neat job. We live in a barn conversion, so went for solar panels which are relatively inconspicuous, and we have been delighted with their appearance. So, we have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Solarkinetics to anyone who is considering installing solar panels, a very impressive company.
