About

Solarkinetics Ltd is a Herefordshire based enterprise with over 15 years experience in the building industry. We have been installing Solar PV systems since 2010.

We use top quality products and are accredited as a Professional Installer by REC, whose panels we use on the majority of our installations. This allows us to offer our clients the benefit of an extra two years warranty over and above the standard 10 years offered by other installers.

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.

We are fully MCS accredited – this enables all our customers to benefit from the OFGEM “feed-in-tariff" scheme

I had quotes from a few solar companies and these were the last to do so. They were the most thorough, came out to look at the house rather than just a desktop exercise and even checked the shading. Helped to guide me through my options - e.g. advised against a NW roof being used. Helpful with options even at the weekend. They then came back with perhaps the most costly proposal and yet the most compelling. Panels I felt I could rely on with an excellent warranty as well as a package including a car charger and water heater. Cost was higher than I had planned to spend but the proposal made sense. They were happy to tweak it with me and change a few things. With no FIT the focus is on using what you generate so made more sense to put in the diverter/car charger than add more panels producing what I cannot use. Booked them in however then had to be put back a week, irritating but not the end of the world. They were out for a couple days and came back again for the diverter. Friendly, informative, did a tidy job. Had a tile slip off but they came back and sorted it, these things can happen.Communication wasn't as great after but I do have a habit of asking lots of questions! Part of it I felt is that solaredge (inverter brand) give too little info on their kit. They sent a pack out with the warranty and some basic instructions which is helpful. Overall I'm very happy with my set up. Still a few things I'm working through but with time and experience should be fine.

From first enquiry to system (Panels, inverter, EV car charger) commission everything was clearly communicated and went to plan. The subtleties of product selection were helpfully navigated from the family team. Now using our excess electricity to charge the car - good news! The piece of the jigsaw I had not considered up front was that it was handy Solar Kinetics used a retained local scaffold company who were there bang on time and cleared away promptly so minimised any inconvenience.

From start to finish the Solar Kinetics team were excellent. The initial survey, report and explanation were clear and not at all 'pushy'. Installation took place on the appointed dates and was done with great efficiency & minimal disruption. An excellent team which we would recommend.

Gordon and his small team did a great job! We are really pleased with how the solar panels look on the roof and the very high quality of Gordon's interior installation work. Thanks to everyone involved.

Solar Kinetics were professional in everything they did. From our initial contact, they were well-informed, technically astute, practical, polite and punctual. Technically, they were spot-on and showed innovation in their solution to our challenge. Their proposal was clear, easy to follow, and competitive. Everything they said they would do, they did. They coordinated everything on site, including the scaffolding sub-contractor, performed a risk assessment and kick-off meeting, and their documentation and administrative function matched their technical and practical capability. We were in the rare and pleasant position of our preferred contractor also being the most price-competitive. Happy days! We recommend them unreservedly.

Today Solarkinetics completed the installation of our Solar Panel system. When we first met Graham, he gave us confidence in his knowledge of all systems, and advised the best position for the panels, which would maximise the amount of energy produced. There scaffolders arrived, ensuring everything was ready, with no disruption. The following day, Graham and his installation team arrived, extremely impressed at the way they all worked. As we are going away tomorrow they all stayed late to make sure all the panels were fitted, thus enabling Graham to complete the process today. We would recommend Solarkinetics 100%, there professionalism, pricing and confidence they gave us was exceptional. They are an exceptional team.

Excellent solar instillation

Whilst undertaking a self build we needed a supplier to fit into our build schedule. Gordon from Solarkinetics was outstanding. He provided initial options and quotes, giving details for the different options. He attended site on schedule, liaising with our electrician and plumber. These visits were for initial instillation and for later connection and commissioning. Gordon is extremely knowledgeable about the systems and helps you through the whole set up process and continues to provide post commissioning. I had questions about the FiT application and he was able to quickly answer my questions. I would highly recommend this service.

The Sunny Disposition Team

Having researched solar panels in depth, I asked 3 companies to quote. Important to us was ROI, price, where kit was made and local back up and support. Gordon was very patient with my grilling him on various aspects and the only one of the three companies who did not diss the competition (a sales technique we abhor). Once selected, we booked Gordon and team for an early October install - all done in 4 days with minimum fuss and upheaval. The garden was left tidy after the scaffolding and all gutters were cleaned - even a small area of touch up external painting was done - something a bigger firm would no doubt have refused! Gordon and his team were ever courteous and professional and the paperwork for FiT was not overly complex to do - especially with guidance if asked for. An electrician by original trade, there was nothing to throw Gordon off in terms of cabling, routing etc and a cunning little app on my phone tells me how many KWh we are producing each day - quite obsessional really! Jaine in the office answered emails promptly and all paperwork was easy to follow. A good small local team who I would not hesitate to recommend if you want solar panels with a sunny smile!

SolarKinetics have restored my faith in the renewables industry. I really cannot fault the service that they provided, they were a real pleasure to deal with and delivered all as promised, on time at a fair price and with no hidden extras. I would happily recommend with no reservations whatsoever. Keith Roberts
