Installation of Solar PV System and SolarEdge Smart Hot Water
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Following a few months of research to try to understand solar PV, SolarKinetics were chosen to install our very first domestic solar PV system. We wanted a supplier that was an established and experienced installer and being reasonably local was perfect. They provided a first quote/plan based on exploratory discussions and then promptly responded to provide updates as the plan crystallised. The field visit proved to be really helpful to better understand our needs, confirm our plan and led to the addition of installing a smart hot water diverter. From quote to completion, the SolarKinetics team were courteous, helpful, and the installation was completed to agreed schedule and expected standard. We have complete confidence that we can call upon SolarKinetics for additional information and help and indeed if we have a new project.

We have had a good experience in using Solarkinetics Ltd from the first point of contact, through a survey visit and then onto the quotation and the installation of our solar panels. Each member of the Team was clearly knowledgeable, was careful of our property and was thoughtful in undertaking the work. I was interested in having a battery also, but the person undertaking the survey and preparing the quote suggested that I bide my time and use my EVs as storage in the first place. This is working out well; I was grateful for the cost-saving advice.

From the outset, Solar Kinetics proved themselves to be a most professional and efficient service. Our initial telephone conversations with Jaine encouraged us to arrange a site meeting with Gordon who directed us through the appropriate choice of extra solar panels and storage battery suitable for our new build house. The construction team worked cheerfully and efficiently and we are delighted with the finished product. Not forgetting the back up administrative efficiency of Carol, Solar Kinetics are well deserving of their excellent reviews.

Solar Battery Install, Replacement Hybrid Inverter, Relocation of FIT Meter and Inverter

We contacted Solarkinetics Ltd after another supplier for our project went into administration. It was a very stressful time for us, and from start to finish our experience with this organisation was excellent. My initial call was picked up by Jaine who listened to our requirements, immediately put my mind at ease and booked a site visit in for the following week. Gordon carried out the site visit. He assessed our current installation, offered options for a solar battery, hybrid inverter and meter. (We already had solar panels and part of our project requirement was to replace our old inverter and meter and relocate it from the centre of our home to an outbuilding, which didn't present a problem to them.) A competitive quotation arrived a few days later. Upon giving the go ahead, we were given a project start date. We also received reminder e-mails for our installation which was great. The electricians and installation Team, headed up by Fin were a pleasure to have on site. They were polite, professional, tidy in their work, extremely competent and efficient with our installation. Carol liaised with us on the administration and accounts side of the project and once again all communications were timely and efficient. Their standard of workmanship was second to none and we have no hesitation in recommending them. It was such a refreshing experience from start to finish in this modern world. Thank you Team Solarkinetics Ltd

REPLACEMENT OF FAULTY SOLAR PANEL INVERTER

I have had a 3kw solar system on my home for 13 years and sadly have experienced failures of the SMA inverter on many occasions. Each time I have to get a specialist to install the replacement inverter which I get under warranty from SMA. The original installer will no longer support me in replacing the inverter so I had to find another company to help. I made contact with Solarkinetics when I had the latest failure. I have never used their services before but without hesitation they willing offered to help.The service I got has been first class considering the effort they had to put in to getting the replacement ,and putting up with me chasing them every day to get the inverter from SMA and installed for what can only be described as a very low value job. I only wish I had known about this company before and I would have had the original installation from them in the beginning. I can't sing their praises enough, a great company and first class support. They come to my home installed the inverter, gave me some very helpful advise on my system and left everything in tip top condition. Thank you for a great service Solarkinetics.

Professional and great value for money
Having long wanted to get solar panels I was struggling to get a sensible quote, then I found Solarkinetics and everything felt right. Rather than push a fixed solution Gordon and the team listened and engaged, developing a proposal that we all felt comfortable with. The quote was surprisingly reasonable and we gave the go ahead straight away. The installation was equally professional and the whole team worked as one. The end result is great and I'm looking forward to the summer! I don't normally do reviews but I wanted to leave this one as they were so good. Thank you!

Gordon, Jaine, Carol and the whole team at Solar Kinetics were responsive and pro-active in responding to my enquiry and subsequent order for a 3.7kw solar PV installation, and acted professionally throughout, with excellent and clear communication. I am a business owner myself, so I know how hard this is to achieve. I am geniuinely greatful to have found a company and people who live up to my expectations - it seems a rare quality in these times. I will definitely use SolarKinetics again for future projects!

We recently had a Solar and Battery installation at our house from Solarkinetics in Hereford. All we can say is positive from getting the quotation to the finish of the job! A family business who genuinely care about their workmanship and customer relations. From erecting the scaffolding to fitting the panels and sorting the electrics, all involved were brilliant and that includes the staff back in the office as well! 5 star service.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. 👏👏👏👏👏

We decided to use Solarkinetics for three very good reasons. They were a local family business They had very good reviews Their quote was actually the cheapest (although that alone was not the deciding factor) Their communications were excellent. We had plenty of questions which they patiently and helpfully handled. The actual installation process was seemlessly organised with scaffolding erected in the morning followed by rails in the afternoon. High winds delayed the panels until the next day but the whole operation was completed within the 2 days we’d been told to expect. The paperwork and and a couple of minor queries from us were promptly followed up and the whole system has been churning out electricity ever since. The scaffolding was removed in a timely manner and the whole place left neat and clean. The app to monitor the system is simple and effective. Totally happy to recommend this company as professional, helpful and reliable.

Solarkinetics installed a 4.45 kWp Solar Photovoltaic Microgenerator system at my home. I have 11 big panels, an inverter and a small battery. Originally I wasn't planning on having a battery but it was absolutely the right thing to do and I'm glad I agreed to their suggestion. They are a friendly family company and I felt confident in their expertise. The work went smoothly with the minimum of disruption. I can wholeheartedly recommend them.
