Solar and Tesla Powerwall Installation
Customer Service

Very helpful, friendly, local and knowledgeable family business. Installation was completed with no issues and our property was left clean and tidy. Cost was the best of all the quotes I got but would have chosen Sussex Solar for all the other reason above, cost was an extra bonus. Had a slight issue with Tesla app which was resolved very quickly by Andy. Completely satisfied with the whole experience and now enjoying helping the planet and running my electric vehicle for free.

We were very pleased indeed with the annual service which was carried out as agreed in a very competent and efficient manner. It was done to the agreed schedule and all communications both before and during the service were clear and very helpful. I feel our system is in good hands and would thoroughly recommend Sussex Solar, as indeed I have.

We're now "off grid" for much of the year! I'm very pleased by Sussex Solar's installation of in-roof solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall. Along with our Tesla cars, this means that we're off grid for electricity and transport for much of the year. All works very well, and being able to see the power flow through the panels, the house and the battery is the icing on the cake.

They were fair with their estimate, discussed options for replacement parts, answered my queries but didn't remove their boots or wear protectors in the house.

The trader replied (on 26/06/2019)
Dear Peter, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad you found our service to be transparent and that you were consulted on options, but I am very sorry to hear that shoe protection was not used in your property. I am in the process of investigating why this happened and can assure you this is highly unusual. We go out of our way to respect and protect our customer's property and insist our technicians either remove their shoes or, if multiple trips to the van are required, they wear shoe protectors or lay carpet runners. The only occasion we may struggle to do this is on a wooden or slippery staircase where runners would be dangerous. Please accept our sincere apologies and I will contact you once I have spoken to our team. Regards, Amanda
Helpful advice
I had a number of questions which Sussex solar have been happy to assist with and provided some really useful advice on heat pumps. Knowledgeable and helpful without the sales push. Pleasure speaking with them.

Sussex Solar installed a Solar Thermal Hot water system for us. The team were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The work was carried out as unobtrusively as possible, they tided up after themselves and we received clear and concise documentation. We would recommend this company.

PV/Tesla Powerwall fitted by Sussex Solar

We chose Sussex Solar because it was a local company; not knowing all the technical demands of a PV/Powerwall system we found ourselves dependent on the advice and expertise of Andy and Amanda Baxter and their team. It took some negotiation and a number of estimates before we were all happy with the final proposal and costings. The panels were fitted in early January and the Tesla Powerwall in early April – all the work was carried out effectively and efficiently by Andy and his team and the final system came in on budget. Sussex Solar offer a personal and bespoke service; emails were replied to quickly, phone calls returned and countless questions were answered – every effort was made to meet our requirements and our needs; we were treated as valued customers from the outset. Sometimes the administrative details went a little awry but we would have no hesitation in recommending this company. We are very pleased with our system and we know that if we have any sort of problem we can contact Andy or Amanda and the issue will be tackled quickly and effectively.

Amanda, Andrew and their team provided excellent service during a very busy time for solar panel installations, with a FIT deadline looming. From the initial visit, through installation and to providing the comprehensive paperwork afterwards I was very pleased with the honest advice and professional service. The installation of 12 panels, Solar iBoost for water heating and associated system went according to plan and budget. All completed in 2 days. I would happily recommend Sussex Solar based on my experience.

Very Impressive Company

After telephoning several suppliers about the fact that my solar panels were only supplying half the usual amount of electricity - and mainly getting responses for very expensive solutions - I came across Sussex Solar, who from the start provided a very professional and honest approach to the problem i.e.conduct a proper service and then review. The service concluded that a new inverter was needed but that the panels were fine. Within a week Andy and his team had returned to fit the new inverters, provided me with a great bit of software so that I can monitor power production remotely and given me a fresh new and productive start. The key advantages of choosing Andy and his team are that, unusually for this business, he is always on the customers side. There is no hard sell and no doubt that he is giving you the best and most cost effective solution. Having talked to Andy about batteries and new/future technologies, I am also convinced that he goes out of his way to match their features with customer needs. So, in conclusion, the service I received from Sussex Solar was second to none and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any renewable energy needs. John Dunmall Hayling Island

We are becoming increasingly impressed with the capabilities of the system which you installed in October of last year. Throughout the whole of the darkest months, not a day went by when we did not get some power off the roof, the lowest being just 0.17 Kwh on the 16th January. It was hardly to wondered at that during these darker days we did not accumulate very much stored power in the Powerwall, although I don’t suppose that there were more than a handful of occasions when there was nothing in it. However since the days have started to lengthen we have noticed a very real change in the behavior of the system with every day showing overall (cloud cover permitting) a net gain of power output over the last. This last fortnight, however, has been a revelation with Powerwall attaining full charge for the first time on the 11th Feb, and barely a day since when it has fully discharged. But yesterday was a real landmark, not only did the array fully charge the Powerwall but for three hours in the afternoon we exported to grid for the first time since the battery was connected, and we generated 13.10 Kwh, the highest yet, with the Sun hardly at a high point in the sky. The four panels on the SSE facing aspect of the extension start putting out power by about 9:00 am in good weather and while the main heft is later in the day, from the 10 panels mounted on SW aspect. That start in the morning is enough to stop drawing on the battery at least and put it into standby. So without seeming to gush about this, we are very pleased with this, especially since we had advice some time ago that our house was not suitable for a Solar array, and would be happy to be a referee for any intending customers in the future. All in all we are delighted, although I am glad that in the end we were initially put off e during which time storage became possible and affordable, because without doubt that is a game changer. We foresee days at a stretch now, when we are off the grid altogether for our domestic power. Very best wishes,
Mr P, Haywards Heath.25/02/2019
