  • Fitting new Solar Array

    10Verified Review

    Steve and Paul at Solar Rise (ID 259465 ) have been fantastic from start to finish. They are honest, hard working, knowledgeable, considerate and reliable. What more could you ask for? Their prices are good and they work to budget and time. They fitted a whole new Solar PV array and inverter on my roof initially. They have been back to my house several times since fitting the main array to fit other items such as a My Energi Eddie to heat my hot water with my excess solar energy. Dont hesitate to contact them.

  • Fitted solar and battery system.

    10Verified Review

    Solar-Rise were great, they visited and surveyed the job, discussed all my questions and concerns. They arranged scaffolding and turned up on a bitterly cold February morning as planned and fitted the system within 3 days. They did the job without fuss, they were tidy, efficient and always happy to keep me in the loop with progress. It’s now a year on from the install and I’m still really happy with the job. Highly recommended as a good local crew rather than a faceless corporate.

  • Solar panel and battery installation

    10Verified Review

    Steve, Paul and Paul's son are a great team. Their communication is excellent, at every point we knew what was happening when, the workmanship and installation was professional and clean. We were lucky in that they had a slot come available at short notice, so we were slotted into their schedule. Then the solar panels arrived, the scaffolding was up and work was under way. Getting this kind of system (including 4kwh panels and 5kwh battery) installed is a financial commitment, so to have such a good service is great. Thanks guys.

    ID 259465 We would highly recommend Solar-Rise. Quality, value for money workmanship and service, and professional and knowledgeable company. We had our system installed over a year ago and had follow up from the company, and we are very happy with the solar system installation.

  • GSE In roof solar system

    10Verified Review

    10/10 from start to finish. Couldn't be happier with the end result from the in-roof system that I've had installed by Paul, Steve and their team. From initial conversations to spec the system, Paul was knowledgeable about the various options and gave a considerable amount of time to get it right including a couple of site visits before I committed to using Solar-rise. Fitting of the system went well and trouble free in freezing conditions which didn't make there life any easier. Already planning the next system and will definitely be using them for the next one Many thanks
