  • Solar Panel and Battery Installation

    10Verified Review

    I had another company undertake a solar panel/battery installation that was never completed as they ceased trading. Solar Rise surveyed what had been done, did a reinstall /carried out remedial works and certified the installation. They conducted themselves in a professional manner and I am very grateful to them for resolving this state of affairs. I wholeheartedly recommend Solar-Rise. I only wish l gone to them in the first place.

  • Solar panel installation

    9.25Verified Review

    We wanted to install solar panels but were concerned about finding a reliable cost-effective solution given the hype surrounding the technology. We cannot recommend Soar-rise highly enough. They started with a detailed informed brief and were responsive to questions and concerns. They provided a detailed reasonable quote with options. They went on to provide a speedy installation with a high level of craftsmanship. They were concerned to make sure we were happy with the result and were quick to sort out small teething problems. They were polite and friendly. It helped that they were local to

  • Installation of Solar Panels and Battery


    Paul, Steve, Ed and Ryan did an excellent job. From the original visit when they advised us on a system to fit our requirements, then submitting a very detailed (and fair) estimate, to their several visits to install the 15 solar panels, battery and Eddi they have been most professional. They explained the process at each stage, did an excellent job in installing everything (working well around builders who were here at the same time) in a clean, tidy manner and then arranged for the relevant Certificates and paperwork to be quickly sent. We highly recommend!!

  • 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.
