Have your solar system installed with no upfront cost. If you’re a homeowner, you may be eligible to pay for your solar installation via your rates with a loan from the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.

How does this work?

The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council has a ‘Sustainable Homes Program,’ which provides loans to ratepayers to install solar in their home. The savings on your power bill should almost match what you’re repaying the council back each month.

The Solar Process

Solar panels harness the sun’s free energy and reduce your power bills! The upkeep costs are minimal too. Unlike other renewable energy options with moving parts that tend to break (think turbines needed for wind or hydropower), a static solar system is low maintenance.

Even better, solar batteries automatically kick in during a power cut to instantly restore energy, reduce your down time and give independence from the national grid.
We tailor-design your solar system specific to your energy requirements. You can purchase as many solar panels as you need and add to it later if you wish. Solar panels will also… reduce your carbon footprint with a completely renewable source of energy and cater for areas with lower sunshine hours.

It is important to most that you are adding value to your home, which you are! But you are also attaining at least a 10% return on your investment.
