Residential new builds

If you’re building a new home, we have a range of new build packages available to suit your needs and reduce your overheads.

We know that building can be expensive, so we’ve created solutions to suit everyone’s budget. For all new builds, we’d need to view your house plans to confirm our recommendations and costs.
1
Comprehensive solar system installation
We recommend that you go with an 18-panel solar system paired with a 6kW SMA Inverter and a 14kWh Tesla Powerwall Battery. This system will power most homes all year round and reduce their future power-bill by about 80%. It will also give you power in a power-cut. The cost for this comprehensive system is usually around $35,000 for an average home.*
2
Standard solar system installation
Our 12-panel solar solution will generate more electricity for your home. This is a 4.6kW array paired with a 5kW Inverter. The cost for this system would be approximately $12,000 for an average home.*
3
Entry level solar system that can be added to in the future
Our entry level solar system is an 8 panel array (3kW) paired with a 5kW Inverter. The cost for this system would be approximately $9,500 for an average home.*
4
Prep for solar now, install later
We offer a simple and easy pre-wire package for a string inverter system. This involves us running the cable from where the panels will go to where the inverter will be located. The cost for this set up would be approximately $2,000 for an average home.*

*Pricing includes installation and GST, however, please note these costs are an indication only – we’ll need to view your house plans to confirm our recommendations and costs.

Inclusions

All of our solar systems come with a comprehensive monitoring tool which allows you to view production, consumption, import and export at live times. This is very helpful for you to view once you move in so you can adjust your habits and improve your savings. You can also use this data to help make informed decisions about adding more panels or batteries in the future.

We also include a hot water timer in our pricing above to ensure your hot water cylinder is going to be powered during day-light hours.

Other factors to consider when building:

If you’re keen to install solar, we recommend that you avoid gas and install electric as much as possible. This is because solar cannot help any gas-powered appliance and we want you to have as few overheads as possible.

We highly recommend opting for our hot water heat pump as your main hot water heater. This system is 3-4 x more efficient at heating your hot water compared to a normal hot water cylinder. Read more about it here:

Do you have an Electric Vehicle (EV) or considering getting one in the future? If so, it may pay to install an EV Charger so you can charge your car more quickly compared to a normal three point plug. Read more about it here:

The new build process

We understand that when you are building there are lots of things to consider and many moving parts, so we like to make the solar portion as easy as possible for you. Our recommendation is to use the above pricing as a guideline for you and your home for early budgeting purposes. However, when you have finalised your plans and are in the consent process, reach out so we can give you exact pricing and up to date information for your home, as we will ask a bunch of questions to ensure you are getting the right system for your situation.

We will install the panels once the roof is on and the walls are open and then we will install the inverter once the area where the inverter is going is painted. Lastly, we may need to come back to connect the system to your wifi once your wifi is all up and running.
