Why should you go Solar?

You can always add more solar panels and a battery to your system at a later date if you wish to. It’s better to get on the Solar bandwagon now, then not at all.

1
You can reduce your power-bill from anywhere from 40-85%
2
You gain independence from the power companies, and with power rates going up by 5% per year you can feel assured you are making the right commitment in Solar
3
You get around a 10% return on your investment
4
You can have power available to you in a power cut (only if you have batteries)
5
You are reducing your carbon footprint with a completely renewable source of energy
6
It adds value to your home (around 1.25% on the initial investment)

How do solar photovoltaic (PV) panels work?

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.

Did you know?

Did you know that more than 300 households are installing solar across New Zealand every month?
At last count (30th Sept 2018) there were 19,497 residential connections with solar panels across the country.
1
We have many types of inverters we can provide but will make a recommendation depending on your needs and your property
2
Solar always comes first, the grid will help your appliances out if your Solar is not producing enough power and with the use of timers, it can be pushed into various appliances in your property, e.g., your hot water cylinder or spa pool.
3
If you don’t have a solar battery, we can make your inverter battery-ready in case you decide on one later
4
A DC (Direct Current) is produced from these panels, so this needs to be changed to AC (Alternating Current)
5
Your Solar Inverter will invert this DC current to
AC current
6
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels are typically installed on your roof which is either North, East or West
7
The power from the inverter is then distributed around your powered appliances. Anything that is running at that moment in time will suck up your solar power.
8
If there is any excess power and you have a battery system, then the power is diverted into the battery.
9
You don’t necessarily have to be home during the day to experience the benefits of solar power.
10
If there is any excess power once the battery and home is happy, then this is sent back to the grid, you get back about 8c per kW exported.
