For three generations our family has been dedicated to providing individuals and organisations with the perfectly engineered solution. It started with a whiteware store in 1947 through GB Teat, which grew into a specialist commercial refrigeration, air conditioning, mechanical services and solar water heating business. In 2010 we investigated the potential of taking our decades of system design and integration experience into the solar energy market, culminating in the launch of ZEN Energy Systems as a separate business in April 2014.
A lot has changed over the past 70 years, or even the last 10 years in the solar industry, but one thing stays true. We are here for YOU, our customer. We are committed to pushing the boundaries and showing you what is possible with solar energy and energy storage. We have simplified everything so you don't need to be an expert - simply trust in us to take you on your own personal journey to Live Free™.
At ZEN, we believe solar energy and energy storage will completely transform the human relationship with electricity, and the way we work and live. Taking it from just another monthly bill, to an interactive and meaningful information source, accessible in any location. From having it delivered by a company whose name you can't remember (you know this is true), to an amazing solar asset that is powered by the sun, free of charge and will work relentlessly to deliver the best results for you, it's owner.
Solar electricity and energy storage sit where the pioneers of grid provided electricity did many moons ago. However, in a modern, first world country like New Zealand, electricity is considered in the same vein as air and water - an essential right. Maybe we're spoilt, but this points to the fact that grid provided electricity is no longer delivered by the pioneers of yesteryear, rather it's a group of corporates that control almost all of this essential market.
It's no secret that ZEN believes in the spirit of the pioneer. Having actively pursued the perfect engineered solution for over 70 years, and the perfect solar solution for the past 10, we have taken on the mission to make ownership of solar energy and energy storage available to all New Zealand homeowners. Surely, this is what a real pioneer would do!

"It’s been great. We have noticed savings from the very start, the wine was nice I won’t lie. Our bills are 40-50% less."
"I was skeptical about the savings at first, we are now saving over 50% on our power bills, summer ones have dropped from $450 to $200 and winter has gone from $660 down to $320. We are happy with how persistent Jake was, the results are great"
