The wide range of benefits of solar power systems

Applications

ZEN Energy solar power systems are an efficient, consistent and cost-effective way to reduce electricity costs, remove harmful carbon emissions, and gain back control over your power use. Solar can be used to power anything the mains does, from lights to ovens to fridges to Smart Home electronics - and much more.

Benefits of solar power

Solar heating is one of the most popular applications of solar power, keeping Kiwi homes warm even in the chill of winter and cool in the heat of summer. Your solar power system can fuel heat pumps, radiators, space heaters, cooling fans, or any other appliance you already have plugged in.

Solar heating powered by photovoltaic panels is instantly compatible with any temperature control system you already have installed. If it’s powered by electricity, it can be powered by solar; no extra connections required!

Hot water systems

Give ‘solar shower’ new meaning! Solar power can be used to power in-house hot water systems, using the sun hitting your roof to keep your boiler running hot. 

We use a solar diverter to ensure that anything that needs hot water now can be powered by solar energy. This device ensures that there’s always some solar power set aside after generation that will be specifically used for heating your water. 

By connecting your home to a photovoltaic solar system, you can power your hot water cylinder with the heaters you already have installed. No need for additional piping or wiring. Simply install, and enjoy the reduced electricity costs while you enjoy your morning shower in solar hot water.

Electric vehicles

The revolution in solar power technology and the increase in demand for electric vehicles go hand in hand. More and more Kiwis are making the switch to green both on the roof and behind the wheel, doubling down on the ecological benefits of driving electric and powering their vehicle through solar.

Combined with an appropriate residential charging system, solar power can be used to fuel an electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid, the free power from solar offsetting the increased electricity costs an electric motor can demand.

Heating and cooling

Solar heating is one of the most popular applications of solar power, keeping Kiwi homes warm even in the chill of winter and cool in the heat of summer. Your solar power system can fuel heat pumps, radiators, space heaters, cooling fans, or any other appliance you already have plugged in.

Solar heating powered by photovoltaic panels is instantly compatible with any temperature control system you already have installed. If it’s powered by electricity, it can be powered by solar; no extra connections required!

Swimming pools and spa pools

Instantly reduce power costs and increase your available swim time simultaneously with solar power.

Solar energy is easily one of the most cost-effective ways of heating your swimming pool. Using a solar diverter, you can ensure that there’s always some solar set aside to keep your swimming pool swimmable. After a short installation, you can use the already existing temperature control systems to keep things temperate for maximum enjoyment.

In fact, the solar power systems from ZEN Energy don’t just run the heaters in the pool. They can power the water pump, filter, lights and anything else that requires electricity too.

Backup power

Solar is an excellent choice for keeping the lights on even when the grid gives out. Solar can keep critical appliances like the fridge and freezer running during blackouts, or, with the right system, even keep your entire home powered. 

Fancy being the only house on the street with the lights on the next time there’s a grid power hiccup? Solar is the right choice for you.
