Why should you consider solar energy?
Every year, more and more New Zealanders are choosing to supplement or even outright replace their utility company power supply with clean, green solar energy. As of the beginning of 2021, the Electricity Authority reports that over 30,000 solar systems have been installed on government buildings, businesses, farms and homes - and it’s easy to see why.
NZ is perfect for solar
New Zealanders have a lot to be proud of. Our country regularly punches above its weight in agriculture, tourism, sports and, now, solar. Aotearoa has one of the highest solar potentials of any country in the world, beating out parts of even sun-soaked places like Spain. If there was a place in the world perfect for solar, NZ is it.
Do your part to reach climate goals
Currently, the vast majority of New Zealand’s utility power comes from wind, solar, biomass and geothermal sources. We create a huge amount of our energy from renewables, but we’ve set our sights even higher, with a goal of total removal of fossil fuel energy generation by 2030. Solar is your opportunity to get ahead of the curve in renewable tech and do your part to reduce your carbon footprint.
Save money instantly
There’s no question that solar power saves you money. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to cut your utility costs or a business owner looking to loosen up some cash flow, solar power instantly starts saving you money as soon as it’s installed. In fact, with the right system, the right solar power kit could mean you never have to pay another utility bill again - ever.
Increase your property value
Solar power adds value: it’s a fact. Home buyers all across New Zealand are willing to spend a premium if a property comes with a solar power kit already installed. As more and more residences make the switch to self-generated solar, not having solar equipment could end up making a property the odd one out!
