How solar energy services works

Just one hour of the sun’s energy could provide enough electricity to power the world for a year.

We're unlocking the abundance of solar for New Zealand and New Zealanders. We believe our nation should be powered 100% by renewable energy. Now is the time for all of us to work together to build a more sustainable New Zealand.

 

How our solarZero energy service works

  1. Future proof your home by using our pre-wiring guidelines when building or renovating so you can easily add a storage battery, or a charger for your electric vehicle.
  2. As part of our solar installation we pre-wire your hot water cylinder as you will soon have the option to control it remotely with the solarZero app.
  3. You are assigned a personal energy advisor who works with you to help reduce your overall energy costs. They provide you with a personalised energy plan and regular updates to maximise your solar use and improve your home's energy efficiency.
  4. Our solarZero app allows you to monitor your home's energy use and solar generation. We also monitor the system for you 24/7.
  5. We own and manage the solar panels we install on your roof. That means you don't pay any capital costs for the technology.
  6. The solarZero app works on your smartphone, tablet or computer, allowing you to monitor and control your home remotely.
  7. We manage the system for you for 20 years. This includes repairs and any upgrades necessary to deliver guaranteed production from the solar system.
  8. solarZero gives you access to mates rates for grid power. We also give you exclusive access to our buyback guarantee that ensures the rate you pay to buy energy, not including network charges, is the same as you get paid for any surplus solar.
