Solar News

We're all about saving you energy and have rounded up the latest solar, climate and energy news so you don't have to.

Spring is in the air which might explain why energy reports are popping up like daffodils at the moment. To save you time we’ve read them for you and prepared a helpful summary.

Consumer NZ warns that if you buy a solar system it could take years to pay for itself. That’s not an issue with our solarZero energy service. As there are zero set up costs you start saving money on your power costs from the start. Consumer goes on to say that the payback time for the battery is far longer than its lifespan. Again, with zero product and installation costs you don’t have to worry about that as a solarZero customer. Plus, we’ll give you one full battery replacement during the 20 agreement, at no extra cost to you. Awesome!
