A message from our CEO and Founder

Kia Ora to our solarcity friends, family and loyal customers,

Our government has introduced Zero carbon legislation to Parliament, setting targets for us achieve zero carbon emissions.

Our Prime Minister – who has referred to climate change as "our generation's nuclear-free moment" – said New Zealanders have made it clear they want "leadership " to safeguard the future for our children.

Together we are leading the way and I cannot say thank you enough to everyone that has joined solarZero. Across the past 4 years in conjunction with Panasonic and Westpac we have developed a new way to power Kiwi homes which is accelerating our nations transition to become 100% renewable far faster than the government's targets. The part that you play as a member of our Grid for Good is now critical in the fight against climate change.

Due to the large increase in the demand for our service I acknowledge that we sometimes do not work fast enough to resolve queries. Our customers are our top priority and we are committed to doubling the size of our energy advice team to help support and give more proactive technical and energy saving support. In addition to this, and alongside Panasonic, we are rapidly improving the software that lies at the heart of our service.

Together you are generating more than 12Gwh of clean energy every year. Let’s continue to give our children, grandchildren and our communities the freedom to create a cleaner, more affordable and brighter future.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions, we’d love to hear from you.

Until then,

Nga mihi nui
Andrew Booth, founder and CEO
