Launch of a website for installers

solarcity, the nation’s leading solar power company, has launched, enabling solar installers to buy the latest solar technologies at the best prices, backed up by the company’s award winning engineering team.

In 2008 solar panel prices were 343% higher than in 2013, and in parallel the retail price of power has increased by 84%. As a consequence the market for solar energy is rapidly expanding in New Zealand and contractors who are able to offer high quality installations will be best placed to win more work.

"Our new wholesale website builds upon our 40-year legacy of manufacturing, designing and installing solar systems in New Zealand," says Andrew Booth, CEO of solarcity. "Our objective is to make solar more accessible and to support our installer customers by making it easier, so they can focus on growing their business faster."

With its easy to navigate categories, comprehensive descriptions and detailed images, installers can quickly browse and find the products they need. Useful features include the ability to;

- Search for a specific product, brand or product code

- Compare products

- Filter products by multiple features or price

- Specify fully engineered solar packs ready for installation - Save favorite products for future reference

Unlike other wholesale providers provides its clients with a turnkey solution by providing both the equipment and supporting engineering advice and documentation to help trade professionals develop their solar business.
