85% of Kiwis want to go solar but have been put off by the upfront cost of the panels. For the first time in New Zealand there is a simple way to go solar with little to no upfront costs. This zero down plan is the first of its kind in New Zealand is designed to let families generate cheaper power without having to choose between helping the environment and saving money.

To help the nation achieve the government’s goal of achieving 90% renewable energy by 2025, solarcity has joined forces with the University of Otago to launch the solarLab initiative. The solarLab initiative is a study into solar energy use, that is conducted through the real-time research of 120 solarZero systems installed onto residential and commercial properties, including 5 schools and businesses. The aim of the study is to better inform and guide New Zealand towards a sustainable energy future. As part of the study, there is also the opportunity to beta-test the latest technologies in the energy efficiency and solar space.
