Celebrating the 2 year anniversary of the launch of the new solarZero + smart battery service

The solarZero energy service turns two!

This month we celebrate the 2 year anniversary of the solarZero energy service in Aotearoa. In that time, our GridforGoodTM community has swelled to 5,000 Kiwi households, small businesses, and marae around the country, who are powered by solarZero.  

The numbers are staggering. Over the past two years they have enjoyed $2.3 million in power bill savings, generated thousands of hours of backup power during outages provided, and curbed 4,036 tonnes of carbon emissions. Each and every one of these 5,000 systems helping to drive our mission forward each day. (1) 

In that time, we’ve developed and improved the technology, introduced a new smart battery, advanced analytics, and user-friendly data access with mysolarZero to inform and help Kiwis become more energy-efficient literate.  

The solarZero energy service removed the financial barrier to adopt solar with an award-winning subscription service model developed with our partner Westpac. We’ve given Kiwis peace of mind with our guaranteed savings promise and access to low-priced grid power.  

We’re also offering members-only benefits like bundled broadband deals, exclusive deals on energy-efficient appliances in the mysolarZero store, and the ability to earn cash rewards through the Refer a Friend programme.

Going forward, we will continue to improve, adapt and extend our service to meet the needs of homeowners, businesses and communities throughout New Zealand.  

With the guiding principles of Kaitiakitanga and our focus on the environment we live in, we are proud to be part of the movement for a 100% renewable energy powered Aotearoa, and a Zero Carbon future.

Be part of our journey, join the GridforGoodTM today with solarZero.
