solarZero® is a unique energy service. See how it can power your home.
Now you can buy solar power like you buy grid power. The big difference is that that solar power is cheaper. It is also cleaner and, thanks to battery storage, more reliable.
With solarZero® there are zero product or installation costs for the solar system and battery. It’s not hire purchase, lease or finance. We own and manage all the technology. You don’t have to worry about anything. That means we cover monitoring, repairs and necessary upgrades, including one full battery replacement during the 20-year agreement, at no extra cost to you.
solarZero® covers all of your home’s electricity needs. That means when solar needs topping up, you get access to wholesale spot prices for 100% carboNZero certified renewable electricity from our friends at Ecotricity.
A battery comes as standard with our solarZero® energy service. We own and manage this technology which includes one full battery replacement during the 20-year term of the agreement, at no extra cost to you.
As part of our solar installation, we wire your hot water cylinder so you can switch it on and off with the solarZero® app at times that make the most of your solar energy and reduce your grid power use.
We have a team of energy advisors that work with you to help reduce your overall energy costs. We provide you with a personalised energy plan and regular updates to maximise your solar use and improve your home's energy efficiency.
Our solarZero® app allows you to monitor your home's energy use, solar generation and keeps track of how much energy your battery has stored. We also monitor the system for you.
We own and manage the solar panels we install on your roof. That means you don't pay any product or installation costs for the technology, including the battery.
The solarZero® app works on your smartphone, tablet or computer, allowing you to manage energy use in your home remotely.
We manage the system for you for 20 years. This includes repairs and any necessary upgrades.
solarZero® gives you access to exclusive wholesale spot prices for 100% renewable electricity from Ecotricity. Plus, our buyback price guarantee ensures that when you sell solar power you’re paid the same rate it costs you to buy energy, excluding network charges and GST.

Yes. Our solarZero® energy service is a real game changer as it includes battery storage as standard.
When there is a power cut the battery will automatically restore power to the hub of your home within seconds. Typically, the battery will back up your kitchen and lounge so that you have lights and can use low energy use appliances like your fridge, computers, router and TV. If the outage happens during the day, the solar panels will continue to power your home and recharge the battery.
Surplus solar power is stored in the battery so you can use it to power your home at night. If the solar system is still generating when the battery is fully charged, the surplus power will be exported to the grid.
One of the advantages of the solarZero® service is that our buyback guarantee ensures that when you sell solar power you’re paid the same rate it costs you to buy energy, excluding network charges and GST.
Plus, the battery is programmed to buy and use power at times that deliver the best rates for you.
