In the past 35+ years we’ve installed solar on more Kiwi roofs than any other company. Our customers are just like you. Find out what they love about solarZero®
Ged Taylor and his family first looked into solarZero® when they were planning a new energy efficient home. Due to all the costs associated with a new build, Ged says, it was fantastic to be able to add solar panels and a battery with product or installation costs.
Ged says that with power prices always increasing, it's comforting to know that solarZero has fixed the price for up to two-thirds of his power costs for 20 years.
"Not only that, but by using clean solar energy, we're also doing our bit to look after the planet and that's really important for the next generations."
With a young family and monthly power bills sometimes close to $400, Ravi liked the idea of being able to cut his energy costs. He started getting quotes to buy a solar system but hit a stumbling block.
“I worked out it was going to take about 10 years to break even, plus it was all on me to deal with any maintenance issues and to cover those costs.” He says he was quite amazed when he found he could switch to our solarZero® energy service that had zero product or installation costs and included access to exclusive low rates for grid power.
“That’s a real win-win.” He also saw the advantages of the 20-year agreement. "I’m going to be paying to use electricity all my life so it was great to be able to lock in some of those costs for such a long time. It also guarantees all the other benefits that the service delivers over the long term."
Joyce and her husband Boyce switched to our solarZero® energy service in early 2017 and noticed an immediate impact on their power costs. "Up until we got solarZero® our power bills were skyrocketing no matter what we did, even in the summer," says Joyce. "As we're getting older we found we were spending all our superannuation on power. We're really happy that solarZero® has cut our costs and taken away the stress."
Ivy Tapsell loved the idea of going solar but, like many Kiwis, she had been put off by the high cost of owning a system. That all changed when she heard about our solarZero® energy service that has zero product or installation costs.
"I'd looked around and this was the only way I could go solar without paying thousands of dollars upfront," she says. "Plus knowing solarcity manages the system for the next 20 years was really attractive, too."
Ivy's reasons for going solar were economic and environmental. "I was looking for ways to reduce costs and be kinder to the environment. Solar is a great renewable resource so we should be tapping into it."
Danielle and her husband, Jason, switched to our solarZero® energy service as they wanted to be more self-sufficient and have less impact on the environment.
Danielle says knowing solarcity was backed by Sir Stephen Tindall's K1W1 investment fund made it a risk-free decision to switch to solarZero®.
"solarZero® is amazing. There are no hidden costs and, even with our big family running the dryer all day, our power bill is way lower. And, because we're using solar energy, we're making a difference to the environment."
Davina Lucas is a long time fan of solar energy. "I like the idea of being able to power my house on solar as it saves me money, plus clean energy is easy on the environment."
Davina says she was surprised at how easy it was to switch to solarZero®. "It was just a couple of phone calls and, voila, solar panels were being installed on my roof." Davina has not looked back since. "I'm loving having cheaper power and I've recommended solarZero® to all my family."
Environmentally conscious Deepak Desousa was our first solarZero® customer. Deepak was spurred on to look for a renewable and sustainable energy source after experiencing an Auckland-wide power cut that resulted in his home loosing hot water for a week.
“I really appreciate all the time that solarcity set aside to talk to me and the follow up I’ve received. I never had to call solarcity they always called me and I always knew what was happening.”
