We're proud to be part of Māori Television’s latest season of Marae DIY.

As programme sponsors, solarZero have provided five marae across New Zealand with a solarZero service to provide clean, sustainable solar energy to the communities who are served by each Marae.

This partnership recognises that both Māori and non-Māori peoples of New Zealand aspire to return mana to our land, and bring our people back to the ways of kaitiakitanga by combining tradition with modern technology to protect our environment.

Here's an exclusive sneak peak at Marae DIY 2019

Marae DIY 2019, Maori TV (on air from 24 October 2019)

We're proud to be part of Marae DIY's new season: series 15, premiering on Maori TV, Thursday 24 October.

The show runs over 7 weeks and showcases the five maraes who have had new solarZero systems installed to access the power of the sun to their meeting houses.

Tune in to see how solarZero has brought the benefits of the sun’s energy to remote communities in NZ.

Working with Iwi

Our team worked with five Hapū across New Zealand, and by providing access to solar energy to each Marae we demonstrated how kaitiakitanga can be achieved as a community.

In the days leading up to the big reveal, we learned the responsibility whanau feel toward the whenua, and that by working together, discussing ideas and issues, we can all work together towards a better future.

We believe in Kaitiakitanga - the Māori principle of guardianship. It's a constant reminder to look after our land and people for the generations to follow. Climate change threatens us all. Now's the time to act, before it's too late. This is our nuclear-free moment. We're also disturbed by our country's energy network. Dirty power is the norm and prices keep rising creating poverty. The system is broken. But there's a better way. And it starts by harnessing the abundant energy of the sun and sharing it's power.
