The Advantages of Solar Panels
Did you know that enough sunlight reaches the earth in one hour to power the world for an entire year? So why choose solar energy? Unlike the vast resources needed to extract and consume fossil fuels, anyone can purchase and install solar panels to take advantage of this wealth of sunlight at our disposal. Best of all solar energy can generate significant long-term savings on electricity bills.
Why Choose Solar? Save on your electricity bills
Installing solar panels on your roof will significantly reduce your monthly electricity bills and dependence on the power grid. This energy freedom can protect you against rising electricity costs and unstable fuel prices. With analysts projecting continued increases in electricity rates, solar energy remains a cost-effective solution and long-term investment in the future. The benefit of reducing your energy bill is reason enough to choose solar energy.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Unlike electricity generated by fossil fuels, solar doesn’t release harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) into the environment. Sustainable carbon-free power solutions such as solar are essential to slowing the pace of climate change and limiting further damage to the environment.
Solar Increases The Value of your Home
Studies have discovered that homes with solar panels can sell up to 20 percent faster and obtain a 17 percent bonus compared to homes without solar energy systems. Installing solar panels in your home can make your property more attractive to buyers, hence increasing its resale value.

Solar Energy FAQs
Which size system will i need?
Choosing the size of the system is all dependant on the amount of power consumption required to run your home.
Some people may choose to install a small system to lower their power bill while others may look to minimise their need to pay for power at all. The average New Zealand home requires a system between 5-6 kilowatts to achieve this.
Our trained solar technicians offer a free home assessment and can help you choose the right system by analyzing your past power consumption.
What side of the roof do I put the solar panels?
The North facing sector of the roof is optimal for solar power generation. Panels on an Eastern or Western facing roof will still create sufficient power. Panels on the Southern facing sector of a roof are not recommended.
What is the payback period for a solar power system?
In most cases the typical payback period is between 8 and 10 years.
This is dependent on the amount of power the system creates and the cost of power in your region.
As the cost of power continues to increase, it is likely the payback period will continue to decrease.
How long will a solar power system last?
Our solar panels come with a 20 year warranty, that guarantees the panels will provide at least 80% of the rated use after 20 years.
