The largest solar energy system on a school in New Zealand was officially opened in a ceremony at Kaitaia College. Te Tai Tokerau MP, Hon. Kelvin Davis, unveiled a plaque to acknowledge completion of the 368-panel project which is spread across the rooftop of multiple buildings on the school campus.
"We received solar installation quotes from several different companies including Solarcraft for our existing house. They all seemed knowledgeable and the prices were similar. Ultimately we decided to go with Solarcraft due to the products they use - Mitsubishi Panels and Enasolar Inverter and we looked at a similar installation they had done in the area recently. When Mark came over to measure up we knew we were discussing our options with someone who knew what they were doing and not someone just after a sale, very reassuring. When it came time for installation our choice was proven to be spot on. Lewis the installer discussed all options with us and then worked away in the heat of the day over 3 days and I must say did such a neat and professional job that you just couldn't fault it. Roofing was lifted to lay cabling out of sight and considerable time taken to ensure the inverter was placed in as unobtrusive place as possible. We can't give high enough praise for how neat this job was. All the paperwork was handled promptly by Savvy back in the office and communication was always timely. Our choice of company was again reinforced to us when the independent electrical inspector also rated Solarcraft highly and stated that he was always impressed with their work. If you are getting solar quotes, make sure you include Solarcraft on the list."
"I highly recommend Solarcraft if you are considering a Solar PV installation—note that some banks will finance these now, you only have to ask! We had a 4.5Kw system installed and everything went super smoothly, I cannot recommend Solarcraft highly enough, they are highly professional, friendly, and trustworthy. Tim was very responsive to all our requests and concerns and helpful all the way through. With Tim your sales person and your installer are the same person and he's just a phone call away, which is one of the reasons I chose Solarcraft over some other, larger installers. Thanks Guys!"
"Totally wrapt with our complete full off-grid solar system. Heaps of power to run all our modern appliances, even over winter. Great service, great people at DCPower. Best of all...no power bills! Feels good to support a local business as well"

“We have recently installed a roof mounted Solar Photovoltaic System with Solar Smart Energy. On a day to day basis we use the power that we generate then whatever we do not use gets put in to the grid. We have noticed a substantial decrease in our monthly power bill, not to mention the money we get back by putting power into the grid.
Solar Smart Energy have been a delight to work with, they have been very organised and professional during the entire project, without hesitation I would recommend to anyone thinking about installing Solar.”
Katrina Hodel, Havelock Motel
"Gerry from Solar Options designed and installed our off-grid system, excellent service all round. I can't fault the after sales care. The system works wonderfully. If you are considering solar, I would recommend Solar Options".

"It was a refreshing and genuine pleasure to work with Perry Hutchinson on the solar electrical upgrade of our holiday property on Rakino Island in 2014-5. As a long-time ‘off grid’ island bach owner, Perry brings a wealth of practical experience to bear, starting with a methodical and meticulous analysis of current and future power needs, which is steadily refined into a comprehensive proposal document and quotation, backed up with technical appendices and circuit diagrams.
He was also more than ready to consider subsequent change proposals, which enabled us to refine the final design and indeed to integrate some of the existing solar power equipment within the new installation, bringing an additional layer of flexibility.
We continue to be genuinely delighted with the result, which has transformed our enjoyment of the property and enables us to run a full size domestic fridge/freezer 24/7.....luxury indeed!
We’re 100% confident of Perry’s ongoing support and assistance to ensure we get the very best out of our investment".

"Thanks for all your work and support with the installation. I'm really delighted with the final result, and have received lots of positive feedback from our teaching staff around the changes.
The finished job looks incredibly neat and tidy, and (most importantly) is really functional for what we need.
The blokes who did the actual installation were polite, well-presented, and kept their work area safe and tidy. I'm really impressed with the level of professionalism and workmanship"
"After obtaining quotes from several solar installers, we made contact with Jarrod at Solar Solutions who
really took the time to work out what would work for us and our budget.
We are very happy with the PV system installed. The Elios controller that Jarrod advised us about and
installed is world class with power management and hot water control.
I have and will continue to recommend Jarrod and his team at Solar Solutions".
A reduction of $4200 a year in electricity costs is anticipated by Hospice South Canterbury with the installation of solar panels on its Broadway Avenue facility.
The 16.25 kilowatt system comprising 50 photovoltaic panels has been installed over the last week and Hospice general manager Peter O’Neill is delighted with the advantages it will bring.
