"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"
Bev & Des Morrissey (Levin)
“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.
"Thank you for completing this job for us. I must say I was really impressed with the professional, punctual and courteous service of your tradesmen and office staff. Your company obviously takes pride in its customer service and this is much appreciated!!"
"Thank you all for your work on our installation - we are delighted with it and would have NO HESITATION in recommending Auric to anyone considering solar. We have found everyone that we have had dealings with to be professional and helpful, approachable and efficient and we valued their willingness to take the time and trouble to explain things to us (solar power was definitely a learning curve for us). Perhaps most of all, I really appreciate the pleasant and timely resolution of initial small teething problems - the mark of a business committed to high standards and integrity.
We are enjoying watching our power generation and are pleased we decided to take the plunge. Tony was very patient as we waded through the decision making process, answering my questions quickly and allowing us the space we needed to consider. (We had a lot of other things going on at the time.) It was largely due to him that we chose Auric and we are so pleased we did!
So, once again, our thanks and best wishes to you all!"

"We had done quite a lot of research and had decided that the timing was right to invest in solar power, with the solar system prices beginning to drop, and the performance of the systems giving a good overall return on the money invested. We were also unhappy with the way that electricity prices were continuing to rise and wanted to do something that has a conservation and resource saving, eco-friendly approach.
We have been very pleased with the friendly, professional and helpful approach from Pete. He was very upfront about the costs, how to choose a power company and the potential savings. He was efficient, approachable and easy to contact. We are absolutely delighted with the results and still look forward to getting the power bill each month, especially over the summer where the bill has often been zero".
