It’s the best time for a more sustainable home. As you are well aware of, electricity prices are continuously rising each year, while the cost of solar energy systems have been dropping.
Switching to solar today makes real sense. This goes without saying that you need the right solution to meet your specific energy requirements. The good news is you don’t have to go far and wide to search for a reliable solar equipment supplier. The best solar solution or your home or business can be met by Solar Electric Technology Ltd, a home-grown solar specialist.

This means that the system we will install for your home or business will perform optimally in our local conditions. Optimal performance means maximum power generation and efficiency, which in turn means you’ll get the best return for your investment.

In some cases, a building consent is required for installing PV panels. For example, if you are planning to install PV panels as your roof cladding. You may also need a resource consent if your property is in a special interest or heritage zone or if your roof-mounted panels exceed height-to-boundary restrictions. But don’t worry because we’ll also take care of this on your behalf.
For residential properties, most of the systems we install are grid-connected PV solar systems. While it can generate most of your electricity demand, it allows you to draw power from the grid when your solar generation is not enough. If you generate more than you use, you’ll be able to export your excess power back to the grid and get paid by your utility retailer. The systems we design are scalable so you can add more PV panels over time as your energy demands increase.
On the other hand, some of our clients ask for an off-the-grid solar system which makes them completely independent from the national grid. It costs more than a grid-connected system since it requires a few additional components such as batteries and backup generators. Neverthless, they aren’t affected by power outages or increasing power bills. It’s also an ideal solution if you are located far from the electricity lines, as connecting to the grid becomes a more expensive option.
Solar-powered hot water heaters are also popular among Kiwis. We’ve installed hundreds of advanced technology evacuated tube solar collectors that are ideal for high hot water usage.
