Save your solar... and save on your bill

We’ve passed the halfway mark of a two-year solar hot water diversion system trial with 85 solar and electric hot water cylinder customers across New Zealand. We started in November 2016, and so far we’ve had positive results, with on average up to 38% of the solar electricity generated able to be used to heat the water cylinder. Meaning customers can store and use more of their own energy.
