As the cost of electricity continues to rise and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment is becoming more profound, there’s never been a better time to turn to solar power. solarcity is changing the solar energy game – to make it cheaper, greener and more accessible for everyone. .
Everything always feels better when the sun is out and now there’s another reason to celebrate. If you’re a parent or caregiver at home during the day you can cut the cost of your family’s power bill by switching to solar, without incurring any upfront costs to install the solar panels.

Your Family Home
solarZero ticks lots of boxes for parents and caregivers at home using power during the day, you reduce your household spend while looking after the environment and the future of your children and you don’t have to do anything because your roof does all the work for you. Solar not only saves money but it can also improve the quality of life for you and your family.
Andrew Booth, founder and chief executive of solarcity says, “Despite the evidence of the severe impact of climate change, we remain hooked on coal and gas. As your power company does not let you specify renewable energy only, the only way to move away from using fossil fuels is to adopt energy sources like solar. We know that 85% of Kiwis want to go solar but have been put off by the upfront cost of the panels. Now for the first time, there are no upfront costs so you don’t have to choose between helping the environment and saving money. We can deliver power at a price that’s below your current provider and fix that price for 20 years. With the power of solar we can help guide Kiwis towards a sustainable energy future. We have huge reserves of sunshine, so making use of it is simply a matter of common sense.”
