After relocating back to Christchurch with his wife Billie to raise their two young children in their hometown, Chris decided to join Harrisons Solar.

Very happy with the product

Just got my solar panels installed last week. Time frame was rather short and the installation process was even brought forward several days. Chris was very helpful and responds quickly to our questions. Overall very happy with the product and the team.

First month shows a cut in bills

Absolutely superb planning, installation and post install service all organised by one of their local guys here - Chris Dearsley. We installed over 8kW of panels together with a Tesla Powerwall battery. First month shows a cut in bills from $323 in June pre install to a projected $66 in July post install.

Frequently Asked

All your Solar questions answered

Will Solar work in NZ?

Absolutely! New Zealand has abundant sunshine and generates between 1,700 and 2,100 sunshine hours annually. Some areas, like Nelson and Gisborne, receive as much as 2,400. Solar Panels don’t require sunshine; they require daylight, so Solar Panels work year-round, even in the lower South Island.

How many Panels do I need?

The average energy consumption is essential in determining the number of Solar Panels you need. A retired couple will have a different power consumption than a young family, plus pools, spas, and electric cars can also impact energy requirements.

The amount of energy Solar Panels can generate depends on sun hours and is therefore affected by your location.

Your roof size is crucial because it determines the number of Panels that can fit on your roof, how much energy will be generated, and the cost.
