Conan Carter

Carter is one of Business Owners for Harrisons for the whole Canterbury region

As a keen mountain biker, Carter spends a lot of time in the hills – a pastime that has made him well aware of just how many sunshine hours the Canterbury region is blessed with - surprisingly, the equivalent of Auckland. Couple that with a busy family and a large power bill, and it's easy to see why Carter got interested in Solar as the future energy.

Now, several years after buying the local Harrisons franchise, he is definitely the 'go-to' expert for Solar PV systems. Carter is experienced in working with builders and developers on both residential and commercial installations. He has even helped a significant number of customers go completely off-grid.

If you'd like an energy-efficient home but don't know where to start – simply start by getting Carter around to your place for a free energy audit. He'll show you how much you could be saving with Solar. And while there's no obligation to buy, if you do, you can take advantage of Harrison's competitive package deals and quality installations - all backed by comprehensive warranties. We also offer a range of payment options to suit and are one of the only suppliers to offer Flybuys.

Great service from first to last

Great service from first to last. Carter kept us informed in the lead up to fitting and was quick to respond to our few queries. Harry and the fitting team left a tidy job and we are very pleased with the installation. One month and we're approaching 1MWh of production. Thanks

We had our Solar panel system fitted with Harrisons Solar and am very pleased with the outcome. Conan and Kate Carter are really great to deal with and they make the whole process very easy.

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.
