Fantastic to work with

Sharron and Steve were fantastic to work with. Steve helped us plan our solar positioning and optimise our solar capacity and Sharron was great with keeping up with communication throughout the project. We also appreciated the after sales support. We feel part of the solar family now and are looking forward to getting the most out of our investment and helping the grid!

Efficient, helpful and hardworking team

We found Steve and Sharon at Harrisons Solar Taranaki to be an efficient, helpful and hardworking team. They were excellent with explaining the process, giving us a full explanation and understanding of how everything works and the benefits we should receive. The installation was completed on time and with all our queries taken care of quickly. We would highly recommend Steve and Sharon to discuss all your solar requirements and we wouldn't hesitate to use the team again. Fred Robinson Saw Doctor, Bell Block

Exemplary Service from Start to Finish

It was a pleasure dealing with HARRISONS SOLAR TARANAKI. Steve answered the questions we had, filled us in with added extras, discussed with us the  solar panel layout, the number of panels that were going to give us the greatest benefit. Sharron was informative and kept us up to date with the installation process. Then team Swayze and Travis arrived with the gear. Before we knew it, the installation was in full swing. What a great team Steve and Sharron sent out to us. They were, polite, informative and very professional in their work ethics, and as for the music (a great choice) they had playing was very pleasant to the ear. We have dealt with many-a tradie over the years and we can vouch that Harrisons Solar Taranaki is one of the best franchises  in the Taranaki region we have had dealings with. We are very happy from start to finish with the solar installation. Well done Steve, Sharron, Swayze and Travis you are an asset to our region.Kind regards,Don and Sue

Managing Expectations and results

We contacted Harrison’s after discussing our neighbours Solar install. Due to work load it took a couple of weeks for our consultation. But the quote was basically instant. We were told from the get go the install would be approximately 10 weeks again due to work load. Sharron was very easy to with.

Sharron & Steve at Harrison's Solar Taranaki were wonderful to deal

Sharron & Steve at Harrison's Solar Taranaki were wonderful to deal with right from our first enquiry into solar power.  We felt extremely comfortable with the professional & friendly down to earth advice they provided us prior to our commitment.The installation of the panels & electrical work was undertaken by a skilled & friendly team which kept us informed throughout the job.Whilst we have had only a few days of output from the panels & those days have been a mixture of typical Taranaki spring weather, the generating efficiency has well exceeded our expectations.The post installation support from Sharron has also been of the highest standard & her advice regarding the use of the real time performance app has encouraged us to seek ways of making the most effective use of our electricity.We would not hesitate to recommend Sharron & Steve & the Harrison's products & team for anyone considering installing solar panels.

Easy to deal with and knowledgeable

Easy to deal with Sharron and Steve. Knowledgeable and fully answered all our questions.Weather played a part in a slight delay for install. Install when it happened went without a hitch. Kane and the team from Kes electrical were friendly, efficient and did a great job.Sharron gave me a good insight into the app after commissioning was completed.We are really pleased we chose to go down this route. Good to see the panels producing our electricity.Glad we went with Harrison’s.

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.

Is Solar right for me?

There are several factors to consider when installing a Solar System in your home. In most scenarios, the benefits of solar power outweigh the drawbacks.
