Daryl and Karyn are Business Owners for Harrisons Solar in Wellington

A born-and-bred Wellingtonian, Daryl has over 20 years' experience in the energy industry and uses knowledge learnt from a background in solar, electricity, and LPG to help homeowners throughout the nation's capital make informed decisions about the benefits of solar energy for their homes.

Daryl offers the full package – from expert analysis and free, no-obligation, in-home energy audits, to expert installation and warranties he stands by – and can offer expert advice, quality brands, and top-class solar products. Consultations are designed to be concise and easy to understand. Karyn looks after the office management side of the business and behind the scenes for each solar install. Together, Daryl and Karyn make a great team helping you every step of the way.

Because Wellington has just as many sunshine hours as other of New Zealand's "sunny" spots, solar can be just as beneficial as most other areas around the country – but we do get some extreme weather conditions at times, and our expert advice and approved contractors make sure that our installations are certified and built to withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at us.

"Our business is built on trust and commitment," Daryl says. "We are not a hard-sell, pushy company with baffling sales techniques, but a local family-owned business looking to offer you great products and expert advice. We are 100% committed to making sure your home is energy efficient. We specify high quality products and it's our commitment to you that the product or system that you purchase from Harrisons Solar Wellington will give you the results that you are looking for."

Our customers love what we do

Outstanding and no sales pressure

If yo are considering installing solar panels, I would highly recommend going with Harrison’s Solar in Wellington. From getting three quotes to deciding upon what is value for money when going down this track - Harrison’s were outstanding and no sales pressure. My first contact was with Daryl - the company franchise owner who viewed our property and came up with pragmatic options to consider. We own an old house and the installation would not be that straight forward. Following receipt of the quote and various options, it was easily dealing with Karyn who oversaw the transition from one power supplier to another. The installation team headed by Jake was fantastic! They worked fast and tidied up after themselves. We did have a switchboard issue related to the old house wiring and Jake was quick to come back and sort this out for us. We have had no problems since. In relation to the solar panels - I did some research and they are of European design - more costly than the other two quotes but more efficient. You will not be disappointed going with Daryl and his team.

I immediately felt secure

Harrison’s Solar are just awesome. I met with Daryl, who was a top guy IMO. Professional and intelligent, we had a face-to-face chat and I immediately felt secure. The guys he sent out to measure everything up for the install, and do the install, were friendly and professional too. The whole team were awesome (including Karyn!).

Already we can see the benefits

Excellent service from start to finish. Unforeseen supply chain issues (COVID) delayed the installation, but the team kept us fully informed at all times. Full install including the Tesla Power Wall was completed 2 days ago and already we can see the benefits in cost savings. Highly recommend the service by Harrisons.

They were great

Thank you to Daryl & the team. Great communication! We were delighted with the install. we specifically thanked the team for the quality of the work, and the manner in which it was undertaken. They were great.



Couldn't ask for more

Great experience with Harrisons, couldn't ask for more. They gave good advice, did a high quality job for a good price. Very happy and I'm already recommending to others.

Delivered on time with a minimum of fuss

We have been very pleased with the installation from start to finish. Not only was the whole process very well managed by Daryl, who answered all our many questions and kept us well-informed throughout the process, but he ensured that it was delivered on time with a minimum of fuss by pleasant and obliging staff. The regulatory sign-offs were also delivered promptly by the office staff and the system is performing well and meeting all our expectations. Our initial results also suggest that installing solar power has been a far better choice for us than purchasing a fully electric vehicle, which would have cost three times as much. We believe it would be hard to find a better operator than Harrisons to deliver both excellent advice and efficient delivery of their solar systems.

System has backed up our essential loads perfectly

Daryl spent a couple hours going over various options during consultation phase, answering a myriad of questions and providing lots of useful info.

Jake and Co. did an incredible install. They catered to my (picky) requirements, and always discussed item positioning before securing anything. It looks awesome. Thank you team.

Previously we were spending $3k on power and $7k on petrol for two cars per year. Now we're spending $1.5k on power per year including fuel for two EV's.
Living rural, we've had a few 6+ hour power cuts since install, and the system has backed up our essential loads perfectly.
Even with 80% renewable power in NZ, the remaining 20% is quite dirty. The environmental payback period compared to grid is faster than initially expected (About 4-5 years for the panels, same again for the batteries).
If you're looking for solar, give Daryl a call. Recommended.

Free power for up to half a day

We have been in our new home for just over a month now and have free power for up to half a day in the winter time, which is great. Can't wait to see how it works in the summer now.

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.
