About Vital Solar

Vital Solar was founded by Cameron Dick, a forward-thinking Kiwi with a passion for learning more about renewable energy. Whenever possible, he attends conferences overseas to understand what is happening in other regions in the renewable energy sector. Cam has a genuine interest in educating people about what we can do to move away from using fossil fuels.

Cam is an electrician by trade and is also the founder and director of Vital Electrical Ltd, a successful business he started 10 years ago. With a strong team of 7 experienced electricians and solar panel system installers, Vital has become a reputable brand known for providing innovative products and no-nonsense service for residential clients as well as some of Auckland’s biggest companies.

At Vital, we get excited about renewable energy and ways to implement energy-smart systems in your home or business. It’s the way of the future and we are continuously looking for ways to educate people about renewables.

We’re not hardcore greenies. We don’t preach environmentalism. But we do believe we all have a responsibility and an opportunity to do a little bit each day to look after our planet.

Solar is an opportunity worth looking into. You can start small if that’s all you can manage right now – it’s all good.

The Vital Solar Difference

Other solar panel suppliers will sell you a product and then put you in touch with an installation company. They’re two separate entities who both need to add a margin to their sales.

Vital Solar does things differently.

As experienced, licensed electricians we source the best product for your specific needs, design the system that will work best for your home or workplace, and then do the installation ourselves.

We deal directly with you through the entire process and remain available for ongoing assistance to make sure you fully understand how to get the best results from your system.

Why Installation is So Important

The reason we place so much emphasis on working with an in-house installation team is because they’re the people you really have the relationship with. They’re the team that you trust to work on your property.

Because Vital Solar installs the products we sell, we’re the ones who will educate you about how your solar energy system works. We’re the people you can call weeks, months, years down the road when you have a question about your solar panels or microinverter.

Too many companies sell solar panels and then claim to manage the installation themselves. If you ask them about their installers, you’ll learn that this work is subcontracted out or that labour hire teams are used.

With Vital Solar, you’re speaking directly with the same people from start to finish. Nothing gets lost in translation. No one changes phone numbers and is impossible to track down. No one adds an installation margin.

Rest assured that with Vital Solar, the team that does the initial consultation at your property will also be the team that installs your energy system.

From start to finish, our solar journey with Vital Solar has been superb. We did extensive research and obtained 5 quotes before (easily) deciding on Cam, Maryann and the Vital Solar team. Cam (MD) is highly knowledgeable about all matters solar, and patiently answered all our questions. (Ours is a tricky South facing site, so there were many questions). Maryann was super helpful and kept the ball rolling with logistics and other queries. We decided to get Sun Power panels with Enphase microinverters and two Enphase IQ 5P batteries. Vital Solar’s installation and service team (including Sam and Keenan) was very professional, helpful and tidy. After the installation was complete, Maryann also helped us get the grid connection sorted. Such great people! We did our solar due diligence, and recommend the Vital Solar team very highly. Thank you guys!😊💯

For our small installation onto our villa the discussion, ongoing communication, installation, and final product was all excellent. We highly recommend this company

Vital Solar are awesome. They will listen to what you want, and educate you where necessary so that you can get a system that works best for you and your home. They take pride in their work and do a tidy job with quality equipment. I had a few extra requests such as a Solar hot water power diverter, and that was provided and installed with no hassle. I've asked for more information about extras (e.g. batteries) since the install, and have received friendly advice and follow up. I would recommend them over the big guys who you will either never hear back from, or they will quote something from their computer without even visiting your site.

Cannot recommend highly enough. Vital Solar took the time to understand our issues and come back with excellent information- waaayyyyyy more information than the original installer had ever shared. Which meant we could make good decisions. GREAT service, fantastic communication and just lovely individuals to work with. Highly recommended.

Cameron and Maryann are engaged and knowledgeable. Dealing directly with the owner is a distinct advantage, and the fact that Cameron visited and assessed the site before quoting was a key point in our choosing Vital Electric.

Vital Solar really know their stuff. I appreciated the education on solar as part of the sales process. The Vital Solar installation team, in their Vital Solar uniforms, were professional and kept us well informed as the installation progressed. Having a 25 year guarantee backs up the quality of both the product and the service from Vital Solar, giving us peace of mind. It's been worth paying a bit more with Vital Solar than some of the other providers we approached, to get quality. We're delighted with our new system. Did someone say power prices just went up again - not for us. Thanks Vital Solar.

Cam and his team at Vital Solar were recommended through a mutual friend. Definitely made the right choice to go with them for our residential PV install. A pleasure to deal with.
