After researching the market thoroughly, I settled on Vital to install our home PV system in 2022 and they did a very neat and professional job. Good assistance in working with the local lines company and excellent support in bedding in the control and monitoring systems. They know their stuff.

I've had the Enphase System now for a little over a year and I am just sorry I didn't get it installed sooner. We got 20 panels installed and glad we did that to make the most of whatever energy we are able to capture and use. Although I haven't changed the way in which I use electricity in the home, I have been able to see where I can maximize the solar energy and use it when I can although any extra is fed back to the grid (albeit at a piddly rate). Installation was seamless and the after sales service and support to change electricity service providers and respond to questions is second to none. Great service provided by the team at Vital Solar!!!

We heard about Vital Solar from a friend (a crusty old engineer who knows about stuff!) and he recommended them. We’re chuffed with the small system they did for us. Excellent service, convincing products and serious after sales service. Good work Cam and team! Many thanks.

We selected Vital Solar for our PV solar install because Cam was the only one to come to our place to view the site and wiring prior to quoting, which gave us confidence in their approach. The Enphase system was also recommended to me by a longstanding friend who is an electrician and Enphase also undertake some of their R&D in Christchurch with students from the University of Canterbury. On the whole, we were really impressed with Maryann, Cam and the team from Vital Solar and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in installing solar to their property.

Very happy with the service we got from Vital Solar. Even though they are not the original installer of our pannels, they were happy to replace a failed Micro Inverter, and provided extended afterservice when problems had to be resolved. I would highly recommend using their services

These guys supply a superior product and were the only ones to come and see us to have a look. They are very personable and kept us fully informed throughout the entire process. They personally install the panels and set up the power. Cam was great to deal with on site and Maryann was prompt with keeping us up to date and organising the inspector and power company. I was impressed in the way they left everything tidy and clean. We are very happy with our drop in power bills. They also have great after sales service. Would thoroughly reccomend Vital Solar.

Can't recommend this team more. We were nightmare customers (not they they would every tell us) with more questions than you can imagine and they were patient, accommodative and nothing was ever an issue. Even after the installation they are still there to help whenever we need. Truely the best.

We were virtually clueless when we started exploring Solar . Contacted a few companies including Vital Solar . We were so impressed from the outset with Maryanne responding to our myriad questions quickly & patiently . We decided to accept Cam & Maryanne’s offer to do a site visit to fully understand our requirements before quoting ( they were the only company to do this ) On receipt of the detailed quote there were still further questions from us . Never once were we fobbed off or made to feel stupid . We accepted the quote & the installation was pretty seamless after that . On go live , Cam & Maryanne did a detailed handover . Nothing has been too much trouble , their whole team have been friendly & professional . Cannot recommend Vital Solar highly enough - we are very pleased with the decision to go with them !
