Solar power for your home

Installing solar power for your home is an easy way to reduce your energy bills and increase the value of your property.

How does solar power work?

Benefits of using solar power

  • Less dependency on the national energy grid (which is vital as power prices continue to increase by around 5% a year)
  • Save up to 80% per year on your power bills
  • Significantly reduce the carbon footprint of your property
  • Keep your systems running during power outages by adding batteries to your system and maximising your system’s storage capacity
  • Generate approximately 10% ROI on your solar power system
  • Increase the overall value of your property
  • Power your home using clean energy
  • Build up energy credits while you’re away

We get it – introducing a new system brings about questions and possibly a bit of hesitancy.

We’re here to answer any questions you have. We’re more than happy to sit down and look at the specifics for your particular property – how much energy you use and how introducing solar energy to your property would reduce your power bills.

We pride ourselves on being educators, not salespeople.

Brands we supply

We are proud to supply and install brands of solar panels and systems that are innovative, reliable and made by companies that share our ethical work standards.

Everything we supply and install can be traced back to companies with extensive ESG strategies – organisations that are trying to rid the mining and manufacturing sectors of child labour and slavery.

Because all of the products we supply and install come with a 25 year warranty, there’s no need to worry about parts wearing out and ending up in landfill.

We work with Enphase, SunPower and Schletter because of their superior quality, the suitability of their products for the New Zealand environment, and their ethical production and labour practices.

Most Enphase products are designed and tested in Christchurch, NZ. So while they’re an American company, their New Zealand lab employs 120 engineers. The product is exceptional, with flexible and scalable microinverters that ensure continuous solar production with no single point of failure.

Established in 1985 in Silicon Valley, SunPower has been developing and refining solar panels and systems for decades. They now produce some of the highest performing panels on the market.

German engineered solar mounting systems from a company that has been around since 1968. Schletter aluminium is mined in Australia to ensure they are not enabling any modern slavery practices.

With extensive experience and certification by New Zealand Master Electricians, we are the trusted solar energy systems provider for Kiwi homes and businesses. With the highest level of compliance available in solar installation, we only work with products covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and we guarantee all our workmanship.

Our commitment

Vital Solar is a proud member of SEANZ, the Sustainable Energy Association of New Zealand.

SEANZ is an independent organisation that works hard to drive our sustainable energy future, leading the promotion, support and innovation of solar PV and energy storage technologies.

Because we’re members of SEANZ, we work to a strict SEANZ Code of Conduct. It also means you can apply for financing from your bank for solar energy systems from Vital Solar.

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.
