Apply online

First, check to see if your home is suitable for the Genesis solar promotion.

You must own the roof space where the solar will be installed. We are currently unable to install panels on properties on the New Zealand Heritage list or where there are legal restrictions on the installation of solar panels.

At this time we are only offering this promotion to customers who live within 50 km’s of these areas.

Solar works during the daylight hours, so to be suitable for the Genesis Solar System it’s best if you use energy during the day at home

Solar panels could be on your roof for 25 years or more, so the roof needs to be in good condition when the panels are installed. Shade will impact the performance of the system, so your roof where the panels are located needs to be largely shade free.

Solar works best on a north facing site and may be suitable for roofs with an east or west orientation. Genesis will not install on a roof with a southerly aspect.

Premium Inverters

Inverters are a key component of any solar package. We’ve selected inverters based on their reputation of in-field quality and they come with a 10 year manufacturers product warranty. Integrated solar monitoring is also included with the inverter, so you can check on the performance of your system, online or on your mobile, anytime.

Qualified and Experienced Installers

Our installers have extensive solar experience and are qualified electricians. Each installation also includes an independent quality review to ensure the electrical work has been completed to the national standards.

Your choice of inverter

Our packages come with the choice of string or micro inverters. String inverters are installed on a wall of your home (one per package). Micro inverters are installed on the roof, one at each panel and may improve output of the system and make future expansion of your system easier.
