Reviews From Solar Power System Owners

We have asked people that brought a solar power system after getting 3 quotes through My Solar Quotes how their solar power systems are going! We asked:
What size system did you install?
How long has your solar power system been running for?
How did you find the solar installation?
How have you found the performance of the solar power system?
Do you have any other comments that you would like to share with New Zealanders thinking about going solar?

Size: 2.34 kW

Running for: 3 Months

Comments on the installation: "Installers turned up when they said they would. Carried out the total job in a couple of hours which was impressive."
Comments on the system performance: "As the days get longer we see an increase in production of course. During the winter months, believe we have saved at least 30% on our power bills, but as this is a new house with electric only heating, it could be an even higher saving."
Advice: "Due to low buy back rates in New Zealand, believe solar investment gives the best return only if you can use your appliances (e.g., dishwasher, washing machine, iron, vacuum cleaner, oven) during the hours of production - pre-programming on appliances makes this quite possible even if you're not at home during the day. Love the idea of reducing our carbon footprint, but think there should be more incentives for more people to do so."
