Dave McLeod, Omaranui Rd: Dave installed 5.2kw of grid tie solar power on his family home in Omaranui Road. The solar powers the house and any excess is used to charge his Nissan Leaf electric car. With the combined savings from power and petrol bills, Dave’s estimated the system will pay for itself in three years.
The sun is imperative to our farmers, horticulturists and farmers. Likewise, the global demand for sustainable growing practices makes solar power “a no brainer”. You can capture the power of the sun and add that to the provenance story of your produce. Viticulturist Xan Harding has installed solar with Freenergy and is delighted. Listen to what he has to say or check out more here.
Xan Harding, Maraekakaho: Xan installed a 10kW grid tie solar power system, with a three phase Fronius inverter on the shed in his vineyard. The power generated supports pumps and irrigation needs in summer and any excess is sent back to the grid. In Xan’s words “solar was a no brainer”.
Paul Sheeran, Hastings: Paul is the project manager for various Papakianga Maori housing developments around Hawke’s Bay including projects at Waiohiki, Waimarama, and Hastings. We’ve installed small grid tie power systems of 1.5-2.5 kW on five houses in Bennett Road. Minimising the ongoing running costs of these homes and sustainability is a key consideration in these developments.
