Posted on November 03, 2016

Ok, so you’ve already worked out you cansave $2,000 in fuel costsper year by moving into anelectric vehicle.

But what about solar?
Does it pay for itself, and will it save you money?

It may or may not be economic for your particular situation today …. but one thing we can be sure of is that at some point a large part of New Zealand will move to solar. It’s no longer a matter of**if, but ratherwhen**.

Ecotricity is proud to work closely with leading solar hardware providers and have launched theecoSAVERandlowSOLARprice plans to support you and your family to a renewable future.

Supplied by New Zealands only 100% carboNZero Certified Renewable electricity sourced from wind, hydro and solar, these plans include a33% discount for offpeak ratesto charge your electric car, or your spa pool , or your clothes dryer …..

To work out if solar is right for you, we suggest trying the EECA solar calculator below.  It makes some high level calculations on whether solar is suitable for your house, and takes into account;

  • the angle of your roof
  • which direction it faces
  • whether you have people at home during the day
  • how much you are currently paying for electricity
  • what is the interest cost of your mortgage or what deposit rates you are receiving

It also provides feedback on what sized solar system you should use taking into account higher solar generation in summer, but higher consumption in winter.
