Did you know that in a single hour, the amount of energy from the sun that strikes the Earth is more than the entire world consumes in a year? Now, the world’s fastest growing source of energy is more accessible for New Zealanders with the launch of HRV Solar for your home
WHAT EXACTLY IS SOLAR POWER?
Picture radiant sun beams shining down and charging your phone. With a few technical bits in between. Solar power is energy sourced from the sun, and HRV Solar is making it easy to tap into that energy.
SO HOW DOES HRV SOLAR WORK?
Solar panels are made up of cells which capture the sun’s light. Inverters are then used to convert this into energy which can power your home – cook your food, clean your clothes and heat your house.
HRV systems incorporate solar panels and inverters, with the option to add battery storage, and will work with the home’s existing electrical system.
WHY GO SOLAR?
If you are looking to reduce your dependence on the grid, HRV solar panels may be for you. If you feel guilty about using the dryer on a sunny day or cranking the heat pump rather than putting on a jumper, it may be time to go solar.
If you get HRV Solar to install a battery, you can save solar energy for later too – think warm, fluffy towels fresh from the heated towel rail for your morning shower. IS IT RIGHT FOR YOUR HOME?
Solar power is suitable for existing homes, new builds, and inprogress renos. Solar panels can be installed on most roof types, and if your roof isn’t the perfect fit, HRV Solar experts will do their best to make it work.
Almost everyone can stay with their current electricity supplier, which makes it even easier. Currently HRV Solar is fitting out Auckland houses, but it’ll be offered to the rest of the country soon.
