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.

MAKE THE SUN WORK FOR YOU
