About Us

SunPower Solar

Backed by 30 years of experience in electronics and information technology, the Director of SunPower Solar  has been specifically solar-oriented since 2010. Unlike many of our competitors, our background in IT and electronics gives us a broad, synergistic view of solar power technology. Our staff are fully certified in electronic engineering, off-grid design, Microsoft original-equipment manufacturing and information technology, as well as international solar power experience. We offer our clients complete, cohesive solar power solutions unmatched throughout New Zealand.

We are based in Nelson and offer our services New Zealand wide. At SunPower Solar we strive to remain competitively priced while offering our customers only the highest quality Tier 1 products and services, and we aim to consistently deliver designs and estimates on appointment without delays. Unlike many solar power companies in New Zealand who use sub-contractors for their installations, we use our own in-house team.

What’s more, at SunPower Solar we aren’t limited to a specific market or function, as we have experience in commercial, residential and rural installations and are equipped to provide installations for both on-grid and off-grid properties. Best of all though, our installs are 100 percent customizable to meet the clients needs, rather than us being dependent on pre-determined packages devised to suit our own needs. This means we can offer a comprehensive range of inverters and solar panels with 10 to 25 year warranties. We only use the highest-quality products specifically for this reason, stocking from best-in-class suppliers like Trina solar panels, (at the time of writing) which was one of only a few companies in New Zealand to offer a linear output warranty for 25 years.  Now in 2017 almost all solar panel manufacturers offer a Linear 25 year warranty. SunPower Solar will continually lead the way to a bright future.

In contrast, most manufacturers only offer tiered warranties (explained on the “How it works” page) that provides customers a 90 percent guaranteed output for the first 10 years, then drops to 80 percent for the remainder of the warranty. Indeed, our motto here at SunPower Solar is to “GET THE JOB DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME”, and we pride ourselves on providing quality products and services. In addition, since we use top ranking Tier 1 panels, if we diagnose you have a panel failing the linear output warranty we will replace the panel for you and deal with the manufacturer we buy from ourselves. Yes we are backed by manufacturers warranties but ultimately your warranty is with SunPower Solar and we aim to make your solar experience as easy as possible.

We were very happy with the service we received from Patrick. In particular we were impressed with his wide experience and his knowledge of solar and computer technology. He was always willing to give the time to answer questions and clarify issues for us. Also he showed his faith in the materials he supplied by giving the lifetime guarantee. I personally watched the installation and was very happy with the standard of the work and the high quality materials used. Having the Enphase micro inverters and the Envoy monitoring system making available the production figures and graphs on line is definitely a bonus especially for someone like me who likes to keep an eye on how things are going.
