Here’s what the locals had to say...

Hawkes Bay

We were very happy with the performance of our solar and Tesla battery system during the recent outages due to Cyclone Gabrielle. As a precaution we adjusted our back up to 100% a few hours before the system alerted us that it was going on to Storm Watch mode anyways. Being the first big storm since we’ve had the system we just wanted to be sure the battery was charged before we went to bed Monday night.

Our power along with most of Hawkes Bay went out at around 8.30 Tuesday morning. Normally in a power outage we still have wifi and data. Without connectivity we couldn’t see the live updates of the systems activity so we’re guessing how much power there was in the battery. So, we started to be conservative with our use and with the internet out also no one was using devices that much. Otherwise we continued to cook, use lights and have hot showers as normal. The neighbours even came over for a shower. When the internet came back on we were amazed to see that at no point had the battery gone below 60% and we’d always had heaps to spare.

我’ve attached the screen shots of our battery activity for the week which really says it all. We are very happy with our solar and battery system and feel it is a really important part of our household resilience plan.

Great to work with and made everything very easy and straight forward.

Harrisons created a customised solar set up for my home that looks great, and is cost effective. I looked at a few different solar providers, some others were cheaper but further research showed that their hardware was inferior. I’ve done the research for you, just choose Harrisons Solar. You won’t be disappointed, wish I had done it sooner

Ruth Stoddart


Enjoyed working with Laura and Dave. They explained everything very clearly and responded in a timely manner to any questions we asked. The installers were great and stayed til nearly 7pm to get it all sorted on the second day. We had a long delay between our first visit and actually starting the process of getting the system set up due to the length of time our room took to build but Laura and Dave didn’t hassle us and just got in touch occasionally to see how we were progressing

Carol Rowland


From start to finish of having solar installed, Harrisons have made the process a positive experience.

Laura was great, very knowledgeable and offered good advise to suit out situation, she responded almost immediately to our further enquiries after the initial meeting with no concerns of how many times I emailed her.
The contractors who installed the system were professional and competent in their work. The installation took longer than they anticipated and they worked on that day until it was completed.
We met with Dave the day after the inspectors had signed off the job and he was helpful in the setting us up of the app and explaining how to get the best use of the power the panels were producing.

We initially contacted Harrisons Solar after hearing very good feedback we had from friends and family. We were certainly pleased we took their advise. Thank you to Laura and Dave for your excellent service and product.

Glenn Marshall

Outstanding service and product!! We obtained a couple of quotes and ended up going with Laura, Dave and the team at Harrisons Solar Hawkes Bay. They used their own in-house installers who were brilliant to work with and they did a first class installation job. I thoroughly recommend you pay the extra price to get the Fronius smart meter and app, so you can see what's happening in 'real time' as this enables you to adapt your power consumption to achieve the maximum out of your system. There are cheaper providers out there, but in the long run its worth paying a bit more for a great product and service, and value for money. Solar power is good for the environment and financially worth it in the long run, especially given Hawkes Bay has some of the highest sunshine hours in NZ. Thoroughly recommend these guys for your solar needs. 10/10.

While still living in Auckland I made enquirers with 3 different solar companies in the Hawke’s Bay to add solar power to the home we had purchased in Clive in January 2022. Of 3 companies I had contacted Laura & Dave from Bay Energy Ltd (Harrison’s Solar) got back to me (the other 2 didn’t make contact with me & missed out on a big sale) and we set a date to meet in June to meet to talk about adding solar power to home we had bought. I met with Laura and she went over the Harrisons solar product range, the costs across the range, the guarantees across the product range, she then assessed our home roof space to how many panels could be installed to give us the best use of sun path to obtain the most solar power.

Laura, Dave & all of their team have been a pleasure to work & deal with from the moment we first met, signed our quote & work started & finished and our system was turned on. We are now looking forward to seeing the results from the great work they have all done and it doesn’t end there knowing that Laura & Dave are only a call away to help and offer assistance at anytime.

A BIG thank you from Stacey & Russell to the team at Bay Energy Ltd

Great service. Knowledgeable team, both pre-sale and after install. Install went smoothly and we’re up and running, happy customers.

Nadine and Stefan


We used Dave, Laura, Jennifer and Juan from Harrisons in Hawke's Bay. Laura guided us through the process. She was very patient with all our questions and shed light into so many details we had not known about before. The installation took place appr. 6 weeks earlier than initially proposed, which was a nice surprise during these times. I loved their customer service, prompt reply to emails and telephone communication when appointments had to be done. Showing up on time when agreed on. Overall a very pleasant experience and we can highly recommend the team in Hawke's Bay.

Alf & Chris Herd


We highly recommend Harrison’s Solar Hawkes Bay.
Laura’s overview and guidance of the Solar systems available helped us decide on the most appropriate system for our needs.
我nstallation was completed by a professional and friendly team who kept us informed throughout the process.
Dave completed the post installation follow up by ensuring we were aware of how to get the best results from our solar system.


Havelock North

Love our Solar, would do it again. Had great service and the staff were very helpful.

Anthony Davis


Very happy with the system provided; panels and battery. Smooth process from initial visit through to final post-implementation review. Thanks to Laura, Dave and the team.

Guillaume and Esther Thomas


Good product and efficient communication. There was a significant delay in the installation, although it was clearly explained (due to the global maritime transport delays) and no extra cost were involved. There is a lot of information to take on when you install a solar system, so best to do a deep research beforehand to get the right options and the adequate return on investment. With the delay, we had forgotten a good amount of the original information and discussions we had about the project, but the contractors were very qualified and delivered good information as the panels and inverters went on. Very excited to produce electricity from our roof!

Graeme & Robyn Gichard


Laura and Duncan, and the installer Paul, have all been very efficent and professional to deal with. they were very good at explaining the options and answering our questions. The system is now working well since the hot water diverter has arrived and been installed. That has changed the efficiency of the system completely. I do wonder that the panels should have been tilted to catch more winter sunlight, but will review this after the summer. All in all we are very pleased.

Mark Beauchamp


Harrisons Solar, I am smiling. You are dealing with professionals here who supply, install and commission a quality solar power package. Tesla powerwall / gateway , LG panels and a Fronius inverter . Then we have Dave and Laura Duncan, franchise owners from the sunny Hawkes Bay. You guys are the best, you made it easy. Great people Now installed I am amazed by the AI. The system works out what your house needs then exports excess solar back to the grid to maximize savings. I feel like a thief. With 3 hours of free power through Contact energy 9pm to midnight I'm charging my powerwall to 100% ...lol that's enough to run my house the next day and it's halfway through June. Bring on summer

Lyn Rae


我would recommend Harrison's in a heartbeat. From the gecko they were so professional and easy to deal with in the lead up to agreeing to install Solar Panels at my residence. What a great decision I made in relying on them to sort out how many panels I would need and going through the process of saving power, plus the added bonus of credits going back into the grid and reducing my power bill. The added Timer also a bonus in being able to turn off my Water Cylinder to again reduce costs. Laura and Dave Duncan were amazing people to deal with.

Mike and Heather


太阳能电池板之旅已经很容易了欧宝APP手机版Harrisons. From the initial contact and presentation with Laura (Hawkes Bay) to the review of the process with Dave at the end, it has been an enjoyable journey. We have been kept up to date at all stages through the process. Have been very happy with all involved in the installation process and would recommend Harrisons Solar without reservation.



这是一个伟大的经验从开始到四周finish. Laura and her team has been amazing through out with communication, really easy to deal with. The system works perfectly and immediately reduced our power bill by half our average numbers, given that we even did more washing and drying these days. Really happy with the investment so far.

Peter and Kylie Marsh


Laura and the guys were awesome. Callum who installed the system with his off sider did a great job. They even helped out with unisons upgrade at the pole. The whole experience from plans to sign off was well within time frames and one that now sees us with a system generously reducing our monthly power bills. Very very happy

Phill and Stacey Brown


We had 9 panels and a Primo inverter (3.1KW) system installed around a month ago. Our last power bill dropped (from 2019) from to $75 down from $165 and this included a number of cloudy days! The service has been top-notch, with no hassles. Harrisons looked after us!"

Helen & Phil


Harrison’s were a great find for our family. Laura and her team gave their all when it came to the explaining/purchasing and ultimately the fitting of our solar panels. Very fast instalment time and unfortunately we went into lockdown before they could be turned on however we were always kept in the loop and as soon as lockdown was over the big turn on took place. Thank you to everyone involved.

We have just finished building our new house and from the outset we had planned to have solar power installed. Well before the plans were drawn up we started researching different solar power companies for quotes. We particularly liked the idea of having a Tesla battery for power storage as they are very compact in design rather than the bulky lead acid battery combinations on offer and they were just coming onto the market in New Zealand.

When we first met Brad he said Harrisons could offer a Tesla battery as part of a solar installation and the price quoted was very favourable when compared to other companies. Brad was able to answer all our questions and we were impressed with his knowledge of what would be best for us. Therefore it was easy to choose to go with Harrisons.

As our solar system was going to be incorporated into the building our house, we bombarded Brad with many questions that were sent by email e.g. where should the Tesla battery be placed, where does the inverter go, how big was the Tesla battery, where will the cables go into the walls, how many solar panels would we need, how are the panels fixed to the roof etc, etc. the list was endless. Brad always answered our questions usually by return or within a day if he had to find out an answer for us. He always came up with an answer for us and with his help and knowledge we ensured that our house was ready for the solar installation. We really appreciated his service in giving quick responses, attention to details and keeping in touch with us throughout the build process.

The installation of the solar system went quickly and without a hitch and Brad’s team of installers did a great job. All credit to them and Brad for helping us getting everything right first time.

We have no hesitation in recommending Brad and his team.

Phillip and Christine


我们有我们的屋顶上安装太欧宝APP手机版阳能电池板。我did my homework and spoke to another couple of companies... but finally decided on Harrisons....they are a major company in NZ ....carpets and a lot of other things....and we decided on Harrisons because their local representitive...a guy called Brad Horne...was incredible...he is a local in the Hawkes Bay and he came around and discussed everything with us...with good advice and what we could expect out of panels on the roof....costs...and expected savings....no salesman talk just honest advice...well we went ahead ...and its the best thing we ever did.......our power bills have been reduced by over 70%...and if we manage use of power.....which Brad has helped us with we use appliances at the best time of the day...winter and summer...its amazing...and by the way it adds value to your property

The process...design...and installation was done quickly efficiently and professionally......and another advantage is that the service is on going.....if there is a problem....which there hasnt been...other than how to read the daily savings on our Ipads or cell phones.....Brad is always there....either at the end of his phone....or even comes around to see us to explain to us ...and we arent that brilliant when it comes to techno things....buts its not really techno....its simple....and we dont have to do anything other than get a big surprise when our power bill comes through

我think...its the best thing we did....and Brad Horne is a wonderful gentleman to deal with....just do it....you wont regret it.

Annie & Warrick


We were very impressed with Brad from Harrison’s Energy from the outset. Brad is a great communicator and proved to be professional and a man of his word. He was willing to travel to visit our rural home to assess what system would best suit us and our needs. He gave us excellent advice and provided us with comprehensive knowledge of the different options available to us, enabling truly informed decision making. Brad was able to work out the optimal output of solar for our home, gave us an on-site quote, and we are rapt with the savings already. The tradespeople Brad uses were also amazing - efficient installation; respectful and friendly guys. We are thrilled with the Harrison System and love the monitoring app which helps us to best optimise our savings. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Harrison’s and Brad Horne to anyone.

Many thanks, A Very Happy Customer

John and Pamela


We had discussed the possibility of installing solar panels for some time and did quite a bit of market research into this, as well as getting various quotes.

欧宝APP登录网页哈里森。是一个便宜,一个nd having met Brad, with his in depth knowledge of the panels, the fact that Harrisons have superior panels to others on the market and his in depth explanation of the workings and benefits of solar power, convinced us to go ahead. Brad oversaw the whole process and the installation team were also great.

Only 2 weeks have passed and already we can see the savings on our power account mounting!
