Mill Creek Blue Berries
Guy and Nikki Jacobson who own the Harrisons Solar franchise for the top of the South Island installed a 15kw system on our Blueberry packing shed to meet the increasing demand of electricity required for our orchard expansion. We choose to go with the Harrisons business based on the level of expertise and experience in this field. We have not been disappointed, from the first consult with Guy through to the clear and honest quoting and performance of the system we have never looked back.
Its been a absolute asset to our business, Guy and Nikki where extremely clear, based on our location that the system would work very well on our packhouse due to our power usage through the summer/harvest months but when I ask the company about installing a system on our house for winter usage Guy was very up front and said it would not work.
We really appreciate the professionalism of their company and cannot speak highly enough of the way they conduct their business for the franchise, and them as a hard working honest team.
The entire process was seamless and professional and is saving us money! Yay!
Canterbury Biltong Factory
Our local business owner Carter in Christchurch had an exciting new project working alongside David Stanley from the Canterbury Biltong factory. David decided to go solar and slash the company's power bills!
"Our main driver of going solar was a combination of economics, so investing in our future, but also the sustainability aspect is also attractive to us" - David Stanley (Canterbury Biltong, Owner)
"It's been a really easy system to install, it's gone like clockwork, and you can actually see how it's performing every minute of the day." - David Stanley (Canterbury Biltong, Owner)
Rai Valley Area School
Rai Valley Area School chose Harrisons Blenheim to manage and provide their Solar Installation, because Guy and Nikki are so passionate about what they do and being local it meant the school would have long term local support. The school’s installation was a complex one – also providing an emergency backup system supported by a Tesla Powerwall to support our Rural Community should it ever be cut off from the national grid for any length of time.
Guy and Nikki worked closely with the school and delivered the project on time and within budget. They have continued to be available with any questions and support to show how effective the system is regarding savings and energy efficiency within the school.

I really recommend Guy and Nikki. They were patient and understanding with my limited knowledge of solar panels and took the time to really discuss product options, etc. Installation was a breeze and the follow up service has been great. From all of us at Motupipi School, thank you!
Being a retail store, power consumption is high during the day. Farmlands wanted to show what can be achieved and they are very happy that the building is self sufficient even in winter.
Katikati Bowling Club
The club is one of the most recognised bowling clubs around the BOP. They own their own land and building and each year they look at what they can spend their money on. This year they looked at solar energy as the club is open during the day and not at night. It made sense to reduce the power bill and invest in solar energy
The club has installed 30 x Panasonic 290w panels = 8.7kw with a Fronius 8.2kw inverter
Hurunui College were converting from old coal boilers to heat pumps – so needed a solution for power. Solar seemed a good fit for them as the main power used is during the day. Power costs are now a huge cost to the school, so long term savings and the renewable energy of Solar where a great fit.
The College has installed - 88 x 290w Panasonic panels - total system size is 25kW + a Fronius Eco inverter which is also 25kW.
