Harrisons help Northland Homeowners on Fair Go
In July of this year, Fair Go talked to two Northland couples who were keen to find Mr Farmer, Director of The Solar Company (no longer trading).
Long story short, he charged them a deposit for a solar system in 2019, didn’t install any solar panels and left customers across the upper North Island out of pocket before skipping the country to enjoy an extended holiday. To date, customers are without answers and he can only be found via his Instagram photos relaxing by a pool.

Solar batteries give homeowners control and independence
There is still a wide misconception solar panels need heat to make energy. When in fact, solar panels need light – not heat. Yes, panels make less energy in the winter, simply because the days are shorter, but even on the shortest days, solar panels generate all, or most of the power you’ll need to wash your dishes and clothes, use the dryer, lights, heat pump and appliances.
So, it comes as no surprise that homeowners often ask “if solar panels generate lots of energy, why would I need a solar battery?”
