Our local Canterbury Solar Expert

Conan Carter

Carter is one of Business Owners for Harrisons for the whole Canterbury region.

As a keen mountain biker, Carter spends a lot of time in the hills – a pastime that has made him well aware of just how many sunshine hours the Canterbury region is blessed with - surprisingly, the equivalent of Auckland. Couple that with a busy family and a large power bill and it’s easy to see why Carter got interested in Solar as the energy of the future.

Now several years after buying the local Harrisons franchise, he is definitely the ‘go-to’ expert for Solar PV systems. Carter is experienced at working with builders and developers on both residential and commercial installations. He has even helped a significant number of customers go completely off-grid.

If you’d like an energy-efficient home but don’t know where to start – simply start by getting Carter around to your place for a free energy audit. He’ll show you how much you could be saving with solar. And while there’s no obligation to buy, if you do, you can take advantage of Harrison’s competitive package deals and quality installations - all backed by comprehensive warranties. We also offer a range of payment options to suit, and are one of the only suppliers to offer FlyBuys.

Carter and the team offer more than solar – talk to him about making your home warmer, drier and healthier with insulation, ventilation and heat-pumps – you’ll be warmer in winter and cooler in summer.


Here’s what the locals had to say...

We used Harrisons expertise to be guided on the best system for us. The LG / SolarEdge combination was perfect. ‘Even when I am away overseas, I can see how the house is running via an app on my phone’ as the SolarEdge system comes complete with cloud-based monitoring systems.



We decided to invest in solar and a home battery, and looked online for trusted solar suppliers and installers. We opted for Harrisons and were so glad we did. From comprehensive quote and timely communication to expert installation. We didn't have to lift a finger and couldn't be happier with the end result. We are contemplating an additional battery and wouldn't trust anyone but Harrisons to install it.

Excellent service. Experienced and knowledgeable staff. Carter explained everything in detail so we understood exactly how their solar systems work and the benefits it would have for us. He gave us pricing options and gave us the choice based on our needs and our budget. The whole process from the introduction to the install was quick and well organised. I would definitely recommend them to anyone considering a solar system for their home.



We had both a heat pump and solar panels installed. Everyone involved was great to deal with, great communication, very tidy installers, and the job was done on the days arranged. Overall we are very pleased and we would highly recommend Harrison’s to anyone who was looking to install these products.

We have just recently had solar power installed and I would like to say how impressed I was with the service we received from Carter. He was just great, always keeping us informed about progress and nothing was a problem. It is so great to have a sales person who does keep in contact and keep you in the loop. This is something that is very rare these days. Over all we have had a great experience with your company and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you in the future.
