Our local Bay of Plenty Solar Expert

Jacob Wingate

Jacob is one of the franchise owners/operators for Harrisons in Bay of Plenty and Coromandel

Jacob moved to sunny Bay of Plenty in 2012 to enjoy his passion for surfing and walking in the hills, and has immediately become involved in the local community via mentoring youth in the Project K program run through the Foundation for Youth Development. But it’s his belief that the products and services he can offer to make Kiwi homes and businesses happier, healthier and more cost effective that has helped drive the Harrisons Energy team’s success story.

Jacob has always had an interest in energy and studied Natural Resource Management at Massey University. He offers the full package – from expert analysis and free, no-obligation, in-home energy audits, to expert installation, warranties he stands by, FlyBuys and a range of payment options – and brings quality brands and products to a wide range of customers with different requirements.

The region’s high hours of sunshine mean that solar is particularly popular for households wanting to cut their power bills – but plenty of people can see how insulation, ventilation and heat pumps ceate the right ingredients for a healthy home. Jacob says he’s extremely proud to run a business where he can enhance the quality of everyday people’s lives throughout the Eastern and Western Bay of Plenty as well as Coromandel regions.

“We embrace every day with the notion that the business is there to help people,” he says. “Our region is such a perfect environment for solar production and use. Given the great sunshine hours and cool sea breezes we get make conditions for solar perfect! I take pride in providing a great experience for the customer. Right from initial consultation and information gathering through to the installation. We have the perfect individuals in the specific areas of the business to ensure your interaction with us is a pleasant one.”

So contact Jacob and the Harrisons team today for a free, no-obligation, in-home energy audit – ask about our interest-free payment options, and regional council or Heartland Bank payment plans – and take the first step to a warmer, healthier, more energy-efficient future.

Jacob was extremely patient and helpful, explaining the alternatives available and process of conversion to solar thoroughly. He also provided suggestions about how to best use our system for further savings. Even though we installed our system just before one of the wettest winters I can remember, we're already seeing considerable savings. Oct 2017
