See What Some of Our Customers Are Saying About Their Solar Journey

Steve Hansen

Christchurch 

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.

Dave and Megan Longland

Mt Albert, Auckland 

With a family of 6 at home, power was a significant monthly cost and so Dave and Megan investigated Solar. ‘ We will be saving around $1000 each year with our solar system’.

Joan and Bill McFlinn

Waiuku 

Joan and Bill decided to install solar as "we were looking towards retirement and to make savings." "The surprise is, to be honest, that in an overcast day it is still generating power, which is amazing".

Sir Michael Jones

Auckland 

"After researching solar we like the LG Panels and the whole science behind it". " We were able to have peace of mind that we were buying quality but at a really cost effective price... Every day we are saving"

Bill Vakasiuola

Papakura, Auckland 

Bill researched solar carefully and is thrilled to be saving up to 40% on his monthly power bill. ‘I am excited with the product and all the service that went with it’.

Zane Raphael

Greenhithe, Auckland 

Zane and Suzanne have achieved a 9 HomestarDesign rating for their recent home renovation. Their solar install was a critical requirement in this process but also something they were passionate about.

Jo and Richard Graham

Ponsonby, Auckland 

Jo & Richard have just completed a major rennovation on their stunning Ponsonby Villa. ‘We have two small children so future proofing the house was really important to us’.

Francine Shields

SPCA Whangarei 

At the SPCA "we try to be environmentallly friendly as we have to all live in the same environment". Harrisons helped with "understanding our situation and appreciating that need to be very careful with our funds".

Patrick Gleeson

Wellington 

Daryl was so easy to deal with. EVERYTHING was taken care of. The contractors who installed the solar system were excellent. The whole process was smooth and well worth it. Oct 17

Sheila Munro

Pokeno 

We found Nerum very open and he explained our options fully. From the time we decided to go ahead with the installation, all we had to do was change our power supplier to one who buys back excess solar energy - Nerum did all the rest. We are very happy with the whole transaction and are looking forward to receiving our first (smaller) power bill. Thanks Nerum. Oct 17

Gil and Carol Dudley

Invercargill 

We have found Andrew & Blake at Harrisons to be extremely efficient with quoting (giving us several option) and helpful with completing the paper work. They installed the solar panels and electrical work in a morning and had already organised for the meter to be changed over so this was done within a few days of the job completion also. We would certainly recommend them as they were not pushy and allowed us to make up our own mind. We are looking forward to our reduced power account and may one day go off the grid. Oct 17

Martyn and Linda Cox

Gisborne 

Very professional service from first enquiry through to installation of our solar power system. Great service from Bruce Emerson, Franchise owner of Harrisons Energy Solutions Hawke's Bay and Installers Rodger and Carol of CR Electrical Ltd Gisborne. Oct 17

Den Ouden

Whanganui 

In March we installed a solar system for Mrs Den Ouden in Wanganui. Her main motivation to go solar was to be able to harness the sun's power to generate power to run her home and save money on her power bills for the next 25+ years.

We installed a 3.42 kW system using 12 premium LG 285w Mono X panels with a Solar Edge Inverter with optimizers under each panel for maximum output. She upgraded the inverter to 5kW so in the future it will be easy to add more panels if required and a battery.

Even on a cloudy but light day in September her system produced over 18 kWh, so we are expecting to see some great results over the summer months.

I'd like to compliment Harrison’s Energy Solutions on the excellent service that has been provided to us while we have had our solar system installed.

After seeing your stall at the home show, we were quickly followed up after we showed interest in your product. Right from the start we were given plenty of information about the system itself and communication was always excellent regarding appointment times and installation dates. Both Daryl’s and Steve's professionalism and ability to get to the job done quickly exceeded my expectations. We initially chose your solar system because it offered the best price on the market, but we soon appreciated your attention to detail and helpful customer service.

Such a commitment to great customer service is to be commended. You can be sure that I will recommend Harrison’s Energy Solutions to anybody that is considering getting solar panels for their home.

Jess

Northland 

Just to express how impressed we were by the professional attitude of the gentlemen sent to install the solar panels. Efficient and obviously knew what they were doing, most reassuring to a customer. Not every trades person treats an older female customer so politely and as though they might understand most of what they are talking about. It was appreciated! And they left the work place clean and tidy.

Robert and Daphne

Wellington 

When my wife and I decided to go Solar energy, we contacted a number of companies to meet with us and discuss our requirements.

Harrisons was the only company which actually took time to go over the various options available and listen to us. We felt involved in the process and appreciated the time to design a solution that matched our needs.

The entire process was a good experience for us. We ended up with a price competitive system and working with people that cared about what we as customers wanted,

We are happy to recommend Harrisons and our experience with them has been outstanding. There is a reason why we tell our friends that Harrisons are number 1 in solar. They listen, they care, and they deliver.

Noeleen and Bev Tucker

Whangarei 

I would like to give some feedback about our solar installation. We are so thrilled with it and how it's making a difference to our power bills each month. I don't believe we could have earned the same amount of interest on the amount we outlaid for the installation, compared to the savings in power a/c's each month (that's the way we are looking at it, rather than 'when will we get our money back'). The other thing of note is the SUPERB service, help and guidance we received from James Elliot - he was fantastic from start to finish and I would not hesitate to recommend him as salesperson of the year! :o)

Keep up the good work Harrisons, and thank you from Noelene and Bev. - April 2017

Auckland 

"Everyone from Harrisons that we had any contact with were very pleasant, informative and service couldn't have been better. Like to specially thank the installer. He went to extra trouble to install the inverter in garage so it couldn't be seen"

Wes and Laraine Marsh

Auckland 

Having thought and talked about installing Solar Power for sometime, we contacted Dan Brebner at Harrisons Energy for help in how to go about the installation of Solar panels.

Dan explained to us about Solar Energy and all the different aspects of it. He pointed out how the energy is stored and what would be the best options for us. His explanations were very clear and precise and we were given different options and how they would effect us.

We decided which options we preferred and asked Dan to go ahead with a quote which we decided to accept.

We did to have to do anything, as Dan took care of everything. It seems a very complicated procedure but Dan knew exactly what had to be done and everything was done correctly first time.

We have no hesitation in recommending Dan Brebner as his knowledge and manner are totally professional. Very happy and Very satisfied - Thanks Dan.

Judith Clarke

Glenfield, Auckland 

I’d like to take this opportunity to let you know that this has been a very painless process for us, and yourself have been very helpful and professional.

We are very pleased with our solar installation. We would be happy to recommend Harrisons to anyone looking for a solar panel installation - please can you pass this on to all concerned. Thank you for your help.

Lester

Remuera, Auckland 

I just want to say Jason and his team did an amazing job and were all very professional and courteous.

This is the best job that I have seen by any tradespeople that have worked on our property.

We would strongly recommend Harrisons and I have already given a referral to you.

With very best wishes.

Simon

Whanganui 

Firstly let me compliment you on the two installers that arrived this morning. Both Zane & Hayden are a great asset to your business, friendly outgoing guys who took time before they started work to make sure I was aware of what would be done where and most importantly why, and it was all conveyed in a manner I could understand, site was left clean and tidy, small things, I know, but we have had a number of contractors on site in the last 3 months and they could really do with taking a leaf out of your staffs books.

Bev, thank you for juggling your work schedule this week to fit our install in, it really was appreciated.

I would definitely be happy to recommend everyone involved to any prospective clients.

Thank you again.

Gail Lye

Christchurch 

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.

Dave and Megan

Mt Albert 

We searched online and spoke to a few people before getting quotes for solar panels. Once we’d decided to go ahead we invited the two companies we considered to be the best on the market to come along, measure up and quote. Dan Brebner from Harrisons Solar give us the best presentation and spoke in depth about the product he could install. While the other quote was marginally cheaper it was not all about the cheapest price on the day. Harrison Solar panels were a superior product to the others on the market and had the highest output. Our first full month of power usage with Harrisons Solar was February 2016. The power bill for the month was just $105 compared to $240 for the same period in 2015. I am very happy with that and look forward to the batteries being installed. I read in the news that power companies were about to put prices up again and just before winter. It was a perfect time for us to go Solar.

Chris

Mission Bay 

Harrisons recently installed a solar energy system and loft insulation at our home in Mission Bay. We were very impressed with the service and the end result. We dealt with Dan Brebner, who I think must be one of the most organised and reliable people I've met. The initial consultation was unhurried and informative. There was no pressure. The work was then carried out efficiently, to a very high standard, by pleasant people who left no mess. Dan then monitored the system, gave us feedback, and checked we were happy. The entire experience was excellent.
