What Our Customers Say

"The system is robust, maintenance free and well installed, We are very happy customers of PowerSmart and would recommend the company to anyone considering solar power generation. 

In November 2010 a grid connected solar array was installed at our new build crib at Taieri Beach on the Otago coast 35km southwest of Dunedin. PowerSmart planned the installation using the engineering drawings for the crib, and the system was installed in one day. It was March 2011 before the crib was sufficiently complete to turn the system on. Over the 620 days since it has generated 2914kw during 6492hrs of run time (daylight). The long term average generation is 450watts per operating hour or 4.5kw per operating day. On a sunny January day we are generating more than 12kw. 

The only problem with the installation had been getting our power supplier to install the import export meter (in part due to the Feb 2011 Christchurch earthquake), and then getting their meter readers to record the power flows correctly. Now that it is being read properly we have a large credit in our account and each month are earning enough from generation to pay all the electricity fixed charges and our usage and still gain some credit."
