For the second year PowerSmart has gone home with more than one award from the annual SEANZ dinner. This year PowerSmart won awards for 'Best Solar PV Installation with Storage' for the Tuvalu and Northern Cooks project and 'Largest Solar PV Installation in New Zealand' for the Sylvia Park Mall in Auckland. .
Although it is always nice getting recognised for doing the biggest grid tied solar power system in New Zealand, being awarded the BEST Solar PV Installation with Storage is immensely satisfying for the whole team at PowerSmart. The Northern Cooks and Tuvalu Project which is being done with funding from the New Zealand Aid Programme and in partnership with the governments of Tuvalu and the Northern Cooks has been very challenging and been part of PowerSmart for well over a year.
The Northern Cooks part of the project was completed earlier this year but due to delays caused by Cyclone Pam, we are yet to finish all of the Tuvalu installs. We are on course to finish before the end of 2015, which will be a great excuse to celebrate once again.
