Sustainable Building.

Builders and Developers

GREATER partnerships.

Solar PV systems are a great addition to many modern builds and increasingly being demanded by the home buyer. PowerSmart has worked with a number of builders and developers in offering solar electricity solutions.

The range of projects we have worked on, range dramatically from:

  • One off architectually designed homes - either connected to the grid or completely off grid
  • Partnerships like St Kilda Residential Development in Cambridge, Waikato where we have installed a solar electricity systems on every home within the development.
  • A full reticulated off grid electricity solution for a Fijian Resort development - Vunabaka. Here solar PV panels on individual houses power a centralised battery bank, which in turn supplies electricity to the whole community. 

PowerSmart offers Builders and Developers an integrated nationwide service to include solar power systems in their projects with complete customer and project support.  We make everything easy and include customer consultations and warranty support and of course system installation and commissioning.  At PowerSmart we like to work with Builders and Developers who need a solar power partner not supplier. A company that has the experience and expertise to design and build systems that last.
