To embrace sustainability. To battle climate change. To reset how this country is powered.

This is our nuclear-free moment

solarcity exists to return the power to the people. We believe in Kaitiakitanga and the Maori principle of guardianship. It’s a constant reminder we have a duty of care to look after our place, our people and the generations to follow.

It disturbs us the national system of energy generation and distribution is broken, prices keep rising, dirty power is the norm and 3 in 10 NZ homes live in poverty.

But we also believe that with our new solar communities, NZ can become a better place. We know clean, affordable, renewable energy is critical. And that as we build our ‘Grid for Good’, harness the abundant energy of the sun and share this power with other kiwis, NZ will become 100% renewable – probably much sooner than many people believe.
