Yes. It’s cheaper to power an EV using solarZero compared to grid power. How much cheaper depends on where you live. In Auckland it’s about 27% cheaper. This is based on the average cost of grid power at 24 cents/kWh compared to solarZero at 17.5 cents/kWh.

No, a solar-only system will shut down automatically during a power cut. However, all the systems we now install include a battery and hybrid inverter. This means the panels can continue to generate electricity during a power cut. That electricity will power selected circuits in your home and charge the battery.

The main parts include the roof-mounted solar panels, the hybrid inverter, battery, isolators and energy management computer which are housed in a single cabinet, and the electrical sub board. There are also railings for attaching the panels to your roof and cabling that runs from the panels to the inverter and to your switchboard.

Inverter – changes the energy produced by the panels and stored in the battery in to usable AC power

DC and AC isolators – Isolate the flow of current at the point of the isolator

Battery – Stores energy
