Prime Road, Grey LynnResidential Solar + Battery
We recently installed a 21 panel + battery system on this beautiful family home in Grey Lynn. Elke and Marcus have 3 boys, so their power bills can really get up there! Since the system has been in place they've seen some awesome savings - their last power bill delivered a $15 credit from the solar they had sold back to the grid...absolutely nothing to pay! Over the summer months, it's likely they won't have a single power bill to pay and their credits over summer will go a long way to ofsetting their winter bills too.
Elke and Marcus were very motivated by being part of the move to a better and brighter future for their boys, and for generations to come.
"Lightforce installed 21 panels on my roof, and then a battery a couple of months later, both at an excellent price. Everyone involved has been friendly, knowledgable, skilled and very patient with all my questions. The installation of both the panels and the battery went really well, and the savings are incredible. Getting solar has been such a happy experience, and with Luke and his team, you feel like you've made a whole bunch of friends as well. - Elke Chilwell

Rakino IslandOff-Grid SolarView More
Rakino IslandOff-Grid Solar
We recently installed this off-grid system for a group of holiday houses belonging to one of our lucky cleints on Rakino Island – a fantastic project in a stunning spot in the Huaraki Gulf. With 3 buildings on the site, our off-grid sytem currently powers the homestead and the cottage. After being without power for over 100 years, we also fully wired the homestead so the family could start enjoying this magical spot for the upcoming summer.
We had decided we wanted to do solar once and do it right. We have just spent about a month living off-grid and haven't had the slightest hiccup with the system. The guys from Lightforce worked tirelessly to fit us in with challenging weather, a difficult house and more work than any of us expected, to deliver a brilliant result.When we purchased the property, we knew we needed to sort power, water and sewage. Power was the only item to be fully sorted and was done better and more thoroughly than we had expected and ahead of schedule. We are still waiting for the other two items to be sorted. Our Christmas holiday would have been very different without your help! - Hayden McKenzie
