Why choose Solar PV?

Save money on your power bill

Increase the value of your home




The sun is an indispensable source of energy, one that can be easily harnessed to power your home or office. Solar power enables you to take control of your power bills, maintain independence from fluctuating electricity prices, and live and work in a more environmentally friendly way.

The time for solar is now. As power prices continue to track upwards and the initial upfront cost of solar is steadily decreasing, installing Solar PV will make an immediate and noticeable impact on your monthly power bill. It takes an average of only seven to ten years to make back upfront costs with electricity savings. And by slightly altering energy usage habits, by setting appliances to run during daytime hours for example, the payback period can decrease even further. With an impressive output warranty of 25 years, installing a solar array is truly an investment in your future and furthermore will enhance the resale value of your home.

Today, more and more Mitsubishi Black Diamond Solar Panels are being installed on the roofs of homes and businesses across New Zealand. Through careful system design, selecting quality products and a focus on self-consumption, solar power can allow you to become virtually self-sufficient and is a step towards both financial stability and environmentally friendly living.

Why Choose Mitsubishi Electric Solar – Count on ME

Mitsubishi Electric PV modules are known for their exceptional quality and high reliability in the most extreme environments. Our range of products includes high-efficiency, eco-friendly modules that can be used for grid-tie, off-grid, ground-mount and roof-mount systems. When it comes to clean, reliable energy, you can count on Mitsubishi Electric.

Economic benefits of solar power

As solar PV is now increasingly affordable the payback period (the time it takes for your system to recover its total upfront cost) for solar PV now commonly sits around 7-10 years. Having paid for itself, any energy generated by your solar system after this period can be viewed from one perspective as ‘free’ power, leaving you with upwards of 15 years of electricity being generated for free!

By slightly altering your usage behaviour, by setting appliance timers to run during the day for example, your daytime base load will increase. This increase in self-consumption results in fewer units of electricity being purchased from the grid and significantly decreases your energy bill. If sized correctly your system can allow you to become virtually self-sufficient!

Characteristics of solar power

Solar power systems generate electricity with zero emission of CO2, SOx, Nox or other gases associated with global warming and acid rain.

Solar power systems can convert nature's sunlight into an unlimited supply of energy.

The amount of sunlight striking earth in any given hour contains light energy equivalent to the total world energy consumption for one year.

An indispensable source of energy

At Mitsubishi Electric we are dedicated to promoting solar power systems as an indispensable source of clean energy for the future. Photovoltaic (PV) modules, which comprise the core of the technology, drew much attention in Kyoto, Japan in December 1997, at the Third Session of the Conference of the Parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP3), generally referred to as "The Kyoto Protocols."

At the conference, developed nations agreed to take measures to reduce the production of greenhouse gases such as CO2. One of the most promising approaches is the adoption of solar power systems, which generate electricity with zero emission of CO2. At Mitsubishi Electric, we approach this commitment with the utmost sincerity.

Abundant solar power all year round

New Zealand’s geographical landscape and temperate climate means it is perfectly suited to harnessing the suns energy. Many cities across the nation boast solar energy resources significantly higher than cities in Germany and Japan, countries with some of the highest solar PV uptake rates in the world!

This abundance of solar energy spans the length of the country and means places in the lower South Island, that have some of the lowest annual sunshine hours, can on any given day experience solar energy levels higher than that of known solar hotspots i.e. Nelson, largely considered one of the most sunny places for the uptake of solar PV. Not only that, but the performance of panels actually increases as outdoor temperatures fall.
