Calculate your  solar savings

Your land. Your sun. Your savings

As you know, the New Zealand sun can be a powerful force. Now the same energy that grows grass and ripens crops can also provide the power to drive your on-farm operations.

With a World Solar system mounted on your farm buildings, you could reduce your reliance on the grid and cut your energy overhead. And if your shed isn’t suitable for a solar system, we can look at a ground-mounted Solar PV system.

Solar power systems are perfect for farming, horticulture and viticulture. You work when the sun is up, and that’s when your solar system is at its most productive. To make the most of solar energy, talk to us today.

The Proof

Powering the shed. Powering the grid

Case Study

How World Solar works on a Southland farm

Up to 20% solar savings for dairy

Hughie and Diane Mathieson’s dairy shed near Riverton was the first in the South Island to have a Solar PV system installed by World Solar. Hughie says, “I’ve calculated the investment to produce a 15-20% rate of return. The panels come with a 25-year performance warranty so that gives us a guaranteed long-term saving, and who knows how much conventional power will cost in the future?”

The facts

  • The Mathiesons used 131,400kWh in 2013 at an average of 10,950kWh a month or 360kWh a day
  • Their shed roof now has 120 x 250w panels, which is a 30kW system with the capability to cut power bills by at least 30%
  • The system feeds power back into the grid during winter while the dairy shed is not in use
  • Most savings come from reducing power consumption from the grid
  • World Solar took care of all of the paperwork including council and grid approval as well as solar meter changeover
