Switching to a Brighter Future
By Paul Makumbe, CEO of Sunergise, a leader in full-service solar power systems for businesses and governments, providing custom design, financing, installation and monitoring in New Zealand.
A Green Recovery
There is intensified public pressure to increase our energy generation from renewable energy sources as we re-prioritise and plan our recovery post-COVID-19.
It’s a chance to do better for the environment and for businesses to capture the economic benefits and save on outgoings. Solar will be key to building a sustainable future both economically and environmentally.
Economic Benefit From Solar
With no capital outlay, the installation of solar panels on commercial roof space realises an opportunity to save on energy costs whilst offsetting carbon. Panels provide decades of savings in power costs, and a clean, renewable energy source, avoiding tonnes of carbon from entering the atmosphere while feeding surplus power back into the grid.
Sunergise provides sustainable, reliable, cost-effective solar power services for businesses, creating an asset from unused roof real estate.
How it Works
Once your site is assessed for the optimum solar PV system, we design, finance, and install a custom solution for available roof space, or adjacent vacant land.
The custom designs are typically installed within six weeks. Installation commonly takes around three days with minimal disruption - and results are monitored at no cost to the client.
We offer an instant saving on your current power bill and fix your solar power rate for the longer term.
If you are grid-connected, we can cater for the majority of your daytime electricity requirements.
If you are off-grid, Sunergise can offer a complete solution with storage and backup to meet your power needs.
Solar's Contribution to a Green Economy
Globally, governments and businesses must ensure that climate change is mitigated as a matter of survival. Solar is in prime position as an effective, scalable, affordable solution to the problem of clean energy generation. A green, circular economy anchored in naturebased solutions is one that is geared toward economic and environmental benefit.
New Zealanders will expect corporates to be accountable. Sunergise has installed panels for clients including Coca-Cola Amatil, Goodman Fielder, and Colenso BBDO. Mike Higgins, CFO of Colenso BBDO in Auckland, enthuses about the success of the roof top installation. “Our relationship with Sunergise is a major part in our drive to help clean up our environment. It’s played a big part in helping us achieve Gold Enviromark.”
Sharing the Vision
As part of the Todd Group, we’re on a mission to secure a brighter, more productive future for businesses and communities around New Zealand by providing high quality, clean, affordable energy. Increasing solar in the energy mix helps to reduce current power costs and can provide certainty around future costs. As part of developing a business with sustainability at its core, we aim to make clean energy affordable to all.
