Go Solar with Genesis

Take control of your home energy with Genesis solar.

Solar enables you to generate your own power, with the possibility of being paid for excess solar electricity you produce.

With a Genesis solar power package, you can see how much electricity you’ve generated, used and exported with real time Home and Solar monitoring. You will also gain access to high quality components and experienced installers.

You don’t have to be a Genesis customer to get solar with us. To find out if solar is right for you, book a consultation with our experienced team today.


Going Solar is simple

We’ll handle everything from your home assessment to installation and support.


Is solar right for you?

Solar Home

Is someone home during the day?

Solar generates energy during daylight hours. Is there anyone home to use it?

Solar Home

Do you have electric hot water?

This can account for up to 30% of your energy bill and partners well with solar.

Solar Home

Is your roof in good condition?

Solar panels can last for 25 years. Will your roof last that long?

Solar Home

Do you have a large roof area?

North facing is best but east and west can work.


If you’ve answered yes to most of these questions and you own the house, then solar is probably a good fit for you.

Should I get a battery?

Battery technology is changing fast with exciting new developments happening all the time. Genesis are currently offering the Panasonic Home Battery and are evaluating other battery technologies.

When considering a battery purchase it is important to do your own research and think about what you hope to achieve with it. We’ll talk to you about this in your consultation – if you’re interested just check the box on the booking form and we will discuss this possibility with you. However, if you are primarily focused on having a back-up supply of electricity, you might want to consider a back-up generator which may be a better solution.

If you’d like to find out if your home is right for solar, fill in the form below and we’ll be in touch.

Electricity buy back – HomeGen

HomeGen is for customers who generate their own electricity and wish to sell the electricity they don't use back to the grid. It’s an add on to your pricing plan. We pay you 8 cents per kWh of energy exported to the grid with the total for your billing period showing as a separate credit line on your bill.

It’s available to Genesis electricity customers who have approved generation equipment (such as solar, wind or micro-hydro) installed, which produces less than 50 kW output.

To get set up for HomeGen you need your generation equipment and an import/export meter, also known as a two- way meter. This meter costs $100 including installation and will replace your existing meter(s). There could be additional charges to set you up, including costs from your network company to connect your generation equipment to the grid.

To order your import/export meter and get paid for your excess solar electricity you produce, complete the HomeGen application form here.

If you need help with this process, please get in touch [email protected]
