SolarcityÂ and Panasonic have launched a national smart energy partnership to make saving money on energy for Kiwi this winter.
All existing and new solarZero customers will receive a free starter pack of 10 Panasonic LED light bulbs as part of their solar installation.
Stewart Fowler, CEO of Panasonic New Zealand said, â€œThis new initiative combines two home energy solutions that can cut power bills and help reduce New Zealandâ€™s carbon footprint. It allows homeowners to experience these benefits in one easy package through solarcity.â€
By installing solar with zero upfront costs, solarcity is making it possible for New Zealanders to take control of their power bills. It works closely with its customers to maximize the savings and environmental benefits of going solar.
â€œHomeowners currently pay 400% more to run a standard light bulb instead of an energy efficient LED bulb that gives the same amount of light,â€ says Andrew Booth, CEO of solarcity.
â€œThis winter, energy bills across New Zealand are the highest they have ever been and our gift, alongside Panasonic, of 10 LEDs could save families $220 a year, every year, across the 15-year life span of each bulb.â€
Lighting represents around 12% of a homeâ€™s electricity bill and costs the average household $220 per year.
LEDs can last 15 years or more and over their lifetime each LED lightbulb could save $290 compared to a standard bulb.
