  • We were impressed with Tiger Tukariri the Far North rep who supported us through the whole process. He was honest and straight up. The Solartive installation team were amazing and extremely professional. Impressed with Becky who answered any questions straight away and kept you updated through the process. They are definitely an excellent team to work with.

  • Awesome service. We purchased a solar package online but after it arrived we realized it wasn't as straight forward to install as we thought. I'm so grateful Solartive helped us out. They were very informative and recommended some much appreciated upgrades to suit our situation better. I am extremely happy with the service we received and the system is now up and running great.

  • We are really happy with the professional support from Solartive through the whole process . No question too small and very happy with your friendly efficient manner, knowledge, quality of service and final product. Running like a charm and it withstood its first big wild storm last night. Following installation of offgrid setup for one family member we decided to get Solartive to install solar panels on our house already on grid in town. Again very happy with the service, from the creative panel layout on a challenging roof, to the installation and support following. Happy to be supporting this great local business.

    Maraea Mentor, Whangārei
  • Great advice, service and installation Team. Follow up and after-sales were also first-rate. We are happy to recommend this company to anyone considering off-grid options. Good people and great product.
