Today solarZero, New Zealand’s leading solar energy company, announced enhancements to its solarZero energy service to
include high speed broadband and bundled benefits for Kiwi homeowners.
solarZero has curated a suite of smart home services that goes beyond simply installing solar panels and a smart battery
to homes around New Zealand. As part of their ‘smart home upgrade’ they have added a new high speed broadband bundle
powered by 2degrees, offering solarZero customers an all-in- one service.
solarZero customers have the option of adding high speed broadband, powered by 2degrees, to their solarZero energy
service, with two data speed packages available - solarZero Unlimited Broadband 100/20Mbps or solarZero Ultimate
Unlimited Broadband 900/400Mbps.
By adding broadband to their solarZero service, customers enjoy competitive pricing as well as additional benefits that
other broadband providers don’t offer, such as regular mysolarZero estore credits of $600-$800 every five years, a free
Amazon Echo Show 5 device valued at $140, and a free energy efficient Panasonic appliance valued up to $1500 upon
installation of the solarZero + broadband system to their home.
A free modem valued at $165 is also included as part of the broadband service. Altogether solarZero Unlimited Broadband
and Ultimate Unlimited Broadband customers receive additional benefits valued at $4,205 and $5,005 respectively over the
20 year term of the solarZero agreement.
“By bundling our solarZero energy service with broadband we offer our customers a curated range of services and products
to make their life simpler and easier, while saving more on their household’s outgoings. High speed data is essential to
run a smart home, providing enough capacity to accommodate the needs of our modern lifestyles, such as streaming
content, virtual meetings, online gaming, and running the smart appliances and devices that makes our lives easier.
Reliable energy and internet connection are more important than ever, with more people combining working and studying
from home into their lives,” says Neil Cowie, CEO, solarZero.
solarZero offers customers a fixed monthly fee that combines both their solarZero energy fee and the broadband option of
their choice, at a price that is fixed for 20 years. With broadband powered by 2degrees, and estore appliances from
Panasonic, solarZero have worked with their business partners to customise a bundled service package that is in line
with the company’s mission to deliver cost savings for Kiwis.
solarZero gives Kiwi homeowners an affordable way to go solar without paying for the system upfront, using a
subscription service, with a fixed monthly fee starting from $85+GST per month. The solarZero service integrates solar
panels, a 6.4kWh Panasonic battery, a smart energy platform to manage and monitor energy flow, and a net price-protected
rate of 8c/kWh for grid power 1 .
Bundled with the solarZero service fee, high speed broadband is available for an additional $74+GST/month for solarZero
Unlimited Broadband or $96+GST/month for solarZero Ultimate Unlimited Broadband, giving customers the ability to connect
their smart, sustainable homes, as well as save on their power bills in one bundled service fee.
The mysolarzero estore has a variety of smart and energy-efficient Panasonic home appliances to choose from at
competitive members-only prices. solarZero customers who add the broadband bundle receive a free appliance worth up to
$1,500 from the estore and continue to earn estore credits valued from $600- $800 to redeem on their choice of other
items from the estore every five years of their service agreement.
“Our customers now have the ability to lock in today’s prices for both their energy and broadband costs, which not only
provides savings over the entire term of their solarZero agreement, but they can enjoy additional benefits like free
energy- efficient appliances from our estore,” says Mr Cowie.
