Solar/battery vendors in New Zealand

My boat its currently in the northern part of the north island, NZ and I am looking for a reliable vendor to help me with my solar and battery upgrade project. Wondering if any readers have any experience with suppliers in this part of the world?

Re: Solar/battery vendors in New Zealand

Vendors no, as it is much cheaper to import, especially if you have a TIE. For solar panels just Google search NZ-based installers and you can sometimes get good deals from them (hard panels for residential installs).

However, I can strongly recommend Cameron Murray of TransMarinePro in Opua for system design and electrical work. He can project manage a DIY install as well and help with purchases.

Re: Solar/battery vendors in New Zealand

Thank you. I have been in email contact with Cameron and first impression is very positive. I was hoping for alternatives either in Whangarei or Opua area but so far haven't found much.
